Doodle 032-037

Doodle 037: Dead iPhone
What the hell?! My phone just died on me today!! It wouldn't turn on even after I charged it. Gotta take it to the Apple store tomorrow. :(

Doodle 036: Andrew
I wanted to do another caricature, but I wanted to do someone who is close to me, so I did my godson, Andrew. It's still work in progress. Next will be his little brother.

Doodle 035: Angry Birds
Don't fight it, you know you're obsessed! It seems that this is the new obsession of everyone, young and old. Everyone seems to be going coocoo over Angry Birds, so I thought I'd do a tribute to these guys. You know you just heard the birds screaming in your head!

Doodle 034: Sun Please!
Man, I miss wearing just my flip flops, shorts, a t-shirt, and my hat. Holidays are fun, but I can't wait for spring!

Doodle 033: Merry Christmas!
Every year, The Bautistas get together for Christmas and this is seriously what it's like the moment you walk in the door. Man, that's the best part of being a kid during Christmas time. Merry Christmas folks!!

Doodle 032: Seriously?!
It's not even Christmas yet and I've already gain a couple of pounds! I guess that's what Filipino food will do to ya.

After seeing the sketch I did of his older brother, my nephew Andrin wanted me to draw him too, with a sword. When I asked him if he wanted me to draw him as a jedi, he got more excited and even posed for me. Thanks little guy!

Doodle 020

Doodle 020: Bad Memory
For the longest time, people believed that a goldfish's memory only lasts for 3 seconds, but that's just a myth. After many experiments and studies, researchers discover that goldfish can actually retain information and remember things. So, to my friend who compares her memory to a goldfish's, you're good!

Bird pooping on rhino, why not! I just thought it would be funny. This was done using color pencil and marker.

This is a project I'm working on at the moment for my portfolio. Just wanted to post what I doodled today. I plan to paint the main cast members from the tv show "LOST." I'll post the final painting of this once I finish.

"Just Doing My Job"

I did a sketch of Manny for my doodle a day thing and I decided to paint it in Photoshop for my portfolio. I'm pretty happy with the outcome. I'm still planning to do little tweaks on it.

Doodle 012: Tejava

Doodle a Day: 010, 011

Doodle 011: WTF!?
I was online the other night looking for images of dinosaurs and I came across an article on cbsnews.com that kinda made me sad. Paleontologists claim that triceratops may have not existed after all. It was my favorite dinosaur growing up, and still is!

"Paleontologists at the Montana State University argue that the Triceratops and his kissing cousin, the Torosaurus, were actually the same dinosaur at different stages of growth." -cbsnews.com-

I thought It would be funny to put him in Marty Mcfly's(Back To The Future) shoes when he realized what would happen if never existed.

Doodle 010: Zebra
For doodle 009 I did a rhino, so I figure I'd doodle another animal.

Doodle a Day

So two weeks ago, my friends and I attended the 2010 Creative Talent Network (CTN) Expo. It was definitely an awesome experience, meeting some of the artists in the industry like John Nevarez, David Colman, and Chris Ayers, just to name a few, sitting in panels, interviews, buying books and just meeting other talented people.

My friends and I were really inspired that we challenged ourselves to do what artist, Chris Ayers did, a doodle a day, 365 drawings in one year. Check out his story and his work at: www.chrisayersdesign.com

So, here's what I have so far. I'll try to post my doodle everyday. Enjoy!!

Doodle 001: Pakie
Since it was my good friend's, Pakie Seung, birthday, my first doodle is of her. Happy birthday, Pak!

Doodle 002: Audrepunzel
I just got "The Art of Tangled" book, so I was inspired to draw my goddaughter as Rapunzel, since she's got that looong hair just like Rapunzel...not that long of course, but long enough! Good book, by the way.

Doodle 003: Drin
I was playing with my nephew today and just watching his face as he talks to me, so I said why not? I was trying to play with different shapes and ways to make his face a bit more cartoony.

Doodle 004: Thanksgiving with this Guy!
I went home to the Bay Area for Thanksgiving. After eating and eating so much, I just sat on the couch and watched as much Food Network as I can, since I don't have cable at my place. I've always liked watching triple D's (Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives) with host Guy Fieri. He was doing a triple D special on Thanksgiving. So I decided...Guy it is!

Doodle 005: Playing with my Girl
After having another delicious dinner with my girlfriend, we just sat down on her couch one night and chillaxed! I grabbed my drawing pad and started doodling her. Here I was playing with shapes and trying to push certain features and exaggerating them.

Doodle 006: Edu
I was having dinner with my girlfriend's family for her mom's birthday, and her uncle turns to me and says "Aries, draw me. Lemme pose por you!" I borrowed her pen and drew him on the paper place mat. Sorry for the bad quality, I took it with a camera phone.

Doodle 007: Baby Girl
I went to a coffee shop one cold night and decided to draw my goddaughter. I exaggerated the eyes and made it even bigger. She's a silly one!

Doodle 008: Pac-Man
Need I say more? Gotta represent my pinoy brother!

Doodle 009: Rhino
I was going through my Zoonooz magazine and I figured okay why not do an animal this time. My friends say if I was an animal I'd be a rhino, so here's me!

Material & Lighting Final

This was my Material and Lighting Final project. The room was provided and I found most of the furniture online. I just added the textures and the lighting. I'm really happy how the final turned out.

Material & Lighting Midterm

This was my midterm project from Material & Lighting class, from last quarter. Whe had to light a room, day scene and night scene. I really enjoy lighting.
