006 | kunoichi kitchen

serving quality shuriken cookies since 1989.

bakers are ninjas too, in their own special way.

what was intended to be a simple sketch turned into another one of my long, drawn-out, monstrous experiments.

004 | i believe

that love is the answer.

for relationships brought down by other people's prejudices.

tried using one brush in different sizes and a limited color palette.

003 | radiance

i've always been a fan of bus scenes. like in movies, comics, or in real life; 'girl by the bus window' will always be as much a modern classic as 'girl with headphones' is. well, for me at least

expect to see a finished, pretty-fied version of this sketch soon. most likely when i scrounge enough free time again.

UPDATE! uploaded inked and colored versions. for some weird reason, i prefer the inked version out of all the three images.

002 | dare to fall

remember when you were in high school, when every little issue felt like an insurmountable barrage of problems brought upon you by THIS. CRUEL. WORLD.

well, this sketch is pretty much about that. you're not really as fucked up as you think. other people have it worse. of course, this realization would dawn on you 7 years too late.

post-bara-bara results:
+ concept: 65%
+ execution: 50%
+ mood: 60%
+ verdict: will work on this more when i have the time. i like using extreme perspective... maybe i should do more stuff like this?

001 | open yourself to me

first post! victory!

playing around with custom brushes. i've always been a default brushes guy, and use only a couple custom brushes frequently. so, in the hopes of expanding my aptitude with custom brushes and maximizing photoshop's features, here's a practice piece. oh, what am i saying, this entire blog is all about practice!
