Spent the whole night last night drawing Colin O’Donoghue, and now it’s finally done!! I think I’m finally starting to get the hang of using a drawing tablet. (ps. thanks again, mom and dad! I love you both) 😊
For those of you who are not familiar with Colin, he acts as Captain Killian “Hook” Jones in a TV series called Once Upon A Time.

Decided to use my Wacom tablet for the first time today! 😊 And, well, I’m still trying to get used to it since I’ve never tried using one before and I already (kind of) got used to manual drawing so yeah. Anyways, for now, here are some screen shots of what I’ve been doing for the past few hours. I decided to draw Gwen Stacy from The Amazing Spiderman 2 movie, a.k.a. Emma Stone.

010214 - Flashlights and monochromatic feels

Spent the third day of the year with my two favorite cousins, Crisma and Cyra (plus, a dozen more relatives na hindi namin ka-close so yeah). Due to the countless awkward moments that we had experienced between short conversations with our grandparents, tito’s, and tita’s, we decided to escape the never ending ‘life’ questions by having a photo shoot inside my lair. 

The shots turned out pretty amazing! In fact, I didn’t have to post process them anymore. And to think that our light source only came from an iTouch’s flashlight utility. I’d definitely love to do this kind of shoot again next time!

There’s only a few more hours left until this year ends and I just want to take the time to dedicate this post to everyone who has been part of my 2013. Although my year didn’t exactly start out the way how I expected it to, it sure ended pretty well and I really am thankful, for everything.

Here’s to a fresh start.
