Sketch... Halloween Goth Lolita

Happy Halloween!  Sketched something that's my own again for a change...  I'm channeling my inner Goth Lolita for this sketch.  I've always loved anime and manga... and cos-playing is also getting popular in Cebu these days.  So, I thought I'd do an manga-inspired, Gothic Lolita outfit for this spooky event.  Had a lot of fun with this one!  =^.^=

David Downton

Another one of my fave illustrators!  He is just sooooo good at it...  master fashion illustrator!

A slideshow of his beautiful art!

Live sketching... 
I love watching artists working/drawing!  You can learn some very useful tips just by watching them draw!

Beautiful portraits!  Even those casual ones he drew on his sketchbook...

Poor lighting and audio...but the content is awesome!

Sketch... Blumarine Spring 2013 RTW

A pretty Spring collection by Blumarine...  Flowy and relaxed designs.  Nice colors too, feminine and fresh!   Wanting summer today... it's rainy and wet!  I do like the rain, but just not today.  I feel like going to the beach, enjoying the sun, sand and water...

Sketch... Matthew Williamson Spring 2013 RTW

Meow there, Monday!  We meet again!  Didn't we just meet the other day?  Lately, you seem to come around much sooner than I would like.  Frankly, I'd rather hang out with Sunday for a bit longer!   But seeing you, Monday, is okey I suppose... after all, you always bring with you a new week.  A new start!

I really enjoyed Matthew Williamson's Spring 2013 Ready-to-Wear collection.  Beautiful fabric prints...  and the colors!  Such intense and vibrant colors!  Love it!  I also like the design details.

Sketch... Christmas red

Meow there!  Merry Christmas!!!  LOL... Really, Christmas has already begun in my country... started weeks ago at the start of SeptemBER.  So I'm actually a bit late with my greetings here!  LOL...  We call the last 4 months of the year the BER months... Christmas is at least 4 months long here!  Extend it by a week or two into the New Year... As early as September 1, you can already start hearing Christmas carols on the radio or from the neighbors' house.  TV news begin featuring holiday related news clips.  Stores start selling holiday decors and people start doing their holiday decors.  Seriously!   LOL.   And I'd say there are even a few people here who think Christmas is  all-year long.  Their holiday decors have been out all year, only to be replaced with new ones when the new cycle begins.   I like the Ber Months, beside it being the holiday season, the temperature also gets chilly at night and dawn.  =^.^=

Anyway, I was thinking of candy canes when I was sketching this Christmas outfit.  Maybe I shall name her Chrissie Candie... Or Peppermina Red?  Redda Green?  Greena Red?   Hmmm... maybe not Greena, there's barely any green on her!

Sketch... grey with a pop

It's been a gloomy week!   Grey, cloudy, dull... partly wet and rainy, even had some weird thunder too!...  So, a couple of grey outfit sketches... with a little pop of color!   Happy weekend!   =)

Youtube... cat videos

Meow there!   Been watching cat videos on Youtube for the past few days.  Once you start, you just can't stop!   Someone please help me stop watching them!   

Yutaka and his adorable cat, Chiro...  I've tried giving a few of my cats massage before... don't think I have masseuse hands.  They would tolerate it for only a short time.   LOL!

Aniki in the jacuzzi... probably one of the silliest pet videos I've ever seen!  

Lowdope and his cat, Moire... Yeah, Moire is that stalker/stop-go kitten on Youtube.

The way Moire is so relaxed and content lying belly-up is so cute

Lowdope, with Moire and Crie...  the last part of this video is just so sweet.  

Well, see you all on the next blog post, that is if I can stop watching these darn videos to do some art...  Off to watch more cute and cuddly cats on Youtube!!!  =^.^=

Sketch... casual comfy

Decided to try using pencil/graphite as outline, instead of ink pen.   Might stick with the ink pen.  =P
