Doodle... clematis clematwo

Ink floral drawing inspired by the Clematis flower
Meow there, Monday!  Playing with white pigment ink (Uni-ball Signo)... first time doing an illustration with it, rather than just using it to add highlights and small touch-ups.  Inspired by the Clematis flower.  It's not an all-ink Inktober artwork... I used Sakura watercolors for the background.  This was a very, very, very fun illustration to do!!!  I enjoyed doing the gradient and textured background. I also liked the contrast of white ink as well... something different and new from my usual black inkpens.  😺😺😺

Meow there, Monday!  It's Inktober October again!  So it's back to inkpens.  Time goes by real fast these days.  It still feels like early 2017.  I think I'm still stuck in Summer....................😺😺😺

Portrait... lee jae jin of sechskies

Lee Jae Jin of Sechskies
Watercolor Pencils and Graphite Portrait

Meow there, Monday!  Haven't done a portrait in a long time... Lee Jae Jin of the kpop group, Sechskies.  One of my fave groups!  Discovered them group on YouTube some months ago and I'm loving their music!  They regrouped some time last year after disbanding in early 2000.  They just released their new album last week... Love, love, love the new songs!  πŸ˜ΊπŸ˜ΊπŸ˜Ί

My fave member is Lee Jae Jin... so of course, I had to do his portrait!  He has very beautiful eyes!   And dimples!!!  I can't seem to quite get the likeness though.  Did a lot of tweaking, but still couldn't get the likeness.  He looks a bit livelier/perkier in my portrait as compared to the reference pic.    

Now, sharing some of my fave songs from Sechskies and a few of Lee Jae Jin as well... 

He's quite good at doing portraits!!!

Very likable/lovable character... a bit weird but silly, goofy and funny!

Probably my most fave song of Sechskies!
"Together Forever"


"Three Words"
... and they're Now, Here, Us. πŸ’•

Another of my faves!
"Pom Saeng Pom Sa"
Live or Die by Style!

"Something Special"
... from their new album.

Sketch... hair waves

Fashion illustration - long, flowy and wavy hairstyle
Meow there, Monday!  Fun with hairstyles again... It's been weeks since the last one. Had been quite indecisive with this one!  From the collage of my WIPs below, you can see I kept changing my pencil lines.  Bangs... no bangs?  Center-part... side-part?  Sleek and wavy or fluffy and wavy?  With flower or not?  Single flower or a few of them?  LOL... Even when I was already inking it, I still kept making changes!  I wonder if guy artists get fussy when they draw women's hair...  πŸ˜ΊπŸ˜ΊπŸ˜Ί

Doodle... loop all over

Flower design zen doodle

Meow there, Monday!  Flower doodle for today!  Thought I'd try doing an all-over/full page zen doodle/drawing... those that kind of make you dizzy and cross-eyed just looking at them!  I can see why they call it as zen.  It does feel like so when you keep drawing and filling up the whole page.  πŸ˜ΊπŸ˜ΊπŸ˜Ί

I think zen doodles are supposed to be freestyle and spontaneous kind of drawings.  Had a hard time being spontaneous.  I couldn't do it without pre-sketching and planning out the whole doodle!
