Some Sketches from My Recent Trip

I just got back from my trip to Japan earlier this evening.
SIGGRAPH Asia 2009 rocked for sure! It was held in Yokohama this year. Will be in Seoul next year.
My days were tightly scheduled and didn't get enough sleep at all D:
but I tried to fill up some pages of my Moleskine. Now I need to sleep and fight this jet lag.


Sketching Fever

Sketching Fever attack the Kids. Moleskine cover.
Now I must study for my final exam >__<


Fall 2...

A different version of the story from the previous post.
Special Thanks to Pascal Campion for suggesting a different staging, maybe a close up, for the image I had.



(The color is washed out T__T)
A good friend told me to draw something cute and bright...
so I did something with this drawing below, that I sketched out a week before I was told.
Hope it meets with that criteria "cute and bright".
(Oh, if I click on the image, the color doesn't look that bad... on my screen)

Figure Drawing today

Roughly about 30 minutes, probably.
Looking at it, somehow I wished he used the blue robe he wore in the last class.



Just playing around with a quick scribble I made while I got a phone call from a friend yesterday.



I was out of town for a week. Managed to check out the first CTN Animation Expo and it was a blast!
Didn't get to animate at all, but I drew a bit while commuting.
This is one of the "pages" I had. Sharpie on napkin is a bit tricky... but it was fun.


Life sketches

I got coffee spilled on the back cover.. It was a very early morning.
It looked like a massive creature jumping for me. Called it the Coffee Monster.

Couple pages from the Moleskine. People sketches from life.


guitar and couple

I turned this in as a homework assignment for my figure drawing class few weeks ago ^__^ It's a great class :)
The idea crossed my mind while I was doing layouts and backgrounds and listening to a piano instrumental piece.
I thought I'd try to do something different from what I usually do.



Couple days ago, I just remembered I sketched something like this 3 years ago.


girl - brown bag

This girl was sitting in front of me yesterday. I thought I'd draw her when I got home.
I hate being sick. Can't be focused for too long T__T


Quicky earlier today

And below are the initial doodle and sketches on paper for the Masks piece before I jumped into Photoshop.


Strathmore 4x6 092309-101509

Some pages from my little sketchbook. From couple of literature and social science classes :p where the lights are on. Some are from when I was in the bus, at work, and one was during lunch before I started scribbling on my friends' to-go-boxes. What I saw and what was on my mind.


Happy B'Day

Quickly drew this out and rushing it, after realizing
today is the birthday of an amazing artist I met over this past summer.
It didn't turn out as I really expected.

There are spots that I should've done better

My monster is mad since I haven't drawn him for a while.




An illustration that I rushed in a night :/ and turned it for a class homework last week. I knew I could work on it way more, knew where the not-so-good parts >_< but deadline was deadline. Based on a quick doodle I made while in class last semester. I posted that doodle in one of my older posts.
Have you ever experienced that feeling?


"Haunted" House Next Door

When I was brushing my teeth this morning, my mind reached a memory of my childhood that I kinda almost forgot.
We used to live right next to a dark empty house for years when I was a kid.
Right away, I got the sudden urge and knew I have to draw it out later during the day.
