My baby cousin, Scott Toang Le, passed away two days after his birth. Apparently the nurse neglected and ignored repeated requests when the mother thought something was wrong.
MUSIC COMPOSITION: Dwemer Dance (Link Below) by OrangeSbr
MUSIC COMPOSITION: Dwemer Dance (Link Below)…

Written in Sonar X3. Probably in either A Minor or C Major, probably both. Don't remember, I was kinda bashing my head against a keyboard for this one. Inspired by the world theme from Fire Emblem Awakening, for a Skyrim Mod I did for a midterm project.
Elven Lady (WIP) by OrangeSbr
Elven Lady (WIP)
Drew this while I was in Crisis Care while I was showing some of the other clients how I drew. Saw a really pretty dress I used for a reference...

But I think it also had a lot of texture I don't think I can replicate with pencil alone just yet, so I scanned it in as is. Maybe I'll find the time I want to photoshop this and try a few things in there.
Ayane Armor Redesign by OrangeSbr
Ayane Armor Redesign
An attempt at getting back into the groove. This drawing I've been working on and off for the past semester. Was exploring ways to update the look of her armor to make it seem more feasible than the old style.

So here I'm thinking kevlar sleeves underneath the bracers. In addition, a third strap had been added at the elbow. For the greaves, I wanted to give more flexibility to her ankles, so I segmented the plate completely. The simplistic mana channel circle motif has been reduced to a single one on both bracers and greaves, and designed to be closer to the knees and elbows, allowing some flexibility and offer protection to the joints. She still wears the thigh high stockings when it strikes her fancy, but wears an additional layer of kevlar protection over it.

Why Kevlar? Sure, it helps stop bullets to a degree, but she is also usually fighting all manner of demons, which will attack with claws and such as well. Kevlar doesn't do much to protect against puncture wounds, but it should hold up better if treated with Shear Thickening Fluid, giving it about the strength of 14 sheets of Kevlar.

In addition, I originally had it in mind that Ayane holstered her guns at the small of her back. Would make sense, considering the placement of her katana at her hip, but going into "possession" form has the unique problem of her wings sprouting out at around the same location. It's not visible here very well, but I imagined a harness that allowed her to holster it under her arms would work best. Not only does it solve the above issue, but is for the most part much easier to conceal with a coat.

If you have your own thoughts, lemme know. I'm gonna use this as a guinea pig for painting.

*UPDATED* used pencils of different hardnesses for shading.

After my walk today, I'm gonna scan in all my artwork that I've not done so already for the past... I don't know how many years now.

Tim Huynh Le
Artist | Student | Varied
United States
I’m a college student in the DC metro area, studying game design at George Mason University. I write stories and draw manga-influenced art whenever I’ve got free time. That is, if I’m not captivated by anime, manga or games, which along with music, inspire my creativity.

I haven’t taken any actual classes for art: almost everything I’ve learned I got from “How to” books, particularly Manga Mania: How to Draw Japanese Comics by Christopher Hart, or more recently, by just drawing. In terms of digital coloring, I have lately been tinkering around more in Photoshop.

Outside of my hobbies of drawing, anime, manga and games, I am also a second-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and practice the katana on my own. I also dabble with my guitar from time to time. Recently, I started running original setting pen-and-paper roleplay games with friends, as well.
