As many of you know, I've set to work on massive art project where I'll be redesigning the DC Universe based on my head canon.

During the planning of this project, I drafted rosters for eight teams. I incorporated your opinions in regards to who should be on the Justice League and also used your rankings to determine the order in which I would work on the teams.

Typically I remain very tight-lipped in regards to the line-ups of the teams I work on, but I've decided to try something a little different this time around. Below you will find all eight of the hero teams I will be redesigning, as well as the rosters for each. They are ordered according to the order in which you all voted for them to appear in. I'd love to hear your opinions on them.

1. JUSTICE LEAGUE
  • Superman (Kal-El)
  • Batman (Bruce Wayne)
  • Wonder Woman (Diana of Themyscira)
  • The Flash (Barry Allen)
  • Green Lantern (John Stewart)
  • Black Canary (Dinah Lance)
  • Zatanna Zatara
2. TEEN TITANS
  • Starfire (Koriand'r of Tamaran)
  • Nightwing (Dick Grayson)
  • Troia (Donna Troy)
  • Jesse Quick (Jessica Chambers)
  • Green Lantern (Kyle Rayner)
  • Arsenal (Roy Harper)
  • Raven (Rachel Roth)
3. JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA
  • Power Girl (Karen Starr)
  • Huntress (Helena Wayne-Bertinelli)
  • Hawkgirl (Kendra Munoz-Saunders)
  • The Flash (Jay Garrick)
  • Green Lantern (Alan Scott)
  • Wildcat (Ted Grant)
  • Captain Marvel (Billy Batson)
4. YOUNG JUSTICE
  • Robin (Tim Drake)
  • Superboy (Kon-El)
  • Wonder Girl (Cassandra Sandsmark)
  • Kid Flash (Bart Allen)
  • Miss Martian (M'gann M'orzz)
  • Ravager (Rose Wilson)
  • Dr. Fate (Khalid Ben-Hassin)
5. BIRDS OF PREY
  • Batgirl (Barbara Gordon)
  • Spoiler (Stephanie Brown)
  • Black Bat (Cassandra Cain)
  • Bluebird (Harper Row)
6. JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL
  • Captain Atom (Nathaniel Adam)
  • Blue Beetle (Ted Kord)
  • Big Barda (Barda Free)
  • Booster Gold (Michael Jon Carter)
  • Green Lantern (Guy Gardner)
  • Fire (Beatriz da Costa)
  • Ice (Tora Olafsdotter)
7. THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES
  • Cosmic Boy (Rokk Krinn)
  • Ultra Boy (Roh Nah)
  • Invisible Kid (Lyle Norg)
  • Shrinking Violet (Salu Digby)
  • Lightning Lad (Garth Ranzz)
  • Triplicate Girl (Luornu Durgo)
  • Saturn Girl (Imra Ardeen)
  • Brainiac 5 (Querl Dox)
  • Phantom Girl (Tinya Wazzo)
8. THE OUTSIDERS
  • Martian Manhunter (J'onn J'onzz)
  • Batwoman (Kate Kane)
  • Supergirl (Kara Zor-El)
  • Black Lightning (Jefferson Pierce)
  • Aquaman (Arthur Curry)
  • Green Arrow (Oliver Queen)
  • Katana (Tatsu Yamashiro)

Don't see your favourite characters? No problem! Aside from the Justice League, I'm not 100% married to each of these rosters and am flexible in terms of who makes the final cut. If you'd like to suggest a character, please include their name and which team you'd like to see them on. In addition to this, you'll have to provide me with who they would replace on that particular team. Since I've decided that each team will exceed no more than the number I've already given them, I will not be adding to their ranks. This is why it's important to suggest who you'd want them to replace. Most importantly, you'll need to convince me of why they deserve to be on that team. I may be flexible, but I also need a logical and compelling case for their placement. Just providing a name and a team will not be good enough. If you love a character and want to see them drawn, then you should be capable of making a case for them.

If you don't have any suggestions, I'd love to hear from you anyway and what your thoughts may be on these teams (and perhaps even the order in which you all voted them into). Positive thoughts and opinions welcome. Anyone being a Negative Nancy will find their comments hidden.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you all! :)

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers by Femmes-Fatales
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
If you grew up in the '90s, no one was cooler than the Power Rangers. Not even Batman.

Set in the fictional small town of Angel Grove, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers followed the adventures of five average teenagers who could transform into rainbow-hued champions of justice. Using the powers of ancient dinosaurs, these superheroes battled it out against the boisterous Rita Repulsa and her envoy of evil space aliens.

Chosen for their pluck and attitude, the original Rangers consisted of five core members. The team's level-headed leader was martial artist Jason Lee Scott, who summoned the power of the Tyrannosaurus Rex to transform into the Red Ranger. Billy Cranston, the brains of the team, became the Blue Ranger by using the power of the Triceratops. Gymnast and total valley girl Kimberly Hart used the power of the Pterodactyl to morph into the Pink Ranger. Zack Taylor was the hip-hop dancing prankster of the group, who called on the power of the Mastodon to become the Black Ranger. The final member of this team was environmentalist Trini Kwan, who used her kung fu prowess to kick butt as the Yellow Ranger. Her power came from the Sabretooth Tiger. The team would eventually grow to include a sixth member, the Green Ranger. Originally brainwashed into being a villain, Tommy Oliver was granted powers from the Dragon and later the White Tiger. Tommy would eventually become the group's leader following the departure of Jason, Trini and Zack in the show's second season.

For those in the know, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was produced using footage from the iconic Japanese franchise known as Super Sentai. The first couple of seasons were very loosely based off of Zyuranger, taking the battle footage and villains then setting it to an all new narrative. At the time, Power Rangers was a groundbreaking series. Though it drew the ire of parents for its "violence" and is generally derisively looked upon for being campy, it presented young children with positive role models and a more diversified glimpse at superheroes. After the largely white-washed children's programming of the '80s, the Power Rangers were a breath of fresh air with its more diversified cast of heroes. Controversy about the Yellow and Black designations aside, it paved the way for other television series to include characters of colour as part of the main cast. On the superhero front, it was also ahead of most other programming. Batman featured a predominantly white cast and as did Spider-Man, though X-Men blazed a trail all its own with a cast that included a fierce African-American weather-wielding diva and a spunky Asian-American teen sidekick. Fun fact: Super Sentai was the primary inspiration behind Sailor Moon.

Speaking personally, the Power Rangers were a staple of my childhood. Though I never seemed to catch the seasons in their entirety, I collected the toys and plucked myself down at the television every weekend to catch their adventures. Now that I'm older, I've made a conscious effort to re-watch all of the series within the franchise from the beginning on Netflix. Since I started with the OG Rangers, I ended up drawing a piece of that original line-up. It was a challenging task, but I was glad to see some turnout amongst you guys in support of these drawings. Trini's piece in particular racked up quite a few favourites on here, while also pulling out a few retweets on Twitter and likes on Instagram. When it came time to put them all together, I decided to whip up the Green Ranger. These days I like to include a little something extra for ensemble pieces, since I consider it an added incentive for favouriting the piece even if you'd favourited the individual ones.

All that said, I'm interested to know who your favourites were of the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and why. Beyond that, I'd love to hear your thoughts on this piece.

For those interested, I should mention that I've reviewed Mighty Morphin Power Rangers on my blog and the links to those reviews can be found below.

Sailor Moon - Usagi's Style File Part 2 by Femmes-Fatales
Sailor Moon - Usagi's Style File Part 2
Usagi Tsukino's Style File, Part 2

I'm a big fashion guy and growing up I always loved to see what my favourite superheroes wore when they weren't saving the day. While most cartoons often featured their characters wearing one look at all times, the original Sailor Moon anime was much different. It was rather famous for giving its characters rather substantial wardrobes, which often changed depending on the season. Naturally, as I grew older I became obsessed with the clothes the girls wore on the show. To this day, I still get very nostalgic when I see the fashion worn on the show. That's ultimately what brought this piece on.

As the main character of the series, Usagi had a monster wardrobe. She had clothes for just about every occasion (and then some). Her style was typified by its playfulness and girlishness. She frequently wore short skirts and light jackets, with her signature colour pink becoming a recurring theme in her fashion.

This piece specifically chronicles her most worn casual clothing, as well as a couple less common looks thrown in just for fun. Keep on reading for a full breakdown of the looks below!

Look #1: First worn in episode 11 of the classic series, this springtime ensemble featured a light pink sweater and khaki shorts. She completed the look with a violet denim jacket and pink sneakers.

Look #2: As one of her most worn outfits in the series, Usagi wore this layered look during the spring. It featured a light green button-up shirt, pale pink maxi skirt and a tiffany blue jacket. More often than not, she accessorized this outfit with pink bows in her hair.

Look #3: This popular summertime outfit was worn mostly during the earlier seasons and was one of Usagi's simplest looks. It consisted of a pink sleeveless turtleneck shirt and turquoise skirt. She wore cerise hued flats to complete the look.

Look #4: This was another one of her most worn outfits. A favourite during the earlier seasons, this overall celeste blue dress featured a bow in the back and was worn over a sleeveless hooded white shirt. She accessorized it with white tennis shoes and a golden crescent moon necklace.

Look #5: A popular fall ensemble for Usagi, this layered outfit consisted of a green sweater worn over a white blouse and ruby pleated skirt. She wore purple two-tone shoes and a lavender jacket to complete the look.

Look #6: First worn in Sailor Moon R: The Movie, this springtime ensemble consists of a white hooded sweater with ruffles down the centre and a teal and dark iris striped skirt. This outfit would later make its way officially into the series during SuperS, where it became a semi-frequently worn look for Usagi.

Look #7: Aside from the second outfit featured in this piece, this is one of Usagi's most worn looks ever. Worn most often during the spring, this (fairly dated) orange shorted overall look was paired with a pale yellow shirt and brown flats. There were other variants of this look, one of which featured blue shorts and a white shirt.

Look #8: Introduced during S, this spring look is probably one of Usagi's more timeless outfits. It consists of a pink shirt with a near sweetheart neckline, a duke blue mini-skirt, a white bolero-length hoodie and tan boots.

Look #9: As the series progressed into S, the characters began sporting new looks for the spring and summer. While Usagi was originally given a pink pleated mini-dress, it was soon outworn by this Chinese-inspired summertime look. It featured a teal shirt with pink bows and a pair of white shorts. She wore them with platform sandals.

Look #10: The last outfit here was a one-off from Stars. I really liked the outfits worn by all five of the main gals, so I decided to do Usagi's. It's a simple look, consisting of an orange and blue t-shirt with a USA logo (which conveniently alludes to her name) and light jean shorts.

For all those who have checked out this piece and read through this description, I really appreciate it! If you'd like to see the other Sailor Guardians done, please write me a thoughtful comment (re: more than one sentence) below letting me know what you specifically like about this piece. I'd love to know what looks are your favourite and why.

Thanks!

Enjoy! :)

Sailor Moon - Usagi's Style File Part 1 by Femmes-Fatales
Sailor Moon - Usagi's Style File Part 1
Usagi Tsukino's Style File, Part 1

When I joined DeviantArt over six years ago, what earned me my first watchers was a digital compilation of outfits worn by the Sailor Guardians in the original anime. This series, then known as the Sailor Moon Style Guide, utilized the character models created for the show. I coloured them and collected them into digital pages.

Now that I'm much confident in my own abilities as an artist, I decided to go ahead and draw a sort of redo of Usagi's pages from the original guide. Rather than use my own style, which is straight up western, I opted for challenging myself by trying to mimic the anime aesthetic of the original series. It was difficult, especially since Usagi's eyes are so key in making her recognizable. While I did mostly stick to the original anime, I did actually style the hair after her appearance in Crystal.

For this first part, I went with the very basics of Usagi's wardrobe. The first look is her spring/fall school uniform and the second is her standard Sailor Fuku (with the manga brooch). The third is her Princess garb, which is largely styled after her manga appearance. The fourth look is her iconic pink swimsuit with yellow bows sewn on to cover its holes. The fifth is her pink formalwear, which she wore on a couple of occasions. It features a (presumably) zippered front, lace trim and magenta bow. The last outfit in this piece is her summer kimono. She wears this a few times within the series. It's a light pink robe punctuated with teal flowers and a green obi.

Admittedly, I wasn't as attentive as I sully am when it comes to details. The school uniform is missing a second line on the cuff and the Princess dress doesn't have its bow. Still, I'm rather pleased with how her Sailor Fuku came out. Of course, the real bulk of my blood, sweat and tears is actually in part 2 of this multi-part "guide."

As always, I love hearing from you all, so feel free to drop by a thoughtful comment below letting me know what you think of this piece.

Femmes Fatales - Jennette by Femmes-Fatales
Femmes Fatales - Jennette

Femmes Fatales, Part 3.

FULL NAME:
Jennette Topaze

DATE OF BIRTH: June 4

AGE: 26

ZODIAC SIGN: Gemini

THEME COLOUR: Blue

LIKES: Classic literature, ballet and science

DISLIKES: Partying, athletes and her mother

ABILITIES: A skilled scientist and trained medic; fluent in English, French and Japanese

FAMILY: Cécile Topaze (mother), Kenta Otaka (father, deceased), Dominique Topaze (sister, deceased), Toshiro Otaka (uncle, deceased), Hideo Otaka (cousin), Reika Otaka (cousin)

RELATIONSHIPS: Gavin Hill (best friend), Melissa Carter (friend), Tai Childs (friend), Nichelle Williams (friend)

PROFESSION: Medical Consultant, Femmes Fatales Investigations

PERSONALITY: At first glance, Jennette appears standoffish and distant. However, she is actually deeply sensitive and extremely thoughtful. She cares for her friends, but doesn’t often show it. Much of this is due to the tragedies and losses from her past.

HISTORY: Once an aspiring ballerina, Jennette left dance to pursue medicine after the deaths of her father and twin sister Dominique. This gravely disappointed her mother, who had desperately hoped she’d follow in her footsteps as an acclaimed dancer. 

As Jennette’s relationship with her mother worsened, she was forced to find a way to support herself without her mother’s financial aid.

It was then that she took a job as a part-time consultant for Femmes Fatales Investigations. Though her expertise as a scientist was limited, she found herself as a much-needed medic for the group.



--------------------------------------------------------------


As with the other characters in this series, Jennette Topaze is one of the primary protagonists from my as-yet-unpublished novel "Femmes Fatales." She is a pensive young woman whose intelligence and gentility balance out the more aggressive and impulsive members of the Femmes Fatales.

Of my main characters, Jennette has received a fairly warm reception. Her pieces have tended to do well, no doubt due to people's ability to relate to her personality. In fact, when I held a contest where I asked entrants to draw pictures of my characters, Jennette was drawn more than once. Of course, I do think her physical appearance plays into that as well. She's visually more feminine than the others and her Asiatic features mark her as being more exotic.

In my last few drawings of her, I've mostly styled her with her hair down while wearing a headband for an accessory. This time around I wanted to try putting her hair back into a braid. This inadvertently made her look a little like Katniss Everdeen. I assure you that was unintentional, since the characters have absolutely nothing in common. Beyond the hair, I also changed the uniform slightly. I gave her more streamlined boots, since the ones I had her in before were a little clunky. The ribbing of the shirt is also changed, as they were for Andie and Nichelle's pieces in this series.

As always, I appreciate comments and feedback. Feel free to drop a comment below.

Enjoy! :) (Smile)

Admittedly, I haven't really had the time to keep up with video gaming. It's an expensive hobby that I've had to give up for the time being. I've been much too busy with my new job and with submitting all of the recent DC Comics redesigns. :)
