YES, I’M ALIVE. And have a ton of blog backlog! LOL yeah,Β I had to focus on a bunch of projects recently, which meant that I ended up with aΒ stackΒ of daily unfinished/unposted doodles. But I think things are easing up a bit, or at least I’m getting the semblance of a schedule together, so hopefully I can get back on track. >_<;;

Anyway, here’s chibi Jose Rizal.Β LOL I seem to have taken it upon myself to make a whole bunch of hero chibis since I’ve been enjoying it quite a bit. So yeah. πŸ˜€

Just a really quick ink sketch this morning.Β Trying to practice a bit of posing and perspective LOL.

Also, drawing feet SUCK. X__x;;

Random Doodle: The Fairy of the Munchies

Yay, more blog catch-up posts LOLOLOLOL.

Also, it’s around lunch time where I am right now, so I guess this sort of explains today’s doodle. Herp. =))

 

Chibi Supremo: Andres Bonifacio

‘Atapang ‘atao!

LOL. Yeah, still working on some post backlogs. XDD

Anyway, Chibi Lapu-Lapu got me started on this whole thing (thank you, Tepai!), so I figured it prolly wouldn’t hurt to do a few more cute-fied national heroes. Heck if it can make a kid or two take interest in our national heroes, I think I’ll be pretty happy with that, haha!

So anyway, here’s our dear Supremo, Andres Bonifacio, showing everyone how much he hates that cedula. =)))

How the weather affects productivity

So summer has pretty much started creeping up on us here in Manila, and the days have been getting really warm and humid. So when it started raining yesterday, and we were getting cool winds and nice temperatures… a change of plans occurred LOL.

Well, I’m making up for it now LOLOLOL TOTALLY WORTH IT. ❀

Random Doodle: Corset

Finally got around to making a doodle that features one of the things that I am quite fond of: Corsets. ❀

Also I just bought a fresh 0.1 pen, so I’m enjoying it at the moment, hahaha!

In the meantime, I need to get some sleep.

Good night!

Random Doodle: Tea Makes Everything Better

Because it does. XDDD

A bit of post catching-up, as I gear up for another very busy week ahead. πŸ˜€

Put the kettle on!

Belated Happy Birthday, Gabriela Silang!

Phew. Just got back home from a long day out (yes, I actually do leave our house sometimes…) and I’m just posting this before I collapse into bed again LOL.

I kinda got into the groove after yesterday’s Lapu-Lapu doodle, so I decided, why not make one for Gabriela Silang? Another Filipino national hero, I always enjoyed reading about her story when I was in primary school, because she just seemed so bad-ass. I also figured that she deserved a chibi since a.) March 19th was her birthday, and b.) my family’s roots are also in the province of Ilocos Sur, so yeah. It seemed apt.

And with that, I’ll go into coma now. Yes, I still owe this blog a ton of posts, and hopefully I can get around to that soon. Good night. X__x;;

Maktan 1521: Chibi Lapu-Lapu

.76

YES. I AM STILL ALIVE. X__X

LOL sorry for the break in posts. I actually have a bunch of doodles that I’ve been doing everyday, but this week has just been INSANE, so I haven’t been able to sit down and color/post/write. X__x;;; So yeah, expect more catch-up posts from me within the next few more days. ^_^;;

Anyway, here’s a chibi version of Lapu-Lapu, one of our national heroes, who was the first guy to resist colonization, and was the guy who totally kicked Magellan’s butt. On top of that, he is also the hero in the graphic novel /indie comic Maktan 1521, a creation of awesome Filipino artist and friend, Tepai PascualΒ (GO CHECK IT OUT, EVERYONE).

In the meantime, I’ll just go rest a bit for now, and then panic and flail later (hey, I’m learning to schedule).

Random Doodle: Freckles

Oh my gods… could it be…? Am I finally back to my normal posting schedule? XDDD

LOLOLOL Ugh, talk about a whole lot of backlog. Really hoping to never have to play post catch-up again, because it feels like a very, very slippery slope indeed. @_@;; We’ll see, I guess. I still have a pile of drawings to work on at the moment, but hopefully this teaches me a lesson to manage my time better. Hopefully. >_<;;

Anyway, here’s Sunday’s doodle. Still trying to figure out NOSES, so I’m going with the Archie Comics nose for now. It’s a pencil drawing, all done with my trusty mechanical pencil (which has long since been missing its cap, so the eraser keeps falling off…) and a Q-tip (because my shader has also been long since missing).

Also, please don’t mind the weird, dark lines all over the place. I drew this on the back of a page in my sketchbook that has inked lineart on it. Yes, I’ve been recycling pages in my sketchbook, because it’s almost full, AND I CAN’T FIND ANOTHER ONE EXACTLY LIKE IT. ;__; Β AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Anyway, back to work for me now. XDD
