Enamorada by saki-guzman
Enamorada
Original characters. I just wanted to put her in a big,  poofy gown similar to Jennifer Connelly's in The Labyrinth. I used this beautiful fairy costume from Firefly Path as basis for this.

Menagerie - 5 of 5 (Special Feeling) by saki-guzman
Menagerie - 5 of 5 (Special Feeling)
Earlier last year, there was heavy snow fall in Japan and this guy in an interview embarrassed his girlfriend by saying that it was the 'perfect time to spend with your loved one', or something like that. Netizens reacted, the Special Feeling meme was born and since it doesn't have to be a couples only thing, I thought I'd continue where I left off with the Lane family. This one features Lois and General Sam Lane.

Menagerie - 4 of 5 by saki-guzman
Menagerie - 4 of 5
I recently got into Asian dramas/telenovelas which enjoy a level of popularity here in the Philippines since the early 2000's. I didn't care to give them a try back then since I only watched anime. Now that I've seen a few, I find them mildly entertaining in spite of (or maybe because of?) the melodrama, over the top moments, cliched problems and unrealistic characters. I didn't include the dreaded amnesia plot device here, instead I have the stereotypical mean parent who causes a lot of the problems.

Characters depicted here are Lucy Lane (in 1 & 2), Metallo (in #4), General Sam Lane and Lois Lane in all 5.

Something I wonder about when I see works of art like this (by puimun), this (by tir-ri) or this (by Himmapaan).

From what I know- what these illustrations have in common is that they're all made using traditional media. Not doing a digital vs. traditional comparison here. That seems pointless, given that both have their merits. I often choose digital simply because it's so much more convenient. But there's a certain character and uniqueness to traditional art that digital doesn't have. It's that thing though, that makes me wonder how exactly an artist can give his/her work away, even if there's a paycheck to be had later.

I mean, it's not like you can click a button and make another copy. There's only one original we're talking about here...and even if you took the time and effort to recreate that single painting, it's just not the same.
