Hac Thi Long

Ms. Dark Dragon – female Vietnamese inspired pirate – Queen of the East Sea – one of my favourite assignments in the character design class I just took this last semester of Fall 2014. This design focuses on picking out iconic, recognizable, interesting details that contribute well to the overall design, giving it a fantasy vibe, and less about cultural or historical accuracy. Top left corner are some exploration thumbnail sketches I did that included a lot of research I did from various sources about Vietnamese attires.

The Cap’n

Cap’n from Popapocalypse – a comic book about a post apocalyptic world ruled by warlords who are pop culture mascots, created by my good friend and colleague – Matt Harding. This drawing was done to celebrate the success of his kickstarter project for Popapocalypse.

 

 

Sky Holder

Female Sky Holder (she’s a man in the mythology) – the original Vietnamese Goddess. There are a lot of Photoshop tools experiments in this one, and a lot of them are quite useful I must say.

Before there was even time, the universe was in chaos, sky and earth were mixed together, and no living thing could survive. That was when came the Sky Holder, she pushed the sky up with her hands, and stomped the earth down with her legs, thus, created the world as we know it, and allowed creatures of all kinds to grow and evolve underneath.

Holding Hands

Final for Intro to Anatomy – 2 nude poses, one front and one back in the same drawing. I used 2 reference photos from http://figuresfordrawing.tumblr.com/ (NSFW) and put them together, and that’s a happy accident that they seem to be holding hands.

This was done on 11×14 paper with graphite pencils, and the teacher kept it for reference. It was kinda big for my scanner so the image quality is not very good here.

Avengers Wars

Well, lame title, I know. It’s for another challenge from the Comic book club at my school – Academy of Art University. This time is to put Super heroes into a movie poster. I used The Avengers to put into the original Star Wars movie poster.
