    Here's the entire Justice Crew: (L to R): Mi-Ju with her hover-pods, POL-E, Capt. Justice, Professor Darius Flaznagel.
    Modified "J" symbol to show Justice's fascination with the mighty octopus, also reflected in the design of his overjacket. In the international waters of this new world, Justice and Flaznagel realized their dream of adopting, and young Mi-Ju became an indispensable member of "The 8 Arms of Justice".

    Tangentially inspired by the MASTER AND COMMANDER series of books by Patrick O'Brian (which I've not read, but have heard nearly the entire series blasted from my wife's studio on audio books for the last year!), and the special/slash-worthy relationship of Captain Aubrey and Stephen Maturin. Eh, I figured let Justice find love as well as adventure on the high seas. Their relationship also clears the way for putting a 13-year-old girl with two older men.

    EDIT: Here's my Octopus J logo. I was pretty happy with the mark, and thought I'd dump an image up here, suitable for tattooing.

    Odaelisabeth,

    I certainly don't consider myself an "artist" (at least not a visual artist), but that didn't stop me!

    @ Paul Sizer Gadzooks man! That is killer! The J is some beautiful typography too :)

    @Kyle-latino I love your the old school sensibility of your piece!

    @sobreiro Dig the colors and style, your robo-parrot is my favorite!

    @andrenavarro Thanks so much for the compliment! I love that your midge has a little gun of it's own!

    As a wise woman once said: "The good stuff's right here!"

    Amazing work by everyone, and some truly, utterly, delicious work by many.

    Oh, and praise be to Integral Danton, Love Swami, Internet Guru, Warren Ellis for bringing R:R back.

    @ Paul Sizer: That logo is superb. Congrats.

    Thanks man, YOURS kicks major ass, nice controlled palette.

    @BryantPaul
    Cool,clean and fun. Nice rendering, and great colors!

    @Kyle-Latino
    Man, you got it SOLID! Nice loose lines.

    My wife Jane is so proud that her influence of listening to the Patrick O'Brian books DID in fact seep into my head, even if it came out in this weird way. Thanks hon!

    cap j

    It all started with the Silver Long Johns, that and every time I hear "pirate" I get flashbacks to Orlando Bloom...

    Much, much apologies to mr. Dave Gibbons.

    I felt my first version really needed improvement so I hope it is OK to put up a second version.

    Hi everybody. I'm new in the forums, but I made my own sketch and I'd like to play. Here's my Captain Justice:

    Alberto's Captain Justice

    I decided not to look at everybody else's sketches until I'd finished my own. Now I see my version has some features (cap, striped tee) in common with kyle-latino's. His Captain is one of my favorites, but I hope you enjoy mine too.

    Awesome art and concepts, guys. I'll be looking forward to the next one.

    This thread is pure love.

    Sobreiro, your robot parrot is totally awesome.

    @tyim I dig the crazy foot brace thing, nice change from the peg-leg

    @Edwin I love me some big monsters, and that one is epic!

    @Sean a definite improvement

    last but not least @Alberto Your Captain is studly to the max!! He can swash my buckle anytime! Love the colors too ;)

    @Alberto

    THAT'S KICK ASS! Man, you nailed it! I love the rocket on the Titanic Tower. His iPod is pretty great too. I'm too button-down to think of those sweet tats. I really look forward to seeing you other REMODELS.

    It's funny, we both jumped on the forum because of this post. Haha

    My interpretation for Captain Justice was a 25th century pirate-hero, who wears a naval emblem that's half-covered to hint at his military past. He carries a lightning rapier and has a cybernetic eye under his eye patch.
