Sa Mundo ng Balete by blue-fusion Sa Mundo ng Balete by blue-fusion
Old drawing. I actually have no idea what i was thinking when i drew this. So i just gave it a new theme, a take Philippine mythology (again). The frontmost is a baylan (shaman). Yes, the chest area is rather cubist. hahaha The middle one's a diwata (elf? fey? sprite?) and the one on the back's a weird, befeathered tikbalang (horse-man).

it's been a while since i did something in corel, so i tried colouring the drawing using it. AND well, it seemed i've forgotten most of the little that i know in working with it. nonetheless, i managed to add some colour and textures via corel (notice the costume of the one in the middle, and the background), and just shifted to PS for the rest.

another version, with a different - dare i say - narnia-inspired colour scheme can be found here: [link] i just posted it in the scraps, since i still kinda liked it, but found this darker look more appealing.

nice... corel, huh? nice effect... could have fooled me that this is real water color

I never tried corel. just once, way way back when I'm still playing with PS4.

yeah, i started out wif corel and became a sellout when i went with the flow and used photoshop instead. though for me, corel has a more magical effect. lol

I didn't like corel since the buttons and arrangement of the commands were weird and hard to remember. That was before... I don't know what corel looks like now. haha

salamat. ako din mahilig sa mythology, lalo na sa pinoy mythology. nanghihinayang kasi ako dahil rich naman mythology natin, hindi naeexpose mga tao ngayon tungkol dun... :(

mahirap naman kasi makahanap ng source ng pinoy myths, kahit sa net. atsaka yung ibang myths natin, may halo ng spanish at iba pang influences, e.g., bernardo carpio, etc... yung purong pinoy talaga, kaunti lang.

totoo yan. at lalo mahirap maghanap ng books on the subject which have a very "visual" approach to them. i've encountered a couple of books, pero for something that talks about a topic as imaginative as myths puro text lang sya. ako naman, ayos sakin kahit hindi sobra authentic to the last detail pagkaka depict visually. yun naman sa spanish influence, nakakafascinate din naman how aspects of folk christianity have assumed a "mythical" character. yun mga albularyo na meron anting anting na me nakasulat na pig latin, etc.

oo nakakatuwa yung pig latin nayan. at tama ka mahirap hanapin yung may visuals. mostly na nakikita ko sa net e mga conceptualization na ng mga local artists... at yung iba pa comic-book yung approach. well, not to say na di ko gusto dahil yun din naman ang gagawin ko to some extent, pero i'd have loved to see a more 'traditional' representation para may basis naman ako sa drawings ko.
