What I did in the month of January.

SOYA is over and I had a great time. It also gives me opportunities to make new friends.

Well, for the month of Jan. Its been pretty good. Just to keep track of what I did, I manage to do the following..

1) Set up a booth to showcase Art @ SOYA 09

2) Attended my 1st ever Portrait Day @ MAAD with the OIC - which allows me to get to know many illustrators in the field. Also, since I don't have a training in Fine Art, this gathering allows me to do some training.

3) If you have been following, I've just revamp my blog. It still seems to be missing out something, so will touch up on that.

4) Submitted a 3 page comics for a local bookstore, Popular, Comics Competition. Results was out on the 20th Feb. Although mine was rejected but I felt good that I've set it out to produce them. Its also my 1st serious attempt to create panel comics, other than Ahmao My desire also to create more comics this year!

5) I managed to paint at least 1 painting per week. (Although my initial target is to complete 3 proper hand drawn-cum-digitally painted pieces by the end of January. I realize that its not that easy; given the fact that ideas don't come quickly and when I'm so into details, completion takes a large amount of time... Nevertheless, I'll still attempt to do that this month.)

So there you have it.. the stuffs I did in the month January in order to make my dream of becoming a full-time illustrator a reality!

Thank you for reading! I'll be posting what I did for the month of February later.

Keep on working hard~! And keeping the faith of your dreams!

Do something everyday to reach your goal! Don't wait for tomorrow, Start TODAY!

Walking the Dog.

Walking the Dog.

"Are you going out with the dog again?", asks grandma.
"Yes, mama. Just a short while.", replied San San
"Don't you know what time is it? Its already so late! You are always walking the dog so late..Why?!", said Grandma, raising her voice.

"Well......", San San don't know how to reply.

"Walking the dog? Is this even a dog?"
San San had tried to take Mikey out for a walk in the afternoon, but mikey got this nasty habit of gulping up pedestrians along the way. Although it was cute initially, but its getting a little out of hand.

Most recently, Mikey even ate her boyfriends...

"I'll be back in soon." San San finally replied.

==================================
Tools:
lineart in mech. Pencil, colors and inking in Photoshop CS

While drawing this, I had this wicked funny image of Mickey's face. I'm glad I deliver it correctly. Heehee...

Thanks for taking the time to view.

Post-SOYA 09

Hi guys,

SOYA 09 was a wonderful experience. It was my first time displaying artworks live at a booth. So you can imagine the thrill. Its also a great experience getting to know many other members of the Aspiring Mangaka & Writers Club(AMWC). I also get to meet Okita of Imaginary Friends. Zemotion was also there to sell her albums and Kuang Hong's artworks. The whole club learn alot from here, personally I myself also. So we are now geared up for Cosfest which I think is around June. From now till then, I hope to produce more artwork so as to be ready for that event.

Alright, here's something I did for about 2 nights. Hope you guys like it.
