A quick painting of my co-worker. We have founded this Drawing Club at work and it’s a great motivation for me to do sketches and paintings.
Plus I just got a new Cintiq24HD few days ago ~ the painting experience is different and it’s really funnn!!
This is more a warm up piece since I haven’t painted any personal projects for a while XD. I will do more.

What you looking at?

This is another test painting I did a while ago for Disney Publishing for their Monster Inc. children’s book project. 🙂

(yeah the main focus of this test painting is character rendering…so I didn’t spend much time on the background ….. kinda want to add more details and shadows now >.<)

Here are my recent test paintings I did for Disney Publishing. I used my favorite acrylic paint sets amazon to make the painting. Acrylic paint is one of the most versatile mediums, and one of the least toxic.
I have gained their permissions to include these in my portfolio 🙂

Although it’s in cute animation style but I still need to pay attention on all the reflections…. just remind me of our ex-department chair Scott Robertson’s vis com class @.@ man those details were very time consuming!!!!! (I am so glad that it doesn’t need to be photo real…)



I did have fun doing them though ~ XD

The story of Mazu

Date : March 2, 2010
Comments :

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)

3 Characters design of the Mazu story

Mazu – childhood

Thousand miles eye

With-the-wind ear

Props and background are still under development.

Our instructor used red and green lights as the setting so we had to figure out how to use the colors and how to paint the dark/light sides since the light sides were on both side.

These are in class live paintings.
We had to bring our laptop, wacom tablet, and folding chair to go to different places to paint every week. It was a fun class (except when we went to a park where has no food and water and even no shading :P)
