Happy New Year!

And just like that, another year has passed. Wow. Time sure flies.
The first art is a tribute to our 2011. Hopefully we will have another nice year. :-)
The second one is an angel by the river. I wanted to finish an art on January 1 and I successfully did it! :-D And I have two art. I hope this is a good omen. Happy 2011! :-)

Christmas tree of sequences

The Cartesian plane, Fibonacci sequence, Collatz Conjecture and Binary Numbers all in one pine tree. If you can identify which is which then you are kind of awesome ;-)

there's a secret code somewhere there :-)

So...I needed something to get my mind off of anything... and since it's Christmas and I was challenged by the unsolved Collatz Conjecture I decided to make this crazy tree. I wish I could make it look better, really. But oh well... Merry Christmas.

Black & White Era

:D Heys. I'm back? So Soon? Noooooo? Really?


So I've been busy with this project of ours. It's a colouring-interactive story book thingy with the words of the big G (code name). Here are some of the art I made for the book:

More from my design principle class...

First Plate - Lines (Dominant: zigzag and diagonal)
It's a bit dark because our camera is gay, but oh well. I like this one because of the border. The girl over the pointy diamond thing is really dramatic, so I kind of don't like that. But I guess it's okay. The shading in the crystals is chaotic... I mean, I've never even seen how diamonds are shaded, so I guess that's my fault for not researching or...something.

Second plate - Shape (Dominant: Abstract)
This looked way better in the drafts... Then again, I think everything looks better in the drafts. But really, I like the draft better. It was more free. Drawing abstract in a big 'ole plate is scary. You can get lost in it. I'm also blaming my bad shade on becoming lost in it. :D!
Bottom line? I liked this better when I was making it. It just looks so messy... I should put more effort in these things.

Third Plate - Pop Art
I like sheep. But this, here, is a ram sheep. It still has "sheep" in it, though. So... Yeah. Studying colour. I hate oil pastels. I should study that more, too. I can't freakin' control it. :(

Midterms - Global Christmas
The fail-iest fail in the history of fails. :( I'm surprised I got an 80 for this. Made without a draft or any sense of using an oil pastel. How sad. Really sad. the people (can anyone even see them?) look like souls... that's the only thing I like.

Updated version of the T-shirt I made. This one, I think, is better. :-) I'm really proud of it! :D That's a picture of me wearing it, by the way. I cropped it face is a precious precious piece of privacy.

Fourth Plate - Space
So far, my favourite plate. But it got the worst grade... Hm... Oh well, I still think it's nice. I finally understood (a bit) on how to control the freakin' oil pastel. It has a nice fell, I think.

I have two more plates to go for our design principle class. The fifth is still with my professor, while the sixth is till in progress. :-9 I'll post them up here when I have time.

Fifth Plate -

We had to do a pattern that would repeat. I also challenged myself to put something in the negative. It was challenging, alright. I envisioned this plate to have, like, lots of people walking around. I wanted it to seem like a busy crowd. The people were supposed to be smaller than this so that they would appear many, but I got lazy. I coloured one of the men with a purple attire because I also wanted to give it a concept of individuality.

Sixth Plate - Optical Art

I'm pretty happy about this one :-). I initially planned to colour it in with blue and green, but I didn't have those colours... so i was stuck with a candy cane. It looks just about ready to eat, no? I also wanted it to seem like a goblet, or an auditorium with stairs and things... I feel like falling down on it.

Hang 'em high

This is the shirt I designed during my design principle class. The professor told us to let the music inspire us, and I was listening to My Chemical Romance, thus the bloody gun outcome. I think it looks cool... though most disagree. I'm going to add a bit more brown or golden bronze here and there, later on.

Made with acrylic and random flickering effect.

scratch #1

doodles on my soon-to-be adopted daughter... and her two friends. I shall draw more of them once I grasp the chance. :-)

In bed...

This is, by far, the most time consuming art I've ever done... even though it looks so simple.
This was born when I heard the song "When a heart breaks", and just because I felt like drawing this certain character (Tamaqui Winogradski).

As I kept drawing him, the art became sort of experimental. I played around and studied the male body and lighting condition. This was done in computer. No paper, pencil or scanner. Just the computer.

I pretty much like it since it's probably the only sexy art I've ever completed. :-)

*EDIT* I added the "Naked" version ;-)

An angel :D

An angel! Just because I'm feeling religious right now. This is a product of listening to the boys' choir "Libera" too much. But who cares? I love their voices and their songs are graceful. :-)
I love the song "I will sing forever"... It gave birth to this little angel right here.

floral and ice

New art! Wheew! I'm on a roll :D
So these are Paris and Saki respectively. The first one is just a practice thing, since I changed with the skin and hair and all. The second one is the product of the coldness of my room, and the coming of October. I'm having problems with eyes. Ugh. Annoying.
