Madman Diaries: Blood, Blade, Balloon teaser photos

Yesterday finally marks a new chapter in my journey as an animation student. For the next few months I will be working on what I usually call my "production marathon". Yes... for animators like myself, you can't really just get away from your projects just like that and move on to another. For me, I really have to do my thing not just to get through it but to execute whatever it is with all my passion, hard work and of course just the right amount of skills.

Now, I'm pleased to present through this blog my official work-in-progress teaser art works from my thesis project, "Madman Diaries: Blood, Blade, Balloon" which is set to be released this December 2013.

I'll try my best to open a new blog soon. But this time, it would serve as a production blog for this animated project :)

Guardians of Exo Planet

Today is January 9 2013, exactly 10 days before Dream Kpop Fantasy Concert here in the Philippines. I'm so excited to see my idols perform in one huge stage. And as a tribute, let me share these EXO fan arts I did last year during their debut song promotions "Mama".

For this set, I used a slightly anime-ish and at semi-realistic art style to carry the concept and the distinction of each member well. And aside from me, being not so used with drawing anime characters anymore, I also used this kinda vectorized art style in contrast to digital air brushing which was my comfort zone way before I did this. :)

This is my ULTIMATE EXO bias, Byun Baekhyun with his light powers as guardian of Exo Planet. Baek is the main vocalist of Exo and is often called "Bacon" by international fans. He is also known as the Guyliner of the group due to his exemplary talent on putting eyeliner on himself :)

        This is Park Chanyeol producing flame bursts as a guardian of fire.  He is the main rapper of Exo and is also one of the most exposed members because of his appearance with some Girls' Generation music videos.

Lastly, this is the very aDERPable Do KyungSoo or D.O. as fans call him with his supernatural ability to control earth or land. He is the main vocalist of Exo alongside BaekHyun.

Hope you like them. Until my next post :)

B-Bring The Boys OUT!

Today marks the official start of my thesis production and the end of my vacation spazzing days. Lol... So to end my kpop vacation, let me share these Girls' Generation fan arts I did a year ago. These "The Boys" inspired fan arts are also featured in my printed portfolio which I did last school term. I hope you'll like them :)

"I Got A Boy" new year fan art :)

Happy New Year everyone! This is my first post for 2013. I've been having fun with my holiday vacation lately specially now that Girls' Generation has made their comeback after 15 months with their single "I Got A Boy". Well, some people say that they didn't like the song but for me, as a certified Sone fan boy and a music lover at the same time I could say that it's better to improve and make a new beat for a comeback song for these lovely ladies rather than just giving us, their fans the same thing over and over again. So in other words, YES, I'm satisfied with Girls' Generation's comeback single and it makes me rape the replay/refresh button of their music video.  Haha!

Here's the link to the "I Got a Boy" music video. Enjoy! :)


Now, here's my first artwork to welcome 2013 and Snsd's comeback :)

 My Seohyun fan art for "I Got a Boy" MV teaser. If you can notice, I didn't exactly copied
 everything from the teaser photo. But as an artist, I tried my best to fit the concept and the pose to my own style and medium :)


          Here's the original teaser photo of Seohyun for their 4th Korean full-length album comeback :)

 I hope I can do the other members too while I'm still in vacation. Thanks!

 Have a prosperous 2013! :D
