Dancing with Transformer Neptune :: the dream shirt

Dear fans,

Do you know, I’d do anything for you fans?  Okay not exactly anything, but if you’d ask, I’ll consider it.

I’m just getting really excited because I finally completed all those on-site SEO things that the book told me to do. Moved the site to my old URL, restructured sidebar, put in keywords, reinstalled analytics, updated mailing list…geez. I can’t wait to get some drawings done is all. Damn. One day I gotta hire someone to do this sh*t.

Anyways, here’s Dancing with Transformer Neptune — the dream shirt. (“Can you stop saying ‘the dream shirt’?” “No, that’s my keyword, man!”) Click the image to see a giant picture.

I think it looks good in orange and raspberry. But if you’d like other colors, let me know and I’ll let you have your color.

Me and My Fan

Dancing With Transformer Neptune

Yes I gave birth to this finally.

See Large Image and listen to the music at the same time.

This is the first time that I made something with this much details, effect and shading, kind of like a video game matt painting. I usually do very flat and saturated images and don’t really like that style, but for this picture to come to life, like in my dream,  lighting, texture and effects were needed.

Psychologically I never left my school years in Taiwan. 90% of my dreams I’m in one of the three: elementary school, junior high or senior high, and hang out with friends who I got to know from then. Sometimes current people show up, but very rarely and/or in the backgrounds.

The girl in the picture is my elementary school best friend. In this dream, we were hanging out in an old church. It ‘s not any church but church of the god of the ocean. It was dark in the church, with faint streams of light coming through the stained glass windows. She was dancing giddily with the ocean god Neptune dressed as Transformer. She was so small, he was so huge and not moving very much. She was having so much fun and totally absorbed with herself. There’s a background music playing, it is Chopin’s Nocturne Op 9 No 2 in E. Flat Major. It was near the end of the song, she was spinning and asking me to take a picture of her and the Neptune Transformer. I was fumbling with the camera and because it was dark in the church, all the pictures I took were blurry. She said, come on, Bonny, take a picture, the song is almost over!
