Come back to clean the dust a little.

Just found out I still get some views here.
Since everyone moves on to FB, instagram, and Tumblr.. I didn't even think about blog at all.
Not sure if I should keep it.....

Social Network rules......

I am focusing on my Facebook fan page more now and also my newly created Tumblr (still trying to see how ppl react on Tumblr).

So if you happen to check my blog again...... and saw this post....
Feel free to drop by my Facebook fan page:

My co-worker

A quick painting of my co-worker. We have founded this Drawing Club at work and it’s a great motivation for me to do sketches and paintings.
Plus I just got a new Cintiq24HD few days ago ~ the painting experience is different and it’s really funnn!!
This is more a warm up piece since I haven’t painted any personal projects for a while XD. I will do more.

What you looking at?

Monster Inc. test painting (Disney Publishing)

This is another test painting I did a while ago for Disney Publishing for their Monster Inc. children's book project. :)
(yeah the main focus of this test painting is character rendering...so I didn't spend much time on the background ..... kinda want to add more details and shadows now >.<)

I have been working for Evite’s invitation design since Nov 2010 and I love it. I get all the freedom to do illustrations and graphic design on any theme they assigned. The art director usually approves my design right away or only asks for minor tweaks. So I have been experimenting different styles on different themes and he has no problem with it :P and I just got the second assignment contract to sign!

They are asking me to do more styles like hand-drawn illustrations rather than just doing typography with text… so I just played with it… )

Here are some of the designs I did: (all the images are linked to the evite.com invitation page)

My Neopets works

I keep forgetting to post my neopets (Nickelodeon Virtual World) works that I did when I was doing internship at the end of 2009. (Since these were online in 2010 so I can include them in my portfolio XD)

Here are some of the isometric furnitures





Gift boxes

and creepy food for Halloween

and a green hat for all the characters…

New paintings

Here are my recent test paintings I did for Disney Publishing.
I have gained their permissions to include these in my portfolio :)

Although it’s in cute animation style but I still need to pay attention on all the reflections…. just remind me of our ex-department chair Scott Robertson’s vis com class @.@ man those details were very time consuming!!!!! (I am so glad that it doesn't need to be photo real...)



I did have fun doing them though ~ XD

‎2011.02.13 on location B&W gouache painting at Eaton Canyon Park

I am taking a landscape painting class @ Concept Design Academy with Jackson Sze.
Coz I have been thinking about doing more painting practices w/ traditional media for a while and also painting on locations but I don't feel that comfortable doing it... (I'm shy XD) So by taking this class... it's a goof way to force myself doing it ~ ha.

Here are two B&W gouache paintings for our first on location painting class.

I spent longer time on the first one (1.5~2hrs) ~ I did it slow since it's my first traditional medium painting for the past.... 3+ yrs?

Didn't spend much time on the 2nd one (less than 1 hr) ..so I think this one is just ok ~:P

I guess I will force myself to do more on location paintings just for fun and for building the mileage (and also to train myself not to be shy if I paint alone XD).

My graduation show project -Mazu

Hi guys ~ sorry for the late update.

Finally I graduated from Art Center!!!! (After…switching majors from graphic design → illustration → Entertainment Arts → Entertainment Design…. what a journey!!!!)

Usually in our Entertainment Design department, most students do visual development projects in sci-fi and featured film style, but I really wanted to do something different. Something I enjoy doing too! So I picked the Mazu project.

My teacher Christian Scheurer said my style is fresh and unique for Ent Design department. I was reaaaally happy to hear that ^^ (coz I wasn’t really sure if doing a complete different style than everybody else was the right thing to do or not…)

Below is my project poster (inspired by Tibetan Thangka). You may have seen my older version in my blog but this is the finalized one. :) I actually changed all the characters’ look and also refined the background.

Characters line up

main characters
3char 2char

Props, houses, trees

Fighting scene

and the location
I like this location painting a lot! This is done after researching and referencing traditional Chinese paintings and it’s compositions. I got a lot of good feedbacks on this painting at the show too :)

I actually did some few sec animated loop characters and scenes… will post them later.
