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?

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:

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!

Merry Christmas to all of you!

Art Final Project – Construction

Hello, everyone! I’ve realized that I’ve not posted anything for this whole month, and it’s my birthday month too! So that’s a shame… I’m here to make up for it by posting my super cool final piece for my school theme of Construction. Here it is!

Series of Prints

So, these are a series of prints (done by collagraphy, a really interesting method of printing) that show the stages of construction. I have achieved this by building on lines, negative space, and color.

Personally, I find the second one a bit dark (I suddenly forgot how to make brown at that point) but I do like the white spaces.

I worked really hard on this and am proud – to a certain extent – as to how it turned out. Hope you all give me some feedback!

Thanks :)

Jack-o-Lantern Puppet

Happy Halloween everyone! Hope you’re all having nice chills and spooks celebrating wherever you are.

I realized that I had not posted an Illustration Friday themed post in ages, so I thought I’d do so today. This week’s theme: Puppets.

Halloween

It was just a quick five-minute thing done straight from the computer, so please excuse its extremely awful proportions, stance, etc.

Happy Halloween!

Hourglass Painting – First Conceptual Piece

Hello, everyone! I am extremely sorry for this long hiatus. I got really caught up on school work – the art part of which I’m loving but is quite hard – and couldn’t really update this blog. However, I have an exciting update: I’ve finished the acrylic piece I showed you earlier! I’d like to show it to you all. I’m quite happy with it:

Hourglass

This is actually quite a bad photo of it, so I’ll upload a better one later. But I hope you enjoy it. I had fun doing it.

Quick Portrait

After coming home from school (sixth period… the horror!) I was tired and bored, and I had my color pencils next to me, so I just thought I’d draw something from scratch… and on scratch paper. On my calendar I have a boy band (please don’t judge) so I drew one of the members from there. I do not worry about you discovering which band I like, though: the portrait is so awful the person is unrecognizable. And so, here it is!

Colored Portrait

This took roughly two or three minutes to draw. I quite like how the lines are all of different colors… might be an interesting thing to investigate later on. Sorry if I’m rambling. I’m just so tired. Curse you, school! That is why I am drawing on your homework!
