YOUNG JUSTICE: Beast Boy by philbourassa YOUNG JUSTICE: Beast Boy by philbourassa
This is sort of a departure from the traditional look for Beast Boy. I guess my inspiration for the character was some of the imagery surrounding the Monkey King legend (aka Journey to the West, which I believe is chinese folklore) as well as Hank McCoy from the X-Men with a little Eddie Munster thrown in just for kicks.

And gave him a different origin story. It's pretty awesome, you should check it out. Or maybe not. Because if you stay blissfully ignorant of how awesome Young Justice was, you'll never fall victim to the same outrage we all suffered when they canceled it after just two seasons.

I watched the first few episodes where they found superboy.  x3  I loved it.  And I'm so happy it was directed by my favorite script writer, Greg Weisman.  :D  It is a shame that his ideas and shows he scripts get shut down like that  >:I  If I ever hit the lottery, I would sponsor him to remake "Gargoyles."

Not a fan of the tail, but the rest looks great.

Also, is there just a shade of green used for shapeshifters? Because the Martian Manhunter is also Shapeshifter Green.

Hmm, I have to say this is am interesting take on him.

I myself, am a fan of the Beast Boy from the Teen Titans cartoon, but this is pretty neat looking.

I like the red suit better than the purple one, I think that red gives him his own look and not still a doom patrol member. I also like how you guys connected him with Miss Martian and J'onn. I always thought that he might look up to J'onn because of similarities between them. Also I never really noticed the Eddie Munster inspiration before but now I see it in his hair. While I don't mind the monkey look I preferred his 8 year old green look when Megan went to comfort him.  I would really have liked to seen him growing into his powers with Megan or j'onn though.

It seems suiting, seeing as how Garfield Logan was bitten by a green monkey before becoming BB.

His eyes are Amber because of Megan's blood transfusion, Megan has Amber eyes and being half Martian beast boy can change any part or all of his body his eyes are only green in battle

... And you made Beast Boy a monkey... I know he was bit by a green monkey when he was a kid, but he didn't become one.

Sorry, just my opinion... and my bad history with primates.

He's not a monkey, this is just the default form he chooses to present himself in. Think of all the temporary phases kids might go through in their adolescence and now add a shape shifting ability to the mix. Given his somewhat isolated childhood on a nature reserve and losing his mother it's not that hard to imagine he would act out or become fixated in strange ways.

He kind of looks like when he did back when his New Earth counterpart was clashing with the current Teen Titans because they didn't like him as a leader.

I really like this version of Beast Boy; I don't think he can really fairly be compared to the TT version, because they're so different and amazing in their own ways.

I think the fur and tail were a really nice touch! But I'm just really happy that you kept the freckles. I also like how his mischievousness isn't completely childlike - it has an element of dirt to it, for lack of a better word. It seems almost... Harsh. Cynical, even.

Anyway, you did a great job with the concept of "Beast Boy".

I love the Teen Titans version of Beast Boy, but this one is a very creative design AND it makes me want to design a character like this, so this one wins by a good margin. Very cool.
