I am Cj de Silva. Some might recognize me as the Promil Kid. I love to paint and illustrate. Advertising is not just a day job for me. Film, moving pictures and music are my escapes.

BLOGGED: Dear Youthful Arrogance,

When the world was young, it thought the sun revolved around it. Everything revolved around it. But as the world grew older, it discovered that it was the other way around. The world realized that it was just a tiny speck in the middle of the vast universe.”

LEGS!
My second attempt at learning Bruce Timm’s technique. I wish to show everything but I kinda want to make a series out of this!
By the way, it took me 3 studies/sketches to get the confidence of actually trying it in colour. 
STEP 1: Pencil sketch.
STEP 2: Watercolour underpainting
STEP 3: Values using coloured pencil (not watercolour pencils because they’re real soft)

Girl 2 of 8. Series. Initial Sketch.
Been quite obsessed with Bruce Timm’s style for quite some time now.It’s been almost a decade since I tried a new drawing style. (yabang leche) Testing feels challenging. Can’t quite immitate his technique perfectly yet but I think it’s a bit close! But I think I kinda like how I was able to merge his style with my own? (Ugh Cj, excuses.) BUT I THINK THE BALLPOINT CROSS HATCH LOOKS NICE. Hahaha. 
I sound like I’m talking to myself, forgive me.

I always said "Its the Indian, not the pana.” (For my friends across the globe, here’s a translation: "Its the Indian (archer), not the bow.”
Early in life, I developed the aversion to fancy tools – from that pencil case with eject hidden sharpeners, to the watercolor brush shampoos. The reason is very simple: we cannot afford it. So ever since, I’ve comforted my angsty juvenile (pa-art) self that I should just focus on my techniques, given a very limited range of art tools.
But with more time and experience, I learned that even a very skilled artist (or technician), if given faulty tools, the process of creation won’t be as inspired. Worse, the work won’t be as efficient. Now, I recognize the importance of having the best tools that you can have. (Pag-ipunan na lang. Investment rin ‘yan.)
My iPad has been a very helpful tool for my art (and rakets). I use it for viewing of reference photos when I’m painting or sketching. But the Paper App and the Jot Pro stylus helped me maximize my iPad more. Now I can literally write down and doodle my ideas on the iPad. And just when I thought my Jot Pro stylus is the best, I get introduced to the Jot Pro Touch.

Check out my new artwork using the Paper app and the Jot Pro Touch!
