Short comic:2017-05-17

I tried making a short comic after such a long time. Please read the comic first before the description, and let me know if the message got through.

It all started with a dream I had a few nights ago. I guess we all have that one person for us, a loved one who went ahead of us yet still linger in our dreams. For me, it was my grandma. Sometimes, halfway through a dream, I would realize that she's not supposed to be here. That she's gone.

And I would end up waking with tears. So to ease the longing, I made this. This one's for you, Grandma. I miss you.

Draw again: 2009 vs 2017

Let me tell you a story about a highly insecure girl, me. 

Surrounded by talented friends and great artists, I felt like I was going nowhere with my own progress. I spent my time worrying about what I should draw, how to get better, and am I getting better or not?

Tonight, I found a book filled with drawings and prints of years ago. So I picked one and made a new sketch for comparison. This is what 8 years of practice has brought me to. That’s the life of an artist, I guess. You can’t get better in one day, it will take days, years to perfect one’s skill. 

I hope in the future, if this insecurity rises again, I can look back at this piece for motivation.

or to be precise, this account is. (Or is going to be.)

Been knee deep in work for the last two years, so much I could not find time to post updates here. In all honesty though, it's more due to me not having enough material to post anyway. 

On the good side, my small game development team had just released the first installment of our 3 part games, Celestian Tales: Old North on steam… . We did fail our first Kickstarter campaign back in 2013, but the second one that we launched on 2014 went well. Even better was the fact that we managed to bring the game to reality. Work still goes on, though, we still have more games to bring to life.

And so, I have some time to spend on personal and commissioned arts now. It's time to start posting stuffs again here, for myself more than for anyone else. 


PS: I have a similarly rarely updated tumblr account:


I am a dreamer. I'm more of an elf than a human, and think that age is overrated. I worked as a game artist for a local game studio.
