Family Portraits II

And the last one. :] A portrait of my little sister. This looks rather traditional unlike the one before. :D

Family Portraits

:D I'm back. I made a portrait of my big brother.

He doesn't like it much though. :P Of course, I used reference for his facial features but the lighting is all from my head. Dude doesn't get many well-lighted photographs taken. :/

Not the powerpuff girls

I was drawing a few nights ago and thought I should try some hair-renders. Once I started, I loved it. ^_^ It has been a while since I drew hair like this.

When I colored them, I tried giving them colors that suited their moods. Still, I don't like the pink one.

Goodbye baby goodbye

It has been some time since I seriously colored a drawing and put it up here, my fault. I've been listening to K-Pop a lot this month (last month I was listening to Arabic Pop) and when I was coloring this sketch MissA's Goodbye Baby was playing in the background. So I ended up calling this blogpost by the same name. ^_^

I was pretty rough with the drawing. :/ But I like how it turned out because lately I haven't had much faith in my ability to draw. :D More coming!

Queen Land

I've been trying to organize myself better while I color my drawings in PS. the arrangement of layers, etc. In that process, I ended up coloring two queens that I had sketched. Here they are:

The first queen is styled after the Mughal rulers of India (mostly based on a film I saw over the weekend). The second was inspired by the Ottoman way of dressing brides. I had no reference picture for an Ottoman queen, somehow. The comparison helped me see how different cultures interpret beauty. Whereas the Turkish style is bold on the colors and the use of jewellery, the Mughals were much more subtle and gave attention to detail, you could say. I had a lot of fun making this.

I don't even know where I'm going with this now

But I'll keep moving. ^_^

Have had some days off so I made these:

First time I ever colored water. :)

Something for Valentine's Day.
So I'm watching this new series called Young Justice which is awesome. Its a little like ATLA as far as animation's concerned. Kinda inspired me. ^_^

Long time again

I had exams again. But I think I'm free now. 

Anyway, I'm still trying to warm up to drawing and coloring once again. While I struggle with this phase, here's what I tried doing and kinda failed.

 And I'm reading the Spenser detective series by Robert B Parker. He describes his characters in such an interesting way that I wanted to draw them. So below is Bradford W Forbes, his first ever client. This is from The Godwulf Manuscript.

I liked it sketchy. So I didn't clean it. :D
