I hope you guys enjoyed the holidays but unfortunately I’m stuck at home due to my illness. Haha! I guess I just partied to much that I got a soar throat, runny nose and a headache. Ouch! Nevertheless I won’t spoil my holidays sleeping like a cat but I’ve made some progress with unfinished artworks. Like what the title says, I want to end my 2012 with good memories. So I’ve posted some artworks that I plan to finish before the clock strikes 2013~ Happy New Years everyone!
Close up line art shot of my old entry and I even named the character, Octopus hair. It was really funny because I was just experimenting on my hair once and it turned out like this. So I just said, hey that’s a good hair style for my character but not for me ♥
This is my favorite artwork for this month! Since the character’s fashion style is similar to mine! Haha! Actually, if you know me personally, my fashion style consists of comic colors and raving pop art prints. People say that my color selection is too loud and that they think I’m lost in the Pop art era. Haha so anyways! I used the usual pen inks .05 to 8 and Sharpies. The hair is countor-ed lightly but my doodle is heavy with a point 3 ink. I figured that doodles should have thicker lines to bring out a pop art/ graffiti feel ♥
Check out the close up look of my recent illustration of Topshop. The hair lines are the hardest to draw and it requires a lot of pressure control with the pen. Sometimes I make mistakes with it and I repeat the process with a .05 ink just to “even-out” the pressure.
Here’s a late post of my line art of Lydia Paek from ONE OF A KIND Music Video. The toughest part of this work was her hair. I’m not really used with drawing a bun style/ rock chic hair style but I think I pulled it off. Plus! The Chrome Hearts rings were really a challenge because I couldn’t shadow them correctly because of the small space!
