To some people, I probably draw and paint great but I do not agree. I don’t have the basics. I just draw and sketch based on what I like and my instincts. To a professional illustrator, what I draw probably has a lot of proportion errors. Sometimes I try to learn, most of the time, I’d just say “dang it”, I’d paint as I like Watercoloring is one of my favorite past time, an activity that I’m finding lesser time for it. On random days, I’d miss watercoloring so badly, I’d take out my sketch book and browse deviantArt, search for the prettiest picture and sketch it out.
Mostly, I’d look for fashion modelling photos. Recently, I’m very much in love with Jingna‘s work. I am a fan of her new series of fantasy photoshoot, Motherland of Chronicles. I can’t help it but to sketch and paint them. Unfortunately, I didn’t do great justice to her original work. Perhaps it will do you much good to visit her gallery and check out her wonderful shots.
This is my once-a-blue-moon illustrating excercise. It’s my personal training to learn to sketch human expressions. I have 2 thick sketch books worth of watercolors. And started a new one. Since it’s for practice and most of the time, I never know when to stop. I filled up a whole piece of A3 watercolor stock with too much extra stuffs that spoils the whole sketch. At least, I am glad that my trusty watercolor hasn’t rot in a corner
On a side note, one of my biggest change in 2014 is the outbreak of bold lipsticks. I’m onto YSL Rouge pur Couture these days, thanks to Paula’s great makeup influence.

it seems that i did not update at all this february :S But i’ve been quite active updating my folio blog.
it’s not easy maintaining both sides.
recent workload includes preparing a presentable portfolio for internships. internships are seriously mentally stressful stuffs. you’ll never know who would appreciate your works while there could be others who dislike them deeply. but i guess, this internship searching is over soon
i have zillions of chinese new photos that i have not share. sorry for the lateness, but imma head to Paris tomorrow with my family 6hours of longggg car journey… and today i did this, for fun, training my skills
I’ve been wanting to paint jaejoong for a while! ever since his birthday. I finally did it today.
My first final piece took me less than 2hours. But it doesn’t look like him at all. then i edited again for like half an hour? something’s still off. *sigh** looks like I still have problem handling stylized portraits, instead of my photo-realistic style.
I like my new style pretty well, there’s a few problem with certain parts of a face. But i guess it’s the training i need,
My Vampire Diaries piece is done! The vertical poster style, suggested by my teacher…
I did a horizontal one too; which i have not uploaded – but it’s already my desktop wallpaper for the moment.
Cya lovely readers!
I shall be off to my late beauty sleep for Paris tomorrow!

woa; i know i know, i’ve missing out on blogging
much disappointed as readers are, but then school decided to have the same deadline for all subjects! ok; mistyped, same deadline for the week! so from monday to friday, i have an assignment to hand up.
I passed up today’s bloody text critic! Even presented to it, totally horrible. I totally hate talking in front of everyone, especially for such a class. I don’t mind presenting my work; but critic stuffs?! I totally can’t make it! It’s pretty crappy as a presentation I gave ARGH my inner voice in my head sound perfect, but when my lips do their job, ***dang*** the sky crumbles-
I’m still quite horrified about how badly i think my presentation is. Sheesh, why can’t chairman get rid of this class??! After all those important points that everyone pointed out?! =_= Sadly, it seems like this teacher has a special power over other teachers like DUH?! O.O Thinking about how she gladly place her hand over my shoulder…. its like ewww; deep inside I was screaming; “NO! I don’t want your attention!”
Once again I have a number of outdated photos. Which i doubt i will be posting today.
Just wanted a quick update~
One of the heaviest “assignment” due this week; POPPINGGGGG-up again;
My previous pop up for my ladies was more fun to make. This was kinda brain-racking for some parts. But quite suddenly… im thinking if this popup is worth the trouble. Too late to regret anything now, it’s for wednesday! I’m still in the midst of gathering my research to assemble a notebook; Heh! Double-side printing, hello to more problems!
Another thing to celebrate! ~_~ among these difficult times, a new piece of illustration for tomorrow Seems like every new assignment, I would progress to a new level of painting. I think I’ve got a better grasped color selection. Plus I’m proudly presenting the real and official NEW character. Pencil sketched, then because of my “eye leveling” position, corrected in Photoshop; analyzing the shadings with Isabelle’s guides and teacher’s pointers~ I’ve advanced to a new level again XD Well, I will find time to update my portfolio
All right, I’m all lightheaded already, even though it’s only 11.16PM. At least I’ve got my morning tomorrow I think I’d prefer to sleep in, but then, thinking about the rush to find my appetite for an early lunch before my stomach screams at me later, waking up early should be a good choice D: ^-^
Stay tuned! Driving trips and older food photos from Lacanau~
(p.s. if you realized, it seems like EVERY YEAR, I will go to Lacanau for a gourmand meal =3)
