Frontier Buccaneers 3D Props Kickstarter Campaign! by johnsonting
Frontier Buccaneers 3D Props Kickstarter Campaign!

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of updates but here's an extremely exciting news for you all:

Doc Dailey Designs' kickstarter is up! It's a project about making actual 3D printed badass cosplay props from one of my paintings. Mr. Dailey is absoultely a really nice guy, and a master in his craft. I'm so honored and happy for the tons of effort he's putting in for this project. Together with Dutch Props, also one of the guys who makes the coolest halo props ever, i'm pretty sure this is going to be EPIC! Plus, he is making all 5 of the characters, which is a ton of effort, blood and sweat included. 

He had successfully kickstarted a project before and definitely a man of his words. So if you are interested and looking forward to see the concepts being realized, do us a very big favor by supporting the project! Or even share it around, that'd be a very very huge help!

Be sure to check out his page to see the quality of his props, it's absolutely kick ass!!

So if you are interested, pledge it! :D You can even own the ACTUAL finished+wearable helmet fully equipped with lights, or get all 5 raw casts!

Frontier Buccaneers
Been awhile! Sorry for the lack of updates guys D:

The previous piece I did gained quite an amount of attention and a fellow deviant even submitted it to the star citizen forum and the developers loved it, good to know! :D 
Since people are digging the holo-mask and someone even made an actual helmet based on my concept, figured I should do another painting of the team for fun! Also made in in wallpaper size just incase :OP
From left to right, the names and their description:

Crossbone - The heavy in the team, muscular, wields a gattling gun and a grenadier. The team's firepower. 
Olly- The craziest SOTB in the sector, but the smartest in the team, lost his arm and damaged half of his body on a mission. The ballsiest one in the team.
Reaper - Team leader, probably the only one in the sector that can commandeer a team of insane pirates. Team's tactician and strategist.
Jager - Sniper and scout, silent and deadly. Blind in one eye. The team's eye in the sky (space lulz).
Shaman - The religious doctor, claims to be able to foresee events and prays before he kills. Team's first aid and oracle.

Hope you guys dig it!

Edit: just uploaded a textless version as suggested :D

Update: Here's the page of the guy who made the helmet! (and also a ton of kickass halo props)…;
We're actually in planning on some projects about Frontier Buccaneers together, man what a string of events. Turns out there was some misunderstanding and we talked about it, now I've made another friend! :D 
Follow his stuffs if you guys love props!

A time lapse of painting based on a photo, a futuristic police.
You can view the video process right here:

For this piece I didn't think of any idea beforehand, so basically I just paint and make up stuffs and shapes along the way, so you will see a lot of back and forth exploring, which is always the part I enjoy the most because of all the possibilities, and I have to decide which design to go with and which to sacrifice :P Really regret not using a higher resolution picture though.

Hope you guys enjoy the video! And share it around if you do learn a thing or two, feel free to shoot me questions in the comments below if you have any!

In regards to the speed, for this video I kept at roughly 30 mins long as I do not want to speed it up way too much, so I apologize for the length of the video, or if you think its too fast, you can try slowing down the video using the youtube player, simply click the Settings - Speed - 0.5 or 0.25.

Video is sped up around 1200%, the whole thing took around 5 hours to complete, working on and off over the course of a week, let me know if you think the video is too fast! I'll upload another if you prefer.
This video is for educational purposes only, no profit will be made from this.

Background music is Halo's ODST full soundtrack, one of my favorite ost in the video game industry!

Neo Japan 2202 - 1/6 Scale figurine announcement by johnsonting
Neo Japan 2202 - 1/6 Scale figurine announcement
Hey guys! Big news for Neo Japan 2202! I am officially announcing that Neo Japan 2202 would be making its first step into the figurine industry, I have always wanted to physicalize the project besides doing an artbook (The book is currently put on hold indefinitely due to this project and another book going on), as a fan and artist of collectibles, it has always been a life goal to have my own line of toys. 

I am lucky enough to be able to co-produce this line with the amazing Devil Toyswho specializes in high quality figures, you should check out their current line World of Order, the details are absolutely top so I feel absolutely safe that Neo Japan is in their hands.
We are releasing a worldwide limited run of 1/6 scale collectible figures, hopefully to be able to ship to every corner of the world. 

Volume 1 is due to be revealed in a couple of months’ time (pre-orders would open around the beginning of fall), it is now in its early development stages, and I will be bringing updates from time to time, more information coming soon! So stay tuned on my deviantart page or my personal facebook page (… )

For now here’s a teaser to let you guys guess which guy is the first to be in line!

Exciting times! I can’t wait to show you guys the prototype!!

Also, deviantart users will have exclusives because it is where Neo Japan has started and the community has shown lots of great support and I would love to give it back to the community. When I reveal the prototype I will list what deviantart supporters/followers will get for the exclusive version :) You would also get a personal thank you message! 
NEO JAPAN 2202 - PHANTOMS by johnsonting
New piece for my personal IP, Neo Japan 2202! Did the first iteration of this guy last month, decided to include him in one of the seven main characters in the story, a Phantom gone rogue and joined the Ronins, just like Kokushibyo.

This is a first version of him, when he was still with the Phantoms, I will do another version of this painting in his rogue form, modified parts and such. Short summarized lore below:

Invisible Ops aka Yurei aka Phantoms/Ghost, is a a project funded by the Royal Police, a project that focuses on producing stealth units, equipped with cloak-capable fabrics and often covered in dark colors. They are built to specialize in stealth missions. The units are controlled using a hive system, by an A.I called Tsuki, which is one of the oldest and the earlier model of A.I developed, this enables the unit to operate with extreme accuracy, precision and synchronization, much efficient that its human counterpart. 

One particular Phantom, the seventh Phantom to be precise, is rumored to have been decommission due to an unusual number of technical glitches. The seventh Phantom has been seen entering the Hive system core engine room by security cameras, however, when security arrives he was no where to be seen and scan suggests that there are no sign of robots in the room.  The seventh Phantom went missing on its way to be dismantled, suspected being stolen by the Ronins, there have been reports of his sighting in Ronin infested areas.


Edit: His camo-strips are turned off and some retracted in this piece :D

Tutorial Ideas, anyone?

Sun May 24, 2015, 9:05 PM
Hey guys! Been awhile since I've updated my journal, here are some status updates:

The book for Neo Japan 2202 is on hold for now, due to personal reasons and I didn't want to rush it out, and I'm working on another book right now so I gotta make time for that first. :D The book will be announced in a couple of months time, it's gonna be a collaboration with a lot of great artists so hang tight!

I'll drop anymore updates about the book if there's any, so for now I'm gonna keep posting snippets of Neo Japan from time to time. 

So main topic:

Thank you guys so much for the views! You guys are the best :D I've been reading the comments and sorry I havent gotten to reply them, i'll do so soon! Rushing some projects recently so be kind D:

Anyways, gonna do a tutorial but I figure it's best if you guys can let me know what your thoughts are, what your questions are and what sort of tutorial you would like to see, let me know in the comments! For me to get some ideas and share some of my painting processes. 

As for my brushes, Ive uploaded it a while ago so I'm gonna put it here incase you're looking for it:
Johnson Ting Brush Pack V1.1 - Notes by johnsonting just click on the thumbnail and it'll link you there.

Thanks guys! Let me know your thoughts :D

If Neo Japan 2202 were made into a book, a compilation of the artworks along with all the information and back-story. Would you buy it? Details are in my journal! All help is greatly appreciated!

Hey, I'm new to DA and was excited to see your work. I've seen some of your pieces floating around tumblr in the past so its cool to get to the source here. Much respect. I know your probably pretty busy but what groups would you recommend here? Maybe tailored more towards sci-fi and fantasy? Keep up the great work!
