AI 7722

 

After playing with the AI art generator Midjourney, I got inspired and that became an idea for a new piece. I painted and added lots of details with Photoshop. It doesn't really look like that original AI art anymore.

Always looking forward to learning from new tools and pushing the boundaries to new horizons with art.

Will be printed as giclée and stretched on canvas. 30"W x 40"H, will sell the giclée for $2500.

It becomes 3D when viewed with Chromadepth 3D glasses.

The price will go up after adding acrylic embellishment on canvas.

Jurassic World: Dominion

 

I’m seeing Jurassic World: Dominion tonight in IMAX.
Looks epic.
I’ve been a dinosaur fan ever since I was a kid, I used to know all their names.
Here's my two cents fan art and my Ricardo Delgado style tribute art attempt, no one draws dinosaurs like him, no one.

May 25th, 1977.

 


The original Star Wars (Episode IV) was released on May 25, 1977. The rest is history. Thank you uncle George. Happy Star Wars day...again.
This coming Friday the new Obi-Wan Kenobi show comes out, looks really good. Here're my two cents.
Today it would have been my dad's 100th birthday if he was still alive. He took me to see Star Wars for the first time back in 1977.
Also today is a National Holiday in Argentina. The May Revolution took place May 25, 1810, in Buenos Aires. It started the Argentine War of Independence.
So many special dates today.
May the force be with you...always.

Friday the 13Th on a full Alien-made Artificial Satellite night.

 

Happy Friday the 13th on a full view of the Alien-made Artificial Satellite (full moon this coming Sunday)
Some cultures, including the Ancient Egyptians, actually considered the number 13 to be lucky. While others have simply swapped numbers as the base of their phobias, triskaidekaphobia to be exact.
Like Social Distortion, Thirteen’s my lucky number.
As for the full moon, I know one day the heavily indoctrinated masses will find out the actual truth that our moon was Alien-made and brought to Earth thousands of years ago. Some folks know thou, minority so far.

Here’s my two cents tribute to that glorious Hollywood fear mongering classic flick with #jasonvoorhees

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

 

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness opens today.
I'm seeing it tonight in IMAX.
A Marvel Team-Up with Doctor Strange and Spiderman was my first Comic Book ever.
Basically, I've learned about astral projection and out-of-body experiences since I was 7 thanks to Doctor Strange, which explains a lot about me if you know me in real life.
Here are my two cents fan-art with some of my favorite Doctor Strange versions. The Defenders version, Cinematic Universe, and the masked version.
79% on Rotten Tomatoes, enough said.
The question you gotta ask yourself is...Who are you in this vast multiverse?

22nd Anniversary of Working on The Simpsons

 

Today is my 22nd year anniversary of working on The Simpsons TV show.
I've started back in April 1992 at Klasky Csupo.
Went from doing Character Layout to Character Design to Assistant Director to working on The Simpsons movie as an Aditional Sequence Director to Storyboards back on the show to Character Design again and currently.
In addition, I'm about to start working on the 34th season sometime soon.
Had a 10 year intermission somewhere in the middle and also worked at Warner Bros Animation, Cartoon Network, DC Comics, and Marvel Animation doing superhero shows. Between all of these experiences and The Simpsons, I had an amazing career.
I've learned and grown so much as an artist and as a person, I'm beyond grateful.
I look forward to continue bringing laughter to this world with my art.
Have a great weekend folks!
The best is yet to come, never stop never stopping.
Cheers

 Happy Earth Day earthlings...for now.

Earth Day began as an environmental movement in 1970. This year marks the 52nd anniversary of the widely celebrated holiday, according to EarthDay.org. Gaylord Nelson, a junior senator from Wisconsin, wanted to hold teach-ins about air and water pollution on college campuses.
Before the star in this solar system goes supernova in the future, this planet will be around for a looong time.
Cheers to many more Earth Days!

Halo

 

Master Chief from Halo.
Maybe because I've never played the video game I'm actually enjoying the TV series.
Here are my two cents.
Doctor Strange is next. 
I hate to be somewhat of a basic bitch when it comes to SciFi and Comic Book related things, like movies, tv shows, etc...
I'll draw and post whatever the trend is or what everyone else is doing. 
I gotta post more original content despite whatever the latest is. 
Maybe I'll go back to my Versus Series or even doing whatever Legionnaires I got left on my list. 
I should actually start re-designing my own SciFi Nova Star so I can pitch it already. 
Anyhow, have a good one folks.

Morbius the Living Vampire

 



Morbius the Living Vampire.
Created by Gil Kane and Roy Thomas.
It first appeared in a Spider-Man comic back in 1971.
I think the movie wasn’t that bad at all, Rotten Tomatoes was too harsh on that low percentage.
Jared Leto was the perfect casting for that roll.

Moon Knight

 

Moon Knight
The show looks good so far.
Go Marvel!
Here's my take on the character.

Nuestra Señora del Limón

 

Dedicated to my Argentinian friends...
Nuestra Señora del Limón
La Virgen de los limados.
Virgen de Limón Patrona de los Santos Limados
Gracias por el fin de semana concedido
Que nunca nos falte ni de lo uno ni de lo otro
Líbranos de las falsas amistades
Y que el ácido nos acompañe siempre
Salud!
Translation:
Virgin of Lemon Patron Saint of the Limados Saints
Thanks for the weekend granted
That we never lack neither one nor the other
Deliver us from false friendships
And may the acid always be with us
Cheers!
This is based on an Argentinian joke.
There's not such thing as a Virgin of Lemon.
Here's the page and original image I've based it on:
The expression "Limado" in Buenos Aires slang means to be crazy or high. Sounds like lima or limón hence the whole joke.
The literal translation of "Limado" means the operation consisting of removing filings from a material by means of a file or a filer.
Because of that and within the context of this slang expression, that could also mean you got your brain filed from alcohol or drugs therefore you are crazy or not in your right mind...limado.
You can also say "que lime" as in "que locura" (that's crazy)
You can tell to a person: que limado, or estas re-limado. As in you are crazy or high, depends on the situation and the context.
I don't really think any other Spanish-speaking countries would ever get this joke, it's an Argentinian thing, specifically from Buenos Aires.
I'm aware every time you explain a joke it's not funny anymore, especially in another language from another culture where the sense of humor may be very different. Regardless I thought this needed an explanation for most folks around the world.
I hope you enjoy the art nevertheless and appreciate the intention of making you laugh.
This world needs more laughter nowadays.
Cheers

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!

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

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!

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.

Reflex

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!
Cheers

Alaktor

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...
