Just a quick doodle and a bit of messing around with photoshop, i drew the girl's legs and then took a picture of jeans from google and photoshopped the jean texture to match the drawing under it, i did the same thing for her tank top, and added a paper texture as a BG
It kinda has a neat effect so i might do something like this again
Cheers and Have a Happy New Year's everyone!

End of the titans

That's right, as of last friday class of the titans is done! yahoo!! well its not done done but i finshed my contract for painting on it, it was such an interesting 9 months, most of the people i met i knew from VFS or from other friends so it wasn't so bad.
I had alot of laughs and i met some cool talented people, i hope to return there in the new year for some animation openings but i'll keep everyone posted.
Sorry i haven't updated sooner, it was a crazy weekend and week so far since thrusday last week with lots of goodbyes and some drinking.
I thought it'd be nice to leave this post with a titans drawing, i hand colored some of jay and the BG with copic markers ( anyone know how to use them? if so please leave me some tips/advice!) its not done but i'm cleaning and adding tones/textures in photoshop so expect a finshed piece sometime.
Cheers and thanks to everyone who stopped by, i'll return comments soon~

Midnight Carnival

I scanned enough art for two posts! well i just wanted to break this apart.
This is gonna be my last anime painting for a while, while i like the style i think i should try some new stuff for a while.
So this one is I-no( its said like E instead of I) from guilty gear xx, i found the original drawing in guilty gear x draft works and re-drew it ( you can see my rough in a past post below) i cleaned it using flash and then imported it to photoshop where i colored and added textures ( yes its a stock sky texture in the back which i didn't make) it turned out really good so i'm happy, it took me a few days and hours apart to get it done.
the guy is just a character i drew and played around with, i did draw him full body in that one drawing but i guess it was too big so i couldn't scan it and had to crop.


These are some of my recent workings, the guy with the scar is an older character i had drawn before, i went back and drew him for fun, story and his purpose is another matter.

the other faces are from people off the internet, i pushed whatever elements i thought i could do while trying to retain there original expression.

the one drawing is the cop from the movie "paprika" which is probably one of most original films i've seen in a while, its done by a director who's work i like, they include tokyo godfathers,perfect blue and others.

and lastly is a cartoony drawing of myself in my "trademark" pose which is me having my hand just covering my chin while my one eyebrow is raised, friends of mine know all too well...

2010 Vancouver

So as many people know the winter 2010 games are being held in my own backyard of Vancouver!
at first i thought it'd be a great idea but the last year or two has been getting worse and worse, raising taxes, useless "improvements" and many other things, just recently the new mascots were shown as well, they looked nothing less of weird wanna-be anime design characters designed for nothing more the government trying to get an extra cash grab, so in spite of all that i thought i'd draw my own mascot character that more clearly showcases the lower mainland's "colorful" character, i call him HIV harry and he's the hobo on the busy street with the handmade sign asking for money so he can eat or buy smokes/booze.
these other drawings are from photos of people i got off the net ( only two drawings are of people)
anyway that's all for now
