As part of OIC’s challenge to its Portrait After Dark participants to have fun and to draw and think “different” – Lilian suggested that we can organise a special session to get enough drawings to make an illustrated zoetrope. A total of 26 artists participated and many wonderful portraits from very angle were produced.
Lilian kindly enlisted her friends to help her record the process via video and photographs and also to “stitched” all the collected drawings together.
Here is the final video
Here is the “making-of” video
Special thanks to:
Lillian Lee – for the conducting the “experiment” with us and for buying all the drawings too!

This is an animated titling work for Discovery Channel’s TLC program about ” WorldRiderZ ” together with Chris Leow from Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific and a production team from Frameworks.
WorldRiderZ is a production that rides around the world to raise awareness & prevention against children Chronic Kidney Disease and organ transplant. You can read the info here and like the FB page here ( https://www.facebook.com/worldriderz )
The brief required a very child-like look and feel to the character drawings with readable titles.
This is the completed title after final compositing work by the Discovery and Framework team. Click and view on youtube.
1) I started the project by understanding the brief and looking at the footage and understanding what is required.
2) Next I whip out some sketches and propose some design ideas on how simple the characters can be. While doing so- in the back of my mind, I am always thinking about how they can be animated.
3) I started sketching with markers on paper but when I got the gist of how to make it happen- I switch to Photoshop and tune a crayon brush to get the look I want.
4) After the sketches have been approved- I do some test animation and get some feed backs. All the test animations are small b/w files I output as animated gifs.
5) Once approved- I start started to render all the animation. All final files were delivered as layered Photoshop/ PSD format.
I hope to do more animation work in future especially those with my original character designs.
This were stills drawn for a new documentary from Crime & Investigation Network about an evil sorcerer called “Sorcerer From Hell” – Ahmad Suradji, an Indonesian serial killer who murdered 42 women in ritual slayings.
Afew references were given – eg the photo of the killer and some background info on the setting. The rest were all imagined and made interesting by the artist.
The required style was supposed to be based on something with a FILM NOIR influence with dramatic lighting.
The task was to produce a series of layered stills that can be produced as animatics to supplement the other material in the documentary in a sketchy storyboard-ish style.
All drawings were executed by myself with some art direction and co-ordination from Mindflyer. Special thanks to Bull’s Eye Films for this interesting project.

I would like to share few iPad finger paintings with you..
i’ve 4 softwares – Sketchbook Pro, Brushes, Layers & Artstudio (havent tried yet)
about the workflow…well, i dont think there is any ‘flow’ in my workflow …since every software has different brushes and features, usually i use more than 1 or 2 softwares for each artwork, e.g. mostly i start with Sketchbook Pro then save the image in photo gallery, then import that image in Brushes and after working in Brushes i save the image again in the photo gallery and import the same image in Layers…sorry if it sounds confusing..will try to post the in depth info about all the 4 softwares soon…till then you can take a look at the following doodles..will post more, hopefully better than these since i’ve the ‘BoxWave’ stylus now
This portrait is from life….around 2 hrs.
some artists are already making history using iPad..have a look at the following link and the video…i bought the iPad just because of these two artists!
