Lessons learned from Painting Spiderman

A successful Spidey!

I finally finished this guy successfully. Painting Tom Holland was something I didn ‘t think would be too hard. I mean, he’s caucasian and I have done that before. Plus his face seemed to be easy enough. So I had set up myself for an “easy Sunday painting afternoon.” WRONG.

I had a really hard time with my first attempt. I did it in Khadi Handmade paper, which I really don’t get along with. That was my first mistake. I thought that since I had some, I should use it. But I had a hard time getting all my tones together and I also had some sizing issues with that paper. So It was not a pleasant painting experience at all. I learned to choose my materials wisely. I have to be aware and test first before jumping with both feet in and painting away, to avoid frustrations and heartaches in the future.

Second mistake, I chose a difficult reference. I chose a picture of Tom Holland with different lighting. and I thought I could recreate it. But it was a total nightmare. I couldn’t get him to look right. I was confused by a lot of the elements in my reference and I didn’t know how to fix them. I learned that I really need to be careful in choosing my reference pictures and not choose them just because they look cool. I need to see if they are good references for me. I am still learning.

BLOOP! THIS ISNT A GOOD ATTEMPT

Finally, I learned to start over and do it again. I learned not to give up and persevere. This time I chose Bockingford Hot Press and I slowed down my process. I also chose an easier reference and this time, i thought about it more. I kind of succeeded, right? I was really happy with this one and I reallly like how it turned out that I released the timelapse video. Check it out below.

I was Featured?! and What I have been up to.

Yup. Lost. I was lost for more than a year. That is all I can say about my whirlwind 2019. There has been a lot going on in 2019 that I neglected this blog completely. But you know what they say, 3rd time’s a charm?

So here I am again, trying to make this work.

THINGS THAT HAPPENED TO ME IN 2018-2019

  1. I moved back home to the Philippines
  2. I started playing with Gouache ( I finished GOUACHETOBER!)
  3. I paint Landscapes
  1. I finished 2 Sketchbooks

4. I got featured at Kickinthecreatives.com YOUTUBE!

5. I started a Youtube Channel.

So there are the 5 things that I have been up to and so now on to the new stuff! Thanks for bearing with my long absence! I will definitely update this page from now on

The Man of Steel

41680124_2008865129165082_5723692294477971456_nIt’s a Bird! It’s a plane. OMG Marikit is drawing a DC Character other than Flash and WONDERWOMAN! It’s SUPERMAN!

The Sketchtember theme today was COMIC BOOK HERO so who is the quintessential hero? SUPERMAN. I decided it because I just want to draw some classic superhero and really concentrate on how I can render it.  And Lo and behold, I could actually draw the classic Reeves Superman!

You can see the speedpaint process below to see how I drew this classic Man of Steel! I used the bargue process of using general huge shapes first and filling it in, its been working pretty well for me, but I guess– MORE HOURS and More Practice. PLUS, I  do think that I need to start rendering out bigger and completed works than sketches.  So Up , up and AWAY!!

inktober day 7 : Lost 

​​I did a speedpaint for Day 7: Lost and it is of Nico di Angelo from Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan.Check it out below!

Nico is a lost child  and he spent a lot of time being searched for by people. So I thought he would be a good subject… Plus i got a request. Hit 2 birds with one stone right? so here


that is the final picture and here is how i did it


there will be some new stuff coming on the blog! 🙂 watch out for it soon!

Restart, Refresh, Rewind

Hey you guys! I know I have been absent for a while now and yep, I have been kidnapped by work and I have been in and out of the hospital a while now. Anyway, I am back and hopefully for good this time.

In my absence I never forgot art, so as a reparation gift and to make up for the absence, I am presenting the following video.

I will be restarting my VLOG and youtube channel as well as this blog and update my art here more. I do hope that you can support me once again.

The video below is my painting of Jiroutachi of Touken Ranbu. Love the character style and yes, he’s a guy. But he’s just so pretty! Hope you enjoy
