I wanna be the very best...




...like no one ever was...

Hiya everyone!

It's been a long time since I last posted, 4 months to be exact o.o

Well I've been working on my portfolio as well as working on freelance to pay my bills all this time. A lot of hectic things have been happening lately along with a string of bad luck, though I'm sure something good would come out of all this gotta stay positive and hard working. :)

I've been studying like crazy and hopefully you guys can see it in my new work. I'm also going to be applying for more jobs right after I write this blog post in fact...wish me good luck haha. Also if any of you have a suggestion of where I should apply I'd be more than happy to hear them.

I'm also open for commissions, if someone's interested email me at: chunloart@gmail.com

For anyone interested here are my brushes: http://www.mediafire.com/?r937a4bxw0gep20

Here are some new works, revamps and studies. Enjoy!

Mmmm the Porcelain Empire ;)

A Kissing Party obviously
Then onto the studies...

This would have made more sense if I painted the table...

Flickr flagged me for this whut...

Need your opinions on this last one which do you guys prefer: A or B?



Also a quote that I've absolutely fallen in love with,


It takes fierce will to get ahead in this world.

The ability to take action. Take hold of your own life.
Turn it into what you want it to be. Create and chase after opportunities.
Good things may come to those who wait, but phenomenal things are waiting for those who want them enough to go after them.
Fierce willpower and strength.

Finally Updated + Print Giveaway




I know I know I totally suck at updating this Blog. But you can't deny that whenever I do update there's always more than one image up...maybe except the last one....

Well here I'm going to be showing some personal stuff I've been doing recently in between freelance.

Also I'm thinking about doing a print giveaway...anyone interested? Comment below on which print of one of my pieces you'd like to see given away and I'll tally up the most requested and offer that as a print. I'll have more details about the print giveaway on my next post then.

In addition I'm thinking about doing a series of paintings on notable dragons in mythology, due to the fact that I just love illustrating them nasties :)...either that or maybe Norse Mythology.

As always I'm always looking for more work, so if you dig my stuff hit me up at my email: enviousblackwings@gmail.com

It obviously only wants a hug...

Gimme a kiss and make this headache feel better...

Also if no one minds please spread the word about the print giveaway via Tweeter, Facebook, DeviantArt...or whatever your into. Just to see if anyone would be interested ;0

Till next time...

Happy New Year....kinda???




Hey everyone!

Happy new year...that happened like 2 months ago. Sorry about the lack of updates, but I promise to try and update on a weekly basis(yea I know I've said that before but I'll try my best XP)

Also I have something to ask of everyone following this blog along with those that have just stumbled on, if it's not too much trouble, I would like your honest opinions on whether or not to include some new pieces, that are going to be shown today along with those in the near future, in my portfolio. I really want to get a strong portfolio going on and I figure some honest (brutal) feedback would be best as I want to get some bigger and better jobs out there as well as improve the shit out of my self.Lmao

So without further ado I present you with this week's new pieces, hope you guys enjoy and don't forget to leave some feedback comments ;O

Also I was thinking of revisiting some old pieces and applying what I've learned recently to them, what pieces do you guys think should need a major revision? I'm thinking about revising my dungeon delve piece hmmmm...??

Here we have my very first environment(hope it doesn't suck?) I did most of it on my livestream HERE

Forest ©EndlessMark III   

Here's a different version tell me which one you guys prefer, as I think the first one's way too dark on anyone's else's monitor besides mine 0.0 Really need to calibrate this thing...



Also here's the process for those curious:


Here's a revision of a commission that I have posted before on this blog (I think it was the last post?)
I'm trying to get better with faces and basic human anatomy...am I doing it right?

...and to conclude this has been stuck in my head for so long haha

Something Something Something...

"If you believe that God makes miracles, you have to wonder if Satan has a few up his sleeve..."
-Michael C. Hall as Dexter Morgan
 
Ahhh, been watching Dexter recently and loving it :)

Been pretty busy lately with freelancing and commissions, but I should probably update before the year ends. This year has gone by pretty fast lately, improved a lot but I still got a long ways to go before I reach the level I want. 
 
Which brings me to my next topic: a bucket list.
nooo, not like a death list like in that semi depressing movie but more of an art achievement list for myself for 2011 that I MUST achieve at all cost lol. So far the list is pretty small but I'll add on to it later.

1. Work for Wizards of The Coast(Particularly for Magic The Gathering!)
2. Get into EXPOSÉ and/or EXOTIQUE
3. Help out the art community in some way
4. Catch a Pokemon in my backyard
5. Shot sexy rockets from my eyeballs...er...am I digressing?
 
 
Here are some pieces I've been working on: 
A revamp of Ravaging Forest wasn't satisfied with the prior incarnation.

Process

Commission for Endless Mark III
Commission for Endless Mark III
My Dungeon Delve Entry ( I'd probably revise it, not too happy with it)

Process
I'm still open for commissions if anyone's interested contact me at: enviousblackwings@gmail.com
Here's to 2011, hopefully a better year :)

The Power to Karate Kick awkwardly...and some new stuff, also brushes!

Wow it's been forever since I updated last! Sorry!

Things have been hectic lately with everything collapsing basically, painting seems to be the one thing I find myself going back to out of entertainment and need.

But enough of depressing my viewers time to show some new work, hopefully there's some kind of improvement as I've been trying real hard to brush up on my anatomy...there's a pun there somewhere. I've also been trying to build stronger compositions and getting more focus to my pieces, if anyone have any crits for my work they are more then welcomed. :) I want to improve as much and as fast as possible after all, which reminds me I might update this post with an art bucket list of all the things I want to achieve in 2011.

I also have got a Facebook Fan Page so if you guys like my work Click!

Also I'm looking for more freelance work so if your interested in my work be sure to contact me at enviousblackwings@gmail.com
Study gone array.

Process

For CGHUB's Drawing Jam

Process
For Endless Mark III
WIP for ArtOrder's Dungeon Delve Challenge
Something on my mind don't know what it could be yet but stay tuned :)
Line Practice...wow I suck at lines...going to continue till I hit a hundred 0.0

Practice on focus :0
I do love drawing girls XD
Practice Practice Practice!

Also I thought I'd share with you guys my brushes, they're nothing special just borrowed brushes from Jaime Jones, Ditlev, and some that I created. Have fun and experiment! Brushes!

I think I should do some environments might be fun...

So I'll start out with some of my studies:


So far I got 50 figures(+ Batman LOL) going for 100 soon just about 15 figures a day.


Some Face Studies, Hope you can at least tell who they are aha:


Here's my Dhole for ArtOrder's Lovecraft Creature Lab, had a lot of fun with this one, everyone should check it out amazing entries there!


A WIP I've been working on since forever notice something familiar??


Some works that I haven't posted on here yet



Here's a PSD file setup by Alexnegrea, it's pretty cool it's basically a setup
base for pieces that was inspired by FZD School Design

Last but not least I googled myself just to see what's up, and it appears that someone with the same name as me got the first 2 top searches >8(



Also keep an eye on the blog I'll have a process tutorial soon, hope everyone is well and enjoy the song :)

First Post is First?!?!


Hey all, My name is Chun Lo I'm a freelance Illustrator and lover of all things to do with art!
This is the first time I have ever blogged so forgive me for inconsistencies in my posts.
