Warm Up Sketch: Hal Jordan

13 May, 2016 | Posted in Sketches

Hal Jordan is the most well-known Green Lantern. He is the first earthman ever inducted into the Green Lantern Corps, and has been heralded as possibly the greatest Green Lantern of all time. Hal is also a founding member of the Justice League of America. He has also been known as Parallax and the Spectre.

The character was created in 1959 by writer John Broome and artist Gil Kane, and first appeared in Showcase #22 published by DC Comics. With the ability to overcome great fear and harness the power of will, test-pilot Hal Jordan was chosen to be the Green Lantern of Sector 2814 inheriting the ring of the dying alien Green Lantern, Abin Sur. Through sheer will power and determination, Hal has established an impressive record of heroism across the galaxy with the help of his fellow Green Lanterns as well as his peers in the Justice League.

I used pencil to lay down the rough outlines and a gel pen to ink.
