New post


Okay okay.. I'm really sorry for being a bad blogger and not posting anything for like 2 months. To prove that I've been drawing though, I'm finally posting something I did for work. For the last couple of months, I've been drawing props for a show called Word World where characters and things are made of words like the ship I'm posting here. Last week our crew was told that the show was going to be moved to New York. I don't wanna go in to too much detail but things have been kinda all over the place for me. Since I'm not in WW any more, they moved me in to another show called Chaotic. I'm helping with character designs at the moment.

T-shirt for my sister

This is a design I did for one of my sister's birthday gift. I got it printed on a black T-shirt at Cherry Bomb on Granville. It came out really nice and my sister loved it. Oh.. and she's a florist by the way. I told her to wear it at work. Man.. why am I such a sweet ass. LOL

getting warmed up for work next week

Cowboy sketch for an exercise in Tom Bancroft's design book 'Creating Characters with Personality'. I think it's one of the best design books I've read so far.







Some more rough sketches to get ready for my new job as a designer at Bardel Entertainment next week. I'm pretty excited about this new gig.

About a week ago I came up with an idea of doing some comic strips involving mythical beasts. Here's a couple of sketches done today for griffin. I'll try to post up some more in the future.

Interesting article

Here's a link to an interesting article my bro just sent me.

Design software weakens classic drawing skills

It's so true. Nothing beats good old pencil on paper.
Sorry for the lack of new posts with pictures btw... :(
I'm on my last week of Betty. Horray!

Lifedrawing











I'm trying to update my portfolio because I haven't for the last
two years. What's frustrating is that I don't have much new stuff
to add. :(
This is one of my reasons for opening up this blog. So I can keep
pushing myself to do draw more and be motivated by other artists.
These are lifedrawings that I did back when I was still in school.
I'm going to try lifedrawing again once I finish my 2nd season of Betty.
Anybody interested in going to the zoo with me?!!?!

My first storyboard gig




Here are some of the first few pages of a storyboard I did last year for Warner Bros. After finishing the first season of Atomic Betty, I got a chance to do my first storyboard at Atomic since graduating from school. I was pretty nervous because not only it was my first storyboard gig, but because I haven't really practiced drawing since I was always busy animating in Flash. I started out doing some revisions for the first three days and after I had finished all the revisions, I got to do a whole board from start to finish in three weeks. I didn't realise back then, that three weeks wasn't very much time to finish a whole board! So I had to work like crazy day and night including the weekends, and by the time I was finished, I was literally burnt out. Still, I had a great deal of FUN being able to draw again. Hopefully I'll have more chances in the future to do some more boards. Anyway, these images are a scan of a photocopy so they're not the best interms of image quality. I hope you guys can understand my storytelling. :)

another version

Just trying different things.

Ryu



Sorry for the late update folks. Here's a weekend post of Ryu! I might do something later on with Photoshop with the coloured version, but for now I think this is good enough. BTW, I'm now working on my LAST episode of Atomic Betty Season 2. I can't believe I've already been through two seasons.

basic shapes


Me and a couple of guys at work decided to do a character sketch today at work using basic shapes. The shape we used was something like this.

I coloured it at home after work using photoshop again. I'd have to say yellow and purple is one of my favourite colour combinations.
