Alien ambush!

Another painting about being attacked! This'll be the last time I paint about this subject for for a while, i just have to get it out of my system. For this painting I want to be able to paint something in the dark with specific light sources! I hope to learn the importance of contrast. I'm also trying a more dramatic angel/prespective. After starting this one out, I'm worried if I have bitten off more than i can chew.... I hope I can finish this piece!

Shark AttaCK!!! finished!!!!

IT'S FINALLY DONE!!! WOOT!!! Well until I get feedback from my friends.. but for now its done, and besides, I dont think I can work on it anymore today...

shark attack WIP continued...

Here's a close up of the mermaid. I didnt feel having just a naked chick wiht a fish butt enough to be a mermaid, so I decided to give her more fins. What do you think?

Shark attack WIP

Here's another update:

Here's a very up close of the mermaids face. I'm kinda happy with it since i havent used any reference! Not too bad!

Here's an update:

After lookng at the last two paintings I've done, I realize they really don't feel very painting like. I was asking my friend Walter for advice on how to make more painting like paintings and he basically told to to just paint straight on in photoshop, so tha tis wat i'm trying. I'm actually surprised how fun it is, yet I'm far from reaching the "concept artist" look. I wonder how this piece will will look when its done..

Galaxy Girl!

I was inspired by Travis Charest's Space girl comic and not being to buy a copy :( So I drew my own, kinda... It took a lot longer than I wanted to to finish, but all in all, I'm pretty pleased wiht it. The chick's outfit is cute, the glowing blob alien look cool and the space ship is aight. Maybe I will write some mini stories about "galaxy girl". BTW, the ship in the backgrond is an enemy ship that shot her down, she just so happened to land on a hostile place. How will Galaxy girl get out of this pickle?

Air Kraken attack...FINISHED!!!

First of all, I'm an artist(trying my best) and not a spelling bee champ... with that said, I think this piece is finally finished! Painting in Photoshop is pretty fun! Theres so much I learned, but I know I havent even scratch the surface of what can be achieved! Well i have to go dream up of somethng else to paint. I don't know if this piece will be any good in a portfolio, but it still looks pretty fun to look at. I hope you enjoy it!

I coloerd pretty much everything that required color. I been staring at this piece to long to think clearly abuot what i need to tweak, but for now, it will be considered finished. Can't really tell that much has changed from the last post unless turn the layers of this version on and off in photoshop. I hope u like it!

Air craken attack-color W.I.P.

This is a work in progress. I don't really know anything about digital painting and I hope I can learn a lot from this piece b4 i finish it. I'm already thinking of other things I would like to paint, but not until I finish this one!

*above the clouds*

Here's more concept art for my latest comic idea inspired by the steam punk theme. I had a very tough time trying to come up with the name of my story. I was riding a plane back from sdcc 09 and looked out the window thinking about my new idea and was in awe to see that we were above the clouds, then it hit me that that should be the title to my latest story! So there you have it folks, thats the title to my newest comic idea! Well at least a working title for now.

Hopefully I'll update this blogg wiht a color version of this image soon.

Mecha Skullbunny print

Here's a quick print i want to make. Not sure if It'll be ready for SDCC 09 :(

Monday, July 6, 2009


To compare the size of Mecha SkullBunny on the left to the original SkullBunny figure.

This is "battle mode offine" Mecha SkullBunny. Creating the side plates are by far the most challenging thing and will probably the last thing I will be trying to tweak. >_<

These are the standard issue missile launchers. Just because they're standard doesn't mean they're not chalked full of "Kaiju whoop ass".

These's are the "Emmy Rockets", b/c my friend Emmy suggested I make these. These rockets are the strongest ammo Mecha SkullBunny has eqiuped. They're 24 rockets loaded with "OhF*uckMe,WhyDidIEverMessWithMechaSkullBunny?" goodness.

Mecha SkullBunny VS. Gargamel's Zag!
(Yes, Pete, that's your Zag I've yet to paint! I'm SO SORRY! I'll do it soon, I promise!)

Here's a prototype of my Mecha SkullBunny the way I've always imagined it as a toy! I'm working feverishy to try to get it available to sale at the San Diego Comic Con 2009. If it's not ready then, it'll be ready soon after!

steampunk idea

I sketched this idea out during lunch. Trying to visualize the world of my next short story project. The main character is still WIP. I'm going to make a "real" verson of this image soon, hopefully...

Today I went to Shabu shabu in san mateo. I mixed alot of crushed garlic with my ponzu sauce. It was delicious. Then I drew this picture on a napkin with a gold ink pen.

Color to the cover art of my 3rd sketchbook

I'm still not quite sold on the colors of this piece, but it'll take me too long to figure it out. I guess the uninspired feel to the girl makes it difficult to color.

colored tiger girl

I spent longer than I should have, but it not too bad. I'm pleased with its muted back ground. I wish this was a real screen print or something.

Skeletor Skullbunny

This piece was done for a He-Man tribute art show at the collector toy store Double Punch in San Francisco.

I used Watercolors. Still a bit rusty since the last time I used them.

Bad Ramen

I was eating ramen with my friend in Japan town when suddenly I pictured a lockness monster peeping out of my ramen. BTW the ramen i had was oishides!

Steam punk repair man

This is a concept for a story i'm thinking of drawing soon....

Today I drew a real girl....

Yes, that's right, not fake girls from my head, this one was real. Go ahead and make all the jokes you want... are you done? Anyways, I was at a public figure drawing class tonite and the model kept posing wiht his back toward us and he did a 20 minute pose! The ppl on my side were demanding that he pose wiht his front to us, and he said next one. So instead of drawing his back completely in shadow, I drew a very cute girl who was very much into her drawing, that alone is hot. I liked her giant godzilla shirt and her big loop ear rings. I didn't get her name though, maybe next time....

WTF wolverine movie!

I just saw the wolverine movie. Overall it was good. But..BUT.. there was part which logic, even in these movies where the use of "logic" is already pretty laxed, is just something I can't not let go. I'm already bothered by how I can not already understand how many of the things in my life work out, but to have this annoying lack of "logic" bother me in a movie in which I was trying to just enjoy to get away from the stoopidness of my own life, thats just pushing it. So I present to you a comic I have made in 2 hours last nite, a first btw in not only time, but also b/c I never really moved by anything to have drawn a comic about it like this b4!

So here it is:

In case you dont get.... the bad guys sent their BEST with GUNS guy after wolverine. Of course Wolverine jacks him. In the very next scene the bad guy boss reveals that the ONLY WEAPON THAT CAN STOP WOLVERINE IS A GUN WITH ANTAMATIUM BULLETS.

Who writes this crap? This scene is a example of the prevebial fine line between comic genuis or complete jack ass....

I was struggling to draw something all day on tuesday which carried on to wednesday. This is the best I could come up with. My friend told me i hav eot stop drawing from my head. He maybe right cuz I think I have exhuasted my imagination for now.

Bigger SkullBunny!

I have worked for weeks on a skullbunny model in Maya and after finishing it, I was able to print it out using a 3d printer! It's the coolest thing I've ever done, for now :)
The small one is one of the very first castings of the original skullbunny figure I made in September 2006.

Poor kappa has a girl on his mind all the time...

kikaider dog

This was a devil dog figure produced by secret base. A lot of japanese vinyl toy collectors hated it, so i went a bought one anyways. Afterward, i felt like I had made a bad purchase :(. It sat in a box for months until I heard that Super 7 was haviong a custom toy art show. I asked Lee and Glenn @S7 if I could be part of it months ago and they said ok.

Months later, I had forgotten I was part of the show and so I hauled ass and I painted this figure in less than 2 days! I blame myself for forgetting that I am part of an art show at Super7 Japanese toy shop in Japan town next sat, on April 18. Hopefully someone will buy it and I'll make back the money I spent on it originally :P

Killer viking girl

I dont usually draw any violent images, but even this one doesnt feel so violent. The blood on the axe looks so fake and she should have more blood and damage on her if she was fighting the monster that she killed. unless she got him from behind, sneaky bitch...

Time is running out!

I drew this during lunch on paper. I've concluded that it's more fun to draw on paper. My friends say the bunny is really creepy looking, but i think his body is rather cute.

cintiq fishes

This is the second drawing I've made using the wacom cintiq. It's not like paper and pen, but close enough and more forgiving. It sux that at the end of the drawing, you don't really feel like u own it cuz there is no physical piece of art to hold unless you print it out, but that's not the same. Anyways, still trying to get use to using it and its a lot of fun.

turtle tagger girl

Too tired to write about it

Monday, March 30, 2009


My friend Jill is a very talented artist(painting, sewing you name it...) and I asked her to make me a Usagi Jane hat from my SkullBunnies comic and she delivered! THANK YOU JILL!!!

oni-tiger girl

This drawing took me 5 days to finish! I started this drawing on Tuesday, but was not able to finish it during lunch. It was a very long and personally difficult week to get through, and from the begining I had felt as tired like the girl appearently looks like, but not as comfortable. I wasn't sure where I was gong when I started the drawing besides the fact that I was feeling exhausted and wante dot express that in my drawing, my Friend James suggested that I draw a horn on her, and so i did and fromt hat point it becames this oni-tiger skined themed pic. I guess this girl is like my verson of Rumiko Takahashi's Lum. I'm not sure if it was worth taking 5 days to finish this drawing, but overall I'm glad it's done. At least it's one thing I said I have accomplished this week. Now if only I can actually fix the real problems in my life....

Work in progress 3d skullbunny

I have working on this skullbunny model on and off for little over a week now and the head has been so frustrating to smooth out the corners of the head since I started modeling it from a cube.

But overall I think it's coming along well.

Thank you Yuka!!!

A while back I was feeling a bit unsure about the way I've been drawing girls, then suddenly from literally out of no where my friend Yuka sent me an email that said she enjoys the way I draw girls! It really cheered me up! Yuka also sent me a beautiful drawing of a bunny girl!

Yuka is a very talented artist and you can view her work here:
