My Faith Is Stronger Than Your Agonieeees! by Nick-Ian
My Faith Is Stronger Than Your Agonieeees!
I revisited the world of Final Fantasy 13-2. Oh, the songs! Right into the feels!

The soundtrack in this game is a winner. Even the track you hear in the title screen is just lovely! One of my faves is the Oerba theme. The title of this drawing is a line from the lyrics. Another fave is Noel's theme that plays in A Dying World (which is the setting in this drawing/painting).

The sand was nice to paint.

Watercolor and ballpen.

When Marnie Was There by Nick-Ian
When Marnie Was There
Do yourself a favor and watch When Marnie Was There. It's Studio Ghibli doing what it does best.

Like its predecessors, I adore the setting. A house by a marsh with a backyard that gets flooded on high tide? With a row boat that you can use anytime docked on your door step? Yeap, where do I sign up to live there? Oh, the film's theme this time is battling depression (by spending time with a ghost that you meet in an abandoned house by the beach). Haha! 

Watercolor and ballpen.

Night Guy by Nick-Ian
Night Guy
The only person who actually beat the snot out of Madara.

My tribute to Might Guy. Oh sorry. I mean in his 8th Gate Titan mode, he calls himself "Night" Guy. Hope they crank up the animation style when he becomes this in the anime.

Watercolor and pen.

Naruto and its characters does not belong to me.
Archer - Shades of Red and Black by Nick-Ian
Archer - Shades of Red and Black
Another set of Archer drawings. 

Hmm... Dunno what else to say. Dumb, Dumber and Dumbest 

Pens and watercolor.

Characters from Fate series. They do not belong to me.
Akito And Unmasked Alexander by Nick-Ian
Akito And Unmasked Alexander
I wonder how long will I wait again to see episode 4 of Akito the Exiled.

Oh, Akito's Alexander got pretty cool when its face "mask" fell off during his berserk mode.
SHI NE! SHI NE! SHI NEEE!!! :laughing:

Pencil and watercolor. Code Geass: Akito the Exiled does not belong to me.
Just returned from another summer trip! But it's different this time 'cause I spent it with a group. Travelling with company does have its plus sides (the most important of which is that I can save a lot on lodging). I don't know how I managed to pull off being with other people on that vacation - I guess it was just a lesson of tolerance.

I was with students doing their on the job training in companies at Cebu. Cebu, though industrialized and filled with buildings growing ever higher, is also famous for its natural wonders and pristine beaches, and with the help of a very good friend, he was a Jesuit brother and a true Cebuano, we were able to go on a boat tour around Mactan - an area known for white sand islands and underwater sanctuaries that are perfect for snorkeling and diving.

The best thing about that trip to Mactan is that I finally figured out how to use a damn snorkel! (Thanks bro!) And I've become confident floating on deep water now and I can somehow maneuver along the surface, well, as long as I have a life jacket. I actually don't know how to swim (and I really should learn it!). 

It was my first time seeing a real underwater coral reef scenario. Prior to this, I only saw them in nature shows or in books. There's such a difference seeing the real thing. I don't know how many hours I floated on the surface just staring at the busy spectacle below me. The fish were fearless of humans. They even approach you expecting food. Guess they're so used to getting fed, it was a marine sanctuary after all. And we did feed them. We just put out scraps of bread, and they'd swarm you like the paparazzi. Haha! 

I did do some solo wandering in Cebu too. I visited far flung Oslob for the white sand bar in Sumilon Island and the majestic Tumalog Falls. I should've gone whale shark watching but I didn't know how to snorkel then. It was only during the Mactan trip that I learned it. And that happened the day after my Oslob trip. Isn't that funny? 

So yeah, pretty awesome trip. And as usual, I've posted all the sketches I made and also some paintings in one deviation - here: Cebu May 2015 by Nick-Ian :D

Hey Nick Ian, long time, no hear! :)

I just had another brilliant idea for a KH Keyblade Armor Request! :idea:

I was thinking about something with Armored Knights Sora Kairi and Riku, with Roxas Xion Axel (Lea) and Namine, charging into battle!
