The Brave and the Bold

I was asked by the WB producers of Batman the Brave and the Bold, to do some action poses of different DC characters to be included on the opening title sequence. The best part it's that Kamandi was one of those characters. Kamandi is a DC Comics comic book character created by acclaimed artist Jack Kirby. The bulk of Kamandi's appearances occurred in the comic series Kamandi: The Last Boy on Earth, which ran from 1972 to 1978. Kamandi is a young hero in a post-apocalyptic future. After a huge event called "The Great Disaster", humans are a persecuted minority in a world ruled by intelligent, highly evolved animals. I grew up on that plus Kamandi was one of my first Kirby comics.
One of the other many characters was Jonah Hex. Jonah Hex is a fictional character, a Western comic book anti-hero created by writer John Albano and artist Tony DeZuniga.
The right side of his face is horribly distinctly scarred. He was an officer for the Confederacy during the American Civil War, fought at Gettysburg and is normally shown wearing a tattered Confederate States Army jacket. Hex is surly and cynical, and is in many ways similar to Clint Eastwood's Man with No Name or The Outlaw Josey Wales.
I heard the show it's doing well.
BTW needless to say these images are copyright WB Animation and DC Comics.

Batman the Brave and the Bold

Another project I've had the pleasure to work on is Batman the Brave and the Bold. Batman: The Brave and the Bold is the name of an upcoming animated television series based in part on the comic book series of the same name. Batman having a pronounced cleft chin, will team-up with several other DC Comics heroes. The show is scheduled to debut on November 14, 2008 at 8:00 pm, on Cartoon Network. I promise after the show it's aired I'll post a couple of my designs. Here is a screen grab from two of my designs.
Enjoy the opening sequence on this link... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_Yg24vfokc 

Dead Space Downfall

Good Anime , low quality in graphics, excelect B movie. It is dark , bloody full goar like a Ramirez film.
The story is pretty much straightforward. Dead planet, host parasitic alien form, comes to ship and kills everyone.
If you are into horror Sci Fi, you may like it.
For the record all of this images are copyright either EA of Film Roman.

Here is one of my "character design" jobs. Miner # 1 covered in blood.

Another "design" for one of the many Slashers...

They actually misspelled my last name after I made them read it back to me properly... it's Tejeda not Tejada.
They misspelled my last name on The Simpsons Movie too, but after I demand an explanation they corrected it for the DVD release. You would think in a multimillion dollar industry the people in charge of the credits would check how to spell everyone's names...once again that's Hollywood for ya.
