some portraits

Some of you might be wondering why all of the sudden I fell in love with pastel. Well, that's because everybody in the class started using it! I struggle for a couple weeks with watercolor and finally drown myself in the river with the rest of the class...

quick charcoal sketches on cloth

My charcoal drawings definitely improved over the semester, yet i still don't get along with them...these are from my figure class, each about 20-30 minute long on newsprint

pastel practice

Wasting money on the cheap pastel and this drawing turns out quite disappointing,  now looking to get a better set of nupastel

first try on pastel

tomb design for modern china

So I was asked to design a tomb for my Modern China class. I REALLY DON'T WANT ONE, but I did this for fun anyway. The electricity part is probably not gonna work, someone with a better brain might figure out a plan, but I'm done with it. It's suppose to be more Chinese style, now it's more like a mix cause I was looking at a lot of European references...The budget of this thing is around the price of an Apply company, or 100 years of ringling's tuition.

Think I have so much fun with pencil, now that I should probably try something else, like ink?

     A drawing from FEWS, long pose, about 2 to 3 hours long

Sea Otter

     Can't remember the last time I spend so long on a drawing. This took me about an entire night, without stopping. I was working very late in the night, with just a desk lamp, by the end I didn't even bother to try the other colors, so the lower half and the left is basically done in like 5 colors. I used a lot of white in this drawing, white color pencil does not work well at all. I have to switch to white chalk in order to get a white that really pops. Sadly white chalk doesn't work too well with color pencils once you covered the area with wax. The last thing I have to do is using acrylic. The lightest white areas are the ones I painted. I realize that I should not have picked anything with white fur, especially on toned paper, I had to put down the white first to set a base and then somehow OUTLINE the contour of the furs, it gets very annoying. With regular hair all you do is follow the hair line and be free, I just love people with straight long dark hair, they are like the best things to draw. But this sea otter is white, and WET, so I was like the entire time....

My strokes become a bit too violent over the years (I used to draw very very very carefully), if you saw my cat or hamster you may realize the difference. You can't look too closely on this one. Talking about how I beat the hell out of this drawing, my easel is literally SHAKING, it fell to the ground...I had to hold it to keep this poor thing in place. I could go on forever about this process, I was doing so much things at once, music, anime, shows, a bit facebook all that...

animal drawings

If you don't know me, I'm obsessed with cats, up to a degree that I think cat should rule the society. If you have a cat and I know you well I will come to your house EVERY SINGLE DAY. Things with furs generally falls in my favor, so I draw them frequently. Color pencils are great for animal drawings by the way, I used pastel paper with white charcoal, sometimes I use acrylic for the highlight too, they work well together.

this one was done years ago, in high school, you can tell the different line quality from the other too. I used cheap pencil and I hated it. I'm using prismacolor now, it works much better. Good artists should be equipped with good quality tools, keep that in mind

hand animation

Animation class 220, below are the clips I did for the hands, I animated more, but...I don't really like the other ones I did. So this animation is about 4 minutes long, called Pinky Promises (obviously) directed by Emily Crosby with the help of Mary Katherine Short (MK), the story is about...why don't you go see it yourselves? PS: I will remember the nights I spent at the labs. I love those tablets, and the sunrises too. 

pinky promise
end clip, basically reuse the opening clip

hands, just hands

I had nightmare with hands...I probably draw more hands than you could ever see in life...

custom model

I always enjoy the long poses, it's a bit odd for animators, but I think that only has something to do with my personality...ignore the proportion problems, I used to draw from head to toe without sketching the gesture (shouldn't do that ever again)

some figures on my sketch book

 of course I did a bunch more...but too lazy to photograph all of them, so I choose a couple that look the best

figure workshop

     Drawn during the summer in the clubs. Should really check out the clubs if you live in Philly, you can't always find good places to draw, and your skills don't just leap for no reason. Practice, always practice, practice until you vomit blood. The clubs were hidden between 12 and 13 street, little hard to find but at least it's on the map. Students cost 6 dollars with an ID, 8 for members and 10 for the others. Open seven days a week, there's at least one session that fits your schedule. Here is the link:

     So I did these without outlining, just pure render, it looks like they float out of paper, which made me really happy. Maybe I should try that again when I have time...I miss hatching


sketch of my friend Jessica, I did a couple of them for homework, but I like this one the best because it actually catches the expression. Thanks for modeling for me so I don't have to hide in the corners to draw the people passing by, i'll remember that forever

it was from a photo, and he is a guy

glad my hatching has improved now he's missing so much anatomy, another reason why you should draw real person


I was really bad at drawing faces, seriously, I think that's because I always put so much effort into them that I lost the other important elements. At least I rendered them pretty nicely...

cross hatching practice

     This is a drawing from my drawing 1 class during my time in LMU, taught by Professor Marina Moevs. I had no idea who made that statue nor do I know the name of the work, I'm pretty sure it's quite famous. I made this drawing with pencil, cross hatching. If you look at my work today you will realize I didn't draw like I used to. This piece get me second place at the drawing circus, I always get the second place either class rank or anything. I'm cursed with that number 2...Yah I had a hell lot of struggle in that class, that's when I started to hate charcoal, if anybody ask me if I like charcoal and I smiled and said it's my favorite medium you should know I mean the opposite. I learned most of my techniques there. Yes, the class was hard, but you have to admit it when you survived you had improved more than expected.


2D design stuff

Series of photos

     I took a photography class at LMU before, fun class, loads of work, recommended for everyone to take. If need a film camera, I have one, a bit scratched but it's pretty new in good conditions. Getting back to the topic...I took some photos, I'm not a photographer so don't criticize on me...

this is a doll made out of clay, it's name is TUZKI, based off 王卯卯's design

so here he is thinking about life...with a bunch of bottles I collected over the semester, yeah I know I need to clean my desk

yes that's my drawing, yes that's a wacom pen

I made a second doll, they look exactly the same, just different colors. on the background that's my eye cover, don't get scared, I don't wear it often...

so they are getting all romantic at the moment, I was thinking of Romeo and Juliet when I took this photo

yeah, fast, they got engaged just that quickly...

I ran out of ideas to shoot, so the manikin pops out from on where...

hello, and goodbye, it was that quick...
