WANTED – Character Design

Wanted – Cowboy character design. He’s basically a hunchback bounty hunter with an eye patch, and he’s bald. His name is literally is “Wanted”. First assignment for character design class. Came out pretty great I think.

Inktober

All of my #inktober entries in one image. It was a fun and challenging experience for me since ink is really not a tool that I’m confident of using. But through this challenge, I did a lot of experiments, both in using brush pen, markers, new tools, and in opening up the fields of content that I don’t usually do. Follow me on facebook to keep up with more casual works that I do and post everyday –> www.facebook.com/hahuyhoang.art

Hepburn

I was drawing this out of memory, so please excuse the not similarity on the face. But yeah, I admire Audrey Hepburn’s beauty, even though I haven’t seen any of her movie, but I will seek them out and see them really soon.

Sunday At The Park is a short-comic project I’ve been working on for the last 4 months. The writer Jesse Young (http://writejessewrite.wordpress.com/) wrote the script based on the poem “Casey At The Bat” by Ernest Thayer, and hired me for the job, when he thought my drawing style fits the story the best.

I decided to
use this script in my final assignment for the Perspective class by Joko Budiono that I took last semester at the AAU and it paid off well. But not until now I got the time to finish the colors and let the professional letterer Thomas Mauer (http://www.thomasmauer.com/) to blow his magic into it.

So here it is, the first short-comic that I’ve ever felt really satisfied with.

Sunday At The Park là 1 truyện tranh ngắn mình làm trong suốt 4 tháng qua. Tác giả kịch bản Jesse Young viết cái này dựa trên bài thơ “Casey At The Bat” bởi Ernest Thayer, và thuê mình vẽ, vì ông ý nghĩ là phong cách của mình phù hợp.
Mình quyết định sử dụng kịch bản này cho bài tập cuối kỳ môn Phối Cảnh của thầy Joko Budiono mà mình học kỳ trước ở trường AAU, và kết quả khá khả quan. Nhưng mà tận bây giờ mới có thời gian để tô màu và gửi cho người sắp chữ chuyên nghiệp Thomas Mauer làm việc của mình.
Đây, truyện ngắn đầu tiên mà mình cảm thấy thỏa mãn :P.

On the ledge

This was originally intended for the Draw It Again contest, but then I realized that fan art is not allowed. The design is inspired by Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns.

Here’s the Batman piece that I did in 2008, 4 years ago.

Hope you’ll like it 🙂

The Doctor

I’ve been sucked into the amazing and mind-blowing universe of Doctor Who (2005 version) and now addicted to it. Just finished watching 6 seasons in only 1 week.

Matt isn’t my favorite Doctor, he has a lot of interesting expression and personality to capture into a caricature.

Hope you guys dig it.

The Fall

Continuing the long journey of The Traveler – the character that you met in my last deviation, this time, in a long fall to the great labyrinth of the fat monk statue (I just made that up).

Yes, I’m developing the character along with the world he’s living and traveling too, through these perspective assignment I’m doing at school (AAU, you know).

And yes, again, if you’re interested in sketches like these from me, wait till I put together an artbook contains tons of pencil sketches and black and white drawing I’ve been working on. It’ll be around June or July, no later than that.

But in the mean time, you can purchase my 2011 artbook right now on blurb.com, just follow the link —> [link]
