AB was always requesting for a sunset from me before, so finally here's her sunset.... With a little bit of my touch in the foreground of course ha-ha....! Here's my version of a majestic looking Philippine White Heron.... Aren't they lovely....? I always see this bird in the rice fields when i was still in the philippines.... But you know what, i've never done this before in colors.... Actually, this is only the second time that i've drawn this bird in colors, the first one was with my last drawing below.... =D

A couple of hours ago i was thinking of a scene to draw, something Filipino again of course ha-ha....! It's been a while since i last updated my blog so i was really trying to finish this as fast as i could tonight.... I was thinking of another landscape, but a plain landscape would be a bit lifeless isn't it....? That's why i've end up adding this Carabao and its calf in the foreground.... Looks alright....! I call this one, "Beast of burden" because this beast is always involved in the hardworks and heavy loads in the farm....

It's been a while since i last posted a new drawing here, so before everyone gets bored of coming over and waiting for a new one to be posted, here's another drawing that i did just a couple of hours ago hope you'll like this one.... This is my imagination gone too far ha-ha....!
Actually the whole idea of this composition is not about the naked lady, but about the blanket she's sitting on....! I was just trying to find out if i know how to draw a large piece of fabric with all those folds, twists, and wrinkles on it.... The naked lady is just an added attraction....! =D

It's been a while since my last art.... I was so busy doing a lot of things lately plus a job that i've found online so the only time that i can do some blogging is during the weekends.... Anyways, here's another one for yous.... This time it's about the Laundry Lady or Labandera in Filipino....

Since the whole world is going to celebrate Valentines Day soon, i wanted to share to you this drawing that i've really composed today for the coming day of love and lovers.... I call this piece Harana (serenade).... Well, this doesn't usually happen under a mango tree like my version here because the parents then were very strict, but i think this is close enough....! =D

I really don't know what to post today, but i was so desperate to update because i haven't done that for quite a while now that's why i have no choice but to post this one.... It's a bit cruel though, this is shall i say one little cruel corner of my culture ha-ha....!

While nursing my sore left shoulder and arm, my right hand was busy doing this....! Actually, i'm not sure if i did it right here.... I really don't remember how a Kalesa looks like, this is just how i've imagined it.... This is the taxi cab of the old days in the philippines.... The humble and undying Kalesa is still being used in some other parts of the country but mostly for tourism purposes only nowadays....

Probably i was just hungry or maybe i missed the taste of Lechon (roasted pig on bamboo pole) that i got inspired to compose this drawing last night and it came up just fantastic....! You have no idea how grateful i am to have this software, i can do magic with it....! Anyways, this is a very common scene during any town fiestas anywhere all over the philippines where the humble Lechon is always the star, i wonder why is that ha-ha....! Maybe too yummy huh....!
The only thing missing which i didn't include here is the large noisy crowd that's always present in celebrations like this, or else this composition will look like a football stadium full of fans ha-ha....! By the way, one week from now in the town where i came from back home they are also going to celebrate their first festival for a patron saint this year, which i will miss-out again....! Just look at that yummy Lechon, yumm....! =D

Where there were small towns, with small crowded streets, and less heavy busy traffic, amidst the towering highrises of a modern and progressive city, the rolling of an old tyre always exists.... Interestingly, street games for kids the less luxurious ones are strangely seasonal too, i don't know the reasons why but that's how they are eversince....!
Here's another one.... Inspired by my entry about "Rooster and Hen" being featured in one lovely new blog-friend's amazing blogsite.... I thought, why not give it another go and draw another one....! But i will not call this a rooster or a crowing rooster anymore, but instead i'm calling this art, "The break of dawn" because it's about the break of dawn and the roosters doesn't crow at midnight, they crow at dawn di ba he-he....!
I remember the moment when i finished drawing the "Rooster and Hen" that i was even laughing because i couldn't at all believe that i've really done that drawing myself ha-ha....! I really thought that it was just a sudden struck of luck completing it successfully....!
Driven by that same thought, there i was this morning, challenging myself once more to grab a pen aiming to draw it again.... Well it doesn't necessarily have to look like a reproduction of the same art but instead a totally different art as long as it includes a rooster in its composition, and finally here it is....! Funny thing is that, i couldn't believe that i did this one either ha-ha....! Anyways, at least now i've proven to myself that.... still i couldn't believe that it was me....! =D
By the way, Paulette's site is a HUGE collection of artists and their arts.... I was delighted to see some of the beautiful artworks and creations by professional, amateurs, hobbyists and crafters, and arts by invisible artists like yours truly there.... Don't forget to check her out.... It was amazing, i've even saved a few of those site's URL in my computer, so in that way i can easily access and read some more about their lives, how they've started and their arts.... You know, artists loves to read about the life story of another artist too, it's like a more solid source of inspirations for us.... Thanks again Paulette....! =D
And also to Redlan, who featured me in his blog tonight, this entry is for you too Red....! Please don't forget to visit Redlan's blog as well, it's full of interesting topics, you won't regret your visits there ha-ha....! =D

A rice farmer working in the field.... This method of farming using a buffalo and a plow is still widely used in the philippines today.... This whole composition is a display of great strength and determination....

This idea came to me while i was washing a pair of pants today humming a very popular filipino folk song about a Nipa hut surrounded by diffirent kinds of vegetables.... I got inspired by a song ha-ha....! Nipa by the way, as it is commonly known in the Philippines is a palm tree variety that only grows amongs the mangroves along the banks of shallow and muddy rivers....

This is my version of a Rooster and its Hen.... Still using my Corel Draw software.... Okay ba....? It's not as hard to do as those ones i did in oil before because i can easily draw and colour this software-generated art less the trouble of preparations and mixing of colours, and most of all the mess, but still this kind of art helps me a lot in exercising my hand as well as my brain to further improve my talent and skills....

Ang Durian bow....! This is probably the only fruit that i haven't tried yet in my whole life and i guess i'll never will ha-ha....! It has a reputation of being the most stinkiest of all fruits....
