Dev-Em

Dev-Em, youth from the planet Krypton who was on his way to becoming a criminal but eventually reformed. He is also one of Krypton's only survivors of it's destruction. He is a member of the Interstellar Counter Intelligence Corps and ally to the Legion of Super Heroes.
The BG is a wall paper from an alien landscape wallpapers website, don't really know who's the autor.
This one took me some time. No matter what I did, I wasn't happy with it. I did many passes to get it to this point where I'm ok with it. I've tried some different shadowing that resembled the original costume design. I've also added new little touches here and there. I thought the original design was kind of plain and needed something extra. 
Hope you like it.
Cheers

Virus


Virus was a prospective member of the Legion of Super Heroes, but she was rejected. She had poor control over her ability to cause others to be sick. Obviously her powers are causing others to be sick.
The BG is from Pixel Lab, was made by Remco. Nice website where they have free C4D 3D models.
Stay in good health, take your vitamins and mineral. Don't get any viruses, keep that inmune system high. Til' next time folks.

Ringtoss

Ringtoss is a student at the Legion Academy. He is an alien with the ability to project rings of energy.
I guess the Legion Academy was renamed the United Planets Military Academy at that time.
For those who doesn't know, this is part of the Legion of Super Heroes in the 30th Century at the DC Comics Universe.
The BG is from Tyler Mcintosh.
More Legionnaires coming up...

Plant Lad

Real name Noyt Echad, Plant Lad had the power to change into various plant forms. he was one of various super heroes who was captured by Nardo, the warden of a prison planet. Some Legion members were also captured at one point, and after many attempts to escape they succeeded. But prior to the jail break, Noyt's nerves cracked while working in the prison yard. When he changed into the form of a Venusian Octopus Vine, he attacked the guards and was shot to death. The end.
The BG is from a wall decoration poster, I don't know who the artist is. 
This was supposed to be my St Patty's Day post. A little delayed based on an eventful weekend.
Note the arm detail was inspired by Bernie Wrightson who just passed away on March 19th. 
Thank you for the inspiration and all the amazing art Bernie, rest in peace.

Batgirl

This version of Batgirl first appear in the Tales of the Legion of Super Heroes number 339 as a tryout.
This is not Barbara Gordon, the regular Batgirl we all know. This is a futuristic version in the 30th Century. I know very little of this character but I thought it was fun to draw and color. 
Feel free to comment more details on her if you like for other fans that may not know much about her like myself. It's slightly resembling the Bruce Timm style as a tribute. 
Hope you are liking my Legion tryouts, the most ridiculous ones are the best.
Cheers

Arm Fall Off Boy

Arm fall Off Boy is perhaps the most famous Legion reject, most because he is considerer to be one of the most ridiculous characters in comics. 
The bg was made by the talented Nils Eckhardt. Modified by myself to match the character better.
Legion rejects are sure fun to draw and funny as well. 
I may switch to actually doing some real Legionnaires, whatever is left...
Any suggestions?

Voice

Voice was a prospect member of the Legion of Super Heroes, but was rejected. She has the power to mesmerize only the dull and slow people under a lot of stress. 
However after this she and the rest of the group that got rejected with her formed the United Planets Young Heroes. It didn't work out so well.
I don't know the who the BG artist is. I've changed it just a bit.
There are only a few actual Legionnaires to draw left, that's why I'm exploring applicants and rejects.
The whole point is to have fun doing this personal mission to draw every legionnaire that ever existed. Perhaps one day in the not so distant future I'll accomplish my mission.
Until then...Long Live the Legion!
And have a good weekend too...

Turtle

Real name Bogdan Tarka, he was a Legion applicant for membership. Turtle's powers were deemed defensive only and he was deemed not suitable for membership. He along with Night Girl and Sizzle were granted Legion Reserve Status. His powers are invulnerability. I don't know who the BG artist is, otherwise I'll give him the deserved credit for it.
I believe this character dies in the comics. The End...

XS

Granddaughter of barry Allen, aka The Flash. Jenni Ognats carries on the family tradition as the 31st Century speedster, XS.
In Dead Heat, Jenni meets her cousin Bart Allen and other speedsters in the 20th century to take on Savitar. XS appeared in Infinity Crisis and in Final Crisis: Legion of 3 Worlds.
Ironically I did this one very fast and for whatever reason I always enjoy drawing speedsters.

Blue Lantern Saint Walker

When I went comic book shopping today, I saw a cover with this character in it. I thought it was so cool looking, got really inspired and here is my version. Also I like to take a little break from drawing obscure Legion of Superheroes characters from time to time. 
Sorry Legion fans, I'll keep them coming soon enough.
Saint Walker is the first recruit to the Blue Lantern Corps, as well as it;s most recognizable. 
He was vital in freeing Hal Jordan from the influence of the red Lantern ring, and one of the New Guardians after the Blackest Night.
