Dedication to a friend

I drew this after I got a rough sketch last night. It’s hopelessly similar to Hinano Yoshikawa’s Poupee Produce ^^; but nonetheless, I’m inspired by those hats, they’re cute!

In exchange for my terribly long and rant-ful mails with my friend, Dori-chan, I drew this for her after one sudden thought of bunny ear knitted hats >w<

This is it~

Thanks Dori-chan, let’s usher the Rabbit year with a smile ~ 😀

and now the sketch as omake ^-~

Still around ^w^

Hey there, I’m still around. My exams start on Tuesday (Yeah, the coming Tuesday!! ww) and just wanted to post something I drew on a whiteboard and a black marker >w< It’s been a very long time since I posted something, not to mention something I drew. The last time I drew was a few doodles during my finals of a 70’s shoujo manga spoof, a young girl with a few fashion tips and a rough sketch of ‘the rational size of happiness’ (smiles)

You can click the photo for a bigger resolution of the photo, I always resize them in my blogs so that they will appear smaller than the size I usually take them ^^

I wonder what is the true size of happiness? (laughs)

New illustration!

I drew this today during my History test. I wanted to draw something close to Fullmetal Alchemist’s Olivier Mila Armstrong.

——
When I first saw her in the opening sequence of the 3rd (or 4th) opening theme song, I said “I want to be like her!”.

(I sound so much like a kid XD)

She’s beautiful and doesn’t need a man beside to get things done. Not to mention stronger than a man too ;D She holds on to her principles and she’s the type of woman that I want to be.
——

But I ended up with this.

I sound rather ungrateful but I’m happy I drew this. It never crossed me that I will draw something this beautiful ToT

Image0062<== Here’s the preview photo from my phone

I will continue my hard work as a person of art so please keep on supporting me (bows)

Note: A few photos that I took from my Cameron Highlands trip will be also be up within the next few posts.

First watercoloured drawing.

My first(ever!) drawing that I attempted to watercolour it. I doodled this character out of nowhere when I was waiting for my teacher to arrive.

I was stressed out when I need to hand-in a full 3 page essay on how to restore our country’s sporting glory so I just thought of colouring this and play around with it.

I never attempted this before but having a new small sized brush really helped with this watercoloured drawing.

I present you these photos!

That’s all for now! I’ve tests coming up next week with a 3-page essay due in the morning (I have yet to even start with the 2nd paragraph..) so I’ll be offline for a bit~

See you all next time!

Tie&Dye Series~ Part 1

Hi there! I will now show my Tie&Dye Series done by me~ I just did it on Friday so it’s the latest thing from me now.

If I could make it, I will probably put up some of my writings here, just for fun XD But none of them will ever have endings, since my head has a ‘my life hasn’t started so why write an ending for a story?’ thing, so in advance, sorry ._.

The colours used for this time (at least for these batch) were Ultramarine, Cobalt, Purple, Pink, Yellow, Lemon Yellow, Brilliant Red and White. The tissues were from Kimberly Clark’s Scott brand that were used in hotels.

I like to use the ones from here because of the durability of the tissues. Unlike the ones I use, facial tissues are too soft and absorbent for tie and dyes so if you put too much colour (as well as water) to it, when you want to open it up, it will tear. This is not the first time I did this but it has been since a few years since end of 2005. The photos of them will be posted up later.

I tried to fold the tissue differently so I would get different results from the poster colour painted on so everything wouldn’t be the same. I actually wanted to open up this piece but I decided not to. I thought it will be more attractive this way 🙂

Next will be… this! I added extra volume of water to make it look like it’s of watercolour. It’s different from the rest of the batch. All these has lighter tints to it but it came out nicely~

This one? I don’t really know what to say. What do you think?

This is つきの色 (Tsuki no Iro) or in English, Moon Colours. This was the last one that I made from the remaining colours I have on my palette which were Purple, Cobalt and a mixture of colours that I mixed from the leftover colours.

This piece is my favourite~

That’s all for now!

Something else…

I just doodled this just now and took a shot with a camera.

I started this with the eyes (so random -_-) that something just came out. Sorry about the blanks in the photo, it’s just I drew randomly so the paper contains some information that I can’t say.

That’s all for now, doesn’t the drawing looked like a yakuza that just got an idea? XD

じゃあ、またね!

More of my artwork~

Hi there! It’s been a while since I posted anything here but here are a few of my artwork, 1 from 2007 and 4 from 2008. Everything are drawn originally but sometimes certain aspects of the artwork is strongly inspired by some characteristics I want to see in my work 😀

This is the one from 2007, drawn when I was not really concentrating in (a few) my Moral Studies class. It doesn’t quite reflect my style but this drawing is completely inspired by Hiroki Yagami’s Dear Boys character, Mai Moritaka.

This one, hmm… I can’t really remember where this character come from but I got a feeling that it’s somehow based on somekind of series like Star Wars or SoltyRei’s Illumina.

Okay, this one is supposed to mimic a panel from a manga (or comic). But then, it’s all my own creation. It’s supposed to be a scary background when this female character meet the in-laws XD The setting is supposingly in another world. (Yeah I know, fantasy.)

Ah, this one. This was drawn when I was in school and and that period of time, I was just starting to read Kaichou wa Maid-sama! by Hiro Fujiwara so the hair for this character was made to look somewhere like that 🙂 The character is supposed to be getting angry at her escort since he was late.

So that’s all for now~
