I needed a break from digital art and went back to the basics; traditional. I love acrylics and oil painting, but canvasses are not accessible as much as papers, hence watercolor is the closest friend.
these are my old drawings from a FoodPorn series I did, but I tweaked them using my new handy watercolor box. These were unfinished until now.
Watercolor painting is personal therapy. Solace and zen. Meditation. 🧘♀️😌 And hunger 🍔🍨🍩. (digital art somehow disrupts my eyes and numbs my fingers with long hours). Will practice more to improve my skills, to be honest, i ain’t satisfied yet in terms of achieving realism. but i like them all. 🙂

Just another Valentine greeting in yo feed. Exclusive to couples: from a happy single (ehem **cough), wishing you all the best and enjoy the cringe-filled – – i mean– cupid-filled day. 😚💐🌹🎈 — (but heart’s day is every day) : )
Radiate boundless love towards the entire world – above, below, and across – unhindered, without ill will, without enmity. – Buddha
I am keeping it real and raw. ALL drawings had been based on imaginations. but with faces study, i need a reference… i need exposures and practice so one day I won’t need it anymore. Oh boy, i thought it would be less anxious but with references, I feel sick not rendering the exact replica or at least 80% of it. —- but i thought about my “why” here; it should be to study faces and not to copy ref’s faces. — i should keep going! 🙂
I enjoyed this study. My weakness is the nose part, to be honest. While others find eyes and lips complex, mine has always been the nose bridge the entire of it. but sooner I’ll get the hang of it with practice. perhaps the lips I can improve more and the cheekbones? Will see, but I really enjoyed the journey. Thank God. — Swipe for the video:
I want to improve and be, what I think is, “the best” in my craft. This is my 2019 mantra. I’ve been in many streams before being a “multi-passionate” (education, sales, marketing, media) but going back to my first love: the arts is the best decision I’d made. Our love affair didn’t end. In between my stints in many fields, I used my creativity to excel and survive. Just that now, it’s full-time, hence I can practice and do more.
Whew! after participating in a Draw This in Your Style Challenge, what else to draw? hence, my nephew challenged me … “draw me a ninja!”, he quipped! “plus background“, he added. Oh dear, challenge accepted!! thy wish is my command! 🙂
I truly enjoyed making this Ninja, and I love Japanese styles. still want to edit some things such as highlighting more the details of the subject, but I’m keeping an hour work daily, coz perfectionism sucks and delays. I’ll leave this for a week and come back to see if it’s still a beauty! 😛 — Swipe for the process video:
