Happy Whatever everyone. 
Ishtar - Fate Grand Order
Man, I made her look evil. Getting possessed by a goddess did wonders for Rin though.

Yet another FGO character. Haven't summoned her, but wow, I like her look. Especially that ginormous bow she has.

Quick pen and watercolor.
FGO Edmond Dantes
Since when did the Count of Monte Cristo start shooting lasers from his hands?

Been playing Fate Grand Order since last month. So much fun playing this guy, after I was lucky enough to summon him.

Quick pen, marker and watercolor piece.
Just returned from another summer trip! But it's different this time 'cause I spent it with a group. Travelling with company does have its plus sides (the most important of which is that I can save a lot on lodging). I don't know how I managed to pull off being with other people on that vacation - I guess it was just a lesson of tolerance.

I was with students doing their on the job training in companies at Cebu. Cebu, though industrialized and filled with buildings growing ever higher, is also famous for its natural wonders and pristine beaches, and with the help of a very good friend, he was a Jesuit brother and a true Cebuano, we were able to go on a boat tour around Mactan - an area known for white sand islands and underwater sanctuaries that are perfect for snorkeling and diving.

The best thing about that trip to Mactan is that I finally figured out how to use a damn snorkel! (Thanks bro!) And I've become confident floating on deep water now and I can somehow maneuver along the surface, well, as long as I have a life jacket. I actually don't know how to swim (and I really should learn it!). 

It was my first time seeing a real underwater coral reef scenario. Prior to this, I only saw them in nature shows or in books. There's such a difference seeing the real thing. I don't know how many hours I floated on the surface just staring at the busy spectacle below me. The fish were fearless of humans. They even approach you expecting food. Guess they're so used to getting fed, it was a marine sanctuary after all. And we did feed them. We just put out scraps of bread, and they'd swarm you like the paparazzi. Haha! 

I did do some solo wandering in Cebu too. I visited far flung Oslob for the white sand bar in Sumilon Island and the majestic Tumalog Falls. I should've gone whale shark watching but I didn't know how to snorkel then. It was only during the Mactan trip that I learned it. And that happened the day after my Oslob trip. Isn't that funny? 

So yeah, pretty awesome trip. And as usual, I've posted all the sketches I made and also some paintings in one deviation - here: Cebu May 2015 by Nick-Ian :D
