While staying in Tokyo I was lucky enough to get some freelance illustration jobs from Japanese developers. Above is the set of paintings I did for Bahamut Greed. It's been interesting experience working with Japanese producers...their custom and culture are totally different. They are always extra polite, replies quick, but somehow tending to have very loose concept in contract. Oh, and when you sign a contract in this country, you actually authorize it by sealing it. Everyone in Japan has a seal with their name on it for this purpose. I thought it's a pretty cool custom.
Anyways, I'm coming back to the US in June due to my family situation (again). I'll be working as a freelance artist for a while...till I run out of jobs or savings, haha. Wish me luck! (psst if you are a director who's looking for a freelance artist to hire I'm available starting June!)

Based on the creative feedback the effects are back to more subtle ones. Finally polished and I'm calling this done.
Spending days sketching and painting...and writing tutorial! My painting is accepted to be in 2DArtist magazine April edition, and they also wanted me to write making of the piece for LayerPaint site. Here's the link to the article...enjoy!

My former boss started kickstarter project. I went to the kickstarter site to back it, then I saw his prof pic. It was very nice photo of him.
Anyways, I'm on the 3rd sketchbook now. This time I'm focusing facial expressions. Also I'm preparing to the move back to the US. Lets' see how annoying it will be to have couple freelance jobs and moving happening at the same time :P

Slowly, slowly making progress...I was planning to finish this sooner, but now I got few commissions I need to set it aside and come back to it later. Probably next month!
I've been meaning to join Pixiv Fantasia since it looks such a nice excuse to paint something really straight forward fetish fantasy and/or anime style fantasy design. Here's my first submission to the event. Check it out here!
