Gun Ghoul step 4 and 5

Witchblade



Watching the anime series as I work.

As much as I find the women in the show attractive, the amusement for Masane's poor parenting aspect really pisses me.

Ayus!

Ganyan dapat ang mga banat! Hindi mga wala namang cultural significance ang pinag-aaksayahan ng oras.

Tired out

Work, personal sketches, family life, bad weather, etc...

Back on Monday with something new, hopefully.

The Dark Knight...




... needs a cold shower.



My second Batman spoof, here's the first one.

Not really aiming for guffaw here, just the excuse to draw that hawt, hawt Poison Ivy.

Oh, and blame it all on Dustin Nguyen, he's the best!

Natalia Kassle



My favorite Danger Girl, too bad it didn't last.

Earth X: THOR

l i t h i u m f l o w e r



She's so cold and human
It's something humans do
She stays so golden solo
She's so number nine
She's incredible math
Just incredible math

And is she really human?
She's just so something new
A waking lithium flower
Just about to bloom
I smell lithium now
Smelling lithium now

How is she when she doesn't surf?
How is she when she doesn't surf?
How is she when she doesn't surf?
I wonder what she does when she wakes up?
When she wakes up?

Gift Art Lily



Still in the tight pencilling phase.

The pencilling itself is fun but scanning and cleaning is a dreadful experience. I couldn't get the right balance between getting good contrast with the lines, removing noise while preserving valuable detail, made me wish I inked it instead.

Hammer Abbey



Just dabbling with comic-style pencilling (which I found surprisingly fun).

This is the best Madureira impression I could do at the moment haha.

Cannonslide


Didn't make anything worth posting yesterday.

Here's for today. This is also from the last page of my 9 year old Sketchpad that my wife gave to me back when she was still 4 months old pregnant with my second kid. Actually, it's not hard to believe it took me that long to finish the sketchpad because I've been doing my sketches on scrap paper all these times.

I just finished re-watching the whole Rurouni Kenshin: Shishio Makoto chapter and doesn't plan on watching the remaining arc because I think, the rest kinda jumped the shark, story-wise. I've just started again with Ghost in the Shell: SAC 1st Gig. Will it make any influence to my current train of thought and start drawing more mechanical-inspired pieces? Hard to say.

Been getting a lot of jokes from friends regarding the recent Ecchi sketch-barriage but, they're the first thing that comes to mind when I ready myself to do a sketch, truth be told. Something like your first love that you can't forget, haha!

Sight for Sore Eyes



4AM again. I gotta stop sleeping this early in the morning.

Anyway, the rifle is a Modified 20mm SA80 Sniper Rifle.

Onward!



Added more definition to yesterday's sketch.

Mad Max-y Barbarians, ONWARD!




Just goofing around with the pencil.

No more LCL 1




On my way to playing Ultimate Ninja 4 with my kids, thought of posting this first.

Fundoshi Dojo-buster!


She's my Naked Dojo Yaburi Avenger!

Hahahaha, so much skin around!! I might as well call this sketch blog, my "nude" sketch blog!

Greetings from the dark side...

Saturday Sketch



I love Saturdays.

Here's Rei Ayanami with longer hair, slightly older and slightly thicker.

*two thumbs up*

Paramisuli



She's my favorite blind warrior-princess.

Here is a colored piece of her that I did years ago. I should get around to making a new one, though.

The sketch of the day.

By the way, I'm just doing some word-play on the title. No backstory behind it.

Assault Ready


Ze kolored verzion of thiz.

More chicks with weapons




Eat what!?

Getting more risqué by the minute haha!

Daredevil VS Elektra



Blast from the Past!

I did this when I was 16 years old. Not certain, but I think I copied them from a trading card a younger cousin gave me.

Topless Babe + Katana = WIN!



Not too crazy with the big ponytails. But figure if I keep doing the same thing I like, my collection would be boring.

Ahh, to sketch for myself again.

Priestess Okuni



Another sketch before going to bed. Yeah, she's thick.

I won USD$500 for this character design back in 2000. The contest was AXN- Anime Hero Drawing Contest and it was held in Singapore. I relocated my family from a disease-infested town and bought my PS1 from that money.

The win was also very encouraging for me because I entered that contest after only a year of serious doodling and won.

Here's a colored replica of my contest entry if anyone of you are interested.

Tank Girl?



Another sketch to start the day.

Dumpsite / Valetudo




Just another silly old sketch I dug up and colored for coloring's sake.

Note the "moe" eyes... I never get to do that anymore haha. Good thing too, it's not my forte.

Kaguang Sketch



Barangan's right-hand woman.

DODOY: Slasher Killer



Dodoy is a sociopathic character from SHOTGUN, my old indie comic.

Anyway, why Leatherface first? He's got a chainsaw?? Because he's not near-immortal like our ol' pal Jason and Michael.

Franchise Killer III



Almost there, Dodoy ol' pal.

Franchise Killer II



Better than posting nothing, I suppose.

Thursday, June 4, 2009

Franchise Killer


It's the who's who of Slasher Films (at least, the ones I like).

Something I started working on last night. The goal is not to forget the "how's" of CG Painting while I'm still having fun with watercolors.

Wednesday, June 3, 2009

Traditionals again!







I've gotten back to doing full-color painting, at last. I've missed it so much. Shame, that the only thing that stood in my way was a new scanner haha.
