Green Lantern-Current Kyle by Boy-Meets-Hero Green Lantern-Current Kyle by Boy-Meets-Hero
In honor of DC Comics not killing off Kyle Rayner, I decided to draw another fan pic of him! (See issues #42 & #43 of GL Corps) He's my all-time, favorite comic book character and I realized I hadn't ever drawn him in his current costume.

I pencilled this & then colorized it in Photoshop. The most challenging part was colorizing the black part of his costume. Overall, this was a very fun pic to work on!

Oh- was this during blackest night? Yeah TuT I'm so glad he didn't die either. I think dying for the first time is when rookies officially become veterans however >.> It's kind of a weird trial by fire XD

That's a good point. Yes, I was relieved he didn't die as well.

while Kyle ain't my favorite Lantern, he's certainly a fun character to read about. Great job, especially on the little smile.

I just really love the way you guys portray Kyle. Strong and athletic looking, yet not overly muscled or disheveled, the way he's been looking in the books lately. I think he's lost a lot of the hot, fun-loving type of guy that he used to be since he left earth.

I agree. I still follow him in Green Lantern: Corps, but he's not portrayed the way he used to be. So I've been re-reading his '90s adventures and remembering how fun comics used to be. Just yesterday I bought DC Direct's version of Kyle in this very costume. It's really a nice version of him. I'm always excited when Kyle gets attention these days from DC.

Mine, too! Yay! I wish he was used more prominently these days, but at least he's still around.

Thanks! Yes, he did get killed... sorta. He was revived in the very next issue, much to my relief!

Glad they didn't kill him off! So would have irritated the fan base, I believe. Now we just have to see how he's gonna bring Guy back to the Green Side.

Very true. I was so relieved that he didn't stay dead. I'm curious to see how he saves Guy. I'm betting it will take an entire issue to do it! ;)

Hells yea! Even if it was interesting to see Guy cram Kryb's arm down her throat >_<

Green Latern is cool ^^ I'm not so much into comics but meanwhile I at least know there are several green laterns ^^* My boyfriend acts as my comic mentor and tries to teach me his wisdom *lol*
Great work, the composition is awesome!

Thank you! I really love the mythology behind the Green Lanterns. I like how they come from all parts of the Universe, giving the GL Corps all kinds of diversity. They are truly awesome heroes and are my absolute faves! That's so cool that your boyfriend bestows his comic wisdom upon you! He sounds great! :)
