Come see me, talk to me, or see my artwork in prints; if you like it, you can buy it too =D

Also, I recently like to draw with my iphone. Posting it in:

they have cool layout in tumblr, that's the reason why I use it. =P

This is my final thesis film that I did for my MFA program in Academy of Art University. 

As an inspiration from early black & white cartoons, I tend to resembling something similar with current 3d approach.

What's Going On

This clip really warmed my heart. Hope you guys like it.

If you ever wonder what's going on me right now, here's the update;

It's been awhile since my last post. I've been busy working on my new demoreel. I really hope I could get a good job over here, it's tough, & I know I need to be patient and calm when there're no responses from the recruiters or whenever I got a rejection email. I need to rely on God.

My short film is wrapping out the final stage, music and sound are pretty much done too. I'm sorry for not updating my other blog: that I don't have time for it right now.

Anyway, I really like those test that I'm animating right now. Can't wait to finish it and share with you guys. Behold. =)

The Wanna Be Oddie Story Reel

A short film that I recently just completed.

The final version is not ready to show yet because the final music and sound effects are still in progress. I'm also still wrapping up some details and render mistakes.

For the purpose of job hunting, I edited a story reel that I put the 2d animatic, 3d layout and final rendering as to compare and show the breakdown of the shots, as well as to show how my storyboard transit into 3d workflow.

Behold for the final version! Hope you like it.

Storyboard- Mr. Man & Zombies
