It's been a while. Oops. Nope, I'm not here to post the finished version of Katsuya's birthday piece because I forgot about it OTL. I didn't really get to touch my Pshop much during the previous semester since I was doing presentation after presentation, and writing paper after paper. Surprisingly hectic for a semester I'd originally planned to be "relaxing". Figures huh? At least I managed to pull my CAP up by quite a bit~ :D It was only after the end of my semester did I have time to fiddle around with the program, courtesy of Beck who suggested the idea of a redeemable e-voucher for Karrot's birthday. :D And since well, me being the incredibly lazy and uncreative one, Beck supplied the general concept and idea, and left me to the freedom to do up my own design.

Because why give e-cards when you can give an e-voucher? )

Another thing I managed to do before the move was create an original character for Marvel's X-men~ I've toyed with the idea for a while now, and since I didn't feel like drawing any fanart (especially after not touching my tablet proper in nearly half a year), why not do something different for once?

The one-stop for the absurd and insane )

On another note, I don't think I've mentioned it here but I agreed to contribute a fanfic in January or so to my club's Hetalia Anthology project alongside [livejournal.com profile] daemon_angelus and [livejournal.com profile] bulletthestars for our upcoming Minnacon event. Several reasons for me taking up the offer at that time: I honestly thought it would be a much less frantic semester than my previous ones, it was a good way to finally give myself an excuse to finally write a Hetalia fic, and I felt bad rejecting the offer since I was an obvious choice and they needed one more person to pair everyone up. After an hour or two of animated discussion, we sort of came up with the general concept for the book before each of us had to leave for dinner and whatnot. The lack of updates subsequently made it fade from my memory, until received a text enquiring about my progress when I was in Melaka for a road trip did it come back to me. Although I was incredibly peeved at the last minute sending of details and lack of communication to reinforce that the project was still ongoing, my artist and I managed to pull through with a sliver to spare. Thankfully I'd crystalized the general concept much earlier in the semester during a casual dinner cum drinking night with [livejournal.com profile] picseanenigma, so at least I had a vague framework to work with when the deadline drew uncomfortably near (especially since I could only do it after I returned from my trip and I wasn't really willing to let work invade my short timeout). After numerous all-nighters of painfully squeezing words out since I'd already filled the days of my week prior to my trip, I finally finished it! Got some of my lovely friends to read and edit it for me during the last day before final submission, and thanks to them the unpolished rock is now a bit closer to becoming a small little gem. :D I'll rave and rant more about this after the event (which is also when I'll post it up on my other LJ and my other writing portals), so for now, I'm more than happy to just use my free time to laze around on my bed with my laptop~ I'll probably work on the long overdue profile graphic thing for my writing LJ in anticipation of the event too~

Until post-Minnacon or something! (Wow, this is a long post huh? xD)

So I'm currently putting off 3 mid-terms to revise for and 2 essays. What for? To sketch. (I know, my priorities.) Admittedly it was my own fault when I decided to browse through AO3 for puppyshipping fics at the oh-so-early hours of 2am a couple of nights ago. :D While I regret it on hindsight, it did drastically improve my mood from the suicidal rage I was habouring for the week before that. What I didn't anticipate for the urge to draw after (probably because my favourite non-pixiv puppyshipping artist is now on Tumblr, and manages the best ask Tumblr ever. I'd buy her artbook if she releases one, seriously. *3*), which I only got to yesterday since I was painfully trying to plan my assignment while fighting puppyshipping thoughts xD. /is fail.

Surprisingly quick, given that it's coloured~

Naturally I wanted to draw our little puppy and his master :P~ Obviously not interacting, because I was wayyy too lazy to reference, and also because my bro was in my room and ummm, I'd rather not risk it :X. I still have a long way to go before I can sketch quickly and confidently, but seeing how this one was done in the same spirit without references (ignoring my need to double check the hair styles for my babies T_T), I'm rather pleased :D. Didn't have time to change the proportions and whatnot, but it still looks... Decent I hope? Still rather awkward with poses, but meh, that comes with experience and planning before sketching :X. (E.g. Sanzo was supposed to be in a different setting, with his hand pushing against a shelf/cabinet/ceiling. X_X) Also, I think my original suspicion of being able to draw animals better than humans still stands. /points to Neopets sketches from before and the little puppy now.

Decided to colour the sketches once I was done, because I didn't feel satisfied after speed sketching. Also because colouring is a lot more fun :D~ (And to think I used to hate colouring my works...) Tried to be a little bolder with face shading (I need to look at the bone structure of guys more ><) after the feedback I've gotten from previous drawings, no sure if it's more visible now but meh, baby steps! And I think because of that, the skin tones all look the same ._.;;. Katsuya's supposed to be the most tanned with pink undertones, while Sanzo's and Seto's have yellow undertones, with the latter being the fairest...

I didn't realise the colour scheme for all three of them are so similar. ._. Katsuya's jacket is from the first one/two arcs of DM, Sanzo's outfit is his usual, and Seto's was randomly conjured up by yours truly. I wanted to go the usual white/blue for Seto, but a white trench is a pain to shade, and dark blue is one of my favourite colours to use in art/graphics~ Almost drew a golden retriever instead of a terrier, but decided Seto's more of a small dog/puppy kinda guy (no seriously, not just because of my OTP xD). He won't appreciate a bigger dog jumping (on) him (hehe), but he'll probably have a soft spot for smaller dogs that he can cuddle while working on his laptop. (Come on, even Sanzo has a soft spot for kittens!) Wanted to draw an autumn/winter scene for Seto too but bleh, ran out of time. :/ So the hand in his pocket is deliberate ><, just looks incredibly weird without the right setting. Oh, and Seto's name is supposed to read 海马濑人, not 濑人海马. OTL I'm just so used to saying Seto Kaiba as opposed to Kaiba Seto...

Hopefully this will satiate my drawing urges until post finals. It's nonstop epic workload until the end of the term for me. The joys of being a third year college student I swear. /slams head on desk.

Oh wow, 3 months just flew by like that. -.-;; I barely feel rested mein gott. Doesn't help that my first presentation is in a week and assignments are going to start piling up... /nervous gulps. So much for being more creative during the hols huh? In my defence, I didn't bring my tablet to China and honestly, I don't think the environment there nurtures any potential budding creative sparks at all. To make up for not touching my tablet in ages (I'm not even going to think of when was the last time I actually wrote anything), here're a couple of doodles I rushed in the past couple of weeks~

Olympics fever~

Warning: Long rant! I nearly forgot the Olympics was this month (I did however, remember it was taking place this year haha), but as usual, I didn't really bother much with it because 1) swimming is most fun when you are competing, not watching 2) they don't have karate 3) taekwando was surprisingly boring 4) equestrian made me wanna fly back to see my horse and go riding again. One event I was looking forward to however, was artistics gymnastics. I've always admired the strength, dexterity and elegance of the gymnasts as they constantly pushed the limits of the human body. My enthusiasm spiked in 2008 when I first saw Kohei Uchimura, a Japanese male gymnast with such elegance and precision, he makes even rings and pommel look effortless. I'd go on and ramble about how his determination and calm is an inspiration to us all but meh, let's leave that for when the interested speak to me in person yea? Anyway, the drawing is not of Kohei, but of another gymnast, Philipp Boy of Germany. I first noticed him in the world championships a couple of years back for his ambitious moves, infectious enthusiasm and lovely sportsmanship. 2011 WC was a particularly deterministic moment of his career as he snatched 2nd placing in all-around, breaking the otherwise G/S Japan sweep. He's sincere enough with his congratulations, humble enough to entertain the reporters, and grounded enough to continue with what he loves: gym and running cafes (he owns two! :D). I guess it was this relatability alongside his amazing skills that made me follow his journey more closely, so it was a heartbreak for me when he performed so poorly at the qualifiers. I'm just disappointed that he is unable to show the world his true talent in the sport (although congratulations to his lazy teammate, Marcel Nyugen, who snagged a Silver all-around!), and given his age, he may not even get a chance at the next Olympics DDD':. So that's why I decided to doodle him from memory instead of Kohei (who saved his reputation by breezing through all-arounds, taking his 4th straight all-around gold~), because he deserves so much more respect for his talent D:. /ends rant

Wanted to try a more dynamic pose than my usual face-forward poses xD. Sketched from memory, coloured at the last minute to see if I can flub a background. I'm quite sure the pommel horse is taller and wider but meh, /scraps. xD


No lengthy fangirl rave this time I swear ><. Decided to doodle while waiting for the rest of the Biz girls to send over some stuff, and ended up with a random OC who looks kinda... Hipster. ._. That was not my original intent I swear! I just wanted to do nice slightly messy hair, some drapey stuff, and simple clothes. Apparently when put together, my mind came up with that. -.-;; Careless colouring, uncleaned lines and a lazy background because I didn't feel like drawing anything else once I was done :P.

Realism Rose, Mel style!

One last item before I finish up this entry~ I was randomly sketching nonsense while watching the Olympics reruns when my bro stopped and commented, "Your drawings are too cartoony." While yes, they are because I'm quite terrible at drawing still, I don't like such facts being said in my face when I'm currently drawing. So I told him I'll draw something semi-realistic for him; end result is the 'rose' you see above! :D Took me 3 minutes or so, and while it isn't true realism, it was enough to shut my bro up. -.-;;; Randomly 'zomg-cool brushes all over!!!!' it, and it ended up like this. :D And nope, not even gonna try salvage it. /lazy

I wish I drew more during the holidays but argh, it's uni year 3 so I can't afford to waste time on the more frivolous. /sigh Until whenever! D':

Crunch time starts again from tomorrow onwards until summer hols. /gulps. So here's a quick update on a couple of items I managed to squeeze out since I last posted!



Yes, that creature I drew is yours truly! Except much thinner. Did it last month for a Tumblr 'activity'; actually just a random post which said draw myself in my current position and outfit. Thankfully I was that unglamourous at that moment and I felt an urge to draw so here we go! And yes, my chin was supposed to be tucked into my collar bone while I'm slouched into my seat. Yes, I've a really bad posture :D. Hair's slightly more brown than usual since I'm still trying to grow my highlights out and yes, those are eyebags :D. Big eyebags.

Other item was an icon/logo created yesterday for a friend who needed something for a mixed martial arts meet~ (If I assume right, it should be hosted by NUS Muay Thai Club) She specifically asked for a white orchid with a drop of blood on it so here it is!



It's more purple than white but hey, that's the only way to do highlights unless I wanted proper non-vector art (then I'll go for blue or grey). Was too lazy to clear the white outlines inbetween so I told her to either get the person who's adding the logo to either use a white background or the multiply/magic eraser tool to clean it up :P. To make things slightly easier, I did one with a black outline too xD. Not too bad since it's vectored in pshop with only the main shadings airbrushed on.

Am currently working on a drawing (Le gasp! Really!) which should hopefully be done later tonight or tomorrow :3. Just in time too since I've so much due in the next 2 weeks. ._.

/goes off to draw. Oops.

EDIT: Omg! 100th post! :'D

So here's a quick post to show that I've not succumbed to the relentless assault of projects, presentations and papers. Mum's birthday was a couple of days ago, and me being the bum I am only managed to finish her card and get her gift several days after. In my defence, I was sick in bed thanks to an asthma relapse which was further exacerbated by fever. Perfect way to start the lunar new year eh? :D Story of my life.

Behold inaccurate anatomy and oddly shaped squiggles!


Here's a hastily sketched picture inspired by a deviantart piece! It's supposed to incorporate the element of water (Aquarius) in the design but since I didn't ink it properly, it looks like a wonderful mess! :D Thus I suggest viewing it from a distance to create an illusion that it is complex yet well drawn. The reason why I didn't mind doing a slipshod job on this was because the highlight of her gift was the earrings my bro and I got her, not the card. The card's more for tradition's sake... Which is still going strong even after nearly 15 years! :D

Back to my mountain of work! :D Such is a life of a university student...

Goodness, I didn't even realise it was nearing the end of the year @_@. Time sure flies doesn't it? It's the dawn of another semester of pure torture. /shot Anyway, a very belated Merry Christmas to all of you (because I was being a bum during the holidays and used my trip as an excuse to not do anything productive) and a Happy (Potentially Last) New Year! (I doubt I'll post here in a while xD.)

On a completely unrelated note, I did do some half-hearted graphics for one of my presentations last semester (although thanks to my friend's laptop not being able to properly fuse them into the template, they were at the last minute abandoned, much to my chagrin). The frustration was partially because of the narcissist in me and also the fact that I specifically extracted a couple of hours upon my group’s request to do up something ‘special’ to kill the entire class’ bell curve (which thankfully, we did). Did I mention those hours were originally meant for me to catch up on my homework (which I later pulled 3 all nighters to complete)?

Here is the 2 minutes menu (vegetables stolen by my friend from goodness knows where; comment if you know and I’ll gladly credit; EDIT: I only did up the background. Sent it to another group mate who added everything else in...) and the original template [1] [2] [3]. Not hand annotated because I originally wanted to do this post in Shanghai. To provide some context, our group's proposed business venture was that of a vegetarian fast casual restaurant /cue laughter from all my friends. (The) Beanstalk was my first attempt at drawing a… ‘Plant’. Not sure how much of a fail it was… Logo was rushed in 2 minutes or so too (I really couldn’t be bothered with something nice since it was for a single presentation and report only). I’m going to leave this portion of the post here because thinking about the module more drives me absolutely insane with rage at an idiotic group mate.

Putting that horrendous experience behind us, the CAS newsletter is coming! (It was originally supposed to be a Christmas edition but due to lack of content and late submissions… /coughs) Was in charge of 2 ‘articles’ this time, in which I ranted quite a fair bit for the AFA one (didn’t have much time to edit it although I did get some feedback for it for… Tone adjustment. Opps.) hopefully in not too sarcastic a tone. The other was for Cosfest which I’d originally just wanted to take the easy way out and send a pile of photos over with lame captions and let Productions handle the rest. Since I was in such good spirits (not to mention I felt sorry for the newsletter team), I decided to do something a little… Different :D.



You get cookies if you can guess who is whom! :D It’s quite a stark difference from the article I wrote (so people will probably wonder if they are indeed written/created by the same person) but hopefully, worth the time I spent on it. Did I mention since I changed my mind at the last minute, I rushed the entire thing out on the day I was flying off to Shanghai? /cue applause. I nearly made it too! I had to spend another 15 minutes in the hotel realigning everything, double checking grammar etc before I sent it off though xD. So yea, I’m famous for doing last minute work because I’m actually good at it. Oh, did I also mention [livejournal.com profile] daemon_angelus has 2 articles in the upcoming newsletter too? :Db So if you want to find out who the mysterious blacked out figures are, or if you are a fan of [livejournal.com profile] daemon_angelus' works, stay tuned for it! (I might post a link to the newsletter here xD~)

Until next time! Enjoy what’s left of the year!

EDIT: Changed the links @_@.

Ok, a quick post because it's really late and I need to wake earlier later today D:. So APH day was last Saturday, 22nd October, and it was unfortunately the last time this organising committee will be handling it /woe is me and all of us!!! ;_; Needless to say, I was rather disappointed to hear that since their enthusiasm and dedication was what drove me to attend it despite needing to rush for my cousin's wedding dinner almost immediately after. Well worth it imo. So I've been meaning to do an artwork or something to commemorate the event but thanks to my crapload of school work, it is almost impossible to do so D:. I don't even have time to finish the writing piece I mentioned in the previous post! /epicfail Since the Bad Friends Trio had a huge role to play this time (\o/), like their awesome as heck Tik Tok/Single Ladies dance + Prussia's DJ booth, I decided that it is justifiable to doodle Prussia (I wanted to draw Spain and France too, but I just ran out of time I swear! T_T) in place of the more popular, prominent and almost as lovable America heh~

There's a reason why it is in my scraps


I really really hate how I only feel like drawing and/or inspiration for it comes during crunch time. It's almost like it's taunting me, "YOU'VE HOMEWORK DUE IN A WEEK WHICH YOU HAVEN'T STARTED ON AND I'M GOING TO DUMP THE BEST IDEAS FOR ART AND WRITINGS ON YOU NOW. ENJOY IT SINCE YOU'LL PROBABLY FORGET THEM WHEN YOU'VE CLEARED ALL YOUR WORK MWHAHAHAHA!!!" I swear, that's exactly how the voice in my head sounds. Anyway, Prussia's school girl outfir isn't really the usual depicted by fans, but since it's a... 'Tribute' for the lack of a better word for APH Day Singapore, it's partially based on the uniforms the cosplayers had on. 'Sides, I can draw that offhand but not the usual outfit :P. And yes, I drew Gilbird! :3 I feel like sewing my own Gilbird to go with my Gilbird-esque necklace... Oh, the main highlight for me (which is also BFT related) was that Spain kissed my hand after I bombed at his finger football station! \QvQ\ And that was after I 'shot' the mini football too hard and he went 'oww' when it hit his finger /opps..? But yes, I shall do a BFT piece along with a USUK one after exams.

So much for it being a quick one huh. Hiatus until after exams most probably! Wish me luck for my projects and finals! @_@;; I REALLY need it.

Despite wanting to draw/design/write for the longest of time, thanks to my mountain of assignments, I can barely squeeze in an hour or so per week to do them. To most, that's probably enough of a blessing in itself. It would be for me as well if it wasn't for the fact I need everything to be perfect. Including drafts and sketches. /kill me now, please? After realising that it's impossible to do so, (besides the 2 newer writing pieces I've posted, I still have one WIP since... Last week.) I decided to just randomly doodle or write when I can. Which has been really therapeutic! :D Although it pains me that both activities seem so unnatural and forced at times =/.

Ramblings aside, with the first submission of name for my CCA's doujin/mag project, I've gotten into the mood of drawing again D:. Since I can't do a proper piece, here's a half-hearted sketch of a concept I really want to execute properly when I have the time! Just putting it in ink so that I won't forget ><.

;_;


Yes, it isn't the happiest sketch I've done, and I stupidly doodled with too thick a brush. But I did try out a new drawing angle (and majorly failing)! I'm happier with the glasses than with the mister @_@ Oh, and guess who this is! Shouldn't be too hard since the other reason for me wanting to draw pretty much coincides with a particular upcoming event~ :3 And before the fangirls kill me, I didn't say the other person was dead! I just... Hinted that perhaps something unfortunate happened. @_@

As usual, I have to doodle at the most ungodly times. Well worth it since it's going to be a long while before I get to use my tablet again...

So my first midterm is next week, which I *just* finished reading through all the notes for + listened to lectures I've missed (40% of the total lot HAHA). I'm fail I know D:. I've been really unproductive, taking 3 full days to finish =/. I need to keep up this pace/go quicker if I want to finish everything in time @________@;.

Despite that, I still ended up doodling instead of getting a good night's sleep heh. On the notebook I'm using to take down notes for accounting /shot. Doesn't matter since my normal notes have enough doodles on them too haha. I was browsing through a portion of my fanart for motivation, and I realised once more how badly I want to be able to draw well D:. (Nice timing huh.) After resisting for an hour or so, I decided heck it, I'll just sketch. And not on my tablet since I'd not be able to stop ><.

Rei the fighting waiter!


(Yes, I ended up using my tablet for like 5s in the end. Sue me :P.) The victim chosen was Rei from Bakuten Shoot Beyblade! :D Yes, I mostly draw characters from old series, BECAUSE I CAN D<. Pose isn't too dynamic but sure beats my usual hands by the side nonsense. And yea, longer/fuller bodied chibi because he'll look like an obese chicken trying to reach upwards if it's in the style similar to the CAS chibis. -.-;;. Towel's there because Rei works as a waiter since he has too much time and wants to help his friend who owns the restaurant/needs more money (this stupid reason was given in place of the former in the international release). And 'sides, his arm looks like the perfect place to hang a towel OvO~

Off to bed for me~ At least it's before 3am OTL.

Has it really been that long since I've last posted? =/ Sure doesn't feel like it... After the whole Freshie Fair thingum + the start of school, I've barely enough time to surf the net randomly, let alone draw/write. Which is terrible since I was so certain I could at least do a proper piece of either per month... Excuses aside, since it's 'recess week' (i.e. the week during which you slave away revising because you didn't understand a crap which was taught in the first half of the semester), I decided to break the dry spell!

Heh!


Fooled ya didn't I? :P That's the 2nd half of the TDN requests I took during the summer holidays. Yes, I've only gotten around to uploading them now, despite finishing them a week into this semester :X. I'm efficient ain't I?

Kidding aside, I did start on a new piece (for real!) earlier today. It was sort of an on and off sketch turned into a potential piece which I decided to clean up. :D

WIP! )

Sleep beckons~

I had the most annoying drawing itch for the bulk of the day, but thanks to.. Biological reasons, I was out of action until late at night -.-;;. And still, the itch wouldn't go away. I can't draw anything proper since it's rather late so why not sketch it all away?

Which was what I did


The main reason for my itch was browsing through Beyblade fanart, which was also the first anime which made me want to try my hand at drawing anything. Later on, it ended up being the reason why I became a BL fangirl xD. So yea, good ol' memories. I didn't draw any Beyblade characters since Sec 2 or so, thus my sketches of Rei and Kai look kinda... Odd. OTL I still enjoy drawing Kai's hair though! :D Some things never change eh? Sketched Green too, because he is awesome and I've been staring at the Green postcard in front of me for days xD. His hair was fun to draw too! :D I pick awesome fav characters eh? Added in a random quickie of an Arthur lookalike (no seriously, I drew the hair randomly and it looked kinda like him so... *thickens eyebrows*) and a moochi version because England is awesome *v*

At least now I no longer feel like drawing! All thanks to sketching nonstop~ Or maybe it's because I'm trying not to fall asleep D:.

Ok, scratch what I said in my previous post. I should just revert back to writing for now. -.-;; My uncoloured sketches look fine but argh. Once I've lined them and filled them in however... T_T Not to mention it's been tooooo long since I've drawn anything D:. My arm's aching after a quick 30 mins sketch! Woe is me D:.

The shame!

I've never drawn chombies before, or plushies for that matter, so I was like, I can't draw them like I draw my usual quads, but I don't think I can copy the Neopets' style either so... Fugly mashup ftw! :D But the whole plushie concept was fun, so maybe I'll try something like that and do a proper job next time. Meh. Lazy shading because I just woke from a nap before sketching :D.

Since I was rather... Unsatisfied with my Neopets sketch, I decided to do another quickie. So I tried to doodle humans. @_@ Not sure if that was a good idea or not...

Sketchy!

Since I've only doodled Hetalia chracters twice or something, I decided to try Prussia! His hairstyle is similar to Seto's anyway so I figured why not? (Which is probably why the sketch looks more like Seto than Gilbert DDDDD:!) I can't seem to capture that 'evilness' Prussia usually exudes! D: Or his smexiness. Probably due to my sketches of guys looking like prepubescent boys usually. /hides in hole I think I better stick to writing for now indeed. ^^;;

And why is that so? Even if you are certain you'll want to draw after the first stroke, chances are that you'll end up too frustrated to churn out anything decent. OTL And forcing yourself to complete the piece will only end badly. Trust me, I know. Afterall, it just happened. Definitely not one of my best pieces of the year...



OTL is OTL.


Usually I'm slightly happy with the outcome for requests but damn, I just want to store this one away and never look at it again. The next time I force myself to draw when I don't feel like it, someone slap me.

Argh, I really need to learn to sleep earlier =/. Despite it being recess week, I need to head back to school later today and tomorrow D:. So much for waking past noon for the week. Anyway, managed to finish the next sketch request earlier yesterday afternon :D. I'm actually quite happy with how it'd turned out!

Aitvara the Christmas Draik, first of 3 Draiks -.-;;


Thankfully I find drawing Draiks quite a joy since I kinda like dragons in the first place xD. It's not exactly an accurate depiction of the Neopet itself, but a slightly yours truly's take on how they look like (e.g no whiskers, spots on wings are missing, extra toes for hind feet etc). I can see a ton of errors with the clothes and other stuff I can just rant on about but xD. It was a quickie done in under an hour. I'm happy. Did I mention I had a ton of fun drawing the 'folds' for the clothes? This was probably the only time I did them without fretting nonstop about how I'd screw them up heh!

I just realised that the other two Draiks have terribly complicated outfits too fml. Why can't I get a nice stripped pet or something?! Hope I'll be able to finish the other 4 pending requests (and repeated requests from previous people lying in my inbox) before break ends D:.

I'm absolutely not in the mood to draw. But here're days 5 and 6's drawings, rushed out in slightly over an hour. Scrapped because the quality is seriously atrocious xD.

Click!


So for Best Friend, I decided to draw my Laptop Sylvannas, since I do not believe in how absolute the word 'best' is. I have a group of friends I hold really close to heart, with each supporting me in their own way and during different times. That said, it would not be fair for me to single out any individual as the 'best' of the lot since I would not be half as sane as I am now without the rest.

As for favourite book, I had a tough time picking just one since I do have a bunch of titles I love. From gothic novels like The Picture of Dorian Gray to Orwellian worlds depicted in 1984 and Brave New World... It was a tough pick. I went with The Catcher in the Rye since it had my mind reeling for days when I read it in Sec 2. It was also one of the books which left quite an impact on me so I think it is worthy of the title xD.

The art's terrible I do apologise but with my current state of mind, I was quite astonished that I managed to draw anything other than random streaks across the canvas. Hopefully the next few days would be better.

My nerves are still killing me, so here's another doodle done in almost 30mins xD. Well, it's much easier to do than a full blown piece and it did help me calm down more so yay!


Heh.


Just a random fashion-ish doodle of a lady in side profile (I prefer drawing guys but :P). Colours randomly selected and hastily coloured. Didn't bother with cleaning up the lineart so xD. Her right hand looks a little odd but bleh. Should have drawn the fingers slightly bent backwards but don't even bother asking me what the blue/purple ball behind her is xD. She's wearing a khaki skirt with a high slit, not pants :P. I like the overall feel of it so :D. It is just a doodle, right? @_@ And yes, I did miss out some portions but I got my respite from drawing so HA!

Wish me luck for the next 5 days. *gulps*

Time flies doesn't it? I'm not stuck once more in sunny and wet Singapore, wondering when did my 2 month long stay in Da Lian end... Almost whimsical if you ask me. Troubled by all the nonsense university registration is throwing me, almost to the point of not sleeping well and now, I think I'm down with the flu.

Didn't get to post this when I was in China since half of LJ wouldn't load thanks to the great firewall of China so here you go. A little gift to myself if you will. Don't bother asking me what that thingum on the left is since I don't know either haha.


My new DA ID too.


Drawing really helps me evaporate the great cloud of headache too... Wanted to try oekaki since I've never tried it before. Hallelujah for spending 20mins or so figuring out how to change the pen tools and colours. Kingdra drawn from memory.

Quick sketch


I do realise how it pales in comparison to my normal doodles and even more to the better oekaki artists out there but kudos to me I guess?

Just when I thought I got the css issue fixed, Lj no longer loads properly for some odd reason. Damn it. It's driving me crazy. Yet another night without WoW and in no mood to update myself on all the anime and manga I've been trolling. I've been in one of those 'want to do something but unable to get off my behind to do anything' moods again. At least I wrote 12 full pages in my notebook at work today :D. That's something to be happy about at least. So to even it out, I did a 10mins doodle xD.

Yay for bad doodles!

The dog/puppy looks odd =/. Oh well, did it without reference so... xD. Imagine how it'll look if I actually brushed it up and coloured it in? O_o; That's a thought I'll hold on to (and probably ignore for the rest of my life). Work tomorrow and Japanese class. Hope my memory doesn't fail me for katakana. @_@

I'm terrible at balancing out my time. -.-;; I've not done ANYTHING but WoW from the time I wake till sleep ever since I've resubscribed to WoW to get my mind of my Neopets ordeal. Not sure if that was a good or a bad thing because number 1, I've 2 level 80 characters and I've max both their professions but number 2, both of their gears are terrible. I can no longer play a mage properly but bleh, at least I'm told that I'm a good lock? @_@. Wow whee for gearing up seeing that I'm flying soon and China's Internet is... -.-;;. Bleh. I wanna raid! Seriously! T_T.

Anyway, I've finally managed to pull myself away from anything and everything related to WoW and just sit for a couple of hours to draw. Starting at my usual prime hour of 11pm, I started doodling... And doodling... And doodling... Only to churn out crap. -.-;; Feeling a tad demoralised, I took out my newest artbook of this random anime game I've never even heard off (but has art to KILL for) and stared at it for a while. I started drawing again and viola! I actually sketched and coloured something decent! I didn't bother to look at tutorials etc and instead tried my own colouring style and I'll have to say, it was the best hour+ I had in weeks! (In terms of doing something I like other than WoW/shopping and how I felt mentally) So here is what lil ol' me pulled off.

Omgheeeeeeee! Something decent!
Click for DA link to this deviation!

This sounds pathetic but that is probably the best head shot I've done ever. -.-;; -cue laughter from everyone else- Oh well, hopefully, this means I'm improving (and not juts a spark of brilliance)! Perhaps I'll do some full pieces when I'm rotting in China without WoW :P! *rushes to bed with less than 8 hours of sleep for once*

After doing the meme, I had this urge to try out a new way of colouring hair. So after an hour of procrastination or so, I did. Which is both a good and a bad thing. The former because I like how the hair turned out. The latter? Well, I don't like anything else and I'm eating into my sleeping time. T_T. I need to learn how to control my urge to draw...


*pokes link*


Not going to say much more. Too tired to care. @_@
