The Dark Knight Rises Quick Sketch (34mins)

Dark Knight Rises Quick Sketch (34mins)

I finally watched The Dark Knight Rises today. The movie has a few kinks here and there but it was epic nevertheless. Initially, I was going to sleep  going to do other stuff but decided to do a super quick sketch of Batman today (34mins). He was too emo in the movie so I decided to draw him at happier times.

Captured this image from my sketchbook with my camera.

An idea/sketch I’m working on (epic attack of smiley faces). Might be completed two days later or so. Down with flu now, rats, cannot stop sneezing, almost finished a whole tissue box D:

I watched the London Olympics 2012 opening ceremony two days ago and was fascinated with the lighting of the torchlight. What’s your favourite Olympic sport? I like most of them but some of my favourites are archery, badminton, basketball and basically all the sports that require fighting with one another 😛

Wow, the image compression for WordPress is huge..not to mention that most of the details are either blurry, gone or crap quality. Well, anyways, this is the illustration I was talking about. It’s my second illustration painted directly in Photoshop without initial sketching and planning, yup, made on the go. I enjoyed this method though and may be using it more often in the future.

FYI, the guy in the image is the puppet and yes, he is on stage. A better resolution and quality is available at my website.

This was not the initial sketch/ illustration I had in mind for today but that is quite heavy artwork and will be covered in detail when I do actually post that one.  This is my first sketch done in Illustrator without any reference. I ended up wasting a lot of time adjusting the brush size and erasing since I am still quite new to Illustrator but better late than never. For this sketch, I intended to give Garfield a lazy and dumb look and yeah, not intending to follow the original design exactly. Enjoy!


Wild Mild Child Sketch

First of all, I apologise for not being able to sketch anything today since I was quite busy. Instead, here’s a work-in-progress done for my illustration, Wild Mild Child.

I used BoA as a reference for the sketch but altered the illustration to fit my image of how pop art is like. For further details, check it out at my portfolio.

Note: This sketch was done 2 years ago. For the next post (or some future post), I am going to resketch an old sketch and compare them to see how much progress I made (if any lol). So, stay tuned!

Why did you cut me down? But don’t worry. I’m ok.

I’ve re-pieced myself from roses. I’m ok.

Unaware passersby, I’ve eaten them. It’s ok.

They’re my roses, my beautiful hair. It’s ok.

You’ve awaken my beauty. It’s ok.

See (Two fingers representing eyes), Speak (Fist representing closed mouth), Hear (Two fingers representing ears) No Evil Sketch. My scanner and internet (yes, ugh-uber-crap connection again) were giving me problems so I took a picture of my sketch. Yes, I like finding ways to show off my new sketchbook. LOL. Kidding.

I hate drawing hands..so I drew hands. No, I am not a masochist, I thought it would be good to practice on something I usually would not like to draw. I used my own hands as reference but made them more macho :p The actual sketch looks better than the captured sketch in this perspective but I enjoyed drawing this anyway so it was a nice surprise.
