NEO JAPAN 2202 - PHANTOMS by johnsonting
New piece for Neo Japan! 

"Invisible Ops aka Yurei aka Phantoms/Ghost, is a a project that focuses on producing stealth units, equipped with cloaking fabrics and often cover in dark colors. They are aim to be built and specialize in stealth missions, they are controlled by a single hive system, with an A.I called Azumi. This enables the unit to operate with extreme accuracy, precision and synchronization, much efficient that its human counterpart. "

Here you can see an early experimentation and prototype version of the Yurei in a field test, with retractable clocking strips from its head. "

Looking forward to the final version of these guys!

For this piece I use a photo from the Australian Navy Divers as a base :D The series of photos are amazing!…
Interstellar Dog Fight by johnsonting
Interstellar Dog Fight
I used play a lot of the old star wars: tie fighter game, one of my favorites! Now I cant wait for Star Citizen, always like to imagine how chaotic a cockpit must be during a space dog fight, shiny UIs all over the place, evading lasers and missiles, cracking glass and annoying beeps, must be hell!

 Edit: Btw guys after I posted this work I got a message showing me this game being made by the original tie fighter/x wing series creator, it's gonna be a space battle mmo, check it out! I've made a pledge!…

Queen of Crows
A practice on more fantasy armor using one of my previous piece as a base, I really don't draw enough women so I need to practice a lot more. Using Paul Kwon, Plus Nine and other korean artists' artworks as reference for the lady, imo these artists draw the prettiest women on earth!

Did two versions, one more towards cosmetic armor (probably when she holds ceremony or stuffs etc) and one more battle armor that covers the parts, decorative as well to boost soldier morale!

Hoping to do a lot more art on women, really need that practice :/

Edit: Fixed the heels! Haha, sorry guys! 
You can view the one with bg here:

NEO JAPAN 2202 - Yuto Ishii by johnsonting
NEO JAPAN 2202 - Yuto Ishii
Really wanted to do some Neo Japan stuffs ever since I got back from Tokyo recently, but currently catching up with all the works I've missed so I only manage to sketch this guy today :/
Yuto is one of the characters I have been developing recently, I'm currently writing the whole script and decided that I need a good+bad guy! He's gonna be an important role to Kazuko.

Heres the lore:

Yuto Ishii, also known as "Seven (7)" by most people, is one of the more wanted terrorist on the list. Yuto Ishii is formerly a prisoner in Hikari Maximum Security Prison, Yamaguchi, he was said to be a subject of a newly founded project that focuses on the psychological behavior of an inmate.
All the test subjects are only referred/called by their numbers instead of names, also to avoid a trigger of unnecessary memories. Yuto Ishii is known as 'Seven', the 7th patient in the first batch of the project. Yuto was an inmate on a death row, his conviction is a first degree murder of his parents, and an attempted murder on his brother, he pleaded guilty and though he was proven to be a mentally ill individual, he was still given a death sentence. He was also the only surviving patient from the first batch up until his escape, of all 26 subjects, 20 died of shock/trauma/heart failures, 3 suicide by biting their own tongue, and 2 shot on an attempted escape, the duration of the test lasted 6 years.

Yuto Ishii was considered a successful test subject as he has shown absolutely 0% of violent thoughts/behavior, his personality has also changed to a timid young and peaceful man, he has no memories of his traumatic childhood or previous crimes, the most surprising result is that his IQ has raised significantly, he was able to solve extremely difficult questions and his reaction speeds are almost tripled. Researches concluded that this is a direct result from the tests and they have increase the maximum potential of his brain. However, Yuto Ishii miraculously disappeared overnight on the winter of 2196, it was concluded that he has somehow escaped and the helmet on him was untrackable.

In the year 2199, a mysterious figure started appearing throughout tokyo and goes by the name "Seven", a vigilante that has sacked several drug dealers. But he was often seen talking to himself all the time, and has a few robotic limbs that seemingly acts on its own, as if the extra limbs belong to another person. Rumors has it that the 'psychotic' seven controls the limbs, and the 'genius' seven controls the main body. He has been seen with extra ordinary speed, and seems to be able to avoid bullets (unproven), as often as he appears, he has not once been detected by the local police.

Hopefully I can get some time to finished up this sketch and render him out!

I'm featured on kotaku today!

Sun Dec 7, 2014, 10:27 PM…

As titled, its so awesome to be featured! Always been a reader on Kotaku and I follow their updates pretty closely, i'm sure most of the people out there are the same as well. So to be featured really means a lot to me, personally! Years back I could only look at articles on Kotaku and thought: "Wish I could be on the website someday..", and now I made it! Feels so awesommmeee! 

Glad you guys are liking the artworks! If you're reading this and on this page via Kotaku, high five to you my friend! Deviantart's community have always been very supportive and I'm glad I started everything here. 
Anyway, I'm greatly honored and humbled by all the kind words given! And I take in all the criticism as well, i always keep that in mind, though i may not be able to satisfy everyone, but i've always hoped to find a balance in them. I will work harder!

At the mean time, hopefully more updates but since the holidays are near it would be a fewer updates, hope everyone is doing well! Have a great christmas guys!

Have a nice day and I'll keep the updates coming!

PS: I'll keep the book info on and the poll as well, it still means a lot if i can continue getting feedbacks :D


As for Neo Japan 2202 project, I need some pretty big favor from you guys! Currently im looking to make Neo Japan 2202 into a book before into a game! (hopefully), so there's a poll above this journal (Main page) that i hope you guys dont mind doing a pretty fast two-click survey for me. If it were to be made into a book, it's going to be roughly like this:

-- English! But will probably have japanese translation/subtexts.
-- Most probably hardcover
-- 150 - 200 pages.
-- 50-100 artworks (Illustrations and sketches)
-- At least 30-50 Exclusive artworks that can only be in the book.
-- The Story, tons of it! Not just plain texts but with visuals as well.
-- Documents from the Neo Japan 2202 universe, maps/files/pictures/blueprints/namecards etc.
-- Price wise, im not really sure right now but i will definitely keep it as low as possible, the same goes to shipping, but if its not too much of a trouble i hope you guys dont mind dropping me a price range you would buy it!
-- Probably a digital ebook version as well (Download code for physical book buyers included)
-- Hopefully some soundtracks! (Currently looking for collaborators, you guys recommend anyone?)
-- Prints / posters inside!

I'm planning to make it like "The Dark Knight Manual" book, its really great in terms of the readability, design and information. It's one of my favorite book and the style is really close to what i want the Neo Japan book to look like! Here's a youtube video review of the book:

Feedbacks! These are the most important! Also, if you are a publication company, feel free to contact me if you're interested in speaking with me about it. Email:

P.S: Any 3D modelers/sculptors want to model some of my characters? :p

Anyway, thank you so much guys and hope to hear from you soon!

Thanks and have a nice day!
