MoCCA Artfest 2014
Man what a great little festival this turned out to be. Always a good time going to a festival supporting the smaller artists with such amazing creativity. Totally surprised that the attendance has doubled this year, making quite a crowd besides the huge charlie brown balloon hovering above the festival inside. Managed to buy some great stuff over there including Scott C.’s Amazing Everything. Also recommend checking out Rob Kirby’s Tablegeddon for those who have partake in tabling at a convention of any sort, big or small.
Afterwards, I just hung out with my dear older sister running around in new york, witnessing a public pillow fight in Washington Square, and hung out in Central Park. Overall, a good weekend.
Dare2Draw March 2014
It’s been a while since I’ve done any sort of life drawing and luckily yesterday in NYC was the monthly Dare2Draw session. Basically the organization hosts 4 hours of comic book fun for anybody with a passion of drawing mostly starting out doing life drawing with models that are costumed and may wield props half the time. They vary a bit since they start off with 1 minute poses, then boost it up to 5 and then one full 10 minute pose. Also the guest speaker turned out to be Cliff Chiang, currently working for DC comics especially known for his work on the New 52 Wonder Woman series. Besides the life drawing and the lecture there is the “Quick Draw” contest. For 30 minutes you have to draw, ink and maybe color something based on the month’s theme which in this case was pirates. Carefully selected by the staff and guest speaker winners of said contest can win over $100 worth of art supplies including box set of copic markers, drawing pads, ink brushes, etc. all wrapped up in a nice package plus exclusive autographed work from the guest speaker.
Overall, I had a fun time doing it. Can’t wait till next month.
Just some doodles based on the latest episode of E-heroes.
Recently been playing alot of Metal Slug 3 on steam. It’s still enjoyable now as it was in the arcades when I was a kid. Though the only downside to the Steam version is the lack of the console exclusive mini games like “Fat Island” and “Board the Mothership”. Otherwise great to pick up and even play with a friend online.
A little something for my friend AtroxChobatsu. Watch out for shark puppies!
A little something I’m currently working on to keep my skills entact. It will be finished soon.
Looking back into my sketchbook, I forgot I had these Namco related doodles based on the recent webseries such as Bravoman and Mappy. Also taking my blimpdog productions mascot a bit further, trying to make these into usable emoticons somewhere. Not sure if they should be static or somewhat animated.
Yeesh, when’s the last time I’ve used this to post my art? *blows dust off* Not totally dead, though I’ve been pretty busy around this time of the month. Turned 25, starting a new boxing regiment, lifeguard tryouts and hopefully some chance of getting another animation gig.
Though looking at tumblr along with my website and my dust covered youtube channel, it totally needs a makeover.
so that’s all for now, more stuff on the way.
