So I was feeling a little..oily..?

30th March 2014

Dear Chibi,

I had some time on my hands today so I decided to take out some oil paint and make something :D I’m actually really bad at traditional painting so this is just a bit of mindless fun 8D. Oil paint is quite difficult to use @_@ My paint brushes were also super-old cheap ones so that doesn’t help either XD

I didn’t know what I was gonna paint. I wanted something relatively basic for my level, so my Jigglypuff plushie seemed perfect 8D I couldn’t open the lid of the white paint, so I end up chopping it off with my scissors ^^” Now I’ve just wasted the entire tube by throwing it in the bin. How will I paint light stuff in the future? XD

My finished painting.  Looks kind of strange.. more like a Clefairy than a Jigglypuff. Oh noes!
It was a pretty fun, silly experience nevertheless 8D

Graffiti Wall

16th February 2014

Dear Chibi,

Oooo.. remember back in the day when Facbeook “Graffiti Walls” were popular? I managed to dig these out and decided to share them here. What memories :3

“Mr A came flying to the Moon…” WTH?

17th November 2012

Dear Chibi,

So Kaz found these doodles that I apparently did a while ago in one of her old note pads. I don’t even remember these, but I guess that’s what makes them so amusing…how random can you get? XD

WAHBA? Wabafett?? Someone is going nuts…

Who the heck is Mr A?? lolol

Dear Chibi,

A quick random doodle of Aladdin I did for fun :D

 

Liu Yi Fei Portrait Complete

29th June 2012

Today I finally finished a “new” painting of Chinese actress Liu Yi Fei! Technically it’s not a new drawing since I reworked an existing piece I did four years ago. It looks pretty different though :) You can see the older versions here: Part 1, Part 2.

I’m really happy with how this turned out :) I had a lot of fun painting her face and skin. Blending skin tones used to be what I feared the most, but now that I’ve grasped the basic technique, it’s not as scary. It just requires a lot of patience and lots of brushing!

Her hair, accessories and dress do still look a little rough… I probably should have cleaned it up more but after spending so many hours on the face, it wasn’t too exciting XD (That net was pain to draw…it’s still actually my first rough line art..) Hopefully it doesn’t bring down the picture too much :)

Sailor Moon Classic

26th March 2012

Dear Chibi,

I finally got around to drawing a new Sailor Moon fanart :) A lot of my recent Sailor Moon related art has been in the form of comic strips (MoonSticks) or Chibi Dolls. It’s only when I realised the other day that my last proper fanart was from 4 years ago (Eternal Sailor Moon), that I knew it was time for a new one.

Sailor Moon Classic

I really enjoyed the process of making this. It took roughly 12 hours from sketch to finish and I’m really happy with how she turned out. I hope you love it as much as I do.

For the first time, I took a bit of inspiration from the manga version of Sailor Moon (the wavy skirt, accessories etc), but drew her in my own style. It feels liberating :D

I think her legs may be a little awkward there, but hopefully it’s okay :)

Chinese Paladin 3 Chibi Dolls: Tang Xue Jian & Long Kui

11th March 2012

Dear Chibi,

Today I worked on two new Chibi Dolls of Tang Xue Jian and Long Kui, characters from Chinese Paladin 3 (drama). 2 years ago, I made a set with Zixuan in her various outfits. You can find them here. I’ve been meaning to draw Xue Jian for a while now (for a years actually) because I love her outfit.. it’s so pretty and pink and girlie and dressy XD Needless to say I really enjoyed drawing her :)

Long Kui Chibi Doll

Long Kui

This isn’t the first time I’ve drawn Long Kui, but back then I hadn’t even seen the drama XD You can find my old painting of her here. Long Kui wasn’t as fun to draw, mainly because her character design didn’t appeal to me as much. I like drawing characters with a fringe but she doesn’t have one, lol. Just personal preference.

Chinese Paladin 3 Chibi

And.. a group shot with all three ladies~ United after 2 years XD If you like these Chibi Dolls, you may like to check out other sets I’ve made:  XianJian 5, Sailor Moon, No Regrets (TVB) and Beyond the Realm of Conscience

Sailor Moon the Movie Chibi Doll

6th November 2011

Dear Chibi,
Today I created a Chibi Doll of Avery Danielle as Sailor Moon in “Sailor Moon the Movie” (Independent Short). I really like their costume design and the mask make-up is a great idea :)

Sailor Moon the Movie Chibi Doll

You can adopt the Chibi Doll (Miniature version) from Chibi Land as well as the original Sailor Moon characters :) Hope you like it! Have fun.

 

Xian Jian 5 (Chinese Paladin 5 Game) Chibi Dolls

3rd July 2011

Dear Chibi,
Just in time for the XianJian QiXia Zhuan 5 game release in July 07, 2011- I’ve completed a set of ‘Chibi Dolls’ of the four main leads: , , and .XianJian QiXia Zhuan 5 Chibi Dolls

Chibi Doll Jiang Yun Fan

Jiang Yun Fan was probably the easiest to draw out of the four, since his outfit was relatively straight forward (well..compared to the others!) I found it strange that both his shoes were different, but I guess no one likes things in pairs anymore :p

Chibi Doll Tang Yu Rou

Tang Yu Rou was the first of the set I drew. I really like her character design, especially the petal dress. I had a fun time drawing her :) This one is dedicated to a lovely person.

Chibi Doll Long You

Long You was rather tedious to draw, lol. His outfit is really confusing and it was a little hard finding a good reference image since most of them were slightly on an angle. I like how it turned out though, his hair was kinda fun to draw too.

Chibi Doll Xiao Man

Xiao Man..why are you so adorable? She turned out to be my favourite chibi doll (beating Tang Yu Rou by a teeeny weeeny bit). I don’t know, but she came out way better than I thought. I had a lot of trouble getting her hair shape right with the bandana. Her outfit may appear simple but it’s very very detailed! There’s a lot of texture /beads and colours on the fabric. Her hair piece was also good fun to draw :)

And…I guess that’s it for now. Hope you enjoyed looking at them :}

Chocolate Princess

6th March 2011

Dear Chibi,

Yay! I’ve finally completed my latest digital painting.. a portrait of Hong Kong singer Charlene Choi (Twins) which I named “Chocolate Princess” :) I started this a week ago and spent about 25-30 hours on it total- pretty crazy huh? I based this image entirely off a reference image- so nope, I didn’t make her up. Maybe one day I’ll be good enough to paint without a reference (though that will be super tough!)

This artwork is my personal best so far so I hope you like it too!

Digital painting work in progress

Special thanks to Maki who gave me a crash course on how to blend colours yesterday (when the painting was almost done! haha). I was having a lot of trouble blending colours and it gave me an idea of how to tackle it (though I didn’t follow it exactly, I adapted it to my own style) You can compare the difference with the 2nd picture above with the one below.

Chocolate Princess Close Up

Close up of the finished painting at 100% scale.

Charlene Choi as Chocolate Princess
My favourite parts: Her eyes, her hair with the melting chocolate and the left side of her dress
Most difficult aspect: Her face (in particular her lips), painting/blending skin tone and colouring her dress

Final comments: The fur on her back was fun to paint (though very tiring since I drew every stroke)
I like how she looks in the end, except her face is slightly more chubby than I’d like (it looked thinner in previous revisions but in the end the lighting made her more round.. and I couldn’t fix it, haha)
