In the hope of tomorrow,

I’ll wash away your sorrow.

From the tears that flood your eyes,

I will guide you through the night.

Doodles: The less you expect the greater the outcome.

Over 93 doodles in a span of 4 years, they may seem like they were sketched with pencil at first but all these were done minutes after their first stroke of a gel pen. No drafting and no sketching just the simple ball-pen then a pool of daydreaming were used to make them. Life will constantly drown you in others peoples’ paces and just when you got the hang of it another wave comes, to make you wait for the tides to change. Even in rushing rivers called time there will be calm waters where the mind can rest and block reality from rushing in. Not knowing how or when the calm comes we unconsciously find release through abstract representations of our thoughts, doodles. Let the stationery move as your mind flies elsewhere doing the things it needs to do, and by the time you are back look and have a laugh on what came out.

Bad Impulse: Doodle #90

My earnings come from commissions while my works come from discipline.  

 

                                The mean of my artistic time is spent plainly on answering commissions. Most are regular commissions which fall under regular multimedia art commissions which deal with local or provincial advertising. The other commissions become customer commissions which are requests for paintings, sculptures, devices, clothes, poems, papers, and illustrations(mostly in pencil).

                The rest of my allocated artistic time is spent on either drafting or finishing. Doodles are made on spur of the moment so they don’t follow under my artistic time. It became a habit to practice discipline in whatever I did to avoid any emotional obstacles that may damage my skill.

                                Receiving commissions is another regular routine of mine. The commissions that come to me only follow under one strict rule, it must not be anime/comic related fan art. This rule helps me avoid a mass of requests due to my anime style of art. Commissions are my paid work as an artist, so receiving a regular amount of commissions in a routinely basis is great. The minimum value of any Customer commissioned work is P5000 since I am not of legal age while my regular commissions come in depending on the assigned task.

                                                The commissions help me get by on my experimental and voluntary work such as this blog and page. For me as an artist/artisan, the reason for me to not just dropped all my voluntary work is because of my story-making peers. Inspired from the way my peers passionately address their inner forces through mediums that was the decision factor for me to go along and try. Unluckily, most of my peers have no stability to finish their work, “ningas kugon” in Philippine terms.

                                                The pessimism within me caused by the prominent characteristic, “ningas kugon,” has utterly emblazoned my personality positively and negatively. This became my reason for the extreme detail and effort put into most of my work and the long lengths of time I take to finish. But as beneficial this negativity may provide there is an equivalent backlash to it. The depths of dedication that take damage my health and the blindness, does not know when to stop, that accompanies it.

Cool bloc shirts

My friend suggested that we make our shirts personalized to have a unique shift on bloc shirts. She suggested that we have our own personal chibis representing who are by our class and/or race in the fantasy  world here are some samples:

Finished Product

The ones who made suggestions:

Jheriza Tan- Embroidery

Carl Casal- Red

Joshua Arejola- Chrest

This is the end product with some light adjustments. All of the background was concentrated on these three ideas. The embroidery idea is not that vivid in the picture because it was used as reference to the texture I made for the red.

Wings

16 hours in total were used to draw this. Thank you for those who made suggestions on the background.

Any suggestion/s for the background?

I might get kidney failure for making soba four times in one week. Anyway, I need suggestions on what to put behind this winged guardian. I hope you guys can give some suggestions. This picture was made at random with no goal at mind. Despite the plethora of patterns I used I just can’t find the creativity to finish it. the sketch also serves as my last practice before I start to work on my stories and poems again. I have one month and two days to go before I resume posting stories so please help by suggesting backgrounds. I will also credit the background to your suggestion. 🙂
