This past week was Miss Martian week at Spitballin' courtesy of Selena Goulding. The only things I really know about her I learned from the Young Justice cartoon which didn't really amount to much: she has an annoying catchphrase (Helllooo Megan!) and she has the hots for Superboy. Also, she has powers similar to the Martian Manhunter.
I wanted to try something different with this: instead of using the inks to pull everything together, I wanted the colour to define the shapes. To me it looks very "construction paper cutouts" but I think it still works. Getting more comfortable with Photoshop, so that's a plus.
Once again, I'm avoiding a plug to the original source so I can "borrow" from it at least once more, although de la Costa's blog has a pretty obvious redirect. I wasn't aware that they had made M'gann smitten with Superboy on Young Justice. I've already suffered through Wonder Woman's unrequited feelings toward Superman, Superboy being Cassie Sandsmark's cherry-poppin' daddy, and J'Onn as a punching bag for D-list Supes villains, so why not continue the indignities? Personally, I think a Robin romance would be more appropriate, since Dick Grayson has about as many qualms regarding inter-species mating as Captain Kirk, and it would add a twist to the Batman-Martian Manhunter bromance. Regardless, the show inspired this Nagelesque piece, and while I don't entirely approve of sexualizing a sweetheart like M'gann, it does show her in a different light.
