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!
