Rock Band GL night by Arkillian Rock Band GL night by Arkillian
A doodle I was working on of Kyle and Guy fooling around got developed a little too far into a picture so I thought I'd finish it. Not sure how this scene came about- I assume that either Kyle or Guy or both conned John and Hal to join them in a Rock band night. Fun tiems ^^ I assume that hard core Hal is carrying most of the points scoring here since he's got game face on, and John has a long note or something letting him join in with the singing XD Goodness knows what the singing sounds like XD

My first time drawing Guy Gardner and John Stewart for this. I've drawn Hal a couple of times, but I realise that Guy and John never came up before now D: I'm a little iffy about how Guy turned out, but I like Kyle and Hal here :) I THINK I got John right.... Did I? O.o

So yeah- any ideas what they're all rocking down to? Something epic :D

No critique please- This was just the result of an over developed doodle :3

I get a chuckle from this picture. It reminds me of a startling realization I had while reading War of The Green Lanterns.

During this story the four earth men have to once again to save the universe from another extremist power hungry villain. However in order to do so they must use the rings from the different emotion spectrums. While witnessing their new multicoloured transformation I said out loud " Good Lord! They are a boy band. Hal is the lead singer. While Kyle is the sensitive pretty one. Guy is the bad boy and John is the serious one"

But to answer your first question I think John came out alright. Now as to what music these guys would rock out to? I would say the classics. And by classics I mean music that established Rock. Which was between the early 70's and late 80's. To name a few of these bands would be K.I.S.S, Queens of the Stone Age, AC/DC, Guns and Roses, The Ramones, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Black Sabbath.

Oh- what you see there isn't boyband, but the four temperaments- Sanguine (Hal), Choleric (Guy), Phlegmatic (John), and meloncholic (Kyle) :) IT's actually a thing, and I'm glad they did it cause it separates their personalities alot more (I've actually started some pictures inspired by this <3 ). I was worried they'd blend. I don't know where Simon fits in yet though- he needs more air time for me to decide if he's the fifth temperament or not

Yeah- I'd bet they'd rock out to that too- it's canon that Kyle is an ACDC fan, and the music is from the rest of their era sorta (I think? It's weird with them being created so long ago- comic characters age weirdly)

Yeah though, I see where the boy band thing comes into it though :) I wanted to have Hal singing, but the picture started off with just Kyle and Guy hanging out which is why they take up so much picture, and I went "I want Hal and John in there too" and fitted them in the best I could with the room I had left on the page XD Alot of successful rock bands do seem to have that make up though- I know KISS definitely do :) HAH! Now I want to cosplay them in KISS makeup and clothes XD

WORD

Those GLs have been running their asses full time for the what... 8 years? What happened to small time disasters in their home town? O.o Everything is so obnoxiously big time for them now days. IT was really awesome to draw them just chilling out and having fun- there's nothing better than singing off your problems even if you sound like crap XD

INORITE? After reading some of the current GLs, those guys get NO rest. And when they do, someone they love dies/ there's a horrible tragedy/ a powerful GL goes crazy and Parralaxes out on their asses. Sometimes the the whole CORPS do that. I mean... wow. Maybe I'm missing some issues where life doesn't hurt like hell cause I'm reading TPs, but... XD *hugs them all*

I was grinning the whole time I drew this though ^^ It's been too long since I drew something really fun ^^

Oh, yes, I know! I think the greatest villains that the GLs face are actually the writers. LOl They won't give our guys a rest. And whenever I get upset about what a character that I love is being put through, I almost always draw a picture of them being happy or having fun. That helps me deal. That's pretty much why there have been a lot of Saint Walker pics from me lately. It's like the writer, Bedard, has it in for Walker and it messes with my emotions! Speaking of, I just did a pic the other day of him with Stephanie Brown laughing together that I forgot to post here... but anyway, from what I read in the previews and interviews with writers, Kyle's life is about to be turned upside down again. Poor baby.:(

There was a rumor I heard that they were bringing Alexandra back from the dead. I REALLY hope not. I liked Alexandra when Kyle first dated her, and I liked Oblivion Alexandra, but Kyle has moved on. I'm hoping for a Kyle x Jade rekindle to be honest. I've been reading up about Soranik, and I really don't think there was a relationship basis there at all. Kyle was feeling lonely, and Soranik thought it was a good idea at the time. Then second time around Kyle realises that he still has feelings for Jade.I donno- That's telling me that Jade will be coming back into his life, even if she's still having an affair with that stupid Wall street guy for some of it. Donno. If the drama coming up for him is bad then well... how much worse can it get? DC has killed off everyone Kyle loves. Are they going to take his ring off him? That's the next step, right? :/

I've only been following the Saint Walker stuff through New Guardians so I've missed anything not with that. His home world being taken over is pretty horrible. He holds the weight of his whole race on his shoulders :( I like SW- He's always been a gentle lantern. It's always really sad when back stuff happens to nice characters :( He's a well designed character though :)

Me with drawing happy pictures... I don't usually do it when the character is having it rough. I'm personally feeling very down right now, so I needed a pick me up. My mother isn't very well right now, and I'm over working myself. I need a few early nights. I'm starting to think down on myself T.T I hate it when I get like this, but that's why I drew happy GLs. Besides, Kyle and Guy looked like they were having so much fun in the sketch- I wanted to give it more context and feel good :3

I haven't heard about the rumor of Alex being resurrected actually. I don't know how they would bring Jade back unless they gave her a completely different origin story. Alan Scott is in his twenties and on earth 2, so, Jade and Obsidian don't exist at this point.:( But they could just retcon her in somehow and give her different parents (don't know how they'd make that work though..). The sad thing is Sora loves Kyle more than Kyle loves her. And I just love Sora, she really deserves better than that...

The drama for Kyle that I'm referring to is what is hinted at in the preview that says he will return to Earth to find a tragedy. Also, there are plans to make Kyle the torchbearer for all of the emotional spectrum. There was also a vision of Kyle becoming a Red Lantern in Green Lantern. That could just be him becoming experienced with wielding all of the rings but there has been speculation among fans that someone will get fridged and Kyle looses it for awhile and becomes a RL. But I don't know about that. I am worried about this "tragedy". I really can't guess what that would be.

Drawing happy pictures really does help to lift one's mood. I hope things get better with your mother though. But at least it seems that you are finding a way to smile through your art.:)

Oh man- how Avatar of Kyle XD I guess that makes sense though. Kyle has always dealt with shinny new powers alot easier than others so it seems to be his thing. They hinted in the last New Guardians that they had bigger plans for him and his team than what they were doing. I'm not certain how Kyle could have more tragedy on Earth unless he comes back to his Father or Radu or Terry being dead or something cause he has no other family we know of left. I REALLY hope that if it is a tragedy that it isn't a death one. Seriously DC- there's been enough death. Don't cheapen it further.

they haven't erased Alan. They killed him, and Obsidian and Jade theoretically still exist. OR that's how I've read it. I haven't read about Alan's death yet, but Wikipedia says that he died. I've seen nothing to suggest that he never existed. The gay alan is actually a different Alan. That's why they specifically put him Earth 2. IT's a 'reboot' for his character. It's not erasing his past (although what has happened to Starheart? Is it extinct? O.o ) I doubt they'd out Jade. She was popular as superhero chicks went.

I feel sorry for Soranik too. She was closed hearted before Kyle cause she didn't want her heart broken, and it happens anyway, and they weren't even together that long. What I'm hoping is that she'll take the love she felt for Kyle and remember that it was worth having, and open her heart to someone better. I like her- don't get me wrong. She's a strong character. I just don't see gelling basis with them. I guess knowing that they're doomed before I start makes me see flaws too. I do want to see her with someone though. I can't say who though cause she's very guarded around everyone but Kyle. Perhaps this is character development for her? :( I know the feels of loving someone more than they love you. Took me a year to get over that.

She's getting better. She's going to be on strong antibiotics for another week, but she caught the 10 day virus going around that I got a few weeks ago. It's not fun, but she can't take anything for it cause of the infection. She just needs to take it easy. I have other stuff on my mind besides that though, but that's all boring shit. Drawing helps. I'm also starting to do a little writing also. IT's hard, but I'm hoping it'll become easier soon :)

They haven't erased Alan? I hope so. Everyone that I've been chatting with assumed that the new Alan is going to be the only one and that Jade and Obsidian were erased now. I read in some article, I think, but can't remember where, that the reason Didio decided that Alan should be gay was that he thought that it was a shame that they had gotten rid of a gay character. Though I don't follow how making Alan gay makes up for erasing Obsidian. But whatever. I *hope* that they keep most of Kyle's history intact and that Jade still exists. We can always hope, I guess...

Well, the comic store I buy my comic from is a GL fan, and he said that Earth 2 Alan is a different person so I assume that means he's an alternative Alan, and not the same one. IT makes WAY more sense than Alan arbitrarily deciding after all these years of being married with kids that he was suddenly gay. That and Alan on Earth 1 is old, and Earth 2 Alan is young. It's just a reboot with a 'What if he was gay' to me.

It seems to me that even though people have told me that DC have hacked at Kyle's past that most of it is still there. It's hard to know what. I'm sure though that they weren't teasing when Jade came back as a white lantern though. The more I think about it, the more it makes sense. I still dont' have a clue what tragedy could possibly occur on Earth. You sure it wasn't just a major event? Tragedy usually implies murder or a dramatic change in status of someone O.o

I don't want to go into detail cause it'd ruin the picture for you, but he doesn't feel like the Guy Gardner in my mind. Kyle is perfect (cause I've drawn him enough <3 ), Hal is very close (specially with this expression), John could be a little closer by making him more African American looking, but Guy I feel I've missed the ball with >.> I'll have to draw him again to figure out what I don't like about him. It may just be the anatomy issues. My perfect Guy Gardner likely will end up in the ball park of Kevin Maguire's Guy. Over emoting cocky pride with a hint of smarmy ^^ That's how I like him ^^ Well... not with the bowel cut... I never liked the bowel cut >.>Kevin's Maguire's Guy is perfect in every other way besides that though, but that's not his fault. It's DC's for designing him with darn awful hair XD His more cropped look he has now is bad ass. I love it :3

I've done a few pictures since this one. I haven't posted them on DA cause they're slash requests, but I just needed to draw him a few more times to get him right. I'm nearly there. Maguire's Guy is awesome cause of the expression. That much I can do- the rest I just needed a few goes at, that's all. First tries are always the worst XD
