Me and my home girls that's my crew
Happy #JusticeLeague Day! The JL cartoon first premiered on @cartoonnetworkofficial on this day in 2001. “Secret Origins” followed the formation of the League and marked a transition into the grander #DCAnimatedUniverse. #dcau #jlreunion #dc #dccomics

Unbelievable seeing this on the big screen. (Don’t worry, I was in the back row and this was the only part I filmed). The score, the animation...truly awesome. Did you see “Mask of the Phantasm” in theaters tonight? Happy 25th anniversary! #batman #batmanmaskofthephantasm #phantasm #maskofthephantasm #fathom #fathomevents #dc #dccomics #dcau #dcanimateduniverse #dcanimated #dcanimation

I often do the color flats for Legacies, and I'll sometime do the occasional effect before James does the final shading and special effects. So since I drew this one, I kinda knew which effects to go ahead a do, like the blurred vial in front of Robin.

The final panel started with me tracing a screencap from the BTAS episode "Dreams in Darkness", then rotating it, moving the rough trace around until I got the angle I thought worked best. Then I had to extrapolate where I wanted the shadows to be, since I wasn't doing a painted background like the episode used. So I couldn't just copy the gradient tones. There's one other panel in the book that is a trace of a very famous Batman panel. I'm still waiting to see if anyone notices it. (legaciesDCAU.com) #MarkDanielMartinez

This is the first time I've ever gotten to play with so much black. I've heard it was kinda fun, and turns out it really is.

For the reference to the #BTAS episode "Nothing to Fear", I needed to use the scene where Dr. Long, under the effect of Scarecrow's fear toxin, sees his worst fear manifest in his decaying hands. In the episode, the hands are only skeleton hands from his point of view. When the camera switches back to our POV, they're perfectly normal. So for this panel, I decided to combine the two camera angles, and we see the same thing Long is seeing. I think it better emphasizes the terror of the moment. (legaciesDCAU.com) #MarkDanielMartinez

Rough pencils for the first page of Scary Things. @dcauwatchtower

Pretty much used the same layout @millicay95 had thumbed, like the outstretched arms going off panel and the layout of the panels. One of my ideas was to make the cell the same cell Batman was in for the BTAS episode "Dreams in Darkness". That gave me some really moody shadows to work with, and the final panel is nearly identical to the camera angle used in that episode looking down on Batman. (LegaciesDCAU.com)
