My sweet prototype for my 2010 Chinese New Year Nengajou

Kyaa, I just finished my very sweet prototype of this year’s Chinese New Year Nengajou (Nengajou is a Japanese New Year card). Like many other CNY (and Japanese ones) cards too, this features a really adorable tiger. The illustration of the tiger is from a easy-to-draw book. It’s real handy 😀

I’ll post up the photo later, okay? Here you go~

I even added 2 more illustrations here!

This time, I’m working around oil pastels! I haven’t used it in a really long time but I certainly did great ;D

More Tie&Dye styled into cards ;D

Hey there! I’ve just finished making some Tie&Dyes (4 to be specific) again this time around and I was making them for Deepavali. (Yeah, I can’t believe I’m giving them out…) This time, I pasted them and turned them into cards XD

The colours used this time was Cobalt Blue, Purple, Pink, Lemon Yellow and White although the colours are sometimes mixed for a different hues or colours. The colours for this batch are kinda pale >_< since I placed a lot of emphasization on more tones and graduation(?). 

Okay these are before,

:I know I said 4 of them but I forgot to take a photo of the last one that I made, sorry >_<

and after,

Another view of it,

and the rest of them…

はい、おわりました!I’m finished! The duration of this tiny project took about 2 hours or so. Again, the tissues are of Kimberly Clark’s Scott brand 🙂

See ya next time!

P.S: My dad asked me, ‘Why don’t you do it on clothes?’. I said , “Don’t dyeing them need lots of money?” Besides, I feel I can’t really be free in choosing the colours and the design of the clothes.

Mid-autumn Festival card!

Hi there! Thanks to all who read this blog as well as willing to look at my artwork, it’s kinda contributes to my self-esteem about my artistic abilities 🙂

Okay, I was asked to draw/make a card so I my imagination helped me ended up with a Mid-autumn Festival card. Only my Pentel Techniclick 0.5 and my Staedtler Rasoplast was used this time.

It’s not that clear but I hope it’s sufficient 🙂

Okay, the streaks of line on the card was supposed to be like a flower or fern? The insects on the cover was inspired by the thought of Fujiwara no Akiko and Abe no Masahiro of Shounen Onmyouji going to Mount Kifune to see the fireflies at the end of summer.

Since summer has ended and it’s already approaching the Chinese Mid-autumn Festival, I finished with a Mid-autumn Festival card.

I used a different approach for the card this time, I folded it in an unconventional way so now it looks like it was inspired from the origami 😀

I will probably put up an opening of a story I wrote, it will probably be considered nonsense but comments or suggestions for the story are welcomed but no bashing of my work 🙂
