great pieces!
I esp dig the second one!
really lovely subtle tones

Jonas bm said...

Love them both, but the first one in particular. Really funny and action packed. Digging the style of the little men. Speaking of style, your second entry is full of it - it's cool what you can do with pencils, the clean shapes I mean. How big do you work?

Well, as I recall, you were the people's choice - that's something, though winning isn't everything :D

Althea Aseoche said...

haahha you know, at this rate, you could probably start a gallery of all the prizes you win. XP

Great job though! Are you thinking of putting together an illustration book to sell at supanova or something?

Carrie Rodriguez said...

Great work CHarles :) I'm really diggin' the traditional piece :)

Charles Santoso said...

Jeffrey Lai: Thanks a lot, man! Your pencil works rock! :D

Jonas: Thanks for the support, man. yes, winning is definitely not everything :D I really had fun creating those images.. that what is important in the end. For this one, I worked quite small, because of the small timeframe. The original piece is only 7.5 x 9.5 cm.

Althea: hehe nah.. not yet :D regarding illustration book.. yes, I would love to create something like that at one stage :) Thanks, Althea.

Carrie: Thanks, Carrie :)

I love these pieces... I didn't realize until the end that they were both yours, haha. I voted for the first one, and the second one was in my top 3. I love the textures and the cutout-like style... it's really beautiful.

I also want to say... I've been jealously watching you win chiustream after chiustream, but for some reason it never occurred to me to go to your blog until yesterday. And now that I have, I'm totally in love with your art and feeling really inspired to make some new stuff myself! So thanks for that. :)

Jonas bm said...

That small, eh? Quite impressive!

I see you've changed your profile image - good choice :D

protowilson said...

I recognised one of your pieces but didn't realise you'd done another. I liked the one you've chosen for your icon. Did you go for the triangular shape to allude to the pyramid on the dollar bill? There's lovely texture in the piece, too. Great stuff!

Charles Santoso said...

Lindsey: Thank you for the visit, Lindsey. You have some nice art in your blog! also.. thank you for the kind words :) look forward to seeing your new works!

Jonas: Thanks, Jonas.. now I look like an evil businessman :P

protowilson: yes! you're the first one who realised that! thank you! I made it quite subtle.. but sometimes I think.. maybe it's a bit too subtle hehehe.. Thanks for the visit!

Lesley Vamos said...

Excellent!!! Is this for the Bobby Chiu contest?

Charles Santoso said...

Thank you, Lesley. Yes it was :)

Joe Lee said...

dude rockin pencils again! love the graphic nature of it

Eric Barclay said...

Your work is outstanding... just fantastic character designs and compositions. Thanks for your visit - really enjoy your work and look forward to seeing more.

rachelm said...

Amazing work! It is incredibly inspiring. I would love to see your process for both of them. The styles are quite different but both very strong! I love how you managed to make the top painting mimic traditional paint styles and I bet watching you do that pencil technique on the bottom one would become quite mesmerizing with all that small detail lol. Anyways just a curious observer! Keep up the awesome work!!

Johanna Urban said...

Very cool blog :)

Great illustrations!!

Charles Santoso said...

Joe: Yo, man! Thanks a lot! :D

Eric Barclay: Thank you for the visit, Eric. Really appreciate your kind words.

rachelm: Hi Rachel, thx very much! I'll try to gather and post my process for the next one.. most of the time I pretty much do couple of doodles and straight to rendering from there. as for the pencil one (the 2nd), I did digital roughs.. then moved to pencil rendering from that - and brought it back to digital for a bit of colouring.

Johanna Urban: Thank you, Johanna! :)
