"To started with this look, I used white poster paints for the outline. Next I mixed color white and blue to the match the color of the sky. The I painted green for the trees and mountain which has a darker color. And I also used color yellow paint for the fields," Yabes explained.

"Para mas madaling magmix ang color since mag aad nalang tayo ng green and white for the details, I used three layers of color yellow and green dito sa neck area since hindi gaano pigmented yung color ng yellow. I also used a little white para magpop yung pagkayellowish," she added.

Cordillera- Igorot mythological creatures "Pinading", "Gatui" and "Lampong" are now making a scene as stars in a comic book, Gayang  launched last Saturday.

A group  of Senior High School students studied and discovered stories about Igorot mythological creatures in the high lands of Cordillera. This inspired the making of Gayang that includes some of the artworks of the students, Gerald Asbucan, the creator of Gripo comics brand, said. 

Gatui of Ifugao is one among the favorite characters. Gatui is believed to feast on the souls of people most specially unborn children. It has a slight resemblance of the well known  "manananggal".

Likewise, Pinading is another Tuwali Ifugao creature. It is believed to be a spirit wearing a yellow hair that looks like a European fairy.

Lampong on the other hand, is like a dwarf  and known to be the protector of nature.

The group wants to share the Igorot culture through these untold legends, Asbucan said.

"We barely scratched the surface of the Igorot folklore so we will put more effort into research to be able to feature more highland myths," he added.

In six months time, the next Gayang series will be out.
