PR Green Lantern redesign by JohntheMurray PR Green Lantern redesign by JohntheMurray
Finally finished!

This is for a Green Lantern redesign contest at Project Rooftop. [link] I'm not a huge Green Lantern fan but I really wanted to be a part of it. So I did a lot of research on John Stewart. I knew him best from Justice League and I can relate to his character more so than Hals. He's an analytical architect and former marine acting currently as an intergalactic law enforcement officer of the Green Lantern Corps. I tried to reflect that in the suit.

-Lightweight armor strengthened by the ring. Sufficient on its own.

-Logo on his shoulders because everything about him tells me so.

-Ring generated battle mask, because that's always useful.

I plan on redesigning Beast too, for fan art Friday.

You didn't stand a chance at winning this because your design is actually practical, looks good, makes sense in the GL universe and isn't bonkers insane. Because judging by the winner these are obviously qualities the judges were not looking for in a redesign lol.

hahaha, I thought Fangs design was cool but I honestly didn't think it would win first place. I was definitely rooting for McClain so, I'm glad to see that. But, design wise I don't feel third place deserved it.

You know what I think your right, in a way. They weren't looking for imaginative yet practical re-imaginings of the suite. They were looking for simply, a different suit that the characters could wear in current continuity. And that's generally boring, unless of-course, your designing Guy Gardner.

idk man, maybe we'll be on the honorable mentions, if they have a post for that.
