Sometimes you need tape to cover a death button...

12/24/16

Hi guys, it's been awhile. I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Man, we have about five long months before GOTG Volume 2 comes out and I can't wait!

Here's a little design I did in reference to the trailer. You can also find it on a tshirt at TeePublic: https://www.teepublic.com/t-shirt/986821-got-tape

Cheers!

Photoshop study

12/9/2016

So I'm currently doing some painting studies with Photoshop using Blizzard character sheets. It's been a challenging study (I'm not sure this is the way I want to render things). Not sure what brushes I've used, keeping separate layers for later edits, inking; all sorts of problems to solve. But one thing for sure, I did learn and hopefully I'll get better.

Any how, here's my rendering for #overwatch #widowmaker.

Rock and Roll!

10/28/16
Woah! It's been a long time since I posted anything for this project! Sorry for the long wait.
Here's the final illustration to a tribute to Roll!




9/1/16

Yes! September is here! Which means cooler weather! Hooah!

As you can guess, I do not like the heat (lol). So here's an update on the #Roll project. Master bots liking better. Just need to work on #bubbleman next.


8/29/16

Worked on adding some #masterrobots into the piece. Always thought #Gutsman having the most unique design among the bosses. It may be a surprise to some of you, but I've only played Mega Man 2 out of all the series. Good times.



8/28/16

Well #Roll is pretty much done! I must say, I am please how she's looking. There may be a few more tweaks during the completion of the picture, but now it's time to focus on Roll's makeshift "chair."


 
8/26/16

Hi guys! Got back from my part-time job and I'm exhausted. Was able to do some work tonight on Roll. She's coming along I must say, but still got awhile before I'm satisfied with her rendering.



8/25/16

New project I'm working. #Capcom #MegaMan's (or #RockMan depending what country) sister #Roll is the subject of my next illustration.

She's definitely going to cleanup town!

The Time for Recess is Now!

6/16/2016

This is lesson to be learn for all artists. Was working late on this project and was very tired. Something about the image was not working, but I couldn't figured it out. This morning, it dawn on me that TJ lacked the viewer's focus because there wasn't enough contrast. Simple solution, reverse the order of the rising sun stripes to have more darker color surrounding his head.

 Disney's Recess propaganda poster. Show your support to the 4th grade!

New project I'm working on. Trying to do Disney's Recess in a propaganda style poster.





Exercise of the day (more Ghostbusters!)

6/14/2016

Been looking for Ecto Coolers in stores all day with little to show for it. Sigh.

RIP Egon, RIP.

Exercise of the day (Ghostbusters!)

6/12/2016

Went to the grocery store in hopes to pickup some Ecto Coolers. Sadly, they didn't have any in stock.

Anyhow today I was trying to draw Dr. Ray Palmer Jr. from "the" Ghostbusters.

Exercise of the day (Sulu)

6/10/2016

Mr. Sulu never set his phaser to stun, but on fabulous!

I find it ironic that I have difficulty drawing an Asian despite the face I am Asian.

It's... El Diablo

6/8/2016

Disney's Recess was a late discovery of mine. A fun and clever show about kids at school mixed in with a bit of Hogan's Heroes. One of my favorite episodes was called Dodgeball City, a homage to Spaghetti Western so I decided to a poster in that style.

Special thanks to Samuel Kirk for the write up.

Exercise of the day (Evil Mr. Spock)

6/5/2016

I wanted to draw a female character, but found I had some difficulty drawing her. Didn't want to hide my deficiency; this is about showing personal development and how I need to improve. Needless to say it was more than 20min.

Afterwards, I decide to draw mirror universe Mr. Spock which was a lot of fun.

Exercise of the day (Ogre - Revenge of the Nerds)

6/4/2016

NERRRDS!!!

One of my favorite cult movies, #TheRevengeoftheNerds and the actor who played Orge was hilarious.

Strange Tales of Science

6/3/2016

#DextersLaboratory in a pulp fiction style cover. I had completed this image about a year ago, but due to circumstances I could publish it.


Exercise of the day (Sean Bean)

6/3/2016

Contrary to popular belief, #SeanBean does not die in every movie/tv series. The image is Bean's role as Richard Sharp of the TV series "Sharp's Rifles." A popular British show taking place during the Napoleonic Wars, Bean stars as the leading role and DOES NOT DIE.

Exercise of the day (Dr. Evil)

6/2/2016

Exercise of the day! #Dr.Evil from #AustinPowers. Gotta love an evil genius that demands sharks with lazer beams on top of their heads.

The Engine of our Destruction!

5/31/2015

Hi guys. This was a project I completed last year without posting. Love the insanity of #Invaderzim so what if this show was shown in the 50s?


Exercise of the day (Herman Munster)

5/31/2016

I grew up watching the #themunsters as a kid. When I was young, I was afraid of the classic monsters (vampires, werewolves, etc). But The Munsters helped me realize the monsters can be cool and friendly. Thanks Herman!

Exercise of the day (Curly Howard and SGT Lincoln Osiris)

5/30/2016

Hey guys. Here are my exercise for the 2-days.

Did one for Curly Howard today, but didn't do the 5min drill. Been a long day and too tired. Too tired to draw you say? "Why Soitenly!"

The bottom drawing was done yesterday of Robert Downey in Tropic Thunder. "I'm the dude playin the dude disguised as another dude..."

Starting new exercise

5/28/2016

Hi guys! So starting today I'm trying something new. Everyday I want to post a drawing exercise. I'm hoping it will help my drawing skills and as well as my observation skills. We'll see what happens. Lately, I've been listen to a lot of Captain America First Avenger OST so I figured I'd use Cap as my first exercise.

The way it works is that I give myself 20mins, then draw the image again at 10mins, and final at 5mins. The purpose to to capture the essentials of the image and not waste and line strokes.

Thanks for you support guys!

Time to move forward

5/25/2016

Hi guys. It's been awhile. Sorry I haven't posted anything for awhile, but I have been going a lot for the past months. I've been demoralized for a period of time, but I've come to terms with it and going to move forward.

I've been doing some drawing exploration for "The Philosopher's Engine". I think I want to redesign Tetra for this project.

What do you guys think?

Thanks again for your support!

Legends of the Goddess

2/28/2016

Hi guys. Well, here it is. Finally! The finished illustration I've been working for #herocomplexgallery #zelda30thanniversary art show! Check out other artists' works of #Zelda at HCG's website at: http://hcgart.com

So the story of this image is that it's a parody of Nintendo's 25th Anniversary illustration where we had all the Links of the franchise up to that point. There's also another joke to my image; why name a franchise where the hero's name isn't Zelda? I'm mean, it really is about Link, right? Lol. Anyhow, Happy 30th Anniversary Zelda! Can't wait for #TwilightprincessHD and #zeldawiiu!
