share a dream

Lately i've had a hard time with my artwork struggling with a lack of skills and lack of confidence.

I have been trying many techniques but yet i never really felt like i could do any good and i would usually give up from frustration not finishing or dash the drawing off.
So i decided to focus on what i really wanted to draw and stick to it to feel good then draw good.

Actually i have always been into animation. i even took classes while studying basic drawing 10 years ago but i never pushed it to a professional level thinking that i wasn't good enough and eventually i quit drawing.

It is only 1 year ago when Kage gave me the opportunity to get back to drawing and taught me the art of caricature introducing artist like Stephen Silver or Pete Emslie that i realized that this passion for animation hasn't died and thanks to their inspiration i could work my way back to what i like drawing.

Therefore i decided to brush up my skills and seriously study character design style to one day make my dream come true.

This is my first artwork of the year using character design style.
the drawing is actually in progress and will be completed with an additional character and a gag that explains why Kim Jong II is raising his finger like this so wait for it...

Your comments are always appreciated so feel free.


  1. I love this. It's a great picture. I'm excited to see more of your work in this style! I'm trying to find a more simple style myself. It's hard work, but I think its worth it.

  2. thank you Derek i agree with you its hard to simplify.
    if you haven't yet then have a look at Sam Nielson's blog he had a very accurate post on the subject.
