oil hiatus~

Left my studio for two weeks now, on four digital pieces for NDA projects. Miss my wips... :(

Per Clint's request & Astroboy~

I finished this set of Magic cards while in Prague. To be honest, i am not happy with them. :( I wish i could incorporate my own style within the Magic universe more successfully. I will try harder in the next set.

In the other news: "Astroboy" was up to a not so flying start in the US. I watched it with my little sis, who turned 12 on the day it premiered in China. She LOVED it. I told her about the bad reviews and horrible box offices, and they didn't change a thing: She still LOVES it.
Which is all that really matters to me. :)

Out shopping for Linseed oil, came back with a bunch of chinese brushes and inks. :D Figure it might be fun to just sketch for a day. The results are frustrating(again), but like everyone who works usually in Digital: Gotta love the textures!!

Paint paint paint.... or Stop?!

Sigh.... is it me, or do my oil paintings look best when they are just the very first draft...? i keep thinking the first photo is the best part of what i painted today:

what it looks like now:

and the wip from the day before yesterday, before the dark field was painted:

i am having a lot of fun, but i think maybe i paint too fast and didn't plan enough for it to all come together.... Patience, Patience, Patience~

Raise Zombiewan~ :D

Long time no see!! Well, i am back from the Dead~ Going to Hong Kong friday for the Astroboy Crew Premiere, Very excited!!! ^___^
Here's what i have on the easle, wip:

it's based on a dream i had, about two months ago. i don't think the image does the horrifying dream any justice... oh well. The next one would be better, no? if you are wondering, I realized i took a very bad picture after dark today and had to do some twigging in ps on top~ :(

For R...

...Thanks for taking me flying. :)

Wip for "Fisherman and His Soul". Tried to depict the scene when the lovers were united again in Death. Listened to the soundtrack of"The Assassination of Jesse James" the whole way.

Young Empress wip~

200th post on the blog~! Yay. This is for R. Thanks for being my best friend even when i am so far away~

This is unusually "cheery" for me, probably because of the colors i saw, mainly in the Tibetan household, during my Yunnan trip. Traveling sure changes how i approach my pieces...

Yunnan Lijiang & Shangrila~

Took a few days off from the heat in Guangzhou, and went to Yunnan. It was all so gorgeous, i wonder why anyone would live anywhere else~ Will get back to oils when the studio is not so hot~ for now, i am painting on the computer.

Macao, and wips~

Went to Macao for a couple of days. Most people love the casinos there, I love all the old time Chinese bill boards... and noodles!
All are still wips, the second one i started today. Seems like i become a different artist when i tackle the traditional medium, which is a nice change.
going to Hong Kong next week~ More photos coming! ^___^

Yay China~

Arrived in my hometown, Guang Zhou, China 2 weeks ago. Finally got my studio up and running 2 days ago! Going to be here for 6 months and tackle oil painting. So far it's been as much fun as i had hoped for, which is g r e a t. Just experimenting since i know very little outside of the direct painting approach. I love the fluidity using pure linseed oil gives, but the slow drying might prove to be too much~

a study in contrast~

Budapest. How to describe it? Sumptuous, fanciful interiors that are unsurpassed by any buildings i have seen, coupled with the stripped bared, bullet ridden exteriors and memories. To lived here for two weeks is to experience World War II, the Cold War and the relentless nostalgia for glories passed while munching on the best cuisine of Europe(second or equal to that of Italy, imho). I can not recommend this city enough: for its beauty, for its tragedy,and for its heart.
