Kampilan ni Makabo by jbcasacop Kampilan ni Makabo by jbcasacop
At last! I've finally made my first fantasy painting for this year! This is my own interpretation of Makabo, that badass tikbalang warrior who happens to be my favorite character from the graphic novel Skyworld, created by :iconiantoy: and Mervin Ignacio.

Right now they have this Pin up shout out thing going on ([link]). This is the colored version of my entry.

I hope you like it! :)

Additional notes:

Adobe Photoshop CS5
Several custom brushes
Approximately 20 hours

Tikbalang - a supernatural creature from Philippine folklore commonly depicted as having the head of a horse and the body of a man.

Kampilan - a popular single-edged sword widely-used in the precolonial Philippine Archipelago.

If you look closely at the kampilan Makabo wields in this image, you'd notice that it's decorated with okir-based patterns and three alibata characters namely, "ma", "ka", and "bo".

edit:

After a few days, I found out that Makabo was holding his Kampilan the wrong way so I edited this painting by reversing the blade and the pommel of the sword. Many thanks to ~kalis6295 [link] for informing me about this.

ang ganda at ang galing ng painting! salamat. ang comment ko lang ay baliktad ang pagkahawak ng kampilan - sa painting ay nakaharap sa talim ang humahawak ng kampilan. ang tamang hawak ay kagaya dito: goo.gl/6B4sy. salamat muli, at sana ay dumami pa ang mga painting mo tungkol sa mga mito at leyenda ng kapuluan. super!

Ay! Oo nga ano? Maraming salamat sa pagbabahagi sa akin ng impormasyong ito! Ang ginawa ko kasing reference photo ay ito: [link] at sa larawang iyan, hindi malinaw kung nasaan ang matalas na gilid ng patalim. Dapat pala tinignan ko din yung nasa Wikipidia dahil nakalarawan doon yung sinasabi mo. Kaso sarado ang website nila noon. Maraming salamat ulit! Mamaya ay ie-edit ko ito! :)
