Arry used his best tool in a creating a digital art which is Wacom Intous Comic Pen Tablet and laptop with an art software. He uses it everyday in working as a freelance digital illustrator and this is the reason why he prevailed against his opponents.
” I still have unfinished work that I need to comply. I also struggled on how to write a storyline that flows according to the plan. That time, I only have five days before the deadline and it was really a tough challenge for me because of sleepless nights that I spent on finishing my digital artwork. I’m not really good in working under pressure and my only ways of getting through tough times is that, watching my comfort movie like 70th time and even listen to the music that helps me to refresh my mind and to make my body and soul calm,” he added.
Prior to the regionals, the work of Delos Santos was chosen from the four provincial entries, two of which from the main campus and another two from Tario Lim Memorial Campus.

” No one or nothing really in particular who inspires me upon joining the online competition but all I can say is that, I really love the competition especially that this is inclined on my forte and as long as I konw, I can finished it on time,” Arry Delos Santos concluded.
