Red Day, done in 2005, painted in 2006, post in 2008, certificate in 2009

I almost screw up my SPM Bio paper for this comic, am I regret?

Actually no, feel bad to say this but I never like Biology, the subject make me feel like a mad doctor trying to cut frog and extract their heart and liver just threw it around the class, it fun back in the old good day but in the end of the day I smell like shit and it make me feel sorry for the frog that I killed for the sake of science (so called).

Recently, (last year) I try my luck on this piece by submitting it to Aniwow! Beijing 2008 for comic illustration category and surprisingly enough, this piece are officially selected for the festival and it make me feel sort of like worthy getting "C" for my Bio paper (even my additional math are better than my Bio paper).

Aniwow entry detail.

Jebat but Tuah...

Been thinking about this piece recently, about continuing this character design into a short comic for the new upcoming Peraduan Bakat Baru 2009 in Gempak Starz. It not my first attempt, back in 2004, I post my work once but... failed...

I build a short story (about 8 to 9) about the final duel between Tuah and Jebat where the main character will be Jebat instead of Tuah about their friendship, loyalty and duty to the Malacca Empire and how all of it sum up into a bloodshed that ended Jebat life. The story will be mainly focused of the betrayal of Jebat and why he gave his life to Tuah to end it. Feel free to post any suggestion on this, your comment are highly appreciated.

Chan Kwong Wing = Ennio Morricone




Imagine Ennio Morricone HK version and he is as good and as genius maybe not as popular as the original Ennio but he good in his composed track, that who Chan Kwong Wing is to me, lagendary composer. His work can be listen in most of Andrew Lau movie like The Storm Rider (Fung Wan/Pedang Setiawan) and especially the epic crime drama Infernal Affairs trilogy. The track have been haunting me for year before I manage to download the full soundtrack of the movie. Here are some piece of the track from Chan Kwong Wing for Infernal Affairs part 2 and listen to why I say his work is lagendary....

Sweet dream... Sweat, damn if only that are the reality I'll will be the happiest man alive, no amount of money can buy that for sure. If only i can talk about what I dream to you guys but I am not an emo-wannabe-with-no-self-caution, so just leave it that way and I have tons of work and project to be accomplished rather that thinking about that topic here.

Better keep it to myself. If you know me well enough, then I think you know what I m talking about.

The perfect crime comic book ever made - 100 Bullets.


Have you ever think that what if you are given a gun, 100 bullet of "carthe blanche" and a revelation of a person who fucked up your life identity in one briefcase by a mysterious man in black only be known as Agent Grave?

What will you do?


That the set up for the story at first... A few issues later, A hidden organization that have pulled so called the greatest crime in history revealed, called "Trust", founded by 13 monarch family back in the beginning of British colonial era. Then there comes 7 bodyguard or more like a judge/peacekeeper/executioner called "the minuteman" to keep the peace between this 13 family from biting each other for more control in this organization. Agent Grave is one of the "former" minuteman who planning his move to seek vendetta upon "Thrust" on what happen in Atlantic City and gather all his army with his briefcase and a "password" to activated the other minuteman.




Now, that is just a setup. the plot? Well.... You need to grab a copy of this comic book. (recommended if you read from the beginning but vol 8, "The Hard Way" is my personal favorite so far).

Art by Eduardo Risso, and work written by Brian Azzarello are perfect match, they are ultimate partner in crime.

The series gonna end soon in April on 100th issue, but in here, you can only find the trade paperback. 12 book so far in the shop, expected to end in book 13 or 14 and book 9 in my shelf so far...

Once Upon A Crime.

Inspired by Kajang town, Once Upon a time in America, Wong Kar Wai movie (Days of being Wild) and somehow Infernal Affairs. I draft out a short comic back in 2007 and now it still in working progress. The comic sort of like my own personal project and someday I ll hope it can be published.


The longest project that keep on growing in my head, if I wrote it on paper, i guess the script have change 7 time from just 6 page short comic to 4 episode mini series but it still will keep on changing from time to time. The basic plot were simple, its a story of a betrayal of three friend ( 2 of them is a sibling) that... well, it will change again pretty soon, so no point of giving up the story. Last night, i just done my 30th page of the comic (the end of pilot is 32th page), it seem to be getting closer to a proper storyline now and i hope I will finish this someday.

Undone

I hate when this happen, it seem to be a curse that i can never get rid of, which is never able to finish up my own personal project no matter what it is (comic, animation and illustration). The main reason are my laziness and this is one of it, still in stage one and it frozen until now.


*Steampunk version of Peter Pan, still in sketch stage....

Slumdog Millionaire

Its a blast!!!, I thought The Dark Knight are the best in 2008 but I was wrong. Its Slumdog that earned the title for me. From Danny Boyle, a person who in charge of 28 franchise, Sunshine and Trainspotting, its no doubt that the movie going to be a blast for me but he did it beyond my expectation and perfect soundtrack.



The Forgotten Piece

The first assignment that i have that involve 3Ds Max, sadly I switch to Maya now and getting rusty on old Max, but those are the good old time...







Well, its not a perfect one for a beginner, but its my first step.

The mission.

Perhaps I can consider this as my platform to keep work and interest accessible to all my friend and myself as well. My interest would be comics, films, animations, 3Ds and anything at all that connected to those. If you do enjoy all the thing that i enjoy the most, welcome to the club but for those who curious, welcome abroad as well.
