I'm new to this forum, and this is my first post.
I'm a director/mograph designer from the Philippines and for the past 2 years I have been dabbling too much into motion graphics, that I rarely had time to draw again, only except if it's required for work. Recently I have been trying to get back into drawing again, and I figured joining this forum would really prompt me and inspire me to better myself in this field.
That said, hit me now with your most frank comments & criticisms!
From my DeviantArt journal:
"The text reads "ARE YOU A PUNK? Really? Awesome."
It's funny how some of these Pinoy punk kids, young as they are, start wearing shirts screaming 'Rancid', 'Sex Pistols', 'The Clash', etc, but i doubt if they really dig, or even heard, those bands' music. And I'm amused at their efforts to dress up themselves with all these pretentiousness. But I love it, because this colonial mentality thing is just so Pinoy."

The first one is titled 'Parashroomer', the next one is titled 'Ringmaster Zebastio and the Carnival of the Souless'
More here... First one titled 'Apo-Raza' and second one 'Davy Punk'd'. The latter is a punked up version of Davy Jones Enjoy
Character design for a 3D music video that we're working on...
Cool stuff dude, favorites are the first, second and fourth piece. Good job.
Here's Ali Beep Bop, the Russian Fairy. He's the gatekeeper of the Visual Carnival, a thing I'm writing as a comic book story
Ahh, breath of fresh air!! Great design elements to every image and I love how the crazy super-saturated colors in Davy Jones are flirting with disaster but still feel balanced.
The only thing I'm questioning is the hands of the main figure in "Panx ka pre?," they look to be on the small side, but I think you were trying to show them foreshortened as he swings the flag away from the viewer.
cool work, nice designs and the colours work really well for these.

Here are two new personal works, Suicyanide and The Sentient Bookshredder. The second one is part of a 4-piece set that went on exhibit in a local gallery here in the Philippines, and was later on bought by the Singapore Contemporary Art Museum. Please also check out my motion design work over at The Acid House Website

Something new again this week Where Batman tries to go organic but the plant itself turns out to be a FREAK!
Check out The Acid House Website for my motion design work, thanks
Brilliant. I love these, both the colours and line work are lovely. I think the first one is my fave, although Punk'd Davy Jones is an excellent idea.
i love your style and your ability to pull off these colors, post more please!
the multicolored pieces are my faves. I dig your style, welcome on CA.
Very cool style bro. Welcome to CA. Love the concepts and sense of humor.
I can relate to this a lot. Having grown up in the So. Cal punk/hardcore scene I find it amusing that I see here in Hong Kong so many kids that have managed to pick up on the punk fashion and stylings... but really know nothing about the music, the bands and or really what the scene was about. Much of the blame lays squarely with the media for trying to sell something. The mainstream music industry has run out of crap to produce so now they've grabbed onto 'punk' or so they think in order to keep profits high. Some of it is just human nature... but it'd be cool if the kids were into checking out the bands. I've yet to come across one 'punk' who knows the CroMags, Bad Brains, The Germs, Minutmen, Descendants, The Vandals or even Black Flag - christ the list can go on and on... but they all know Green Day and Rancid. LOL! Sad state of affairs.It's funny how some of these Pinoy punk kids, young as they are, start wearing shirts screaming 'Rancid', 'Sex Pistols', 'The Clash', etc, but i doubt if they really dig, or even heard, those bands' music.

Just peeped your site... wow. Nice work. I've been to QC many times... didn't think they had any good creative studios there. Interesting. I'll have to swing by and check it out on my next trip.
Good work on the Pacman stuff... can't beat PI for great boxers!!!!

@Sketch: Thanks, I enjoyed doing that Batman piece!
@Ming_64, b_rock: Thank you very much!
@Living Rope: Thanks, you've got very amazing work!
@Mambo: Yeah you can drop by in the studio if you're visiting. There are a number of studios in the Phil, but most do corporate work. Also not a lot of studios specialize in motion design out here.
Astig. Watchin you over at deviantart pero di kana ata nagpopost dun. No surprise you're gonna be making a big hit here with your style.
Keep it up meng, tindi ng works mo!
I love these. Especially the three pictures in the first two posts.
If I had to crit I'd say the ultra-smoothness of the photoshop blurs is sorta distracting on some of the pieces.. You can do the equivalent gradient by using other, more natural or aesthetically interesting, means. The PS blurs feel dead... mechanically slick.'
Keep up the great work.
At least Icarus tried!
My Process: Dead Rider Graphic Novel (Dark Horse Comics) plus oil paintings, pencils and other goodies:
My "Smilechild" Music. Plus a medley of Commercial Music Cues and a Folksy Jingle!:
@kev_ferrara: Thanks man for commenting, and I'm taking your advice. It'll come around in the pieces I'll be doing down the road.
For the meantime, I'm serving up these concept illustrations I drew for the music video me and my team over at The Acid House started some time ago. Unfortunately we couldn't get to continue work on it until all these client work die down a little.
I won't say much about it now, except for the fact that I drew it and my good friend Chester Ocampo colored it.
When the music video actually finishes up, I'll drop you guys the link.
Great paintings..The guy with mashrum is the beast!!!!!!
Send a email:
@ bhanu & RUDY 87:thanks a lot! I'm working on a new character design right now, and I'll be posting it here as soon as I finish
Here are some of my not-so-recent works:
'Twinkling Stars for Grandma'
'Hear Them Voices'
Hope you dig
