If this image below, which was released last night at Variety.com, looks familiar to you, you're very right. It appears to be a variant of a comic book cover created by Simone Bianchi for Geoff Johns' Revenge of the Green Lanterns mini-series.
Upon closer inspection, the differences are fairly obvious: Angle of the mask, transparency over the eyes, the ring design, glove texture and the CGI-esque green "flames."

After browsing over every Green Lantern comic book cover from 1998 to present, including variant covers included in trade paperback collections, I have yet to see this image duplicated or in larger format. Why would be this be a hint at the movie costume or ring? The context of the Variety piece was to promote Green Lantern movie merchandise, which will premiere at next week's Licensing International Expo in Las Vegas, NV.
Since we've had more false positives on possible Green Lantern concept art than Britney Spears has had on pregnancy tests, the call is being put out to all our resident CBM sleuths to hunt down any previous trace of this artwork.
Confirmation should be made sometime next week with the unveiling of all the Green Lantern movie goodies at the Expo; but us fanboys and girls aren't well known for our patience.
Many thanks to CBM member InterestingJohn for bringing this to our attention this morning!
CONFIRMED! Variety Senior Editor Marc Graser was kind enough to respond to my information request about this image, considering his article was where it first appeared:
This is artwork that Warner Bros. Consumer Products had exclusively reproduced by DC Comics, and was given to him directly from Warner Bros. It’s inspired by Green Lantern #10, Volume 4. Warner Bros. Consumer Products is working in conjunction with Mattel to create Green Lantern movie-based merchandise; some of which will be displayed at next week's Licensing International Expo.
And there you have it. This image is our first look at part of Hal Jordan's attire for Green Lantern, as well as the ring design for both the film and merchandise. Though it doesn't reveal too much, it does confirm that he will be wearing his trademark domino mask and gloves; not to mention the updated look of his ring.
Warner Bros. Consumer Products has also released these images to License! Magazine, one of the companies leading next week's Expo. It appears we now have our first look of the official Green Lantern movie logo and title as well:
