Star Rangers

AKA Himitsu Sentai Goranger. Haven't seen this guys in 30 years haha.

I remember when I was in kindergarten and would always take out the permanent marker to make a Red 1 mask for myself.

My very life today
If I don't get some shelter
Oh yeah, I'm gonna fade away..."

Retropunk page 1


Channeling my inner Syd Mead/Tsutomu Nihei on this one and trying to play with more action to my usual "static" seinen layouts.

1-2-3-flats of Fighter Tootie!


I'll finish it tomorrow.
Hopefully, my pc isn't dead by then.

Kinda sick of seeing this... "Disk Boot Failure, Insert System Disk and Press Enter".

Back from the Blame! days


Drew this back when I was reading through the Blame! books years ago.

I was going over the comments on my DA poll and a friend mentioned mecha and bewbs and it reminded me of this.

Voldreider ...again


The specs was a bit of a tall order but well, it's ok.

What's difficult was I had to finish this while my pc keep shutting down when I save or when I open files and programs. Hopefully, the new IDE cable we used will fix it all up.

ANDROMEDA


There. Color done.

I got tired of waiting and did it myself,
which, I should've done the first time.

Live and learn.

Adding color to Yoko's World


Because she deserve it.

She also deserved the best my skill could muster but I failed that.

Anyway, I've been seeing a lot of Batgirl fanarts after I colored this one. I don't know what's going in the World but I'm sure am glad I caught the bandwagon from the get-go this time. Bandwagon on 3? 1... 2... 3... BANDWAGON!

Yoko Littner of Old


Somewhere, in her heart of hearts, Yoko Littner realized it was time to change to a new outfit.


This is me trying to make sense of it all; much to my chagrin.

Eye training



No reference(obviously), just painting from memory.




I wanted to learn how to make a glass-like effect when I paint the eyes and this is what I came up with.

It's still not there but, the war is far from over. *booming maniacal laugh*

Batgirl



I colored this for Lauren Montgomery because I love her films.

And though she doesn't like people touching her shiznit without permission... I hope this will be a welcome surprise.

Scud Launcher

Directed by Wolf, my 7 year old son
Animated by Jhomar, that's me

*Click on the image to see the 1 second animation




Wolf drew this in his whiteboard that my wife bought for him and then I scanned and edited it. He colored the background in SAI.
