Optimus Prime and Megatron baby rompers

Pencils and traditional inking, scanned and painted in PS CS5.1 with Wacom intuos 4

Transformers Optimus Prime and Megatron Rompers

Aug 2013

As known, I'm a huge fan of Transformers! Not the Michael Bay movie version but the G1 version we all loved when we were young.

As a new father, how can I not dress up my kid with Transformers stuff? I did online and retail shopping and sadly, I couldn't find any transformers clothes for infants. So I decided to designed my own.

I was influence by IDW's comic designs and G1's cartoon design, so I fused them to together to create a hybrid style Optimus and Megatron. 

But unfortunately I couldn't get it to print as Transformers characters are registered trademarks and the cloths printer refuse to print my stuff due to copyright reasons.

Oh well, so much for a Transformers fan.

Being a new Father

Pen only

Comparing taking care of a infant kid versus Military Service

Jul 2013

Taking care of my kid and doing night duties has taking a toll on me. All this fatique reminds me of my time in military service 10 years ago. The only difference is I was in my prime when I was serving, now I'm lacking behind in terms of physical and mental fitness.

Cleaning the bottles are stuff and akin to cleaning my rifle during night training. This comical strip is to highlight my point.

Delicated to all Fathers who served in the military...

Crazy Tank Designs

 Bionix Scout Variant IFV

 British Mark X Heavy Tank (Male)

Pencils or Pen Only

Crazy Tank designs for Facebook Military sketch group

Jun 2013

Someone had a crazy idea on the military sketch group I frequent in facebook: To design and create the more ridiculous and craziest battle tank I can think of.

I came up a few during my night duties with my 1 month old kid. Seems like the more stressed and tired you are, the crazier you get.

Here are some of my hastily drawn creation. I apologize for the lack of refinement as I'm like most dead from taking care of my forever crying infant at night. -_-"

Diary Eschaton Trailers

Pencils and scanned and painted in PS CS5.1 with Wacom intuos 4. Some texturing involved with pictures taken from a Samsung Galaxy camera phone.
Trailers for my upcoming Web Picture book "Diary Eschaton"
Between Feb - May 2013
As I'm close to completing my year-long Web picturebook, I made quick trailers/teasers to post on facebook and more to motivate myself to complete this project.

This project was conceived after I discovered my wife's pregnancy. I decided to give it all I've got to complete a project as I predict I will not have time to casually draw stuff after my kid arrived.

Unfortunately, my kids decided to come out of this world before I can complete my project. Hence this project is delayed up to 6 months.
Currently I'm at the final stages of completion.  Around 70%. I hope to release this web picturebook by November 2013

Fairlady with her pet snake to usher 2013

Traditional pencils, scanned and colored in Photoshop CS5 with Wacom Intuos 4 tablet.

The fair Celestal Maiden travel with her flying giant pet snake to usher the new year of the snake.

Feb 2013

This art piece is create as a greeting "card" for my friends in Facebook and my neighbours. Although not much effort was put into the design of the Maiden, it's still my first attempted to draw a classical chinese maiden with ancient "wuxia" Attire. I've "modernized" it to give her a more femine and "sexier" appeal.

Due to Work commitments and time constraints I was not able ink it and touchup the picture the way I wanted. But it's still looks okay.

I was told that if maidens where dressed like during ancient times in China, they would be considered as whores.... I guess that's why I'm not into drawing classic chinese "wuxia" archetype characters.
