The guardian of the night

Oh no, I did not drew a Batman.  That’s my Dear Darling’s thing. Superheroes are his thing. I drew random things and this is  the most recent one so far. Like a-week-ago recent. The owl was hand drawn with pencil on paper and the splashes were done using Illustrator CS6. I named this one “Hoot” because I’m so bad with naming things (like this title for example….Guardian of the night? how lame is that?).

Anyway the printed version of the blue owl will be available on T-shirts at Arttee Apparels‘s store soon.

What’s Arttee Apparels? Oh that’s another story to tell. Keep a look out for it, OK?*winks*.

Like my short update? I thought I should let you know that I’m very much alive and very very very pregnant (Opps… that too is another story to be told for another day).

*wink*

Paper 53

paper_by_fiftythree

Have you heard about Paper53 app from the apple appstore?

I’ve heard about it long before, but since my 1st gen of iPad cannot support the latest version of the said application, I never really had the chance to fully utilized it. And finally when the husband decided that he wanted an iPad mini for his birthday (from yours truly) and downloaded the app into it,  I’ve been hooked to it ever since. I even managed to persuade the dear darling into buying a stylus just because I wanted it for this app.

Here is  what I have achieved with it.

I have a few instagram videos of me using the app but I could not figure out how to embed the videos on to this post and (in away) kinda lazy too. So here is the link —- *click*

Happiness is just a one app purchased away (or in this case, a set of brushes/pen and a gradient tool which cost me 9USD) hehehehe

Still Alive and Kicking

I haven’t been abandoning this ship yet. Not that I’m planning to, dont worry. Anyway here are the sketches I did since my last update.

Told you I haven’t fall off the wagon. I am a firm believer of  “practice makes perfect”.

Ok that’s it. I dont have anything to talk about right now. I’m not really in the mood of sharing lately. I’m partly hormonal and partly emotional most of the time. But that is just me being a girl.

May you have an awesome day. Cheers.

Sketching it up to date

I splurged on watercolor pencils and I went crazy with it.image image image image image image imageimage imageimage image image

A Sketch A Day Project: over the long weekend

I picked the pencil and bought a new drawing pad. I think I’m all set to get back on track with my A Sketch A Day project. Nah.. I’m not going to even try to catch up with the number of days I’ve missed out. Too much pressure that will leads to Discouraged Napping. I need to stay positive. Unlucky for the husband, the way of me staying positive is by spending. But heyyyy.. whatever floats my boat. *winks*

On the greener side of the story, here are my successful little buds of herbs. 2 out of the 4 seed packs I bought finally came to life while the other two… well failed to make any appearance from day 1 . These are the Oregano and Thyme. Planted Thyme 7 days after Oregano hence the difference in the growing process. I got green fingers yaw’ll *shows fingers literally covered in green paints*

Turning pages.

I have been catching up with my reading. A lot of it. So far, I’ve finish reading “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” (I immediately watch the movie too right after reading the book and caught myself listening to the song Hero by The Wallflowers a lot), Life of Pi, Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson and currently reading Blink by Malcolm Gladwell. It’s part of my thirty before 30 list and while I’m in the mood of reading, why stop now?

Hence the very little time spent with pencil and papers. That and I am constantly on the move right now. Been packing in and out of my trusty leather brown suitcase for the past 2 weeks both for work and personal. But I did try to squeeze in some sketches whenever I get some time at the office or at home. Here are the “some” sketches.

No colors. Been planning to though. For the first 2. Planning of doing a sketch up with watercolor on a series of pin up girls. I drew them in a A2 sized 360gsm grained watercolor papers. Oh well. Every great thing starts with a plan, right? The last 2 were quick sketch ups at the office on A4 sized glitter card stock papers. Other than that, here is a peek of what my new project looks like. I’m transferring my doodles on sets of crockery with gold ink.

1 Set contains 6 of flat plates, smaller flat plates, half bowls and smaller bowls. All will be hand drawn with individual patterns.So no plates is the same. Now all I need to do is to bake these porcelains so the color stays.

I’ll be putting these babies out for auction later.

So till my next entry, I’m sending out millions of X’es and O’es your way. May you have a great day.

A Sketch A Day : Day 54

Been busting my ass to be good at this. I can now draw faces. Yupe quite confident with that area but not so much with  body proportions and movements. I know. I need to work on the patience and focus. Only then I’ll get it right.
