This is my latest work. A task from Blizzard China's distributor NetEase. I tried to use some of the traditional Chinese art style which is known as ink wash panting when sketched and colored it:
Chen Stormstout, the legendary pandaren brewmaster who just returned to his ancestors' homeland of Valley of the Four Winds in Pandaria, was enjoying his leisure afternoon at the brook bank. There's no bliss better than having a cup of fresh and cool beverage while crossing feet on the stone which served as cushion.
But then, the breeze shifted and the delicate fragrance of bamboo leaves was replaced by the odor of ancient wood. As Chen glimpsed the incoming visitor, he immediately realized who the man clad in monk robe with a string of spirit beads on his neck was.
Chen understood the traditions. The people of Pandaria were indomitable, competitive, and peaceful. This was an honorable duel. A fight to know each other's force and technique in martial art. It's how pandarens learned their progress and lessons.
Needless for another word. He rose up and cupped his hands with a courteous bow. The monk returned with the same manner as both of their faces smiled at each other. Then, swift as an hawk, Chen took a leap and crashed down with his staff as the monk parried the blow unhurriedly with his crescent shovel.
"....Years later, after the Lich King granted Arthas necromantic powers, Arthas returned to the grave where he had buried Invincible and raised his loyal servant into undeath. It was in this dark act that Arthas felt a sense of purpose. He believed that Invincible's death was not an accident; rather, it was essential to Arthas's destiny..."
i made my imagination to this work~~~hope you like it~~
It have been 4 months since my holiday to Japan. It was a 2 week trip and Takayama was one of my destinations . Me and my friends took a higashiyama walking course which connect all major sights of this small town. There're temples and shrines along the route. All of them are connected so we didn't spend much time on the main walkway. We got a bit lost and walked past this stairs which leaded to the big graveyard behind a temple. I like how the man-made things and nature seemed to merge together here , and how the various kind of lovely plants and flowers were gathered under the pine trees.
Just a quick update with the game I am working on Liege! We have been working hard to make something really cool , its been pretty fun having control of the overall art style .
Granted we are still learning and I know some people have their concerns about the art style . but know we are taking everyones opinion and we really hope we can create something that is reminiscent of those rpg we used to play as children!

Another piece for my final MA project where I'm trying to re-imagine FF7. Could've continued detailing this forever but I have no more time! Wanted to try out some more matte-painty ideas along with what I've been doing recently.
Here's my latest. It is the Magician Caroline (1/6 scale) figure from ORI @ E2046. I have painted her based on the Lineage II art for the Kamael's final form. I have also built a custom backdrop for her that is roughly based on the cathedral in a Lineage II elf vs. dark elf video I found online. The cathedral is made from plaster casts ... the walls themselves are just slabs cast using legos as forms. All of the cool arches and pillars are made using molds from Hirst Arts. I made the rose window in Photoshop ... I found a line drawing of a rose window online and colored it to mesh with Caroline's colors and printed it out on photo paper ... I attached a light behind the window so that it would glow nicely.
I've been in the studio the last three days, recording a cd for the band Coma Commander. It's gonna be awesome, so I'll post a link to the bandcamp once it's up! Meanwhile I've finished this piece here. Hope you like it!
