Google SketchUp Test

3 hours of tinkering...

Tried Google Sketchup tonight. Very artist-friendly program. I've never had so much fun working on a 3D program before. Its very easy to pick up even if you have no 3D experience.

Spaceman Preview

Terribly sorry for the lack of art guys. Here's a page preview on my latest project in collaboration with Lavapunch. I've been working on this project for months now and I couldn't really say anything since I was working my bum on it.

My style has evolved tremendously since I embarked on this project. There's a lot of talented people participating in this collaboration and its a huge privilege to work with such great artists.

Stay tuned for more details!

Package from Rob Laro

Last month I purchased a couple of original sketchpages from UK artist/illustrator Rob Laro. I've been watching this guy's growth for the last couple of years and his works has always served as an inspiration to my ever-famished, artistic retinas.

The package was suppose to arrive a couple of weeks ago but due to my excitement I didn't notice that my home address was incomplete with my paypal account. What's bizarre is that it doesn't register my complete street address no matter how many times I edit it. I'll have to be cautious from now on.

So weeks passed, and I remained optimistic throughout. This morning I noticed a cardboard tube sitting on top of my mom's desk, and brought it up to my office:

Package from Rob Laro

And within it contained these lovely pieces:

Rob Laro's Sketchpage #001

Rob Laro's Sketchpage #014

Rob's works has always been fascinating. His current style reflects a very simple yet attractive approach to illustration. From his trademark painted borders, vibrant color palettes and sexy curves; his creations never disappoint.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg. I realized that he's also pretty diverse with 3D and knows way more than a lot of people give him credit for. He's currently working on something big and I'm very excited on what he's cooking within the confines of his workplace.

You can check out his works at:

Thanks again Rob! Now its time to buy some frames for these beauties.


Life's been very hectic lately. Nothing negative of the sort, its just keeping me productive and occupied. I'm terribly sorry for those who have been anticipating my next video. I'll have to prioritize and get that thing done.

I've got a bunchload of projects due in the next couple of months and it'll be something very new and different. Its so massive that I had to get a personal daytimer and set a daily, weekly and monthly schedule for myself just to keep up.

What is it? I can't tell you. You'll just have to wait and see :D

SkullgirlS Dev Blog

Our new dev blog is finally online! Many thanks to John Walsh and Shawn Coty for putting this together.


We've stumbled across a couple of obstacles on the way when we started developing the new site, ranging from life obstacles to annoying malicious codes that infected our test blog. In the end, we persevered and kept things consistent. I'm very grateful for having a lot of gifted people taking time off in helping us fulfill our dreams, for they too are now a part of it.

We still have a long way to go with the game's development. We've had tremendous hurdles in the past, but all of those have propelled us to where we are now. We're still developing the game during our free time while juggling with our day jobs, but rest assured that the day will come, and we'll be bringing forth a fighting game that no one has ever seen before.

I'm currently working on a few other projects on the side. Stay tuned in the next couple of months.

Environment Test

Trying out new brushes and texture techniques.

This took longer than expected but it was a fun experience. I'm amazed how pro environment artists can just blaze away making detailed paintings in a matter of minutes and have photo-realistic images in a matter of hours.
