Editorial illustration

Editorial of Asian education.
I picked this subject cause after done with my last illustration, I just wanted to do something I can actually relate to....something I know.
The pro side would be- being a super kid that makes his parents and teacher proud.
The con side, which I chose to be my final, is the exaggerated version of how I felt when I was in high school.
I did the color study with color pencil, and they had totally different touch. However, I ended up using gouache and ink for the final.

The Lovely Bones illustration

The Lovely Bones illustration

I watched my beautiful sister running, her lungs and legs pumping, and the skill from the poolstill there- fighting to see through the rain, fighting to keep her legs lifting at the pace set by Samuel, and I knew she was not running away from me or toward me. Like someone who has survived a gut-shot, the wound had been closing, closing- braiding into a scar for eight long years.

Person Passion

Hey Joe

My MPT boyfriend working on his script. This is actually my favorite pen and ink piece through all semester. I got to play around with his characters in his story, and also staged things that meant something to him in the picture; including the movie posters he likes, skull ashtray, his cat, and a bong.

An illustration for The lovely bones

"Inside the snow globe on my father's desk, there was a penguin wearing a red-and-white-striped scarf. When I was little my father would pull me into his lap and reach for the snow globe. He would turn it over, letting all the snow collect on the top, then quickly invert it. The two of us watched the snow fall gently around the penguin. The penguin was alone in there, I thought, and I worried for him. When I told my father this, he said, "Don't worry, Susie; he has a nice life. He's trapped in a perfect world."

Sea sight it is.

Line drawing

It took me forever to decide what the sight should be outside the building.
I think I'll color it with marker or photoshop later.

Thumbnails for an untitled tale

The story is still in progress. Thumbnails are always helpful when it comes to developing ideas. So it's a tale about dragon, an old city built on the mountain which was facing the sea, villains, a curse, and a love story.

An old drawing from Anatomy2 during last fall semester. It was an amazing class which changed my perspective forever; I fell in love with drawing skeleton since then.

Some old digi works related to skeletons; Hero v.s Villian.
Ha I know there's so much to improve.....

Comic inking

These are from a clip of 30 days of nights, the assignment was to adapt a scene from any movie or whatever source and practice characters composition and create a emotional impact.
It was a lot of fun and did take me days to gt it done. It's pretty much the second time i did inking so there were a lot of difficulties and some parts i just didnt get them right...well that's just a part of learning. It turned out ok after i fixed it in photoshop. I guess i will do more action next time :p

Clothed figure

Some 20~30min drawing; the model was great and inspiring, so i tried adding a little story telling in some of the drawing. It was fun and i enjoyed the process :)
