There really should be a "mixed media" option in DA's main art category.

Sketched on my way to/from work, inside a bus/jeepney/tricycle, which also explains the roughness of my pencil strokes.
Carelessly rendered in Photoshop cs2, using a mouse, a brush tool, and a semi-transparent layer.

It was totally a different experience taking out my sketchpad and mechanical pen inside a public transportation. I got to meet an old man who used to have a passion in drawing but ended up pursuing a different career, had a little kid stare at me for a loooong time, was greeted by a really cheerful family, made an office lady smile, and made a couple of strangers wonder about what the heck I was trying to do.

That was refreshing, indeed. :D

Looking at your pieces since this one, I would say it sent you in a wholly new direction with a high degree of originality/personal vision. Nice, nice stuff.

I am continuously fascinated by the way drawing in a public space influences one's atmosphere. You very rarely can't not get an immediate reaction from people, and it's almost always positive.

I agree! :)

Haha, you did a hell of a job drawing this while travelling with public transportation. Especially in a Jeepney and in a tricycle!
Those things are so bumpy :)

Good work! Love the colors and the steampunk thingeys :D
I also made some steampunk related work lately,
but i cannot post it on DA yet before it is published.

Wow, have you been to Manila/Philippines? It was really bumpy and too crowded I hardly found a space to draw! LOL It was more like an adventure rather than just an experience. :D

Thanks! I've been a fan of steampunk as you can see. And your works are going to be published somewhere? That's cool!!
Jullian1990 Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2011  Student General Artist
Yeah i have! I'm half Filipino :D Have been there 10 times already!
Really love the Philippines, and i really miss it right now :(

Haha, The adventures of Yantotzkie in the Jeepney! xD

No problem!
Yes, but it is no biggie ;) It's for the Onn-Off magazine, for students who study Industrial Design at my University. But it's a first for me to have something published, so i'm really excited :D

I see, so you are based in Netherlands, and a half-filipino. No wonder why you knew about jeepneys! haha! Van Gogh and Rembrant were dutch, right? There must be a museum that displays their works somewhere near you. I can only see their works through the internet and art books.. you're quite lucky!

Anyway, to be published on that magazine is still a good opportunity to showcase your talent! I never had anything like that. Goodluck! :D
Jullian1990 Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2011  Student General Artist
Yup, I am. That's why! Haha
Yes, they are dutch. Holland is pretty small, so their museums are always nearby ;)

Thank you! But hey... you live in the Philippines, where you have yummiest food, tropical weather, awesome nature, tall mountains and the most gorgeous scuba places, very kind people, a lot of different languages, and a thousand islands to explore. And Manilla is a beautifull city, where there is always something going on. I love the chaos, the traffic, the people... everything. I think you are the lucky one :D

Guess every country has its own good points. I have to agree except for the heavy traffic part. There's really nothing nice about it if you're forced to deal with it everyday. I'm always late for work because of that. Good thing we're already used to it. :D Well that happens on other countries too, I guess.

But yes, the mountains here are nice. I've been saving some money to have a vacation somewhere North next year. Seems like you've been to a lot more places around this country than me. To think I've been living here for 2 decades already... :lol:

Haha xD That's cool, you should totally do that :) there is a lot to explore!
