YOUNG JUSTICE: Psimon by philbourassa YOUNG JUSTICE: Psimon by philbourassa
I had never heard of this character before I read the script for show 9, but I still had a blast designing him. You gotta love a guy who is ugly as hell but still a sharp dresser.

Must suck not having a skull. No wonder he keeps getting knocked into comas.

I always loved this design for Psimon, one of the show's creepiest villains. If you don't mind me asking Philbourassa, could you tell me the origins of Psimon's powers?

In the comics he got his abilities from Trigon, but the TV series never explained where his psychic powers & strange appearance came from. Its cool if ya can't tell me or if the show never planned any origin for him, just thought I'd ask.

Late reply, but I have a theory he's a White Martian. It would explain why he could hold his own against Miss Martian in a psychic battle, his whitish skin, and yeah, his psychic powers.

Just don't call him Brainiac. He hates that.

This dude has a cool power yet he creeps me out.
I used to wonder why super villains get sch good pwers then I realised that if they didn't, the shows and movies would be short and suckish because there wouldn't be any challenges, and the heroes wouldn't be able to prove themselves .
I also wonder where supervillains get there pshycotic ideas to take over the planet end stuff like that, I meacome on, are they born like that or what?
BTW this is really cool!

I like your version of Psimon! Very sneaky, sly, and creepy looking. What's his origin btw? I mean, if he's not a metahuman, how did he get his powers?

Simon was definitely a creepy yet cool addition to the villain roster for the show, how different is he from the comics? or is he a new character made for the show? I like how his skull is transparent lol

Don't feel too bad, Philly. I've never heard of many of the YJ villains. So far that hasn't detracted from my enjoyment of the show. :highfive: Hahaha! I never thought of Psimon like that, but now it makes so much sense.

Do you ever feel pigeon holed into a drawing style for an animated series and wish to explore more elaborate designs? I love the look for your characters, I just wonder if you ever feel boxed in and wish you could do more? Also, when you create work for yourself or even other clients do you use the same style you have used in the past? Do you feel this style reflects who you are as an artist?
