With your permission I'd like to use this design for my own Green Lantern character in an online roleplaying session that I'm doing. You'd get full credit for it, I swear, and the material won't be published or uploaded anywhere. (Altho' if the character does well enough to warrant fanart I'd like your permission to be able to have that drawn as well.)
good stuff man.I was thinking along the same lines as you were. modernizing the long-loved, long-lived superheroes by making them wear OUR styles of clothing rather than spandex and pleather. lmao. my green lantern is goth. his costume is basically tripps, fishnet shirt and trench coat... and the GL mask ofcourse. that and the ring are about the only thing I left alone in the drawing.
Very interesting image, with lots of interesting ideas. For example, he doesn't need a 'mask' as such, since the ring can just make sure that no one can see his eyes (but he can see just fine). Of course, the inner conflict between willpower and apathy would make for some very interesting discussions.
