Visual Development

This story is Alex in wonderland.
It's based on the story Alice in wonderland, but I changed Alice to a boy and the rabbit is a girl.
The boy Alex chases the rabbit girl into a tree hole and enter a different world.

Limited Palette

This painting is done with limited palette.
I am only using the colors between orange and blue to paint this.

Monster Mountain

This is a visual development based on a children's story I wrote.

It's about a village on an island where there is a monster mountain with monsters living in it.

Village people are afraid of monsters and no one is allowed to go there.

Until one day a boy Jack was lost and he met 4 monster babies, Aero, Pyro, Terra, and Aqua with their guardian fairies Fu, Ka, Chi, and Ku. . They became friends.

One day there is a serious natural disaster that may destroy the whole island. So those baby monstors and their father decided to help. Village people finally understand that monsters are harmless so they work together to fight the storm. Afterwards, monsters become the guardian of the island. With monsters guard, village people live happily and peacefully ever after.

These design are for children's book and movie animation.

Image and idea - poet

These are my 3 rough ideas for my illustration "Poet" (temp title)
We need to draw an illustration based on a sentense or a paragraph.
Mine is:
Walking near the pond, bent down, the ballpoint pen on the chest jumps into the water, and then a black rose floats.

I chose the 3rd one.

Storyboard for motion - Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon

We need to choose a song and create a storyboard for motion piece.
So I chose Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon sound track and this is my 1st draft idea.

The whole image looks like this:

Revised: (Removed photos from the movie to add more personal feel)
