This was my last editorial illustration for Total Girl Philippines for the year 2012!
We’ll be celebrating Earth hour once again on March 31st. Don’t forget to turn off your lights from 8pm-9pm on that day!
I really enjoyed illustrating this month’s Total Girl article about Earth hour and how you can have fun with that 1 hour of no lights. For this illustration, I even had to try doing the shadows myself just so I could illustrate it well. It was great being able to play with color values to really showcase the darkness of the night and the light of the candle illuminating the room and the characters.
And of course, here’s my monthly illustration for TG to the Rescue.
Since it’s the spooky month of October, let’s keep the terror coming! It’s all about “Spooky” things in this week’s Illustration Friday.
The mythical creature in this illustration is called an Aswang. Aswang is a generic term used in Philippine mythology for supernatural beings like manananggals (half-body of a human, with bat-like wings), witches, shapeshifters, and lycanthropes. These creatures are described as having an ordinary human body by day, then transforming into a monstrous creature (usually animals) at night.
