Enter the World of ZZ the Dark's emporium
Here are some of my best 2D works seen below to introduce my work style
Digital Matte Painting section
Consisting of some of my fave pieces including Transformers' related pieces which pays tribute to Masterpiece Reanimated on Youtube by Optimus Timelord.
Grimlock powering up
Grimlock,in a galaxy far away,is powering up for a big brawl.
Deep in the hangars of the Decepticons' base, there are weapons yet to be used but when the time's right,they'll be unleashed to wreak havoc upon the land!
Triple Galvatron threat
In another time and place, Galvatron teams up with other sides of himself in order to defeat his enemies.
Honey the Pretender
Galvatron,enraged by his numerous defeats is glowing with an enormous aura of power!
It's either you or me!
Grimlock,the dinosaur robot in the distance is now approaching Galvatron (the robot in the foreground) to have their confrontation concluded.
Spaced Out (Wallpaper Contest)
Made as a contest piece for Deviantart's Space Challenge last year - either between September till November,I'm not sure of the month but it urged me to try something different with Digital Matte Painting. I didn't win but I learned quite a few things from that experience.
A digital Matte Painting I've done as one of my works in my final year in MAGES. This was based on Mars expedition.
A giant is among us! Let loose our greatest warrior to fend him off. If he falls,we'll fight the beast till the very end!
Cloud City - Different from what you know,this city has the biggest skyscrapers that reach almost to the atmosphere in order for people to look above the world. Here,technology allows them to soar through the skies above in our Cyberjets.
Rodimus vs Galvatron Anime Ver Screensho
A world Above
There are cities above ours which we know..the future is filled with lots of possiblities.
This was one of my digital matte paintings during my stent in the finalyear of MAGES - Institute of Excellence. Made to manipulate images to make a volcanic explosion.
This was piece during my final year in MAGES while I was learning how to change an image from day to night.
This encapsulates my love for 2D animation from the 70's - 90's whether manga and anime or comics,etc.
Why this 2D Art Gallery endeavor?
by ZZ the Dark
My alias is ZZ the Dark but friends call me by Zaki. I had dreams and aspirations of becoming an animator ever since my final years in what you guys call 'high school'. I enrolled in the private establishment of MAGES Institute of Excellence around September of 2016 and gained not only a Diploma of Animation but an Advanced Diploma in Animation as well past 2018. I'm proficient mostly in drawings as well as Motions Graphics Animation and still learning things till this day.
