Bit of waffling, don't mind me too much :) But before that -
I've got one, huge, major problem with something at the moment. Well, several things, but this is the major one.
When it comes to describing my art pieces... I get stuck. Actually, stuck is the wrong word, my drawings are usually super personal. I'm a private person when it comes to deep-down feelings, so I wouldn't really want anyone to know the reasons behind the subject matter etc. Besides the building scenes, I'll be more than happy to tell you everything, even with lengthy background stories :) It's usually the sensual female subjects that are more personal to me.
Or maybe I suck at explaining full stop :L (You should come and see me trying to explain my work in design tutes.) I'm pretty okay once I know what I'm going to say/practice/know my design inside and out... but that's lots of preparation in general.
I think I just need to step it up in communication wise, for both visual and literal.

So IncStamp had another exhibition! (Yes, already passed the opening night,) to be 100% honest, I didnt really stick with the theme too much, more like I did a rendition/my own interpretation/just a litttle bit modernized version of a famous painting...BEEECause, I honestly could not think of ANYTHing!! And man, when I'm busy, Im super busy to the point that I hardly got any decent amount of sleep for the past 3 weeks... man I'm going to age horribly :/
But anyways, lets start chronologically!
I got inspired to do this particular piece by Alphonse Mucha's 'Study of the Moon and the Stars' (you know how much I like glowing shizz and space/stars. Way too much.)
My 'remixed' version is of 'Amanogawa', a Japanese word for Milky Way (and also Prunus serrulata - Japanese Cherry. The flowers looks like pompoms, so cute :3 But yeah, but the colour palatte decided after seeing these flowers/trees)
...more description to come!
Bit of WIPs :) This is actually pretty interesting since the watercolour stage and digital stage...is COMPleeetely different. I need to skill it up in watercolouring before I could even think of doing something like I did with the digital version!
The set up, but I only ended up using the palettes and the pencils
Forgot how to watercolour!!! It was mega hard. I really need to practice this again!!
I was planning on making it simple, but then this happened so I ended up adding too much blue after this.
The line art was actually okay, very light and fluffy. But I think the look it has now goes more with the theme (ahaha or atleast thats my excuse :P)
Before, and after a little bit of stardust.
Lied, a LOT of stardust. Photoshop stardust.

Maaan its the 100th post! (the day has finally arrived huh?) I'm going to edit this a little later, in a bit of a rush to write up the wip process for the new illustration for IncStamp's newest piece :/
*Sudden Clarity Clarence of the day*
You know what's funny? Last year, I was holding myself back on so many opportunities because I thought I needed better and fresher art/illustration for every single exhibitions...
But turns out, all I've been doing up to this point is showcasing what I've been doing for the past 3 years (I mean, I only had 1 new original at the RAW show, everything else was oldies - nothing better orrr fresh about that.) And I guess it wasn't too much of a disaster like I thought it might turn out to be.
Those "don't wait for tomorrow" quotes are pretty darn true. No point waiting for 'tomorrow' to come up with better work, I think it's as important to just the trust the past works and just go on with the present. Specifically when you're a little worry-wort like me :3

...okay, so this actually was for Andrej Pejic's tshirt challenge D:
I KNOW, I wasn't planning on drawing a comical/pop version of colourful Lestat either, I just couldn't justify myself with the drawing I was planning to do! I'll do it one day, but I just finished this up anyways since it was already inked.
(Agh, makes me sick just looking at it too)
In other news, I have amazing friends.
I have two exhibitions coming up.
Shall update a post with more details, but ciao for now xx
