Danger!

Hello, everyone! Yet again, I’m very sorry that I’ve disappeared again for – how long has it been – around a month? It was that period of tension, fear, suspense… yes, you’ve got it, it was exam period again. I know that I had said in my last post that it was all finished, but it turned out that I actually had two left… It’s finally all done now (at least for this year) so now I can do art all summer!

This week’s IF theme was Danger, and so I thought I’d draw this little cartoon down here. I’m actually going on a trip tomorrow, so I thought I’d fix up something quick with my Faber-Castell marker and Copics.

The exam period sure felt like I was running away from a gigantic shark, and I think I succeeded! :)

Swimming away from that shark called bad grades...

Hope you all have a great summer, and hope to see you soon!

Happy Monster

Hi, everyone! Well, good news: my final exams are finally finished! I still have school for a month, but I’ll probably (hopefully) have more time to do art.

As soon as my exams had finished, I checked the IF blog to see what they’re theme was. I had no inspiration to draw anything, and IF always helps to revive that art creation spirit in me. I saw that the theme was “Monster” so here’s a little creation I made:

Monster

It was just a couple-minute creation, so it’s not that good… but at least I’m back in the zone!

Hope to update you with more art soon.

Self-Portrait!

Hello everyone! I would like to share with you what I consider one of my greatest achievements as of now… an oil paint self-portrait!

If you’ve noticed, I never upload any photos of myself because… well, I don’t actually know why, but I just don’t. But I decided to draw myself using oil paints. I consider it to be a great achievement because this piece is only my third time using oils, and portraits are extremely difficult. But I think that the final product has been done quite well!

So, without further ado, I would like to show it to you:

Portrait

I’m very proud of it! And I also took the in-progress photos because I wanted to share the progress with you.

I started with a burnt sienna undertone to mark the tonal differences and gradually built it up from there. I’m sure there are tens of layers on this painting, which makes it very rich.

This piece took about three months to complete. Wow. Now that I think about it, that’s a quarter of a year! I’m very happy that I finally have something decent to put on my About Me page :)

Till next time.

The True Meaning of Easter

Hello, everyone! First of all, Happy Easter! I hope you enjoy this great celebration wherever you are.

Secondly, it’s been almost two months since I last posted, and I’m extremely sorry. Looks like the International Baccalaureate program has finally taken hold of my life… sigh. Well, at least during this Easter break, I’ll be able to show you what I’ve been doing so far! And I’ve been doing a lot of things, just haven’t had the time to upload.

For today, I did a quick digital drawing on Illustrator, perhaps about the true meaning of Easter. Wish I had more time to do it, but maybe next time.

Holy Cross Stained Glass

I love the stained glass in churches, don’t you? So beautiful, and when the light shines through it, it almost seems like you’re in another world.

Happy Easter to you all

P.S. Perhaps this “the true meaning of…” will become a series :)

Sleeping… Relaxing

So, I’ve realized it’s been forever since I last uploaded something for Illustration Friday, and I felt really guilty about it, and it’s my week-long holidays, so I decided to… post an old illustration for the theme. Well, it’s better than nothing, right?

Massage

This was actually a picture for a massage coupon I made for my dad, done on Adobe Illustrator.

Hope you’re all having a nice spring break!

The Brain

I can’t believe I’ve been so busy as to have forgotten to post a New Year post! It’s already halfway through the first month, and it is only now that I have remembered it. The horror… I will not write resolutions because I know that I can’t keep them this year. What with my final year of high school looming up ahead, and me having to do my SATs, I’d rather not break any promises.

On a happier note, I’ve been doing an art project on how the brain responds to abnormality, so I’ve been drawing the brain (I know, literal, but what can you do?) Here are some of my initial drawings:

Done in watercolor, free style. The second one kind of looks like a colorful beetle…

I hope this project turns out well… Wish me luck!

Oh, and I hope you all have a great year ahead of you!

Christmas Nativity

Hello, everyone and Merry Christmas! I hope that, wherever you are, you are enjoying this wonderful time with a happy and joyful heart.

I know that I haven’t posted anything for over a month, and I’m sorry. I was sick recently (winter is the flu season!) but am better now. And because I am better, I have decided to draw none other than the exact meaning of Christmas: the scene of the birth of Jesus Christ.

Last year, I drew baby Jesus in a manger. So this year, I wanted to extend it to the whole scene, barn and all. So, without further ado, here it is!

Nativity SceneDone with Copic markers, in two days.

Merry Christmas to all of you!
