Thank you Frank (2010)

::my tribute to frank::

Frank Frazetta died of a stroke on May 10, 2010. His voluptuous women and his brooding men not to mention his fantastic creatures have inspired a whole generation of illustrators. His career spanned the era of Buck Rogers and Robert E Howards Conan, he illustrated books about Tarzan and other characters.

Thank you Frank

Fancy A Cuppa Tea?(2008)

This is some work I did last year for Ares Enterprises. They asked me to submit an artwork for a vertical billboard, and above is the art that was finalized. But by the time the final artwork was finished, I had to change it to a horizontal billboard. Clients made a mistake, on what type of billboard they had available. all in all it turned out great.

An Island A Day.(2007)

I don't normally draw islands, because everyone from where I come from draw nothing but beaches and islands or a boat in the sea. I tend to stay away from the subject as much as i can.

I've been a fan of Anime, for as long as i remember, I was first introduced to Anime was when I was around 8 when I got a DragonBall Z VHS tape for a birthday present. I didn't know it was Anime, until much later. and by then Akira had all my attention. after a lot of years and a lot of art, I started drawing Anime. Starting things off here is a girl in a hot spring.

This next one is titled Blondie, I drew this when I got my Wacom, getting a feel for the pen and pad.

Here is another one which I drew while trying out my Wacom.

This next one is titled "Celestial"

Last one titled "Striptease"
