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 God of Thunder

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.

Griffin

Another sketch_dailies submission. This time it’s the Griffin. I’ve never done a griffin before. This was fun, and was a good experiment for my rendering style. I’m changing my style bit by bit.

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.
