I have a few copies of Morning Star, so I decided to paint one! I’ve never done something like this before but I’ve always wanted to try it. It was definitely something different for me since I never write in my books or even fold the pages, but I really like how it came out! It’s so sparkly too, the pics don’t do the sparkly-ness justice haha
Yes! I’m now a professional. I’m now a licensed radiologic technologist. 4 yrs, 4 yrs ko tong pinangarap. Nung grumaduate ako ng high school, infotech ang gusto kong kuning course kasi walang board exam. Kaso, ayokong maiba sa dalawa kong ate na parehong grumaduate sa medical field. So I took the entrance exam of SLU, sinulat ko yung BSRT as my course. Back then, ang alam ko lang sa radtech is “xray”, “deadly”, “radiation”, “nakakabaog”, “in demand” and “mahirap na course” pero nung pumasok ako sa first major subject namin, doon ko nalaman at nakita ang malawak na mundo ng radtech. Natutunan kong mahalin ang radtech (kahit puro physics haha), and because of this course, I enjoy myself wearing in white uniform or in scrub suits haha.
And now, I can now call myself as RRT. The 3 letters that tell me: It was all worth it. The frustrations, tears, sleepless nights and heartbreaks I got during this journey were blessings in disguise. Mahirap pero masaya. Mahirap sa una, pero pag malapit ka na sa finish line, hindi mo na mararamdaman yung hirap kasi papalapit ka na. Puro excitement nalang. Success is a matter of choice. And I do made the right choice.
Sa mga nakakabasa neto, continue striving! Matutupad mo din mga pangarap mo. Malapit ka na. Okay lang umiyak, kasama yan sa laban. Okay lang madapa, okay lang masugatan, makakalimutan mo din yung sakit kapag naabot mo na pangarap mo.
I’ve just started this new chapter of my life. More dreams to achieve pa! This is just the first. Fighting!
I wanted to work on character designs, so I used some of the guys from rrt because there’s such a wide variety of characters! There are so many great characters in this series, I had to stop myself from doing more. I still didn’t do everyone I wanted to lol
So, I gave this to Pierce Brown today, an illustration of his gorydamn excellent character Sevro au Barca. If you haven’t read Red Rising yet, you should get upon it. It is outstanding. Expect more illustrations to come :) still grinning like a fool at his excitement when he saw it!! You should have seen his face when he realised I drew the version of Sevro’s Toothpick he recently had forged!
