Blue Pencil Sketch X 3

Ok, I've officially gone crazy to draw a bunch of weird stuff which probably does't make any sense to anyone at all. But its really fun, no, its VERY FUN. Maybe I should stick to this new principal and draw some sketches that I genuinely enjoy doing with no pressure at all.

Copic Sketch!!! VampiGirl

I finally started! I've been wanting to try a new style using blue pencil and copic markers to render my drawing. Today I sat down for a few hours and manage to test out the markers! I wish I have a better scanner to scan this but NO! I really like how this sketch turn out and hopefully before Baltimore Comic Con, I can do a few more to brush up the technique.

The expensive Copic markers + my favorite Blue Pencil

Best Kickstarter Project I've Ever Backed: Zombicide

I've backed close to 20 projects on Kickstarter and till date, less than 20% of those successful projects have actually fulfilled their promise in delivering the actual product. As a Kickstarter Creator and Backer, I fully understand how important quality and deadlines are.

Zombicide is one of those top quality projects that I'm glad I was able to participate in. I backed up the Abomination package (the most expensive projects that I have pledged) and receive my copy today, 1 month earlier than the estimated deliver. Here's me un-boxing the board game and you can view the gameplay video HERE.

When I get to the content of the package, I was super excited and
stunned by the quality of the package.

The character game cards are so gorgeous in vivid colors.

The maps are really sturdy and high quality.

Liberty Meadows Tribute Part 4 - Digital Painting

Hi everyone, so I went hiatus for a few days on the Liberty Meadows illustration for a few days due to the workload last week. I manage to drop in a few hours of painting everyday and finally, I manage to paint something that I'm partially satisfied with. I will probably go in to do more tweaking, either pushing the three main characters forward or dropping the rest of the backgrounds further. 

Also, I'll be attending this year's Baltimore Comic Con as a guest and sharing tables with my buddy Eryk Donovan ! The date is Sept 8 and 9 so if anyone is there, please pop by our table and say hi!

You can follow the entire process here: Part 1  Part 2  Part 3

Liberty Meadows Tribute Part 2

Here's an update to the illustration that I'm working on. I rework a huge part of the drawing in blue pencil. This is the first time I'll be inking on such a huge format. (22 by 30 inch) It will probably take a few days work but definitely, it'll be lots of fun. Here's some image of the work in progress.

final blue pencil drawing before inking. 

01. I took the sketch that I did in photoshop and
 printed the entire drawing onto 8 pieces of 11 by 17 paper.

02. I then stitch them together with my 11 by 17 light box.

03. Using my 11 by 17 inch light box, I slowly trace
part of the illustration onto the actual 22 by 30 inch BFK paper.

04. Here's a close up of the new changes I made for the illustration.
