Just trying to get some studies going either in my sketchbook or digital whenever I find myself on break or after the break. Sometimes just working on freelance gets stale. Not saying the freelance is boring or anything cause its SUPER FUN! and always pushing me more than I would do myself. Stale as in you look at it for too long and then you cant really tell anymore whats going on. So i either work on two things and switch to something else or try to do these studies. I mean im no pro but its always fun. I try to keep them loose but it rather difficult to do that aswell. Here are the studies for now aaaaaaaaaaaand I'll post again soon.

study from my favorite painter Sargent! Finally! I always wanted to do it. I just had alotta bad luck with it cause like either Photoshop crashes or shut the pc down without saving. I don't know why but this one always had that. Finally kicked myself to do this. Was trying to study his brush strokes cause what I want to tackle in my own paintings. I was doing a little 3d too but then when I start doing 3D i start feeling guilty that I still do get better at painting. Its the only thing i can do fairly decent but I NEED TO MASTER IT. I don't know if that's just my own paranoia. Most likely it is. :B

Just sketching things out and taking a break from regular work. This month my whole routine have been so off cause of ramamdhan. Its so hard to get any work done let alone get some spare time to sketch for fun. I am also trying to play couple games too. Nier and Ori and Arkham knight but there just isn't any time and then of course home chores and cooking and cleaning. Sometimes I wish I can stop time and have some spare time to just draw without any worries, any stress. >.< But of course that can NEVER happen *sigh* So how do we tackle that just take break from and draw something out. However, (yes there is however xD) when I do that I just get too carried away in the fun of spare time drawing and forget about my work lol. Just gotta be discipline I guess. So I started this while waiting for a friend, it was wandom. I call this series waiting for THE friend, because the only time I get to work on this is when I'm waiting for her.

This is a study I started and then couple old sketches that I wanted to upload but so many things to take care of. Also yesterday was my birthday which ended up pretty randomly. Well not that random but it started with me being at home and then ended up in a birthday cake and dinner even though we had to drop someone off xD. So yea I wasn't expecting cause my family had some plans and my man had some other plan and I have no clue how different plans randomly came together. I got some purple flowers and bllllllllllllue e roses! I looooooooooove purples and blues <3 faaaaaaaves and another gift too. here are my flowies and gift from la famalia!!

This is one of the freelance I worked on now im allowed to show it. Its for Cryptozoic entertainment. I have done couple other work for them but they aren't out yet. Hopefully I can upload them soon. So since we are here showing our freelance stuff, I wanted to mention about contract work. This isn't something recent but from 2013. It is the time, when I was partly looking for freelance. I came across this company called sky soul. The guy I talked to his name was Justin and he seemed pretty nice. They gave me a contract for 5 pieces which means I get paid after completing all 5 pieces (please don't ever sign contract like these). Firstly, it was pretty low paid and their demands for that rate were pretty high. Even though the example he showed me weren't that good. There was a lot of fixing they asked for which is fine I guess, comes with the work turf. After completing the first piece I started with the 2nd and completed that one too. During this time I was also working at Kabam and I told this guy that I am. After he received the file for 2nd psd he just stopped contacting me for the third one. He never got back to me. I sent him like more than 10 emails or so I believe on his email, on the website info email and to some of his colleagues email. So I started looking for some artist who have worked for them. I contacted them to contact this guy on my behalf and tell him to get back to me. So two of the kind artist gladly did. He told them because I responded late one the 2nd piece ( which I already talked to him about and he okayed it) he doesn't want to work with me anymore. The artist told them whatever the reason was you should be professional and talk to her rather than ignoring the thing. He denied he got any emails from me and even though the artist told him he still didn't get back to me. I then decided it was futile to pursue this and that I should let this go. I talked to one of the artist who told me that they made them copy legend of cryptids stuff and change very minor things. So basically they were just making bad copies of the legend of cryptids cards. boooooooooooooooooooooooo The moral of the story always ask for separate contract per piece unless you really trust the client you are working for. Anyways here the piece, hope you enjoy.

Just been busy with work but occasionally sketching in between to take a break every once in a while. I have been thinking about uploading for so long but i always get lazy in doing that. There a lot more which i need to take photos of and upload, but for now this will do. Just been trying improve while tackling work and different sort of subject matter which I haven't done before. Things been seeming a little better because I'm trying to take point of view of different artist friends. Seeing and taking their approach open up a lot of different dimensions which I didn't even think of. xD Forgive my dirty sketches because i draw in whatever is around me not only just a sketchbook xD.

Part 5 because I posted half of this here and there and never got to pot the rest complete, so finally I'm doing it today. Just have been so demotivated lately, don't feel like painting anything at all. Maybe its true that the circumstances around you can effect your painting or ability to paint, and I'm experiencing that for the first time. Anyways uploading these now. I went to do some life drawings will be uploading those soon too, when im not being lazy! xD

So I've been sketching for the past few days and studying and visiting events that I haven't been too before, keeping myself away from digital art for sometime. I did started some sketches which according to my friend were quite violent, lol , but I assure you they do have a meaning behind them. I shall be uploading them soon. For now I'm uploading this sketch I did of my sister the other day. She has been asking me to sketch or paint her for quite sometime now, but you know its one of those afraid feelings of not painting your own family members in case if it doesn't turn out good. I decided to sketch her while watching the last and intense episode of this anime called D.grayman which we left watching about 2 or 3 years ago. (not a very good choice)lol. The sketch turned out her exact likeness, however I figured it was on a piece of tissue paper lol. Thanks to the digital age that i can snap it and save it. That tissue paper isn't going to a long life after all XD. Here is the sketch, I'll be uploading my other stuff hopefully tomorrow. Hope everyone is doing great and having a wonderful time.
