Sketch... Goodbye 2014!

Kawaii and Blythe inspired fashion illustration for the New Year 2015!
Meow there, Monday!  Here we are again... the year's coming to an end.  Saying goodbye to 2014 and welcoming another new year.  And feeling much older... not sure I like that!  LOL...  But life and time goes on whether we like it or not!  Anyway, greeting the new year in dots and circles!  All things round!!!  Very popular for New Year here and for Christmas as well... It symbolizes luck, fortune, wealth and prosperity!  Happy New Year to everyone!!!  May we all have the best of luck, good health and prosperity in 2015!!!  =^.^=

Having fun with this kawaii/Blythe doll inspired fashion figure.,.  A lot of fun!  Especially the hair!   Goal for the coming new year:  get better at drawing hair!   And hopefully my internet gets restored before the new year!!!  It's soooooooo frustrating!  More than a week now!

Sketch... Christmas 2014!

Meow there!  Darn internet company!  Haven't been able to go online since last Saturday night...  Service is still down at the moment, but I'm currently using a pocket wifi my brother got me last night... Yay!  Got internet access!!!  I can blog again!  LOL...   Anyway, Merry, Meowy Christmas!!!  Have a wonderful holiday, everyone!  Forget the diet, Christmas only comes around once a year!  Enjoy!!!  =^.^=

Simple Christmas outfit... 

Thought I'd do a "different" fashion illustration/sketch from my usual style.  Been rather fascinated by those Blythe dolls for some time now.  Really enjoy pinning them on Pinterest!  They're just sooooo adorably cute and yet rather spooky.  Always, fashionably chic!!!  By the way, I didn't even notice, until a few months ago, that Blythe dolls don't have eyebrows!!!  No wonder they look somewhat a little spooky!  LOL...

Sketch... asymmetrical hairstyles

Fun with asymmetrical and edgy hairstyles...
Meow there, Monday!   Quick sketch, having fun with edgy, asymmetrical hairstyles.  For those times when you just can't decide if you want your hair long or short... So, why not have both!  =^.^=

Portrait... Javier Bardem in graphite

Javier Bardem portrait in graphite and watercolor pencils.

Meow there, Monday!  Wet and COLD weekend...  Glad Typhoon Ruby (international name: Hagupit) is on its way out of the country!  It was a rather anxious wait the past few days for the typhoon... with weather reports that were gloom-and-doom.  Thankfully it wasn't as bad as Yolanda (Haiyan)!  Anyway, posting the "finished" Javier Bardem portrait I was doing last week.  He has a very interesting (and good looking!!!) face, especially for an artist.  Lot of angles that play with light, shadow and contrast.  =^.^=

Added a little color, with watercolor pencils.  Kind of bored with doing all-graphite portraits... 

Javier is such a great actor!!!  "Biutiful" is certainly one of the best movies I've ever watched!  Watched it about four or five times coz it is such an great movie.  I love how he portrayed the character.  It's definitely not a pretty movie, it's actually rather heart-wrenching and some scenes are really harsh.  But I love it!   Watched also some of his other movies - Mondays in the Sun, Before Night Falls, Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Goya's Ghosts... Can't get enough of his acting!!!  He really brings those characters to life and sooooo believable!

Very nice interview.  You get to know more about him as an actor and why he is such a good one.  And despite the very negative character he plays, he is actually a funny and positive person!

In Progress... Javier Bardem portrait

Meow there, Monday!  Having a lot of fun with portraits, I'm doing another one again!  Haven't finished this one yet though.  =^.^=

Sharing some of the songs I'm currently listening to while doing art stuff.  Loving these songs!

Just discovered this one yesterday...  Loving the song and the music video!!!!!!
