Superheroes and Villains

Guardians of the Galaxy/Art prints available by Martin M. Rocha

Just saw the film last night and it was fantastic. I have never seen anything like it. I strongly recommend you watch it. It is a space action packed adventure!! It is not a comedy, but had plenty of laughs, action, drama and emotion. It actually made me cry a few times. I never heard of the Guardians before the promotion for the film began, however. It touched my heart and such misfit characters such as Groot and Rocket were so bad-ass nevertheless, they were also so sweet. I knew in my heart that the movie will be awesome and I can not wait for them to join forces with the Avengers in the 3rd installment!!

Meanwhile I just recently drew the Guardians with colored pencils. Click on my online store if you would like to buy one. PRINTS WILL ALSO BE AVAILABLE AT THIS YEAR’S WIZARD WORLD COMIC CON AT THE STEVENSON CENTER IN ROSEMONT ILLINOIS AUGUST 21st through the 24th. HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!!

THE HUNGER GAMES IN ART by Martin M. Rocha

Hungry for more? That’s exactly the feeling I’ve got when I read and saw this fascinating motion picture. It’s definitely going to be one of the movies of the year. The book was so addicting that I couldn’t put it down. Full of detail and fascinating suspense I could define it as a book that it really grabs you. The movie was every bit as good, however. It is very difficult to cover all the details that the book includes into a blockbuster film. As it defines a new meaning for an era where Harry Porter and Twilight left off, The Hunger Games picks up and takes it into a new genre. Kids and adults, males and females are fascinated by it. I was amazed by the book and film that it inspired me to transform Katniss into the world of art. With a pure tone of color pencil I am delivering one of my greatest achievements.

Superheroes and its purpose by Martin M. Rocha

What was the purpose of the invention of the superhero? I never thought of that question until they had a special on the history channel and the reason behind it.

During the period of WW II, America joined the war in 1941 and as Americans, we supported our troops to win. According to comic book experts Captain America and Superman were the first superheroes from Marvel and DC. The distribution of the comic books among American soldiers became very popular as the fictional stories became simple and enjoyable to read. Reading about the heroes’ triumphant battles against evil gave them the motivation and courage to fight.

The colors of Superman resemble those of the American Flag. The colors and image became more prominent with Captain America and the stories displayed him fighting Nazis. There you go Comic book fans!! A simple great reason of the creation of this wonderful genre!!

Today; many of us who grew up with tales of heroism remain loyal fans and I believe by reading these awesome tales you learn the difference between good and evil.

Now we are at another golden age of the Superhero genre and it’s reaching another peak with new amazing films. I decided to put this video together of my great appreciation of the Art that I enjoy doing. The three main Avengers and its process with the fantastic music of AC/DC!! Enjoy!!

In the words of Samuel Jackson who plays Nick Fury; head of Shield; “Gentlemen; you are up!!” What would be their threat? It looks like Loki will be their main enemy. Just like one of Marvel’s first Avengers edition, Thor’s brother will be the one who will probably use that “Unlimited Power”!! That force that evil will try to utilize to rule the world. The Red Skull acquired it, but failed; the Frost Giants were the ones that first used it to conquer humanity, but the Asgardians drove them back to their dimension.

Now over seventy years later Captain America awakes as a man out of touch and out of time; but thanks to Nick Fury they assemble the greatest clutch of Superheroes to confront a threat that requires teamwork and power. Value your strength, value your power because The Cap, Iron Man and Thor will lead this amazing team. On May 2012 along with the Black Widow, Hulk, Hawkeye and Nick Fury; the Avengers assemble as earth’s Mightiest heroes. What do you think Marvel aficionados? Is next year’s Avengers film going to be an incredible one?
