Dusty Triceratops

The purpose of this assignment is to paint on 3D model using 3D Coat. I tried to make a dusty triceratops doll. I used fabric texture and added some fur texture to create some dusty-old feeling.

It turned out quite time I will try on a more complicated model.


The purpose of this assignment is to make an animation of a phrase using radiowave effect. I found this tutorial was very hard because of the effect itself. It was hard to make a clear-readable word animation. So finally I came up with the phrase "REAL RANDOM WORDS" and this was the best. The lag using this effect was unbearable..haha so I didn't edit much.

Well, it's not so satisfying for me. Not so bad, but not the one I'm proud of..haha

IMAGE Production

The purpose of this assignment is to do a tutorial. Well, I chose a TRON Title Tutorial from the and added some fun stuffs :)

Played around with the optical flares, and had fun with the scores. Pretty satisfied with this piece, it looks cool :)

When I got the list for the first time, I laughed myself out. I immediately remember the Fallout 3 '50 American vintage design. And that's where I went. So I tried to bring the retro-grungy look for the design. It kinda fits with the twisted-sanity theme LOL

It was a tough job to mimic the retro design - which uses solid colors and bold outline. At first, I tried using Illustrator and Painter, which wasn't really good enough. So I went away and used Photoshop entirely, using the solid brush and layer style combination. It worked pretty well :)

I want to emphasize the fight and confusion in someone's mind. That's why all of the scenes are placed in front of a plain brick wall with intersection and harsh lighting. It shows the desolation and uncertainty of the person.

Every piece is my favorite. Haha I like the paranoia in "someone will hurt you" and "voice when no one is around" as well as the horror-cliche scene in "hurt someone else" and the comedy in "hurt yourself". 

Well, I'm satisfied with this project :) I hope they would be useful too..hahaha

Brush Artwork

The purpose of this assignment is to make custom brushes in Illustrator and Photoshop. Just created some random brushes here and there :) I didn't spend much time on this assignment because I was also doing the SLAM cover art. But well, yeah..satisfying? So-so I guess..not the one that I can be proud of, but not bad either..haha

SLAM Cover 02 - SLAM Desk

Another SLAM Cover art. This time I used NewTek Lightwave. Just wanted to bring the "morning" mood - where you read a book while enjoying a cup of coffee. Used some lighting, and volumetric lighting also. Reduced the quality due to the deadline..haha but anyway, it turns out pretty good.

SLAM Cover 01 - Pencil Knight

The purpose of this assignment is to make a SLAM cover. It's an art and literary magazine, so I made a literature fighter for the cover. Yes, he uses pencil as his weapon and book as his shield :)

I tried Painter 11 for the first time for this piece. I used Photoshop to add the adjustment layer and the glow on his armor. Spent the total of 8 hours to finish it. Pretty satisfied with the result. The proportion is somewhat odd..haha but I really like the scarf :D
