29FacesSept2014b

As I mentioned in the last post, I didn’t successfully created 29 faces works. I am disappointed but at the same time I am still happy with the works that I managed to complete.
Here is the final batch of Sept 2014 29 Faces Challenge.

Link to Ayala page 29Faces.

* Still not good at shading but I think a bit better than before. Well, I had few practices unlike when I was in February.

*New this time: I used oil pastel in more than 2 works. That is a big deal to me because I really cannot handle oil pastel. Hard to control, not a sharp point and number 1 challenge, very messy. I saluted those who chose oil pastel as their favourite medium.

Till next time. Jya ne..

 

****note:not really sure actually if this due on 29 Sept or 30 Sept. Anyway…

Next batch – Faces #5 onwards.

Though I managed to find some times to draw, sadly, I can’t take time to post. Weird. I thought drawing and painting would be the tougher task.
The reason, No time to make a post and when I got time, the network decided to fail me.
Uploading pics was really challenging.
Anyway, here is the next batch.

#5 Using watercolor.

#6 Fully water color again. This was inspired by a character by Murasakibara from Kuroko no Basuke. Murasakibara was crying when he lost a match against Kuroko. Murasaki is purple in Japanese hence the hair color.

#7. Pencil sketch. actually I sketched this before #5 and #6. But I wasn’t sure how the finishing should be. In the end I left it as a sketch only.

#8. Random sketch. I used copics to color the hair and glass frame. I’m not sure who was this guy. πŸ™‚

#9. I called her Aunty Anne. Colored with oil paster and pencil color. Oil pastel on the face. I mixed using fingers to get smoother surface.

#10. Random pencil sketch again.

#11. My attempt to sketch my hairless niece. She loves to ‘eat’ her hand. And here she still trying to eat her hand. She still too young to understand you are not supposed to eat your hand but eat with your hand. πŸ˜€

#12. Full pencil color. A girl with colorful turban.

Few more to go. Will post the final batch tomorrow.
Sadly this time around, I didn’t manage to produce 29 faces as I did last February. I am still happy with the result.

*edited: last night the page didn’t properly displayed after I posted. Therefore, I didn’t realize some of the photo need to be rotated.Β  πŸ™‚

Faces – #3 -#4.

Next batch. Though I am happy with the result but sadly I cannot do justice to the works I’ve done with this photos. I cannot get the correct setting so that the photo giving the real colors and shading. 😦

Face #3 – copic marker and oil pastel

Face #4 – totally oil pastel. i was a bit reluctant to try this oil pastel or crayon because I always made a mess of it. same with this time. the green background was a counter measure because after finished with the hair, i realized the messy red accidental background. that was why i added the green. πŸ™‚

29 Faces Challenge – Second Try – Startto

The 29Faces challenge by Ayala Art is here again. I participated the February one. It was challenging because I was just started in this artsy thingy. Started drawing, sketching, painting. Started to get to know different medium and techniques.

Very ambitious of me. I didn’t expect to create a complete 29 pieces. Surprisingly I did. I was proud of myself and I don’t really care about the quality. I was not very talented one and still not. But it was something fun to try, as long as I didn’t overcriticized myself and overstressed with the need to finish the 29 pieces. I was going easy and experimenting this and that.

I haven’t decided whether to join the September challenge. Not because I have already lost interest but simply I am busy with work. Usually after office hours, reached home, my idea of finishing the day was taking shower, late supper and sleep.

That said, I felt like not complete if I didn’t participate. So I decided to have a go. Hopefully I can create few pieces even not the complete 29 faces.
Best of luck, Anna. !!

Ending the August..

**Note**
This was supposed to be posted last Sunday. But I was not sure what happened, it failed to post even after 3 trials.
Since I’ve already has the entry, and even though it was past August, I posted today.
**End-Note**
Sunday was a special day. It was my country’s 57th Independent Day. Lot of fireworks. Since I was at my hometown, so most fireworks I can only hear not see. The big ones I can only watched in television. If I were at my house, I can clearly see the fireworks everywhere. But still since the tragedy of #MH17, the national celebration was not as big as we always had. Just fireworks and marching in the national stadium. Previous years, we had open houses, concerts, traditional events and stuff.For me not a really big lost. At least we can use the budget to different thing. Unless the ministers put the extra money in their own pockets, then I’ll get angry.

Anyway, back to the end-of-month list.

Happening:
1. Still in Eid mood. Lots of open houses. That means lots of food. And that means, I gained back few grams that I lost during fasting month. πŸ™‚
2. My father came to KL for the medical check-up. Follow up of the last month knee-infection operation. So again another family gathering.
3. On 15th, new niece. Named Keisya Zara, was born early few days than the original due date. Welcome to the family! That means I have 3 new nieces this year. So far. πŸ˜‰

keisya
4. My eldest sister contacted with the dangerous dengue fever. Then later her son. But her son got it worst than her. They both spent about 2 weeks of daily check-up and blood test. Plus each was admitted 2-3 days in the hospital at different time. Quite bad.
5. Spring cleaning half of my closet. Yes, half-only. Because I need spaces if I want to clean all. So will continue in Spetember. I hope. πŸ™‚
6. The highlight of the month. A housemate left the house. Sadly this has became a bad experince. It happened that the girl I thought stayed at my house was actually already moved out and found a replacement. However, this new girl after 2 weeks, decided she didn’t like the house and moved out without telling any of us and while we were away for a long Eid holiday. That means we (2 of remaining housemates) have to bear the rent and bills for August since no deposit passed to us. So we were desperate for new housemate/s. It was not easy because the previous girl (the second last) still has her stuff in the house, and created a mess. Secondly, we don’t have the luxury of washing machine, cabel TV and internet which limits the candidate especialy the working ladies. Ended, we got 2 univ students which still young and don’t mind the lack of stuff. Hope this ones can stay longer and wont create trouble.

Bought:
1. Bought a car. Well.. Actually I bought and got the car end of July. Sadly, until now, I haven’t really drove it yet since I was planning to take driving-refreshing class. It was hard to find driving school that provide this class. I knew a few did before but they don’t have it anymore.
2. Not for me but few stuff as souvenirs for my collegues at Sydney. Glad that they love it.

Read:
1. Fast Track – Julie Garwood – finally finished this and the review already posted here
2. Bombshell – Catherine Coulter – no review yet
3. Final Target – Iris Johansen – no review yet
4. Firestorm – Iris Johansen – no review yet

Hope to do but don’t:
1. Driving class – simply because I have no weekend to spare

Work-related:
1. Work-related – BUSY again! from the same government projects.
2. My new boss from Sydney came for a visit and get to know us. It was nice to finally meet her since before this we can only hear her voice via teleconference. She is a sweet and chatty lady. This is my first time I have a lady boss in my entire career. Refreshing I would say. Good? No comment yet.

My hopes and expectation for September:
1. Better budget thingy.
2. Do the thing in the list of β€˜Hope to do but don’t’.
3. Reading more of the books that keep collecting dust on the shelves.
4. Post more of my so-called artwork. Maybe participating 29Faces challenge like I did in February.

I was blessed with good health in August. Though few of my family member not as lucky. Nothing big happened except that lots of Eid gathering, meaning food and food everywhere.
