I'm very much used to musing at other places, but I've decided to use that bit of musing here on dA instead as an attempt to get more involved with the community here. XD
So I've been reading Gary Faigin recently in order to start mastering my facial expression skills and stripping myself away from "anime-ishness". In the first few pages, he has described how consistently we have often focused on expressions in our art because it may make or break the entire mood of the painting.

I'm sorry if I haven't been able to submit the next page of Polar Detective the past couple of weeks yet (After all, the suspicious Ambassador is up to something, isn't he?) due to severe work loads on my head these days, especially since my boss is on vacation and I have a crucial panting to finish (and to find a way to kickstart my art career).

In my previous journal entry I mentioned about working on a web-animation and displayed a teaser trailer. Due to lack of realistic deadlines, the project now requires you to help bring its glory. Collaborators will be credited! A great time to boost your page-views too.
Polar Detective is a web-series, produced and animated by yours truly, along with other artists, writers and voice actors. The story is about this one Sherlock Holmes-esque character (as a baby polar bear) who turns a new leaf to atone for his crimes of stealing food and
First of all, I plead pardon from my watchers for my constant absence. I do ensure, however, that it will all be worthwhile -- for you see, I'm working on an extremely interesting project currently that is bound to get your heart racing for more. For now, I leave you with this trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qL-KXNbwr4s
Beyond that, I do have an announcement to make: A friend of mine has recently published a Fantasy-Adventure book, titled "The Vagrant's Tale", which is now on sale via Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Vagrants-Tale-Clovis-Dye-Jr/dp/1463735359
