Green Lantern Redesign by 13wishes Green Lantern Redesign by 13wishes
Green Lantern Redesigns I did awhile back, which was posted on the amazing Project:Rooftop (check out the site if you haven't!). Enjoy y'all!:)


The whole idea here is about the ring creating the costume, just thought that perhaps the basic outfit (left) should be black with a sort of “galactic camo” (not unlike Starman’s), and the ring builds the overlapping outfit on top of it, depending on the circumstance. We have the standard, more militaristic uniform (middle)- very armor-like with emphasis on the ring hand, while the shoulder on the other side holds a sort of rank, and also a ceremonial outfit (right), for funerals and celebrations on Oa.

The first and third remind me of Luke Skywalker from Episode VI. And Green Lanterns and Jedi are both enforcers of peace throughout their galaxy.

I always thought if they can change their outfit at will then why don't they change for different occasions. Brilliant concept with the ceremonial outfit. People are always dying in the comics.

Nice design. I really like it. I looks a lot like the tech armor that sentinels in Mass Effect series use. I really like this more space-tech Green Lantern.

i don't know if you noticed, but the grad on the shoulder of the second redesign seems really like the indigo tribe symbol XD

anyway, really a good work^^
and, if you read the comics, probably the indigo tribe will have a great role for the corps, so, who knos, maybe a symbol like that could be really used by the green lanterns lol

Great redesigns ^^ Perhaps Hal could done a cool outfit like these if his powers changed in the future? The Corps members seem to all go for similar designs- I assume cause it's vaguely uniform like T.T Ah- bad when DC had fun with outfits. I like the last two the most. Mostly due to having extra bits on the costume. The first is cool, but comparatively plain to the rest.

Haha, the first is his depowered form (of sorts), when he isnt using his ring to form an armor or uniform :) haha, yea, they havent really explored outfits in a while... its always kinda the same :/ lol thanks!!!

Ah- that makes sense :) They don't change Hal, Johns or Guy's costumes at all. I think Hal has had his original standard outfit, Parallax, Spectre (if that counts at all), Yellow lantern, and his current one which is basically a vamped up version of his first one. That's me being generous. That's 50 years of costumes. John had his first, Darkstar, Indigo Tribe, and his current one, and Guy has his original one, Warrior, and Red Lantern. Him and John have been around about 40 years. Kyle in 20 years has had the black outfit, Ion1, the biker one, Ion2, Parallax, Blue lantern, and his current outfit. I'm missing out alternative universe version of him and one of story line ones. I know Kyle has an excuse being an artist, but his costumes are always drastic changes (except the blue lantern one O.o ). The rest vary on similar things. I kinda wish that the designers would experiment on their costumes more :<

Mostly on outfit for me, and how they pushed him to a lesser role now since Hal came back :\ Kyle's my fav lol

You been following it? They're pushing him up the roles again finally :) I agree with the outfit. If it was his first outfit I'd be fine, but Kyle has has some awesome costumes. His current one and the Blue one were kind of a let down. He's so conformist right now :/ I hope they update it soon to something more unique.

Kyle's my fav too :3 Lol- not that wasn't completely obvious by my gallery right now XD Reading back on the back issues I've missed in the last 6 years has rekindled an old passion for his storyline :3 I totally dig the whole artist getting a power ring thing ^^ They're the only OTP that can't be destroyed by Kyle's kiss of death ;)

You know, this redesign is incredibly badass - I wish this would be the real costume!

First of all, I like your concept of how there is a basic on which the ring builds something overlapping on top of it depending on the circumstance - this sounds very reasonable. After all, the ring is based on imagination, and since the costumes are energy constructs as well, I think it would just waste energy if you're always armored, even if there's no fight. A ceremonial outfit sounds cool as well - it emphasizes the idea of the Corps as an organization, kinda like a military or police force. Space Cops, yay!

Your lines and colours are just fantastic - you put so much effort in the face (although it's not that important for redesigning a costume), it looks cool and everything's so shiny, especially the hair.
One little question though: Is this supposed to be a named Green Lantern or just a model? Because I don't want to just assume it's a certain person although there is an undeniable resemblance. ;)

A little criticism I want to get out of the way immediately: Though I love the shiny bright glow of the lantern symbol,Ii'm not sure if I approve of this redesign of the symbol in itself. Though you didn't change it that much, it's still very eye-catching - I wonder how it would look like if you stayed closer to the original GL symbol?

I like how you coloured the basic outfit - it looks like an energy construct or something should look like, like it's glowing yet just not glowing, I love the tint of green and that "universe-y feel" .
The armor looks cool as well, so glassy and shiny. It looks fragile and solid at the same time. The emphasized armor on the ring hand and the rank on the shoulder pad are great ideas - although I might have given the area around the neck and the shoulders and overall sleeker look to go better with the rest of the costume.
The ceremonial outfit is perfect. I like how it is halfway transparent, how the green is so floating, the little symbols on the shoulders, the emblem in the middle (I already talked about that), the little pads on the legs - it's just perfect.

Overall a good, badass work with a nice idea and concept, though some changes may be needed. :)
