Cookie Monster


Well I finished drawing all of the Titans Kristina. This is a very late entry for a draw off submission that had a cookie theme. As you can probably tell all the previous post were part of this one. So Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, and Happy Festivus.

A Star Named Kori



She's going to do a belly flop. Will I finish drawing the rest of the Titans? Stay tuned and find out.

A Flying Grayson

Robin is always in Christmas colors. Now that they announced there's going to be an Batman Arkham Asylum 2, maybe he'll make a cameo.

In Progress

Something old, something new, something blue. Like I said, I'll try an update as much as possible.

Raven aka Ray Ray

Don't know how I feel about this one, but posted it anyway since its been a cool minute. I'll try to update often and if I'm slacking on the posts feel free to come back and complain.

TTGL's Yoko

Damn I forgot her gun.

Gun Slingers

The mustache makes me laugh. I'm going to revisit this design in the future and fix it up.

Act 1: Liquid Sun


I started replaying Metal Gear Solid 4 and as much cool shit Snake does he never seems to come out on top in this game. I would fix some things but I accidentally merged some layers and then saved it.

Strike A Pose

It's down right fierce.

The Letter A

A is for Arisia and Akuma. I'm just doing my alphabets.

S and M


Damn I did not realize I went a whole month without posting something new. Another Solid Snake drawing, except this one is colored and look there's Meryl. If you like Metal Gear Solid, you'll probably like this

Cowboys 2 Girls

"Cowboys to girlllllssssssssss, I remember when I used to play shoot em up, shoot em up, bang, bang baby". Just been sketching stuff. Sketching a lot of stuff lately.

Avatar Aang


My little cousin requested this a long time ago, I just finally got the nerve to draw it. This show is the best cartoon that has ever been televised, well for now at least.

Sakura

This little fighter runs point on my Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 team. I'm glad they decided to re-release that game.

Ana-May-Shun Snippet

video

Well here's a snippet of what I finished animating during my senior year. This animated short is 25.16 GB so to compress this thing for the internet is a pain because it distorts the aspect ratio and the overall quality of the product, since I'm not putting this on youtube. I originally did not want to post this online, but I changed my mind...for now. I cringe at the site of this, I want to redraw most of these scenes. The sound editor/fooley artist for this short was the amazing Lenny Menchiari and here's a sample of his amazing animation.

The supervising sound editor and other fooley artist was the talented JP De Guzman. As soon as I get a link to his site or what not I'll post it. I hope you guys out there like it.

Oh yeah there's a minor issue with a scene, I think it plays back a previous frame.

Hal Jordan






I have a love hate relationship with this one. So Green Lantern: First Flight dropped yesterday. I hoped you copped yours because it's worth buying. I saw it premiere at Comic-Con and I can't believe all of Ballroom 20 recited the Green Lantern oath before the movie. I don't know the words so I just sat there and looked like an idiot.

The film was directed by the big homie Lauren and additional scenes boarded by the other big homie Jay.

2 Points




Back on the light board. Bout to animate the shit out of this character. Naw I'm lying. Just something I drew up for the portfolio.

Week 5 HD Remix



Yup I put the wrong background on the older picture. That also needed to be fixed. I'm only redoing the screen shots I posted. I'm not cracking open that project because then I'll redraw every scene and I just don't want to do that.

Some Designs


Just some designs I've drawn up in the past days. The one below is for the Draw Off competition in which we had to draw ourselves in 3/4 pose and then it's all going to be put in a collage or something along those lines. The design is a little off, my shirts and shorts are normally longer than that. Yeah my skin tone is a little off too, I'll fix that later. Drawing those Space Jams were a pain in the ass, that is one complex shoe.

Here's the other submissions:

Kalia "Hawaiian Tsunami" Cheng


Zack "Always Cool" Ramirez


Christina "Kiki" Manrique

Zack "Hawaiian Zack" Wong


Julio Colbert-Vasquez

A)Billie Jean
B)The Lady in My Life
C)The Way You Make me Feel
D)Liberian Girl
E)Rock With You

HD Remix Bonus





Just a post for the sake of posting. I think I'm going to turn this into a base ball card and put her killing stats on the back.

Week 6 HD Remix





There's tons of scenes that I would like to redraw, this being one of them. Due to time constraints I had to get scenes done as fast as possible, because I knew I wanted to spend more time on the post production and switching up scenes I didn't like in the animatic. So basically here's what made the final cut and the one above is what I really wanted it to look like.

The King



"Music has been my outlet, my gift to all of the lovers in this world. Through it — my music, I know I will live forever". Michael Jackson, December 2007.

One of the greatest musicians of all time. Thriller holds the record for most albums ever sold, so if you want to dispute that statement just talk to the 109 million and counting that bought that album. I constantly listen to Thriller and Off the Wall when I'm drawing or animating. Zack R and I would throw on Off the Wall down in the labs to keep us awake when we pulled all nighters animating. I quickly drew this one while watching some of his iconic music videos on MTV. Guess what video this image is from.

Space Kicks aka Round 17


Another space girl, except this time it was for the Draw-Off competition. I prefer the sketch over the colored one.

Sunday, June 14, 2009

Azula




What no lightning today Azula!

Back from the Diz Gibran/Pacific Division/ The Clipse concert. So I finished this up real quick and well here it is. Avatar the Last Air Bender is in my all time favorites. It is without question one of the best cartoons ever made.

White Stars


Now I'm just getting lazy with the backgrounds. This is old and I just fixed it up, finally. So I drew this first and then I felt it was boring so then I drew the one below called Sai.

Oh yeah I made some adjustments to Violent Stars, so just scroll down to check it out.

Tuesday, June 9, 2009

Sai



While rendering out some old animation I sketched this and then cleaned it up. There's another drawing that goes along this one, I'll post it tomorrow .

Scene 1 Pan


Background painted by Zack Wong. This is the opening shot of my thesis film, that never would of happen without JP, Lenny and Zack convincing me to animate this scene that I had originally cut out. The original had very bad drawing of the character, so I finally got a chance to fix it.

Saturday, June 6, 2009

Violent Stars



UPDATE: I did some tweaking. I don't know which one I like more.

This looked better in my head. That hover board thing is based off a shoe, yup that's right a shoe. The Nike Air Max Penny 1. So is her color palette.

Goten & Trunks






UPDATE: Added some detail to Goten after a suggestion from Kalia.

Dragon Ball Z is to me what Disney is to most animation majors. I didn't want to be an animator because I watched Disney movies, I wanted to become an animator to draw cool shit all day and blow shit up after having a 3 episode long fight scene. These two are my favorite characters. I won't post the roughs because they're really bad, I had to do a lot of fixing with this one.

DUKE!





Here's the rough, here's the clean. I like the rough better.

GO JOE!



It was about that time to do some G.I. Joe fanart. Duke doesn't know what Scarlett is shooting at or why she's aiming the gun like a moron and that's why Duke is pissed.

Week 0_Graduation





It's been a a busy few week with graduation and other end of the year ceremonies. So I haven't been able to draw that much or do anything art related, but I have all summer to update this with some more doodles. Until then I guess you guys have to stare at this.

Thesis Snippet 2

video

And you thought I was joking earlier.

Kalia Cheng's artwork makes a cameo in this thesis snippet, so look real close to try and find it. This is not the best resolution, but until I find a way to make it better, this is as good as it gets. It might drop frames, so play it again until it plays smoother. And yes I'm well aware of the misspellings in the credits, and yes I did start off a sentence with "and". Conjunction junction what's your function.

Week 1


Graduation got in the way of this post. Sorry it took so long. I also decided to make this image the background menu for the dvd copy of my thesis that no one has yet.

Week 2


It took a week to post this. This should have been posted last week, but stuff got in the way. So to bring you up to speed on what's going on here, Optimus Prime just gave him the Matrix because Hot Rod inadvertently caused his death and now there needs to be a new Auto-bot leader so Hasbro can sell more toys.

Just 3 scenes left to animate and this will be done. As soon as my friend finishes up putting some sound effects on the scenes, I'll post a snippet on this blog.

Week 3


It just doesn't stop. The quality isn't the same as the previous images because this time around I had to take a screenshot of the image since the image that was exported did not come out the way it was supposed to look.

Saturday, April 11, 2009

Week 4


And here's another one.
