I’m proud to share the first trailer for missrinachan‘s series, Dragon Star. I’m very honored to be a part of this project. This is a story that is very important to her, and I’m happy to be able to help her bring it to life along with kirbopher. They’re both people I respect and am able to call friends. It’s going to be a challenge for me to work on this since I’m working on Shattered Heaven, but it’s going to be a good learning experience.
I’m wrapping up the last few minutes on Shattered Heaven Episode 5′s clean up for a May release. Dragon Star Episode 1 is beginning production and will be worked on at the same time as I work on Shattered Heaven’s Act 1 finale. It’s going to be a busy summer, but this is the sort of stuff that I love.
So give it a look and hopefully this will be something you can enjoy. A lot of hard work is going into this!

Looking back into my sketchbook, I forgot I had these Namco related doodles based on the recent webseries such as Bravoman and Mappy. Also taking my blimpdog productions mascot a bit further, trying to make these into usable emoticons somewhere. Not sure if they should be static or somewhat animated.
