Design Plan

First Draft

The mural was initially assigned to be painted on a parking lot wall (18x18meters) but one of our co-collaborators, later on, decided to shift gears and move us into a much more challenging location—the apartment ridge underpass

Design Plan

Final Design

I divided the artwork into 3 legs. Leg 1: Discovery Primea x Tuscany Makati side, Leg 2: The Main tunnel, and lastly, Leg 3: 6750 Building x North Drive Carpark.

Production Phase

Mural Painting

I started at the main tunnel. The proximity of the floor and ceiling made it extra challenging to sketch the artwork but I manage to build the assets slowly. It was a trial-and-error process, simultaneously sketching and coloring the main background at the same time. The background colors helped me adjust the sketch as it slowly build the silhouette of the characters.
