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.

#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. 😀

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.  🙂

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. !!

**Seriously, I am proud of myself.Not only that I regularly updated my blog, but also I managed to complete the 29 Faces Challenge.
I know that I am very ambitious for participating this, since I am not much of an artist and very rarely involved something artistic. Somehow, I want to do something new and challenge myself in different area. This is the result.
Though my work not as good as others, but hey.. I got to start somewehere, right?

**Oh, I got a new niece today. She supposed to meet us on 15 March, but she was impatient. Well, actually, my sister felt few small contraction last night. So this morning she went to hospital. The initial check-up result worrying the doctor because the baby’s heartbeat was dropped and unstable. Hence the doctor advised for operation. Alhamdullillah, both safe. The baby has no name yet, born 2.5 kg, looks like his father. I haven;t took any photo, so I’ll post later. 😀

It’s funny, to me, that I was behind not because of lack of works to be posted but because of the internet. I was busy at office, and the connection in the house was too bad that I cannot upload even a small file.

** Lately, the weather was really hot. Every night, I woke up in the middle of the night, sweating. And knowing me, it was hard to get back to sleep. Ended up, lack of sleep and constant headache. What made the matter worse, the air-cond in the office was in ‘extreme cold’ temperature. This alternate of extreme hot and extreme cold, adding with lack of sleep and headache, making me felt like I am about to get cold and flu. Hope not.
