Fall Life Drawing

I've finally updated, and uploaded some new life drawings. Things have been busy since school started. I'm currently working on my final film, and oh my electives are keeping me busy. I'm taking a break from my 12 pg essay (not including works cited) for my elective to post this.

For my life drawings, I think the way I'm drawing has changed. Hopefully with my drawings now I can achieve more nuance and design in my drawings, not matter which model I am drawing. I also am enjoying what we're learning in regards to light, and shadow. I look forward to applying what I am learning in life drawing to my own paintings when I have some spare time.

(just trying out a different way of drawing)

I'm slowly updating my page. I added some new links too! :)

Kuchiki Byakuya

One of my most recent digital artworks from this summer. It is the character Byakuya from the anime/manga series Bleach. I created this as a new print for this summer's convention season.

I learned alot from working on this one. And I used Photoshop and Painter for this.

I look forward to uploading some more art from this summer very soon.

If anybody is going to FanExpo this coming weekend August 22-24, do come visit Kevin and I at table A87 in the Artist Alley / Independent Press area! We're busy preparing for it this week. So it should be exciting! We'll have poster prints, postcards, buttons, and charms on sale. So come have a look =)!!

See everybody soon!

ImagineFX #27 + Portfolio

This past month has been a very busy and eventful one for me! For one, some of my digital artworks and a short interview with me is featured in the digital art magazine ImagineFX issue #27! This issue has a feature on manga art, so I am happy my artwork is able to be shown in this particular issue. One of my enjoyed art styles to create works in is of a manga/anime influence.

This issue has already been released in the UK (United Kingdom) for a month so far but should be out here in stores in Canada and USA now. So do check it out in your local Chapters or bookstore!

In other good news, I have been busy creating new artworks and designs specially for my portfolio. You may visit my online portfolio and view my demo reel here at this link:

For us 3rd years, we are currently applying for internships for this summer, so I figured this would be a good opportunity to create new artworks and push my design and colour work further in my portfolio.

For this portfolio, since it is very self-directed, I wanted to create works that reflect subjects I am interested in as well as show my technical skill. And of course, create artworks I would have fun making.

Fashion piques my interest. I had an enjoyable time designing and illustrating each girl in this set of 6.

Mermaids have always been a favourite pastime for me to draw. i love how gesture, elegance, and flow can be expressed in the figure of a mermaid design. Hence the creation of this set. I enjoyed working with colours in this one.

Here are some girl concept designs for my 4th year film pre-production in progress. I wanted to play with different shapes and types of personalities conveyed.

I have always been interested and drawn to the hanbok, a Korean traditional dress. I love the colours and look of it, so I took this opportunity to be able to draw it here.

And something much more different. Still working with shapes in the design, but also trying to incorporate some graphic elements in the background to compliment the character. I am inspired by artists that do this really well and are able to add more information to their character with this approach.

Creating this portfolio has been a great experience for me. From planning, researching, executing, and putting it altogether to the final pieces in the portfolio and demo reel.

Winter 2007 Life Drawings

I have been working on my portfolio for co-op internship for the past while. Here's a small preview for now of some of the new artwork/designs I have been working on. There's alot more. I will post more of them in an upcoming post soon.

And here are some of my life drawings from this past semester. I have been working on designing the figure as well as trying to caricature my drawings from life more. It's pretty challenging but really rewarding when the drawings turn out~
