alright, now this is more like it

I've spent the past few nights working on a new coloring style and here's the progession, in chronological order. The drawings themselves are pretty old, but I'm still going to work off of them for consistency's sake. I think that even with their multiple errors and levels of unfinish in the drawing stage, if I were to draw them now, they'd be very different.

yeah, i don't know either

On the left: watercolor on moleskine.
On the right: digital colors.

The one on the left was done after the one on the right. A lot of people couldn't figure out exactly what was happening when I was working on this, and to be honest, now I can see why. It was intended to be a final rendering for a conceptual illustration class last year; and this scene tried to capture the climax of the story I had come up with at the time.

End result: meh.

I did learn some nifty tricks in the digital version, however.

watercolor candy

These pictures were drawn and colored listening to lots of pumpin disco and Midnight Juggernauts.

They're all watercolor and ink with slight digital touchups, mainly on the skin.

On the right here, we take a sneak peek into Jenny's everyday going ons, and on top we sail straight through the sun on a cosmic disco train. :D


I wonder if I pick these Fruit Loopsy Starburst Trix colors because I'm slightly colorblind.

Digital Love

So I was hard-drive rummaging this past weekend and I found two unfinished digital coloring sketches that gave me painting bug. One of them became the new header for the blog... do you like it?

I put up the old header here for nostalgia's sake.
There's also this really old rendering of Jett fighting some weird insect rock monsters or something. I don't know.
Slapped on some color and well.. that's it.

CRASH rakugaki

And with this my first rakugaki sketchbook comes to a close!

Wednesday, October 14, 2009


You know, it's been getting hectic recently. Juggling around a lot of work, ideas, and problems.
The lack of internet at home has made it possible to focus on the work that needs to be done, comics wise. Ideas always come and go and the future's troubles are always the clouds on the horizon... which draw closer every day.

Thats a fancy way of saying that I've fallen of the boat in updating this blog.

The One Piece fanart is set to be done at the end of the month while I finish up some other things and prep myself for a one-shot story.

I'll post the teaser pages when all is said and done, but in the mean time, here's the continuation of the RAKUGAKI BEAT.

more haikus- i mean hiatuses- i mean

Hey there fellers! It's been a busy month of work and also work. I blame my sudden rush of productivity on the lack of available (unlocked) internet in my homestead and THUS I am forced to channel my boredom into horrible jokes drawn on paper.

I'll leave that for another blog post, however.
This one's just to touch base and display something you won't find anywhere else: the workings of a secret project!
