I was trying out a different approach on how to colour things digitally (by slapping colours on a different layer and changing its attribute to 'color' in Photoshop). I rarely ever do it in fear of it looking unnatural, but with some touch-ups and critiques, it works anyway.

So... by experimenting on the sketch I did way early this morning, I made a fan art! This might be my (adult, skankified) version of Piper of the Storm Hawks. Sorry Asaph Fipke... T_T

Detail of her face:Late night doodle. I should be doing work. Why blue? because I am terrible with colours. Also, I wish I'm really good with anatomy :(

Marvel Masterpieces 3

Marvel Masterpiece 3 is out soon, and thus the reason why it took me almost forever since my last creative post. I had loads of fun with it despite minor frustrations (way too many universes I can't settle for, very few clear references, art blocks, bad anatomy, sweaty palms, shaky lines, ink smudges, procrastination... etc).

Also, it was the best canvas to practice my new markers on! :D Thanks again guys, for the fantastic prezzie!

Below are my contributions to MM3. Captain Mar-Vell is drawn by me. On the right is the cover for the MM3 sets, done by the incredible and talented James Jean:

This is where I started going crazy with my new markers. A few botches here and there, but I'm quite happy with how some of them turn out :)

100 pieces! Done, approved, and over with! Whew! *lies down on the floor*

Cool Beans!

I've just celebrated my birthday last week, and I gotta say that I've the best and coolest family, friends, and colleagues ever! It all started out with wonderful birthday songs and well wishes at exactly midnight, and a blue package with a card on top that morning. How they managed to sneak these around me, I'll never know:

Sauron the cute kitty offering me a hint:
An assortment of cool and awesome folks:
The perfect yummy combo:
My precious first set of jelly beans:

That evening, my friends took me out to dinner at Secret Recipe, and the day ended with some phone calls from my closest friends and relatives; especially my sister, Fay (who was always there to keep my sanity in check).

Thanks everyone for this fantastic gift :) it's definitely just the thing I need to kick-start some maniacal creativity, and I promise to use this to its fullest potential. I really don't know how to thank you. I think the best thing about birthdays are simply the people I'm surrounded by... You all make my life a blessing <3>
