Michiko Making Faces by batangbatugan
Michiko Making Faces
Here are some of Michiko's various facial studies and detail variations in her costume. I like doing these as her expressions and even the way she poses give her more personality. It also tells the model on how to project while in costume so as not to give off the usual "I'm just here to look cute and pretty" vibe. 
Michiko by batangbatugan
I sometimes dabble on character design every now and then, here's one I did for Canon Philippines' mascot character dubbed "Michiko" showcasing the Canon EOS 1100D.

The client basically wanted a look inspired by various anime and video game female characters done in a visual style inspired by the works of Shunya Yamashita. Her costume was also designed in a way that she can be easily be cosplayed during their events and conventions.

I actually had a bit of fun working on this one since I rarely do colors, thankfully Yamashita's works have a distinct color palette and are very pleasing to the eye. ;)
TETRAX THE BARBARIAN by batangbatugan
For my :heart::heart::heart: :iconwarse-no-miko: the most patient girlfriend in the world :XD:

This is an idea for an Alternate Universe Ben 10 featuring Tetrax, Myaxx and Six-Six as humans set in Conan the Barbarian's Hyborian Age from the works of Robert E.Howard.  

I'm a big fan of the original Conan the Barbarian movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger especially the dynamic of the three main protagonists. Basically, just replace Conan, Subotai and Valeria with Tetrax, Six-Six and Myaxx. :XD:
Tetrax would be on a quest to find Vilgaxx, the warlord who killed his family, destroyed his village and wiped out his people. On his quest he meets Six, a Hyrkanian thief and archer, and Myaxx a renegade priestess and blacksmith in Vilgaxx's cult.

I tried to use a style that is kinda similar to John Buscema's work on the Marvel comics Conan books in the '80s. But I think I kinda failed on that part tho :P

If there is still anyone out there left watching my page after my last post 16(!!!) months ago, Thank you very much! :worship: I will not give any lame excuses, instead I will try my best to stop lurking and post more often. Promise!

For those who are still watching my page, I :heart: you all with all my uh, :heart: =)

For those wondering why I just suddenly dropped off from the face of dA, I have a couple of excu-Imean reasons...

For the most part I've been busy with more digital work, and those stuff I still can't show off yet. And one other reason is Facebook. Yes, I finally have a Facebook page, and yes, I'm such a dinosaur.

I always thought I'd never bother with those social networking sites (I already am active in plurk) but ever since my dear sister got married and had her first baby I couldn't help but share my lovely niece's pictures all around :XD: So add me up!… :lmao:  You can also find pics from comics and anime events I've attended for the past several months.  

And the games. OH LAWD the games :XD:

Anyway, now that I've got some downtime I'm uploading some new non-work related stuff. I've decided to try to post something new at least once a week. For some reason there's something wrong with dA that I can't upgrade my account again, I don't think it's my credit card but I hope it's something easily resolved.

To everyone- my heartfelt thanks, I owe you guys a lot. See you again soon!

Hello! Just wanted to say, your art style is amazing!!! The western comic book style you have is just wonderful. You are so talented and I don't even think I could come close to your skill. *sigh* ^^; Anyway, take care. Sorry if I've been annoying... it's just rare to see art on here that's not anime or cartoony, you know? lol
