Then maybe I won’t be afraid…

Maybe I Won't Be Afraid, 2009

Things are a little hectic here in Manila. Typhoon Ketsana submerged more than half the metro in flood water and we’ve got two more typhoons coming our way, one of which is scheduled to hit us this weekend.

The rain frightens me now. If I had gills and a tail, then maybe I won’t be afraid.

  • Line art is pencil on sketchbook paper. Textures added in Photoshop.
  • Watercolour textures used were made by Resurgere, a non-commercial stock resource on deviantArt.

I’m experimenting on a new watermark. I’m rediscovering Baybayin and thought it would be nice to incorporate it in.

  1. that is sooo pretty! also thanks for linking resurgere. lotsa useful stuff there.

    i wish i’m a mermaid. then we can survive global warming too.

  2. I really like the simple elegance of the line art, and it looks absolutely lovely with the textures and colors you chose. Aren’t those stock artist’s on deviant awfully wonderful? Back when I did more drawing, I loved to use them for references.

    I heard about the typhoons today from a client with family in the Philippines. I hope there is not too much damage, and that you stay safe.

    1. Thank you so much! 😀 Yeah, deviant art makes it so easy to look for great stock.

      The second storm’s avoided manila and we are all thankfully pretty dry. Thanks again. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Nicole! 😀 Do you want a completely new one, or I could make you a print of this one?
