lethalverses and a spider

It's been a year since my last attempt at charcoal drawing (mind my choice of not using "painting" because they definitely won't qualify as such) - except for some sporadic moments when I'll just scribble and sketch, most often with a ballpoint pen to kill boredom away.

And I never thought I'll be inspired to draw again, until early last night when Hanae Bagabaldo, one of my prettier officemates, brought her artist's book containing clippings of her drawings.

I swear to all pitumputpitongputingtupa - I haven't met a woman who draws like her. Patience evidently characterizes her works: mundane details are present, and need I mention that she creates backdrops with stunning effects?

To cut the story short, I was inspired to draw again. And this time, I am commissioned to do a spidey - not the eight-legged insect I dreaded but that "parker boy".

AFTER:



okay, maghuhugas muna ako ng kamay. Sana lang matanggal ang mga lead na sumingit sa kuko ko hehehe...


...thanks to Michael Turner of Marvel Comics for his Wizard #179 cover art (opo, ginaya ko lang ito dun)
