2014 June UPDATES:

PS. Keep the feedbacks going! I read them all and will reply to them one by one, as always, it means a lot to me and thanks so much guyss!


Busy busy week, been dying to update some drawings of Neo Japan 2202, hopefully will be dropping a few these two weeks and currently having a collab with a fellow artist friend of mine, who paints really kickass vehicles. Anyway, I'm happy to announce that i will be joining the team@ Project Triforce in the coming period as a full time concept artist, and we're working on tons of cool projects out there, im so pumped when i get to see most of them announced on E3. 

On a side note, if you guys havent check it out yet, Mortal Kombat X looks amazing and gory :D or maybe im just biased, anyway i've been working on it for more than a year and it has been an awesome experience so check it outt!

As for the Neo Japan book:


Yeap, been lucky enough to be approached by a couple of publishers and in the midst of discussing the whole project, gonna take some time but it's definitely happening. All the comments and feedback means a lot to me and it's what made the book happen! But keep it going guys! The more feedback i get the better i can make sure it can meet everyone's needs and expectation as much as i can. 

Thanks guys and I'll keep the updates coming!
Neo Japan 2202 coming this week!

NEO JAPAN 2202 - THE BOOK by johnsonting

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!

**Commissions Terms of Service:

These Terms of Service are relevant to non-commercial projects only, and are subject to revision, without notice. The Client must read, understand and agree to all the below terms before entering into an agreement with the Artist. 

• The Artist has the right to refuse any commission request.

• The Artist reserves the right to issue a refund and cancel a commission due to poor communication, rude/inappropriate behavior, or an inability to effectively communicate in the English language.

• The Artist will not create any depiction of illegal activities, sexually explicit (x-rated) materials, or hateful/racist imagery. 

• The Artist retains all rights to the commissioned artwork, including the rights to distribution (i.e., to create prints, merchandise, etc.). 

• The Artist retains the right to display all commissioned work on any personal website, gallery, or journal. If the commissioned work is time-sensitive, the Artist can delay public display of the art at the request of the Client.

• The Client may not re-distribute, reproduce, or sell the Artist's work, or profit from the artwork, beyond the resale of a physical original painting or drawing (traditional media only).

• The Artist is not responsible for printing (digital media). Works will be uploaded to this site and will be available for Clients to purchase at the cost of printing (no markup).

• The Client may exhibit the Artist's work in any online/offline art gallery without the permission of the Artist but require proper credits.

• The Client is advised to specify the size of his/her commissioned image, whether digital or traditional. Excessively large images (larger than the download size of the samples listed below) will cost more. Excessively small images (smaller than the full-view size of the samples listed below), may reduce the price.

• The Client may resize/crop the commissioned artwork to create icons, wallpapers, or other graphics to be used in non-commercial digital format, but the client cannot alter the artwork itself.

• Client rights can be negotiated for an added fee. If the commissioned image will be used for commercial purposes, the Artist must be notified prior to the start of work. Commercial use of images will be decided upon on a case-by-case basis, and will result in an increased commission price. New terms of service must be decided upon before the Artist begins any work on a commission for commercial use.

**Payment method:

•  All prices are expressed in U.S. dollars, and payments are expected to be made as such. The Client is responsible for sending the correct amount, equal to the listed U.S. dollar amount.

•  Displayed base prices are subject to change according to the complexity, difficulty, size, and medium of each individual piece.

•  At least 50% deposit or a full payment has to be delivered before I start the commission.

• If the Client wishes to cancel his/her commission during the sketch stage, he/she will be refunded 50% of what he/she paid. No refund will be issued beyond the sketch phase of a commission.

• I prefer commission payments be made utilizing Paypal services, and addressed to , if the Client does not have PayPal, other means of payment can be arranged. However, payment is still required up front.
