Just came across your blog and pictures from Adriana's youtube channel, and I just want to say that I love them all! They look really good and I can relate to some of them. Keep up with the good work and don't let life get you down. I've been down very badly previously too, so you're never alone. Plus, you're way more talented than I am too! =)
Ohhh, why am I receiving this kind message?
Thank you so much! I’ll try to make more art this weekend.
Hey, I just wanted to say... my new year's resolution was to start drawing again (weeeeell, more generally to be more creative) and when I see your drawings I'm torn between jealousy and pure admiration :-) I really like what you do!
I have the same New Year’s Resolution! Thank you, you flatter me too much! Please don’t be jealous! I’m sure you can come up something uniquely on your own!
Wow; what an amazing blog! I originally came on here to look at more of your ATLA/FMA art, but now as I read your childhood/college life reflection posts, it makes me reflect on my life's dreams (no matter how preposterous they were!)! If you really want something, you'll find a way to achieve it, and so I wish you good luck in achieving your dreams!
Wow. Just, wow. Thank you very much! It’s really great to know that my blog’s worth reading to someone. Gosh, bless you and I truly hope you can achieve yours too! Good luck to us! <3
If there’s anything I miss right now, it’s coffee painting.
There’s just too much digital stuff in my life right now and to be honest I’m getting sick of it. I feel like I’m becoming too reliant to its powers, that sometimes, I feel like I only created 50% of my work and the rest is thanks to the almighty layer-opacity-color-adjustment-mask digital tool. I don’t know. I don’t understand myself. Digital painting is cool, it’s just that… ahhh. I just miss my first love: Traditional art.
I guess I’m just frustrated because for almost 6 months all I do is work on my laptop. Funny thing is that I rarely pick up my pen and paper and it felt like I forgot how to write. My penmanship became even more horrible. There was a time when I went to the bank to renew my ATM card. I had to sign 7 times to confirm my signature because each sign looks completely different, they couldn’t verify the same person signed it even though I’m right in front of them ahaha what am I saying, this case is completely different from drawing, damn you Tissine
I swear after I finish this semester, I’ll paint again on paper. Gosh I miss the smell of coffee on paper.
If you remember my post about the Horizons poster, well, here’s the official print of Horizons! The cover is sooo brilliant, my co-artists are soo talented, arrrgh everything in this issue is freakin epic!
The pretty cover was made by our awesome and really nice art editor, Patmai :)
I am particularly happy yesterday cuz I got a copy of my hard work. It’s soooo my mini-dream to see my graphic novel published along with great artists in the school since I first entered college. *Sniffs* I’m a happy child.
Enough with the mini drama. Ang Advenchur ni Kiko (The Adventure of Kiko) is here!
It’s the cover spread of my 12-page graphic novel inside the book. We have 6 stories inside + gallery. It’s so beautiful <3
All pages in my story were rendered with Coffee + blue watercolor on watercolor paper and post processed on Photoshop :)
I raised my hand and my teacher called me to answer the question. I was wrong. Then, my seatmate said to me:
Think first before you answer. Don’t answer if you’re not sure.
And I was like: “Watch out! We got a kiddy badass over here!”
Lol JK. I was a kid back then and I just felt embarrassed when she said that. Right now, I just couldn’t believe that someone at that early age would lecture me like that… I can never forget that girl. :))
I really appreciate people who randomly talks to me.
I’m usually shy to start a conversation or even approach someone I know personally, IDK why… I just feel happy when they start appearing in my IM/chatbox. After they do that, I’m more comfortable to talk to them. :)
