Saint Giong riding his Metal horse into battle with a flaming bush of bamboos for a weapon.
Saint Giong – a legend from Vietnamese mythology. He didn’t speak a word until he was 3. When our country was invaded and called for volunteers into the army, he started talking and the first thing he asked for was lots of rice to eat. After meals after meals, he stood up and in a blink of an eye, turned into a gigantic and powerful adult man. The Emperor made him a metal armor, and a metal horse, with which he rode into the battle and defeated the enemy like a walk in the park. When his weapon was broken, he pulled a bush of bamboos out of the ground and used it to fight off the rest of the invaders. When the war ended and the country in peace, he rode his metal horse straight for heaven and never came back. People made shrines and temples in his tribute and worship him as a Saint.

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.
The Vietnamese equivalent to Thor. His name – Thien Loi, literally means “Sky lightning (or Sky Thunder)”, and he’s the God of Thunder in Vietnamese mythology. Usually he wields an axe and guards the gateway to the Kingdom of Heaven, and protects Ngoc Hoang (The King of Heaven). This was done for Sketch_dailies but I’d like to push it even further in the design, this one is still a work in progress inspired by some stage plays.
A design sheet for the character Running Girl I did for a small contest held by the AAU Comic Book Club last Fall. There’s no result until now, I only know this is in the top 3 ).

I posted a sketch version of this picture before, as it follows the journey of an unnamed monk who travels through a fantasy land inspired by the world of Samurai Jack and Avatar: The Last Airbender.
It’s been a long time since I did something for my original characters. So here’s something for the characters I made up for a project that has never been scripted – The Woot. This is kind of a concept for a story where Bunnivor goes riot on the Time Forest, where Woot and Chitty have been protecting for quite a long time. This is also for the challenge from the AAU Comic Book Club, the topic is to do something other than Marvel and DC Comics characters.
