For a few hours yesterday...
For a few hours yesterday we were there together.
There were some hairy moments and I probably pissed you off once or twice but…
For a few hours yesterday we were there together.
There were no moments when you were just with me alone or anything and in that manner we can definitely say nothing happened but…
For a few hours yesterday we were there together.
It was kinda hard but I managed to somehow keep my emotions in check more or less (though perhaps with a moment of lapse of two each lasting no more than a few seconds) but I think I can say that I kept myself professional n’ all but…
Sure I gotta work harder. Grow up. Stuff. Prove myself.
But wait.
What do I have to prove?
To you? To the world? To the office? To my family? To my friends, old campus buddies? To my church community? To my neighborhood neighbors? To the street vendors and beggars and street kids on the streets? To the villagers in Java or the borders of Bor

Re-painting medium-resolution cell phone photos
I've recently began dabbling with SAI paint tool and a 2nd-hand Wacom Bamboo. My first attempts have been to re-paint cell phone photos, doing them for free.

I am interested in doing more, and will do more as time & opportunity permits. In between my day job that is ^^" ...And as I am doing them as side jobs in my spare time, do expect them to take a while; these two examples took about 6 weeks from start of commission to delivery of final version, do expect them to take at least as much time if you ask me for one ^^"

I will deliver the final artwork as 1600 x 1600 pixel .png files, safely printable at digital printing services for sizes up to more or less 60 cm x 60 cm. I reserve the right to keep any copies of the original digital files, but I do not plan on offering them to anyone else for reprint.

And yeah I think it'd be nice if I can install Krita 64 and do these sketches using Open Source software of something... Or maybe I can earn enough cash to actually buy a SAI license someday ^^"


Ferdinand F. Zebua
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
For a few years I had declared that I was a "former CG artist"; that was from around 2010 to early 2013. I've recently started drawing again as a hobby, encouraged by co-workers & former co-workers, and given two opportunities to draw/illustrate for cash.

I used to be a "professional" graphic designer for some small local advertising agencies here in Jakarta. I don't see me returning to that field yet any time soon. But I hope I can draw better and better still. We'll see :))

[I just noticed that the following items are throwbacks from older versions of the deviantID data forms... I'm gonna leave them as is for now, even though some of these are outdated by now...]

Current Residence: Jakarta, Indonesia
deviantWEAR sizing preference: XL
Favourite style of art: minimalist iconic vector line-art, 2B pencil sketch, freestyle expressive blogging
Operating System: WinXP SP2 (used to dual-boot with Linux, but...) (and yes I have worked with a Mac before)
MP3 player of choice: Winamp 5.x
Shell of choice: Gnome (ideally), WinXP default shell (pragmatically)
Wallpaper of choice: anything homebrew
Favourite cartoon character: Inuyasha (currently. Blame my sister.)
Personal Quote: Do. Don't think.
Hey guys, just wanted to drop in and mention that I have an ello profile: and that I've posted a handful of sketches/drawings there (five, to be exact).

Will update this post with direct links to them if possible, and/or repost them here at dA as opportunity permits.

/posted from the dA Android app.

/Update: Here's a link to a listing of all my original drawings at Ello:…

And it seems that Journals created from the mobile app can be edited; but one must edit the text from StashWriter. I don't know whether or not this is the case with all dA journals currently, whether Journals written after or before the latest dA update. I personally don't mind having to use StashWriter though. (So far.)
