Sketch... wavy blue

Fashion sketch - wavy hairstyle
Meow there, Monday!  A bit of a break from portrait drawing posts. Here's a throwback drawing from years ago - 2003!  The original sketch is actually much smaller.  I enlarged it so the line texture would be more visible.  Made it into a tshirt print back then.  πŸ˜ΊπŸ˜ΊπŸ˜Ί

Portrait... Lee Joon Gi #2

Portrait - Lee Joon Gi
Meow there, Monday!  And another portrait of South Korean actor, Lee Joon Gi... A bit too much blue though... a bit avatar-ish!  And I still need to work on getting the likeness.    πŸ˜ΊπŸ˜ΊπŸ˜Ί

Multitasking... portraiture and youtube!  LOL... The video on the pic below is the music video "Stay" by Shinhwa.  One of my current fave songs that I have been watching/replaying for the past few weeks.  And of course, on another window I'm also watching kdrama!  πŸ˜ΈπŸ˜ΈπŸ˜Έ

Portrait... Tomoya Nagase

Portrait... Tomoya Nagaase

Meow there, Monday!  Made another portrait... Japanese actor Tomoya Nagase.  Saw his jdrama "My Boss My Hero" recently.  It was hilarious!  A bit over-the-top in some of its humor, but very funny!  Loooooove doing portraits lately.  It's because of all the kdramas/jdramas and kpop I've been into lately!  They're sooooooo addictive!  Can't stop watching them!  πŸ˜ΊπŸ˜ΊπŸ˜Ί

Using my usual art supplies... Staedtler Mars Lumograph 8B graphite pencil and Derwent watercolor pencils.  Used blues and purple for a touch of color.  Got a little bored with just plain graphite.  The color kind of gave the portrait some "depth".

Portrait... Lee Joon Ki

Portrait - Lee Joon Gi
Meow there, Monday!  Missed doing portraits, so here's another one - South Korean actor Lee Joon Gi... Been watching a lot of kdramas (and jdramas too!) lately.  They're so addictive!  Watched several of Lee Joon Gi's dramas and movies.  My favorite would have to be Two Weeks!  I love how he portrayed his character in that drama!  One of my fave drama characters!  πŸ˜ΊπŸ˜ΊπŸ˜Ί

I didn't quite get the likeness in my portrait... Need more practice!!!  I really like this reference pic though.  I want to do another one!  His facial features and face angle in the pic are interesting for portraiture...And of course, he's quite good looking too!  πŸ˜»πŸ˜»πŸ˜»

Portrait... Kim Sun A

Portrait - Kim Sun A
Meow there, Monday!  Haven't done a portrait for quite a while now... Kim Sun-A is one of my fave South Korean actresses!  First saw her in My Lovely Kim Sam Soon, one of my fave korean dramas.  I Do, I Do was also a fun kdrama.  Loving how fashionably chic she was in I Do, I Do!  I also love her character in Scent of a Woman... a tearjerker kdrama but worth watching!  πŸ˜ΊπŸ˜ΊπŸ˜Ί

I used my usual art supplies... Derwent watercolor pencils and Staedtler 8B Mars Lumograph graphite pencil.  Started with a base layer of watercolor pencils and gave it a wash.  Adding layers of colors as need.  Then I used the 8B for facial features/details and the hair.  Please ignore the mispelled name I wrote in pencil... 😸

I like watching/listening to music videos while I do my art stuff.  The music video in the pic above is Because It's You by Shin Hye-Sung.  Lovely song!  Anyway, sharing a couple of beautiful songs from Kim Sun-A's kdrama, Scent of a Woman... 

JunSu - You are so Beautiful

Lee Young Hyun - Response

Shin Hye-Sung - Because It's You

Sketch... hairfalls

Fashion illustration... flowy, asymmetrical hairstyle

Meow there, Monday!  Playing with hair, just like when we were young and playing with our Barbie dolls.  I just had two dolls actually and I really didn't go wild playing with their hair though.  Mostly I just combed them neatly as I didn't to ruin the hair.   I guess this is partly why I like drawing hair a lot. I can play with it however I want... I was thinking of waterfalls when I did this one, but the bottom part kinda looks like snakes as well.  πŸ˜ΈπŸ˜ΈπŸ˜Έ

Sketch... hairy curliques

Fashion Illustration - long, wavy hairstyle

Meow there, Monday!  A very wet Monday!  And it's another wavy hairstyle fashion illustration for today,  Made it wavy and with lots of curliques.  πŸ˜ΊπŸ˜ΊπŸ˜Ί

Thought I'd include the thumbnail idea sketch... Initially was going to put leaves/foliage around it but decided to do without them.  Maybe I'll draw another version with the foliage... this one didn't quite turn out the way I had in mind.
