Ng enrolled in the School of Fine Arts at the University of Philippines. He learned anatomy, sketching, draftsmanship as well as watercolour, oil and other media. He learned the history of Western art from Greek and Roman periods to Impressionism. The Amorsolo brothers were his teachers. Fernando taught him oil painting and his brother, Pablo taught him draftsmanship.  These were the foundations and influences in which he began his career.

In this drawing, we can see his skill emerging.  Even though it is all in charcoal, we can almost feel the differences in weight and texture of the fabrics.  We can also see how well he can render the human form.
