♥Disintergrate into eternity♥

Acrylic and watercolour pencils, June 2012

    Inpsired from Anderson's fairy tale, the poor little mermaid, 
after failed to make the prince fall in love with her, resigns herself 
to dissovle into foam. Her dream of dancing freely on her own feet
 hereby disintergrates. However, with her kind heart, the mermaid
 finally finds herself a daughter of the air - forever
serving the eternal nature.

The real Napoleon (Animal farm)

Just finished reading this astoudning fable of
George Orwell. A lively alternative world was 
created as a witty satire attacking the corrupted 
revelution is Russia before the Second World War.

The portrait below is drawn from a picture of Stalin,
which is an allergory from the protagonist Napoleon
in Animal farm. I treat this simply as an exercise 
to work with male portraits, seperating myself from illustrating pretty young girls (which I have been
stuck with), as well as developing my character 
designs with various facial features from
different characteristics and ages.

                                       Start drawing men! You will find the inner artistic 
                                       capability within you that was never known about.

A touch from Rapunzel

Rapunzel, oh Rapunzel, for she has been an inspiration for so many poet lines as well as paintings. As for myself, I love her portrayal in the Disney movie Tangled. A beautiful young lady who is trapped in an isolated tower, finds beauty in every littlest, simplest things- things that we indifferently ignore or forget...

Puberty of a bluestocking

  A colour pencil illustration I created after coming across a charming 
bookworm in Cambridge central library. Rebelling against the stereotype portrayal of 
bluestockings, I believe bluestoking girls are truly beautiful, despite the thick glasses 
with a look of insecurity hidden underneath.
