My Advance Christmas Present to All of You

Monday, December 23, 2013
Hi everyone! Advance Merry Christmas!

I'm sorry if I haven't posted anything this past two weeks. The Christmas spirit brought out my inner procrastinator which resulted in a review slump. But don't worry, I didn't waste all my time watching movies/anime with my siblings. Some of my time was spent drawing/sketching stuff. So since I owe all of you an apology for my sort-of semi-hiatus, I will show you a book-inspired fan-art I created recently.

I got inspired to create this drawing after I received an email from the awesome publicist of Abrams & Chronicles regarding my most anticipated book of 2014. It is not a secret that I'm a huge fan of Splintered by A.G. Howard (read my review here) and I was over the moon when I found out I got approved for Unhinged. The excitement and giddiness from the news gave birth to this fan-art of Morpheus. Here he is in his chibi form.

This is my raw sketch of him. I wasn't planning on coloring it, actually but when I transferred that photo in my laptop, I realize how bland it is. I mean, it wouldn't be Morpheus without his blue hair, dark wings and eccentric outfits, right? So I used my Photoshop skills (which is nothing much to be brag about) to give life to it. What do you think? Did you like his Christmas-themed outfit?

If you didn't like it, here's more matching outfits to choose from.

To be honest, I dont like Morpheus because he's manipulative and cryptic. But despite my dislike of him, I have to admit that he is an interesting bug, I mean, guy with a morbid sense in fashion. I really had a blast drawing him especially his hat. And speaking of hat, I don't know how to draw a top hat adorned with moth and bugs so I just made it a little bit steampunk. It still suits him, don't you think?

Anyway, that's all for now. Fans of Jeb, don't worry. I'll chibi-fy him too and of course, Aly and the other Wonderland characters. 

I will appreciate every comments and constructive criticisms about my drawing so don't be shy to say what you honestly think of it. Okay? Thank you in advance!
