~14 July~

This year has been fantastic. I've worked hard to find ways to obtain my workstation and finally my dream is coming to pass!

Recently, I make use of the Great Singapore Sale and purchase a digicam and an all new Thunmbdrive!! :D I was pretty sad that my inital thumbdrive got misplaced. But guess what, this new one is cheaper and cooler! Yeap! ;D

Anyway, this post is to thank all my friends who has been and always will be supporting me and encouraging me to pursue my goals and dreams. Guys, lets do this together! Never give up until our goals and dreams are fulfilled! Gambadae~ :D

My Churchmates bought me a set of monochromes! (^^) Whoot~





Yeah! Onwards Mangaka!

TRANSFORMERS


It's more than meets the eye~

I watched it with a couple of wonderful people. Micheal Bay's great. Known for his explosive style in all his films. (e.g. Pearl Harbour)

TRANSFOMERS is another one of his fantastic work. Go watch it. Strict believers of TRANSFOMRERS may not be please with the new cool concept of Opimus Prime, howvever, if you can swallow that everything else is just great.

Check out the stunning Starscreammmm!!!!! Also not to forget the ever-loving blue-eyed BumbleBee~ :D

Will there be a sequel to this? Who knows, but I reallyhope so. Haha.. For one thing, it will change the way you look at machines.

Trailer:

Monsterism - Ceriron



Tools: Pilot Mech. Pencil, Photoshop 7

A Concept character I've created partly for a competition I'm in currently: Mangaka.sg. Partly also due to an observation I've made in regards to my drawing scope.

Description:
Monsterism - Ceriron

The Story:
A chemcal disaster in 1986, left a quarter of the world's population contaminated with a strange disease. Many people were killed as a result of the Chemical contamination. Yet, not all of them perish in the disaster. Quite a number of them miraculously survived the tragedy.
Their good news were short lived,however, when they realize the price for being alive. They are as normal as other human being; but when the need arises, they evolved into magnificent war beasts!!

(Note: Story content subject to expansion and changes.)

Monsterism - Daikuk



Tools: Pilot Mech. Pencil, Photoshop 7

A Concept character I've created partly for a competition I'm in currently: Mangaka.sg. Partly also due to an observation I've made in regards to my drawing scope.

Someone requested for a monster tattoo from my portfolio. I didn't notice this at first but after searching for just one monster, I realize that I haven't seriously created any.

Therefore, I think it's an opportunity to create a series of monsters in my collection - "Monsterism".

Then of course, since I participating the competition and the theme allows me to create my own characters, I making use of this.
