2005 JLA Portfolio Sample by Philip Tan

Click To Enlarge

Before Phillip Tan became known for well promoted but usually quite brief runs on various mid-level series and minis, he was schlepping a portfolio around like most aspiring artists. This was one of the pieces he produced to get work, and guys like Todd McFarlane and Dan Didio seem to have dug it. It kind of weirds me out to see the Flash so far at the forefront that his head's barely in the shot (yet he's still looking at me with those creeper peepers,) but it actually makes a lot more sense than his usual positioning. The prominent Wonder Woman is also nice. For obnoxious-mode Plastic Man, Tan's got a nice touch. Not really digging that J'Onn-J'Onn, though.

Check out the artist's deviantART gallery for more.
