Today's topic is 'real'. The idea behind this drawing is it seems to me that different mirror reflects different image. I mean 'me' in the mirror at home looks a bit different from 'me' in the mirror in somewhere else. I may look fat and dark in the bathroom's mirror at home but look very beautiful in shop's fitting room's one.
I know that it depends on width and shape of the mirrors and lighting in each place is different and maybe some other factors I don't know. It just occurs to me that I know I exist but I don't really know how exactly I look for real...
Not sure if I make it clear enough. Just my thought though :)
Here are the drawings for my 365 days I draw challenge. The topic of the above one is 'brilliant' and it's brilliant Christmas! :D
Below are the set of day-3 drawing, 'lush'. It's one drawing but I realized that it could be separated into 2 pieces too!
Those who have been here before might have known that I participated in an art challenge called AEDM2010 and did a whole book of The Sketchbook Project 2011. These two things made me focused on drawing for some time. Now I have to say I miss the feeling of waking up in the morning and have a habit of searching for ideas to draw. It has something to do with pride too. When you finish something even the smallest ones each day, you feel proud and useful somehow.
Then I came across a post of Stephanie's about daily doodles challenge and I thought it's time for another challenge to get me back to drawing habit. So, here it is my '365 days I draw' challenge!
I will try to stick to topics as much as I can but may not be able to post it here everyday. I already promised to myself though that I will make it my everyday habit to draw. The goal is to help me focus more on my art and learn to get me out of the box, to constantly think in creative way.
And here is my very first drawing. The topic, which I follow Stephanie's, is 'night'
However, after I finished drawing this, I realized I still did the same thing as I had done before. I need to learn more about creating stories and working on backgrounds. So I did another sketch here :
This may look a bit strange but I drew this based on the initial drawing and tried creating a sentence to make a story which is "She dances with the Star in the night of shining moon"
What do you think of my two sketches? I enjoy doing this and just hope I can make it through the whole project!
So, It's December already. The month of celebration, the month of thinking about the past and planning for the future. It seems to me though that December is actually a pause period for working. Everybody is busy thinking about parties, gifts and family reunion. I especially love the cool breeze in the morning and the sky looks clearer and more beautiful than in other seasons :)
And good weather really affects my mood for art :D Above is a gift card designed for MerryDay's Christmas card set. The illustration is actually a blown-up version of my Christmas Girl's hat which I drew last year.
Last year I did this girl as an e-card and postcards for my friends, didn't make it for sale but this year I'm still in love with her, so how about making her a small gift card ? and since I cannot find small envelope, I also make its envelope by hand with kraft paper :)
I love making things in set, making Christmas Girl gift tags seems like a good idea :) I love the red wine and pumpkin orange ribbon, don't you?
As if it's not enough... sometimes designing stationery set is like a game for me, I can keep on thinking about it, make it big, make it grow... Here another tag design, Red M and snowman Christmas gift tags :) Just love the red Christmas color! My friend told me that the letter M looked cute and reminded her of cookies. it's just like a compliment somehow :D
