Inception Cover Contest Entry

This is my last minute entry for the Inception Comic Cover Contest on DeviantArt. They provided the story and template so I just drop in the art and posted it. The DA staff is going to select 15 semi-finalists and Christopher Nolan picks the final winners! I know it's a slim chance... but who knows? Fingers crossed!

Update: I didn't make the 15 semi-finalists list. :(

Santa 2010

I know... he looks kinda sad. Maybe he's a mall Santa and after a full day dealing with so many kids, he just ran out of gas. ;)

Anyway, hope everyone have a great holidays!

Manga sketch

I recently got a copy of Manga Studio EX. This is my second doodle using the pen tool. I'm really digging the effects... it really mimic the G pen really well. The sketch pencil also worked great. I'll have to get into the program some more after I finish my current project.

BTW... this character is Akito from the manga, Bakuman.

Spooky Sammy

Way back when I started doing the comic convention thing, I made a character named, "Spooky Sammy". I made a batch of little mini comics to sell for 50 cents each plus a few prints. She was a cartoony character and her ability was to be able to see monsters and talk to them. They would help her out in some way, usually to get back at someone that wrong her some how.

Anyway, this pic is an updated version of that character. If I bring her back, it'll probably a horror comic book.

Futurama: Zoidberg

Here's my concept of what Zoidberg would look like if someone tries to make a live action movie of Futurama.... with a hard core scifi visual. ;)

Ghost in the Cemetery

Super quick sketch of a ghost wandering in the cemetery. Why do they wear white? I know it contrast nicely with the darkness but why don't they wear other bright colors or with patterns? oh well...

JCCS Report

I had a good time at the Jet City Comic Show. It's their first show and only for one day... so it wasn't as big as ECCC. All the exhibitors were up front and all the artist/comic creators are in the back. I got a pretty good table facing the front so there were more traffic for me.

Just few cosplayers that came by the artist alley. I wish I took more photos... but I was just too shy to ask.

I did average amount of sells of Betsy Mae comics and did a few convention sketches. The one above is a She Hulk sketch.

First time ever, I did some portrait sketches. One of the Knights of Solaris stood in front of my table while I worked on the drawing. His armor was really cool and was a challenge to put all the details into the sketch. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a pic of the sketch before he left. Right after that, a lady want a sketch of her in the Wonder Woman outfit! While it was fun to do portraits, it was also a little nerve wrecking because you're drawing the client... standing right there! I really hope they like their sketch!
*UPDATE... here the pic of the sketch. Thanks Jesse!!

Final note....I had a good time at the show. It was a little slow in the beginning, got busy in the middle of the day, then got super slow toward the end. I didn't sell a lot overall.... probably broke even. The good side is that everyone have breathing room (artist table was long!) and people can take their time to look at books and talk versus the big conventions can get super crowded and hectic. Bottom line for me, it was really great to catch up with all my friends and talk about comics... and finally, a big THANKS for everyone that stop by my table!

CGhub front page

Found out one of my picture from CGhub is on their front page! Actually, I think there are a few front pages (change daily) and they randomly show one each time you go to their site or click on their "CGHUB" button on the upper left corner.

It's nice to have that out there to get a little more exposure. You can see the picture HERE.

Darth Vader

Helmet design is closer to Ralph McQuarrie's original concept sketch of Darth Vader. It looks like a perfect fit for Christopher Lee. ;)

San Diego ComiCon

On Thursday, I flew down to attend SDCC. It was work related and I stay only one night. Friday afternoon, I left the con and made it back to Seattle by 8 PM. So I only spent about 6 to 7 hours at the show. It was just enough time to walk from one side of the convention to the other. I still managed to miss about 10% of the booth on the floor! With my not so awesome camera, here are some photos from the show.

SDCC has become a mainstream pop culture media convention.... and not just focus on comics. There are toys, video games, movies, TV shows, and other properties competing for your attention on the show room floor.

Movie prop from Tron and the Green Hornet car. One of the biggest movie prop was the throne of Odin from the Thor movie... unfortunately, the pic didn't really turn out.

There are also celebrities doing signings to promote their shows. On the left is Alaina Huffman from Stargate Universe. Going to the right is Lake Bell and Rob Corddry from Children Hospital. I also saw J. J. Abrams. That was pretty surreal.
I had a really fun time... even get to see some of my comic pals at the shows. SDCC is still going on through this weekend.

Illustration Friday: Breakfast

Most Dim Sum place would have carts filled with different plates of Chinese food. They go to each table and you can pick what you want. If the restaurant is too small then you have to order your food by filling out a form then they would bring them to your table. That's when the Dim Sum waitress comes in.

Step by Step

Here's a step by step for my Spectreman fan art I did for a gallery show earlier this year. I started out with a rough doodle for composition. Then tighten up with details and work in gray scale. After that, I applied the colors.
