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!!

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
