Weekend sketches

I bought a new fountain pen, as I always wanted, I finally got it, the pink Lamy :) And I did some sketches, I like the uneven ink flow of the fountain pen. Since I have to press slightly harder for the ink to come out, it gives my sketches this comic look.

I tried to paint over my sketch, didn't realise the ink is not waterproof :P so I went back to my Pigma Micron pen for the watercolours. I shall order some waterproof ink next time.

Lunch time sketch

Thursday, August 05, 2010


This is another study I did from a photo I found on the internet. Before I dig too much into colouring I thought I should practice more with shading.

At work

This is Wayne who sits behind me at work. I did this a week or so ago. I realize even though we sit so close to each other, I rarely turn around, I would send him instant messages and hear him typing his to me, but we would not turn around, why is that?! A bad habit everyone seems to have in this industry.

woman portrait

I find it extremely hard to paint female portraits, they never look who they were supposed to be, so I'm not even gonna say who this is meant to be, assume this is just some woman portrait I paint off a picture. I still enjoy it alot, especially the colouring part, I wish there is a colouring book for adult water colour enthusiasts, like me :) So I don't have to sketch them myself in order to paint. I do enjoy sketching as well but it can be discouraging when it doesn't turn out looking so womanly.
