The Likhaya #DTIYS Contest

I do not normally do the Draw-this-in-your-style things that are rampant in Art Twitter and Instagram. I have done a few, but not many. But I chanced upon this that was recommended to me by a friend who is also an artist from Doodle ni Maria. She showed me her entry and I was excited to do this one. This is a redraw of an original collaboration by Shane Salcedo and Sofia Andres for The Lakambini.


The art competition encourages every Filipina Artist to practice her craft and be creative. I do love the fact that I get to empower Filipinas with my art and draw interesting figures.

I admit the whole piece was a bit of a challenge, especially the hands for the lady with the bilao. I also did not like the headwrap, but I had fun with this. I learned about my figure style and learned that these paintings need more room! I need to use bigger paper for these. I did this in my baohong sketchbook.

Even if I do not win the contest, I do love this piece. More power to the Filipina Artists!
