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

New Year, 2015: Don’t Drink Alcohol

Daycraft Signature Sketchbook A5, Drawings

The doctor said I shouldn’t drink alcohol while my wisdom tooth extraction site heals. 😦

I wanted to drink champagne.

This one I drew last night, in the last minutes of 2014.

Finished on 2015.

And so I drew the available liquors on the table. The champagne cork won’t fit anymore so we fitted a small plastic bag over it. . . until one of the wines was finished. We used the wine cork.

I can’t get my scanner driver to work today. I was supposed to scan and color this digitally. Right now this crappy photo will have to do.

Have a happy new year, everyone!

May this year be filled with lots of opportunities and pleasant surprises!

I hope every year gets better and better.

More blessings to come! 😀

Rough Drawings from December 15

Daycraft Signature Sketchbook A5, Drawings

I’m glad Christmas is over. Now I have time to post these things. Haha. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.

I just had my other wisdom tooth removed yesterday so I really can’t do much but this. 😛

I can’t even laugh, my stitches would hurt. So I should avoid funny things on the internet.

These are my rough drawings from December 15, the day my two friends (Angelo and Abdul) and me went to the studio to practice animation, though we didn’t have to.

They practiced animation. I didn’t. Haha. I thought I should practice drawing more, so I just drew them the whole time.

We ate breakfast together. I drew Angelo while waiting for my noodles to cook.  This doesn’t look like him, though. Just his pose, hair and scarf.

Angelo again, while practicing digital animation. This time it looks like him. haha!

Abdul, at work.

My objective was to capture poses as quick as possible and to keep them rough. I need to work more on my anatomy, that’ I’m aware. Also, foreshortening and perspective.

Abdul’s profile, minus the glasses.

But I miss drawing faces. I tried to draw Abdul while he’s busy finishing his in-between assignment. I’m glad it looks like him. I thought it wouldn’t because I didn’t make him stay still. It’s not easy to draw a moving subject and it’s been a while since I last drew a face -and from life, as well.

Today I decided to color these drawings digitally. I’m  doing one of them right now. I’ll post them here when I finish. 🙂

*more drawings to come!!*

An-Artwork-A-Day, Day 45: Tea with My Good Friend

An Artwork A Day, Daycraft Signature Sketchbook A5, Drawings

This is a very very very late post. . . about that time that my friend and I had an “Art Day” that happened last June 2.

My friend and I went to this cool branch of Prosperitea.

An-Artwork-A-Day, Day 40: Soccer

(still part of my “late posts”)

I drew these last May 25. At my brother’s soccer game. Of course, I drew these before the soccer game —because I had to watch the game.

I try to draw my subjects as fast as I can because every time I draw, I never let people know what I’m drawing. I’m challenging myself to capture things as fast and as accurate as possible. I obviously need to work on it harder.

An-Artwork-A-Day, Day 39: With Urban Sketchers Philippines

It was last May 24. (this is one of my so-called “late posts”) I got up early in the morning because I wanted to join the Urban Sketchers Philippines sketchwalk event to celebrate their third anniversary.

It was a nice summer day, I took a long walk around Makati until I reached the venue, which was at Jaime Velasquez park, the same place of the Salcedo Saturday Market.

I went there alone, because I wanted to get to know people of the same interests. The way to find out who the sketchers were was to just simply take out your sketch materials and sketch. Soon enough I met a new friend and the organizers of the event found us.

I have never felt more relaxed. It’s a nice day and we were free to choose what we want to sketch. The aim of the group was ” to share a glimpse of the beauty (and not) of our cities or otherwise about life through our sketchbooks.” I don’t normally draw city structures and other objects. I usually draw people. I have to practice drawing different subjects.

This is my favorite part (also taken from their Facebook group “about” page):

“It has less to do with skill level or technique. What is more important is experiencing the process of looking, seeing, feeling and recording on paper.”

I just joined their Facebook page a week before and was really excited to go, even if I don’t know anyone there.

I made two sketches. One was a group of people sitting on a bench in front of me. Another was a of fire tree petal I saw fallen on another bench.

these are the group of people sitting in the bench in front of me, they don’t move much for hours so it’s alright. I was in a hurry to finish, though, because the sun was scorching on my arm

I used watercolor, unfortunately, I guess the paper was made for dry media so it easily wrinkled up. Also, the color absorbs too quickly that you can’t undo a mistake.

An-Artwork-A-Day, Day 37: Gray

An Artwork A Day, Daycraft Signature Sketchbook A5, Events

scan0029gma0.17crop150p

Sorry, been busy. This is a very late post, and it’s a very quick drawing. I did this last May 15.

I’m still organizing an outreach with my friend —-well, we’re still in the process of gathering funds/money-making for the outreach which will be at a later date. Please check out our blog for more details: http://bangkangpapelphilippines.wordpress.com/ 

Please also visit our facebook page. We could use some more likes. 😉

I mentioned before that we are gathering artworks as donations (we are going to sell them and then the proceeds will go to the project budget) I forgot to mention that we also accept artworks from artists outside the country if the person who wants to donate is willing to send the actual work here in the Philippines or if it is supposed to be in print form, we’ll be willing to print it ourselves. If transparency is a very big concern, don’t worry, we are very transparent about everything, we will make sure everyone knows where the money goes.

Here’s some of the artworks for sale. Some of those are my work. We also accept buyers from outside the country as long as they are willing to pay shipping fees. 🙂 As you can see, there’s not that many artworks yet, that is why we are still calling for donations and for art buyers. These are all for the sake of the children victims of the super typhoon Haiyan.

Right now we are also planning an event to further boost the project. I shall post about it as soon as we finalize it. Please stay tuned. It’s going to be good, we’re hoping for the best.

Tomorrow I’ll be attending an Art Show that I am a part of (one of the things I was busy about –making my art pieces. I made two.). I feel both excited and nervous as I don’t really know anyone there. Haha. I hope everything goes well. I shall post about it as soon as possible.
