Adu Panco

Ink by Kendra, colors by me.

This illustration are using a method I never tried before. First, Kendra drew the line arts on two sheet of photocopy papers—any kind you can get. He scanned the pieces then, using a laser jet printer, I printed it on Carson paper 160g. Lastly I water colored it.

Kendra colored it with Photoshop for the published version.

Not bad, ay?

Sketchbook 2008 09 25

Few sketches before I went to Hong Kong. Showing a good use of brush pen. Unfortunately the pens aren't always available in art supply store. Sucks!

Sketchbook 2008 09 19 (updated)

This is a sketch for my friend in New York. She's writing a children story book about a leaf that delayed the winter. I like story. Full of thoughts and emotions.

I'm having some trouble in the composition process of the illustrations. The angle and the range of the repeated objects, mostly.

Back to Business!

Hi everyone!

After the marriage ceremonies, visiting families, parties, etc., now I'm back to fill this blog with posts. Since I didn't have the time to do any sketches almost two months back, so I don't have anything but the invitation card to share with you guys.

I also would like to honor for whom fasting in this Ramadan.

So, see you next post!

Marriage Announcement

Boys and Girls, Ladies and Gents! Friends and families!

In this precious time, we are happy to announce you of our marriage, which had been registered under the Marriage Ordinance of Hong Kong on 20th of August 2008. We also have had the honor to pledge our bond in front of God by Muslim and Christian ceremonies on 23rd of August 2008.

We would like to thank you for all your support in anyway possible, and also humbly apologize for not having the luxury of inviting you to the ceremonies.

We believe that the most important part of a marriage lay on the path after the wedding ceremonies and we are sure that your prayers will be our blessing along the way. Thank you.

Sacha and Moerat

This is the picture of us and the guys at the 24th....

Sneak Peak: Amazing Day

Just to keep you guys updated about what I'm doing when this blog seems to be frozen. It's been long and exhausting days these few months. I just can't wait to finish this 'hullabaloo', even though I waited so long for it.

Twisted Ankle

Shit happens, huh? I twisted my ankle when I was playing my regular basket ball game about two weeks ago. One of my worst pain I ever felt. It's not the ankle that annoys me but the immobility.

The Celtics won the NBA 2007/2008 Championship! Woo hoo! The Celtics defense brought the trophy to Boston. I always believe in the team that has good defense.

Meanwhile, I won't be able to post regularly as usual. I'm getting married! Yeah!

Sketchbook 2008 05 23

A scratch of Wacom. Do any of you have a "Time Extending" machine? I'm wondering why the hell do I always feel that time is not on my side.

Hey! I'm going to Mount Gede this Sunday. Some say, it's freezing this time of year. Icy cold.

And I will have something B-I-G this year. You just have to wait to know what it is. But some of you may already know.... I don't know.

I tried an approach which I never tried before and the outcome is beyond my expectation. When I was making this illustration, I was unable to put my emotions in the composition. So the poses look very dull. The only emotion that, I think, really works is only the color composition.

Sketchbook 2008 03 12

Kenalan saya ada yang suka nulis cerita dan suka komik, tapi tidak ahli menggambar komik. Dia lalu menyerahkan beberapa cerita ke saya. Dengan 'bebas' saya mengadaptasi cerita yang ia buat menjadi komik. Untuk cerita yang pendek, saya berencana untuk membuat komik yang fully painted. Tidak ada alasan tertentu, eksperimen saja.

Ini lah beberapa sketsa dan cuplikannya:

One of my colleague like to writes stories and reads comics, but he doesn't draw comic. Then, he handed me a few stories. I 'freely' adapt the stories he made to comics. For the short stories, I plan to fully paint them. I don't have any particular reason, I'll be just experiments.

These are the sketches and thumbnails:

No excuses for lack of updates. Damn, a lot of things consume my time these two weeks. I hope next week, everything will not be so punishing.

Sketchbook 2008 02 22

Eksperimen dengan jalur dan bentuk balon udara.

An experiment on balloons.

Beberapa karakter yang mungkin bisa dipakai untuk komik saya berikutnya. Skripnya sudah ada—walaupun sama sekali bukan skrip sebenarnya. Yang terakhir, hampir pasti dipakai.

Few character that might be used for my next comic. The script is already there—even though it doesn't look like one. I almost certain to use the last character.

Tadinya, rumah yang digambar di panel pertama akan menjadi setting di komik yang saya sebut tadi. Kemudian tangan saya malah ngelantur menggambar cerita yang lain—cerita yang sudah lama dipendam.

The house in the first panel would be a study on the setting in the comic I mentioned earlier. Later on, my hands uncontrollably was drawing another story—a story long forgotten.

P.S. Today is my grandma's birthday!

Kindle E-Reader (updated)

Ilustrasi soal digital-book reader. Gadget keren. Kalo bisa baca komik, itu baru mantap!

An illustration about digital-book reader. Nice gadget. In the near future, I wonder if it could read comic books to? Then, it would be awesome!

Inilah illustrasi yang sudah diletakkan dalam layout. Hasil akhirnya boleh dibilang jelek. Yah, kadang-kadang hal busuk bisa terjadi.

And that would be the illustration in the magazine's layout. I don't really like the way it layed out. Sometime shit happen, right?
