"Child's Play" Series now on Flickr

Child's Play - Pterosaur

After making additional revisions to these images, I finally uploaded my "Child's Play"illustrations on Flickr. It is currently a series of only three pieces, which also includes the one above titled "Pterosaur". These images are based on my own personal fragments of childhood memories and imagination, overall creating a sense of playful imagery and each giving their own interpretation.

To see all three, visit "Child's Play"

Deadwood

Deadwood

A narrative exercise:

“Here in the lawless town of Deadwood, the lone man roams. With each encounter he faced spells the risk of danger. The wanted posters referred to him as “Redwood”, but his true name remains unknown. He is stern, watchful, and follows no rules except for one thing: to prepare for Death’s unexpecting presence. Each face-off dual are a test of his sharpness, with pistols on his side, hands spread out, and eyes locked on his soon-to-be-dead opponent. There’s no way to get around his fearless blue-cold look that haunts even the most feared among the lawless. He has survived each moment of split-second-shot duals, with every moment of a small brief victory only to be faced with another foolish foe. Another arrogant fool challenges him, and there he stood with his silver guns ready to blaze through Deadwood air blowing hay pass by him and the streaming light from the Western Sun burning onto his reddened face which only god knows how much deaths he has faced in such unlawful acts of a lone man’s pride.”

Painted on approximately 25x9-inch wooden panel with acrylic and ink.

The Duel (Short Narrative)

Duel (Page 1)

Duel (Page 2)

This is my short narrative exercise for my Visual Narrative class that I did over the weekend. I wanted to tell a short story about two great warriors in a death-match until the truth of what's really going on is finally revealed at the end...

To read the entire 3 page story to find out what happens next, you can go to my Flickr site by simply clicking on the images and check the "The Dual (Short Narrative)" set, or click HERE

[Update] I apparently spelled "Duel" wrong, spelling it as "Dual"! Hahaha, thanks for the correction, Emmanuelle! :)

Temptation and the Tempted (Sexual Seduction)

Temptation and the Tempted (Re-edited Version)

An illustration for the "Good/Bad" project, where I decided to use the old classic tale of Eve and the Snake, but as an attempt to create a more sexually-suggested theme.

'Duh...?'

Cooky-Fun

A caricature-spot for a friend. My aim was to capture her 'silly-quirky' side, while still experimenting by mixing both digital and traditional aspects into one cool package! I must admit, I struggled at one point to make her cross-eyed look completely intentional and not a result from being bad at drawing eyes LMAO :P

Another friend saw this in the process and requested to make her one too, so I think I'll be playing around with some caricature-spots for a while.

The Big Fish

Big Fish

This illustration is based on an editorial article about a man's struggle to fish. The story goes that the man constantly failed in his attempt to make his catch during his day until he finally encountered a large fish described as the "Silver King". The illustration here illustrates the moment where the man struggled his way to make his big catch, while there are plenty of fish in the sea (illustrated visually as a "sea of fish"). The illustration was done both traditionally (graphite, ink, and various textures) and digital (Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator).

Mr. Roboto!

Mr.Roboto

Wow... it has been forever since I uploaded this thing... so here it is. Lately, due to an overwhelming series of events, it has been hard to keep up with this. BUT not to worry, all is now back on track. On another note, to find more up-to-date stuff, it is best to check my Carbonmade site by clicking on the "CLICK ME" link on your right-hand side.

Okay, now that that's aside, I made a fun illustration that was inspired by an article I read about Japanese robots. Apparently, there are projects being developed to produce robots for domestic purposes. After reading on it, I thought it be cool to have a robot to do all your dirty chores around the house (seriously, who would not want that?). So, yea, from there this piece was born! Enjoy.

There could be a possibility that I might make a set of these robot illustrations... so stay tuned for those. On another note, more illustrations to come once I can get myself rolling.

Life-Drawing (Portraiture Session II)




Well, I guess I didn't make it up on New Year's Day like I said I would back on that last post... BUT I guess this piece would be the first piece of 2008, so that counts as something! :P

Anyways, it has been a while since I have been posting anything from Life-Drawing Class, especially something that I felt very comfortable with. I still feel as though I need more practice on portraitures ... considering the fact that I haven't had enough time to practice as much as I wanted to over the Winter Break. However, I felt very pleased that I am not as rusty as I thought I was when I did this piece. Still, practice must always be needed in order to advance, so hopefully I'll get better next time...

This piece was done from life, done with washed-conte and chinese ink on 20x20 (in inches) illustration board.
