Maybe better with a little more attitude?

I don't smoke. I dislike cigarettes smell and too much incense kind of give me a headache. However, I always like to stare at the smoke whenever an incense is lit. it looks so cool >_<. Most of the artists that I know can draw smoke very well. I'm actually not very good at it, but hmm after this maybe I should practice, so I can draw them well too lol.

*I thought it'd look more interesting if she looks as if she's about to say something like "Don't mess with me, darling~" lol. Hence, the 2nd version.

Plip's history

Plips are white little birds that I drew on a poster in 2004. Most of the people that saw or bought those posters always said that they liked the birds the most. I used to think it's so funny because I spent so much time on the rest of the poster, but almost everyone commented on the birds first.
See the white birds in the back?

... so I made a mini sculpture when I was bored.

About two years later, I was thinking of making them into plushes. Sadly at the time, I really didn't know where to go look for a good plush making company etc etc. I still did made some designs for them in the end. I've never post this before. it's very unlikely that these will ever be made now, so here's what the designs look like. I played around with different wings design, but still tried to keep it simple. I still don't know which style one I'd have chosen in the end. I even designed the packaging. They were to be sold in little cardboard cages that's easily popped up and assembled at the booth. Isn't that cute? :p
Can't decide

Palm size

Rough Package idea

Last year, I brought Plips back as little flipbook notepads. They're in Vuduberi's Etsy shop * Plip's animated notepad* This one trying to learn how to fly :) Here are some sketches and mock ups.

Sadly, Plips were never made into plushes :(. However last year, I did end up designing Pygmy Penguins, and those were made into plushes. There were 1000 of them, and they're almost all sold out! :) Say hello to my Pygmy Penguins:

The end <3

I just got a Tumblr account. At the moment, I like it even more than blogger for posting artworks. I really like the thumbnails gallery that it generates for the archive. It's so sexy <3 Check it out!!!

Sketch - Squiggly Masked thing

Pushing the figure. The background looked empty so I filled it up with weird stuff.

more "IN MY POCKET" toys

More old works from "IN MY POCKET" toy line by MEG ("PUPPY", "KITTY", and "PONY").  I designed these mini figurine toys a while back. It's so cool to see them in toy stores all over the world.  I actually saw some of them in a toy store in Italy when I went to visit there. Mondo TV in Italy made an animation out of the Puppy line.  Last I heard, they've sold over 200 million toys, so I'm glad that they are popular and kids liked the way they look :).   Here are some of the toys, not everything because this is already long enough lol. People do like the puppies and always asked me to show more though. It's fun to try to find your favorite breed.



I also worked on a Lego project, but it's not out yet, so that one is still confidential.   I think the designs are super great. Lego team was extremely nice <3. I shall post stuff up after they toys are released :).

Angry & Troll

Some pages from my sketchbook recently.

Alan came to visit, so we went to Royal-T cafe. He was working on his laptop (programming), and I was drawing in my sketchbook. I tend to draw either happy or sad faces, so I wanted to try playing around with angry expressions, but it ended up being playful anyways lol. As I was drawing the picture below, I asked Alan:
Me: Hey~ What kind of sword is good for hacking off people's ... um.. head?"
*looks up because the waitress happened to be at our table to ask if we'd like anything else.
I think I scared her slightly.
Him: A machet is good. *back to programming*
Off with your head!

Angry moments

And he said I'm a troll! I'm not a troll! I've never really drawn an ugly troll either, so I tried. I don't think he's all that ugly though. Maybe I should've added some warts and made his face more warped @_@.. oh well~ The next conversation went like this:
Me: What does a troll look like?
Him: You.
Me: *blink blink* D:

Life Drawing

We had a very good model yesterday named Sara. She's very pretty and I loved her poses. I hope we get her as our model again.

Glenn was telling me to take the challenge and try doing the big perspective drawing *gulp*. I tried. lol

Life Drawing

Drawings from live models. I'm taking an Anatomy class with Glenn Vilppu. He's so funny and has a very very cute personality :). It's been very fun.
