Take risks. Take chances. Don’t be afraid. The other road is a boring one.

I admit that I suck at drawing realistic things, but hey, I’m working on it! Here are two illustrations I did for my lola and my friend. HAHA. I still have to improve on my watercolor skills and I’m so happy because I have the entire sem break to work on that!!!

Here’s my attempt to draw more “mature” looking creatures. I know that I do kinda suck at anatomy (i hate Science anyway) and realism is not really my thing haha but I still like how this turned out, even though it was a fail attempt to draw some real life looking humans for once. Maybe I’ll practice some more during the sembreak!
On another note, I’m really really busy these days because I have tons of school work! Papers I need to write, tests I have to study for and orals which I haven’t prepared for yet!! If you’re wondering why I still find the time to draw, then here’s the answer: I just like to procrastinate, a lot.

09.14.13: Not feeling good.

I didn’t go to class today (disclaimer: i’m not a bad student!) because I woke up with a messed-up stomach and a heavy head. HUHU, I don’t know if it’s because of the lack of sleep (it’s the final month for school) or is it because of something I ate yesterday. My Accounting prof doesn’t check attendance anyway but the problem is, I have to read the book since I don’t have any notes for today’s lecture. *sigh

Lying down on my bed the entire morning just bummed me out because I’m not used to NOT DOING ANYTHING. So i got up, took out my sketch pad and did some painting, which I’m still trying to get a hand of because seriously, I find watercolors very hard to work with! (SPOT THE FAIL ATTEMPT TO PAINT A CARROT)

I wanted to give you guys a tutorial on how I do my illustrations but I’m still really really busy with school so here’s an overview on how I do my drawings! As you can see, everything starts with the basic linear! Then I fill it with flat colours, add some shadows and highlights, put some extra details (because I’m extremely OC when it comes to these things) and then finally, add the text and textures!
