As you can see, I am really excited to share with you that Darkstalkers is making a return. Udon has finally announced what I have known for many months now and have agonizingly had to keep to myself.

On top of that, I was asked to pencil the 3 issue mini-series! I am completely beside myself as I am a MASSIVE fan of the Darkstalker universe.

More information from Udon available here -

Also, check it out at Kotaku as well -

Anyways, I know posting here has taken a back seat, but I hope to rectify that in the next coming months.

Stay tuned!!

SF 2 Turbo #7

Here's a page I did for the upcoming Street Fighter 2 Turbo #7 issue. It's the second back up story I had the pleasure of working on, set in the Final Fight universe.

I penciled then inked it, using nib for the first time. I loved the detail I was able to get with it and plan to use it more in the future, but i do need a lot more practice with it.
Here's a link to the Udon preview page -

SF2 Turbo #7

I'll post the roughs and finals after the book hits the shelves.

Darkstalkers Tribute Poster

Looks like we're finally allowed to show these.

This was my take on the Darkstalkers poster. I wanted to show all the characters so I tried thinking of some unique ways to do that and I always kept coming back to this idea.

This also was a great excuse to draw Morrigan twice, from the front and the "behind":). I also thought it would be neat to have a painterly style in her "real" world, then anime cuts in the "cartoon" world of gaming.

This was done in tight pencils, then colored in Painter and Photoshop.

I will be selling prints of these at SDCC as well.

I will eventually post my rough-final process, so stay tuned:)!

Final Fantasy 14

I am really looking forward to this game. The trailer looks amazing and the website had this amazing piece of art on display so I pieced it together as best I could. It was done by Kazuya Takahashi.
Consider me a huge fan Kazuya!

Anyways, if it allows you to play as a Samurai again, i'm sold!

Digital Kontent

Hey everyone, back from MoCCA and had a blast! NY is an amazing city to have a beer or 7 in:). After TCAF, we we're invited back to Digital Kontents headquarters and had a podcast with them. Check it out here:

TX Podcast

Anyways, it was a great experience, even though I was a little shy... all in good time I guess!



Wednesday, May 27, 2009


Next week, i'm off to MoCCA for the first time. I had a blast at TCAF so i'm really looking forward to NY's show. I plan to have prints for sale again and hopefully something new too. Anyways, if anyone happens to be going, swing on by and say hi! I'll be sitting with the TX crew again.

SF 2 Turbo Backup

So here are the roughs of the Final Fight back-up story in this months Street Fighter 2 Turbo #6.

I start by thumb-nailing out the panels right on the script as I read it. I then scan in all those thumbs and piece it together into something a little more coherent.

Once that's done, I proceed to tighten them up. Sometimes I really need to sit down and flush them out better, so I blue line all the pages tighter - nailing composition and the forms along with placement of the word bubbles. Once that's all done, I rescan, tighten up just a tad more in Photoshop then send them off for approvals.

Here's approval-ready rough layouts:
The only revision I got was on pg 4. Udon felt that the last panel should be bigger and also be an up shot. So we decided to squeeze the top two panels together and enlarge the last panel.
Here's the new page:

I think that worked out much better. I had to adjust the angle of Haggar as he didn't feel like he was sitting on the same plane as Cody and Guy. A small tweak and I was ready to go.

From this stage, I print out the pages to fit onto a 11x17 comic board. Tape it down using a light-box to line it up, then proceed to blue line it. Once blue lined, I proceeded to pencils, using a mechanical pencil with a 2H lead. For smooth and faster outlines, I used an HB pencil.

Here are the final pencils:

I had a lot of fun working on this. It certainly was a LOT of work but in the end it's always worth it. I look forward to more of these projects and I hope you do too!

TX Banner for TCAF

This was one of the many Transmission X banners adorning the balcony walls at TCAF over the weekend. I really liked how this turned out and I will probably turn it into a poster for Fan Expo.

Monday, May 11, 2009


Well I have to say, TCAF was an awesome experience! I got to meet alot of great people and learned a shit load about selling my own wares. It also was my first appearance as an official Transmission X artist, so now there's no excuse for weekly posting!
I plan to do a relaunch of my Aardehn site for chapter 3 and make it more inviting. I got big plans and I'm stoked to hit Fan Expo in August! Anyways, to all those that came out and purchased sketches and prints, thanks a ton! You make it all worth it!

Street Fighter 2 Turbo #6

I'll be posting the pencils once it goes on sale. Go pick it up already!:)



Monday, May 4, 2009

This is one of the prints I will be selling this weekend at TCAF. Trying to work on my painting skills and had a lot of fun doing it. There's some issues with it, but gotta keep at it! hehe, Anyways, all done in photoshop. I will be posting the breakdown of it soon too:).

Sunday, May 3, 2009


Next weekend I will be attending my first TCAF show. I'll be sitting at a table alongside my fellow Transmission X cohorts sketching, signing and selling anything to do with my webcomic Aardehn. For the first time I will actually have merchandise available, so i'm really excited to see how things turn out.

Anyways, stay tuned for more announcements regarding Aardehn!

This was an old inked pic I did way back in the day. I love Darkstalkers and Morrigan is perhaps my all time favorite female character out there. She inspired Celeste for my Aardehn world over 10 years ago! sheesh, im getting old.
Anyways, hope you like it!
