Video Game Art Gallery Comes to deviantART!

Growing up in the age of pixelated Super Mario and Atari games, it was hard to imagine that video game art would reach fine art status. However, with games like Final Fantasy, Halo, The World Ends With You, Everquest, and World of Warcraft (to name but a few) more and more artists and art enthusiasts are embracing the relevance of Video Game Art.
:new: DeviantART is proud to present the new Video Game Art Gallery, News stream, gallery forum, and chatroom!  While we're absolutely positive that our community plays video games, we are also certain that Video Game Art is becoming more popular as a study, and we have many artists currently working in this capacity, or hoping to in the near future. It is with that in mind that we have developed a gallery to showcase those amazing efforts!!!! :excited:
First, let us begin by saying this is not a new gallery to post screen shots of your badass World of Warcraft character, nor is it where you submit to show off your ABSOLUTELY am

Portrait Drawing: Lisa from BLACKPINK
Work in progress video:youtu.be/MPDRUWZnZ2k

It was never my intention to draw Lisa until my friend suggest that I should draw someone famous in recent time. He suggested Lisa from BLACKPINK. I knew the KPOP group BLACKPINK but I didn't knew who are the members or Lisa until recently I made some short research to find out who they are. While 4 of them are equally well-received by fans, Lisa seems to stand out the most - at least within my ring of friends. At first I thought it was her Thai-ancestry that makes her unique among the 4 but after watching YouTube videos featuring her, it was her dance that was captivating. Not only her dance was fluid and full of energy, I like when she puts her confident, alluring and cute face expression at the same time. *Thumbs Up*

Anyway, initially I thought of drawing only one portrait (left). But after awhile I noticed that this reference photo doesn't looks like her... her flawless face resemblance those girl featured on the cover of Chinese novel, if you know what I mean. So I decided to draw one more (middle) so people would know it was her face. However, having two portraits didn't make the whole artwork look balance... so finally I decided to draw three instead, just to make it look more balance and complete. xD

I hope you guys like it, especially the fans of BLACKPINK/Lisa :D

Portrait Drawing III: Liza Soberano
Work in progress video: youtu.be/IpRKBHwokU8

This is the third portrait drawing for Hope Elizabeth "Liza" Soberano, who is a Filipino-American model and actress ranked 1st in The Independent Critics' 2017 list of “The 100 Most Beautiful Faces”.


As for the challenge, this is the first time I drew a model with a sunglasses. At first I thought it was difficult, but it turns out to be most fun thing to draw. :D (Big Grin)

Portrait Drawing: Faye Wong
Work in progress video: youtu.be/91XjFi6Ad0o


Faye Wong was hugely popular in the early 90's and even gained herself the title "the Diva" in Chinese-speaking world. I knew about her when she sang Eyes On Me for Final Fantasy 8. The music was lovely and beautiful. Then recently I started to pay attention to her again when I decided to watch Wong Kar Wai's Chungking Express last year. I kinda like the way she acted in the movie and so I was, "Hey, why not check out her songs?". And wow, there are lots of her songs were stunning, angelic and out-of-the-world (I don't really know how to express, but try listening her top songs... you'll know what I meant). With that, I decided to draw one of her most popular portraits of all time.

What do you think? I hope you like it! =)

Early this year, I shared my very first animal portrait on DA. In fact, it is my first ever attempt to draw an animal as previously all my artworks are human related. I thought it's either going to be an epic failure or total disaster but I manage to pull it off somehow, which to me is a big accomplishment :D

Initially I didn't expect it's gonna be well-received since my previous human portraits are mostly 10-20 favorites within a day. But I was wrong as cat is truly one of the Internet's most beloved pet! I received about 800+ favorites within 24 hours and this is something which I never achieved before in the past few years I ventured into art. Thank you DA community!

However, despite the good reception, my artwork also drew some heavy criticisms. It is my most feared criticism of all - I was accused of being a cheater and a thief.

Now, I understand that when accusation was being made, there must be something happened previously that irritated/digusted them, so frequently, that they must speak out so the rest of community wouldn't fall victim into it.

Although I encourage this policing practice very much, I still think we should also let the accused to justify or defend themselves. In my case, I wasn't given the chance to defend myself until I have to conduct damage control to recover my reputation. Nevertheless after I proved my innocence by showing them the Work-in-progress (WIP) video, I am glad that they did not persist their accusation further and one even give me a good advice! :D

Anyway, regardless of what have happened, I still need to make things clear for everyone to understand:

1. All artworks here which I claimed as "drawing" are basically hand-drawn from scratch using Adobe Photoshop CS4 and Wacom Intuos Draw tablet. In order to prove that I really draw them, I have created WIP videos as well as the progress screenshots. My YouTube channel is here: www.youtube.com/channel/UCGBcn…

Although there are not much videos for now, I believe these are sufficient to prove that I can really draw. Recently, I also put link to Reference Photo so you guys could make side-by-side comparison to see the difference. While the difference might not be able to see from far, you can actually see them if you zoom in closely.

2. The reason why it looked so accurate as the referece photo is because I used the Grid Tool integrated in Photoshop. Those who learned in art class or school, I'm sure you guys at some point are asked to use grid for drawing - especially if you're a beginner or amateur. Grid tool is really helpful, you should try it if you're like accuracy very much.

3. Lastly, I never claimed myself as professional artist nor I take commission from anyone. In fact, I'm not even a full-time artist/designer. I never attend any art schools, classes, courses whatsoever except self-learning from internet or YouTube. Basically, I draw simply because it is my favourite hobby, I like realistic drawings and I did it to pass my leisure time or to kill boredom.

Though you might not be able to tell or see it, every artwork has its own personal challenge and each time I manage to accomplish it, I feel very satisfy and happy about them. When I'm happy about them, I share on DA, hoping to get some encouragements for me to continue. I expect nothing, no monetary whatsoever, from DA community except for simple likes/favourites and comments.

I don't intend to make profits out from my artwork because I know I might get legal troubles or disagreements from art community. Even if I draw for someone, I only draw for my very close friends and offered them for FREE as a gesture/symbol of friendship.

Before I end this journal, I humbly apologise if I sounded defensive or offended those who involved. I never intend to hurt anyone nor to create trouble in DA. I just wanted to share my thoughts and opinions of what had happened recently. It is indeed a learning experience. Next time, I should always put the WIP video link first before posting xD.

Thanks for your time reading this journal and thank you for those who supported me these few years! =)  

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2019!!!!!
Animal Portrait: The Majestic Meow
Work in progress video: youtu.be/wqheJwDSZz4

This is the first time I ever draw an animal and a cat!

Usually my arts were all human/portrait. So this time I thought of drawing my favorite animal - cat, as my next challenge.

At first, I have no idea how to start. I try using the usual method which I did for human portrait - first I started with the eyes, the nose, and then... I don't know where to go next. The first obstacle is how to draw the cat's fur. So I tried different brush strokes and ultimately manage to find the one that resemble the cat's fur. My next best tool is definitely the smudge tool. Luckily Photoshop integrate such magnificent tool. It was this tool that makes the fur quite fluffy and thick. You guys should try that if you're drawing furry animal :D

Anyway I hope you love this artwork of cat. Everything was drawn scratch with Adobe Photoshop CS4 and Wacom Intuos Draw using photo as reference. =)

Lastly, HAPPY NEW YEAR 2019! :D :D :D

All the artworks you have seen in this gallery are drawn with Adobe Photoshop and Wacom Graphire 4 tablet pen. If you wondering where I got the drawing skills from, it was all self-taught. I didn't attend any graphic or art school. Everything you see here are all learned by myself. I learn how to use Photoshop by simply try and error on the tools and other features. If I wasn't sure on how to achieve certain effect, I go around Google or YouTube and look for tutorials. Sometimes, I do consult some of my friends who have experience with Photoshop.

Find it hard to believe? LOL. In fact, a lot people when they see my artwork, they couldn't believe that I drawn them by myself. But it happened anyway =P. So if you guys out there want to be a great artist, always believe in yourself that you can do it. And, don't be discourage when your friends did not believe that you can draw! :D
