Hopeful



The Last Match...


I've always wanted to draw The Little Match Girl. That last match just breaks my heart. She was so hopeful. Why didn't anyone buy her matches!!! argggh~ I don't know if I really did her justice here. I think my original sketch was better. I might try again and draw a nicer picture of her one of these days.

So many things happened in the last 2 months that leaves me feeling a little strange. I went on a trip. In Japan, I met up with FSc whom I haven't seen in a few years. It was nice to catch up with her. I met Fujijun for the first time through FSc too. She's so awesome. I really love her artworks. Then I went to Thailand. I was quite busy with work while I was away, so it didn't really feel like a vacation. It felt more like working away from home. I ended up having to go to Denmark for work in the middle of my Thailand trip, then back to Thailand again. I found a stray kitten that I decided to bring back to the states. My dad passed away, but I'm glad I got to see him right before he passed away. I was busy with the funeral and also super busy with work. Then on the way back I caught a cold and was super sick on the plane ride home. I have to fly back for the kitten because he was sick and ended up getting his vaccines late. Lastly, I'm going to move to Denmark in 2 months for work. I've been freelancing for over 10 years. It will be strange to be working in an office, but it's a wonderful opportunity and I still get to draw and design.

Lion, Bear, Tiger

Inspired to draw the Lion, the Bear, and the Tiger.

Leo, Baloo, and Shere Khan

Here is the background story about trio if you guys are interested "Baloo, Leo, & Shere Khan Story"

They are always looking for donations because it costs $33,000 per month to take care of those animals. If you have a few dollars to spare, anything helps :).

Life Drawing sketches 2



More life drawing sketches. By the way, you can use the arrow keys on the keyboard to navigate the sketches. I think it's easier than clicking. Hmm... does anyone ever even check this blog? I wonder lol.

Life Drawing sketches 1



I know that I don't post her often enough, but it's not because I'm not drawing. I'm actually really drawing everyday. I'm just too lazy to take pictures and post them. ^^; I'm taking life drawing classes and I do a lot of quick sketches from models. It's interesting because for me, it's always easier to draw from my imagination than to draw from a model. I think I've gotten better at it though. Here are some sketches from life drawing sessions. Most of them are between 3-8 minutes.

Mirai

Fanart of Mirai (Mascot from Culture Japan). It started out as a doodle and then I kind of got into the drawing since it's fun to paint the lighting etc. Also orange is such a pretty color! Anyways, it's for a contest. You win a Nendoroid. I think I might be too late though since Japan time and US time is different and it's a Pixiv contest which is probably Japan time. Oh well, it was fun anyways.

I had an art block. I really wanted to draw a nice detailed illustration, but nothing came out nice. Then, I was trying to do work, but I got stuck. In the end, I just decided to sit and doodle cute things instead and I still couldn't think of anything to draw except cats lol. Well there's also a ghost.
