Some News!

Hi guys,
I hope everything is going well wherever you are. I've several exciting things that I want to share with you all :D

Let's start with my submission to Derek Thompson contest on Sketchoholic. The theme is 'Godzilla'.

Title: Godzilla VS Ghidorah
Medium: Pencil and digital touch up

Here's the digital rough sketch for it (I still think there was something lost when I translated it to pencil rendering..)

Another news is my Iphone/Ipod touch/Ipad app! It's finally released!! I'm so excited about this. :) It's a compilation of 'enhanced versions' of my works and also never-seen-before artworks - 34 pages in total. :) If you're interested in purchasing, you can go here or the link on the right side bar. A big thank you to Bobby Chiu and imaginism family for making it happen!


The last news for today is The Legend of Guardians movie! The 2nd trailer for it is finally out. I was really lucky to be a part of the movie's art department. I look forward to seeing it in the cinema in a few months time :)



I hope you enjoy! :)

Update: I won! wow.. :) super excited! Some really nice entries this time around. I'm really humbly grateful to be able to win this one. Thank you to people who've supported me and of course Derek Thompson and Bobby Chiu for the great interview! Check out Derek Thompson's blog here. Really awesome stuff there!

Haven't been by for a while, and this is what I come back to! Really amazing stuff. Congratulations on the app (wishing I had an Iphone).

Your Godzilla looks great. The style of rendering has a nice retro feel to it which I think works well with the Godzilla-theme, not to mention looks absolutely amazing!

As for something being lost in the process, Godzilla's mood seems to change somewhat. Not necessarily in a bad way, though.

The movie looks great. Love this kind of thing.

Hi Jonas! :) How are you? Thanks for the kind words, man. Are you going to submit something for that contest too?

Jonas bm said...

I'm fine, thank you. Just returned home from a great six month stay at a folk highschool of design. The last few weeks have been kind of crazy.

I love giant monsters, so of course I'm entering :D Working on it right now.

You joining the upcoming Intensity Club?

Charles Santoso said...

Sounds great! Did you learn a lot from the school? :)

Look forward to seeing your submission. Good luck!

Regarding the Intensity Club.. really want to but the timing is not good for me, I'll be at work on that time (around 3.00 pm here) - my workplace blocks the video. Unless someone send me an email/notice me somehow with the topic.. lol :D

Jonas bm said...

Thanks. Yeah, I think I did learn a lot.

The timing isn't that great for me either. 7 in the morning here, and I've taken to sleeping in. If I do manage to get up, I might be too groggy to make anything worth while. But that's the way it is, eh :D

Irene said...

Congrats! The Godzilla is extremely stylish.

I think i'm gonna reserve a place in the queue for your autographs. :)) Definitely there will be a queue..Perhaps sooner than you think ;)
Can't wait to see the Legend of the Gardiens. Knowing your artworks and style i think you enriched the Gardiens' world even if you haven't got the position of the production designer.. or did you? ;)

Lesley Vamos said...

Fwah, so much to comment on - firstly , CONGRATS on winning, well deserved if I must say ^_^ Also nice work on the App... I soon as I get some cash I'm going to be purchasing that one ^_^ And nice work on the film, not sure you exact role, but the whole thing is looking great ^_^

Charles Santoso said...

Irene: Thank you, Irene. You're too nice.. I'm still learning hard every single day. No no, I wasn't the production designer, I was one of the concept artist for the movie, did some characters, environment, object and a few keyframes for it :)

Lesley: Thank you, Lesley! I'll share some promo codes for my iphone app soon.. so if you're interested, just let me know. You need to have a US account though :)
