Starting to Get Serious

Photo0628

Hi. This time, I didn’t make another painting. I was wondering of trying other things like sketching people. I’m very bad at painting people. I want to paint them someday but I guess I would start small again and just do some sketching. So this picture below was my schoolmate. She really looked good in that picture and was interested of sketching it :) I hope I could paint it too. But again, I’ll do some sketches first. And didn’t do the hands well. I was thinking of practicing drawing and painting body parts and soon put it all together. So, tell me what you think guys :)

Ribbons, Laces and Buttons

Hi! I practiced painting again just awhile ago. I painted ribbons, laces and buttons because I think painting them would be a challenge for me. And yes, it was. I have to use toothpick and cotton buds in order to do the small details. I think I did alright though :). I’ll just keep practicing to improve more. :)

What do you think of my artwork friends? :)

Violin with Acrylic medium

Violin

Hi Friends! I’ve been practicing my painting skills since May 5, 2012. I think I’m not taking good care of my talent well because its been a year since I stopped painting. I turned to carving and architecture but ignored painting. So I’m going back and I’m practicing it again. I still have the talent. I believe that once you own a talent, you won’t ever lose it. I’m practicing subjects that are hard for me to paint (like last time, I practiced painting furs). This time, I’m practicing painting still objects with acrylic medium. I usually use watercolor but for a change, I’m going to use acrylic so that my skill in painting would improve more.

So, right, I painted a violin. I chose that because of the details in it. I can’t say I painted it perfectly. I’m still practicing. If you look it in person, it looks great but there are still flaws in my painting. I’m sharing this so that I can know your views about my painting and so you can give me friendly comments and advice. So this violin is painted on my practice board (1/8 bainbridge illustration board). It was fun painting this violin but it took me a lot of time.

HOW I PAINTED THE STRINGS:
I painted the strings using tape. I could have used white colored pencil but I forgot to bring it with me to the province. I put tapes on the area where the strings should be painted and it served as a “mask”. The only part where there’s no tape is the string. I painted them white (acrylic) and removed the tape. Then, there it is, a straight line! :)

Practicing Furs

Hello! Hi! So, I’m back to painting, guys! :)

Here it is:

I really painted this because I want to practice painting furs, hairs and such because I’m not that good when it comes to those things. I actually wanted to paint a rabbit but that will be next time. I used two mediums: Acrylic and poster paints. I painted the furs with dry brush. I found out that it takes a lot of time to paint with it but FUN. I used poster paints on the fur and acrylic on the eyes. It’s only a small painting though, 3″ width x 4″ height. It’s been a long time since I painted anything so I started small. This painting looks much beautiful in person and when you view it from a distance. So, what do you think guys?

I’m happy that I’m painting again and I might make some more next time and post it here. Please share your thoughts about this artwork friends :)

Complex House

Rendered Front

Hi! So, here is another project. I know, I told here before that I am just an aspiring architect. I just do designs. I still don’t know if that would really make an effective house. BUT I hope so. So this is a complex house I made in 3 days. I’m so happy to finally made it.

Its best Feature is may be INDOOR GARDEN. If you could see, the indoor garden has stairs to the rooftop. The roof deck is huge but it could be a continuation of the indoor garden.

Here is the plan of the House:

Classic One

Front View

Hi guys and gals!  I made a new architectural structure. This one is actually a restaurant. It’s very classy and suitable for big kinds of event like debuts, promenades and many more. This one I made is intended to be romantic as well that’s why it looked like this. If I put more plants like vines and other beauty instruments in here, it would be perfect!

WHAT DO I UNDERSTAND ABOUT A ROMANTIC STRUCTURE?

It should be colored red, pink, or yellow. Also, There should be many plants. There should be outdoor lights and the style should be classic with touch of modern like European Style. What do I imagine when I hear the word, “romantic”? Romeo and Juliet Balcony. This is the first one I thought about so I put two balconies there. Also, it should have arcs on windows. And the light should be yellow but not necessarily. That was just my point of view.

So here is the interior, I didn’t much focus on the interior, But there should be chandeliers and other light sources. If there was a mosaic, If you watched the movie “tangled” and saw the flower mosaic, that would be perfect. There are also two kitchens for the interior is so big to serve all people. Of course, the restroom is also there, but I didn’t put one! Haha! I forgot. There are still many other spaces for restrooms so there isn’t so much problem. I put a balcony inside with no stairs intentionally, Those are only just designs and way to clean windows.

So, that’s it! Hope you like it!
