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.

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..? :)

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 :)
