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!!

Drawing Thor

Drawing Thor was very enjoyable to me. One of the greatest, most amazing things about the process of drawing is the coloring. Weather your election is black and white photography or a combination of both; black and white with color; its amazing when a piece of art develops into realism. You can touch it, you can see it from a distance, you can analyze it and question it. The curiosity is there. How does an artist put together all the important elements from a photograph into paper?

It is an art form that some of us have that we as artists have learned to improve upon as a gift. It’s something so valuable that transmits joy and happiness to the world. It is a beautiful feeling when you see a photo of your favorite artist, musician or superhero and you want to transform it into a drawing. It is a very similar process to when someone poses for you; when someone can transfer from real life to realism in art.

Its amazing what a color pencil and paper can do. Applying the color and shading is a beautiful thing. The drawing is a step; the coloring is a giant leap.

Thor : Fan Art / The God of Thunder’s lightning strike and future Avenger Chris Hemsworth

Thor's 1st lightning strike!

I know its been a long wait for some of you art fans out there; but it’s great to be back into the mode of art. Here he is!! The Mighty Thor makes it’s appearance for you enjoy.

Thor's 2nd lightning strike!

As of right now I’m calling the steps “Lightning Strikes”!! Yes; what a title for each one. Not yet complete, but felt a good teaser would be great for the moment!

Thor's 3rd lightning strike!

The face was the initial Lightning strike as it set the tone for the rest of the piece.

Thor's 4th lightning strike

The arm included a lot of detail as I had to used careful measurements to make every piece of the puzzle accurate. It was quite an enjoyable task.

Thor's 5th lightning strike!

Note that the arm and the chest piece gives it a kind of a 3-d appearance to distinguish the two different parts of the body.

Thor's 6th lightning strike!

As I continue to work in each area, I also worked on the black background. As of right now I have used ten black color pencils. They are all Prismacolor as well as different tones of gray. Final piece coming up soon!! Stay tuned!!

Thor's 7th lightning strike!

Putting in the final touches.

I believe I used a total of twenty two black color pencils. Quite possibly my second drawing with the most dark background. A very enjoyable drawing to put together. Of course the touches of gray gives it that shiny black and white look. What do you think art fans? Does “Thor” measure up to the artistic look of either “Iron Man” or the “Joker”?

Thor's 8th lightning strike!

Before completing the final lightning strike I decided to take one more photograph before completion. The contrast I think its quite striking and the red cape gives it a more domineering display. Once I completed it I ran across to one of the most challenging tasks; “The Letters”. What to say and what to put together? I decided to keep it within the Spanish theme. Marvel, comic books and movies are universal; so the decision came to keep it within the beauty of the Spanish language.

THOR / COURAGE NEVER DIES

The final piece is complete for you Art fans to enjoy. Of course you aficionados know the movie release was May of this year (No; that has nothing to do with Mayo) and putting the release date on top displays a more powerful glance. The movie motto was “COURAGE IS IMMORTAL.” I think “EL VALOR NUNCA MUERE” (COURAGE NEVER DIES) demonstrates a more of a role model to everyday life’s motivation.
