Ascending Alignment


My latest mixed media 3D painting.
Originally done in Photoshop
32.16 H x 40 W 
Ciclee, stretched on canvas.
Details to be added with acrylic and texturized with clear gel.
It becomes 3D when viewed with Chromadepth 3D glasses.  
Considering we are in the Age of Aquarius and all the astrological activity, eclipses and alignments; I was compelled to create a Cosmic piece. 
Hope you like it.

Sheeple World


My latest mixed media painting "Sheeple World"  

Photoshop, printed on canvas, painted with acrylic on top of it and texturized with clear gel.

We live in a world where the majority of people "the masses" are easily led and manipulated by the mainstream media narrative. Mostly a fear based system, like most religions, where the sheeple compliant and easily influenced folks have been divided more than ever recently due to politics, big tech, big pharma and the Covid agenda.

The "female" black werewolf on this painting symbolizes the great awakening movement that has emerged due to the recent world events. 

Think for yourselves, don't be sheep.

Dream Boy

Rol Purtha, known as Dream Boy comes from the planet Naltor. He appeared at the Legion Headquarters after the death of his predecessor Dream Girl, as a replacement by Naltor's High Seer. Ha can see visions of the future in his dreams. He can also foresee events seconds to hours before they occur due to his second class precognitive ability. Although he can also focus his visions on objects such as predicting Brainiac's security codes.
It's becoming challenging to draw actual Legionnaires, since I've drawn just about all main characters and mostly rejects remain in my list.
I'll have a new 36x24 poster with every Legionnaire I've ever drawn at Comic Con this year.
Look for updates on my Instagram Page, tommytejeda1111.
Long live the Legion!

Scarlet Witch

Pretty self explanatory, a witch that is scarlet. Daughter of Magneto. Very powerful indeed.

Friday, April 27, 2018


Avengers Infinity War was amazing. I can't wait to see it again. I've been waiting to see a live action super hero movie like this since I was a kid. Well done Marvel!!!
Here is my quick lunch sketch I did for Instagram.

Cosmic Boy (Mike Grell version)

Here is the Cosmic Boy from the 70's Mike Grell came up with.
His real name is Rokk Krinn and he is a founder of the Legion of Super Heroes.
His super-power is super magnetism. He can manipulate metal objects.
Believe it or not this was the first costume I've ever saw of the character, since I've discovered my first Legion comic in the 70's. Of course I prefer other designs, but think of this as a tribute to my childhood.
Long Live the Legion!

Duplicate Boy

Real name Ord Quelu of the planet Lallor. First apear in Adventure Comics #324 September 1964. He was a member of the Heroes of Lallor in the 30th Century along with the Legion of Super Heroes.
Duplicate Boy can duplicate any superpower he has ever encounter and is able to use more than one at a time. The background is from an animated screensaver in a loop. This is just a modified screen-grab. I've changed some minor elements to the design itself since I didn't like the original, like the shorts for example.
Hope you like it Legion fans.
Long live the Legion!

Eyeful Ethel

Real name Ethel Lynn Niwtyn. Originally she had a ring of eyes on her head. In the Retroboot she can grow eyes all over her body at will. Ethel's unusual vision is the product of black market bio-engineering performed on her by her parents before conception. She was rejected from the Legion of Super Heroes since her abilities were not useful in battle. 
She became a criminal with Tusker later on.
Here is the Eyeful Ethel from the Retroboot / New Earth. In this version she was stopped by Superman and the Legion, actually Rainbow Girl from the Legion of Substitute Heroes stopped her and was locked up in New Takron Galtos.
The BG it's titled Follow the Light and was made by the talented Aurora900.
Sometimes I feel like doing a Legion reject, they are for sure very interesting characters to draw, specially the sexy ones.
Long Live the Legion ya'all.

Supernova from Rick and Morty, from the episode Vindicators 3. I think that character is awesome so I made my own version. Imagine the characters from Rick and Morty drawn in this style LOL. That would make a hell of the episode! 

Friday, January 26, 2018

Jungle King

Jungle King wanted to join the Legion of Super Heroes but was rejected. His power is controlling animals. He became the Monster Master later on, leading a collection of monsters, but died in battle.
The BG was done by Philip Staub. I had to look at some Wrightson for the liana. Some times Legionnaire rejects are fun to draw too, depends on the character I guess.

Wednesday, January 24, 2018


Devlin O'Ryan is a native of the planet Xanthu. He has the ability to reflect virtually any physical or energy attack. He was romantically involved with Shrinking Violet, and he was also a journalist at the Daily Planet. Reflex was de-aged into childhood by the mistress Glorith. 
The BG was made by Alex Kam, I've retouched very little. 
I'm doing my best to continue drawing Legionnaires in despite of the lack of time. 
Hope you Legion fans like my art. Long Live the Legion!

Sunday, January 21, 2018


Alaktor was rejected from the Legion of Super Heroes. He secretly tried to take them down, but his plan backfired and he lost. The BG was made by Raphael Lacoste, I've added some elements.
I've tough he was a hero, by the time I've found he was a villain I was almost done with the piece so I've decided to finish it anyway...

Friday, January 19, 2018


April Dumaka, alias Catspaw was from the Glorithverse. Catspaw is a human and feline hybrid, she has the agility, speed and heightened senses (smelling, hearing and balance) of a cat, as well as retractable claws on her fingers and toes. She also has excellent night vision and animal like instincts.
I think the BG is from a furniture place believe or not, of course I've added some details to make it more Legionnaire like. Long live the Legion...

Radiation Roy

After Roy Travich received a large inheritance, used it to gain a super power to join The Legion of Super Heroes. He couldn't control his power and got rejected then became a super-villain.
The BG credits are by As_100, that's all the info I could find.  
More Legionnaires coming up in the future...future get it.

Shadow Woman

Shadow Woman from the Adult Legionnaires. She died saving the Science Asteroid. The only reference I had was that Adventure Comics cover where Superman is walking between the dead Legionnaires shrine in the future...of the future...The BG was made by Joakim Olofssom, I've changed a few minor things here and there.
I've been super busy with many things at once, unfortunately that takes time away from my Legion fun. But worry not Legion fans, I'll keep em' coming one way or another.

11 my eleventh painting. I should start looking for a gallery to do a solo show soon.
This is not a photo or photo collage or a photo that I've painted over.
Yes, this is painted from zero. I did copy elements from different image reference but it is painted.
It took me a loooong time to achieve this goal of photo realism.
Since you can manipulate images with photoshop very well, it gives me the tools to reach my goal of photo realism. I've smudge, airbrush and used the blur tool a lot.
Some parts I've spent more time trying to make it look more photographic than other parts. The woman's face was based on a model reference. The BG was very time consuming as well, but it was fun painting purple clouds.
Another painting ready for my future gallery.
Hope you like it!

Estimate Lad

Estimate Lad, one of the top five Legion rejects. He is an alien that can instantly estimate weights, measures, speeds and numbers, But he lacks accuracy. Clearly he got rejected by The Legion of Super Heroes. The BG was made by the concept artist Charivari.
Worry not Legion fans, I'll get to Legion members eventually once I free up from crazy life events.
Until then, cheers...

Mentalla was a telepathic woman from Titan that wanted to use her powers as a member of the Legion of Super Heroes. Instead asked to train in the Legion Academy. She believed she could infiltrate the Fatal Five to prove her worth to the Legion. Instead, she found her death.
I took some liberties and redesign little things here and there. The whole point of this ongoing Legion designs, is to have fun doing whatever I want, sometimes the actual design it's not that esthetic to my taste. The BG is stock art from a website. Too bad this character is dead, it had potential.

Wonder Woman vs Cheetah

By combining two of my old drawings and retouching them up a little I've came up with a new one :)
The Wonder Woman movie it's great. Finally DC comics makes a good super hero movie that stands up to Marvel's standards. It's everything I've always wanted to see in a Wonder Woman movie since I reed her comics as a child. Is entertaining, exciting and it has a lot of heart. Well done Patty Jenkins.
I hope DC and specially Warner Brothers executives learn from this experience and keep making good super hero movies like this one. That would be great!

Memorial Day

Sgt Rock and other soldiers I did for a Justice League episode. Here's my little tribute to Memorial Day.

Saturn Dance

Here is my painting number 10, Saturn Dance. The body was based on many photo references, same on the mechanical parts. They were based on different images I've found on Pinterest. I've changed them a lot to match my painting. The face was inspired by my friend Aradia, but clearly was made more mechanical to match the robotic look. She is a mystical belly dancer priestess after all, it seemed the perfect inspiration for this painting. The BG, like most my latest backgrounds it's a bit blurry to create depth. This one it's an example of what I was talking about in my previous posts about not making my paintings so photo realistic to the point some folks won't believe me that I've painted it form scratch myself. This was also printed on a canvas and texturized with some color. Like on the white bottom part, the actual canvas has a lot of texture, it creates a very different feel to it once you see it in front of you. I'm pretty happy with it, hope you like it too.
One more painting to go and gallery then.

Winds of Change

Another digital painting then printed on a canvas and then texturized with gel and some color.
Same as my previous post. It's not a photo or photo collage or a photo that I've painted over. Yes, this is painted from scratch. I did copied elements from different image reference but it is painted. It took me a loooong time to achieve this goal of photo realism.
Since you can manipulate images with photoshop very well, it gives me the tools to reach my goal of photo realism. Some parts I've spent more time trying to make it look more photographic than others. The woman's face was totally made up from different models, the body was based on a friend of mines photo that was gifted to me, I've changed it a lot to blend it better with the whole picture. The BG was very time consuming as well. I feel kind of bad by making it blurry to create that photo realism look but I think it works and gives it depth.
This was printed on a canvas and texturized as well. Another painting ready for my future gallery. 

Gaelic Princess

Gealic Princess it's a piece I've been working on for a long time now. You can see the unfinished version on my earlier posts. I've left it unfinished a long time ago and recently got to it. Here is the final version.
It takes a very long time to make something very photo realistic. I think I've spend too long in Photoshop using the airbrush and smudge tools along with texturizing and blurring things, the photo realism it's too much. To the point some folks don't believe me that I've painted this and they think it's a photo collage or that I've painted over a photo. That kind of bothers me since I've spent a looong time trying to make it look photo realistic. Yes I copied elements from different photo reference images but I didn't paint over them or photo-collaged it. A great artist friend of mine said, well...if you want to make it photo realistic and you achieve your goal don't complaint about people not believing you it's not a photo. 
He has a point. 
I think now that I have reached my goal in photo realism I might try a different style in my next paintings. A style where is less photo realistic and folks can easily see it's painted and not so photo looking so they won't be confused.
This digital painting it's being printed on a canvas gicle style, after that I'll paint over with acrylic and then texturize it.
I have only one painting left to do and then I'll have to look for a gallery that wants to showcase my art.
Until then have a good one folks, hope you like my original art.

Le Sirene

Pencil by Cassegrain clean up and color moi. 
I saw this amazing rough sketch by Didier Cassegrain and I've decided to finish it. 
I truly wish I knew the artist who painted this BG. Please tell me if you know.
An artistic Mermaid team work piece popped out from my studio on this Saturday night.
Hope you folks like it and are having a great week-end!
Au Revoir

Brita An'nan is a native of the planet Sklar, a matriarchical society where "piracy" is common. She is also known as Kono. Her mother, a "pirate" saved the life of the mother of the White Witch. In return she was granted her powers. She has the ability to transfer the mass of one object to another, making objects heavier or lighter, or even allowing her to phase through walls. She join the Legion and became Kono.
This is the only other "pirate" related Legion character I can think of. Since Pirates of the Caribbean opens today, here is my piraty tribute fan art.
The BG it's a wallpaper. I wish I knew the artist's name so I can give the proper credit for it.
I think her large feral pet Furball it's next...

Captain Frake

Alisia Frake of New Tortuga, growing up amidst the poverty and lawlessness of New Tortuga led Alisia into the most common profession of the asteroid world...piracy. Quickly gaining a reputation for her ruthlessness, she manned the pirate ship "Antares" with cutthroats and led a successful pirating career until she crossed the path of Ultra Boy, who was floating through space after being killed by Pulsar Stargrave. Captain Frake fell for Ultra Boy, but he turned against her when the Legionnaires arrived on New Tortuga to arrest the pirates. Captain Frake and her crew were killed when the blast from a weapon called the Star Crusher ricochetted of Ultra Boy.
Since Pirates of the Caribbean, Dead Men Tell No Tells opens today, this was the perfect post for the day. I took some liberties in redesigning the character slightly, for the most part I was faithful to the comics. Well, here is your Legion pirate booty...
And now matey, yo ho ho and a bottle of rum for me, arrr...

Son Goku Super Saiyan God Blue

My version of Goku in Super Saiyan God Blue. I've been keeping up with my Dragon Ball Super. Season five it's been great so far, can't wait until is translated in english and air in the states too.
I love drawing Dragon Ball Super. Let's start the week like a Super Saiyan facing life fearlessly with courage. Dragon Ball makes me happy, may strength and courage be with you through life. Have a good week folks!

Sensor Girl

Princess Projectra is a member of the royal family of the planet Orando and has the innate ability to cast powerful illusions, As Sensor Girl, she is a long time member of the Legion of Super Heroes.
Girls and their selfies, even in the future they take selfies. Specially a famous princess superhero.
The BG was based on a design by Irena Seirski, I've added the Legion tower on the back as her bedroom view. On a personal note, I got too much going on at once in my private life, I apologize to the fans if I don't post a Legion piece as often. But I'll do my best to draw a Legionnaire here and there.

Friday, April 21, 2017


Sonar was a prospective member of the Legion of Super Heroes, but was rejected. She had the ability to hear very well underwater. She was a bit overweight, so she did a 90 days transformational work out and ended up looking like this. Sorry, but I enjoy drawing beautiful fit women only, it's my thing. Long Live the Legion!

Policy Pam

Policy Pam is a superhero / insurance salesperson from the 31st Century. She has the power to sell any type of insurance policy to anyone and compulsively does with people she meets.
I think she trained with Polar Boy. Some characters powers from the Legion Universe are way beyond ridiculous, like this one. 
The BG needed a little work, I got it from google images. I have no idea who made it, I believe you can purchase the 3D model and it's royalty free.
Long Live the Legion!

Thursday, March 30, 2017


Dev-Em, youth from the planet Krypton who was on his way to becoming a criminal but eventually reformed. He is also one of Krypton's only survivors of it's destruction. He is a member of the Interstellar Counter Intelligence Corps and ally to the Legion of Super Heroes.
The BG is a wall paper from an alien landscape wallpapers website, don't really know who's the autor.
This one took me some time. No matter what I did, I wasn't happy with it. I did many passes to get it to this point where I'm ok with it. I've tried some different shadowing that resembled the original costume design. I've also added new little touches here and there. I thought the original design was kind of plain and needed something extra. 
Hope you like it.

Thursday, March 23, 2017


Virus was a prospective member of the Legion of Super Heroes, but she was rejected. She had poor control over her ability to cause others to be sick. Obviously her powers are causing others to be sick.
The BG is from Pixel Lab, was made by Remco. Nice website where they have free C4D 3D models.
Stay in good health, take your vitamins and mineral. Don't get any viruses, keep that inmune system high. Til' next time folks.

Wednesday, March 22, 2017


Ringtoss is a student at the Legion Academy. He is an alien with the ability to project rings of energy.
I guess the Legion Academy was renamed the United Planets Military Academy at that time.
For those who doesn't know, this is part of the Legion of Super Heroes in the 30th Century at the DC Comics Universe.
The BG is from Tyler Mcintosh.
More Legionnaires coming up...
