Base of the Skull of Toxodon Platensis

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

Random Sketches.:: [Confrontation] ::.

Finally less realistic drawings and more random doodles. This is something that came up in my mind yesterday. Firey pheonixes have always been a motif in my work. I’m recently introducing fawns and deers now. Love the idea, don’t like the lousy penart. :/

An animal’s skull from a creative photography book. I really like the subtle shading on this one. (:


Bald Eagle Pencil Drawing (again!)

Mr Tan said I can’t post coursework stuff next year, so here’s your chance to check out all my ILP drawings and stuff before everything goes private and confidential! Here’s another bald eagle pencil drawing from a copy of the Encyclopaedia of Birds in the school library. Check out the textures! :D:D:D


p.s. sorry the scanner picked up the skull and eagle head sketch behind LOL!

Winged Fox in Pencil

March 25, 2009 at 10:04 pm | Posted in Doodles, Drawings, Sketches | 5 Comments

A random winged fox I drew at school.. I didn’t bother to increase the shading since I’m already working on something else. But I really like the smoothness of the toning this time round. I didn’t like Chengkor describing it as “Neopet-ish”.. >:/

By the way, I’m currently converting this into a papercut design. 😉

Back to the good ‘ol pencil sketches again. My good friend the Pegasus is back in a more dynamic pencil sketch!

À Suivre: Hummingbird in 1.5 Painting Series

February 8, 2009 at 6:57 pm | Posted in Development, Drawings, Sketches | Leave a comment

Finally a new update to push that hideous rendition of a personified Friendlie down one post. I unwisely self-promoted my ARTBlog link in ISP (Intelligent School Portal) so now I’ve got more viewers coming in… And unfortunately they will be greeted by a very weird looking Fu Wa that will bring back no delightful déjà vu of 2008 whatsoever. And so.. I figured I must make haste on my next post, so here it is!

The first of my series of 1.5 paintings! I went with Leny to Art Friend to window-shop, and picked up two $1.50 canvases on the way. So now you know why they’re called “1.5 paintings”. Something struck me to draw a hummingbird last night, so I did. Here’s the sketch on the canvas which will soon (hopefully) be given a fresh, colourful coat of paint.

And so… visitors will now be greeted by an unpolished doodle of a hummingbird in mid-air! 😀

EDIT: Thanks to Leny for pointing out the flower’s odd proportions! (: Keep the comments coming!

One of those drawings from my sketchbook which I never posted until now. This was my fantasy-style take on the pegasus. It’s not drawn realistically or anatomically proportionate, but I didn’t use any reference so I quite like this one. (:

…It’s a bit squished though. X(

SAM: Xu Beihong in Nanyang–[Sketches]

Singapore Art Museum is exhibiting works of Xu Beihong called “Xu Beihong in Nanyang” from 5 April to 17 August 2008. I especially like his Chinese Ink Paintings of Horses, and here are some quick sketches from my visit to SAM with Leny and Jing Ying. They were orginally monochrome (done in black marker pen), but I added just a tint of colour for variation. XP

Sick Horse (1941)

A Pair of Horses (1946)

Standing Horse (1939)

Indian Buffaloes (1942)

I’m really proud of this drawing which I drew in less than 30 minutes, all just from imagination! No reference at all! And it does look like the phoenix/dinosaur hybrid I wanted it to be! (:

It’s blue because I like the colour BLUE! Actually, my scanner died. 😦
