Fire Nymph

And lo, her righteous fury burst into an unquenchable flame, white hot as the sun. With a wave of her hand she laid waste to all the fools who dared defy her, leaving naught but ashes.

I was feeling particularly inspired tonight. Sacha's indignation over Digital Pinay 2005 mobilized several of her friends and caught the attention of the Philippine Computer Society organizers. They promptly reviewed their beauty contest. He, he, never get in the way of a woman on a mission.

Anyway, the little incident gave me the idea of drawing a fire nymph, the results of which I am very pleased with. Oil pastels, turpentine, and colored pencils. Backgrounds were done with turpentine mixed with bits of oil pastel.

I took intermediate scans of my work as well, so here's its evolution.

Hey, I'm making progress!


  1. The moment I saw the heading I knew that you were inspired. Apparently, Joey Alarilla has made contact with Sacha already. I told him to read Sacha's blog earlier in the day and he is waiting for PSC to reply already.

    Hell hath no fury like women on a rampage! Especially Sacha;) One feisty girl!

  2. He, he, thanks very much, Clair.

  4. Hey Dominique! Jesse Liwag here from OHSI. Remember me? With the beard? What a surprise! I was googling for images of buses and I ended up on your website.

  5. Hey, Jesse! Good to hear from you. Buses? However did I get linked to buses?
