Soon Lee Voucher

A very fun job I did with Soon Lee (a local boutique located at Haji Lane 56) for their in-store voucher. Almost total creative freedom to conceptualize and draw. :D

Figure Drawing

During lessons (each 3 hrs with about 45mins for break) we typically vary between 3-5min, 20 min, 1hr, 3hr, 6 hr (same pose for 2 weeks).

These are some of the quick gestural drawings with 3-5 minute poses. Usually size of drawing is between A3-A2, or A2-A1.

Large Drawing

One of the projects from school, where we're supposed to have a large piece of artwork in the end. I went around the city sketching in my sketchbook, before redrawing/enlarging and linking the original sketches to form the large drawing.

the words of Mr. Wood

Ashley Wood that is.

"Cut away the bullshit, the swindle, the galleries, the cooler-than-shit historic myths of street/gallery/animation/low/high/brut/comic art background and you're left with the image. Does the image work without a clapperhand explaining why it rocks? No? Then fuck off, write a novel, and leave art to someone else. Intellectualize and die."

*drops to ground and kowtows in hero worship*

that is a completely tattoo worthy quote, is it not?

OIC Scavenger Sketch!

Topic this time, draw your favourite superhero from your childhood. muahahhahaa.

i <3 the TICK!

Recent Stuff :D

have been drawing quite a bit recently, outside of what is required in school. :X been slacking for a while.

first two are drawn from reference, Weegee's New York. i super super love weegee's photos.

^nib and ink

^graphite on paper, although the paper abit too rough for the texture that i was going for, used a tortillion to do the smoothing of shades. tortillions are cool.

hardest bits to do is the shading on the legs, to show the knee and the calf muscles :/ so it's good to reference from photo because when do in life drawing classes, i'm usually too busy with getting the shape of the body correct to be bothered about the correct muscular definition. :X

lecturer says is good to copy from old masters' drawings because then you get a pretty good idea of the muscles of body and the underlying structure of skeleton/how different muscles strain and stretch in different poses, etc. got to do that for class, so will report more on that soon.

^nib and ink drawing of an acquaintance. i find that the nibs with round ends suit me better than the ones without the round tips. they're much more suited to do bold, fast lines, so work well for quick drawings/sketches, but too clumsy for delicate line work.

will try to borrow a camera to take photos of larger drawings in my studio. :D

haven't done much with colours yet though. i kinda want to learn how to draw correctly first, before i start using colour, but maybe doing both together is better. opinions?
