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 ^-~

Showtime!!

I got a few photos of my work stashed away in my Facebook album, poor things D:

Finally, curtain call~ starts!

A desert scene or of the Wild West

Ahh, it’s Shiki, lovely Shiki~

A young lady (Italian?) is meeting her boyfriend’s parents.. The sketch of the body is well proportioned compared to my past drawings.

Ichigo—A ballerina in-training, actually drawn to be 4-6 years old but I made changes so she looks around eleven to twelve years old.

I wanted to draw a face filled with horror after watching her parents was murdered but I ended up drawing this young lady, leading her people to a new land of peace and productivity where they can prosper.

Ah, my admiration for this is unbelievable. I couldn’t believe that I drew this. I wanted to copy or re-adapt a sketch I made on a rough piece of paper into my sketch book but it ended with a strong-willed young girl, deciding her future to move along a new path. Strongly influenced by Aki Yoshino’s artwork.

I wanted to draw something for a contest in DeviantArt (in which the sketch on the rough piece of paper was involved…) I made another attempt to draw a warrior or somewhat rank in an online RPG world.

I hope it has the spirit of a warrior.

Last but not least, a little picture of a flower.

Painting #1

Hmm… Paintings. I made this particular piece a while back. I can’t remember exactly when but it was probably about 4 years ago.

I painted this in rage after my father decided something on his own without asking what are my opinions. I remember that I wanted to do a strong tornado with whites and gray colours but I ended up using bright colours which are used in this piece.

I present to you this little piece of art I did a long time ago.

P.S I did feel better after finishing this, in fact, I felt great and content after finishing this painting.

Notes: This painting is painted on a big sized sketch book, the paper is 135gms thick and I used poster colours for this painting.

A few stuff from the past =)

Hey there, it’s finally November. My finals are currently ongoing and there’s another 2 weeks before my finals finish. So, this post will be showing some stuff that I did back then. Some of them are from last year’s while some maybe probably from 2-3 years back.

Okay, first in queue would be this. I drew this together with the one of the artwork in my second artwork post in this blog.

This was suppose to mimic one of the times where the character sprouts horns and being mischievious XD I didn’t manage to draw the rest. This was from 2008.

Maybe, I’ll add more here later?

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~
