iPad Practice: Overwatch – Talon’s Day Out

july 18 Overwatch reaper widowmaker sombra talon fanart ksolaris tanukidoodles

Okay so… YES. Still struggling to get used to this whole drawing-on-an-iPad thing.

I’m slowly getting accustomed to the grip of the stylus, as well as the weight and feel of the iPad itself. Still a little clunky but yeah… maybe I’m making progress haha

Anyway it’s a long weekend right now, and almost everyone’s on vacation (of course I still have work… because #workfromhomeproblems and all that…)

I figured Overwatch’s villain group should have a day off, too. So here’s Widowmaker, Sombra, and Daddy Reaper having a beach day before going back to base to tackle that pesky problem that is Overwatch haha. xDD

Oh, I DID change one thing, though… I decided that I’m too dumb to use Procreate Procreate is kind of a little heavy to use, so a friend recommended I switch to MediBang Paint. It does feel a lot more like a combination of Photoshop and PaintTool SAI to me, both of which I’m familar with, so it actually felt a little nicer to use. Also they have a lovely library of halftones, backgrounds, and visual references to use so that’s fantastic. ❤

iPad Practice: Overwatch – Sexy Junkrat

Yes, I’m still doing the whole iPad practice thing. :v

Anyway here’s my junkboi, Overwatch’s Junkrat.

Yes, I am aware I may have bishonen-ified him quite a bit.

Whatevs, mah boi is underappreciated and needs all the love he can get. ❤

(yep, still using Procreate…)

iPad Practice: Overwatch – Symmetra

july 10 Overwatch Symmetra fanart ksolaris tanukidoodles

 

As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve been setting about trying to get used to working with an iPad, a new stylus, and Apple illustration apps (in this case, Procreate).

How’s my progress so far…?

Well… POTATO.

Ahahahah it’s hard. oTL

I’m not used to an iPad’s interface as I’m a devout PC/Android user, and the Pencil stylus takes some getting used to, as the way it’s shaped is a little strange to grip, in my opinion. I’m still learning how to deal with the edges.

Sigh. Hopefully it will get better T__T

iPad Practice: Persona 5 – Futaba

*meep*

HELLO. YES. I AM INDEED STILL ALIVE. 8D

Ah, sorry I haven’t been posting for like, a full year. I do have this bad habit of starting blogs that I end up never updating. I’m really trying very hard to kick that habit. T__T;;

Anyway posting up some doodles.

I recently decided to get myself a cheap, secondhand iPad 4 and a Pencil by FiftyThree stylus. I can’t afford a new tablet right now, and my old one is REALLY shot at this point, but I’ve been hankering to make digital drawings again.

So yeah, cheap, old iPad it is hahaha. xDD

To be honest, the only other time I’ve ever owned an Apple product before this is maybe… an old Shuffle and a very old iPod Touch. HERP.

For now, here’s me trying to get used to the feel of drawing on an iPad. Everything still feels clunky to me right now, but hopefully it gets better eventually.

(Made with Procreate)

My Favorite Dream

Yeah, I’m still enjoying myself playing around with the black pad and silver gel pen from the previous post lol.

In any case, as much as I want to learn how to make these nice, polished illustrations that I see so many awesome artists make, my guilty pleasure is quick, messy drawings. ❤ I LOVE going through artists’ sketch books and drafts, and I actually do admire artists who can somehow make squiggles look, so, so polished! You know it takes skill when they can make SQUIGGLES look elegant.

I’m not quite there yet, but hey. =))))

Anyway, here’s a quick doodle of Dream of the Endless, from one of my favoritest bestest graphic novels of all time, Sandman (Vertigo Comics), penned by my favoritest bestest author of all time, Neil Gaiman.

Good night and sweet dreams. 😀

PS: YES, I SUCK AT TYPOGRAPHY AND MY HANDWRITING IS CHICKEN SCRATCH T__T

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. =)))

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

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 Pascual (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).

Mr. Freedom: Random redhead receptionist

Mr. Freedom Marie Madeleine William Klein John Abbey

Yep, playing some more blog post catch-up. 😀

Here’s another character from the day’s favorite movie, Mr. Freedom. It’s actually just a random character who doesn’t even have a name, I think (unlike Marie-Madeleine from the previous blog post), but I loved how she reminded me of the mascot for Wendy’s Burgers, AND her lines consisted of stuff you’d probably hear a J-RPG NPC say. =))))

In the meantime, I need to get back to work LOL.

Puella Magica Princess Kenny

So we finished playing South Park: The Stick of Truth last night. You know, the nice new game from the lovely folks over at Obsidian and Ubisoft.

If you ever loved South Park, if you have ever LARPed, if you still think “PP” is a funny word (HEHEHEHEEH…), please go play this game. IT’S SO MUCH FUN. =)))) And yes, as is the usual brand of South Park humor, there will be a whole bunch of political incorrectness. For instance, one of the classes you can pick is “Jew”… because everyone is a little bit racist.

But yes, we enjoyed this game quite a lot, and as a friend has pointed out, it might actually be a better RPG than a bunch of other J-RPGs at the moment. Sure, its story is… well… the stuff you can expect from a show like South Park, but its game elements, system, etc. were actually, surprisingly, well-polished.

LOL, anyway, I’ll leave you with Princess Kenny for tonight. In the meantime, I’m pretty tired, so I’ll go collapse now. 

Good night. 😀
