This I'll Protect... by ConnerKonEl
This I'll Protect...
    The Green Lantern Corp is one of the most interesting groups in the DC Universe. While Hal Jordan is the flagship character of Sector 2614 (Earth), John Stewart, a former Marine and architect is by far my favorite of the bunch. John Stewart became a fan favorite by his presence in the Justice League/ Justice League Unlimited animated series. Recently at the San Diego Comic-Con, it was announced that the next attempt for a Green Lantern movie would feature the entire corps vs the failed attempt of an Earth based Hal Jordan played by Ryan Reynolds a few years ago. While Chris Pine is a lead runner for the role of Hal and Tyrese Gibson is a rumored front-runner for the role of John Stewart, I'd like to throw up my own recommendation: Terry Crews! 

    This image was drawn using Terry Crews as reference. Based on his performance in The Expendables and various other movies over the years, I feel that he would be an astonishing choice for the role. Stewart is a very serious type of character with a rather subtle sense of humor and I can see Crews delivering on this personality type all too well. After seeing this image, can any of you agree/ disagree?

Okay so I know this isn't really art but lets see if it gets any traction here. I've long thought that Terry Crews would be an outstanding choice for the role Green Lantern John Stewart. Granted, most of my knowledge of him comes from the Justice League animated series but with the exception of "Teen Titans Go", the DC animated universe has always been very true to the characters. So pass this on, lets see if we can get him noticed for the role!

This project came about actually as a school assignment and I have to say that I am surprised with how much I was able to get done in just a period of two days. I've been wanting to create a more muscular female hero and aside from She-Hulk or Wonder Woman, Hawkgirl seemed liked the best option given her warrior background (at least in the Justice League show). I can definitley say though that I'm very happy with a lot of this as it is. Sure there are a few things I could do but for what it is, it works. I'll put the extra time in on the next one...
So its time to deliver the bad news first... I didn't get selected for the semi-finals in the Odyssey Card Contest. It kinda sucks but I'm not at all bothered. These guys were all significantly more polished in their work so they definitley deserved it more! Also, I made colossal improvements in my own methods so I'll definitely be trying again all too soon! 

Thanks to some tutorials by SakimiChan I think I'll be kicking out a new one before the end of the month for sure!
Four days until the announcement of the winners for the card contest I entered Bastrada into... 25 chances to win out of 200+ entries last I checked. I have a good amount of confidence I can score at least one of those slots but at the same time I'm seriously sweating bullets here! Having never gotten a DD it'll be a hell of a surprise if I do become a semi-finalist!

As of right now I'm 29 years old, I have a beautiful girlfriend and am something of a contradiction to stereotypes. I'm very much into anime and comic books so you could definitely classify me a geek yet I also love hitting the gym and am very into bodybuilding. Recently (October 2013) I competed in my first two competitions. I dieted for nearly 3 1/2 months to get ready for them and in all that time I lost almost 60 pounds. Sadly, along with all that excess body fat went some muscle. That loss hurt me a bit and I ended up in last place for both competitions but thats not a problem. Now that I've lost that weight I don't have to worry about so much dieting for next year's competitions! In the meanwhile I'm very happy drawing and writing my own creations.

So what are you actually asking me to draw? Obviously you want something with Sailor Mercury and maybe this OC but I don't fully understand beyond that. Do you want me to re-draw the linked image?

You take requests?
ConnerKonEl Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
You would actually only be my second request on DA so yeah, I'll try and squeeze you in. Just understand that I have a very full plate with school, the gym and work. With all the priorities taking up my time I can't promise that I'll finish your request anytime soon. But I will try. 

So what is your request?

Just so you know now, my skills are obviously in people and anatomy. I can do animals somewhat but cars and other technical items are out of my reach. I'm too much a perfectionist and they're far to precise.
