Work In Progress: Lightning This Evening
This WIP is more of a sneak peak of my latest work. I am not yet sure if this will be accepted or not on Threadless’ Thor Design Challenge so I have decided not to show the whole design first. It has been a while since I made an illustration.. And it feels so good to make one again!
The Dark Lord!
After so many months, I’m doing another illustration which is very productive of me! Do I deserve a round of applause, maybe? No? Okay. Anyway, I think it’s a good way to let my creative juices flow once again. It’s about time to be back. The time which I need to prepare myself on the journey I will soon embark. Ha. Ha. So much drama. Haha.
The title of my post, however, is very intriguing. First, it is kind of related on what I am doing. Can you guess what is it? Second, the partial results of the election happening here in the Philippines make me sad. The Dark Lord has seriously come.. A nightmare for all Filipinos.. Just kidding. I just hope each one of them will do their own duties and be a great senator as expected. Lastly, I aborted the Harry Potter Poster (WIP#1 & WIP#2) I did some months ago because I felt guilty for copying a lot of illustrators (in one way.. or another. I’m gonna find ya, gonna getcha getcha hahaha). Also, I terribly failed at doing the composition, which was very important to the design. Lesson learned: Plan the layout / composition strategically. I should have been wise! Since I like how the poster turned out, I’m going to post it some other time. Stay tuned!
Here’s a little teaser on what I’ve submitted to Graphika Manila. I actually don’t know if they will still accept this entry because I sent it like around 11:59 - 12:03 am (Friday night). Gmail had some bugs and didn’t let me send the first emails. Good thing that Google Drive solved the problem; but, the question still remains on my mind whether they will see and review this. Hopefully, yes! And this is my first artwork of 2013. Hooray!
Mr. Beard Guy
It’s been so long.. that I haven’t seen your tumblr posts (Trying to be funny huhu). Anyway, my computer is kinda broke and I’m still in the process of fixing it. That’s why I don’t update that much now. :-( Luckily, my mom bought me a new laptop in preparation for my college life. Hooray for the glaring laptop!
Just a quick update: I’ve been working on this Harry Potter poster for the past few weeks. The Black Guy, Severus Snape, was the first teaser I’ve shown. Mehehehe. Two more characters before I finish this one. Expect this to be posted before the month ends! So, advance Merry Christmas to everyone.
The Black Guy
Here’s a sneak peek on what I’m currently working on. Guess what, it’s a Harry Potter fanart! Like what I have said on my post regarding the Movie Taglines of Harry Potter, I’m not that a die-hard fan but still I like the book and movie themselves.
Quite awesome how Ken Taylor can do intricate swirls and swooshes in his artworks while having that great design in them. Also, the complementary colors he choose do blend well! Take a look at his works guys, you won’t regret it!
So this is inspired by him. Me, trying those fancy swirls with a touch of my style, I guess? Hope to finish this by the end of the week. Stay tuned!
