Portrait Sketch

All of my portraits have a lot of shading, so this was an attempt at as little as possible. Done in 2011.

It's been a Year

Wow, it's been a year since my last post! Don't worry, I've still been doing art here and there - but I don't have as much time as I used to.

So what have I been up to? I've drawn 2 portraits [one is still incomplete, I haven't decided how to finish it yet], as well as customized my own flats. I've also drawn two characters from Up! for fun. Pictures will be slowly uploaded - but I'll try my best! :)

Gel Pen Eyes

Done! I decided to keep them black and white, since it seemed to be more striking that way. To be honest though I only really like the right eye...the left seems a bit off. Unfortunately I can't erase any of it and re-do it, but overall it turned out well!

A Korean nine-tailed fox, the Gumiho is known as a trickster and scary monster. However, a recent Korean drama - My Girlfriend is a Gumiho - has made light of the fables surrounding this story and turned it into a comedy. Here is my take on the Gumiho - two quick doodles and 6 little Gumihos playing on their name.

Character Sketches

I like the kitty the best...
but take a guess as to what each animal is! Put your guesses in the comments section and I'll get back to you if you're right or not!


This is a quick 4-part sketch I did while at school. It's an attempt at storyboarding, though I realize that this is nowhere near what professionals do, and is in reality for like a comic than anything. I'm going to the library to borrow some books, so I'll improve quickly!

NOTE: start at the bottom right corner and work left, then to the top right corner, then left again. I know it's presented in the wrong order...but I drew the last sketch first before I decided to continue the idea.

Portland Metro Scholastic Award

I won the Silver Key Award for my portrait! I entered this just for fun [I'd only recently heard about the competition before the submission deadline], and was ecstatic to find out that I'd won an award! This competition is held annually in the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards program, which is sponsored by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers.
