I did a Hulk skin for Yellow Lantern. I decided it was too close to olive drab, so I did a brighter one (through the magic of Photoshop). YL liked the original, olive drab one (look at his section here: http://ffcenter.net/champions/).

I like 'em both. If you didn't paint over the original (NEVER a good idea), offer BOTH in a 2-pack.

That's my original idea. The first version (show in the link Outcast posted) would be more realistic, near to the tv show costume (so, few highlights and less muscles showing). The second is all "comic book" look, so more highlights and so.
I usually make "less highlighted" versions, for the reasons Kenn pointed, but since I'm a newbie I want to play with new techniques I'm learning (new toys!) and I loved Mur's tut about highlights.
Thanks for the suggestions and the kind words guys. Do you believe it's worth to release the skins (the 2 Superboys, Bats and Bucky)?

Yes.
Somewhen around 2004 the Radium Age of Comics began.   

Why radium?  Because radium is a metal and comics ages are named for metals.
Also, radium is toxic, but the people who worked with it didn't know that and thought it was great.

As a Legion fan I'm very happy the team is experimenting a "renaissance". I'm specially found of the retro tales shown in "Superman Secret Origins" and "Adventure Comics", so I wanted to play some EZScript stories with the classic team in the Rumble Room.
Tommyboy, Laughing Paradox and JK Carrier already made stunning versions of the twenty something Imra Ardeen, but I wanted a new skope and skin for the teenaged version.





The mesh is a hexed version of Ink's Marvel Girl. The skin was made over a C6 Female Basic base skin.
As always, feedback is most welcomed.

I like what you got going here.. crisp lines, nice shade of red... it's good.

I would recommend making the skirt part look more like a skirt. Add some shadow on her legs to add some depth, too.

Keep doing more Legionnaires, too!

Thanks, guys.
Good idea about the skirt, LP. I'll try it.
I want to make skins for most of the first members (the three founders, Superboy, Phantom Girl and Triplicate Girl).

The Triplicate Girl skope and skin came out nice.. I like her smile and boots.

I made a skope for "kid" Garth, the "teen" version is the old Male Cape mesh.

Stop it JJ....just stop it.  You're making me look bad!  Ha!  I can only mod, and here you are modding AND skinning.  These look great, my friend.  Your color work is really improving.  Saturn Girl and Superman are especially impressive.  I think your lightning bolts on Garth's chest could be a bit sharper, but I imagine that is MUCH easier to say than to do.  All in all, these guys are really impressive, buddy!

Thanks, Benton.
I'll try to make better looking lightnings for Mr. Ranzz. Thaks for the tip.
Don't say you can "only" mod, you're one of our best modders, period! I'm just an amateur modder and skinner.
I'm glad you liked Superboy and Saturn Girl, I'm kinda of happy with them (and I'm rarely happy with my skins and skopes).

I have no plans for the Legionnaire's current look...yet.

It's great to know Garth's face worked for you. I'm still working in Rokk's skope for the "early years". Teen version will use Tommyboy's great mesh.

I really like what you did with his face! I agree about the lightning bolts, too.. and you don't have to make each one.. just make one and copy the layer, then flip it to the other side.

Really, that face is really friggin' nice.

And yeah, I love the current look of the Legion.. they even got Tyroc back on the team and he looks cool!

Check out various fonts. You could find some lightning bolts that way.

I like, but I think she would look better on a teen body.

I envy that you have been able to skin so well in such a short time.  I can't quite get the hang of it.

Thanks guys, you're very kind.
Xenolith,Triplicate Girl's body is Ink's Female Teen Versatile. I just edited the hair and skoped the cape and belt.
Now, back to Cosmic Boy...
