We’ve got: a grumpy market vendor, a jejemon girl, halo-halo girl, sampaguita girl, a Magical Girl-if fied version of iconic superheroine Darna, a flower festival girl, a vinta girl, a transgendered girl, a traditional-style girl, and the ubiquitous Filipino singing child star girl.
And now we have a title for Tin’s ongoing 4-koma! As you may have inferred, “Filjoshi” is a hybrid of “Filipino” and “Fujoshi”, the latter referring to, according to the Urban Dictionary: “Ironical self-description by readers of Yaoi Doujinshi. The female counterpart to the male Otaku.”
Well, it was either that or: “Do We Really Need a Title Dammit?”
Don’t forget that #salimbalsketches is ongoing this week, with the theme of Philippine-themed Magical Girls — and non Salimbal members are welcome to submit! Here are submissions from Bernardo Gatus (Darna) and Abigail Dela Cruz (Sampaguitas+Pearls) #PinoyMagicalGirls
We’ve extended the “Philippine-themed magical girl” #SalimbalSketches event until this Thursday. If you’d like an idea of what we mean by that theme — Behold! aNj3l 6u@Rd1aN j3j36iRL! (Blame Elbert Or for this one!)
Hey guys! Courtney here! Okay, if you’re like me at all, then foreshortening is something you absolutely hate to even THINK about attempting. I have asked for advice everywhere, and each person I’ve asked has given me a different technique that really confused me. I was browsing youtube and found this method (also there is a bonus tip showing how to draw arms and legs!). It’s so much easier than just eyeballing it (which I have tried [and failed at] doing).
The links below show other methods of how to use forshortening to create the effects that you want, more than just limbs flying in your face (but seriously, who doesn’t love a good flying fist into the audience?)
I hope you enjoy! And don’t forget: practice makes perfect, and even as tedious and tiresome as it may get, you’ll keep getting better…and better…until you’re even more freaking awesome than you already are!!
