The break at last

Hey guys, omg finally a break from school. But I can't help but feel like I should be doing something, other than study for my muscles test lol. I've just been working on so many projects that to suddenly have it all stop feels kinda wierd lol. Aywho, here's what my final animation of the year looks like, I still wish I had one more day to work out the kinks but its...satisfactory lol. Later days!

Paiting Assignment 1st Semester


Here's a painting I did for my Layout class. I enjoyed this one, I always liked doing conceptual pieces. I'll post thumbnails later but I seem to be having a scanner malfunction. The idea behind this was to take extreme setting or mood changes from our Storyboard assignment and make it into a painting...essentially. Enjoy and later days!

Expression Animation test

Hey guys, here's my Expression Assignment I've been working on. I guess there's not much expression right now, but the movement nonetheless came out quite nicely. Needs work but so does everything else right lol. Anywho I should be adding eyes and I'll post that up this mid week if I'm still sane. Later days!

Finally


Hey guys, so I'm FINALLY done my friend's pick, took me long enough. School's just been crazy and new video games haven't helped lol. Well here she is, Sydney. The character belongs to Mike Skyers while the image itself is mine. Enjoy...don't mind the crappy background. Later days

Sketch Page 2


Wow, it has been way too long since my last posting. I know I said I would have that painting done...along with several others but school life has just been crazy this year. So I guess I'll posting more sketches than anything else. Now that my life's more or less stable at least I can post stuff from my sketchbook lol. Anywho, I'm actually gearing towards having some free time to finish up some old projects, just to feel some closure, and get on with more, newer stuff. Later days!

WIP 10


Wow...sorry I've been gone so long. The past few weeks of school have been pretty crazy. New teachers, new friends, and a new sister-in-law. Yep, that's right, my brother got married and I was part of the groomsmen. It was probably one of the nicest weddings I've ever been to. Anywho, back to work now lol. So here's an update, again apologies for not having it done, but like I said its been busy. I redid the hair, I feel its a LOT better and less busy than before.

Thursday, August 21, 2008

WIP 9


Hey everyone, here's another preview. So the hair is giving me a bit more trouble than I estimated. That and I have friends from home up for Fan Expo this weekend, I can't wait lol. Anywho hope you like this sneak preview, later days!

Monday, August 18, 2008

WIP 8


Hey everyone! I'm back! I just finished moving back into rez for another year of College, can't wait! Anywho thought I'd share what I'm working right now, I should be done Tuesday if nothing else comes up which seems most unlikely. Later days!

Speedpainting 080608


Hey guys, return of the speedpaintings. I can't believe I didn't post any last month, but I'll try to see if I can do more. I want to get better at doing clouds, they're probably my favorite aspect of any environment, and in my opinion really sell the image as a whole in the end. Anywho, later days!

Tuesday, August 5, 2008

I'm back!


Hey everyone, I'm back and better than ever. With my new PC now up and running, which by the way was a NIGHTMARE getting set up, I can start working on some of the sketches I was doing in while offline. Also, I know I promised photos of my helmet, but I was busy working on that too so I should have some pics of it nice and (primed) black. Anywho, here's a little teaser of what's to come.

Thursday, July 24, 2008

Upgrade!

Hey everyone, there's going to be no new artwork coming for the next few days, maybe some pencil work but nothing fully coloured. I am currently in the midst of upgrading my PC to a monster machine! Anywho, been working on my helmet, especially since Fan Expo is around the corner, so its crunch time. I promised myself that I would get it at least primed by mid next week, so expect to see some pics of it by hopefully Tuesday if nothing in my random life comes up. Later days!

Tigress



Hey guys, finally finish this thing lol. Sorry it took so long, some shit kept on coming up and it was hell lol. Anywho, so this was part of a project requested by my friend Arvalis who wanted to create a bunch of characters based on rare animals or colour variants and such. I was thinking of making this into a print but I don't know if anyone would like it. Well I'd trim it down to make it more cost effective and such lol. Anywho later days!


*Edit - Hey I just fixed the neck since it was a bit sketchy....and it bothered me lol

WIP 7


Hey guys, here's a quick WIP for ya. I should have her done soon, but probably not until tomorrow. Yesterday I ended up playing more Halo than I should have lol. Anywho, later days!

Friday, July 11, 2008

WIP 6



Hey guys, here's a little update on a project I'm working. A friend of mine from DA started this idea to draw characters based on rare animals or rare colour variants. So here's my white tiger lady who's grey and not very tiger looking at the moment lol but hopefully she will after I'm done colouring. I'm hoping to get this one done before Sunday. Later days!

Golden Dark


Another day another post. Lame title, but I couldn't think of anything else lol. This is Samantha, she's a character I created back in high school so that I could dress her up in different costumes to try out, or to just experiment with (don't worry nothing "weird" lol). Anywho here's the final product. To be honest I really wish I did a better job of this, something just feels wrong. Anywho enjoy, late days!

Pencils - about 40 minutes
Colours - Photoshop CS about 4 hours
Character by me

Character Update - Aya



Hey guys, I don't know if I mentioned this the last time but I reworked Aya's appearance. Here she is in grey lol. Sorry, I'll colour her soon, but right now I got other things I have to work on. In the meantime hope you enjoy it, later days!

P.S. Here's a little about her (and her ears)
Aya is called a "half-wing," someone born of both human and Highborne decent. Following in her mother's footsteps Aya became an apprentice to a renown scholar to study ancient civilizations and cultures . Skilled with a bow, and armed with her mother's journal as a guide, Aya has set out on a quest with her dear friend Sarah to uncover seemingly unexplainable mysteries, including the sudden disappearance of her mother ten years ago. However, there is one particular factor she never expected...*cough*Migu*cough* ^__*

edit - Hey guys, sorry I just a quick correction to her face. Her nose was a bit off and so was her mouth lol

Happy Canada Day!


Ok so its a day late but lol here it is. Yesterday was probably some of the most fun I've had all summer, which is kind of sad lol. Started the day out with a 10k run for some charity by HBC, so my legs are killing me right now. Then hooked up with all my old buddies, went around town, partied, and finished off with the best fireworks show to date. I hope you all had a good Canada Day too lol, here's a little update! Later days.

Learning to Fly


Hey guys, I'm back with another pic. This one was inspired by Lastscionz on Deviant Art. I don't know who that is, but I might use him as a sort of "test subject" for future ideas. Anywho hope you all are having a good summer, later days!

My services coming soon



Hey guys, just thought I'd let you know that I will be starting to do commissions real soon. Mainly as a colourist for either full render or cell shading. I'll also be doing sketches like the following I'm doing for a friend right now who has kindly allowed me to post it. Right now there's not really a price but I'll keep you guys posted on the details in the near future. As an added bonus to look forward to, I'll also be doing some t-shirt designs later on. Give me your thoughts and I'll see what I can do, later days.

Mono Migu


Hey guys, yeah bad title but I'm too good with those. Here's my character again in a mono-tone sort of style. I've always wanted to try it out and it sort of works. Background could've used some work but hopefully it doesn't stand out too much lol. Anywho guys, I'll see if I can finally get some of the others characters out too. Later days!

Another Golden Oldy


Hey guys, Ryu 62 here posting again lol. I don't have anything new as of late as last week was a family funeral I had to attend to, but all is well now. Until I finish this new one up here's an old pic I did back in early 2007. Its of Migu but I first started to use that colouring style, and ya I know he's got a broken sword arm, but this was also before I took anatomy seriously lol. Hope you all enjoy it. Later days!

Killer Bee!


Hey guys! Finally its done. After a long day of cleaning up the neighbor's yard, doing random stuff around the house, and practicing some bo staff stuff I actually found time to finish this pic up. So here she is Cammy White in her Killer Bee uniform. I personally like this costume instead of the simple green leotard, but both are hot lol. Anywho, gotta run, later days everybody!

What a Week



Ryu 62 here. Wow, what a week its been eh. So many projects not enough time to post. Luckily its reading week, so we got some time to rest before storm number two hits us if you know what I mean. Me and the boy are working a Tyranid army, for those of you not familiar race from a tabletop game called Warhammer 40k. In other news, we got some concepts we'ld like to share but since our scanners are down, we got some oldies from our pile to share with you. Both are characters from a story I'm currently working called Dragon Shard-Chronicles of the Storm. The first lady is Aya, and the second is the main character Migu, enjoy! Later days.

Friday, February 1, 2008


Hey guys, its Ryu 62 here with the weekly update, and pic. Ok, so its not really a pic, yet, but I thought I would at least show what I am working on. His name is Katsuki Migu, and he's my original character from my own story I am currently writting. I hope you all can enjoy this WIP, later days.
