Rooster Rumble FC Free Graphic Novel & other UPDATES

Hey everyone,

Here's an update on some characters I designed for Rooster Rumble FC.  I love this universe and I really enjoy working on new characters as they pop into my head.  The first one is Chompy, here is half chicken half turkey character.  The other one is an indonesian Rooster inspired by action movies The Raid and The Raid 2.  His name is I.M. Jantan.
I am also including the Character Design Free Tutorial I made on how to design Rooster Rumble FC fighters.
On a related note I decided to make my graphic novel available for free on my gumroad page.  You can get the Featherweight version of the graphic novel in a pay-what-you-want format.
I also worked on a pixel animation of how I envision the Rooster Rumble Fight Club Arcade Game to look like.  This is what happens when you have some free time and very little animation experience haha.
















Procreate Sketches

Hey everyone,

 A couple of months ago I was lucky enough to get an iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil.  It took some getting used to but I can honestly say that I love working on it.  Here are a few sketches I've done of some of my personal characters.  This is Jason of Jason Vs Giants, Nahual Balam, El Quetzal and Abeja Reina.
Here are the process videos from Procreate.  I gotta say, Procreate is a fantastic app.  It is so versatile and useful and the fact that it saves every brush stroke is so convenient.
I love watching these videos to give myself a better idea of my process.
I look forward to making more of these drawings.
Stay tuned.

Batman Redesign

Hey everyone,

This is a redesign I did last week.  I saw the Ultimate Edition of Batman v Superman so I decided to make the redesign.  I was inspired by the concept of a gothic batman.  More literally gothic haha.  I saw this image online of a guy wearing a mask, a cloak, and more gothic fashion.  I am very happy with how this came out.  The movie on the other hand haha, that is a whole different story.  I am not impressed by what they have done so far.  But I guess it is something that has happened in the last few I've seen.  Civil War was great but I feel I liked Winter Soldier more.  I didn't see X-men Apocalypse and it doesn't really bother me.  I don't know if I am getting tired of all these super hero movies coming out.  There's only so many times the world can be in peril in one calendar year.  Deadpool was awesome though.

Rooster Rumble Fight Club on Comixology

Hey everyone,

Just writing to let you know that my graphic novel Rooster Rumble Fight Club is now available for purchase at comixology.com  You can find it here:  http://bit.ly/1XCdtMK This is a very awesome thing.  It is the first book I submit to comixology and it was approved after a couple of months or so.  I hope loads of people can check it out and that they enjoy it.  It is in the Indie section.
I haven't started on my next project.  I have been busy trying to stabilize my freelance artist situation.  I have been sketching versions of the main character almost non-stop.  I want to create something I am happy with as I am figuring out the final design of the main character.  It is also helping me define some story elements.
I will post an update once I have some information to share.  For now, make sure to check out Rooster Rumble Fight Club.

Superman Redesign

Hey everyone,

This is a quick redesign I did of the Man of Steel.  It is not so over the top but I am happy with how it came out.  I am attaching the video of the making of process.  I enjoy redesigning characters very much.  I have to make the time to be able to do it.  It is better than doing fan art to me because I have to reinterpret the character and see him/her under a different light.  I was constantly thinking of the concept "Super Alpha Man" as I worked on this piece.  Hope you like it and let me know in the comments if there's any character you'd like me to redesign.

The Legend of Zelda - Warrior Princess

Hey everyone,

I just joined the Character Design Challenge group on facebook.  It is a fantastic source of reference for character designers.  I love character design and I look to learn as much as I can in the field.  This will be an amazing group to be a part of and I am sure I will learn a lot.

Their topic right now is based on redesigning The Legend of Zelda characters.

I decided to redesign the princess.  I was inspired by the Lone Wolf and Cub concept.  I haven't seen the movie or read the story but I thought it would be appropriate.
I envision Zelda like a wondering lone warrior.  She stumbles upon this abandoned baby (Link) on the road and for reasons even unknown to her, decides to take care of him.
I also wanted to play on the idea or concept of the "legend" of Zelda.  There are stories about this famous warrior.  I want to learn more about her.
I envisioned a great fighter but one that still has motherly instincts.  Like Cool Runnings says - A badass mother.

I had loads of fun working on it.  Hope you like it.
