More ATOMIK KID

Still looking for a good style for this series. The first one is quite a success. Yet, I hope I can do this kind of style in a constant way. I need more practice. The second was kinda simple and cartoonish, like ala Adventues of Batman.

REPRISE: "Atomik Kid"

These are teasers, sketches, concept art of a komik that I'm planning to do next year, two or so. It's so long coz I hope at that time my drawing skill would probably be improved and better for this kind of komik that I'm planning.

His name or the title of the book is not yet finalized.

A zombie sketch that I did straight to ink during my 10-minute break between classes. I like it. I guess, I need to work more on my hand and arm placements.

All for now.

Cover of Weather-Weather Lang

This is a draft for the cover of my new komik, WEATHER-WEATHER LANG, that will be released this April at Summer Komikon. This is a revised version. I added more story and art like around 20 pages more. The original version was an entry from last year's Jonas Diego's 24-Hour Comic Book Challenge. I was never contented with it. Coz, my art was crap. So, I promised to myself that I will fix it and finish it properly.


About the cover, we're going to add the rain effects later in the computer. There will be a variant cover. The artist for the variant is one of my good friends that I've met here in the Philippines Komiks industry. I'm just happy that he's going doing it. Will reveal his name soon.

We're gonna start working in the computer editing of it this week. Its pretty hectic. Coz its only days away.

Anyway, go out on April 16 to get a copy of Weather-Weather Lang in Summer Komikon at the Bayanihan Center. For the tickets: get them at your nearest Comic Odyssey branch. Call them up - 914-0040.

All for now.

Last page to show from WWL

This is the last page that I'm going to show off from WEATHER-WEATHER LANG until the release of the previews for the Summer Komikon. I'm almost done. I have 3-4 pages to do. And I'm all excited, coz Omeng is gonna edit this thing.

All for now.

Manang Fishball in WWL

Here are 2 panels where you will see Manang Fishball, a character that was first appeared in my other komik, Yo, Bo! Well, she's here in Weather-Weather Lang for a small scene. I'll be using her in my other stories in the future.

I just love drawing her.

Raipo Reviews GUTOM

This morning, I woke up at around 10AM. Checked any updates with my android tab and found a review of my komik, GUTOM, from one of my fellow QBCC members, Raipo Toledo. He made me happy, even I've not the review. But, just taking his time to do so just melted my heart. Thank you for the kind words, man.

Here's a preview:

A "Too" Boring Page

Last night, I also tried to make a draft page. When I compared it with the other pages, it seemed really too slow, too boring and too crappy.

BETTER LATE THAN NEVER: 'Weather-Weather Lang' Review by Komiks KritiKai

Today, I just tripped on an old review of Weather-Weather Lang. This review piece was done during the 24-Hour Comic Challenge, where I turned WWL as an entry. Fortunately, Erika Cruz of Komiks KritiKai was kind enough to write something about my entry. Thank you.

Gambled Panel for WWL - A basketball gym full of stickmen

This is a panel for Weather-Weather Lang. This is, I guess, the most gambled panel for the komik. Why? Just look at it. Hehehehe

Doubtful panel in WWL

Here's a big bottom panel in a page that I'm very doubtful of because, the readers might get a wrong interpretation on based on the top panel of the page. I might scrap it or maybe... not. I dunno. I'm kinda stuck with this.


'GUTOM' Review by Comicspotting


KC Cordero, well-known in the lokal komiks community, reviewed my work, GUTOM.

"Kung likot din lang naman sa mga anggulo ay meron naman si Norby, medyo kailangan pa lang talaga ng praktis sa drawing. Since Tagalog ang medium, maraming mali para sa isang old schooler na gaya ko na sanay sa mga kuwentong Tagalog. Ang sa akin..."
