Indie creators shout-out: My Asian Auntie - martial arts action comedy.

If you enjoy 80's action comedy from Hong Kong, including Jackie Chan, and particularly Sammo Hung, you might appreciate what Art School Dropouts are doing. While I started following their channel after watching other projects they've done (a short LoK fan film, to be specific), "My Asian Auntie" is, if I'm not mistaken, one of their older webseries. Auntie (Joey Min) and her niece (Stephanie Pham) find themselves in the crosshairs of a local gang. In seven episodes, less than half an hour altogether, Auntie has made me laugh, cry, and/or question my sexuality. Definitely one of the three.

Once you're done watching season one, the next is already in production.

Titled "Yes, Auntie!", I understand it to be inspired by the Michelle Yeoh/Cynthia Rothrock movie "Yes, Madam!"

You can support it on Kickstarter or through the ASDO Patreon.

---ABOUT

Digital painter, self-taught (whatever it means these days), also sequential artist/writer. Born and living in Poland. Working towards improving my skills and making a living from illustration, cover art or game art (video or ccg-type stuff) and ultimately developing my own project, basically rebooting my webcomic universe into its third, and hopefully best incarnation.

That being said, my gallery is mostly fan art.

Some of the things I like and might make fan art of (no promises, I guess in a way I'm writing this down as a reminder to myself, if I can't think of what to do next):

TV/movies: Batman TAS and its shared universe (honestly I grew up with superhero cartoons more than comics), Young Justice, Agents of SHIELD, Daredevil, Jessica Jones as well as the MCU in general, Avatar: TLA and LoK, Studio Ghibli films, Ghost in the Shell, Akira, Black Lagoon, Vikings, Black Sails, Babylon 5, Alien, Stargate, Xena: Warrior Princess, Red Dwarf, The Incredibles, Wreck-It Ralph, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 80's martial arts movies (Sammo Hung, Jackie Chan, Michelle Yeoh, all that), Mad Max: Fury Road

Games: Warhammer 40k, Star Wars: KotOR, Diablo 2

---COMMISSIONS

Since my main computer has broken down, the maximum format I can work in for the forseeable future is:

1748x2480 px
which is A5 format at 300 DPI
(148x210 mm or 5,827x8,268 inches)

which is probably fine if you just need a digital file, not great for print. Unfortunately, this is what my laptop can handle at the moment.

Subjects: Doesn't really matter to me, but let's keep it SFW-ish.

Pricing and Payment:

$100 USD for an average full-color painting.

Halloween themed commissions at half price.

Payment through PayPal.

---LONG TERM EMPLOYMENT

As I've mentioned above, I wouldn't mind working in some group project in the game industry, as long as there's some financial stability involved. I'm not that interested in long format comic book projects that may or may not pay off, other than my own.

---COLLABORATION/ART TRADES

Feel free to ask, but I'm already behind on some projects with friends. I'm the worst.

---ART RECOMMENDATIONS

For a while I've been wanting to utilize my profile page to share some art resources that made a significant difference in how I think and approach art. Hope it helps you.

Ways of Seeing, ep.1 - a four part documentary narrated by John Berger, there's also a different version with a playlist, I haven't watched those videos though
The Da Vinci Initiative - instructional videos on working with Barque plates, which I haven't really tried yet, but I think the process itself is informative on how to construct and measure portraits; I've only watched some of them
