So, some of my friends! :) This is one of those rare pieces, in that I used watercolours for this. Been so long since I’ve touched traditional media. That being said, half of this is also done in Photoshop, so I guess there is that.
A friend, who likes pretty things. That being said, it’s been forever since I’ve done anything remotely resembling lineart, digitally. This references very slightly the Art Nouveau style, which I’ve been a fan of since I was in Secondary School.
I’m going to try to do a few different styles in the course of this art challenge, I hope I succeed! Cheers, everyone! :)
So I decided to do the 30 Day Challenge, which can be found here : http://sachinteng.tumblr.com/post/25810691828/go-west-young-man
Day 1: Yourself or Your Persona.
I’m a bit lacking in originality these days, so I just did a quick self-portrait, referring to a mirror. Not sure how accurate this is but my Grandpa said it looked like me, so there we go! My last name is Ham, so you have it there in the corner, haha.
Hey guys! I seriously need to take more WIP shots - always feel so sheepish when I upload these and I only have one WIP shot. : /
It’s been ages since I touched my tablet, really, and today I figured I’d stop reading so much fanfiction, and do something about my art block.
Jude has an almost textbook structure - his beauty is almost classical - Very much golden-ratio kind of proportions. Perhaps that’s why he lends himself so well for portraits and studies, if you don’t have an anatomical model to practice off. And well, he is Jude Law.
Do you guys have any favourite people to draw when you’re in a rut?
I do subject my friends to it, but the problem with that is if you’re not in their company you end up scouring Facebook for photos with nice lighting… Draw someone today, friends! Be it celebrity muse or just a friend whose face intrigues you! :)
Sketches while travelling on the bus and stuff. :) I periodically change my medium for my sketchbook and its been so long since I’ve used my pencil. This sweetheart has been with me since my primary school days, and I’ve been drawing with it ever since.
Hey guys! Been awhile since I’ve posted anything! After my grad show I’ve been kind of relaxing, and sticking mainly to just sketching when I travel about. Today my friend posted a prompt for an Art Jam on Facebook, and it was “your favourite character in your own style”. Well I recently re-watched Disney’s Mulan again!
Mulan is one of my favourite characters, especially when I was a kid. Being Chinese and a girl, as a kid I always wanted to be as badass as her! So I wanted to draw a ‘shuai ge’ (handsome guy?) Mulan! :D Not so sure if I’ve succeeded, but it was fun drawing her, and relaxing in its own way.
Fusion 13 was a fantastic event, our school booked a nice venue at Singapore’s F1 Pit Building, and everyone had a booth. That’s my booth right there! :D
It was the culmination of the past three years of my life, and I am immensely proud to be a part of this show, alongside many truly amazing artists/animators/friends. I’m so darn proud to be a part of Nanyang Polytechnic, and a part of SIDM. (School of Interactive and Digital Media)
My teachers and instructors from my time in Secondary School came down to visit and show their love/support, and it meant so much. I’m beyond grateful, for whatever combination of events and people that let me be here today. And for the truly wonderful, caring faculty of SIDM.
I’ve gained so much from this period, and learnt so much, not just as an artist, but I think as a person. I’m turning 20 soon, and truthfully, I’m a little daunted by what life has in store for me after this. But most of all I’m really, really happy. And terribly excited for life. :)
Continued painting my elf-lady a little more today. I’ve also included the model I was referring to - Sasha Luss. Abut halfway through the painting stopped resembling the model, but I decided to just go with it. This time it was a little bit more about trying to apply the stuff I’ve learnt so far.
As I’ve found, the underlying green tones really make the pink skintones look more… translucent, I guess. Spend about another half an hour - so I guess all in all this took me an hour? I guess I should take a few more WIP shots next time!
