Ibaloy Warrior by FerdinandLadera Ibaloy Warrior by FerdinandLadera
My illustration of a young warrior from the ibaloy tribe in the province of Benguet, Philippines.

A warrior who has stood amidst violence to fight for his tribe – to be their protector, to be their survivor, and to be their hero against evildoers and subjugators.

Weapons: Sumpit (blowgun) and Itak/machete (sword)
Done in photoshop.

d2 lang ako sa tabi tabi hehehe, nasa pinas din. nakakabilib naman mga gawa mo, di kana maabot pre.

saan ka nag aral ng photoshop painting? mahirap ba mag paint sa photoshop, alam ko lang gamitan ng CS5 ay photo manipulation etc pro yong pag paint mahirap ata, hinde naman kse tinuro yan ni sir borje hahaha.

anyway, pasilip silip lang ako sa mga gawa mo o masterpieces, kumukuha ng technique bka balang araw makagawa dn ako ng photoshop painting or 3d art.

parang nakita na kita minsan sa may festival mall alabang bumaba ng jeep, dko sure kng ikaw yon pro matagal na ata yon 2009 or 2010 pa.

9 years ako sa export company nag dedesign ng mga lightings, etc for export at swerte naman at nakapasyal ako sa Europe kse nag exhibet kmi sa Frankfurt.

sa ngayon nag business nalng me at minsan nag papaint kung may time. old school p din eh, pro hinde pointillism na turo ni maam angeles, mas gusto ko pa din realism using water color at oil.

bigyan mo nman ako ng website san makaka kuha ng free software na pde mag practice ng mag paint.

ano ba mga gamit or hardware na dapat ko bilhin pra mkpg gwa sa photoshop ng painting, im sure mahal.

anyway, nice to meet you here at deviant master ladera.

silip nalang ako pag may time at online.

salamat pre,

Pre salamat sa comment, syensa na sa matagal na reply busy lang sa mga bagay-bagay. Nag-aaral ako ng painting sa photoshop ay sa sariling sikap lang marami naman jan tutorials sa net isearch mo lang kahit sa youtube ka manood madami jan. Photoshop cs5 gamit ko, at wacom tablet yong intuos 3, meron kaba nito? kung wala bumili ka mas may bago na ngayon intuos 5 at mag download ka nalang ng bagong photoshop or kahit cs5 ok na un. Tapos practice lang ng practice maninibago ka sa start pero pag nasanay kana madali nalang, iapplay mo nalang yong natutunan mo sa trad. :)

Buti kapa may business na sure marami kana rin naipon at maganda yong takbo ng business mo, ako eto empleyado parin hehehe.

Reminds me of Rufio from the movie Hook. I wonder if they used the Ibaloy as inspiration.
