Make this blog like an actual blog

November 5, 2016

Hello,

Happy Holidays to everyone out there! From now on, I am going to try to make this wordpress site like an actual blog. When I’m not posting my own webcomics, sometimes I’ll post actual blog entries and of course I’m going to talk about comics, most specially the local comics industry here in Manila.

I’ve also created a YouTube account so I can post videos as well. But most of the time, I’m going to post videos of myself playing musical instruments, events that happen to me and probably some time lapse of myself illustrating something. I’ll try that one of these days. You can see the link at the bottom left side of this blog. Just scroll down and you’ll see the links together with my online portfolio. So if any of you guys would want me to draw/create graphics and whatnot for you, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I still need a job. 😀

The image you can see above is an original comic art given to me by one of my friends at Chain Mason, David Sysing @davidsafonik at instagram. Looks really great. C.B. Cebulski (He is a talent scout from Marvel comics) went on one of the comic events here in Manila a few months ago and searched for new artists that could possibly work for Marvel comics. If you don’t know any Filipino comic artist who works for major publishers of comics like Marvel, Whilce Portacio, Gerry Alanguilan, Leinil Yu and Edgar Tadeo, are just to name a few.

If I’m not mistaken, David gave C.B. his portfolio and I really hope that he breaks into mainstream comics industry like Marvel comics. Not only him though but to all my fellow comic artists that gave Sir C.B. Cebulski their portfolio for him to review. I wish them all the best. As for me I think I am really not for mainstream comics because I work better alone, as an artist and as a writer (I like to write my own stories) and my default drawing style is also really not for mainstream comics because I suck at drawing comics the mainstream way. I need to study human anatomy figure more so I can draw better, not unless if I use photo references for my illustrations; then perhaps I can somehow possibly manage to draw like the pro’s. Maybe I can try and pitch the comics that I’ve made in the past and the comics that I’ll make in the future to indie or other comic publishers out there. If you guys are wondering when will I be making comics again, I’m going to continue making webcomics again next year, 2017. 😀

That’s it for now.

Cheers,
Vin

Happy Holidays 2016

Hello there,

Just a quick drawing for today on my journal sketchbook just like on my previous post a couple of months ago:

I adjusted the curves and the contrast on Photoshop though because it’s a bit blurry.

Happy Holidays to everyone! 😀

[ISSUE # 15] Bad Hair Day (October 2016)

Hello people,

I’m finally done with another comic. Well, sort of because this time it’s a bit like a story book. If you have spare time, you can read it below or download the PDF format. You can locate the download link below. Everything I need to say about my latest work is already been written so you can just read it. 🙂

Thank you for your time.

Cheers,
Vin

[ISSUE # 14] Extraterrestrial Chapter 1 (September 2016)

Ahoy there,

I just finished making my latest comics, Extraterrestrial Chapter 1. You can now read it in PDF or in Jpeg format. I hope you guys like this one. It’s the start of the “Ber” months and the holidays are coming. I might take a break again making comics but hopefully I’ll be able to make another issue before this year ends and that’d be the second chapter of Extraterrestrial or another entirely new comics. I’m thinking though of making a few issues more of this current comics that I made just like the After School series that I’ve made early this year, 2016.

Thanks for your time! 🙂

Cheers,
Vin

Mr. Right (Illustration)

August 16, 2016. My illustration for today. Some good friends of mine (Carlo, Luis and Mike) asked me to do this. It’s a bit funny if you’d think about it. This guy is supposed to be some kind of a big muscular guy singing this super cheesy song. 😀

Fan art that I made (Illustrations of Clarence and We Bare Bears)

August 13, 2016
Hello,

I Spent today’s rainy afternoon drawing some fan art of Cartoon Network’s, “Clarence”. I’m a big fan of cartoons like Clarence, We Bare Bears and a lot more. 🙂

The illustration below is also a fan art that I made before, We Bare Bears. Albeit, this one needs a lot more polishing because this is just a quick and a rough illustration that I still need to spend a lot more time. 🙂

[ISSUE # 13] The Spirit of a Soda (Aug 2016)

Hey there,

If you have some free time, you can now read my latest comics. I was planning to color this latest comics of mine but I decided to just post this now without any colors. I cannot be bothered by this anymore. I’ll just add colors to the comics that I’ll make in the future. Anyway, here it is: The Spirit of a Soda. 😀

Cheers,
Vin

NOTE (a few hours after I posted this comics): Someone pointed out why is there a bottle of dishwashing liquid on a fridge. That’s a mistake I didn’t thought while I was still writing the script for this comics and I didn’t notice it either. But anyway, I can’t do anything about this now. If I’ll try to fix it, I’ll have to draw pages again so please just don’t mind that thing anymore. 🙂
