Poison Ivy Sketch

I work on this whenever i get the chance after work. And ive just been sketching and sketching and sketching here and there til i get it perfect. I still have more to go, like her costume and the background and the snake, etc. But here's my progress so far..

In the next few months I'm trying to do more fanart to give me practice sketching and painting, ALSO finally finish the bellydancer :P Sometimes i need to take a break from that and do something else so fanart is the way to go :D

Bellydancer Update

So I forgot to post this up a while ago, I'm actually still working on this and trying to color it up. For APE some friends suggested I keep it black and white, or give it a sepia tone, but i really wanna see this colored! O_O But i'll post what it looks like overall... with sepia.

I think it's one of my most detailed pieces of concept I've done. Mostly I do cartoony things for work etc, but I like that this is different from my other stuff. I obviously put in a ton of time into it. So here it isss not colored :). I'll post another update when it's fully colored and then you can tell me which you like best :P

It's been a while since I've posted anything after APE!

I took the time to relax a bit and take a break cuz i was pretty burnt out, plus doing art at work lately has been nuts so my focus shifted to that. Here are some sketches I did the past week:

Poison Ivy

Princess Jasmine

I was in a crazy Princess Jasmine drawing mode the past 2 weeks so there are more sketches to come later. I wanted to be her for Halloween but didnt have the time to create a costume :( so sad.

Upon just randomly sketching yesterday i decided i wanted to draw Poison Ivy. I've decided to do some more fanart to practice my painting skills anyway.

Post APE 2011

After a month long of no sleep and non-stop drawing painting and sketching for APE, it's over! It went by too fast it seems. It feels like a blurr!

But it was a total blast. Even if I was dead tired :P I met a TON of awesome ppl and for the first time my art was fully exposed to the public. So I was a little nervous at first but after I got over it, I had fun. I saw many familiar faces and met a bunch of artists, it's actually crazy how small the industry is, I met people that knew people I've worked with or gone to school with. There are so many talented people its both intimidating and motivating.

I even got interviewed by Geek Speak Radio Show and you can check out the interview here on YouTube! (Don't make fun! I was a lil nervous..)

They interviewed a lot of first timers at APE so be sure to check the rest of their interviews!

Overall it was a rewarding experience and an awesome place to make a ton of new artist friends and connections. Will i be doing it again? HELL YES. I'm considering doing Wondercon 2012 in Anaheim this year as well. So be sure to keep an eye out for that if i get a booth :P

I'll post up more pictures as soon as i get them....... since i didnt take my own :(

UPDATE!!! Pictures taken by my cousin!

Here is me at mah booth #420 :P (note the candy!)

I had the a helmet on display along with postcards with info on getting your own helmet painted on.

My amazing brothers and cousins who came to support.

ETSY Shop now open! :D

Hey everyone I just opened up an Etsy shop

For right now I'm selling prints of my art! Check it out!

I plan on doing all sorts of crazy crafts :D So keep an eye out!

The Adventures of TJ & Skweek!


Ok well mostly finished. :P I had to stop working on it bc I was outta time. I have some small fixes here and there that I'd like to make that i'll do later :P

I finally was able to do a full painted revamp of TJ and Skweek. I changed them a little from how I originally created them and made them more proportionate and cute, etc. So I is happeh. Thank you Cintiq!!!!

Ape is only 2 days away and I had to be done with the painting asap so I could get it to print on time! Oh so tired... sooo tired. 

Ice cream time!

Welcome to "Dead" 'Cenada

Mwahahaha! jk... O_O

I finished the zombie concept. I added just a little more from before.. <_<.... >_>...

Check it out!

So It took me a while to figure out exactly what I wanted to do with the background. Luckily I have a pretty creative bf and he gave me the suggestion for the background and I ran with it. Backgrounds and environments aren't my strong suite but I've come a long way from barely doing background images :P This was a fun piece to do to loosen me and my arm up on somewhat speedpainting. Hope people likey! And if you do.. and you're in SF... come to APE and buy a print! ;) (you see what I did there)

Hawaiian Flower

Achievement Unlocked: Completed another illustration!


I changed the background sunset shape since I wasn't satisfied with the original one. Same with the water along with a few other adjustments here and there. It's weird the texture on it doesn't show up as well as I want it to... I'll have to look into that :P This is a pretty diff style piece from what I normally do/ am used to. And it was easy, fast, and fun! Maybe i'll do a series..? :)


Monday, September 19, 2011


Here's what I'm currently working on now! I still have some finishing touches to do on my other pieces, i just needed to take a break from them before coming back to all of them and finishing them. :D

I did this in illustrator and it didn't take me too long. I've already thought up changes to the image which i'll post when I get home. But here's what I started on it!

It's a different style from what I usually do, it's also faster :P I did it in illustrator and put a temp texture over it from cgtextures. I gotta admit thought, I'm liking where this is headed and hope others will too!

APE 2011

I am exhibiting at APE this year and its going to be my first.. convention.. evar! I'm stressed, excited, nervous, scared, happy all at the same time. I'm not exactly sure what to expect I know i'll have fun and it's going to be an awesome experience. I've never exhibited before because honestly I wasn't too informed you can do that, nor did I have a circle of friends who were into exhibiting, or artists. But working at Booyah I made some great friends who happened to be doing it for years. I'm very fortunate to have some awesome friends who help out and have made this process easier than it would have been. They gave me all sorts of tips!

If you are attending please stop by and say hi!

Tickets are $10 a day, or $15 for both Sat & Sun. You can purchase tickets online HERE or on site!

Find me here!! @____@

Heh... that's right. Booth #420... where all the cool kids come to hang ;)


Dhalsim Revised.

I was going through my folder of art I've done and I saw my Dhalsim painting, and thought, why am I not making a print out of this for APE? It's always gotten a lotta love from people. I'm nuts. So I extended it so its a full 8.5 x 10, since before it was just a square. And added more to it along with adjusting some things here and there. So check out my.... redone... Dhalsim painting!

Comparison: (NEW!!!) Yaaaayy :D

                     (OLD) Aawwwww :(

Finished Sailor Moon!

She's FINIIISSHHEEED!.... for now.. ;)

I readjusted a lot the shadows from before bc they didn't make as much sense etc. I'm pretty happy with this only because i have something finished. I'm a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to making art so I could go on and on with it, but i stopped myself because i have quite a lot of other pieces to make :P But I'm pretty happy with it so far. I might find minor changes to make to it later but for now its DUNZO! :D

Sailor Moon Progress 2

Some adjustments and stuff I did last night, mainly with the background. Messed around with random effects and ideas just to figure out what I wanted.

EDIT: Here's what I did for the night. I just added more stars to the background and started rendering out her face and one of her legs and arm more. I have more shading and rendering to do on her dress and costume. But overall i kind of like where its heading ;) I made her nose slightly smaller. and made her lips a little smaller but wider. I might have to mess around with her lips a lil bit more. Oh and added more shading to her face.

Its cool that i can open up both and compare my progress :P and so can u!

Progress on my Sailor Moon fanart!

I've been working on art stuff the past weekend as much as I could. Unfortunately due to holidays and events I wish I was able to do more, but here's what I've done on my Sailor Moon Fanart! It was done in Illustrator and i still have a bit to do. But thought I'd share my work in progress! ;)

I wanted to do a Sailor Moon piece bc its homage to what got me to jumpstart my illustration skill. I drew a lot as a kid, but Sailor Moon got me obsessed with being an artist :)

Just a widdle update

On what I'm working on!... that is..

APE is coming up closer and closer and I'm SOO behind! >_<
So I'm sketching stuff like crazy all at once so I can ink/ paint them soonish. As long as I have a bunch of cool lineart I think that's a good base/ start to where I wanna go with... my stuff... lol. Stay tuned for more!

Just for funnn..!

So I recently made an investment and got a Cintiq. So I'm forcing myself to just paint for the heck of it. Just to find the fun in creating art again since the majority of art I make is work related. So here's a quick speedpaint of TJ. It's off an old sketch I did. A newer one is coming up soon! I figure i should exercise with painting some TJs since I was planning on finally starting on that comic I wanted to do. I might go in later and refine this one. 

Lineart was done in Illustrator, painting done in PS :)

Yaaaay Cintiq!! @____@

Bellydancer Progress :)

I've put this off far too long! And I'm finally getting back onto finishing painting her. I also gave her a new face. Here's a progress shot! I'm excited for the outcome of this. I can tell my painting skills have improved since the last time i worked on this painting (which was several months ago).

Check it out yo!

WishB Work

I worked at WishB for about a year and a half on a project called Globworld. I couldn't post up any of the work I got to work on because until about when I left WishB for Booyah! they didn't release anything to the public at that time. So I finally get to show you guys the stuff I worked on while working at WishB! I just recently updated my website with new art from various stuff I worked on.  :)

(Blogger is being a butthead and was making it difficult to put them in the right order. So ignore the strange order of images o_o")
