street fighter crazy

I went Street Fighter Crazy. (I think it was partly due to insominia).
Chunli I wish I had spent a bit of time working on the pose more.
But the colour job wasn't too bad for the time it took.

Unfortunetly I did a few bit of editing to Chunli proportion wise after recording. Hands too big. Arm too long etc oh well...

Slave Princess Leia

I had a heck of a time trying to do the editing. But it was fun to do.
I was thinking of Leia in my two favorite scenes...
Pose from "help me Obi-Wan, you are our only hope"
and costume... well you know where :P

Liquid City:Charlene Chua

I was very grateful to get a copy of Liquid City from my friend Charlene!( like 2 weeks ago, yes I'm a bit late blogging it now).
It's a amazing book. I went with Charlene and her husband Wayne to the "Speak easy comic event"
it was a fun time (I'm writing this way past the event).
I totally urge you to pick up this compilation. It has some amazing artists in there.

I also have my favorite page from Charlene hanging up on my wall.
GO GET IT NOW!!!! Well the book... not the page that Charlene gave me (that page is MINE)

Hypothetical Ad work!

Here are some samples I did recently on car ads. I came up with the copy myself and worked up and illustration for some of these popular cars. I have more in the works. It's an excuse just to sit back and enjoy rendering. No need to come up with a new design out of thin air! Yes, so I'll just try to do Motorwork's design justice:)

The Wire: Lead Temple

FYI I just started a new blog with a few friends. The blog is for fun. Drawing our favorite tv shows, movies and net celebs...
you can find the blog here
but here's another sketch

"Where's Walace at? Where the boy Straight?"

Man I watched the first season of the Wire.. what a awesome series.
D'angelo and Wallace... easily my 2 favorite characters.
For this drawing I didn't exagerate this one as much as my last sketch.
But I had fun drawing D'angelo

Afro Ninja

First time I saw the afro ninja video I died laughing so hard. I showed it to my buddy Ted... and we died laughing. We go back to work... and then we would snicker some more (we were watching it again at our desks). I can't count how many times I've watched this and I never get tired of laughing from it.

So Afro Ninja, if you're reading this. This is dedicated to you.

Afro Ninja
