I think (and again know so) that The Atom is going to be pretty damn cool, probably one of the coolest things I got to work on this year. So besides those 2, they have also announced that the 8th episode will be a 2 hours cross over episode with the Flash which I have also started working on. They are building a pretty rich DC universe on TV, announcing a new character almost every few weeks, Katanna, Komodo, Cupid....
I'll talk about the designs more when I can eventually show and talk about them! All I can say is thank you CW and the producers for making these shows so I can geek out at work. I've attached the link to the season 3 trailer below!

Many have speculated who would Roy Harper ultimately become in the Arrow-verse. Speedy? Red Arrow? Arsenal? In the finale of season 2, Roy finally put on a mask but with his normal red hoodie street clothes to help team Arrow to fight the Deathstroke army but still without a hero alias yet. The mask is essentially a red version of the Arrow mask, seems abit simple? Well during the San Diego Comic Con, they have finally revealed who he will become in season 3 and the first photo of him as - wait for it - ARSENAL! I've kept my mouth shut for awhile since I started doing his concept back in the middle of season 2. The Arsenal suit was pretty cool to work on but since they have only showed 1 image of it, I will wait until the show airs before I show the full concept and talk about the details further. For now here is a little sneak peek head shot of the full illustration.
Ravager! Played by the cult fan favorite Summer Glau. She appeared in the season finale of season 2. This design was really fun to do as usual. I had to again do some further research on who she is, what she is like, how she looks to get a better core idea of what elements I must have in order for her to still read as Ravager in the Arrow-verse. The easy part was that Deathstroke has already been established, so she is essentially an extension of him but sleeker and sexier. We decided to have her abit more stealth and subtle than Deathstroke so shes only in black and abit or orange and without the blue. The make is the trickiest part for this character because they actually want to show part of her face unlike Deathstroke, so it naturally goes into a more superhero realm than the realistic side. Summer Glau's face also has a really strong structure, therefore framing her face without making her look too masculine was abit challenging.
Go Deathstroke army!!

Well the mid season finale episode of Arrow aired last week, and man what a great episode! They manage to twist it abit into a Xmas episode by using the idea of the 3 ghosts idea from Christmas Carol and remain being an action packed well written grounder superhero episode. There are tons of cool stuff for everyone from superhero fans to people who just love good action, or people who love a well written show. The coolest part for me, was I get to conceptualize the Arrow Mask in this episode. How he gets it I'll let you guys find out. Its feeling like things are escalating !!!
SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HARDCORE COMIC FANS WILL SCREAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was also the origin episode for Barry Allen being in the accident that turns him into The Flash, which will be a new DC series on CW. They also introduced Solomon Grundy, in the Arrow universe way.
It is that time again! Another character revealed on Arrow, this time a masked villain, Brother Blood! Like Bronze tiger, I did not have too much knowledge about him, so I had to do my research. He was a Vampire / cult leader in the comic books, but I like the direction they are going for on Arrow. I did quite a few versions of the mask, and we ended up going for a simpler version. I pretty excited about his character on the show because it seems like they are using him to build up to something bigger and badder! Enjoy.
