If at first… pt. 2

I had a watercolour commission due end of January and how do other artists do it? I haven't used watercolour since I got my tablet and it's been so jarring to switch back after working digitally for a month. I'm still going through old doodles and abandoned sketches to re-do or continue digitally and I'm … Continue reading If at first… pt. 2


If at first…

...it looks like shit, try again. Last November, I did this Bombshell Big Barda piece. Somewhere between the pencils and water colour, it transformed into this static thing with a weird face. I've been wanting to re-do it for a long time, but doing it traditionally is such a pain in the ass. I was having … Continue reading If at first…

Hausbands: Y'all sick of me drawing hockey boys in love yet? Well, too bad because the Check, Please! Year 3 finale was a doozy and it will take me months to get over it. Co-captains. Hausbands. Because it was bugging me every time I scrolled past it, I also re-painted the Nursey and Dex piece … Continue reading Gab, Currently XIV

Quiet Down

This was one of my first few sketches after getting my tablet, but somewhere during the colouring, it just looked wrong, I scrapped it. But I really liked how the face turned out, so when I found myself still keyed up after a fairly stressful work night, I decided to rework it into a new … Continue reading Quiet Down

Saved by Fandom 2017

About two years ago, I was in a bit of a strop over the art world, which resulted in me not painting or drawing anything. I tried easing myself back into it in 2016, but it really wasn't until mid-2017 that I found my stride again. And I found it in fandom. I've been lurking … Continue reading Saved by Fandom 2017

Gab (vs digital art), Currently XIII

I don't think I've ever been this productive. But It's easy to be able to squeeze in practice time when you don't have to set up a bazillion things to be able to paint, in my limited workspace. I've wanted to try this thing where I don't outline. I mean, I like my lines, but … Continue reading Gab (vs digital art), Currently XIII

Nuestra Señora de Alderaan

Braved the Manila Christmas gridlock to catch a screening of Star Wars: The Last Jedi last Thursday. A year after her death, I am still mourning Carrie Fisher. There was only one way to deal with all these sads that I've been sitting on for over a year, of course. https://twitter.com/teluete/status/941901258209705985 So I spent most of my … Continue reading Nuestra Señora de Alderaan

Like XO

My tablet arrived early this week, so I've been spending a few hours a day trying to get used to it. Drawing while looking at the monitor instead of your hands is such a bizarre sensation to get used to. While I'm still not completely sold on it, it does make some things easier. I'm … Continue reading Like XO

Gab, Currently XVII

I've been slowly, over the course of this year, getting my feet wet in the ocean that is digital art. https://twitter.com/teluete/status/877665080787083265 The catalyst being some illustrations I had to do for work in June. I had been stubbornly holding on to doing things traditionally, but it really didn't fit the project brief and I had … Continue reading Gab, Currently XVII

Tindera Life: Between the rush for preparations and my anxiety, I totally forgot to post an announcement here but I was at Komiket a few weekends ago! Shared a table with the totally rad ICEBOX, Nagi, and Corn. Komiket was my first time peddling my wares at a con. Super tiring, but a lot of fun. Shoutout … Continue reading Gab, Currently XVI
