Pete, a friend of mine asked me to make him a drawing of Lapu-Lapu as an "Angel Warrior" to use for his tattoo.
Lapu-Lapu was a warrior king who killed Ferdinand Magellan in the battle of Mactan, a small island south of the Philippines.
Here's Pete's tattoo of his angel warrior idol.

I thought I'd start my post with this old drawing of mine that I made in 2001. The actual drawing was inked on a tracing paper and colored it under with color pencils and placed it on a painted BG to create the feel and look of an actual cel art. I later on enhanced it in photoshop.
This is my cartoon version of "Darna", a Filipino counterpart of "Wonder Woman". Darna was originally created as a comic book superhero of Mars Ravelo in the 50's . It's about a young disabled girl named "Narda" who turns into a superwoman everytime she swallows the "myterious stone" from outer space and shout her name backwards like "DARNA!".
This comicbook superhero also made it to films and played by numerous actresses in the Philippines. I hope I've done justice to her in this version I made.
I've been visiting and looking at all kinds of blogs in the internet for quite a while and thought it's cool to have my own spot also. Unfortunately due to the nature of my work, the plan of having one remains a plan for two years. My friends and fellow artists have been pushing me to do it for a long time, and it needs for me to really be out of work to finally have the time and work on my own blog. I'll start posting my old drawings first and then the new ones later. So, here goes!
