“Two Girls” + Speedpainting

Chah!

Yesterday was super productive (well, in my 2D world, at least). Mom finally bought me a new graphics tablet, so the rage to create something was too strong to resist. I also figured out how easy it is to make custom brushes in Photoshop. Uhuh.

Also, yesterday was the first time I recorded myself drawing (computer screen). Tell me what you think! Thanks! ;)

Illustration Friday

Yeah, regardless of the title, this isn’t an official submission for this week’s Illustration Friday. Still haven’t gotten back to joining their weekly challenges though I hope it’ll be soon.

There’s a funny story to this artwork that I want to share with you guys. You see, I remember sketching this last 2012 on my sketchpad but never planned on finishing it. It was supposed to be a random teenage girl on the bed talking on the phone, but recovering it 2 years later made me want to change everything. It’s weird how you find old art and be able to finish sketches or improve finished art.

A really rough pencil sketch colored in Photoshop.

So there. Finished a few days before Halloween came. :)

Ciao!

#latepost

These past few days, I’ve been experiencing everything. Yes, everything. I didn’t know if I should cry or laugh, pity myself or get angry. I felt like every emotion a person could feel was placed upon me like a burden. Love isn’t an emotion, so no jokes there.

I got sick, both physical and emotional, and had to stay at home for my afternoon class period (which turned out to be a double bummer).

But enough of that.

I am now doing okay, if it pleases you to know, and am regaining zest for life. Aside from prayer and medicine, I managed to get myself together through drawing this:

Messy, but it speaks for the chaos my mind was going through. Not that I’ve ever done really clean art with this style, though I’ve attempted a few times.

I felt hot (not the hot hot) during my sickness, and I guess I needed to release it through her fiery hair. Even her eyes seems sickly now that I see it with a clear enough mind.

And yes, many anatomical errors here. Many areas for criticism – take your pick.

Well, I hope this post isn’t depressing for those who’re caring enough to read it. :) GTG. Lots more projects to finish.

ENGS002 #5: Noooooo!!!!

It’s brown (both dark and light).

It’s an insect.

It has wings.

(Some can fly, but others can’t.

The flying ones are the scariest.)

It’s not “good-looking” but get more screaming girls than Coco Martin on Walang Hanggan.

It’s not a heartthrob, but both men and women chase after them frantically.

It doesn’t have super powers, but it can be everywhere at the same time.

It looks like Pili nuts – especially when seen in the morning after a deep sleep.

It doesn’t squeak or bark but it can be stronger than an alarm clock.

It cause catastrophic events such as preventing someone in particular to go to the toilet and get relief.

WHAT IS IT?

Answer: Yes, it’s a roach.

As a tribute to my “best” (ehemm) friend, Mr. Roach, here are some fascinating facts to further spark your interest (again, ehemm) on this “marvelous” insect. (Someone pass me a bucket! *pukes*)

1. Cockroaches can eat just about anything, and can survive without food for long periods of time.

2. Cockroaches like to be touched. (SERIOUSLY?! That is like, the WEIRDEST fact EVER.)

3. Cockroaches can live for weeks without their heads.

4. Cockroaches can be conditioned, just like Pavlov’s dogs. (REALLY?!)

I don’t know about you guys, but no matter how awesome cockroaches are, I wouldn’t want to see them all over the place, especially in toilets, bedrooms, and kitchens. I still believe them to be dirty no matter how other sites/books explain it (no offence, Mr. Roach) and I don’t think my view about them will change. Most people aren’t afraid of it, but they are disgusted, and anything disgusting is best avoided.

So thank you, roach experts, but no thank you!

Other thoughts : If roaches can be trained or conditioned… perhaps I’ll befriend one of them and appoint him as general. Then again, I;d have to get over my fear of them first! Ugh, eww!
