I went to the Embracing Canada exhibition last week - it's been a while since I stepped into a museum! Always a geek for good environment art. Here are some a couple of drawn there and random faces. Feedback: Vancouver Art Gallery, please let us bring our bags into the gallery. Some of us just wanna draw/paint and we have clunky stuff XD
This has been a difficult exercise! Here we go.
Yes, and shape up in all aspects: physically/intellectually/artistically. I exercised today, first time this year! Attended a philosophers' cafe session. Drew more. It's time to get healthy again. In other news, I managed to only do a couple exercises this round.
Okay, composition is way off after placing it side by side. Must be tired. Body is in pain but I shall persevere! Goodnight :)
Hello friends! I have recovered but currently at about 85%. Did a few exercises today, learning value and clarity and such. Science!
Have a good week!
...and I am sick! Apologies for the missing post on Wednesday. I still feel horrible, it's been a while since i felt this awful. Feels like art is having a slow start this year. >.< Anyway, Dr. Sketchy was fun! It's been a while since I went to life drawing (probably more than 3 years ago? o.o).
I will be on a thought vacation from Christmas to next year.
The usual art updates will resume on the first Wednesday of 2016. Super!!! Take care now, bye bye then.
My one hour studies have become half an hour studies :P That said, I think I am done with paperwork for the most part. Fingers crossed there won't be more coming. The problems of being an adult :)
I think my colors are getting a wee bit closer but darn, it does need more clarity.
Have a good week!
I've spent most nights just doing paper work lately. This whole year has been a year of paper work lol. Didn't manage to paint the past two days but I squeezed in a couple of thumbnails tonight.
I am also secretly envious of people who make these one hour studies so pretty :P I guess it's gonna take me a lot more time before I am really comfortable with color and edges. Keep on trekking, my friends!
(If you get the reference, we're immediate friends) A couple of studies today. These go by the one hour rule, and I've obviously failed. Second one looks better than the first though. It's difficult to provide clarity but I'll try my best. I'm going to do a couple of studies everyday for a week to see where I can go with it.
Have a good week.
Huge thanks to the wonderful IE team coming up with an amazing Christmas party! It's probably the party that I had the most fun in, 5 years in VFX. I love the consistent small company feel even as our numbers begin to grow.
More pictures here. As we're coming close to the end of 2015, it's just surprising how fast this year passes. I guess time does fly when we're having fun! Have a great rest of the week :)
Quick watercolors for today. Don't wanna waste the paints I've bought recently :P Skype sessions with my partner in science is still something I treasure. Thank you, Skype.
Had tons of fun with the IE Christmas party yesterday! Staying 5 hours in a party is definitely a record breaker for an introvert like me. :) Heading out for the Rascal Art Event soon, do drop by if you're free! Hope your weekend is awesome too!
I somehow need 10 hours of sleep instead of my usual 5. The lack of sunlight totally messes up my circadian rhythm!
Anyway, this master study is as much as I can push it to. Hope your mid week has been good :)
Yay more color studies from masters D: Learned quite a bit when I'm picking colors. I've decided to upload more stuff (and maybe work a little harder) so expect updates every Wednesday and Saturday now! :)
Have a fruitful weekend my art friends!
(Okay that was lame.) Apologies for the missing update last week. I swear I wanted to post but for some reason Squarespace was down. I'm back!
In any case, I will be part of a collection of artist for the Rascal Art Event which will be happening on 5th Dec 2015! If you happen to be in town (Vancouver), please drop by for the event! My 3 photography pieces will be for sale if you're interested.
I have been learning how to pick colors/values lately, learning from the old masters. Need to train my eyes better. Also, need more time! :P My partner in science made me date my work, so I could see improvement, if any. Probably gonna take a lot more years though! Just keep swimming, just keep swimming...
Have a great weekend!
For the week! Trying to get used to learning composition again. >.< (And Happy belated International Self Portrait Day!) Have a great week!
YES! Finally Halloween for the first time in North America so I need to dress up to fit into the culture. :P Sadly I'm too old to go trick or treating but I definitely had fun being Sadako for IE's party. All picture taken by/credits to Yosuke/Emily/Jayzica, my dear friends at work.
See, those panda eyes aren't useless after all! I don't even need makeup. :D And the costume above made by a colleague is awesome! Have a great start of November, people!
Happy belated Halloween/November! I shall update more pictures of Halloween next but this is all of INKtober's drawings. I haven't got me a scanner yet, sorry for the crappy camera pictures!
For no particular reason, today is filled with ABBA songs! (Some people must be cringing now.)
♫Waterloo - Knowing my fate is to be with you
Waterloo - Finally facing my Waterloo♫
Thanks for the terrible taste in music, mum! :P
Anyway, couple of matte paintings for this week. Need to exercise my brain further, I'm a little out of practice :)
Have a good rest of Sunday and week!
Spent all weekend fine-tuning life/files/websites >.< Messed with the layout a bit on this one so that it would serve me better. Also, I had a collection of images so I've created a new website to put them.
Stay curious. シ
(for the Canadians!) Hooray render render follow tutorial render render. INKtober drawings are getting more ridiculous. But yay! This turned out decent. I need to learn how to consciously paint.
Hope your long holiday has been good to you :)
