The Torch Bearer

Hi guys, my name is Michael John Punsalan, Miko for short.  I don’t think any of you guys have ever heard of me, but I’ve been fortunate enough to have met John thru a good friend of mine, Kathryn Layno.  Kat and I have been friends since college and meeting John just added more awesome into my social life.

I started drawing very young, starting with sketches and doodles of  the Ninja Turtles and the Ghost Busters on my notebooks and any kind of paper I could find.  And since then, I never stopped.

Last weekend John, Kat and moi, with other fellow  artists had a get together to talk about some of the stuff people were planning for upcoming events.  One of them was this thing here.  And to start things off, I decided to do a sketch of the torch bearer from Peter Jackson’s The Two Towers.  I really love the design of the helmets that were used by the uruk hais. And I really loved that scene where the bearer gets shot with arrows but continues to charge in.
