I shouldn’t be doing this instead of my assignments I know *guilty guilty*
Anyways, this one is definitely a new experience for me since I’m not friendly with colors. However, lately I seem to be a bit bolder, especially because it’s digital I can just erase and redo. I think my interest in watercolor and extensive practice with it (still bad tho) also help a bit. Have to thank Mr Woon Lam for that…
Ok… Time to sleep and… tomorrow will back get back to serious work.
This blog has been forgotten for awhile and I feel sorry but… time is something I lack right now…
Wish I had time to catch up with life outside school but that too has to wait *sigh*
Had a long and big smile when drawing this LOL…Thanks to Milla… Even tho it didn’t really look like you and the smile is not as great as yours, count the effort! ^^ ❤
See you all again soon!!
I had a regret today and it troubled me too much I decided to write something. And it’s just about time I posted my just finished drawing. So… I got myself another thing to put on my portfolio… although I’m not too happy this time.
I do think I lose myself in the details (I know one of my profs will not like it, others won’t care, I guess). At least I let go a bit at the end. Such improvement!
I often find it hard to explain to others what the story about most of the stuffs I’ve made. I’m not communicative… I really wanna say it’s just something that I wanted to draw… For instance, I’ve always wanted to draw angels but never really succeeded. So in this drawing, I eventually incorporated some little cute angels, even if it means changing the concept totally.
Honestly, in the original idea I intended some suspense. “Somebody” discovered the little girl sleeping in the jungle? Does it sound promising? Will keep it for next time.
Anyways, that wasn’t unexpected of me, I change my mind often during the process. I’m trying to change my indecisiveness though.
Hmmm, imao this drawing can go well with a fairytale, no? Maybe I should do illustrations for those fairy tales I used to love too much.

p/s: writing seems helpful… was so depressed just minutes ago 🙂
It’s hard to think of a title when I draw without a certain concept… so yeah, will give it a name when I got the feel for it. (or someone can give me a suggestion too, appreciate it ^^)
Took me two days… quite slow, I know… but I’m quite satisfied with the result. Really worth my weekend.
It’s also the first thing I’ve completed on Wacom Cintiq (wooohoo thanks a lot to whoever gave my school the money to buy those amazing stuffs heheh 🙂 )
Well, when I started this drawing, I knew for sure I want it to be in black and white and have the look of an ink painting… (I love illustrations in books about Middle-ages by the way).
I wanted to give it a moody atmosphere, even horror if possible… I began to lose track of my concept when an urge to change the frame to a more extreme shape. I’d love to have a girl on top of the ladder and I got several ideas of the positions and poses. Thus it took me a bit longer to decide. I’m glad it’s done pretty okay.
So about the story, I kept in my mind an image of a guy meeting a girl in a strange place, the cat being the link between them. Originally, it’s inspired by a story I’m writing (for fun), in which, the street cat follows the girl to the guy’s parents’ house where she’s squatting but they never talk due to some misunderstandings. Later, thanks to the cat, both of them got to understand each other more… but in case you wonder, they never get together as a couple. It’s meant to be a tragic story for the guy especially. He discovered her being his half-sister after falling deeply in love with her. Well, tragic enough?
Lastly, the first week of year 3 in college turned out to be more exhausting than I thought. But will try to create Untitle No.2 within next weekend.
Haaaaa, thank you (who stops by and reads my rambling). Good night and bye for now!
