Newest Deviations


First of all thank you everyone for your support and persistence to follow my artwork. It has been a loooooong time since I have joined this community, and I have grown up with a few of my fellow deviants here. I have to say, this site has a changed a lot since I joined. Its still similar in ways but most things are definitely different. I myself have changed in what I post regularly. I apologize for the lack of fan art I used to post here.

Ever since I went to uni, my life has changed quite a bit and my view on art is also quite different. Dont get me wrong, i still love Naruto, and I wish I could do more fanarts of it, but its been such a shift ever since I started working. I went back to studying painting and color in my free time, and I also did my dissertation in my final year in uni about color and light. So what I am posting here is just another quest for improvement. I've always loved manga, but I am very particular about what style it is. The reason I was drawn to Naruto was because it had a style that was quite accurate in terms of anatomy. This really helped me when was a uni because it made life drawing much easier to approach. Not sure if you have noticed, but even though I was drawing a lot of manga, I was still trying to paint things as accurate to the real thing. weather this be anatomy, or material. I think it was a good thing for me because even though I paint in a realistic approach, I can still stylize what I am painting.

I feel like cell shading was definitely one of my goals when I was doing them. Trying to understand what the masters in Japan do, how the animators approach them and trying to achieve it to its best. If I cell shaded something now, I think it would look quite different (not trying to achieve the screenshot look but my own style). But yeah, I have been super busy with life lately, specially with work etc. Its already 80% of my life. So trying to better myself at that is an ongoing mission. My goal is to be a good art director who has a broad knowledge in what I do, and this is what I am trying to showcase in my recent posts.

But yeah, thanks for the support everyone! If you have any suggestions on what I can post/paint next, let me know in the comments.

(praying to be more active here...)

Regards, and all the best,
