Blast Off

Jahr-Drake Ningle (Post-Zero Hour). Blast Off was a member of Leland McCauley's Workforce. 
He and Atom'x of the Uncanny Amazers died in the battle fighting Mordru.
Blast Off was later discovered to live on as a gestalt energy form and joined the Legion as Drake Borroughs aka Wildfire.
I've spent some time on this BG and the fire fx. It was difficult to find reference for this character. Nevertheless I always enjoy bringing to life classic characters from long ago and doing my contemporary take on it. 
Incidentally, I often go comics shopping to Blastoff, that's the name of a really good comic book store in North Hollywood. Here is the link to the store's Facebook page:        https://www.facebook.com/pages/Blastoff-Comics/225861877482304
Anyhow, have a great weekend.

Khundian Legionnaires

Khund Legion. A short-lived team of champions from the planet Khundia who teamed up with the Legion of Super-Heroes to stop the undead army of Mordru. Flederweb, Bloodclaw, Firefist and Veilmist.
The BG is from www.shutterstock.com, I've changed it a little to work with the characters better. 
Now that Bloodclaw it's done I can complete the classic group shot for these Khund monkeys.
I've been super busy with work so enjoy what's probably some of my Legion art for a while. 
Cheers

Bloodclaw

A super-strong Khundian with indestructible cybernetic claws, Blood Claw was a short-lived member of the Legion of Super-Heroes in the Glorithverse. He was killed in action against Mordru's legion of the dead. The original BG it's from www.begann.de  I've touched it up a bit.
Khundian group shot next?

Dragonmage

Dragonmage, real name Xao Jin, is a member of the Legion of Super Heroes in the 30th Century. Born on the New Shanghai Colony, he is a powerful magic-user. His spells are always accompanied by images of dragons. In Reboot Legion continuity, Dragonmage is seen as an applicant for the Legion but is rejected. Dragonmage was created by Tom Biernaumm and Mary Biennium, first appearing in Legion of Super Heroes (Volume 4) #33 in 1992,
The BG was originally made by Adam Kuczek. I've modified and added elements to work better with the character. Check out his DeviantArt page: http://adamkuczek.deviantart.com
To the minority of Legion fans that actually read my posts, thanks for waiting. I've been crazy busy with multiple projects. Hope you like it.

Bat-Chappie


Really... Chappie.
I don't know what all this attention to DC's nonsensical news today it's all about.
Whaddabadah
Actually looks more like an Apple Seed copycat, Chappie like the recent released film it's more contemporary. The whole bunny ears doesn't work that well with 'Batman", unless they are also planing to change the name to Bunnyman.
For those who have no idea what I'm talking about. Today DC Comics announced the new look for Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman starting in June. For the most part everyone hates it.
Yup, so that robotic armor it's what Batman will look like from now on in the comics.
I'm sure everyone at Marvel are laughing hard.
Sups and Wonder Bread are next. 
Seriously...
