Here is a little video of 'Tidy-Kids iPad game', with a few game elements, illustrations, animations. This one took sooo much longer than I expected, testing all my patience.. with the old video footage in different sizes, different formats, different frame rate, and the conversions for different softwares. But learnt new things. I plan to use it for my new demo-reel.

I finally managed to finish my student animation films. Edited/removed a few shots. Basically made it a bit presentable. I dont like leaving things unfinished and this was in my todo list for quite some time.
So here it is~ Drift, my second short animation for a beautiful song sung and composed by Kori Pop.

So it's been a month and I'm back home.
I always thought I would write a very-very long post about my experiences of living in and traveling around Florence, but that's going to take some time.
At the moment I'm pretty excited to share with y'all my online shop on society6! I have uploaded only one illustration and I do plan to create more illustrations and drawings for the store.
Here is the link:
Prints and things~
Some prints are expensive here. And I would love to figure out better, cost effective options, if there are any: What do you think? Write to me here: firstname.lastname@example.org

Lorenzo~ Portrait in Sepia.
6 days pose.
~: detail :~
Finito! So the portrait of Chiara is finally finished :)
I always spelt her name as Kiara, but it is an Italian name, so 'Ch' is basically the 'K'. Also, roll the letter R as 'arr' to make it sound really Italian. (kee-aarrah) I'm gradually beginning to love this language :D
Okay, so now that I can't work on it anymore and I have time to look at the picture, I see how I completely forgot to work on the ear! It looks so weird now. I was planning to work on it at the end, but got carried away with the primary details(eyes, nose, mouth). Something to keep in mind, for the next portrait!

I'm quite excited about the portrait painting that we've started. It's my first portrait painting in color. Took some pictures as I was doing it, so here are the initial stages:
In the afternoon, we do the drawing in studio light. This time we could use a soft medium for drawing and I used a sepia stick for this one. Was quite difficult initially, it's my first attempt at using a soft medium. but I really like the dreamy mood it can create. Need to practice a lot with the medium though!
Better pictures soon!
