Stephanie's Sketches: v.3

  It's Friday in Singapore. I hope you have something awesome planned for the weekend, and if you haven't had the bestest week, here are some recent sketches. They were all done in my red monologue sketchbook, which I bought from Popular.

"Owl" in signo pens. I quite like how it turned out, actually.
"Stylised Wolf" in signo pens. Some people say it's a fox, others say it's a bear... Oh, well.
 "Bonne Nuit" in Zig clean color and signo pens. I like the composition but I need to learn how to make background washes more uniformed... It looks rather blotchy in this piece.
 "Flareron" in signo pens. I have plans to explore this kind of 'negative drawing effect' in the future. 
 "Learn From Cats" in signo pens. I need to remind myself to not be so uptight sometimes...
Work In Progress. "Je Taime", which means "I love you" in French. 
"Lovely Creativity" in signo pens. It was something my boyfriend, Kai, said to me; "Don't waste all that lovely creativity." It made me smile so I decided to make it into a typography work. I attempted to convey what each of the word felt like.
"Silent Roar" in pastel and coloured pencil white. I stuck a black piece of Derwent paper onto the sketchbook just so that I could draw this piece. I really like how it turned out.

  As some of you may know, I currently have a full time job, and it requires a lot of travelling, so what I do is that I sketch out the bases of each piece at home during my free time, and then on the train I ink them out. There shouldn't be any excuses as to why you can't find any time to draw. It's only a matter of whether you want to or not.

  A lot of things have changed in my life... With my current job I have to really be dedicated to continuing my personal artistic advancements, I now have a lovely boyfriend who loves me and has been really encouraging me to improve my art and myself... I have learnt to balance work, with family, with love, with my passion in arts. It's not been easy, but it's been extremely fulfilling.

  Funnily enough, even though I now have less personal time I am now creating much more personal works... Perhaps it's due to the fact that I'm now more disciplined and am now managing my time better. We're almost a month away from 2014. How exciting and dizzily splendiferous 2013 has been.. and how time has flown by.

  A shout-out to all my new readers, and a thank you to everyone who has continued following me on this blog since way before. I would love to hear what you think of my sketches, so leave me a comment in the doobly-doo. Anonymous commenting is enabled.
