Like I said in my instagram bio: I like to experiment on different art styles. (So my posts aren’t always the same things) I used my old set of Stabilo Pen 68 that I mostly ignore because I’m not too fond of solid bright colors. Mostly did this because I am testing my IFTTT recipes and I do not have anything available to share. I am very busy these days. #quicksketch #nopencil #noeraser #stippling #illustration #drawing #doodle #stabilo #stabilopen68 #artph

The First Digital Painting That I Finished

Digital Art, Portrait

This is the first digital painting/portrait that I finished (because the first one I did still isn’t finished.).

I did this as a take home test for a job that I didn’t get.

I guess my work wasn’t enough. . . or, as usual, there’s so much competition.

It took me 6 hours.

I used Adobe Photoshop CS6

I was instructed to only paint the face and so I didn’t touch the rest of his body and background.

this is the reference I chose from the ones that they sent.

They have certain guidelines like: the colors I am only allowed to use, not too many details, and make them look prettier

-from what I can remember. (it was years ago)

I’m not so sure if I followed it correctly. hahaha. I might have added too many wrinkles – can’t help it, I always like bringing out flaws.

I remembered one of the bosses smirking when he saw what I was doing when they asked me to demo after the job interview. But this take home test came after that.

I still like traditional painting better than digital.

In Loving Memory of Lola Maria

Drawings, Paintings, Portrait


(*Lola means grandmother, in the Filipino language)

This is the last gift that I ever gave my grandmother. It isn’t even finished yet when I handed it to her at the Pulmonary Intensive Care Unit of the Veterans Memorial Medical Center.

Back then, the whole drawing was just graphic pencils and little bits of color -which was intentional, but it was a bit uneven, because I rushed it because I wasn’t happy with my first two attempts, that drawing was take 3. I was always extremely anxious when I’m making something for people who are important to me: always fussing over even the littlest details, always feeling it’s not enough.
