Saint Giong

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.

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.

Isometric Drawing

Hi guys, long time no see huh? I hope you’re missing me on here.

So this is one of my first assignments at the Academy of Art University (yeah, I’ve been in San Francisco for a month now, drop by some time and say Hi if you’re near).

This is an assignment for the class Perspective by instructor – illustrator Joko Budiono – such a passionate artist. This assignment is to make a drawing in isometric with lines and give it some light and shadow tweak after that, using either local light or sun light. I have both local and sun light, but I chose local light for my own taste.

Hope you guys like this and see you soon with tons more of new art :D
