San Diego Comic Con08 Part 3 (video clips)

Here's a sample of various clips I captured while at the Con. I think it gives off a little more of the atmosphere than you might see from a still photo.

For the rest of the videos, head over to my youtube channel.

San Diego Comic Con08 Part 2 (Toys)

Macross (better known as Robotech in the U.S. market) has been one of the biggest influences on my work when it comes to scifi robot creation. I alway make a point to stop by this booth so that I can snap the latest photos of what ever Macross toys and figures are available.

I just love the detail that is put into some of these display figures. I gravitate towards the sexy babes and the robots.

San Diego Comic Con08 Part 1 (Cosplay)

Here is a huge collection of photos that were snapped with my digital camera at the SDC08. I was really impressed with the amount of cosplayers I saw this year! A real good mix of popular and original designs. It's really impressive with the amount of time and detail these people put into their craft.

A humble reward for buying these two lovely ladies milk and cookies.

Twilight Fan Art

So under some peer pressure from Kristine, I finally read the book Twilight by Stephenie Meyer and soon to be a motion picture.

I think the book is fine, if I were a 16 year old girl. But overall, it wasn't my cup of tea, and I wont be reading the next three novels that continue the bizarre love story that is Edward and Bella. I will say, however, that it did resonate with me on some level and I am curious to see how they pull off the up coming movie. Since I don't have cable, I'm not seeing the heavy promotion that's going on MTV, but you can't deny the popularity of the books; so I guess theres something to it.

The image I'm posting below is my impression of Edward and Bella. After reading it, I really got a sense of the dynamic between the two 'lovers'. Edward at some point in the novel said (and I'm paraphrasing) "The lion falls in love with the lamb...". That one sentence stuck with me. It was like a light going on in my head, and it makes perfect sense as to why Edward behaves the way he does with Bella. "She's MINE" is what keeps popping into my head.

Kinda fun to do, really. Something that I normally don't draw and it was nice to do something that is a change of pace for me.
