Did a repaint of a piece i've drawn in 2008. You can view the 2008 version here: http://joshlab.deviantart.com/gallery/?offset=48#/d1kch75 Of course, I prefer the current version. It also shows me how much i have improved.
100 years ago, a cluster of some unknown meteors flew into the Ekriex creating a huge explosion. The chemicals from the explosion spread quickly throughout the known land, leaving no chance for anybody to isolate the spreading. The chemicals caused many to be 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. A good number of them miraculously survived. These people find themselves possessing amazing powers and strange abilities; able to transform into ferocious war beasts at will.
Daikuk was one of them. Daikuk was having fun with his sister by the sea when the explosion occurs. It happened so fast that nobody was sure what was going on. Daikuk and his sister caught the disease but he had managed survived. His sister, however, slept into a coma.
Earnestly seeking for a cure to bring his sister back to life, Daikuk uses his new found powers and his human experience and combat skills as a naval specialist, began searching for an antidote. He soon realizes that he is not alone in his search.
Daikuk find himself caught in a war between two sides. On one side is the Fellowship of the Dime, they come together to seek a cure that can bring many back to life. They, however, were met with great resistance from a group of ambitious organization network, called Stromdread, who wishes to use their new found powers for far greater uses. That is, to dominate and subject the inhabitants of Ekriex to their ruling.
With these two groups fighting each other, this battle is no longer a private matter. Daikuk faces tremendous task ahead. With his new found friends, he worked hard at finding the cure and pushing back the tides of darkness that is to come.

Attended Night festival late on 24th August, and it was just wonderful to be there. I, especially enjoyed the light installation: "MIMOID II" by Stephane Beve/ Milosh Luczynski/ Philippe Rizzotti at the Night Festival of the Singapore Arts Museum.
It was really beautiful and seeing how the lights interact with the buildings was amazing.Someday, I hope to do motion graphics like that.
A 2560 x 720 after effects animation backdrop done for a fashion runway. It was screen on the white background, using 2 makeshift projectors to form a widescreen projection. Its a first of this kind. Very thankful for the opportunity to do this and hope to create more of such stuffs in future.
This is one of the best talk on storytelling I came across. Every comics and films tell a story but what makes them stand out is the element that makes them up. "The clues to a great story." by Andrew Stantons, writer of WALL-E, John Carter.
Feel free to share with any other story telling talks you have came across, or what do you think makes a good film or comics.
I have always wanted to create something to wear with my designs Here are 2 samples of it. It still requires some tweaking. I'm expecting to launch it in June. Hopefully, when it comes out by then, it will be wow! So do keep coming back and watch this space.
This is the recent addition to my sketch books. I try to use pens for drawing as much as possible. I have been trying to find ways to give myself excuses to draw more. I find that ideas do come when i'm drawing, not just observing. Drawing to me is like going for a lecture and taking down notes. Its artmaking form of brainstorming.
Let me know what do you think and I welcome your suggestions of how you give yourself excuses to draw.
Concept: The Stem Servers - Super servers of the future, using the concept of stem cells from plants to store data using the most tiniest fraction of memory space required by user. The process starts from users transfer the data into vegebio-sac. The sac will then be stored in the capiliaries of stem. These stems are stacked into a Stem Server.
What do you think? Feel free to let me know your own opinions by commenting below.
