"The Arrival" by Shaun Tan
If you don't know it go search it up right now
he is amazing
I use to go to the book store everyday and just stare at that book
now its mine! (muaha!)
Shaun Tan is my goal
I want to be as good as him!
but for now..
a photo that I took
following two creatures I made just for fun : 3
in2eternity: naw, the point is enjoying the process : D, thanks!
its summer! a whooping 33 degrees celsius
im learning the guitar recently...but thats off topic : P
practiced some anatomy
did a quick sketch of the library across the street
and failing at attempting to paint with watercolour
I love summer.
thought it was about time to take a break
after staring at reference pictures on the computer
i thought it would be good to go out and draw some real stuff
and it actually felt good
a good way to escape the heat in the city
didnt have time to do landscape pictures
so I drew a few plants and bugs
enjoyed the quietness alot
I think ill be doing this more often
YangMing mountain : )
Planning to improve greatly over the summer
someone once said to me that its important to find
another person with the same passion as yours
because it motivates both to improve and work consistantly
which is sad because my school only emphisizes on math and sciences
everyone is going for med school or economics : (
oh well. I'll motivate myself : P
ps. its a dying birdman : P just so you know
Looking good vivi!
Those studies are kicking major ass!
Another day up in the mountains
watercolour of trees
a sketch of my magician for teen challenge, but no story so thats as far as it'll get
and a sketch of my mum sketching : P
it scares me as I get older...because my skills don't seem to catch up
practice practice practice.
Wow those ink and watercolor studies have a really beautiful simplicity- very elegant. I like them a lot Keep up the good work- you're definitely on the right road!
i am very impressed! The watercolours are looking lovely, allthough i feel in the first and third one of your last post you could perhaps add some more values to make the illustrations pop out more (like you did with the 6th and 7th one)
Your teen challenges are looking great as well, i'm very impressed with the street magician
@Dreoilin - thanks alot : D
@Lav - Thanks! yeah I need to improve on contrast : /
been flipping through alot of water colour and concept art books for the past few days
looked through brian froud's artbook...jeesh = = I wonder if ill ever get there!!
yeah...time passes by fast better put the books down and do something with what I learned.
but for now...doodles!
Fantastic stuff here -- a lot of your watercolors remind me of Hayao Miyazaki's. Keep it up :p.
@Deadlyhazard-- thanks : ) Hayao Miyazaki is one of my favourite artists!
dispite getting a ticket fund for france, i cant afford the tuition fee = =
oh well perhaps next time : P
so work it is.
I got a job in a pizza shop for summer
after shooting ice everywhere with a blender
I'm getting the hang of it ="=
sooo, here's what I've been up to lately!!!
of my mum : P
and people on the MRT as usual
plus an entry for the yangming mtn illustration contest : P
the one up now is a WIP (obviously)
and some very basic stuff in water colour
thats all for now :3
@skMOP - thanks, its slowly coming along...been trying to colour my pictures lately
