Am happy that Saladin: The Animated Series has finally launched and will (hopefully) continue its 2 season run on TV :) Thanks to all for your kind and supportive words - it is much appreciated and made me feel all that hard work poured into the work was truly and well worth it :)
(and to dissenting and disgruntled voices: Haters be be pointing and talking and hating, but WE'LL KEEP ON GOING AND PROGRESSING. BOOYAAAAH XDDD)
My super lovely friends gave me a gorgeous watercolour moleskine for my birthday last year. And being the 'tard that I am, I was afraid to draw in it for fear of sullying the beautiful, pristine pages! But having ridden on a euphoria post Saladin TV debut I threw all cautions out of the window and went for it. This is the result! Thank you beautiful friends you know who you all are :)
I am so horribly loss for words now that I'm just copy pasting straight from my deviantart post XD
This is the show that I assistant-directored (pre-production team) in for the past 3 years (more like 2 1/2 years, was a storyboard artist in the first half year) and now it's FINALLY OUT ON TV! I'm so excited because we had a really great team working on this - so hopefully we'll get a good reception to the show. Catch it on TV1 at 7.30 pm on Saturdays, and if you miss that repeats are on Sundays, 9.30 am. Tell your kids, friends, wives, girlfriends, mothers, fathers, in-laws, neighbours, pizza delivery men, grocers, makcik nasi lemak, EVERYONE! Spread the love!
You might want to check out some of the wonderful people who worked on the show because once you see their works, you know this show is gonna be LE AWESOMEEEEE!!
These are approved Artist Proof cards for Iron Man II sketch card set. These two are also somewhat special because they've gotten the 'boob slap' - I have to amend the drawings because they had shown too much boobage XD XD Oops!
Received word that I'm finally able to show this to the public so here it is! All 150 cards done for this set from Rittenhouse. The funny thing is that I thought I've only 149 cards in the mail, but when I counted these scanned babies there's 150 after all! Maybe there's a double somewhere in there. Have fun looking for it..hehe :)
Return card for 5finity's Female Persuasion set, featuring the awesome Nara Kilday from the awesome Josh Howard's comic Dead@17. This card is also featured on 5finity's main page: http://5finity.com/ (scroll down a bit further)
I did a couple of tribute cards in the Treasure Chest & Booty set for the late Pat Carlucci (http://patcarlucci.deviantart.com/). These cards will be auctioned on eBay and the proceeds shall go to his family.
The client requested Guinevere, wife of King Arthur of Camelot. Colouring looks a bit blotchy due to the paper texture. I tried to give it some pencil colour finishing to make it less blotchy.. not sure if it works though, hehe.
Worked on The Pro sketch card set from 5finity (http://www.5finity.com/Coming_Soon.html). The Pro is a comic written by Garth Ennis, penciled and inked by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti respectively. It is also one heck of a crazy read. I mean REALLY. I read it again before working on this set to refresh my memory on the character and HOLY CRAPOLA. XDDD You guys should check it out anyways. And Amanda Conner's artwork's super sweet!
The above featured characters are the Knight and the Squire from the comic! They're extremely friendly in that way, methinks :3
This is one of those time when you spend hours on one artwork and end up hating it!! This feels all sort of wrong to me, and it's not quite in a good place. Maybe I gotta start all over again! Ugh.
Hit-Girl is awesome though. Kick-Ass is so cool (both movie and comic). It is, for lack of better words, truly kickass. (wow can you just feel the verbal originality oozing from me right now? I need to lie down T__T)
This is from 5finity's Pinups and Puppies series! Seen here (2nd pic) is a beagles puppy, which is my favourite one of the lot :3
Been working on lots of sketchcard gigs so all I'm going to post here for the coming weeks are gonna be sketchcards previews.. so bear with me folks XD I'm also on Breygent's Cartoon Sketch series (featuring Mighty Mouse, Felix the Cat, Betty Boop and Casper the friendly ghost), Sci-fi and Horror set (The Brain That Lives! Dracula's Daughter.. Dracula's DOG!!) and a few more really exciting ones. So keep a lookout on this space here :3
Haven't drawn these two for quite a while :3 Trying to find a pose where Octogirl doesn't look too underdressed (LOL) but it's hard when all she has is an octopus on her head and little else. Wonder what they may be gossiping about?
I asked friends on Facebook recently on stuff to draw because I'm experiencing a huge artist block. And they came up with some pretty cool and weird ideas. This one is 'How your cat tricked you to get food'.
The rest are:
1. Onion and Peanuts
2. A really good looking doner in a bun (??!!)
3. Hobbits in Malaysia
4. Blue Avatar in Nickelodeon's Avatar setting
5. Naruto (lol)
6. Someone had the gall to post 'Use your imagination' when I had specifically asked for a subject (seriously guys is that so hard?? :PPP) so I'm gonna take this literally and draw something based on that XD
So keep a lookout on this space for the rest in the list!
Was tinkering around the PC and found this old thing I did for Chipsmore cookies via an agency like.. 3 years ago. This version was after 1 client's revision (which is to saturate the colour to make it all bright and sassy! Especially the brand's colours!)
I don't know when I'll be colouring this... huk huk... T___T
This is a pretty dinky product of my extreme boredom (my level of boredom is like super boredom beyond the realm of usual boredom magnified by 100). I sometimes dream of octopus, they're fun. The other night I dream of a chicken that walked after it was cooked - that was freaky. Anyways the heart (if you can see it, cuddled by the octopus' tentacles) symbolized the idea that I can't live without dreams and fantasy. It's the thing that fuels me day by day, that things can be beyond what they are.
Argh! I made a 100-post resolution for 2009, but was short by 1 (so close, yet ..so.. far!) 99 post in all. Grrr. In that case I'll make a resolution to post 151 artworks in 2010, so if I'm short by one, I'll still have 150.
