Make It Marikina 2013!

Although all of us wrapped up all the ingredients last year, this year will be hence more challenging for us. All the provocative canvasses and agenda’s sprouted like magic last year and it will continue to grow. I have a really big shift this year for I am changing my path to a new level. Sorry for those who I missed on emails I am busy with all the development and studying.

As you all know the Marikina website is now up again and you can visit it here: it is very useful for all of the people who really wanted to know more about our city and festivities going on. My tutorials will still continue though you can also reach me through our Facebook page and email. I will focus more on livelihood tutorials and free training offered at CENTEX. You can visit CENTEX at the 2nd floor of the Marikina City Hall and inquire for the FREE courses for Marikina citizens.

If you are not a resident you can still enroll at Marikina Polytechnic College for TESDA accredited short courses and just pay a minimum fee. I’ll keep you posted. Have a wonderful 2013 Marikenyo’s!


A Minute of Game Characters

I’ve been fond of pewdiepie’s YouTube channel since I started watching it. He blogs about games and some walk through and guides. I am a big fan of PC games and some online games and the quality is always a major priority for me no matter how shallow the plot is. People always blab about how good the graphics are no matter how lame the story and span of the game.

Although I am into graphics I still indulge myself with games I can enjoy playing for years like the old school Monkey Island. It made my mind twist and think! It is so hard for me that I really didn’t finished the entire game story, I didn’t know that time that there are cheats and guides online but anyhow it i will just bore you if you will cheat and know all about the game.

So to spice up my dream of developing a game like Ragnarok and Starcraft I’ve been sketching some characters of my own way back in elementary. It looks contorted that time at least now they kinda have a spirit on my work. So I made these quick paint with the help of smudge tool for less than an hour.

First one is Sairen and the second one I named her Malaya. You can send me a request about a character you want me to develop like this one. I hope everyone received already my emails regarding my new batch of granted requests! I can’t really post the other entries cause its a personal request. Have a fun filled November with less spook!

Belle de Jour Women Empowerment

Belle de Jour’s lightens every girl with its activities and events!

They held an event last October 14 and it boosts women empowerment activities and sharing of blogs and ideas on how every girl can improve their inner strength. A little contest on shirts and giveaways are one of the highlights for the followers.

I made a simple design for BDJ and a little vector came handy for me since its not really a gradient spree.  Geometric shapes are a trend on shirt designs nowadays but I am thinking of something new to the eye so I will be posting a little information about that concept this month.

Enjoy your weekend guys and as what BDJ said, “I am not like you, I am like me.” made me chuckle in a weird way!

Tracking and Sketch

I’ve been developing and coordinating with some people regarding this new technology on tracking devices. I am really excited to be part of the project although it may take some time to release the product. My art pile is stock up so I will release this one.

This is so old school, made this on my college days. I don’t use any tablet or pens in all of my works, they are pure manual, yes, with the use of scanner and simple editing on Photoshop. A simple trick: adjust the color level and balance. Here’s a digi paint I made.

I already posted and emailed and artwork requests I verified. I managed to get the work done for a couple of people. Its really nice to hear you liked it! Well, a little credit on recognition is okay with me if you will try to make a profit out of it. Blah.

That’s it, my postage is open right now for requests and collabs.  I’ll leave it all to you guys!

A Dragon Adventure

From inking, manual tracing and digital rendering. I mastered producing designs for shirts. Here is a sample of shirt design I made for Swatches. Sorry for the tiny preview, I just copied it at one of my social networking sites.

Sadly some of my works are deleted forever. Thanks to computer complications but anyways I still produce designs that can be applied to shirts and stuffs.

This one is lucky enough to survive! Oh my glob. I think I want to make an Adventure Time shirt soon!

The gradient on this one is strong. Pew, pew, pew. Do you also spend a little longer on choosing the right colors?  Neon colors are my favorite!

I am Happy!

Smile like a boss! My entry for the contest. I printed out the little smileys there. I had fun working on this video specially the muppets I made. Edited it at AE and published at AP.

The scoring is pretty simple, I used Ingrid Michelson’s ,”Be Ok” and some sound effects on AP. Thank you for the BASS and recurring sound it sounded cheery! Well, have a happy day everyone!
