Trying out a new style using longer strokes in pen. I think I’d rather stick to stippling…

Art Request: Pegasus Stippling

January 24, 2010 at 5:27 pm | Posted in Animals, Pen | 4 Comments

After the carnival, I got a request to make a larger-scale stippling work similar to my previous three “Arctic Animal” series. The artwork was to be given to a colleague of my friends’ to put in her daughter’s room. So there wasn’t much of a theme or criteria for me; I was pretty much free to come up with an image of my choice. In the end, I decided to paint my good friend the Pegasus in a dreamy moonlit night. Here is the result:

Needless to say I am very, very proud of this work. It took me about a day to finish, including the time spent surfing, facebooking and watching drama online. I hope the owner is happy with it! :]

NUH Art Canival Works

January 24, 2010 at 5:20 pm | Posted in Animals, Pen | 3 Comments

Here are some works I managed to create in time for the NUH Charity Carnival on 23 November 2009. Thanks to fellow Peachers Wei Rong, Kae Yuan, Sam and Zhang Quan for coming to help! ❤

Snowy Owl

Arctic Hare

Arctic Fox

All three were made using white opaque pen marker on canvas painted over with waterproof black poster colour. It was done with my favourite technique, stippling, and took me hours to complete each. But it was well worth the effort, and I sold all three at the carnival! 😀

Bowhead Whale, Stippled

I realised I hardly draw marine mammals, so here’s a Bowhead Whale for a change! And I’m using one of my favourite techniques… STIPPLING! The proportion was really tricky because I tend to make him look a little fatter.. XP

Caricature GiftArt: Meng Ran Friendlie

I know this is very belated, plus it doesn’t resemble Meng Ran the slightest bit… but it was a very quick drawing that she has been pestering me for since last year.

Okay, so I still need to brush up on my portraiting skills… XD

Drawn from a Royalty-Free GettyImages Photo “Ant on White Background” by Thomas Northcut during AEP today. Hmm… after this drawing I have decided that I don’t really like drawing insects. >P

Take.Flight was meant to be a major papercut, but I realised that the design was not suitable due to its negative/positive spaces. (Designs within the pheonix could not be seen) So here it is, the inked version of Take.Flight. Enjoy! (:
