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

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.

A Sketch A Day : Day 53

Finally we’re back on track with the numbering. It has been day number 80 today (yeah I used the calculator) though and I only have 53 days worth of sketches (including this one). Which means I have a gap of another 27 sketches to do in order to keep up. Fuh!

Did something out of my comfort zone and I’m got impatient towards the end. So what’s next?

A Sketch A Day : Today

I know. I know. I’ll get the day numbered. Later. Anyway, it’s obvious I was not in the right mood yesterday and can be seen on my previous sketch. I even rant on how I dread to draw hair on my Instagram and a friend suggested that I draw a hijab clad lady instead. So I drew her.

This pretty lady is Wan Effina Wan Rahim. A darling friend of mine all the way back  from college. I hope I did justice to her pretty face.

A Sketch A Day : Day uncounted.

I’ll get the day numbered back on track later. For now, here’s for today, my Indian princess.410383784306568810_5922842 410405865555521518_5922842 410415508377857178_5922842

A Sketchy update

A Sketch A Day project is still up and running. The only thing missing is the date number. I lost count. Cheers.
