TRDL 2011 Series No. 36 - Star Sapphire

As much as I don’t at all mind the concept of drawing Blake Lively and her 33 foot long legs in a Star Sapphire kit, I went old school. Here’s an early vintage, having bested original Terran Lantern Alan Scott. I had to do quite a bit of research on this one, from trying to glean how this particular Star Sapphire looked (and I made a few mods) to what Scott’s ring looked like, with it’s little lantern motif. Good stuff! I have to say though, I was thrown when I was doing some color checks on Scott’s outlandish threads, which I obviously toned down from the four-color days, and stumbled upon a commission sketch from Kevin Nowlan that pretty much was the same idea. Anyway, I didn’t see it at the time I drew it, so. SO!
