“The Chef and his Assistants”

Happy New Year to all of you out there!

Manage to squeeze some time out to work on this a bit. I like how it turns out, but there are more work to be done.

I often see hawker stalls having long queue, what if they have the help of little robots?



Work-In-Progress !! Upcoming next ~ The beautiful Nico Robin!

My one piece sketches are finishing soon (Or maybe not!). Drawing fan arts gives me drawing mileage and practice on the pens and pencils; while i try to come out with original stories on my own at the back end.

Keep reading up stories, and incubating ideas for your next project. Don’t stop scribbling.

Thank you for supporting my work.wip

“Santoryu Ogi: Sanzen Sekai
三刀流奥義, 三 • 干 • 世 • 界”

– Strawhat Crew, (2nd-in-Command) Roronoa “Pirate Hunter” Zoro VS Pica, one of the top three executives of the Donquixote Pirates. He occupies the Spade seat of the Donquixote Family.

During his adventures, Zoro has acquired many swords. The three he currently uses are:

Meito; Wado Ichimonji (formerly belonged to Kuina)
Sandai Kitetsu (formerly belonged to Ippon-Matsu)
Meito; Shusui (formerly belonged to Ryuma)

Zoro often wields Shusui with his right hand, the Sandai Kitetsu with his left, and the Wado Ichimonji in his mouth. .


市場に乗って, 進行中の作業
Équitation sur le marché, travail en cours

Recently, i have come across quite a number of friends and acquaintances who struggles from anxiety or panic attacks to depression.
I shared a note on my facebook which i hope will help some people. The link is here [LINK]. There are many helps available, people who struggle with anxiety or depression don’t have to struggle alone.

Once again, i’m very excited to be painting a little again. Although as compared to my fellow compatriots in the illustration industry, i’m still way behind them.
A while ago, a few friends that i know suggested that i try to paint more fanart pieces such Pokémon or One Piece. I think it is a good idea to do that. However, the problem with painting fanart is that, while it draws public attention, and you will notice a sudden spike in your viewers or likes, it probably won’t last long unless you keep creating the fanart that the fans adore.
What i hope to achieve in the long run is to have sufficient portfolio of ORIGINAL artwork so that people will recognise my style and differentiate me from the rest. It all depends on how you make use of fanart genre to boost your viewership.

Well, until the next piece.

Best Regards,
