And here is my final version...for now. I'm sure every time I look at it I'll find something else to add or fix. But for now I think it's good enough to post.
Think of it as a little tribute to some of my comic book artist heroes.
I seriously doubt there is someone who doesn't know who Wonder Woman or Captain America is.
If you are one of those people perhaps you are the reason of what is wrong with the world today.
So here, educate yourself...Wonder Woman is a DC Comics superheroine created by William Moulton Marston. She first appeared in All Star Comics #8 (December 1941). As the princess of the amazons her powers include superhuman strength, flight, super-speed, super-stamina, and super-agility. She is highly proficient in hand-to-hand combat and in the art of tactical warfare. She also possesses an animal-like cunning and a natural rapport with animals, which has in the past been presented as an actual ability to communicate with the animal kingdom. She uses her Lasso of Truth, which forces those bound by it to tell the truth, a pair of indestructible bracelets and a tiara which serves as a projectile.
Captain America first appeared in Captain America Comics #1 (March 1941), from Marvel Comics' 1940s predecessor, Timely Comics, and was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. Captain America was the alter ego of Steve Rogers, a frail young man who was enhanced to the peak of human perfection by an experimental serum in order to aid the United States war effort. Captain America wears a costume that bears an American flag motif, and is armed with an indestructible shield that can be thrown as a weapon.
And yes, they are both good guys...woman. Why would they fight? I don't know. Since either character didn't have a similar version on different comic book companies it seemed a perfect match. It appears WW was the DC Comics response to Marvel's Cap. America during World War II.
If you ask me, I think Wonder Woman would kick Captain America's ass in a real fight. After all she IS a goddess. Don't get me wrong the Cap. it's one of my favorite comic book characters since I was a kid, but a Demi-goddess vs. a super-human...Demi-goddess would win.
Once again thanx for stopping bye my Blog, cheers.

Rough version of some Green Lantern Corps for Batman the Brave and the Bold.
Green Lantern Corps is the name of an intergalactic police force appearing in comics published by DC Comics. They patrol the farthest reaches of the DC Universe at the behest of the Guardians; a race of immortals residing on the planet Oa. According to DC continuity, the Green Lantern Corps has been in existence for three billion years; surviving multiple conflicts both internal and foreign. Divided as pairs amongst the 3600 “sectors” of the universe, over 7200 members (known commonly as Green Lanterns) are estimated as serving within the Corps. Each Green Lantern is given a power ring, a weapon granting the use of incredible abilities that are directed by the wearer's own willpower.
Here is the beginning of that episode.

Some other art I did for the Avengers The World's Mightiest Heroes. In this episode named "The Casket of Ancient Winters" the Avengers must stop Malekith the Accursed after he obtains the Casket of Ancient Winters (an ancient relic capable of unleashing an everlasting winter on Earth). Introducing characters: Dark Elves (Malekith) As usual always fun drawing beautiful Asgardian women and getting paid for it too, woo-hoo...
One of my assignments for the Avengers episode "The Fall of Asgard". Lost and separated, the Avengers struggle to survive in the realms of Asgard. Introducing characters: Hela, Ulik, Dwarves (Eitri), Light Elves (Faradei), Valkyrie.
Always fun working for Marvel and get to draw hot Asgardian women.

Ladies and gentlemen I'm happy to present my first 3D artwork.
Last night I went to a channeling psychic medium session called "The Circle of Light" performed by my friend Riz Mirza www.rizmirza.com The event was hosted at Leigh McCloskey's place www.leighmccloskey.com an amazing artist and a modern Renaissance Man. You can appreciate his artwork in 3D, yes that's right in 3D. By wearing the paper 3D glasses his artwork turns 3D, it's mind boggling. You can get those glasses at www.3dglassesonline.com
I was inspired by Leigh's amazing art last night and around midnight I played with my Ayahuasca Vision artwork and voilà I got instant 3D. I put on the 3D glasses and realized I achieved my first 3D art piece. I hope you enjoy it!
Thanks Leigh for the great source of inspiration.

And to continue with my "Versus" series, I thought what if we get the ice superpower people from Marvel and DC Comics together, would they battle? I don't really know any male superheroes equivalent to Marvel's Iceman, at least to my knowledge. They're all seems to be villains, Mr. Freeze, Captain Cold, etc...But what if there was a crossover where Iceman would face Killer Frost, would they really fight? If you were an ice made man and came across an ice made "hot" chick, I think the last thing you would do it's fight. Catch my drift? I know this goes against my tradition of making DC, Marvel, Dark Horse or Image characters fight against the equivalent of each other's universe, but it seemed appropriate under this occasion.
Oh, yeah...I almost forgot the comic book education for the comic book illiterate:
Iceman (Robert "Bobby" Louis Drake) is a Marvel Comics superhero, a member of the X-Men. Created by writer Stan Lee and artist/co-writer Jack Kirby, he first appeared in X-Men (vol. 1) #1, (September 1963).
A mutant, Iceman has the ability of cryokinesis where he can freeze anything around him and can also turn his body into ice. Although he is an Omega-level mutant, Drake has yet to tap his full mutant potential. He has, however, begun to take more interest over the years in developing his abilities. One of the original X-Men, Iceman has had a frequent presence in X-Men (and Spider-Man)-related comics, video games, animated series, and movies.
Killer Frost is the name of two characters in the DC Comics universe. They are both supervillains that appear mainly as foes of the superhero Firestorm.
Crystal Frost first appeared in Firestorm #3 (June 1978). While Crystal Frost was studying to be a scientist in Hudson University, she fell in love with her teacher, Martin Stein. While working on a project in the Arctic, Frost was upset to learn that Stein didn't reciprocate her feelings. Frost accidentally locked herself in a thermafrost chamber, but somehow survived. She was transformed in a way that she was able to absorb heat from a living being and project cold and ice. Calling herself Killer Frost, she began her murderous crusade against men and clashed with Firestorm on many occasions. Frost eventually died after she absorbed too much energy from Firestorm.
Dr. Louise Lincoln first appeared in Firestorm (vol. 2) # 21 (March 1984). She was a colleague and friend to Crystal Frost. After her friend died, she decided to repeat the experiment as a last respect to her former mentor, and became the new Killer Frost. She became just as ruthless as her predecessor and began her own personal vendetta against Firestorm, whom she blamed for Frost's death. She briefly served as a member of the Suicide Squad and sold her soul to Neron for more power.
Obviously I decided to draw the most recent one, the one alive in the DC Universe.

Ayahuasca is used largely as a religious sacrament. Users of ayahuasca in non-traditional contexts often align themselves with the philosophies and cosmologies associated with ayahuasca shamanism, as practiced among indigenous peoples like the Urarina of Peruvian Amazonia. While non-native users know of the spiritual applications of ayahuasca, a less well-known traditional usage focuses on the medicinal properties of ayahuasca. Its purgative properties are important (known as la purga or "the purge"). The intense vomiting and occasional diarrhea it induces can clear the body of worms and other tropical parasites, and harmala alkaloids themselves have been shown to be anthelmintic. Thus, this action is twofold; a direct action on the parasites by these harmala alkaloids (particularly harmine in ayahuasca) works to kill the parasites, and parasites are expelled through the increased intestinal motility that is caused by these alkaloids.
Ayahuasca is any of various psychoactive infusions or decoctions prepared from the Banisteriopsis spp. vine, usually mixed with the leaves of dimethyltryptamine-containing species of shrubs from the Psychotria genus. A notable and puzzling property of ayahuasca is that neither of the ingredients cause any significant psychedelic effects when imbibed alone; they must be consumed together in order to have the desired effect. How indigenous peoples discovered the psychedelic properties of the ayahuasca brew remains unknown.
The legal status in the United States of DMT-containing plants is somewhat questionable. Ayahuasca plants and preparations are legal, as they contain no scheduled chemicals. However, brews made using DMT containing plants are illegal since DMT is a Schedule I drug. A court case allowing União do Vegetal to use the tea for religious purposes in the United States, Gonzales v. O Centro Espirita Beneficente Uniao do Vegetal, was heard by the U.S. Supreme Court on November 1, 2005; the decision, released February 21, 2006, allows the UDV to use the tea in its ceremonies pursuant to the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
During a ceremony of Ayahuasca I saw this vision while my eyes were closed. I did not purge, since I've never done so well spiritually, emotionally and physically in my whole entire life. Nevertheless I had an amazing and profound spiritual experience that helped me transcend myself for a better person.
Gracias Mama Ayahuasca

Nova Star it's an epic Science Fiction film I've been developing over the past decade. It used to be called Terranova, but due to the upcoming new tv series by Steven Spielberg Terra Nova (two separate words) I had to come up with a new name.
Here is the teaser with a mixture of some rough key frames done by myself and a collection of artwork from a very talented group of artist. It features the amazing deep voice of Lenord Robinson as the narrator and the music from the talented Constance Demby.
It's a very complex story full of spiritual insight that walks hand in hand with action and adventure. It's been originally intended for a live action theatrical film, all thou at this point I'm open for it to be made into any media, such as a video game, direct dvd cartoon (2D, 3D or both), tv show (live action or animated), etc...the possibilities are endless. That's without mentioning the franchise of action figures and merchandise.
It's been strategically design to reach every age, gender and race of society with the purpose of expanding the collective consciousness of humanity.
Unlike most of the current Hollywood films, Nova Star exposes the majority of the extraterrestrial beings as very spiritually advanced therefore benevolent. As our ancestors and creators.
The message of Nova Star to the world it's that spirituality it's the key to evolution.

Keep an open mind, be in the now and remember who you really are...
Love and Light.
