This is excellent.
I love the composition and its 1890's print-like design.
Like it was drawn in one of those books where the heroine goes to her uncle's vast library because her brother received a devastating bite from an unknown entity to find an answer and this was in that specific page where she finds the truth about the bite. Or something like that.
It's epic.

Ya you should be! It's so original! we Filipinos forget our native culture quite easily as we enjoy foreign and contemporary things - this serves as a reminder of our rich Filipino culture.

Me, too! now lang balik :faint:

Yes i agree with you, suddenly most Filipinos likes american or European but the Japanese-Manga got in craze... they used kawaii, neko, baka etc... ( japan is not heaven :iconargplz: )

sooner gagawa pa ako ng mga native natin na nakalimutan na ng panahon :D

Bwahahaha! True - the Japanese culture sure is fascinating. I personally would like to visit Kyoto in the near future! It's admirable how they preserved all their castles and other historical monuments even after the world war in 1940s. Makes me wish we Filipinos had that kind of respect for our culture, too! Sana na-preserve man lang natin yung mga dwellings of our ancestors before the Spanish occupation.

Me, too! I think I'll give the Tikbalang a try! Let's make this an unofficial movement! :D

Bihira naman kasi ... Mga Hapon ang Sumira ng mga historical buildings natin.. Graaaaahhh!!!
We only preserved ruins here... so sad for Bataan and Open City (manila)

Feel envy that you gonna visit japan soon, upload mo sa DA pictures mo kapag andun ka na :D

Now that you mention it - you have a point! So many conquering parties have come and gone that we hardly have anything to preserve! Hmmm... onga pala noh!

Matagal pa yang plan na yan! Of course, post ko sya when I'm there already! :D

San ba exactly yung workshop mo in Pampanga?! I want to drop by when I go there! Would you believe, never pa ako nag-tour jan?!

i dislike how you have defined each creature like they're just similar to western mythological ones, but then again, I can't think of other ways to describe them in english..teehee! Otherwise, the artwork is phenomenal!!! Have it in my faves!
