Li'L League by xanykaos Li'L League by xanykaos
Yeah, all those pencilled pages that I worked my tail off to finish in time for Editor's Day? Those were okay (the reaction every time an editor opened my portfolio was "Oh hey! Booster and Beetle!"). But the silly doodles I did a few months back on scrap pieces of bristol and unprofessionally taped against the back of a page? Yeah, those were apparently the most popular thing in there.

Well. I did have fun drawing these little suckers. And I've got a couple of scenes with 'em that went over well too. Problem is, they really require coloring and I really don't like coloring. But hey, here they are!


I'd like to get some of the rest of JLI/JLE in there too--Flash, Animal Man, Captain and Mary Marvel (okay, she's Superbudies, but still). For the record, I loves me some Max Lord.

All (c) DC comics, of course.

Max Lord. Currently known as a villain who shot Ted Kord in the head and tried to take over the world (of course!), but at the time of the JLI he was more of a chessmaster-type. He was the guy who basically assembled the who league, most of it covertly, and then ran the league. Always shady and a little untrustworthy, but someone who genuinely tried to be a better person despite himself.

...possibly my second or third favorite JLI-er.

Ahh, thank you so much. : D I've always been more of an Image girl, myself, but the DCAU has gotten me interested in DC a bit more. Always happy to learn more.

That would be Mr. Miracle, husband of Big Barda, the rather intimidating-looking lady to his left.

Hi, I selected your drawing along the best Elongated Man fan art to be featured in an article of the the "Ralph Dibny, the World-Famous Elongated Man, blog" (that's [link]). It is properly credited to you and includes a link to your Deviantart portfolio (which will hopefully contribute positively to your traffic). Please reach me at that article's comment section if you want me to take it off or modify the information that I captured or if you have another drawing that I should put there.

Thank you and great job!

I've always liked the B, C and D list heroes over the A listers (though there are exceptions like GL and Superman), so the JLI has always interested me.

And poor, overhyped Batman, being stuck on a team with Blue Beetle and Booster Gold. IMO both of them run rings around him in terms of awesomness ;)

He sent me some sample scripts to work off of. I mean, there's not much he can do with those guys, since they're DC, but I'm just glad that he liked 'em enough to want him. Puts me on his radar, I guess. Next stop--samples!

...I just wish I really knew how to adapt this style properly.
