Hi guys ~ sorry for the late update.

Finally I graduated from Art Center!!!! (After…switching majors from graphic design → illustration → Entertainment Arts → Entertainment Design…. what a journey!!!!)

Usually in our Entertainment Design department, most students do visual development projects in sci-fi and featured film style, but I really wanted to do something different. Something I enjoy doing too! So I picked the Mazu project.

My teacher Christian Scheurer said my style is fresh and unique for Ent Design department. I was reaaaally happy to hear that ^^ (coz I wasn’t really sure if doing a complete different style than everybody else was the right thing to do or not…)

Below is my project poster (inspired by Tibetan Thangka). You may have seen my older version in my blog but this is the finalized one. 🙂 I actually changed all the characters’ look and also refined the background.

I like this location painting a lot! This is done after researching and referencing traditional Chinese paintings and it’s compositions. I got a lot of good feedbacks on this painting at the show too 🙂

I actually did some few sec animated loop characters and scenes… will post them later.

The story of Mazu

Date : March 2, 2010

Another project that I am working on is the story of Mazu, Chinese goddess of the sea.
The story is about Mazu’s childhood as a girl with superpower and how she met her guardians “Thousand Miles Eye (千里眼)” and “With-the-Wind Ear (順風耳)”

This will be developed into short flash animation ….when I have enough time. 😛
Before the animation development this will be in flat and graphic style illustration done with Flash.

Poster/Cover of the story (will revise it after I get my teacher’s feedback)

This story is Alex in wonderland.
It’s based on the story Alice in wonderland, but I changed Alice to a boy and the rabbit is a girl.
The boy Alex chases the rabbit girl into a tree hole and enter a different world.

High-quality SEO capitalizes on the search engines effort to match a users search intent to the web pages listed in the SERP.

Internet Search Engines

Search engine optimization (SEO) is one of the most important tools for sites in the hands of SEO providers, professionals, or enthusiasts. For better or worse, it’s the most important part of your business and it will determine the success of your website or business.

We offer three-stage SEO services for several key search engines. We use search engines in a complementary manner to define and target keywords.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a primary aspect of internet marketing. Search engine optimization is a process by which a site or page appears in a search engine results page. This page contains a list of search terms that appear for a keyword term. To make this list of links effective, a search engine offers suggestions for websites that point to the page you are looking for.

Having your site in the search engine results is much more effective than if you don’t. This simple fact has resulted in the creation of many popular search engines: Google, Bing and Yahoo. These three search engines control almost 90% of the internet.

The cost of a search engine is relatively small compared to other parts of a business. It’s an investment that can be a big success.
