Is there a reason?

The fact that blogger isn't letting me upload pictures nowadays is a bit irritating...
The reason that I don't update my blog nowadays is because of this problem...
Since most of my stories are better told with pictures haha.
Well gotta go!
Plus have a very happy new year!!!!
(although I know it's a bit late to say that hehe)

A step by step! :D
Just felt like doing it.
Found this sketch last 2 days ago and decided to finish the whole thing up.
Plus I've seen a tutorial which is about watercolor on lineart, might as well give it a try.
Spamming patterns here n there is what I like to do, although I can say too much can't be good. Heheh
Plus as usual, I'm forced to photoshop it since I was using my phone to take pictures of it.

The full version of Lotus can be seen here:
Lotus by Strvayne
There's more details there :D
It was fun doing this!

Japan trip!!

Too much to say, too lazy to type.
It's better to hear me say out my experience instead of seeing mere words here.

But it was a memorable trip, in which the weather and season suits my likings very much. :)
Thanks to a very very cheap offer by AirAsia, the ticket prices made it possible for my family and I to travel to Japan-- one of my to-visit countries!
It was like a dream coming true to me, and I didn't even realise that it was time to travel there on the night before our flight!
The best part is, it's end of autumn and the beginning of winter, in which the weather is approximately between 1C-10C, which is cold at night and cool in the morning, just my type of weather!! :D

The image that the Japanese had gave me was:
- friendly
- heavy makeup on the face
- hardworking
- in order
- walking very fast
- up to date and on time

which was quite good, this makes it an opportunity to meet people from other countries and learn about their cultures and habits.
Pretty good exposure to me :)
I gave a title to the trip, which was
"3 Cities in 7 Days"
Osaka, Kyoto and Nara.
I personally liked Nara a lot, coz it's a town which has everything you need, and most of all,
they have deers :3
they're so cute!! although painful when bitten hehe
and the food made me convinced that Nara is more likeable.
The weather there wasn't as cold as Kyoto, which was good. Plus there are parks for people to jog or just have long walks, which I like a lot. :)

Osaka is the busy city, like Penang in Malaysia.
Everyone walks fast, sales here and there, fashion shops down the entire street.
Just a restless and busy city, especially at night. :)
The Kaiyukan (aquarium) gave me a wonderful sight,
especially the rotating school of fish and the whale shark.
Makes me appreciate the beauty of the ocean more~

Kyoto is like Melaka, full of  historical sights and wondrous views of nature.
There are many many temples and shrines which can be easily found since all of them are connected into a pathway, easing tourists to walk from temple to temple.
It can be tiring to walk from here to there since it's quite a big area, but it's good exercise to me. :D
I liked Kiyomizudera, it gave me a lot of inspiration just by looking at the structure and the name of the buildings. Plus I saw a few famous singers from Korea and Taiwan filming there for travel shows.
Well aren't I lucky to spot them :)

Anyway, just a small conclusion.
I will go to Japan once again, when I have the ability and oppertunity!!
Thanks again mom for making one of my little dreams come true. :)

Happiness after a storm

My assignments and final projects are finally finished!! :D
I was so enthusiastic, I drew this.
Title : Flower Deer

The fact that this artwork got 20+ likes on my facebook is very very encouraging for me!!
It made me want to do better and better!!
Although 20+ sounds quite a few, but i know i can improve until i get more and more likes!!
I will work my way to the top!!

Back to the story, this encouraged me a lot when people tend to like it, I feel hope in me.
Compared to the last few days when I was quite down because I was starting to wonder whether I'm really fit to be an artist, this was a little hope for me. :)

I will work harder to produce more unexpected artworks!!

Sometimes, just sometimes...

I will think and wonder,
am I really an artist?
Am I doing it right?
why am I not good enough?
How can I excel and improve?

Sometimes I just get confused, or maybe it's because I wanted to be good at everything.
I haven't found my distinct style yet, and I keep wandering while trying out different mediums.
And in the end I'm lost.
Am I really counted as "good at drawing"? Or just a person who likes drawing?
In the end I don't know where to go.

But then after a night's sleep I tend to get back to my senses and motivate myself to be better!!
I must excel!!!
What's to give up on! I can do this!!
I can move on further!!!!!!!

Anyway I'm being temporary emo, since I tend to think too much :/

Blog header changed! :D

Figured that Christmas is coming soon, so I've decided to draw something, snowy.
It's been a while since I drew something with background.
I will further study and enhance my creativity on backgrounds!!

Desire for Peace

A woman who wants peace and marriage, but is not allowed to do so, for she is a warrior meant to stain blood on battlegrounds.

Simple lineart with a dash of color using photoshop. 
Finally after so long, an artwork with an actual background ; v ;

Before and After! :D

 Weeks ago had nothing to do, so drew this for fun, and part of it to make myself feel much more "confident". orz

Anyways been a while since I've posted anything..
n I just have to say I'm still drawing.....
but then all my friends are harmonizing together slowly.. 
n the once foreign-feeling-like class of DG2 has become peaceful~
i know u, u know me~
that's what I seriously like..
a peaceful class/environment to concentrate on during classes. :D
oh gosh what crap m i talking about now.. ==

went to AFA2012 at singapore last week :D
It was waaay grander than the last few years... but then the crowd had grown too...
n that makes it even harder to "travel" around the area...
as usual i brought myself (n my bro :3) to the doujinshi/artists area..
i wanted to spend.... i've prepared enough money to do so..
but in the end i just bought some prints from artists i know...
there were 48 artist booths there.. but most of them didn't really interest me..
in the end i narrowed down my cart/to-buy list to the usual artists that i know n admire..
n as u know one of them is Kidchan :3 
Toonikun n kunisaki's prints were worth the buy too :D
found a new artist that draws portraits like mad, n bought his/her lightning fanarts too~
overall there were so many cosplayers, making everything look less dull.
I wanted to find 3 of my friends who are in the same class as me, 
and as they were cosplayers... it takes time to find them..
I heard that they were cosplaying Kuroko no Baske.. but i wasn't sure..
so i checked every cosplayer's face.. 
after finding them for four hours (plus walking around looking at merchandises), i gave up..
n then i passed by a subway restaurant nearby there.. there were a few cosplayers sitting there...
but i was too tired so i just passed by..

after i came back to malaysia...
i saw my friends' pictures...
they were the cosplayers at the subway restaurant!!!! O.O!!!!!!!!!!!!!
they were cosplaying kuroko!!!!!!
stunned.... i just let it past..
at least i got my prints... = v =''

but then i'm interested in drawing Saber Lily,
so I gave it a shot and this came out.....

but it was fun :3
kinda like a practice for me...

n it has changed into the greater good... :3 

That's what's holding me recently...
since it's near to the end of sem 2!
So Imma kick it up a notch and focus more on assignments...

After a few months...

20 days since i've updated n posted here!!
there's a reason to all of this, coz
I've moved!!!
From point A to point B.....
oh wait, i meant i moved house, so it was quite hectic n busy.
especially during the moving house date, my gosh that was the most tiring day for me i guess.
Plus i realised that packing things into boxes wasn't the hard part, it was removing ur items from the boxes...
gosh by then u have to think which item goes where, n whatever u want to reveal or hide on shelves n drawers...

took me 2 days to fully unpack all the things..
but then it was my comics who were pain-staking..
coz i had to reorganize all of them, and as i said, think whether i'm gonna read this or see it as reference or anything at all..
so in the end i've decided to sell my comics ==
from this day onwards...
it has been the 6th day living here.. n i have to say i'm quite getting used to things.
It's just that the bed............ the mattress is new... so i'm still trying to cope with it...
but then, my back doesn't arch according to the mattress in 3 days -.-
so i hope it will fit perfectly into my back for,hmmmm.......... the rest of my life ==

plus these days the assignments r getting more again,
so gotta focus on them,
but then,
there's the new house chores...... orz
n i can't just sit there n do my assignments without a care in the world..
this house needs some help here n there....
so i'm balancing my world now..............

Yet another surprise!

This time from my classmates in which I wasn't that familiar with!
It was after figure class... (thurs) and we were all packing our things to go home..
then suddenly i heard wallace said, "1,2,3!"
wud in the world!!??
suddenly the class in which i consider as strangers sang a happy birthday song for me!!
i was in total shock!!!!
Chloe even said my face went red!!!
I didn't know what to do!
so i just bowed to them while saying thank u
a veryyyyyyy big grin on my face!!!
It felt like the first step to becoming greater friends with them!
I really wish to get to know them better,
n i hope for the next few years we all will become closer.
aaah i'm so touched by them ><
although some of them still didn't know how to pronounce my name,
but that's ok!!
at least the effort's there!!
n i appreciate it very very much!!

back to now,
today my mom n jenny jiex2 took me to get a haircut + highlight as a birthday gift!! :D
the saloon was in bangsar, and totally that hair makeover took about 3 hours o.o
my butt stiffens everytime... ==
but the result is very nice i must say :D
n now my hair is highlighted with a soft red, visible n obvious when under sunlight,
plus a bit of natural curves on the tail of my hair :3
I have to say, i really like this hairstyle..
although it isn't much difference to my last one~
thanks again mom n jenny jiex2!!

My figure studies r helping me in progress with my coloring skills, in which muscle needs shadows etc.
There's a better understanding for me.. n i'm utilizing it :DDDD
the right white hand thingy is a skull... following where the skull arches in or out... i can determine the lightness on the face!
Gosh it's useful o.o
n that's why i really want to master it!!!!!

Finished scene:

The Expected plan for a surprise

Nearly failed but it didn't!
Storied heard from them, mostly Shar n KL.
Previous post is my situation.
It may be wrong, but this is what I heard. hehe


Shar had planned this surprise for me ever since she came back from UTP, perak.
She called the gang n confirm a day with them to come out n eat dinner during Sat.
But due to my plans to Johor, I couldn't go.
Shar was panicking o.olll She said she called them immediately, asking whether they could change it to Sun instead..
A few of them said ok, a few said maybe, which made her more nervous.
But good thing most of them can go for dinner that night. So, plan began,
Shar came up with a lie, telling me that it was for spying on the restaurant's food, n in which her mom made reservations n will be joining shortly.
Around 6.45pm, KL (seriously =.=) fetched her to my house... n we left for the restaurant.
KL was in the car with QY, DEA, COCO N KX... (gosh they're like ninjas, how didn't i notice =.=)

At the restaurant, we went to confirm our reservation for a table.
She booked it for 6 people, but said it was only for 2 people.
But when the lady double confirmed, she said 6.
It slipped thru her mouth, with her thinking,"ohsheet"...
plus the reservation phone no. was 017, which made her worry more....
but soon their plans worked when I was very surprised to see them all walking in the door.

After fetching Coco home, KL drove to my house, with KX, Dea n QY in the car.
Before I came out, they lighted up the candles on the homemade cake n presented it to me on the car porch, surprising me the 2nd time.
I thought, no wonder Shar wanted to buy icing sugar....
coz it was on the homemade cake with a NYEAH face...  O.O

about the presents,
I forgot how i kept asking KL to check the price of Tablo's album : Fever's End for me... not realising something's happening....
The jazz album was when Shar noticed me always holding or looking at Jazz albums, saying how nice they were everytime we were in a CD shop...
gosh i have more 漏洞 than i expected -.-
but it was truly a very unforgettable moment that i will cherish!!!
18th Bday rocka yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


An Unexpected Surprise. (My situation)

That was what I had yesterday (16.09.2012) O___________O
My face was practically like..
N it went like this...

One fineeee day,
Shar asked me wanna go makan on Sunday,(me n her only) since she n KX's leaving for perak on Monday...
i accepted it, not noticing that she was constantly confirming with me about dinner..
I didn't notice, so i just assume it's on.
Then i remembered i asked QY whether she wanna yamcha on that night... so might as well ask her to come together for dinner... but i forgot to ask..
Sunday : Shar's parents fetched her to my house. n we set off to a restaurant around Sg. Buloh.
She told me that her mom wants her to spy around the restaurant's food and compare the price with her mom's own restaurant. So her mom may be coming or might not.
We arrived at the restaurant.. finding our reservations (btw i saw my relatives there :D such a coincidence~).. i noticed the reservation's for 6 people, which was wierd...
But my curiosity faded off when Shar told me maybe her mom's business partners r coming along too..
but when she checked the phone no. for reservation..
it was 017...
I thought... wierd... i don't remember Shar's mom being a hotlink user...
Doubt... hmm...... but nvm la.. i just sat down on the 6 seated table.
Then when i was chatting with Shar..
I saw something................ or someone to be exact...
KL O____O
what's she doing here? makan dinner with her family? But i didn't see her family..
instead i saw QY, KX, DEA n COCO..
after reorganizing my brain's logical reasons, i knew why.
On the same time, Shar gestured to KL n said,
"Meet my mother."

なるほど(Oh i see)
This dinner is a gathering, also functions as a celebration for my b'day O.O
Awww i was so touched....... I can't stop smiling when i saw all of them here..
The friends I dearly cared for
Since everyone was busy with their own lives, it was really hard to actually gather, sit down and talk.
It was very very nice. :)
After that they wanted to come to my house.. but they'll fetch Coco back first..
So i just drove home with Shar in my car...
actually Yen Nee wanted to come, but something came up and she couldn't make it..
But that effort of wanting to come is enough for me to be very very happy!

Then I reached home n opened my com..
I heard the outside door opened n I thought oh they're here. (since Lilo's barking also -.-)
Then out of nowhere they held a handmade choc cake into my house, with lighted candles and a NYEAH face (>:D) on the cake...
this is way tooo surprising!!!!!!!!!!!
I was sooo enthusiastic that i jumped up n down after they sang a outoftunebutverylovely birthday song for meh!! They asked me to make a wish.
Within 5 secs, i wished 3 wishes that came in my mind 1st n straightaway blew the candles..
They were shocked how fast i was, but then MEH~ that's how i roll B)
I placed the cake in the living room table and they handed out something...
first was KL n QY's gift :
TABLO'S ALBUM -FEVER'S END !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i thought it was impossible to find, but here it is!!!!
GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i actually squealed and jumped around with it!!
HENG AHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! XDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
Then Shar, KX n Dea's present was
Da Hell!!!!! How they'd know imma Jazz lova!!!!
I straightaway opened the CD n played it with the PS3.
Gosh....... soothing and very very nice!!!!!
Just what I loved!!
The whole album sounds so nice!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can't thank them enough for their very very very very very very very precise presents!!!!

 After that we went for 2nd round.
Drinks :D
After fetching Dea home, KL, Shar, KX n I went to Publika for a drink!
Ahhh the environment and the view n the music n the drink weaves nicely
N i'm satisfied :D
Then the day ended with me fetching them home (KL driving home), and going to bed with a smile.

Maybe I wasn't really hoping for anything, that's why I was surprised when all of this happened.
From the depths of my heart, I'm very sure the shocked feeling was true.
N of course, the happiness within.
Thanks a lot guys!!!
You made my heart so shocked and lame (coz i didn't found out)
and u gave me.... what i wished forrrrrr
aah the lyrics changing kinda sucks =.=
but sincerely, thanks a lot!

New WIP Project

I've decided to explore how to make videos, thanks to KL for spiking my interest of it. I'm going to illustrate a story using my main characters, with the main theme and title called "Hope".
I don't know when it'll be finished due to my pile of assignments on the go, but hopefully I can see it grow and conclude!
The concept of the video is to make it like a trailer, but nothing's moving in it, just simple illustrations showing how the story moves on. It's something like the vocaloid videos that has storylines, using pics to tell a story.
Well, hope this will work!!!! :DD

Burst of Colour

Latest watercolour artwork! :D
Finished it yesterday out of the kick to experiment with colours.
Plus after seeing an inspirational video of speed painting by Wan Ling,
This is how it came to be. :)
Used actual/good quality watercolour paper, n it colours like a breeze..
the feeling when u're painting on the paper was divine!!
No wonder it's so expensive!
But that is a gift from Pei Hui last year!
So I thank her again for it! :D

Two in One!

" If only we lived a normal life, then I can treasure you forever."
"But fate doesn't allow us."

Innocent Love
Two in 1 day!
i mean finished them..
It's been a while since I actually painted with semi-watercolours!
They're semi coz I don't think the watercolours I bought are actual watercolour paints.
Both are inspired by the most recent anime I finished in 3 days,
Kimi ni Todoke!
Veryyyyyyy nice n sweet anime!
Something to get away from all those action-packed or just plain horny anime!
Refreshing and enjoyable!
Both artworks r also inspired by Kimi ni Todoke's OST,
which are both called "Kimi ni Todoke"(song name)
very very inspirational,
even the lyrics are touching, especially after you watch the anime!!!

assignment time.
= 3 =
