Gesture Drawing

Now that it’s finally summer break, I can get to painting the things I’d wanted to (look out for those posts in the future!) and also actually post things on this poorly abandoned blog! I’d managed to do some gesture drawing during winter break and on the weekends, so here’s a little collection of them:

Hope to see you more in the future!

Merry Christmas!

My first semester of college is now over, and it’s now Christmas! This year’s Christmas picture shows the drive home for Christmas. I think it’ll go well with the song “I’ll Be Home for Christmas”.

Driving Home for Christmas

I drew the background with pastels, but I wasn’t satisfied with the saturation, so I added the other features with Photoshop using my tablet. I think it went quite well!

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Catch Up

Since a lot has changed since my last post, I thought I’d give a little overview of what’s happened.

  • I finally moved from Singapore to California! After living in Singapore for so long, it was a bit sad leaving, but now I’m in California!
  • I met my grandparents in Korea and gave them a couple of my acrylic paintings that I posted here.
  • And I’ve started college!

I’m taking one design course, which is good because I’m awful at making posters and designs, and I really enjoy it! Here’s one of my projects on color:

Humans in the Forest

I’m really getting the hang of acrylic paintings! Here’s another one that I did. It’s meant to be humans in the forest. It’s a change from my usual illustrative style.

Also, some important news: I’m moving to the US to start college! I’m kind of happy (and nervous, and excited, and scared?) to finally be returning to the US!

Flora Painting

Hi, everyone! After finishing my last cliff painting in acrylic, I decided to do another acrylic painting, this time of a more complex flora landscape. Here it is!

I didn’t take as many progress photos for this one, so I hope you enjoy the final piece 🙂 It is based slightly on Rousseau’s paintings.

Painting of Cliff in Acrylic

Today, I’m going to show you one of my recent paintings of the 12 Apostles near Melbourne (click the link to read more about it.) I went to Melbourne last December, and this painting is drawn from one of my photos that I took there. I haven’t done much acrylic painting, and the ones that I have done don’t really satisfy me. However, I believe that this one is much better!

This is the final piece:

And these are the progress photos:

I think it turned out quite well!

Bullet Journal

I’ve decided to take a break from posting my drawings this week and instead show you one of my new “hobbies”: bullet journaling.

You might have heard of this relatively recent trend. If not, to explain it briefly, it’s about making your own planner using a blank notebook. This website explains it pretty comprehensively, and this website is the bullet journal’s homepage (yes, it even has it’s own website).

So today, I wanted to show you my own bullet journal! I started it last August and started using a new journal this February. Here’s a peek into my new journal.

Here’s also a peek into my old bullet journal. You can see how much I’ve improved aesthetically.

Comment below if you have a bullet journal yourself!
