The bridge is aaout! Get in the chopper! It's gonna blaaow!

So there I was, stalking people on facebook, when I decided to give one of its apps, Graffiti, a go. Seems popular enough. Not a bad little program, but it ain't Photoshop. Still, I'm not one to blame my tools.

Happily sketching away, and the results is what you see below. Above is a slightly more polished version, with the help of Photoshop. You'll have to forgive me on the terrible design of the bridge, it kind of lost its' sense of scale because of that. I have no idea how they're suppose to look like. It seemed so much better in my mind. Someone willing to give me a short lesson in industrial design 101? Might have to leave it for now.

Needs more polish, I need more sleep, starving children need food, world needs saving. It's on my to do list.

Choo! Choo!

My tusk, 9 years since I drew the image below, and only now do I have the skills to fully illustrate my vision. Will it take another 9 years to accomplish the things I envision now?

Roughly 3 days total, started sometime in late Dec 2007, worked on again yesterday (23th Jan, 2008). Done in photoshop.

It kind of reminds me of that scene in Final Fantasy VIII. When you have to assasinate President Delling or something, by climbing on top of a speeding train with a blur of trees shooting by.

The sketch made way back in 1999, just after high school. Ack, I cringe when I see it. But If I succeeded every time, there'd be little sense of accomplishment.
