Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s Sydney Concert @Big Top Luna Park

25th June 2016

Dear Chibi,

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu 5IVE YEARS MONSTER WORLD TOUR 2016

Kyyaaryyyyy :D Last night Hubby and I came back from j-pop princess Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s concert held at Luna Park! It’s a one night show in Sydney as part of her “KPP 5iVE Years Monster World Tour 2016”. I was lucky enough to win a double pass to the show, so Hubby and I were both super excited!! We first discovered her music while on our Japan trip back in 2012. Her music video was playing on a large billboard in Shibuya, and her song “Candy Candy” caught our attention. Who would’ve known 4 years later she would perform in Sydney, and that we’d get a chance to see her live?

It was a standing concert and we managed to get a pretty good spot up near the front (on the second row). Loved the atmosphere, many fans cosplayed and dressed up. I might’ve done something if I didn’t have to come after work XD We weren’t allowed to use our proper cameras, so here’s some pics I took on the night with my phone. Still pretty decent quality :)

Kyary was so cute >w<! It was a simple gig, but really enjoyable. She danced the whole night, wore 3 different outfits and got the crowd pumped. I knew around 80% of the songs, while Hubby knew 100% ;D Shows who’s the bigger fan doesn’t it? He was waiting for her to sing “Kimi ni 100 Percent”, and lucky for him she performed it during the encore :D

“Pon Pon Pon”

Wallace Huo & Hu Ge ~ Winter Bromance

23rd February 2016

Dear Chibi,

I’m almost 29 and I can’t stop fangirling over Wallace Huo!! *A*

I also love his on and off-screen chemistry with fellow co-star Hu Ge from Chinese Paladin 3. They recently did a photo shoot together in Hokkaido for the March issue of Harper’s Bazaar China- “Winter Valentines”. I need this *cough* 8D

That awesome moment when a celebrity tweets you :D

7th August 2014

Dear Chibi,

The other day would be like any other day, where I’d log onto Twitter, share a few Sailor Moon tweets, read some messages and hop offline. This particular day, I shared a drawing of the PGSM cast I had previously done (The live action version of Sailor Moon).

And then this happened:

Startling By Each Step (Bu Bu Jing Xin) and other Chinese dramas

12th January 2013

Dear Chibi,

Since finishing “Chinese Paladin 3“, I’ve been meaning to try out a few other Mainland Chinese dramas. I love watching Fantasy/Wuxia/Romance series set in ancient China.

A few months ago I started watching “Strange Hero Yi Zhi Mei” starring Wallace Huo and Liu Shishi (both from Chinese Paladin 3) and got up to about episode 10. It was okay, but it wasn’t as interesting as I had hoped. Not even Wallace Huo was enough to keep me from calling it quits.

Next, I decided to try “Xuan Yuan Sword – Rift of the Sky“- a series I was keen to watch because it has a similar feel to Chinese Paladin. Sadly, I got up to about episode 6 and started losing interest. I don’t like any of the main characters so far, and most have been introduced except for Gu Li Na Zha (who happens to be the only character I might like). SHE HASN’T EVEN APPEARED YET JEN, WHY DID YOU STOP? Because the dry plot and main leads are driving me crazy. I also find the costumes a bit of a turn off.

All these series are about 30 episodes in length so maybe I’m giving up too early. Who knows, maybe I’ll come back to this series in the future^^;

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 :)

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.

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

Dear Chibi,

TVB No regrets Chibi Dolls

Yesterday I completed this piece of fanart for K-TVB.net, featuring Wayne Lai and Sheren Tang from TVB series  “No Regrets. I love being able to portray characters in this doll form and I’m pretty happy with how they turned out :) I love Sheren’s distinctive look and she was quite a lot of fun to draw.

Embarrassingly, the last time I updated this sketch blog was almost a year ago. Sadly, the reason is that I haven’t drawn anything since then.

Charmaine Sheh receives cake from Malaysian fans

29th April 2010

Dear Chibi,

A few months ago I drew chibi dolls of the cast from TVB drama ‘Beyond the Realm of Conscience‘ for K-TVB.net. This included a character called ‘Lau Sam Ho’ who was performed by actress Charmaine Sheh.

A week ago, a Malaysian fan of Charmaine Sheh contacted me saying she was going to visit Malaysia and the fan club wanted to make a cake for her based on my chibi drawing. I thought- ‘oh why not’, so gave her a reply and didn’t expect anything to come out of it.

It turns out it really went ahead, and Charmaine actually got the cake with my drawing on it 8D That’s pretty awesome! (Even though I don’t get any credit for the original) She recently started up a weibo account (Chinese equivalent of Twitter) and posted a picture of  it as her first entry too, hehehee!

Here are two lovely photos I was recently sent as a token of appreciation ^.^ (She asked me to watermark them so I did)

Beyond the Realm of Conscience Chibi Drawing

21st February 2010

Dear Chibi,

Today I worked on a new set of ‘Chibi Dolls’ for K-TVB.net featuring the cast from TVB drama ‘Beyond the Realm of Conscience‘ :) It was tricky finding references since their clothing and accessories were quite detailed. The wigs confused me a lot. lol I tried to fit as much detail I could onto these tiny things, and I’m quite happy with how they turned out.

These bases were completely re-drawn and aren’t the same as the Sailor Moon chibis dolls I used in the past. I think it’s time to give it an update so the lines are cleaner :)

Liu Shi Shi as Long Kui (Chinese Paladin 3)

31st January 2010

Dear Chibi,

Today I decided to practice and brush up my digital painting skills. I’m an amateur when it comes to lighting and colour; as you can see in the work below. But hey, everyone has to start somewhere, right?

I randomly did a portrait drawing of Liu Shi Shi as Long Kui from Chinese Paladin 3. I haven’t watched it yet and I have no idea who Liu Shi Shi is, but she has a pretty face so there you go :D

I spent the most time and effort on her face, and got pretty lazy by the end of it and quickly rushed the hair and clothes x_x I tend to do that a lot which is really bad. It’s not complete but it will probably stay incomplete.

The hardest aspect is still the skin tones and to blend them together well. Right now you can clearly see blobs of paint >_< This is still something that boggles my mind..how to do it? @__@
