Sketch... lunar New Year 2014

Meow there!  Happy Lunar New Year!!!  It's actually tomorrow, so is this my advanced greeting to you all.  Wishing everyone health, prosperity, wealth, success and happiness in the Year of the Horse!    Red outfit for the occasion, it's an auspicious color in Chinese culture.  May have overdone the red though... Anyway, the Chinese character she's holding means "good luck".  It's deliberately flipped upside down, so all that good luck flows/showers out... =^.^=

Perhaps a bit too much red?

As always, it's elegant and chic...

Video... quick fashion figure sketch

Meow there!  Thought I'd try doing a quick (and amateur!) video on how I do my fashion figures.  If you have seen my fashion sketches/illustrations in my previous posts, you'll notice line guides in many of my WIP pics.  It's the 9-1/2 heads proportion, which I have modified a bit.  I made the head a bit bigger, more space for drawing the face and hair!  I love drawing the face, almost as much as the outfit.  Anyway, lately I felt my fashion figures looked stiff in their poses when I use the line guide.  So, I have been drawing them freehand these days, including the one in this video.

P.S.  This is actually a repost... I was having trouble including this video via Youtube.  Yeah, as mentioned, amateur!  So, if you have read that earlier post, please pretend you didn't see it!  LOL... I'm new to this make-my-own-video thing, so still trying to figure things out.  =^.^=

Sketch... Monday stripes

Meow there, Monday!  A bit of the blue and grey today.  It was a wet and COLD weekend... and same thing today!  There seem to be a weather disturbance down south of the country.  I just hope it isn't going to turn into another typhoon, if it will be, hopefully it's not going to be a strong one!    Anyway, it's a modified colorblock stripes for today's outfit.  Have you all have a nice week ahead!  =^.^=

Sketch... radiant elegance

Meow there, Monday!   First sketch post for the new year...  Starting it with Pantone's Color of the Year for 2014, radiant orchid.  But just a touch of that radiance.  It doesn't have to be all-over radiant orchid, sometimes just a pop of color will do.  =^.^=
