The CosmicBeholder's Cameo Piece
Some doodles and sketches inspired by public domain characters and the drawings and OCs of DA pals
:iconcaptain86: :iconcyberkitten01: :iconadekii: :icontulio19mx: and :iconxailenrath2015:
Can you name them all?

My dA Buddy, The CosmicBeholder, made an amazing sketch featuring OC's from the artist listed above. I asked if I could finish his sketch. He allowed me the privilege and this is my endeavor. Hope I honored you and your talent my friend. It was very fun to do. Thanks very much for the privilege.

Moon Girl is a Golden Age heroine who had fallen into public domain
Young Ultimate Power 1977 by Captain86
Young Ultimate Power 1977
Ultimate Power II is Earth's second hero by that name, replacing the (almost) retired
John Sunfox III. Unlike Sunfox, who was granted powers as an adult, Tony Smith was
infused with a dominate strain of DNA from Ultyma. Ultyma is the leader of the
Galactic Union of Ultimate Powers, a peace keeping force that upholds justice and order
throughout the Milky Way. As a "child of Ultyma", Tony developed amazing abilities
as he approached puberty. While on a camping trip with the scouts, Tony encountered
a UFO. Inside was a beautiful young humanoid alien named La Shar. La Shar and
John Sunfox III, the first Ultimate Power, showed Tony the true nature of his powers. As an Ultimate Power and member of the Union. Unfortunately, La Shar was killed by a
renegade Union member before his training was completed. Sunfox delayed his retirement and Tony became his side kick. Over thirty years later, Tony is Earth's go-to
superhero. He is responsible for the creation of the Super Scouts of America, The Power
Team, the Philadelphia Assault League, The Troop, and the Assault League of Heroes.
He has sought out the young super powered individuals to put them on the right track.
The Sol Sector of space (Earth) is his domain, along with five other Ultimate Powers and
John Sunfox III and his son John IV. Like other UP's, Tony has the power of flight,
ultimate speed, strength, invulnerability, particle beam vision, and ultimate will power,
which he uses to switch his powers on and off at will.
This is how he appeared in 1976 - 1978 in his original costume. The character is based on me. We're the same age, born in '64.
My Dear Friends, and Colleagues,
With an extremely heavy heart, I have sad news to relay to those who knew a
truly great individual.  Most of you were privileged to know my Brother Jean
as 58Bluemarbles when he had an account here on dA.

I'm sorry to say we all lost my Dear Brother, Jean Saturday, March 7 to injuries
sustained from an auto accident earlier in the week.  Jean was an extraordinary
soul who always placed others before himself.  He was, without doubt, the kindest,
gentlest, and compassionate man I have ever had the honor of knowing.

Jean was and artist of unique talent and vision.  It was his amazing talents that
amazed me while he was on  His love of thrillers allowed him to
create many astounding images in the realm of his favored author, Stephen King.
In fact he was a member and artist of the King Fan Club.
  Tine by 58bluemarbles  My Brother was a real family man, and humanitarian.
He loved the center of his world, his Wife, Martine, and his children; Timothy, his
Son, Debbs, his adopted daughter and Dimitri, the Son he was in the process of
adopting.  Jean was an abet animal lover.  All of nature was his friend, he volunteered at his local animal shelter for many years and cared for numerous animals on his property.  Jean loved everything that lived and breathed on this Earth.

My friend and Brother was the closest thing to a living Saint that I have ever encountered in my fifty one years.  He was always there for anyone who needed
help or advice, even many of us on this site.  He has saved more than a few lives just while on dA.  He was an amazing man, and I will miss him for the rest of my
life.  My ideas of caring and humanity have been redefined by the sincerity of his
soul.  We have lost a true hero in 58Bluemarbles, Jean.  A soul who blessed us all
with his presence, and a light who brighten the whole world.  Thank you Jean, we
all love you.

Tony Smith
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
Born Philadelphia, PA
Specialize in Graphic Illustration & Cartooning

As of this writing, I've been a 'Deviant' for almost six months.
I've toured the site and encountered some incredible pieces of
art, and some equally incredible artist. As I close on the 50 year old mark, I've never really had much use for the computer
outside of my art and finding information. I never had a 'myspace', never got into i.m.'s, or twitter. I have a 'facebook'
account, but it was for displaying my art work, and since discovering dA, I haven't had a need to go back. As far as networking on a site goes, I feel at home here. Some of the art
and their artist have inspired me to draw in ways I haven't felt
inspired since my 20's. To those I consider friends on dA. I'd
like to thank. The rest, I'd like to get to know. That said, I think
its time for me to let you know who I am.

I was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I'm
considered the last of the so-called "Baby Boomers" having been born in 1964. The 1960's were a rough year for my country, if not for the world, but, for me, its just history. I have
no memory of it out side of the 1969 moon launch. My earliest
memories are of the 70's. The close, the music, and the television, the instrument that first inspired me to art! For some
reason, the old WWII movies my Aunt watched drove me to draw planes, tanks, and ships. After that, it was shows like
Voyage the the Bottom of the Sea, Lost in Space, and my all time favorite Star Trek. Later it was the 'kid' shows I watched
after Catholic school, Johnny Sucko... The Space Giants, Ultra Man, and Captain Scarlet. After TV, this was the biggest influence on my art 'til this day...comic books and comic cartoons. The DC comic Superboy and the Legion of Superheroes was the comic that did it for me. Superman, Batman and the like were cool, but the Legion had it all. Teen aged heroes set in the far pencil was on fire.

To this day, I'm still influenced by comics, and more so the
comic artist that show their works off to the cyber world. All I've
seen are good, many I think are great, and a few have made my mouth drop! Since logging on for the first time, I've drawn
more independent pieces in these few months than I have since in school. That's because of my latest spark of inspiration,
the artist and people here on Deviant Art. I'll continue to strive for the perfection of my work, and lend a hand to those who
my need it. After all, we may have started the art thing for different season... but the art thing is what makes us who we
are. Keep the ink flowing gang!
