Green Lantern - First Appearance (1940) by elfantasmo
Green Lantern - First Appearance (1940)
The original Green Lantern, Alan Scott! With The Flash there were two of the major characters rebooted and redesigned by DC in the late 50's/early 60's, before joining the JL. I was familiar with the character again for the Superfriends show, but I hardly knew about the vast mithology developed in the last decades. I didn't hate the live-action movie, there are far worse examples in that area, but it just scratches the surfaces of such rich universe.... the basic concept to create anything and the color mithology is pretty interesting.

First Appearance: All-American Comics in 1940.
The original design mas pretty simple, a guy with colorful green pants, a big size red sweater and a dracula type cape. :)

(On a side note for some reason the ring switched sides from time to time in the covers...)

Robin - First Appearance (1940) by elfantasmo
Robin - First Appearance (1940)
Robin, THE superhero sidekick. When I was a kid I knew about him for the Adam West show and the Superfriends tv show.... I had an action figure too. Many years later I discovered the whole "3 Robins" thing and their new personas Nightwing +  Red Hood and alternative history: Carrie Kelly, and recently Damian Wayne...

1st appearance: Detective Comics #38. I still wonder why they though that green short pants are a cool idea for a costume... also.. I guess lot of scratches and bleeding with 0% protection on his legs! xD ... the rest of the original design is okay, even the winged boots. another fun fact: it took me years too realize -when I started to learn english- that "robin" is not a hero name but a kind of bird... everything made sense then... haha.

Captain Marvel (a.k.a Shazam) (1940) - FA by elfantasmo
Captain Marvel (a.k.a Shazam) (1940) - FA
The only hero capable of outselling Superman back in the 40s! First appearance: Whiz Comics #2, published by Fawcett Comics. After tons of lawsuit, absorbed by DC Comics, he fell into obscurity until the 70s. I discovered him until Kingdom Come and the Shazam comicbooks painted by Alex Ross. His design has hardly changed in 70 years... in recent times he has been presented with a hood and a more ellaborated armor type of suite. (Injustice and the latest DC reboots). On a side note when I was a kid, we have here a bootlegged version of the SuperPowers toys, and they have a extra character outside the main cast of the Justice League called "Captain Ray" that somehow resembled Shazam but with a black costume...

Mandrake The Magician (1934) by elfantasmo
Mandrake The Magician (1934)
One of the biggest news paper comic strip superheroes! Originally published in black and white, he later got a more traditional comic book treatment, published on vertical pages in color for newspapers magazines and later on his own comic books. He had a huge following worldwide; he was popular here in latin america (there are some popular sayings with his name even!). My mom was a huge Mandrake fan when she was a kid; she told me that she even tried to run on the walls like him! :D I knew the character in the 80s thanks to the Defenders of The Earth animated series, but since he has faded from pop culture, with the comic strip ending his long publication run and film projects stuck in develpment hell for more than a decade...

After all these years he has not changed much in his design... well,  tuxedos have not changed in a century actually! So not much to redesign, just a little bit muted colors for these one.

Street Fighter - 3D Pixel Art by elfantasmo
Street Fighter - 3D Pixel Art
The whole Ultra Street Fighter IV cast reinterpreted as a 3D pixel art!
This is one of two illustrations that I made which are going to be featured in the CAPCOM Fighting Tribute published by :iconudoncrew:!!! in July 2015 at SDCC! They like this style so much that I was asked to send/authorize the use of an additional piece -I sent 5 different comps- so it's an honor!

(Also I finally made it, because when I learned about the Street Fighter Tribute years back then it was too late... and SF it's my favorite fighting saga!)

Made in Maya + Photoshop

Oscar Triana (a.k.a phantasmo)
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
Colombia
Oscar Fabián Triana Méndez is a filmmaker (as media says) and graphic designer born in Colombia in 1983.

Tired of hearing about big budgets, planetary alignments, white apples, and other issues that makes "impossible" to create a film, he decided to work with the only things that he always have at hand: paper, pencil, cardboard, clothes and everything than can fit in a scanner. He was awarded (twice) by the very same Lucasfilm and, for a time, he was a promising talent in his country, appearing on TV, newspapers, radio but not on the cereal. He has given lectures at different universities and film festivals in Colombia, too.

His philosophy hasn´t changed and the size of his wallet either. He lives with his family and a lot of dreams in his pages.

Hey, thanks for the watch. I really appreciate it! Are you really the guy who created the 'Star Wars in a Notebook' series though? I remember seeing your videos a while back being posted all over Tumblr. Great stuff!

That is awesome! Many congratulations with all the attention your work has received... It's very well deserved. Did you not win some sort of award by the way?

I'd actually realised after posting my first comment to you that I'm following you on Tumblr, and you're also following me back. Means a lot that someone such as yourself has noticed my work... I really appreciate it! Thank you very much :)
