I've been off and on here on Deviantart, because of number of reasons.
Those who are friends with me on facebook knows that I've been visiting hospital and clinics here in Manila for various ailment for the past four years. From lower back pain, depression and anxiety attack. With the regulars of cough and cold, every time weather temperature changes and migraine. So, it's not been easy for me to draw. Since most of the time I need to rest early after dinner (Oh, have a day job too, that requires 1hr to 1and1/2hrs of travel  going to work and going home). I sometimes manage to draw two pin ups or pages a week. But there were weeks and months that I really have to be on meds and sadly cannot focus on the things to do. Those were the dark days.

I hope and pray that this 2017 be very different from those previous years, I'm hoping that this year will be much better now.
Health wise and ARTWORK OUTPUT WISE. :D
CHEERS!

Hi guys! How are you doing?
Haven't upload works from this page sometime now.
Ever since the decline of paid commissions here, I shifted out to other online media.

Hope DA can find a way to make commissioning artwork active once more.

GUIDE to artist RATES by Mykemanila

I just saw this and wanted to share. :)

I guess this is it. The thing that some of my friends are talking about couple of years back (two or three years ago). What would happen if everyone can do commission and everyone can charge it like, they are giving them all away.

I tried to be optimistic and still am, but I guess the market and the people in DA are not group base/fan base like it was before. Me and some other artist clearly are affected when the City of Heroes group was closed. Members gone separate ways. Some joined other superhero online groups and some just lived on with the great memories the game had given them.

For DA, it changes the community. Gone are those cool traditional paintings. Sculptors. Cool photography manipulations and traditional pencil, Inking of comic book. I used to see great friends visit my page almost everyday some two years ago. Now I barely chat with them.

I miss the friends and critique and some haters and *Trolls. LOL
I miss the old deviantart community, but I guess everything has its end.
And I guess,this is it. I am still hoping that it can bring the fire and crazy days back. But I know, I don't want it to follow FRIENDSTER.

So I will now stop doing commissions here and just make my deviantart account as my primary on-line portfolio. But if there are some people who still believes in my work, and my contemporaries work...just sent us a NOTE and we will happy to reply back.

THANK YOU DA. You helped me polish my work. You gave me confidence. And you gave my dream to draw comicbooks a reality.

Thank you.
MYKE

SELLING PRINT 
HELPING A FELLOW KNIGHT from TACLOBAN. by Mykemanila
I am selling this print to help a friend who lost his home (the whole City of TACLOBAN) to hurricane Haiyan.
I think the whole world knows what happened to their city,
and sadly we haven't heard from him (update: until this morning - he is now on his way to Manila).

I will be selling this print on a glossy 11 X 17 board.
All the earnings will be saved and hopefully we can hear from Jay or his sister so we can send it to him. 

The print is P200 (pesos) or $6 outside the country (shipping rate TBA).

Hi guys! Been awhile since I last posted something. Hope everyone are doing great with their respective careers.
Been away from DA when got an offer to pencil a book for ADVENT COMICS. Pretty psyched!
My first paid gig and it really is sweet. Our boss treat us nicely and a hard working man for his family and his company.
Promoting the books every convention in town. And keeping us updated.
Excited to get the next project "script for the next issue", for me to do.

Then, commissions are also coming in. I am still doing some great stuff for
:iconfranklintkeener:  and  :iconjust2draw:
And lined up some other pin-up commissions.
Great 3rd quarter for me. Hope the final quarter of this year would be the same till next year.

Will update you guys again soon.

Hi guys,
I know it has been long since I put up a commission and I would really want to but projects came in and I am totally blessed. And I thank God for every blessing that I am receiving. But before I put up any commission on my own, I would be putting up a Green Lantern artwork (done on a GL blank cover #13) to sell this month to help a fellow artist and a good friend to me and my wife Robin. His name is Vergil Espinosa. :icondaverge:</span>
Verg to close friends was diagnosed with kidney failure, and he is doing dialysis at home.
I am asking everyone for help by bidding on the book. I will try and post it by Sunday and we could start the bidding there. and will end it after two weeks. I will post the money transfer receipt after I send it to Verg.

You can also read Robin piece she wrote on our blog, regarding Vergil.

I would love to THANK YOU in advance for your help and generosity.

First of all HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone.
For those who are close to me, they knew that I am always on DA 24/7
But why all of a sudden I went AWOL here.

Well, after getting a lot of works from :iconfranklintkeener: (which I haven't send yet...sorry)
his commission made me notice by people in the comic industry.
They are just starting, but very aggressive at hiring talented people.
They take care of us very good and they let us feel real welcome
and appreciated. Now, I am working on my first comic book and after finishing two covers.
Had some pin-ups in-between pages to do as well. The schedules are too tight.
I cannot even get a new subscription here on DA. (sucks) :(

Even if I wasn't around here on DA, people STILL are asking me and sending message for commissions.
I really appreciated your love and support guys, I will try and accommodate you somehow
but may I remind you that I can no longer promise a quick deadline. :(
I still have a pending artwork for my good friend Peter.
:iconjust2draw:

Well, thank you for reading and hope to update you as frequent as before.
Take care all. God Bless!!!

Myke

My first ever professional cover art for Advent Comics (Universe) mykemanila.deviantart.com/art/….
1st COVER Gig by Mykemanila

I really haven't gone beyond the art commission phase since I know what it's like to draw for a comicbook company (strict in schedules, tough on details and so on and on) since my mentor worked for Image, DC and Marvel comics. He knows what and where my work stands, not yet ready. And when I got this job, I was really really blown away. The feeling cannot be explained. I really am very happy. After doing this, I got my next COVER and a interior job lined up.

Thank you to Tony of Advent Comics for believing in me and supporting me with my career. And to my mentor - Roy Allan Martinez, THANK YOU for sharing to me your wisdom.

But I am "still OPEN FOR COMMISSION" if you guys are still interested - just send me a note, and I will reply as soon as I can.
