Last year I took part in the Uniqlo T-Shirt Design Competition. I chose the Mario franchise and created 2 different artwork, each with their individual style.
The first is based on the Gusty Garden Galaxy in Super Mario Galaxy. It features my favorite tune in the game. The second is the classic boss battle between Mario and his nemesis Bowser.
I didn't win (you can see the winning submissions in the URL above), but it was fun working on these pieces, especially the second one. It has been a while since I created a vector illustration.
Sorry about the sudden hiatus to my artwork submission. This few months has been filled with freelance work and preparation for my wedding. I will try to find pockets of time to do some simple artwork. But if that fails, you will still hear from me after July!
Old man Logan caricature practice.
While it's not my favourite superhero movie or even X-Men movie (I thought DoFP was better, for the sole merit of being able to accomplish so much within the duration of the film), it is certainly the best film I've seen this year. I love the relationship dynamics between Logan, Xavier and X-23.
Did you like the film?
A concept artwork of an ancient Chinese military outpost done for an art test. From sketch to the final polished illustration. I had some difficulty emphasizing on the evilness of this image. I found that adding tons of red, especially on the windows (suggesting an ominous red light source emitting from within) worked wonders in bringing that idea across.
I have to admit. I started this painting before the announcement of the upcoming pirate nerf. Nevertheless we will still see pirates running rampant on ladder until the end of this month. Who will be the one in charge next season?
Been working on this character for the past 2 weeks, but was distracted by the Chinese New Year break. She is based on a concept artwork by David Kegg. The final model looks less stylized than the concept because I am aiming for something more realistic looking. Below are more process shots:
Did a painting of Gordon Ramsay for the Schoolism class I'm taking. Happy year of the Chicken! Original sketches of Ramsay and other citizens below:
I have left my job at The Good Mood Creators at the start of 2017 and have been working on bolstering my 3D portfolio. I'm focusing on generating more realistic assets.
Here's a 3D character game model that I've been working on this past week. The character is based on a concept art by Aleksey Bayura. It was sculpted in ZBrush, retopologized in Topogun, textured in ZBrush and Photoshop and rendered with Marmoset Toolbag 3.
✓ Awesome entrance battlecry and music
✓ Unique effect
✓ Surprise factor
✓ Great lore
✓ Overall hilarity
Leeroy Jenkins. My favourite Hearthstone card.
I've uploaded the rest of the Mekazoo artworks (both 2D and 3D) into the "Art" category. Be sure to check it out! I've also shifted the "Art" section back to being the homepage. I will be preparing to transit out of The Good Mood Creators in the coming year.
I'll leave you with a Dwayne Johnson caricature sketch I did yesterday.
