Mike Amante, an artist from the Philippines. I aspire to be an illustrator or a visual development artist someday... Thanks for dropping by and hope you like what you see here.

I did a 5 sec. 3D animation as a final project for a short introductory course on Maya. I went simple for this one though because we only had one session to work on it. It’s ok for me but I could’ve done better.  

Animating this made me appreciate even more the work put into 3D animation movies or movies with animations in it. It takes a lot of creative effort into it but the results are amazing. I originally like hand drawn animations but doing this really changed my perspective on 3D animation. I’m glad I took that short course :)

chandrahabein asked: Because reasons, when you get this, post 5 random facts about yourself and then send this to 10 of your favorite followers. c: <3


Answer:

1. I’m a Catholic in-training and happy to be one :) I owe this talent of drawing to God. I haven’t drawn any religious related stuff lately but I’m adding this to my list of arts to do

2. I’m a BS Biology, Major in Zoology graduate from the University of the Philippines. Right now, I took on a diff path and started to pursue art-related stuff (like short courses and freelance jobs)

3. I belong to a family of 8 (including parents).

4. The clothes I often wear range from green, black, blue, dark blue, gray and white.

5. I’m fond of birds especially any Kingfisher species. 

Actually I don’t have any favorites but I’ll be tagging those who like/reply to my posts often (in no particular order): chandrahabein, tristanbrard, phons0bageldenizentospookkytookillbananacasts

    These are the low-res versions of some of the illustrations I did for a Danish children’s website: Klogleg.dk (which is currently in the works). I’ll do another post about this when the website is done and all of the illustrations are posted.

      I really had a lot of fun doing this. This project also helped me practice my color, anatomy and perspective skills.

Hope you guys like it too as much as I do.

Did a little gouache study based on MASHA&#8217;s illustration in the Three Little Kittens Little Golden Book. Used kyletwebster's Gouache brushes for this one.

Sketches of potential characters for my webcomic, temporarily entitled “The Mystical Forests of Kor (which is most likely “heart” in Latin)”. 

 It will be mostly be environmental-related. I’ll be basing this on my camping experiences, stuff I learned from zoology, the legend of Maria Makiling, and Mount Makiling (which is an hour away from our house).

Regarding the plot, I’m already 5 chapters in but the script hasn’t been done yet.

I’ll continue to update you whenever I make progress regarding this project. I’m posting it here to so that I’ll definitely stick on finishing this.

A hardcore librarian for sasha-art ‘s Bad Bitches Zine. I really liked creating this piece.

For me so far, I haven’t encountered any adventure seeking female librarian so I decided to do it. I also added some library-related details like the grandfather clock, shelves and the library card in her pocket. To add to that, I aimed to make it look like a cover of a book :)

Here’s my process:

First- did some thumbnails to fix composition and the character’s pose

Second- After approving a final thumbnail, I did small color tests. Since the theme was “Bad Bitches”, I went for the one with cooler colors (the bottom picture on the left).

Third- I just simply copied the colors in the previous color test. Added some details and made her more badass (compared to the initial sketch).
