Hey guys, here’s a rough sketch of Ben Whishaw as Q, from the James Bond movie Skyfall. I usually don’t do fanart but this image has been bouncing about in my head for a little while so I did a little sketch, and I figured it wouldn’t be too bad to post it up.
Some days I get to worked up about doing a nice drawing and get frustrated, which is counterproductive to making art, I find. Keeping it loose and drawing things that make you happy also serves as a good break. :)

A bit of face/skintone practice today. I’m guilty of often only drawing/painting lighter skinned/asian people simply because I’m familiar with the colours used to get a decent look for the skin, so I figured it’d be good to try/learn something new, this time!

More sketches! Been trying my best to fill up my sketchbook so I’ve got nicer things to submit to universities. I’m currently trying to branch out a bit more and try incorporating more natural elements into my personal sketches and art. These days I’ve been obsessed with birds, and also been getting some good use out of my little watercolour set, which is great when I’m out cafe drawing.

I really like going out to draw in public places because the feeling of a bustling place with a cuppa hot tea makes me feel really relaxed. I hope everyone will have a great, sketch-filled month ahead! 

Hey everyone! I recently went on a short holiday to Thailand with my parents and had a great time! It’s a beautiful place, with incredibly pleasant people and a lot of visual inspiration to be had! If you’ve ever wanted to go, please do! 

Yet another google hangout party with the friends! T’was nice to meet new people and draw together. The last piece is a fanart of ivan's character, which is seriously cute. 

Till next time, everybody! Make love and art and anything you want! :) 

Summer! Summer! Gosh, the only thing Summery in singapore right now is the heat! It’s humid and rainy, too. I want to go to some faraway beach and feel wonderful. That being said I guess the closest thing I can get to a beach fantasy holiday is drawing it. 

Wherever you are, have a beautiful few weeks till summer (wherever you are) ends! I’m not too sure, ‘cause it’s always warm here in the tropics.

Today I joined an online doodle party with shermaine

and chopsticksroad, my schoolmates! Pretty fun stuff, and all their drawings are super cute! Do check them out if you’ve got a taste for adorable, colourful designs and characters. :) 

Hey guys, it’s been quite a while since my last post. I haven’t been doing much painting, but I have been doing quite a bit of sketching. I’m currently applying for University, working on a freelance basis and doing a lot of cafe drawings. Without a regular schedule I do tend to get a little depressed and lost in my thoughts, but drawings affords me a peace that I can’t seem to find anywhere else. I’ve been drawing at the Starbucks in Nex Mall in Singapore recently when the mood strikes. 

I’m working on an album cover for a client (which is going to be pretty fun), a little personal painting, and a project I’m starting with a friend. With luck, effort and time, there’ll be cool things to come! :) Thank you for reading! <3 

So I&#8217;ve been working part-time at a PC show for the past few days, doing sales at a WACOM booth, selling tablets, and demo-ing drawing/painting on the (beautiful) cintiq.
I get to draw mostly anything as long as it draws the attention of a crowd (in a good way!) while at work, so it&#8217;s pretty cool. This was done over a few hours on the Cintiq 24 inch, with Photoshop Elements.

Hello. Just another short one today, it seems. Just a little thing to de-stress. On a side note, I’ve been making a slightly more conscious effort to be happier, these days. I’m not sure if its working, but I’ve been turning to art as some sort of relief-inducing past time, so I guess there’s a good outcome there. :) 

Good vibes and well wishes to all! :) 

When my brain gets really cluttered and I&#8217;m not feeling too good about life, I find that letting my pencil loose over paper is really cathartic. I kind of zone out a little, and after I&#8217;m done and sit back, I feel just that bit better.

Hey everyone! It&#8217;s been a long time! After a relatively dry spell, inspiration (or rather, an urge to do something more than an hour-long) hit me, so I&#8217;ve been working on this for a bit.
Fanart of the lovely Dany Targaryen! Again, more Mucha-inspired stuff, but I thought it&#8217;d be pretty fitting for Dany&#8217;s image! Had a bit of difficulty with this one, but all in all I&#8217;m pretty happy! Done for a Art prompt on Facebook. :) Cheers, everybody!
