Hello!! Meron po ba kayong mabibigay na tips sa pagdesign ng maximum 4 color na tshirt? Sana mabasa niyo agad. Mejo nahihirapan po kasi ako at malapit na ang due :<
Hello! I think 4 colors is already a lot to work with! :) Actually, 2 would be the best setup. Hmm, maybe make your design minimalist na lang. Executional suggestion would be line art tapos may accent color. Here are some examples: http://www.claremallison.com/filter/drawings/drawings-3
But always remember that as a designer, try not to see “limitations” as, err, limitations. But more like the materials you could work with. :) Gets ba? Basta hindi sila limitations, sila ay creativity enhancers.
In HK, is it okay to bring DSLR at concerts?
Hi! Well, I don’t know if there’s a standard rule but when we watched Blur, the concert organizers provided some do’s and don’ts. And in our case, dSLRs were not allowed. :)
So what hair products do you use to prevent your hair from being "buhaghag" since it's wavy and straight? ;)
I just use Dove Intense Repair Shampoo (the blue one) and the new Dove Anti-Hair-fall (green) conditioner. :D
P.S. I’m not plugging Dove or anything, I just really use it. Haha.
omg! Kayo po pala ang mind behind Blitz and Lily? Love it!
Thanks! But I’m just part of the TEAM who made it.
Hi! I am just wondering where did you get the pretty floral wallpaper for the background of "the queen bee" painting? Thank you so much! Ps: you are my favorite art director forever ☺☺
Hi! This will be a bit embarrassing but I just Googled romantic floral wallpaper. And I overlapped two of them, adjusted the colours a bit. ;-)
Please note that what I just did shouldn’t be done when the artwork you’re making is intended to be sold. I just used the images (found online) conveniently because the artwork was for my blog and I don’t intend to sell it. But if ever someone’s interested for a print of the “queen bee” artwork, most likely, I’ll paint a version of the wallpaper. :)
Thank you! Hope you left your name!
Hello ate Cj! Tanong ko lang. Lately po kasi may mga commisions ako. Yung isa doon, tinatanong ako magkano daw. Simple watercolor tiger painting. Since first time ko to. Diko po alam pano magcharge? Taga ibang bansa po so may shipping churva ek ek pa na magaganap. haha. and Student palang po ako. Any tips? Yun lang Thank you!
Hi! First of all, congratulations! Napakaswerte mo’t may raket ka! ;-)
Pero tricky nga ang pagprepresyo. Marami kasing factors yan:
- Size of artwork
- How long will it take you to finish it?
- How long have you been painting?
- How many clients have you painted for?
- And lastly and most important of all, what is your client’s budget?
I usually price my works P 100 to P300/square inch. Ibig sabihin (price) x (width) x (height) = final price. But of course, iisipin mo rin if sobra or sapat ba yung result ng math based on the other factors. Pero if you really don’t have an idea where to start, I think it’s okay to ask your clients budget and tell him/her you can work out something based on that. Pag nagbigay naman ng presyo ang client, mafi-feel mo kung swak or binabarat ka nya.
Here’s a link I’ve always gone back to when I feel puzzled about pricing: Jessica Hische on About Pricing. Very helpful, especially kapag illustration raket. :)
Hope I helped! And good luck!
P.S. Student or not a student, doesn’t matter. It’s the quality of work. :)
What hair products do you use to keep your curls and prevent your hair from being wavy since it's curly? Thanks ;)
Ola! Actually, right now, my hair is straight already because my hair grew longer and I had to cut the damaged ends. 1 inch na lang yata yung wavy! And another thing, my hair wasn’t that curly talaga. It was more of wavy. :) One officemate told me before na I should comb it when it’s wet so haha, for two years, I rarely combed my hair! :D And regular shampoo and conditioner lang. :) Sometimes, I skip the conditioner even.
Hello po! Salamat po sa pag-answer ng unang questions ko po! SUPER APPRECIATED PO. :""""> Magtatanong po sana uli ako kung okay lang? :> Meron po ba kayong mga tutorials on paintings and digital arts? San din po kayo kumukuha ng mga inspirations?
Hi! Ako, if may tutorials? Naku, wala. Actually, hirap akong magturo, which I have to improve on! ;-) But my dad teaches painting. :) Digital art naman - if you notice, i’m not into digital painting or anything, mas typography lang at layout digitally. :)
Saan ako kumukuha ng inspirations:
- Normal Rockwell
- 50s illustration
- Retro comics
- Retro movie posters
- Jessica Hische
- Alfred Hitchcock movies
- Wes Anderson movies
Hello. Meron ka bang pinagkokopyahan like photos pag gumagawa ka ng sketch ng tao? Like Saab's portrait? Or you draw them from memory? Kasi I do sketches pero hirap ako tandaan ang details ng mukha ng tao so I resort to a photo's details. :(
Sometimes I have references, sometimes I don’t. But most of the time, I use different reference photos for one artwork. But with Saab’s portrait’s case, she gave me a preferred photo reference and I just tweaked it. When I sketch people’s portraits, I try not to just “copy” their faces, but at least replicate their energy or their aura, or at least show how I know them. :)
And hey, art is not just about skills, nor is it about memorizing details! Even James Jean or Audrey Kawasaki would have references, maybe from photos or quick sketches.
Have you heard about Alex Ross or Norman Rockwell? Both are great great great artists and they’re both known for always using photographic references. But that doesn’t make them less creative!
