Venom made my day

I've started working at new place in cyberjaya as a storyboard artist.Hmmm...nuthin much to say
besides trying to adapt with the new environment and all.At the same time the DBP comic project also has started but i will start it on Monday anyway so at Saturday(night),I'm inspired to paint VENOM and i wanted to paint as fast as i could.But sadly it takes me basically 2 days.I need to paint and practice more to improve this skill.I've been thinking that i should paint at least 1 in a week.I hope I could managed that with the tight schedule and all.
It's a very hot season in KL make me miss Tokyo so much.I wish I have aircond in my apartment.I need to take a shower and sleep.

Dream who?.....

WHAT IS DREAM JUNKIES are all about?Simple....To make a great art or comics or anything related , to be recognized...not for fame but for appreciation on our work and hard effort.Maybe we were all new to some of you but some of us has been in this field for more than 10 years.Now consisting of friends and well talented people,we're unite to create a long last legacy from our works.We are trying to practice a calloboration culture in works and to show how these kind of work that we do has it own class in socitey,market and value.To do the art,you have to have a heart and that is the most valuable piece ever.Art should be fun and bold.That is what we re all about.Fun and bold. WHAT WE ARE DOING now are basically and mostly doing freelance jobs.Not necessarily every jobs we re all involve together.It depends on the price and the complexity of the jobs.However we re always try to find a way to do at least tag team style.But now we are working on more to comic project.We are trying to make it by teamwork.We do from writing to finishing layouts.Other than that we are also do animation mostly 2d but we also have a collabaration with some of our 3d friends,web design and other Pre Pro Design stuff.We re still exploring ourselves on how far we can go with our Godgifted talents.

WE ARE DREAMING to be the MAIN CREATIVE CONTENT PROVIDER to any creative related company around the world, to have our own not so big comic studios, not just in Malaysia but also in Tokyo,New York,UK and Greece, to have a VERY WELL PAID on every of our jobs we do, have our own GAME studio ,most of the well known hot ladies around the world recognize and crazy about our works...hehehe... and last but not have a great life in what we do with our love one...friends and family.Now you are all know why we named ourselves with this name.Its a huge dream but we will try to do our best to make the best stuff and try to make our dream into reality.It's definately not easy but everything must started from a dream.We just have to believe in it and work our ass on it.Your supports and believing in us out there are also crucial for our quest.So please don't givin up on us.

Anyone of you out there to share or comments ideas with us PLEASE don't hesitate.We would love to feel that there are somebody out there who aware of our existence in this DOG EAT DOG kind of world, if you know what i mean.Peace!!

More of Dream Junkies talents

Now let me introduced you all with 2 of our comrades here.Let me begin with Max.He's known as the hard core gamers.He loves to draw and always try to find ways to keep his work improves.Actually he is good at web designing but I see potential in him in drawing.He loves comic and animation as well.In fact, he has helped me a lot when we were together with my other friends making short animation teaser project.He was handling Animo that time.Now with his knowledge in Painter,we joined to create hopefully something cool in these group.Here are some of his work.

Xlid has been in the comic and cartoon scene in Malaysia for a quite sometimes.His drawing style has been evolved since he was in animation team at JAS(Anak Anak Sidek).From typical cartoon style to his own unique comic style, he has progress more than the other cartoonist that time could ever imagined.We hope we could unleashed his true potential after he joined this group.These were his old pieces.Still waiting for his new arts.

Kemenangan di hari Ironman

Baru balik dari tgk midnite IRONMAN dan tgk sket match between Liverpool and Chelsea.The movie was okla but i love all of Stark's experiment on his suit scene.Cool and funny.Tapi match
Liverpool ngan Chelsea hampeh.Aku takde la fan Liverpool sangat tapi yg sure aku tak sokong Chelsea,tak usah la tanya kenapa pasal aku memang tak tahu kenapa.Aku bukan follower football sgt pon.Liverpool main tak macam european club ah.Bola asyik cicir je.Bosan dan hampa punya pasal baru berapa minit masa kedua start aku ngan wife and adik dia gerak balik umah.
Tapi today is a sweet day i mean ari Rabu...Petang tadi aku,Max ngan Isse Chaplez hang out sat kat bilik studio aku ni.Max tolong aku adjust something(thanks a lot Max)so aku ngan Isse Chuplaz bertarung Winning Eleven(WE).Isse sebelum ini WE adalah 'Legend'...bak katanya.Okla memang dia selalu menang dalam game ni TAPI...hari ini....Legend sudah jadi Looser kerana tewas 4 - 0 ngan aku.Yup!Isse the legend dah kalah.No more victory dance and saiko noise from him when dia shoot gol.Aku tak nafikan...dalam 8 ke 10 kali match kitaorg ari ni,Isse mmg sentiasa menang ngan gol 1 - 0 atau 2 -1.Tapi sekali aku kalahkan dia......4 tanpa balas.Ia adalah nikmat utk aku hari ini bagi.Well bak kata ko Isse...don't hate the player,hate the game...hehehe...
Esok,aku kene siapkan rough layout komik DBP tu utk kasi Freak.Tah sempat ke tak.Hope Freak tak marah...lagi pun nak diskas banyak bende pasal kemusykilan komik DBP ni.

Good nite

Diary Of M Jane by Isse Chuplas 01

Here are the comic work from Isse Chuplaz when he was suffering no money and didn,t get paid from his working place.Sorry the dialogue was in Bahasa Malaysia but try to guess what it's all about if you could read the visual...wink!!
Budak budak yang baca bende ni jgn terpengaruh ngan lifestyle katun ni.Ini hanya luahan perasaan seorang artis yg dalam tekanan tak dapat gaji dan takde duit.

Komik ni tak la panjang sangat tapi aku dah suruh Isse Chuplaz sambung je bila ade masa.Komik ni aku akan release seminggu sekali.Cerita ni agak self expression so jgn la expect profesional and all la kan.Ini tatapan untuk santai sahaja....Enjoy!

More to come.

I'm about to hit the bed.I will try add some comic that done by Isse Chuplaz and it will be weekly and also I will share with you guys my unfinish old comics here as well,tomorrow.Night!

Baby Projects Working in Hibernate

There are 2 comic titles that i ve been save for more than 10 years to be released.Why it's so special and why i've kept it hibernate for a long time?I'm also not sure.Maybe because these 2 stories took me a lot of time to sort out their facts.Or maybe it reminds me of how determine of me back in the day when i was into these stories.Or maybe these stories would bring me somewhere in the industry?

Whatever the reason is, i got to released these two titles that i consider as my baby project.I think these are the 2 stories that I write with my experience,knowledge and heart.I put my soul in it.So its a pure work of mine.Though some of it may have a collaboration with other artist.

It was Guardians Of The Gate (GOTG)that started me getting serious in the comic.I have draw a bunch of strips with only a dozen that i managed to finalize the work.It was pure and detail but it still not original enough and a poor presentation for me.Also i realized these kind of story is big.I need to be matured enough to make these story flow well.The magic and action and art are just for the good setting and good presentation but the real content of the stories were these 8 main characters.Their past,their choices in living,their relationship with other characters and responsibilities were the main core of this story.Its a dark drama action story or maybe a dark thriller action story...i don't know.

I have finished writing the 1st volume of the stories,finished main plot writing for vol 2 and 3.I thought GOTG will end at vol 4 but after write and rewrite the plot and facts and all,it may take 6 volume max.The whole facts of the story was a challenging one.I have to readjust some story just because i have to replace the old ideas.And some ideas got to relate with other ideas or the story will be disastrous.Thats why i need to be careful and thorough in the story writing so there will be no more adjustment when the drawing starts.

For me the stages now are almost complete for GOTG.I think the drawing stage or at least design stage can be started somewhere around September or October or maybe sooner depends on my freelance jobs.

I have stopped checking and write Medan Azazil(MA) for a quite long time because of lots of reason.The main reason was to finished GOTG first,because GOTG story has developed progressively while MA still have a loop holes in the storyline especially on the characters.And it was always a dilemma for me to make it as one whole shot story that will end in one volume or to make it last till 4th or 5th volume to complete the story.I can only write back on MA when i have finished writing GOTG so i wont messed up the stories.

All i can say about MA is its involved with jin(Djin) and humans in the Jin world.War was going like forever between them.It has dark scheme ,a well long term evil organize plan ,with a little boy who the only one that can restore the peace there.

I really hope i managed to release these 2 titles on market on time.One thing for sure,I need a team to complete these project.I will try to keep on updates about this matters.

New Year Sums up

Its already 2008.Nothing much for me but only a will to find a lot of money as i could and to make my carrier more meaningful.
Everyday i have to battle myself with the fast limited time to achieved what i want to be.Daily at the comic job are pretty exhausting.It seems that i live in a dream with the dream job but its actually not.For me its just a responsible that i ve to take care of.Maybe because of the limited freedom in work or not enough paid considering with what i ve been through in the industry or maybe my focus has been shifted or grow to something bigger.I m not sure.One thing that i m sure of,i got to do something to improvise my skills and especially myself for a bigger objectives.

I m tired of people who use our kind of expertise cheaply.They think art are easy to do.Anything related with ideas flowing through the hands and materialized it in any kind of form are expensive.Maybe thats the reason i m not too keen doing comics anymore.Its just work.I ve learned and studied the knowledge too long but my paid still like i just involved in the industry.
I dont have to memerized writers,artists or comic titles all around the world just to show that i am the true comic artist because i think its unnecassary.What you can do and how you can delivered in time is what counts.

Artists nowadays also have a different views in this related kind of matters.I m having problems to share my ideas...maybe it too old for them but i believed the idea will never be old or season if it has a revolutionary touch which is i m into.Or maybe i m too scared to share it,because of the negative rejection and all.

Now i am seeking freelance jobs as much as i can because seriously my monthly paid are never enough to support my monthly expenses.I have no savings and i have a lot of debts.This driving me to seek a lot of freelance jobs and sadly i m not in the position YET to demand price but im heading for that way when i managed to settle my debts and gain some savings.When that time comes,they will consider our kind of jobs more seriously with a serious kind of payment.

My baby project (comic/novel)had to be kiv as i ve to settle my financial by doing freelance jobs but that doesn t mean that i m not involved in any comic job instead of my daily job.I have a project with my colleague to do short comic and one more come up where im just a storyteller and they will draw it.Maybe,maybe i will draw one comic after they ve done those 2 title....i m not sure.

I just hope this will be a good and great year for me.A turning back for me to get moving towards my objectives and dreams.Aminnnnn.....
