Sorry for the lack of updates. I haven't been making real drawings/paintings recently (again).
I've made a couple of sketches but I haven't started painting on them yet. They're on the backlog pile. ;_; I'm sure I'll get to work on them soon once I'm finished with some collaborations and requests. And school reports. I realize that time flies too fast when you paint. You start at 1PM and when you look up it's already 5PM and you barely made progress. /sigh I can't wait for school to end. Only 50-something more days to go and I become a free unemployed person.Small recap on exciting things this month:
1. The first week of January, I had a shoot with Regine David
and Pat Ramos
. I also got to model alongside with Phoebe Rutaquio
(who is an amazing naturale model, by the way). Please check out their photos.
By Kudos also to our wonderful teammates:
Make-up: Bernice Cid
Co-photographer: Ionne ~boozeberry
Assistants, flip girl and fan boy: Ysa and Quincy
Dresses by Cherry Veric and Marllon
sent me a note a few weeks ago, requesting ~Faythful
to make a layout out of Meet Me Halfway
and this is the final result:
I love it so much!
Everyone, please check it out~
3. I tried drawing a comic and I think I failed misserably! I'm slowly painting the pages but the supposed comic ended up resembling an illustrated storybook (something like a children's book or Stardust). /cries I'm still working on it but I slightly feel embarrassed that I really can't make figures move.
Comic and anything panel-driven isn't really my thing but this was a good opportunity to try it out *comic illustrator virgin*
but it's really impossible for me after so many repeated tries. I recently found out that I'm poor in translating images in my head unto paper.
I will post them here on dA when I'm done with them. I have great respect for comic book artists. Comic-making is really a difficult feat. All you comic artists are crazy geniuses. Please don't be surprised if I ask for your autograph out the blue or offer to wipe the sweat out of your face while you're drawing.
4. I'll Feature You!
I don't think I've been maximizing the use of my dA sub. I promise to update my dA journal at least once a month and abuse img src.
Anyway, here's something I've never done before. *dun dun dun*
I'm featuring the first 10 commenters who want to be featured here on my journal but there's a catch: You need to have at least 2 traditional artworks in your gallery. Please comment with their URLs so that I know that you're interested
. I'll feature 3 of your works (at least 1 of them is something you did traditionally). I'll probably come up with different themes next time.
GO GO GO!!!
---------- On a random note:(And I apologize in advance for being preachy but I really had to let this out)
I think photographers should always give due credit to their team. I've encountered a couple of photographers here on dA who either undercredit or totally omit the names of the people they have worked with. I think it's shameless to neglect mentioning your team/co-workers or even make it seem that you did all the work but in fact all you did was measure the light and hit the shutter. Who arranged the shoot, who did the make-up, who worked on the wardrobe, who did most of the thinking, who else majorly helped? Sometimes their work is a lot greater than yours.
pretty much summed up everything concerning this, "You're only as good as your team."
And "sorry I forgot"
doesn't cut it.
