Kit Design Entry 2010

Trying my hand at illustrating a packaging for Kit Cosmetics.
Sketch --> Painting --> Final Design.

Wished uni taught us about using pantone colours. It's a simple design which I'm semi-meh-happy with.

Try drawing left hand!

I tried drawing left hand at life drawing tonight. A fellow artist decided to try it and it turned out to be the best piece he's ever done. The first piece was done by left hand. Think I might continue that in future. Second was done using my usual right. Maybe artists and illustrators should learn to use both hands. If you're determined, maybe feet too!

Tried using blue chinagraph in the picture with the girl with glasses. Fail! Maybe I'll have to use it to sharpen edges and lines but not smudging. I also drew a small portrait of my two day twin for her birthday. Glad she liked it.

Happy Birthday to me and my friends who share the same birthday.

More stuff from wednesday's life drawing. :) I'm still working on concepts for Kit Designs 2010.

Oils Practice

Decided to get back into using oils. It's a beautiful medium and would use it more often if I had a better ventilated area to work in. I had to keep my balcony door open at all times and the cold air rushing through.

My set up is sitting on the beanbag and working on the easel. Turn the small heater in front of me at times. Put some music in the PS3 to blast away in the background. Now my job is to keep at it and practise acrylics too.
