YOUNG JUSTICE: Box Art by philbourassa YOUNG JUSTICE: Box Art by philbourassa
Here are some drawings I did for the cancelled Young Justice Invasion toy line. They were intended to fit around the box framing the blister pack for the 6 inch and 4 inch figures. The space around the box limited the types of figures that would fit its dimensions and thus determined the range of poses that would be suitable. I applied a little more rendering than I am normally comfortable with to accommodate the style of art that would likely please the toy company. I am usually reticent to indulge in too much rendering when depicting animated characters because regardless of skill level or execution the more subtlety in gradation and texture generally pushes the character further from being truly "on model".
There was a Superboy that I did for the box as well, but I wasn't happy with the results so I left him out here.
Also, since this was colored for print and converted to RGB for the screen some of the colors have changed a bit from the original file.

sadly it's not going to come back. or it appears so. it's been forever since the show was canceled and no word of more seasons to come. sad. i'm not big on the super hero genre but i really loved this series. especially Blue Beetle. i was hope for more of him. but nope. no more.  

 nice to see Blue. not many draw him.

Those animated features DC makes like Justice league Doom and Superman Unbound. They should make one of those for Young Justice to give it an ending it deserves. Superboy would take off at Darkseid and the light. Lex Luthor "You can fly?" BAAMMMM!!! Darkseid shoots into space and through the Warworld.

Young justice was awesome and could of been better without all the hiatus breaks Cartoon Network took. Any chance you have the forever people and runaways artwork?

I think I know why they had that ending like it was, well atleast part of it, in the old comic series Nightwing left the team (the titans back then) and retired but was forced to come back after Deathstroke (aka Slade) started causing havoc big time, I think they're preparing something with new Deathstroke that will be big mega scale and that Nightwing is gonna have to come back to face him since it was always in the original Deathstroke who turned the first Robin into Nightwing

Hey thanks for the compliment. I actually really like what Chris Jones is doing. Since I'm too busy with animation work to draw it myself it's nice to see a talented artist stay pretty faithful to my work in the comic version.

Absolutely. I dig the art, but I like the tv show lineup more. Sometimes I think DC would benefit more from taking the animated versions and making them their main books.

Please please please save young justice! This show has amazing animation and well-developed characters! It reintroduced me to DC and superheroes altogether! CN is deciding on whether to draw the curtains on this awesome show in order to make room for new DC shows, despite young justice's popularity and growing fandom. Besides, I just don't get why the new shows and young justice just can't run together. This show is wayyyyy too amazing and visually stunning. It reintroduces lost DC characters, and has brilliant plot lines. And yes, this petition can help! It kept family guy on air before, so why not young justice? Please DO something and actually help save young justice! Go to the link below and sign the Petition. Get other people to sign too! Save young justice!!! ;)

okay, mind settling a bet? Since Aqualad "turned evil" I've been calling him "black moray" or "black eel" because he's Black Manta's son and also his own man, with a slight eel theme (referring to his previous tattoos). However, a buddy of mine calls him "black manta junior", which i guess i understand but disagree with. And another friend of mine call's him "Dark Aqualad" which i understand even less. Please answer which one of us is closest when you can, thank you for your time.
