Par's Artworx #3

My partner-in-crime Par and her hallyuness strike again. This time she drew another hallyu celeb whom I forgot his name, unfortunately. Believe me I can't read hangul...

As her previous artwork, she brought this drawing to me then I did the coloring. It was fun and easy since it was a chibi chara which did not require much details. I want to make some chibi charas too, someday. :D

This guy is Dong Jun, a person from Ze:A, same as the person she drew before. Case closed.

Par's Artworx #2

Unintentionally, on the day I created a Ghostgirl fanart, my partner-in-crime Par told me via Line that she made one too. Yes, both of us loves that Tonya Hurley's book series. We have the first three books and are waiting for the rest books to be published here.

Charlotte Usher does have her popularity in our hearts.

Par's Artworx #1

My partner-in-crime Par is a Kpoper; or a person who loves and is much affected by hallyu aka Korean wave, and lately she observes anything related with Ze:A. This artwork is made by her to represent one of her favorite idols from Ze:A. She brought her drawing files to me and I scanned and colored them. Keep reading my blog to see the rest of her artworks!

Lanla's Kittens

Anyone loves cats here? I am not a pet person, but I like it whenever a pet owner treats their pets well, or even trains them. It is like seeing a plus score of humanity. I have some friends who love cats. They usually have one or two with various breeds. Some feed them with the same food as we eat, some with specified food. Different people treat their pets differently.

My cats-lover friend Lanla asked me to make her an artworx of something including cats in it. To be more precise, being crowded by cats. Oh she surely is a cats lover! It took time to decide on how should I made it, since I had had drawn something about surrounded by cats like this before. But then I decided to make something sweeter and warmer, like being under a blanket when it rains outside.

Naruto and Hinata's Bento Time

Rather than worshiping Naruto and Sakura as a couple, I see Naruto and Hinata - often simplified as NaruHina - as a sweeter couple. I watched this series until the earlier episodes of Naruto Shippuden then I stopped because the TV did so (I'm not an anime freak who downloads or streams through the internet to follow the entire series). Because I had never continued watching it, I don't know how is Naruto and Hinata's relationship development. There was an episode where I thought was the key to their relationship; it was when Hinata shared her bento (lunch box) with Naruto and he said that she could be a good wife.

It's totally cuuuuuute!

My language training club friend Wiwied asked me to do an artwork of Naruto and Hinata. Perhaps he is also their worshiper. :p So I drew them in some typical classic Japanese seifuku (school uniform) and represented that bento scene. I chose green as the main color only because they lived in Konohagakure aka Hidden Leaf Village.

Please don't remind me that at some occasions leaves aren't green.

Charlotte Usher's Homecoming Dress

Does anyone read Ghostgirl by Tonya Hurley? I really love that book series! How can death be so lightly told and interesting like Charlotte Usher's? How can friendship be so beautiful although she is dead? How can a feeling stay in her heart the same way as she was alive?

My Facebook friend Merlyn asked me if I can make an artworx of Charlotte in her homecoming dress. Of course it was an interesting idea that I should accept right away. Now you know why I made a concept of a homecoming dress in my previous post. The color I put on was inspired by the second book cover in Indonesia version.

Now, can anyone explain who is the mysterious boy ghost who danced with Charlotte in the first book?

Mini Homecoming Dress

Homecoming is uncommon here, so I was quite astounded by the dresses sold around the internet. There are homecoming dresses which are playful and sweet; quinceanera gowns which make the birthday girls feel special; etc etc. As a girl who only knew kebaya and common bridal gowns, to see such many kinds of dresses made my fashion knowledge broaden a little.

This homecoming dress was actually a concept for one of my upcoming artworks where I had to draw a homecoming dress. In the end I did not put on this one, but I didn't want to let it go either so I scanned it, colored it, and went to this blog to post it.

How do we know that we will get a little treasure so sudden?

Hong Yu Ra (Hong Yoo Ra)

As a neutral-towards-hallyu person, korean drama Bel Ami/Pretty Man is one of my favorite series and Hong Yu Ra (or should I write it Hong Yoo Ra? Please CMIIW) is one of my favorite characters in it. Despite her saddening past, she's strong and elegant, and her smartness leads her to get what she wants. Her heavy eyeliner is what I am falling in love most, and she usually wears nude or soft peach lipstick to balance her gothic eyes. And her brows... OMG! <3 <3 <3 Han Chae Young plays it so well!

However, no matter how deep I like this fictional character, I did not purposely draw this. At that time I only drew an eye with heavy eyeliner and then I got the urge to finish this up as Hong Yu Ra.

Dried Tears

A hurt feeling is one of those things we don't want to exist in our life. However, everything happens and our emotions spice them up so that we develop feelings: happiness, sorrow, disappointment... Would we be stronger without one of those feelings, say, hurt? I don't think so.

The thin girl I drew here was beaten hard deep inside her heart. Yes she was crying for hours until she messed up her make up, but then she could decide on how to protect herself and prevent herself from getting down again. As Lenka said in her song Trouble is A Friend, yes, trouble is a meanie friend.

Cookies Confetti

If you think that this geometric thingy was made after Confetti Cookies, you are absolutely right. I am bad at mixing colors from color pencils so I tried it here so that even you are seeing purple here, it is not the original purple from the pencil itself. Still stiff though. :p

If you see any text behind this drawing, it's because I am still keeping my habit to reuse papers.

Confetti Cookies

"Confetti Cookies" is just a last-minute title for this artwork. Honestly I don't have any idea of what I drew. However, seeing its colors and small triangles is delightful, even though I don't really like triangles.

FYI, I used color pencils to color it.

Sunshine Scent

Sunshine always pours down here in my tropical heaven. Try to lock yourself inside your house for few days and you'll gonna miss it to warm up your body. At least that's what I feel lately.

You don't need to stare at the rays as long as your skin can feel it.
