Ang batang si Melvin. haha :)
I started and finish drawing this from the time he called until we hung up. Having no idea that I was doing this while we were talking. haha I kinda’ mess up with the eyes (sorry).
It feels so good when you’re drawing inspiration while being with him. Things get easier. Your hands move involuntarily to do the shades, the outlines and everything goes the way they should be. :)
This is the only gift I can think of as something that can really come only from me. My face is the hardest. I’ve practiced sketching my face a lot of times but still, it didn’t turn out to look like me. Anyway I still feel good about it, ‘cause it’s an achievement to sketch to heads.
"Indeed, no matter how colorful an art work is, it will never look realistic without shading it with black."
While I was doing this, I kind of pondered how tiny details would look real, and I remembered an advise from my friend when she said I need black to make it look realistic. I’m trying to be playful with colors since my forte is sketching with the use of charcoal pencil, pencils and the like, but I really can’t detach my ideas from having vague sides. I made this ‘cause I’m bored, stressed, and I have this strong desire to paint. All my thoughts are diverted to how this piece can be related to life, this entire thing has turned out to be a sort of introspection. A time when I had a moment to think of things.
No matter how colorful life is, there will always be a dark side that will serve as a highlight to make you feel that for you to be able to appreciate what life means you need dull moments, that is, when you feel that the world is pulling you down, the feeling of falling from a curb to an abyss and you’re at the verge of holding on or giving up. Life is a process wherein you have to get all topsy-turvy, because you can never be forever on top. It’ll surely turn you upside down. There will come a time that the world would make you feel how it is like to be at the bottom. That is life itself. Be thankful, it just means you’re alive.
~I actually had an inspiration for this, she’s a painter and I was inspired by her drip painting so I thought of creating my own, since this is my first time to do water color painting. And this woman, just came out from my imagination.
I can do better.
I LOVE THIS PERSON AND HE MEANS EVERYTHING TO ME. <3
how about full bangs and a curly hair?
That’s out of boredom.:D
