“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.”
