Eh, why not post em!

The Nighthawk

The Nighthawk was an old diner in Austin, which has since been bought and remodeled as the somewhat mediocre Frisco.

I'm sure the Nighthawk was much cooler.

Green Lantern, First Flight uniform

After watching the new Green Lantern animated movie, I wanted to take a stab at its take on the GL uniform. The costume details have had relatively small variations over the last fifty years, thanks in part to the near-flawless original design by Gil Kane.

The First Flight version has some elements of the current comics design, specifically the angled cutoff of green at the waist, but has its own elements that haven't been seen before. It's got more of an armored approach on the shoulders. Probably its most prominent departure is the absence of the classic white forearm gloves-- replaced by solid green arm bands that expose black gloves at the wrist.

Green Lantern ala Jeff Johnson

I have always been a fan of Johnson's, and while he's not normally associated with Green Lantern, his visits to the character have always stuck with me. It's a softer approach with a great knack for shape and shadow, with a small boon of being closer to my own comfort zone.
