Journal
Respect Yourself
My friend shared this video to warn other artists about how she was taken advantage of, and I believe this is a very important message that every artist should hear.
I've lost count of how many times someone, be it a big corporation or an individual, have asked me to illustrate for them for free. It will always go something like this "You draw this for us, and we will include your name in the credits. That's good publicity for you!" as if such a pathetic offer holds any merit.
There was one specific case where a guy wanted to use my drawing as a book cover but didn't want to pay. He said he might print up to 50,000 books, so that's like an amazing offer of 50,000 views for me right? Wrong. 50,000 is nothing. We live in the information revolution. Don't forget we have places like Deviantart, tumblr, and all those social networking sites. Sharing art, like sharing any information, has never been easier. You don't have to degrade yourself for some disrespectful publisher to get you art se

Hi everyone,

It's been a really long while since I was here in deviantart. Well, I just want to say that I am back, and to start things up, I will be doing the 100 themes challenge (variety 1) from :icon100themeschallenge:. It's something that I've always wanted to do since I started here in Deviantart 10 years ago (on my previous account -> :iconspinelquartz:). I never finished it then, hopefully this time I will! I recently picked up watercolours and wanted to practice. I think the different themes could give me something to draw from. So, it could be 100 themes challenge in watercolours! :XD: But who knows? I might just use other different media (I am more proficient with photoshop after all :p).

In case you were wondering, my Tales of Hetalia fan-manga is on hiatus indefinitely... I just don't have any motivation right now to do it. Maybe you can convince me haha! Also, I'm not gonna pretend that my PhD isn't eating most of my time (and I'm not paid enough for it).

Anyways, here's to my come-back! :D

Activity

Eclipse
This inspired by Yohitaka Amano's illustrations and traditional Japanese paintings. I drew the original line art for this painting about a month ago and first used gouache to colour it. I've since updated the line art idea to show more East Asian influence and decided to use my traditional Japanese watercolours. The metallic colours don't show up in the scanned version, but its quite amazing.

I made a time lapse video of how I painted this and uploaded it to my youtube channel here -> youtu.be/O5nayI_XdHw if you're interested :D

Kuretake Gansai Tambi 36-piece set
Kuretake Gansai Tambi Starry colours set

Encantada
I wanted to take on painting the Filipino myth of "Maria Makiling." Encatada is the (colonial) Filipino word for fairy or goddess. I painted this on Arches hot pressed watercolour paper which I didn't stretch so it buckled a little bit. I'm such a noob. I used M.Graham watercolours for the paint.

I uploaded a time lapse video of how I painted this on my youtube channel youtu.be/mJvlKKrBvVo


Materials
M. Graham & Co. artist watercolours
