Some bgs I painted for Steven and the Stevens! That cool zip pan is the handiwork of Jasmin Lai :)

WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT I drew those underwater temple BG’s when I worked on this show for like five seconds last year.

The brush I had to use went all haywire when I rotated my canvas in CS5 and it

Cool show tho.


I missed you.

Years later of “thing change” the school girl comes to see Beast Boy. And she tells the truth. 

Sorry for the bad quality. these are photos of traditional sketches that I painted digitally.





This honestly made me tear up. Imagining how great he must have felt that his planned worked and choosing that risk paid off.
I also feel like him and the model have such good chemistry, they’re always so kind and loving to one another.

Holy shit what did he do?? That’s rad as hell!

Since the runway was going to have simulated rain, he wanted to make the outfit become colorful because of it rather than deflect it. He sewed dye into the seams and once the rain hit it the dye ran! Very simple but super effective. He was one of the two winners of that challenge.

Absolutely brilliant. Holy shit.
