ANIMATED LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES STYLE GUIDE
(2006)

 

A STYLE guide was commissioned by the producers of the series so that animators and colorists knew what sort of look to adhere to.
    The DVD featured designs converted to vector art by revered comic book illustrator Mike Zeck, and included character illos, graphic design elements, turnarounds, fonts, banners and iconography.

PRELIMINARY CHARACTER DESIGNS (2005-2006)

 

Chief producer and animator James Tucker, aided by artist Lynell Hakim Forestall, produced many of the preliminary sketches and concepts for the series, polished by Mike Zeck above. Here are some of the designs.


 

One of the background artists, Michael Swanigan, collected many of the roughs from the series into a book, which includes plot synopses, story plans, sketches, layouts and rejected ideas. Excerpts are shown below. Note that the book is not an official licenced publication.

 

Note that in this last synopsis, a number of villains are listed, but not all of them eventually made it into the series. Some future Legionnaires are also planned to be introduced as adversaries.
