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.

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.

Ultraman

Yup, Ultraman, now in colors! This was a wonderful experiment for me in lighting, colors, and a few new stylizing techniques. Also, it shows the power of the computer when it comes to this kind of stuffs. You can take a look at the sketch I posted the other day done in ink in sketchbook and compare to this one – https://www.facebook.com/hahuyhoang.art/photos/pb.471650312872103.-2207520000.1395645021./652074794829653/?type=3&theater .

Monkey Goes West

If you’ve been following me, you’ll know that I’ve done a Monkey King picture a while ago. But now I want to try something new, experimenting some new stylization approaches, a new modernized design and I quite like the result. So I hope you enjoy it.

Babayaga’s house

Babayaga’s chicken legged house. This was a wonderful experiment with brushes and colors. Like some of you may realize, I’ve been trying to vary my rendering style a little bit to give it a more painterly feel compare to the clean and simple cell shading like before.

Mermaid?

I went a bit too crazy with the brush in this one. But good experiment is still good anyway. I’ve seen some amazing creative mermaids, so I had to do something out of the norm for this.
