El Chapulin Colorado Vs. Superman..My first digital work





Ok, so im excited to post this...Its my first digital painting..I think I can call it that..lol, it was a combination of sketching, Photoshop, Cobalt, Poser, and Illustrator..I think thats all I used..Its mostly photoshop work tho...It falls into the pop art work that ive been working on..Im tryin to have a decent enough body of work in that theme before I move on to something else...and to be honest theres alot more ideas...haha..Its like if im doin everything I wanted to do wen I was a little kid!!
I used to diligently collect x-men cards...I saved up all my dinero..aka mula to buy these cards.!! and my absolute favorite were the ones titled: Wolverines greatest battles!! they was sick!!! Wolverine would appear fighting, the hulk, spiderman, abviously sabretooth, etc..they were the best thing life had to offer me at my age..still is actually haha with the excetion of guess who?...jajaj Mr. Red Grasshopper!!!
EL CHAPULIN COLORADO, Ay wey...wey ay...With his pastillas de chiquitolina...he used to crack me up..anyways this piece titled: Culture Clash represents my mind my inner battle of being mexican american...which is better?...why how?..are they that different..so in this peice its my inner thoughts being released in the only way i know how...my version of an ultra fleer comic card...El chpulin colorado vs Superman the man of steel...americas favorite hero...a clash till the death?..
you guys should read the back side of the card and tell me what you think of the story..how would you cahnge the outcome?..or would you?...feedback would be appreciated fellas..n ladiiies!!!
nothing is set on stone..im still working on modyfin the story line!!
hope you enjoy me art!!

I turned into the paisa Bob Ross...jaja its not the first time a mexican does this tho..you guys eva heard of Eugenio Derbez...hahaha from derbez en cuando...classic...ANYWAYS.. I decided to accept the invitation and paint for children!!!!

It was an awesome experience!! It was my first time doin such a thing and it was fun!! although I'll tell you what..what...lol jk The kids where a tough crowd for a little bit, but for the most part their excitement made it worth while!!! So i posted sum pics of me painting for da little humans :)

Aww man I bet I sounded like Senor Bob Ross...I was like ...lets paint a happy little space monkey that flies around in space...lol Oooooh, that is a happy mistake...the monkey likes bananas?..lets paint him a banana..lol haha actually it was alot more fun painting and talkin at the same time..not like at home..maybe I should apply this strategy when I paint alone at home!! jaja ay wey!!
