I thought of that initially. Although, I do feel my design wasn’t particularly creative enough. But it was just a doodle.
Also I was like:
Me: “Hello, Germany?”
Me: “Yes, guten tag! I was wondering, you guys wear lederhosen all the time, right? Like it’s currently everyday, casual wear, right?”
Me: “Oh. Ok. Auf wiedersehen.”

Well at least that was the intention. But the more I look at it, he kinda looks more like a fat Dennis the Menace. Mehh…

Quick Beetlejuice sketch for @Sketch_Dailies.
Love this movie. Didn’t want to do the original design tho.
Thought I’d try and experiment with Kyle Webster’s watercolor brushes. I’m still getting used to it but the results are interesting. Of course, there’s no substitute for the real thing, but the brushes are pretty neat.

My birthstone is Turquoise. I know because I looked it up. Also, I’ve been really into Steven Universe lately. So this is a guy inspired by an excellent series. I usually go for the mage class when I play MMO’s. So I made Turquoise, a staff guy. Magic!
Anyway, ya’ll should watch Steven Universe.
I do not. And probably will never make one.
Coincidentally, my work has been spotted in DevArt, but I didn’t put it there. It’s a bit of a bummer.

: How long does it usually take to Burtonise a pokemon? Is it getting easier?
About an hour, I think? The most challenging and time-consuming bit is studying Tim Burton’s work so I can better speak his visual vocabulary. But the rendering happens really quickly.
It does get a bit easier the more I get familiar with the “style.”
: Hello! Just wanted to say that I loved your Philippine goddess illustrations. I'm an American married to a Filipina (actually, staying in the Philippines until June). I've learned a little about Filipino mythological creatures, like Aswang, Duwende, Manananggal, but I hadn't heard about Tala, Haliya, Magwayen. Have you done any other Philippine mythological creature illustrations?
Hello! I hope it hasn’t been too hot for you here. Haha! Anyway, I have done quite a bit of Philippine mythology inspired art before, but I’ve never really fully explored it.
Most of the pantheon of Philippine gods and goddesses are from ancient religions and aren’t as widely spread as the stuff about the Aswang and whatnot. It’s kind of odd that when we talk about Philippines folklore, we tend to focus on the beasties and less about the deities. The focus is on mostly the scary bits and less about the epics.
Although, there are quite a bit of books about Philippine mythology, but they’re usually quite difficult to find. I had to dig deep within the bowels of my college library just to find dusty copies about old Philippine religions and usually the books are inadequate especially in terms of descriptive content about deities. Which is probably another reason why it’s not spreading, because of the lack of imagery available.
To my knowledge, there are no detailed descriptions written down, or passed down in any other way, about the deities. Yet we do have surviving venerations, but it’s tough to say if they were depicting deities. I need to read more about this actually.
