2010 The Martian Manhunter by Ryan Jenkyns

Can I just say, damn? Like, hot damn. Photorealistic CGI J'Onn J'Onzz plus standard suit = success.

Following on from my last deviation, I've been playing with more Photoshop. I've been working on a lifecast of myself and thinking what masks I could sculpt in future, and I've always noticed that of all the Justice League characters, the one member who is less commonly portrayed is always the Martian Manhunter. So this is a little test to see what I would look like as the big green fella.

Of course, I tried to stay true to the comics and animated series, while grounding it in reality. And I happened to have a halfway decent photo of myself in a suit, so thought I'd go with that. I also liked the dramatic lighting of the original photo, so tried to replicate that when putting this together.

Pretty cool, but frowny Manhunter weirds me out. I guess it's pretty 70's.

So J'onn J'onzz is taking pictures of himself again and posting them on DeviantArt? I thought he was too busy to do stuff like that...
