Hello,


I apologized for all the lack of updates and slow response to all. I am currently away from my main working station due to a required annual family vacation to  our province because of holiday season. I will resume all the work updates on January 2, 2017, though I brought some of my works here while out of town and might post in my gallery when my internet connection is good.


Anyway, I would like to take this opportunity to THANKS everyone for the all out support and patience.I wish everyone the best and Advance HAPPY NEW YEAR! BIG THANKS as well to all my art patrons, you are the best!


Sincerely ,
John Becaro

I'll reciprocate by posting more artworks later. :)

This is the reason why I can't simply abandon deviantart, this is still such a great online community eversince I was here. 
It is my home and I just recently commemorated my 10 years here! Wow. :)

Last Day of my Core Membership


Since 2005 or 2006, I was been a subscriber and they called it now Core membership.

Today, marks the end of my core membership ( Sep 22, 2016) 

I don't know but this makes me emotional and a bit melancholic. It brings back a lot of memories as well.

I have tried to apply for new core membership but I really can't understand how it will go. I have check that
I have billing for every 3 months, though I am not privy how it works. I wanted to be billed yearly I guess
and will try to change it later. I hope it will have no problem.

The weird info that I got is this as well:
You are already enrolled in automatic billing. Your next bill will be in 46 years, 8 months and 2 weeks.

Oh well. I love you Deviantart , no other place like you. Specially all the friends I met here. Deviantart
is also the birthplace of my online art career . Time changed a lot though. 


PS: Just saw that I am now 10 years resident of deviantart. :tears:

Thank You very very much for all your greetings thorugh notes and comments today. I am overwhelmed and blessed.

It is very hard for a Digital Artist if Computer problems arises. We have to deal with viruses, malwares, spywares
and program errors in a daily basis. But the biggest problem would always be when a digital artist have no computer to use for
work anymore. Hardware malfunctions and damages are the biggest obstacle along the way like motherboard damage,
harddisk and RAM errors. Blue Screen of Death is also always our Nightmare. Imagine, it happened to me most of the
time. Mixed it with Life Complications like marital issues, fiscal crisis, health, disaster management and others. The result
will always be downward spiral, frustration and depression. I have been trough all of that and up to this moment , I 
am STILL paying so dearly.

Perhaps, my past decisions has been bad . I will review all of that, and I am learning a lot. My Life  has been in
constant struggle and my present is connected to my past.

I allowed myself to become a tool and not what I deserved to be, that's the sad realization every time my birth date
comes along. I become a shadow of my past self of temporary success and long time failure.

Freelancing has been hard for me, paying bills was haunting me weekly. And I have to look for immediate fund
to prevent my family from house eviction each time.  Living in a 3rd world country does not help at all. Maybe I have to 
re think if I can still survive from my sinking ship or gave another try? Or get back to corporate world ? My paradigm for
reality needs to be self evaluated. Nevertheless , Art is still and always my sanctuary. Freelance is a way.

One thing for sure, for the people who are close and knows me very well. I am not giving up. I will never gave up.
That means I have no where to go , except drawing. heh. I LOVE DRAWING! It's my Life.

I am saying this because it's my birthday and each time, I feel that I need to reaffirm my existence as an artist.

Thank you so much for supporting me and being patient to me, specially for those who I still owe artwork.
If only I could control the delays,  I would. But my life and health has been a constant mess. But I guarantee, I 
work hard. Really hard.

Today, I celebrated my birthday by producing this artwork:

Heroes of the Storm by johnbecaro

Done the grayscale around 3 days. The colors is around 20 hours with Adrenaline rush and the drive of challenge.
 This artwork is my first bday gift for myself. I have been longing
to draw Starcraft specially Kerrigan or Any Blizzard
Heroes. After so many technical problems 
and life up's and down, I am still here drawing. I'll post more artwork in my gallery
soon.  
The 4days work for this was a good tune up for me and my new motherboard. It went well as well. Also
 I did a livestream of the graycale work here: 
livestream.com/accounts/938213…


Thank you very much again for understanding me. I want you to know that I appreciate you a lot
and I will continue to live. No matter what. For Art. For my family.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL ! Remembering Jesus Christ , his life and teachings on his special day.
"Light of the World", art by Jay Bryant Ward

The last 5 days were one of the most heart pounding events that took place unto me. 5 days before we finalize our work to be submitted to the printer, I became really sick. VERY SICK with high fever and intense sore throat that all i did is go to bed instead of drawing. 6 more pages were remain undone, and pages not yet finalized on lay-out. This is the 3rd sickness I got since September. On the 3rd day I went on consultation and the result was I got Tonsilitis and Hyper tension symptoms. I bought expensive medications while on low funds and took the meds. I went stronger day by day and started working back on my graphic novel. God moves in mysterious ways! We were able to complete the 60 pages today for Pintura; Panimulang Yugto in less than 2 months (or more) and was able to make it to the printer without stress. The power of determination and the Holy Spirit within us... Thank you Lord, we at Pintura Comics Group survived the challenges.


I apologize for all the commission delays. I am resuming back now to my regular commission works and will all get back to

Updates ( Aug. 15)

So, I haven't notice that this journal hasn't been updated for almost 25 days. I apologize for those who inquired and ask for commissions. It took me more than 2 weeks to finally get back to my regular work phase. After several attempts of troubleshooting. I  found out and confirmed that the main culprit of my "new computer" problem was a defective RAM(memory) . The Blue screens of death , bugs, errors are now gone. I tested 3 attempts of livestream brodacast of my work processing and the 3rd one was successful. I am planning to make regular live broadcast everytime I got a chance, you can follow and watch me working live on my workstation here, say hello if you are from deviantart: new.livestream.com/accounts/93…
That means I am now having a healthy computer workstation. I am now able to catch up some backlogs and be efficient again. I was also able to submit more pending artworks that started last week. I am still thankful to all who patiently wait and gravely apologize for the delays. Ciao and God Speed.

(July 21_2014)
Hello. Here I am again, I'd like to quickly advise everyone about some commission delays. I gravely apologize for some lack of gallery updates as well. Last week, our city has been hit again by a huge typhoon . Thanks God, we are all fine, no serious or major damages. It took us 2 days to completely have electricity and internet back.

While doing some major household clean up on the typhoon aftermath, me and my wifey discussed our future. So, an idea just came into my mind that I need to update my "ancient" computer desktop, my working  station. My very supportive wife agreed to co-finance and we decided to buy a 22"LCD Monitor and a CPU with intel icore3 specs to replace my 8.5" crt monitor.  I thought it was still a dream or it will take me some years to have them. I felt so blessed.

It is 2 days ago that I am now initially using my new workstation. But all the softwares, externals and operating system functions is not yet perfect. It is still having some bugs and compatibility issues. Blue screen of death is always appearing and it corrupted my very first artwork that took me halfday to finish. Luckily, It took me one sleepless night to recover the psd file which is almost impossible to do so . Photoshop and other functions was functioning fast and sharp  though I have to use back ups and be cautious about saving files since the OS has automatic error shutdown often leads to file corruptions. I also need to transfer all my digital presets, file back ups,  adjust a lot of settings and install the needed hardwares. My brother, which is my tech support is only available on weekends. I hope that the system will be almost perfect in 2 weeks just like my last working station.

Again, I sincerely apologize. Once my transition period for my new workstation is done, my speed and accuracy will double up massively. Goodbye to computer slowness, lags and hangs. My new workstation is better, faster and more powerful than my 8 year old desktop/ cpu plus my monitor is now larger and color accurate, it felt heaven when I render colors and create 3d models. The 22" LCD monitor indeed an advantage. The upcoming months will be surely exciting. It's about time that I have to UPDATE and let go of my old workstation, it has sentimental value to me and has been a great partner for 8 years.

Anyhow, For those who haven't received any sketches or wips, I gravely apologize, please note or email me, sometimes artworks pile up and I forgot to send them or I thought I did or some are still on process. Just give me sometime to response and sort things out. I also apologize for those who asked to commission me, I'll open up when my plates are almost clear .

I will post more artwork in my deviantart gallery later today. I am so thankful to all your continued patience and support.

GOD BLESS Everyone.

Hello,

This is just a quick journal update to inform everyone that I am still here. :)

I have been on and off from sickness due to heavy hot weather here in my country, recently
I got a severe flu for about 3-4 days. I also notice that it was not only me who experienced this
here in Manila. Anyway, I am still recovering now, though I  still be needing enough
rest and get to my "machine mode", heh. Our weather patterns here is getting weird and
changing abruptly. Also, there's a lot of offline life events that took place while I was gone
deviantart inactive for a month.

I apologized for those who are still waiting for their commissions, and some might have
received updates already. Unfortunately, some of you may receive updates before this month
ends as I am still wrapping up art projects aside from commissions. If in any case, I cannot
immediately respond to you , this is an assurance that I am not forgetting my obligations.
There are files that are yet to be filtered and sketches to be scan for approval but I will
need to take them one by one. If in any case, you haven't seen your name on the list in
my journals, just inform me, I still got my master copy at my 2 working units, my desktop
and laptop. I am yet to update the commission journals in real time and in coordination
with what I have done already and what are not.

For those who are asking to commission me, I apologize for not attending to you all immediately,
I'll get back to you all in 2 weeks when my working plates is not hectic again. I hope you won't
feel bad. Sorry, COMMISSIONS ARE TEMPORARILY CLOSED until further notice.

I'm also updating again my deviantart gallery starting tommorrow, and it seems, I have lots
of artworks  which are not yet posted here. And finally, I am getting ready to launch my
professional website and this deviantart will still get updates since it will still be connected
to my website. It's been 7 years that I have no website that categorizes my lifetime
works, some are not posted here. I finally found a platform that will showcase my work
in the mainstream companies. I am excited to show them to all my friends here. No,
do not worry, I am not leaving deviantart, lols. I will always be here and I have friends here
since I began to get online.

Thank you so much for your continued support and insurmountable patience, I hope
I can be able to reciprocate you by providing the best artwork I can make.

Best Regards and God Bless. :)

SPED Highschool's Editorial Cartooning and Basic Drawing Workshop. September 20, 2013. Cadiz City, Negros Occidental, Philippines.

Last year, I also managed to conduct another 1 day Editorial Cartooning and Basic Drawing Workshop to highschool students.

Here's a video for a 15 minutes live demo challenge I did to showcase what I have been lecturing the whole day,
It's spontaneous by the way, I just plan it out during the demo itself and the idea just came out naturally:



Here's the output of the demo:


I also did a quick demo for digital coloring as well:


A photoops with the school organizers:

More photos of the workshop, located here:

So far, it felt good to finish the workshop, I remember my past self, when I am a
cartoonist during highschool and college days. :)

If you wanted me to conduct similar workshops to your schools,
just drop me a note or email me. Thanks.









Last December, during the holidays , me and my family went on an annual vacation. I used some of my time to personally help rebuild my big brother's house which was destroyed due to the wrath of the Super Typhoon Haiyan. Related past journals: fav.me/d6vgmuy and fav.me/d6tklso

Here's some of the photos I take during my stay on my parent's house and the rebuilding effort : 

Here's the destroyed house of my brother during and after the supertyphoon:

After I went back to Manila, the reconstruction was temporarily halt due to lack of construction materials because 80% of my local cities house residences were also destroyed. Imagine the damage ( but it was nothing compared to Tacloban City proper which was totally wiped out) . There was high demand of supplies that we have to wait till there is available supplies again. And then, some of the remaining funds were used because my brother's pregnant live in partner were hospitalized due to low level of potassium, which could be hazardous to her condition. We will resume reconstruction this month when we get another set of funds
even I'm here already in Manila. 

Also, I have updated the links to photos of Haiyan relief efforts:

THANK YOU SO MUCH TO ALL WHO MADE A DIFFERENCE AND HELPED OUR COUNTRY. And to all who help my brother,  immediate families and friends We are so blessed and honored to be part of the global community.

Our Heartfelt Gratitude!

#PHthankyou | The Philippines says Thank You!



I apologize for the lack of updates for the past 2 weeks, I'm having some recurring cold sickness (including my daughter)
due  to weird cold climate here in the Philippines, it was  supposed to be going to summer period ...

I haven't got my "flu shots" for years after I resigned from my regular job, and it seems my own body has it's own version of healing with out the vaccine: and it's getting enough rest...

Plus a lot of things happened personally after I get back to Manila like doing a lot of errands offline,  we "intentionally" didn't get a new house helper and nanny here at home . January 2014 has started really slow for my productivity but still picking up my best  to get back to my working flow.

I also apologize for the people who are still waiting for their Standard or Character Commissions. For those who signed up for the
$20 Promo Commission, I presume that you read my Terms and Conditions of Service and that you would not be upset if in any case I haven't done any update from it or haven't immediately responded on you for the past week or 2 . Nevertheless I am picking up my working endurance and here's hoping to draw more this upcoming 1st 2 weeks of February.

I have more artworks on my file folders and I can't wait to post them here in my gallery as soon as I get the chance. I draw to pay bills and food, so there is really no room for me to be sick ( but sometimes, it's beyond my control no matter what I do :( ).

I'm checking all the commission status updates and list today. If you were not on the list, please feel free to inform me. Once I agree to do your commission purchase, I immediately encode and enlist you in my laptop record, the deviantart
journal update is sometimes not real time.

Thank you so much for the patience, understanding and for the insurmountable trust .

Cheers!
Just came back from a long-exhausting 1 day sea travel.
The last 8 days was CRAZY as well since there are lots
of schedule changes but our annual and "required" family
holidays off went well. Thanks God we returned safe
and sound.

To all clients and commissioners, I gravely apologize for
the lack of updates and I am very thankful for your patience.
I don't have the best internet connection the last 8 days
because we are away from the cities. Give me at least 10 days
to recuperate, organize and settle down to normalize my creative
working  phase and schedule. I might have major updates this
weekend or as soon as possible.

I can't wait to draw and resume work today.
It's AWESOME to be back.

Best Regards and God Speed.
