Final Project


Here is my latest works from my Storyboard Class. We had to do all the creation & panels for some old story of a creepy couple that ate little bad children. One of my panels is f the guy, with the little boy under the couch, waiting impatiently for the water to boil to put the boy in so as to eat when done. (like I said - creepy). So, I did this up from my pencils in Illustrator, and finally, in Photoshop CS4.

I am pretty proud of the effort; I may add more touches to it just for grins. But I need to let things go & move on to my other homework.

Hope it makes you feel a little uncomfortable; it's supposed to. (not something I enjoy doing though)

New Works


It's been a very busy & stressful Semester, esp. with all the sicknesses I've had, plus lots of homework, I have been ignoring my Blog.

I do apologize. Here is another work I did for some friends in the Congregation for a Jehovah's Witnesses International Assembly in Honolulu, Hawaii this past November. These are not extraordinary pieces, but they are fun to pass out & use as bookmarkers. They are double-sided, and I have another one. But this will suffice for now.

Enjoy.

3D On the Rise



It's been a long while, but I've definitely been busy. Got a little treat to show off - some of my 3D work in Maya! Hope you like them. Pretty much a first time shot at a complicated design. They're not finished products, but should be done in a day or so.

Thanks

Event 4 Son, Design Fun


My son has a party coming up. So, I made the Invitations. I wanted to be simple, but creative; it's a video game theme, so I took his fav stuff and mushed them all together, plus some Japanese to boot. It was fun. Way more effort went into it than I wanted, but no biggie. This was just for fun! No commercial activities involved whatsoever!

My Little 'Gundam' Warriors


Everyone who really knows me, know that I'm crazy about 'Gundam' in almost any form! Be it model, action figure, anime, poster, notebook, manga or other media - I crave it!! For some years I've been doing my own little creations. Here are two that I did as pencil, then PSD and Ai (Illustrator)it for color for the final product. Hope it inspires others.

Later

Fun Bear


There are times I really enjoy making fun of the cutest things, much like the early Warner Bros., cartoons I grew up on. My sense of humor is a little twisted, but it can be funny. Here is a little take on a lovable Teddy Bear while having his own fun, and in style, too.

New Biz Card Design


I always enjoy getting others' Business Cards, carefully examining the layout, design and color scheme. You can tell when a truly good Artist did the work. I love collecting them. I make new ones every other year; they're usually too complicated and detailed. So I am trying for simplicity (my 'simplicity' still seems too complicated for most), but still have flare. Hope this works out. Opinions?

Original Mechs


I did this one up as a combined layout of three individual pics. It was a task to make them look similar, yet as individuals, in design and function.

I displayed this as a huge poster at the Campus Student Exhibition Friday. It was loved by quite a few; the question of color is always brought up. I plan to do that later after I complete the semester. I do love this effort, and hope you do as well.

Dragon-Warrior Mech


When I'm inspired, I do complicated art. I make it so detailed that it would be a pain to redo, even once more. Here is one I'm proud of (and adding color much later). A dragon-like, samurai look with Gundam touches; add the fantasy touches and you have this masterpiece (I call it...!).

Others are trying to do this in color and maybe even 3D. I feel for them. It will ba a while before that happens. Enjoy!

Retro-Fun Shirts


Did this one as a theme for an element - promethium, a silver-white, burning metal - and combined retro skate-boarding concepts with cosmic, techno-gigs, and came up with this for a class assignment! Kinda fun doing it, but had plenty of probs using Ai on it; found out it was the Ai for my old iBook, not the Intel-based MAC I have now. And there were probs all across the board. Got better when I switched up.

Enjoy

My Class Ad Project


I have an absolute love for Vocal Trance/Trance/Techno music! And my favorite DJ and Composer is the internationally-renowned Armin Van Buuren. We had an assignment to do an Ad combining our fav Artist and chaacteristics of their style with our fav artist' styles, which is the Gundam Mech designer Hajime Katoki. So I came up with this. It was a task, but fun to put together nonetheless.

Havin' Fun



I did this for some beloved relatives originally in pencil, pen and markers. I had fun doing it, as did my beloved relatives. I always enjoyed Cartoon Network when they had Shows like 'PowerPuff Girls' and 'Samurai Jack' on it. I actually miss those a bit.

I made a few changes when I did it up in Illustrator and Photoshop, like adding gradients. I hope to put more in here soon.

Space Warriors


I did this about 2003 or so. But I have always liked it and may even add color. Until then, enjoy the sight.

Little Mechas


Hello-hello-hello! This will be where I will post a number of my art pieces. It will quickly become obvious to all that I am a strong Anime/Manga and Japanese-Mecha Fan. So, please, enjoy the works.

(And please try not to steal or copy the Images. Thanks.)

In this one, these are based off of S(uper-)D(eformed) Gundams; I like to exaggerate in my designs. Look for more to come!
