2D sem 2 Project 3 – Zine – Research and executions.

I’ll start off with different ideas for my book title. as the content will revolve around book  title, its the most important thing!!!

  • The Little Book of Rejected Ideas.
  • Best of 2D
  • The Rejected
  • Behind the Submits
  • #WindStyle

Test of ideas(coverpage) and trying out the coverpage, although theres a saying “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” but this is a 8 PAGE ZINE. COVER is half(or 1/8 in mathematical judgement) as important as the content!!!behind the submits-01windstyle1-02-01


After thinking for a long time of what i want to put into the book, and got totally no idea!!!!!!!

browsed all of my past works and below are the possible pages I think I will be using, but this doesnt seems right, first time laying out a book and I realise i am really bad in layout after a long time playing with it, then i settled with just 1 picture per page so i dont have to worry about layout, this is a fail example, dont learn from me…. I shall retry again.

Try14 Try13 Try12


After a day of failure, I started a new day.try23page 2-3e page 4-5e2page 4-52

After consulting with Shirley, I notice that i have totally no breathing space in my spread, font choice wasnt good, lack of hierarchy in my spread, and I always know that i am really bad in laying out, choosing font, if you ask me to draw/compose a picture, i could do it without much thinking, then give me text, I DIED.







2D sem 2 Project 2 – Perspective – Research and executions.

Buddha in the point of view of Buddhist is:

For this work, I wanted to give Buddha an explosive pose to separate him from the usual calmness and stillness which is normally depicted in all painting and statue of Buddha, therefore again, I referenced superman SupermanJLBColorWeb

as superman is the “IDEAL” man which fits the way i think Buddha this piece should be, buddhis2

And tadaa! a SupperBuddha!


Buddha in the point of view of Jesus is:

I started this piece by researching on references and i came across this piece.


PERFECT! I will just draw them in manga style and substitute Jesus and Buddha into the picture, and my to the dog in the picture,


simple and sweet, i really like this piece as it is really funny!! with the shades and guns and such! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!


Buddha in the point of view of ADM is:
You Need To Study.

This is a straight forward piece, I found a ADM picture and redraw it, then i add myself studying in the picture and thats it!


for myself in the picture! i did not reference anything and i am surprise that my back view is so unique that everybody know that is me!!! it took me kind of long to draw the adm in detail as theres LOTSSSS of lines!



Buddha in the point of view of Alien is:
“Whats that?”

This idea comes from “Buddha in the point of view of Space is Omnipresence”, and since there is “space”, there will be Alien and even Buddha is present in outer space, the alien dont know who is he even if he is infront of the alien due to culture difference. so..

this will be an Vector file to switch my style within digital format.i really like the simplistic whimsical feeling to the picture i referenced,


For this piece, I used Live trace which I learnt last semester,(the BEST THING ILLUSTRATOR CAN USE!!!!) and removed the whale from the picture and edited my image of Buddha Gandhara_Buddha_(tnm)

which i also Auto Trace it and removed all the fine detail so i can get a vectorize image of buddha and switch the colour scheme to match the whole thing.


Buddha in the point of view of Monkey God is:

This will be the hardest among all 6 as i attempt realistic illustration, which will take alot of time from my experience, and after hours of referencing, I COULD FIND NOTHING WHICH I COULD USE! NO ONE EVER DEPICT MONKEY GOD IN THE WAY I WANT.

so, i simply have to create EVERYTHING FROM SCRATCH, the only reference I did is the headgear monkey god is wearing by finding what the historical figure LuBu(god of war) is wearing.

After hours and hours of fine tuning my image, i arrived at this sketch.

Monkey Godd

the sketch part is simple, but the colouring part is the most time consuming part.

so i did it slowly, bit by bit.

Monkey Godd2 Monkey Godd3Tiring process!!! the hair is the hardest thing to do!


Buddha in the point of view of a Lotus is:

The only hand painted piece to break all my link in the previous 5 work: Digital drawing, so this is pained using water colour to give it a different feel to it, i did not have a photo of the process as i was too engrossed in completed the work and forgot about taking photo. so yeah~

THATS ALL for my process!!


2D sem 2 Project 2 – Perspective – Final

The final work is done in 6 different style as this is a “point of view” project, therefore I think it would be better if the style of the final work are all different so as to take the project away from the artist(me) and the viewer wont think that the work comes from the same artist as I want to show different perspective so a single style wont be sufficient.  However, all my works are stringed by 1 element- Humor, by bringing things that would break the ordinary impression of Buddha.

Buddha in the point of view of Buddhist is:

I’ll start off with the the point of view of a Buddhist, as they are the primary “subscriber” of Buddha, they should take the first place.

In this work, I used a mixed of photo(background) and drawings(foreground). The the complementary colour of the sky with the orangy robe of the Buddha bring the focus to the huge flying Buddha figure which occupy most of the top half of the work, the hierarchy of Buddha is clear as the placement, the size and is “framed” out by the shining light, the “monk” worshipping Buddha in the picture is added to be small to contrast the largeness of the Buddha(imagine the picture without the monk, the Buddha wont look big at all)

The point of this picture is that “Anything that glows is holy, anything that flies are better than those who can’t.” so I drew a muscular Buddha in an explosive flying pose to break the ordinary impression of Buddha is a skinny/plump guy who sit under the bodhi tree all day.

Buddha in the point of view of Jesus is:

After researching about “Brother”, “Duo” and lots of “cool dudes” i found a poster of Man In Black 2, it is SUPER similar to what I have in mind – “cool, shades and guns” and in the poster, there is an additional bonus! the DOME SHAPE CHAIR THAT REPRESENT THE HALO OF JESUS AND BUDDHA!! THIS IS PERFECT~

So, I simply make it a black and white piece drawn in the manga style to bring out the COOLNESS in it, however I dont want people to think that this is an original work, I intend to show that I copied it off the original work straight and changing the elements of it, that will be the funny part of my work, its more like a parody/spinoff/fanart instead of an original work.

Buddha in the point of view of ADM is:
You Need To Study.ADMrgb

Every ADM student will know Buddha, because its tested, most of us studied, some died while studying (not literally I hope).2016-03-11 17.57.29

For the final work, I tried to cut and laminated the window to give it different texture and made the “glass” of the window more glossy to give further effect of there is a piece of glass there. gif below to show the gloss difference of the “glass” and other parts.


Buddha in the point of view of Monkey God is:

monkey godrgb

The only realistic work, Monkey God is always portrayed as magnificent, cool, powerful, agile, confident, playful etc.etc.

I’ll take away all of that. leaving the monkey god a set of fancy outfit and his Golden Rod, as there is totally no reference for this picture, this is really hard to draw and I spent lots of time to finish this piece, drawing the hair strand by strand, highlight and shadow, highlight and shadow.

The colour scheme is chosen to be analogous and on the warmest side because there should not be a cool element in here. The monkey god is placed around bottom 1/4 of the picture, heavily cropped body and the active space removed (the main subject moving/looking into the picture instead of out of it, but in this case the monkey god is looking out of the picture hence no active space) to make him feel small and losing all the confident

For the final, I printed 2 of the same piece on different paper(gold sticker and white paper), cut out the golden part from the gold sticker to give all the gold a reflective surface to enhance the overall texture!

Buddha in the point of view of Alien is:
“Whats that?”


A Vector art of Buddha in the POV of Alien, If Buddha is omnipresent, Buddha will be in space, however the problem is that Buddha is only part of human culture and so alien wont know who or what a Buddha is even he is floating around in the galaxy. SO! due to culture difference of alien, they will catch Buddha and do experiment on him and probably probing him too. the background is set to be space themed, using transparent squares and circles shape of various blue and greens plus white to give the feeling of childishness, playfulness and activeness. The stars in the background is to give the whole composition a set of points to fix everything in their place, it serves a purpose like a pin, imagine the picture without the stars, it would look relatively plain and the background would no longer look like background.

lastly, it is a triangular composition with the Buddha in the middle, the base is filled with white”bubbles” to counter the white of UFO and the beam coming down, giving the whole composition a sense of stability even if the UFO is flying and nothing really touches the ground.

Buddha in the point of view of a Lotus is:


The only hand painted piece to break all common theme until now – Digital art. Drawn in water color and the main subject of this is the heavily cropped laughing Buddha but in this work, the main subject is not the main focus, the viewers first look will be the Buddha due to the size, but very soon the attention will be drawn to the lotus flower instead due to 2 reasons

1- the contrast between the blackest black and the almost whitest white in the whole composition, sitting right next to each other.

2- Theoretically there will be shadow cast by the Laughing Buddha, there is no shadow on the lotus, suggesting that it is not normal, anything that break the ordinary will draw attention.

in the visual weight, red is heavier than pink and it is overwhelmingly heavier by the amount of red above the pink, the laughing buddha is also cropped to suggest that “there are more weight thats outside of the picture” also, the flower is “weigh” by the red from the top and surrounded by black which is the heaviest visual colour, making it compressed and have”no where to be pushed into”, making the lotus flower fully oppressed.

Repository – Project 2 : Soundscape

The rain splashes against their skin and there is a weird tingly sensation that they had never felt before, the sensation of the wind brushing against their skin so naturally, so cold.

Double A danced in the rain and totally forgotten what Theron told them “The mycoplankon essence will be washed off in the rain”. After minutes in the rain, they start to feel a burning sensation on their skin, the rain is highly acidic and they know they shouldn’t stay in the rain and started running towards what seems like the city as the rain blurred their vision. , as they sprint in the painful rain reaching an abandoned building that seems like a supermarket.

Double A entered and saw what seems like a diesel generator which you (Arisampat) tries to activate it and it worked, the lights turned on and you saw a big ass radio alike machine sitting right under the brightest light.
