Dead Fish

Here's a dead fish. This nice surprise should be enough for 2 weeks of food, if Gimeor preserves the meat. By the way, Gimeor has been sporting a nice deep tan ever since stumbling upon this beach.

Getting busy back at work, so I won't be painting so many personal stuff from now on. Here's a sketch, in which I'm particularly intrigued by a girl who slept in the MRT train.

Look what landed on my fingers! Miniature Alien robots from outer space.

Prawnsusochus Crabilis

A tribute to The Iron Giant (a great movie by Brad Bird). In the case, his big bad metal evil cousin.

Off the coast of the Malacca Straits, researchers have recently captured amazing photographs of the long thought to be extinct gigantic crustacean Prawnsusochus Crabilis. Here's one of the amazing images. This gentle giant feeds on small organisms in the sea such as krill and plankton.

"Big Structure floating in the clouds". I wanted to capture a "heavenly" atmosphere, where the sun is shining brightly above the clouds. This attempt is by no means satisfactory, so I hope to re-visit this concept soon.

Lots of stuff

This was supposed to be an easy color exercise but slowly turned out to be a hard-but-learned-much exercise. I just wanted to paint a scary scene which has a door that this guy would think twice before entering. I found out that it's definitely not that easy to create a scary mood; the door's lighting keeps on becoming somewhat like "a light at the end of the tunnel" which brings up a positive mood. In the end, I realized that it's better to have dimmer lighting behind the door. Phew!
5th attempt (Final):

"Here's one featuring Dr. Loonie's wacky pet creations. He takes his pet for a walk in the park just to take in a little sunshine." This is my second attempt; the first attempt (at the right) didn't look like it's getting enough afternoon sun and the pet's gray horns were too dull. Didn't work for me.

Silver-Red giant falls to the ground. KO and you're out !

Gimeor's point of view before before being pecked by a big bird.

Just some mysterious looking steps that lead to a candlelight party. :)

This sketch below was done some months back while trying to create a Photoshop Brush that hopefully looks like pencil. It's a guy with horns as chins, long ears. You know, the typical Narnia meets LOTR types of characters.
