Last week I was asked by an old friend to make her caricatures of her elder sister and her spouse for wedding invitation. The progress is still 75%, and now I am supposed to continue working on the commission. But apparently my sister forgot to include the pen tablet when packing my laptop. Gotta back home for the stylus. Imma put it on my blog soon after getting approval from the client. In the mean time, I will just give you some rough sketches I made with the help from my little pumpkin. These all are her ideas. I am just the executor... ;) Enjoy!
The first sketch seems okay, but she is afraid the buffalo will appear more dominant than the brides themselves. Then she came up with the second sketch ;)
Okay...then I transferred 'em into my laptop so I can draw in digital...
I am writing this post during my translation project at the 'office'. This is a commission from my former Ex*am*p colleague, mas Jule. He asked me to make him a sketch from the photo he gave several months ago. Hehehee,,The result is better (*I guess). Here I am posting the work in progress from beginning till the end. Tools of the trade: Adobe Photoshop CS 4 with Wacom pen tablet. Enjoy!
Last week I posted a screenshot of my 2,000th tweet as a dedication for my little pumpkin. You guys might wanna see the work in progress from sketching to coloring, eh? How can I jabber on for so long and not really show anything? So, ther ya go! *You can click on the image to see it larger (its original size). Click here to see the result!
I start it with the sketch...very rough ;)
And then I continue it with the base color and add some lighting.
Jakarta - Reading the third book of Ippho Santosa will make us always say Subhanallah, Alhamdulillah and Allahu Akbar. Why? Because Ippho has "flicked" us to always be grateful for whatever happens. And he jogs our memory that we can always train our right brain to work and make some charity. Ippho also says that the right side is always associated with matters that lead to goodness. So that is no harm if we can start our activities by using the right brain: Irrational, emotional, Intuition, Unplanned, Expressive, and Spontaneous.
I personally love this concept because it is easy. Perhaps this is because of my own self that also have properties and characteristics similar to the concept of the right brain. It’s just how I can develop it intelligently in my daily life. It’ll be my next mission. On his books, Ippho essentially argues the same things. In the first book, Ippho explains the right-brain method of introduction. Then on to the second edition of the book, Ippho explains how to put it into practice in our lives, while on the third book Ippho invites us to be more creative and develop it properly. In his books, Ippho also puts many jokes so readers will not necessarily get bored because most motivation books often patronizing.
I supposed I could review more of the 3 books from Ippho, however I deliberately shortened it so readers may be interested to read the motivation books from Ippho. One thing to describe Ippho books, ''FANTASTIC".
Hey pumpkin, how are you? Hope you're doing good. Having great time with your besties ;)
Here I am, writing a blog post on the sidelines of slaying another dead lion at my second office. I'm not doing pretty good today, but I'm fine. This first day is a really hard day for me without having you around. I been thinking about you the whole day. I tried to handle it by sleeping, yet failed. You kept popping out in my dreams. I thought working on my translation project would put you out of my mind for just a moment. However, I ended up writing this blog entry about you. I just couldn't help it.
Oh ya, I forgot I still owe you a picture. The sketch of your face. Here it is... :)
I added texture at the background. Hope you don't mind ;)
“when I tell you I love you, It doesn't mean I know you'll never go, Only that I wish you didn't have to.”
Gee, time flies by and I gotta slay the dead lion. I'm missing you so bad! :(
