Early Days of Graphics Designing

My love for digital art started from a simple photo manipulation. I was 17. All I did was edit a photo by adding fancy texts, splatter some brushes here, add some glitters there, added fancy filters and voila! I called it art. And I was so proud of it.

Then one photo after another, I started to improve. I explored almost stueverything that has something to do with pixels. From photo manipulation to vector to vexel to digital paint. It became more than a hobby... it became my passion.

Today, I'd like to share with you my firsts on every type of project I made. These are just a few of a hundreds of my projects during the early days of  still learning how to unleash creativity using the digital technology.


My first FanArt:
Chris Carabba of Dashboard Confessionals

My first Photo Manipulation:
My first Digital Collage:
The Beatles!
My first PopArt:
My portrait
Paul McCartney
My first LineArt:

My first (and last) Andy Warhol inspired portrait:

My first Sketch-to-Photoshop project:

My first Digital Paint: 
step by step
Finished product
My first Digital Paint (portrait):

My first Digital Drawing: 
But I never got to finish this.


My first 3D attempt using Photoshop:

My first paid Logo Design: (whooping $150!):

My first paid Web Design ($300):

My first Logo Design that was used for a product: 
Who wouldn't be so proud?

This is not my first, but definitely my favorite Vector Art:
Ian Somerholder. Gawd, you are too hawt not to be included here. :D

Tools/Softwares I used: Adobe Photoshop 7/Adobe Photoshop CS2, CS3, CS4, CS5/Adobe Illustrator CS4, CS5/Paper, pencil, graphics pen and tablet)

These can also be found in hi-resolution images at choiax7.deviantart.com and sjandres.com

I wish I still have the luxury of time to do stuff like these. I really really love it and I miss doing this. :)
