x-men front man

Posted in Comics, Pin-ups, Sketches at 12:08 pm by zeruleandruid

Another colored piece using photoshop. The x-men all-time favorite character, Wolverine as seen here with dead ninjas of course right after a blood-drenched battle. They might be well-trained assasins but against a mutant with adamantium bone structure and a near immortality mutant factor, they are just perfect subjects for work-out.

A colored version from my previous post “Bugno”. With Photoshop, I decided to put  color on this out of experimenting and curiosity of what would this artwork looked like if it has colors. Though I am not really good and adept in using photoshop, I just used the basic tools and brushes of which I was more comfortable and considered easy to utilize in digital paintings.

it’s been a while since I made a side- trip to my wordpress blog and added this new post. This piece shows  a scene of   two famous creatures of Philippine folklore fight each other in competition for food or teritory. The ungo is depicted here as a monster with tentacle-hairs of which it can use to apprehend or choke its victims before it gorges down their internal organs. As for the  infamous aswang which is depicted here as a werewolf look-alike, seems to justify its ability to shape-shift yet it was more described in folklore to be capable of  fully turning  into a dog, a cat or even a sow (female pig) though I decided to visualized it like this to add more mobility and fighting prowess to it against the ungo. I am still really looking forward to make a story out of these characters and put them in comic book  very soon.

some kinda tribute to the most idolized character of the marvel universe, yeah said so,the x-man  Wolverine.  done this one with a ballpoint and a pinch of imagination. i just don’t know what reasons other people have for liking this character but for sure the same as mine, his mutant-healing factor(scientific sense for immortality) and his indestructible adamantium skeleton and claws.oh well, nuff said, just drop your C & C’s for this piece of sketch.

some kinda x-men huh?

some kinda x-men huh?

indeed x-men really filled our minds those days. this drawing was a collaboration where i did the pencils and my bud of the same weather (i mean feather…sounds gayish so don’t mind if i changed it)Chummy, the main man finished it off with his inks. in actuality, this was our first attempt to make a comic book out of these groupie i even forgot their group’s name but(i hate  using this word)it suddenly slipped out of our interest faster than speed of light, kapish!just because of too many priorities, i guess, at that time and also when college life was a ‘constant struggle’ for you know what projects, plates, the forever dreaded examinations and other stude’s concerns. like this one, we both have many attempts in making comics both solo and collaboration and unfortunately ended in the recycle bins of our brains. yet, i don’t make promises but someday i would (we would) finally justify ourselves by accomplishing even at least one comic creation before our imaginations and creative juices dried out literally. C and C’s is free-for-all,Worldlings!

i'm hunting rabbits!

i'm hunting rabbits!

i’ve made this guy here way back in college as one of my projects in a  minor subject. roughly drawn and colored with  pencils,  art pen and colored pencils (that ended up  like  being colored with crayons). colored pencils has somewhat another kind of render effect  if  just properly used  or  professionally used  (of which i failed to do obviously here in this piece). yup, i got no choice at that time but to use them since it’s faster and practical to use(compared to water color, pastels,acrylic, poster, etc..i’ll just post a sample of  a drawing that was properly  rendered by a professional using colored pencils. don’t mind of your comments and crits, worldlings.

Mot-mot’s Capt. N12

CaptainN12sketcheltonsmall as what Chummy, my best-bud requested, i made this pin-up for the comics that our co-league Motmot is planning to release this month of July 2009. my comment for this character is that he is funny-pero-medyo-bastos,hehehe(corny huh?)Yup, i’ve drawn this as Chummy instructed and voila! this sketch actually paved the way of my come-back to sketching-mood with the truth that its been a while that i’ve rested my imaginations for so many priorities both at work and fatherhood. you’re all clear to comment Worldlings.

zeruleandruid5smallmy very own concept of the mythical being of filipino folklore. of which continues to inspire me and hopefully, i’ll be doing a short story comics about this horrific subject. i admit that these night creatures has been a very good topic in literature, movies and art and have been mystifying me since childhood. in fact, i even have a personal experience about these creature when i was a child literally speaking( i hope i do sound convincing).maybe in my future blogs, i will post my unforgettable or i may say horrible experience. next time WORLD.

some more weirdos for you WORLD. these two just came out of my mind as i can easily conceptualized things, the ugly things to be more precise compared to the ‘beautiful ones’. well, you can’t blame me because i find the weird things to be more artistic and much more easy to imagine. No offense to other artists out there, just my point of view.

character sketch2

a revised sketch of character sketch 1. noticeably, i improvised its look by making it more insect-looking(the eyes, mouth and armor). yet, i’m not trying to compromise its main features( the octopus part) since i’m actually making this character based on my “future- novel- of -some- sort”. feel free to fire up some comments or suggestions WORLD!
