Inspired by this article from BBC: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-15717341

David Cameron’s hair was surprisingly hard to draw! (See the eraser marks making a grey fuzz on his head in the third doodle.)

Nothing but summer rain

with 2 comments

Doodle from a month or two ago (have lost track of this concept of Time) and colourified in…1 hour/2 hours? *marvels at procrastinating ability*

currently loving this deep dusty red/brown/pink colour. Need to learn to be braver with colours (but it is just so much quicker and more fun to just doodle in pencil).

Jude again — I don’t think she had blue hair before this, now I realise it looks nice (well anything can look nice in a picture I guess) and kind of suits her. So, Jude is a small-time musician (without really big aspirations for fame) and the title of this post comes from the song she is singing. I draw her more than Ted because guys’ hair is hard to draw. T_T But I should pay him more attention because his story is actually a bit more interesting.

curious snail

The snail that I mentioned doodling some posts ago:

Yes, remarkable, I know. Snails are really hypnotic to watch sometimes… There are a lot of them in the rainy season so I have to watch where I step.

shameless cat

Finally, doodles from 2011! Earlier around September/October:

Drawings based on a real cat! When Denise and I slept over at Suhui’s house (shortly after she just came back from London) a stranger cat came into the house. I dubbed it Shameless Cat because it started trespassing, going around the house, sniffing and climbing at things, at one point even surveying the walls. It stayed sat and stayed with us for a while as we watched a sad Japanese movie but eventually it left without warning.

My old scanner had been malfunctioning for a while but this week the printer also started going mad, refusing to accept the ink cartridge (which had been working for the last few weeks!). So my dad being the one who magically fixes all things technical, solved both problems by getting a printer equipped with a flatbed scanner. (He said he bought it because it was only $59. HA HA my dad the shopper.) It turns out the scanning quality is not bad at all. Just hoping that this printer will last longer than the last one!
