I did a different approach with Nu here. I tried it with a more realistic rendering than what I first attempted.

Down the rabbit hole - revision

Okay, on the first "completed" upload, I forgot to turn the top layer back on when saving (oppsie). Therefore, it was missing the jam and the spoon. Also with a suggestion from my friend, Ciro, I bumped up the intensity of the light.

Thanks Ciro =D

This is my latest illustration. Obviously the sketch is different from phase 2. I'm starting to like the phase 1 over phase 2, lolz. I dunno. I was sitting at a karaoke bar where my friend, Justin was practicing for the MGM singing contest. It started off as a sketch then I scanned it and doodled away. Even though it's in phase 2, I'm still trying to figure out which style I want to render this in. With phase 2, I used the soft round instead of a custom one that I normally do.

Ground Up...chibified!

My friend asked me to chibify (deformed figures) his group =D So to take a break from my illustrations this is my warm up fun sketch! I wonder if they know who they are or not. ^^;;

down the rabbit hole

Original Sketch:


So I finally have finished my first piece for "Alice.Alice.Alice." The future seems a bit fuzzy but I'm going to continue working on pieces for this project. This piece is done in photoshop, time is about 45+ hours. It started off as a color study but in the end I wound up finishing the whole thing.

Photo playing

Overall, it took what felt like eternity with the slow non-touch sensitive mouse.

Nu&Star - samurai piece v.2

This is the cleaned up version of the previous sketch. I basically switch the position of the two girls and added more embellishments on Nu's shield. As for the background and all, I am contemplating if I should deal with sakura or ginko. Right now it's leaning toward ginko because that is something that I rarely use. Plus it's so pretty when it falls =D

This is the new piece I'm working on. As you can see, it's rough, really rough. I haven't been as inspired as I wish to be. More so of, not as creative. But I think this is a good start. The deadline is Sept.11th, let see if I can finish this and create 1-2 more before then.

Happy Birthday

This is drawn for my aunt's boss. She's a really nice lady and this is to celebrate her birthday this year. Not bad for something that took 15 mins and with a set of cheap color pencils. A set of 12 even. This card was challenging for me because I was unfortunately sick with a respiratory infection. So even just the pencil felt really heavy to me. However, that's not going to stop me. It sort of stopped me from sitting at my desk but as long as I can sit up in bed without being dizzy then its all good. Okay too much on the sickly bug rant. Well this was definitely a nice break from doing work for Ground Up. Like I said, it's nice to be away from the computer.
