Archaeopteryx Hybrid (1hr 31mins Sketch) WIP

This is a continuation of the sketch from this post: 16mins Sketch

After further brainstorming, I decided to change the gender, age and species to a clumsy female youngling. I wanted a challenge. Neither acknowledged by humans nor Archaeopteryx, it has to learn how to live in the dangerous world.

I guess this falls into the survival genre.

It is not easy combining two species that have anatomies from both extreme ends. The way the human joints bend are the exact opposite of how the Archaeopteryx’s joints work in various areas.

More to come…

Week 3’s entry for 52 Project. I wanted to sketch and paint so I decided to do both.

Nothing like good ol’ fashion practice. A  four minutes quick sketch taken with my camera since I no longer have a scanner (I do intend to get one soon!)

Exercise (Practice)



I’m back in the quick sketching game! What better subject to practice but exercise itself?

Throne Of Fire and Blood

Throne Of Fire and Blood

I haven’t drawn for months and was feeling a bit rusty so this is good practice. Featuring Daenerys Stormborn from Game of Thrones, sketched with pencil and finished in Photoshop.

I watch the tv series although I would like to read the book too but since I didn’t have much time nor do I have the books, I’ll stick to watching for the time being.

Who are your favourite characters? Mine’s Daenerys and Bran Stark. Also, check out this theme song by Jason Yang (fell in love with it!):



Nimpus Dimpus (2011)

The problem with being a perfectionist is that I will not post something up until I am satisfied with it. I have learnt to use this to my advantage though. So, please bear with me while I continue working on the new illustration. In the mean time, check out what I found in my stash of art, Nimpus Dimpus!

Nimpus Dimpus

Nimpus Dimpus

It was done in 2011 (2 years ago); I was thinking of improving it since it will be a waste to see the creative ideas left as they are, and probably reduce the file size as I go along with it too – 296mb.

Nimpus Dimpus is the land of dreams and nightmares.

Les Miserables Jean Valjean Quick Sketch

Jean Valjean Quick Sketch 1hr 16mins

A Les Miserables Jean Valjean quick sketch done in 1hr 16mins. I have not sketched with my trusty mechanical pencil for a while so this is good practice. I watched Les Miserables recently and I have to say, I have never cried so much in a movie as such before. Stunning performances, all of them. Just remember to bring tissue boxes with you when you want to watch it.

I went in the cinema not knowing what to expect; well I knew that Anne Hathaway’s going to be in it but she turned out to be a sidekick lol.

On a side note, my illustration’s still ongoing, stalled a bit but I will eventually finish it sooner or later!
