DC Universe Vol. 10: Fan Faves by alexmax DC Universe Vol. 10: Fan Faves by alexmax
Okay, this one took a long time to make! This time, the theme of this lineup, as the title implies, is characters that have been requested on comments from other volumes in this series, or characters I like that I couldn't fit into other "team" lineups. So, yes, it's a little eclectic this time around.

If there is a character request missing (like Circe, who had a couple of comments asking for her), it probably is because I have plans to include him/she in a lineup later.

Harley Quinn: A few asked for her, and here it is! Tried to not copy exactly the BTAS version, so I think it's more inspired by the comics (Hughes and Dodson). I normally don't say this, but I like how she turned out.

Donna Troy: Went for the starfield outfit, instead of the red leotard from her stint with the Teen Titans. Also added some details from the Ame-comi statue I saw during my googling research.

Speedy: He probably looks more Red Arrow/Arsenal than Speedy. Also tried to incorporate some details from the Green Arrow I made for Vol. 2.

Ravager: I don't know much about this character, but someone asked for her. I'm planning to do Deathstroke eventually, so this was good practice.

Animal Man: I liked a lot the first few issues of the Grant Morrison run for Animal Man, but have been unable to collect the rest.

Captain Marvel Jr.: This is one character that had no demand for, but I couldn't fit into any other lineup. With him, the "core" Marvel Family is complete.

Swamp Thing: I've never read any Swamp Thing, but want to. I have vague memories of the live action tv series. Made him part of this group to add some variety, and not always have "human" figures.

Hope you like them! :B

This is great! Two of my faves are here - Troia & CM3. Very seldom I see these two characters tackled by such talented artists. I would love to see you do this lineup - Superman, Thor, Shazam, Captain Britain, Hyperion, Sentry, Gladiator & Blue Marvel. I can only imagine how awesome it will be! Just a fan request here. :)

Love the changes you made to Donna's costume. Her original "starfield" one didn't have anything that let you know she was related to Wonder Woman.

Like I mentioned in the description, I borrowed some ideas from a statue DC made some years ago. :)

They look fantastic!!! I love them. XD
By the way, the costume of Donna is similar to my OC from Young Justice. I think I did unconciously because I too saw the Ame-comi statue while googling. :)

Generally I'm not a fan of the whole ame-comi thing (or manga/anime artstyle), but that particular Donna Troy was kinda cool.

:clap: Amazing! :glomp: Wonderful choice on Donna by the way, I love the details from the Ame-Comi (and I'm glad you didn't do all the crazy colors :phew: ). I'm also a huge fan of Roy/Arsenal & Rose/Ravager, love both looks! And of course, who *doesn't* love Harley?? The Joker in-the-box, tho? Genius! Can't wait for the second wallpaper, whenever it comes out. :floating:

Yep, she is one of several characters that were left out by DC's reboot. Others I can think of are Jade (don't think Alan Scott can father her now, can he?) but more importantly Wally West (because they now have Barry Allen who is sooo much more interesting /sarcasm).

Really? I'm totally loving everything about it, particularly the background.

It's always nice to see someone with massive talent being humble, though. :)

Animal Man is more or less 100% like he is in the comics, or at least that's what I thought. The other 2 do have some minor changes :B

Love this entire set! I've just been on your profile looking for a way to make a request and have decided I must be blind...

Anyway, I'd like to say you've done almost all of my heroic faves, but may I request (someday in the future) Vigilante (Greg Saunders, the only one for me...and especially in JLU form) and Shining Knight? I'd love to see your take on these guys. I'd also love to see the pets/hero animals, like Krypto and Winged Victory, but if you don't do animals that's okay.

First of all, thank you.

You are totally right there is nothing in my profile for people to make requests or anything like that, mostly because I don't want to commit to doing stuff I might not be able to deliver because of work. Most of the fanart is done during my spare time.

I can't say how soon I'll be able to make Vigilante and Shining Knight, but I'll add them to my "To Do" list :). There are so many other characters I want to tackle first, Hope you understand.

Hey, noooo problem...everybody's busy these days (my time is taken up with trying to figure out how I'm going to pay all the bills while the gas has gone up fifty cents in the last ten days...as I need the car to get to work).

So I totally understand, and since I do keep a watch on my fave artists, I will likely add your gallery to my list so I don't miss it when you DO put Greg and Justin in a drawing. I was thinking it would likely be a Seven Soldiers tribute or the like (though I'll take those two anytime...), since that's the group they're mainly thought of in.

But keep up the good work and I look forward to your next art posting!

Thank you.

Well, I did some animation during my college years (I was ok with motion graphics, but didn't do much character animation), and later did a little animation after graduation, but ever since I've stuck with illustration and design. I like drawing, but animation itself is very time-consuming, and probably not my thing. :constipated:

Aw, man, that's not cool (about your job)... but who knows maybe something can happen where you can pursue work in a more creative capacity?

Me? Well, I'm not exactly where I'd like me to be, but at the same time, I should count myself lucky, because it could be worse.

In a way it's not all that different that we end up drawing what we really like in the spare time.

Great expression on Swamp Thing's face. Captures a part of him you don't see a lot of the time that he is depicted.

He strikes me as a calm, force of nature, and not a raging hulk-like creature. But I've never read the comics, so I might be way off.

IŽll have to find a place for her :) I already did a "Batgirl", although it was Barbara Gordon. I've tried not to "repeat" superheroes that are too similar (for example: I already did Wally West's Flash, and I have zero intentions of drawing Barry Allen), but the Cassandra Cain Batgirl costume was very cool.

You could draw her in her new outfit. It's not as good but it isn't a repeat.

And I agree, her costume was awesome.

I had no idea she had a new costume.

I'm reading wikipedia, and it has a pic of it. Too "regular" ninja, heheh. Well, wiki says that Tim Drake tells her he want's her back as a Batgirl, and hands her a copy of the old costume, so I guess that outfit will come back soon. I just wish DC didn't had several Flashes, Supermen, Batmen, Robinses, Batgirls, etc. etc. running around at the same time (and that's not even counting the multiple earths nonsense). They need to fix that if they want me to read comics again lol.
