Goobus is my very first and favorite original story. This is about a universal war between two sides: the Grand Union and the Divine Empire. The Grand Union fights for peace, freedom, and for existence. The Divine Empire fights for conquest, power, and the destruction of all who oppose them and deny the divinity of their All-Powerful God, Labeck.
GLOB is the first superhero series I created. GLOB is a mysterious shape-shifting being that landed on Earth in 1990. He was found and raised by a group of scientists to become the Perfect Being. They were murdered in 1996 by mad US General Krade and his secret military branch called the Clad Star. After killing many of the soldiers, GLOB escaped and lives in Los Angeles as its new hero. Seeking to discover his true purpose in life, he fights crime on a daily basis, volunteers in charities and noble activities in many disguises to help people in need, and restores faith in God and humanity to those who are hopeless. But he is also on the hunt for Krade to avenge his family of scientists, including his "father". Virtuous, religious, but also questionably brutal to the Clad Star, GLOB is unlike any other superhero you have ever seen. He will face ghosts, psychopaths, monsters, androids, aliens, dinosaurs, and demons before he finally finds out who he really is and why he exists.
Dinosaur Heroes 2012
Seven scientists sought to do the impossible and create something that would change everything. A time machine. They succeeded and traveled to different time periods of the Dinosaurs recording their findings. They had a great many more plans but one man's ambition changed their lives forever. In a mad experiment, he injected himself and the other six scientists with DNA of different species. As they traveled back to the present, their forms mutated and evolved into prehistoric beings. Stuck in their forms, they not only have to deal with everyday life but they must also work together to stop the madman who did this to them from recreating this event to make an army of mutants.
These six scientists will become a new breed of Heroes and face the man who has become the monster Fossil.
Calligrapher:I am the clown...
I give you, THE CALLIGRAPHER!!!
A serial killer with who uses his artistic reasons and tools on his victims in his secret lair. No one knows who he is, how old he is, or if he is even a he. He always uses different disguises to capture his victims and does it smoothly and discreetly. He is still at large and yet to be caught.
Once in an Asturian village in Medieval Spain, there was a divinely beautiful but horribly vain maiden who spent hours on end admiring herself. One day she combed her hair by the river where a spirit lived. The River Fairy punished the girl for her pride by turning her into a Cuelebre dragon. The spell would be broken only by a true knight so brave and pure-hearted he is unafraid of her and finds her beautiful. In despair she fled to a cave by the sea hiding herself from the world, clinging to the faint hope that such a man exists who will love her so.
Once again I've been away for a while but once again with good reason. I had a very productive spring semester with life drawing, storyboarding, and animation classes. I believe this was one of my best and most challenging semesters.
In Drawing Figures in Context, my life drawing skills were put to the test. The fastest we were to draw a figure was 30 seconds or a minute. The most was 2 minutes, some 5 minutes, and in a few cases 10 minutes. We were also challenged to draw with our opposite hand at one point and I discovered that I am ambidextrous! I could draw my left hand and it turns out I'm better at getting structures and figures down with my left hand. It was a fun and challenging class that I'll remember dearly. My recent submissions are actually from that class!
I was quite pumped for Storyboarding and found that not only was I good at it, I also enjoyed it a great deal! It's definitely something I would consider doing for work as well as for personal projects. Here is my Final Animatic from the class. Something I would like to make into a short film someday.
In my Animation 4 class, the final project required us to work in a group of seven and create a short film based on the story of Jack and the Beanstalk with an underwater twist. I worked on the team as an animator and voice actor. I played as the role of the bargeman. I find that I enjoy voice-acting and would like to do voice-acting for work! It seems like fun, it's something I can get into, and I've been encouraged by friends, family, and fellow art students that I should give it a shot. And you know what? I think I will!
Back to the project, while I did enjoy it I felt there was much I could learn. There were some communication issues between team members, there was a lot of pressure to finish fast and quickly. But it is what it is, we finished with a great project, and there is much for me to learn and remember from these experiences.
As for right now during the summer, I'm helping with a short film project, getting back to my own personal work, practicing voice-acting so I may create a reel, and rebuilding my portfolio.
Hope everyone is having a great summer, wishing you luck with your art, and wishing you well in life. Have an awesome summer!

Hello, my name is Richard Cardenas Jr. Ever since I was a child I have had a profound love for drawing. As I grew up I developed many stories and characters with a lot of love and dedication put into them so it became my dream to publish my works for the world to see whether they be in the form of graphic novels, comic strips, (animated) shows, or even a feature film. Now I am in the BFA Animation Program at Cal State Long Beach and I am confident that I will make it no matter what career path I choose. Family, friends, and peers have always encouraged me to follow my passion and now that I am part of the DeviantArt community, there are artists from around the world who also encourage me to make my dreams come true. I'm very thankful for the friends I have made here and the people who continue to support me throughout the years.
