Sabong (Cockfighting)

-----------------( click image to enlarge )
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....!


It's like one of those gladiator thingy, the roosters here will fight, bleed, and die like those early days roman gladiators.... I did this one last night with a few quick strokes of my tablet's pen while i was talking to AB.... I just like the way i've captured the movements here but not really planning to post it, but look who's talking now.... =D

Tagged by Paulette

Also, i've been tagged by Paulette.... This tag is for five things you don't know about me.... Thanks Paulette....!

1. I don't have a formal training in arts, but i've discovered my talent in drawing when i was six....

2. I always dream of becoming a wildlife illustrator one day.... Isn't it obvious in my arts that i love drawing animals....? =D

3. I'm not only good in drawing, i'm also a good cook....! I can create a good dish or desserts by heart out of just anything edible that is available in the kitchen in a flash....!

4. The last time i've eaten a solid breakfast was two years ago....! I don't normally eat anything in the morning, except a cup of coffee....

5. I love fishing so much but never really successfully did one since i was twelve..... It always ends up just during the planning process, everytime.... =D

Thanks again to Paulette for this tag....! =D

Wow, Pepe, you amaze me. Your painting talks and walks, in other words it moves. And to top that you have no formal training in arts. Amazing really. You are truly gifted.

You know, cockfighting is also practiced in parts of South America? Each culture has it's "cruel" side, as you said.

Thanks Mari, i think it'all about observations.... The same as learning it from inside a classroom or school.... Though i do not have a teacher to teach me the proper ways, i've realized that still i'm inside a huge classroom, this world around me.... All i really need to do is to observe and pay extra attention to every details and learn.... =D

I am with Mari, great job!
You should be actively looking to be an illustrator. You do amazing work!
If you want you can tag five other artists and give a quick description of their work here, or you can leave it as is.
Gotta like a man who cooks!

Thanks Paulette, i've tried applying as an illustrator twice and even cartoonist in a local news paper here but i was not so lucky.... Anyways, i know that one day i will get the break.... At the moment i'm busy with my job, and at the same time i'm studying how to draw my very own volumes of comic books.... =D

Pepe said...

Thanks Honey.... That's true, wala daw malaking income kung sugarol ang humahawak nito.... Gaano man kaganda ang trabaho mo, presidente ka man ng pilipinas kung sugarol ka ay darating at darating ang araw na gugutumin ang pamilya mo dahil dito.... Just be smart on chosing the man of your life lang ang advice ko.... Ha-ha, parang naging Mr. Kupido tong blog ko a....! =D

Paulette said...

I'm sure your time will come. By the way I love your comics on the other blog! I was showing them to my husband the other day.

Pepe said...

Thanks Paulette, really....?! I haven't updated that page for a long time, but i'm planning to add some short stories with cartoon characters there and some new cartoon characters from my sketch books....! Keep visiting....! =D

Paulette said...

Can't wait to see the new comics!

Pepe said...

I wish i could do that sooner Paulette, i'm still on the process of mixing my blog-life with my hectic schedules at work.... Let's see what i will come up with this weekend....! Have a great week ahead....! =D

hey, lovely art. one of my fave sabong scenes is by ang kiukok. love the action and power the whole canvas evokes. good art man! next time, do you want to join in a blogger's creative swap? but most members are more of crafters than artists...
