Hannah Mermaid

From the same Super Hero project that never was...yet, here is Hannah Mermaid. Not only I'm proud to call her a friend, Hannah is a professional underwater mermaid, creating her own functional mermaid tails. She is also a dedicated Ocean activist, she travels the planet performing for charity projects to commercial ventures to bring awareness to the ocean and it's animal life. She has done many movies and shoots swimming in the open ocean with sharks, dolphins, whales, manta rays and more. Check out her website if you wish to hire her talent.
Her powers are all mermaid ancient wisdom and magic. She protects the oceans and sea life on the planet.
I'm so proud of you Hannah, it was great working on your character with you, love ya!

Here is the one of three pieces from a freelance project that was truly free. Probably a good reminder why I've stopped doing freebies. The project never got an official name, the premises where Captain Planet meets Power Rangers but with a contemporary burner/conscious edge. Originally based on Shawn Barry's idea (
We had a meeting at a Talent Agency (very formal) with a few friends. It had and still has potential for either a TV show or a live performing show. What it got me exited was the idea of having a TV show where we switch from live action to animation within the same universe back and forth per episode. Of course that would be a very hight budget since animation it's not cheap, and of course whoever would produce this potential show would prefer know experience and stablished actors instead of experienced performers/models/artists. Based on everyone's experience involved on this project it would make more sense to do a live show like Marvel Live
The project was put on hold for now. I'm sure whatever free art came out of my excitement could still be used for presentation and pitching purposes in the future. It was a good experience to work with friends outside The Simpsons universe.
For the record I'm not taken orders, doing any commission work or adding any more drawings to my list of things to do. Sorry folks, I'm a busy man, nothing personal.
This character, Dove, was based on Alicia Marie. She is an incredible aerialist who performed with Motley Crue and the Lucent Dossier Experience just to name a few. She helped me co-create the background for this character. Her powers: Flight, can change her size to a faerie and fast speed. She protects the air and skies.
I truly hope this brilliant project gets picked up someday.

Guru Laghima

Guru Laghima was an Air Nomad and renowned poet who lived at the Northern Air Temple around 3,829 BG. It's from the Legend of Korra television series. In Book 3 (season three) a new villain named Zaheer talks about Guru Laghima and his poetry. One of his poems/quotes goes: 
Let go of your earthly tether, 
Enter the void, 
Empty and become wind. 
It is said he discovered the secret to weightlessness, which allowed him to unlock the air bending ability of flight. This essentially allowed Laghima to become untethered from the earth and lived the last forty years of his life without touching the ground.
During his lifetime, Guru Laghima became a renowned poet with writing so influential that it
survived the Hundred Year War. In his honor, a mountaintop near the Northern Air Temple known as Laghima's Peak was named after the Guru. In addition, several caves located two miles from the Northern Air Temple are adorned with statues of Laghima, along with other influential monks. Over time, however, the truth about his achievements was lost and his abilities were dismissed as children's stories and legends. I've based the BG on a background thumbnail from the Legend of Korra Book Two (season two) painted by Josh Middleton.
I went over it and changed it composition wise to match Laghima.
I've never seen this character in the show, that's why I thought it would be cool to make my own design and have fun with it. 
Hope Avatar Korra fans like it.
Peace out.
