“My only formal art training was a six-month short course in 2D animation,” says Elvin, also known as Dexter, “but after finishing my studies I realised I don’t have the perseverance for animation,” so instead he wisely put more effort into his illustration and manga skills. He now freelances as a 2D game artist and illustrator, for both local and overseas clients. “I’m also a contributing artist for The Philippine Daily Inquirer (2BU Lifestyle section) and resident illustrator for UnimeTV,” he explains, making us wonder if he has any spare time!
While loving manga, he also admires the works of a variety of artists such as Noah Bradley, John Avon and Feng Zhu.
Highw ay Blossoms My guest art for the visual novel game Highway Blossoms (Steam Game) by Alienworks. In this illustration, I tried to emphasise the game’s main characters, Amber and Marina, by using the background to give more focus.”
2 Me ga Ch arizard! “This is my fan art of Mega Charizard from Pokémon. In this illustration I tried to make Charizard encapsulated by the pokeball yet powerful at the same time.”
3 Matsuri “An artwork commissioned by ASPAC-DAN ad agency. I was asked to create an illustration that evokes the Japanese culture, as their company will be under the new management of Dentsu Aegis Network. Therefore I decided to create this so as to celebrate Japanese Matsuri by featuring an elegant Yukata.”
