 A few more live drawing from November 2012

Inking with green has brought a lot of different surprises, what I love most from this color is that once you brush off the dense ink and spread it to other regions, the green lightens up into a nice mid tone color, and a few more concentrated drips will accumulate as the darkest regions that you favor it to be.

I forgot how good it feels to smudge pencil or charcoal, to give the subject a nice mid tone shade. Thanks to a video blog from Bill Plympton about how he animates, his quick shading methods although looking like squiggly lines and whether you drunk or in a rush, really provides that nice texture towards the subject that you drawing.

Inking Life

Quick post for this month

Again, been very unproductive in updating works these days.
However live drawing has been quite a nice change in experimenting with ink drop sketching, and thumb smudging.

Caught the cold

Caught a cold from work a couple of days ago, the scratchy throat, yellow phlegm and piled up toilet papers not making my days. However this was a weird experiment, wanted to draw what I felt through the sick periods. And for certain the drawings felt sick, added comfort was the blended Olympics

Edging towards August steches

 Ending July off with different group sketches, seeing myself adding minor details each time a piece is done. On a side note: I really suck at drawing teddy bears~

Brainstorming short

This is a new project, working with a writer friend of mine, collaborating on brainstorming short stories.

This is Edwina (name might change in future developments), she's quite a character which normally kids of her age should come by as a cool friend to have. However kids treat her differently from what she expected, due to some secrets that she doesn't even know.

This is a pre-visual development of the short, hopefully more ideas will build up in the next month.

T-Time "TEASER" launch

Latest update,
I finally completed a rough thesis short film. Inspired by the cultural settings of Singapore. Digital medium used: Adobe Flash, although I am not a big fan of the look of the lines created in Flash, but as a fast animation platform it is OK. The later film was edited in After Effects. Will be tweaking there and now for a finish look in the next few months time. For now I have a teaser for you out there to view.

New sketches from life drawing (March)

Been too long since I last posted anything relating to drawing.
What's really nice about this latest drawing session was my take on adding watercolor washes onto my sketches.

I always had a fear in coloring in sketches, however it actually came out to be quite interesting and hopefully I will continue with this additional method for future works.
