what do you use for outlines of the work? i mean what kind of pen, or anything else.
Hi there! :D Answering this publicly because I’ve been getting this question a lot in the past week.
I use a 0.5 mechanical pencil for smaller works. I also use an ordinary unbranded pencil like the cheap ones that kids use for school or Faber Castel. The lead is often HB so it’s not too dark or light. If I want a cleaner look, I erase unwanted pencil marks but a lot of times, I leave light strokes behind before I paint.
Before I start, my works usually look like this image that I posted a few days ago: http://valeriechua.tumblr.com/post/50462230251/
That’s about it! :)
We watched as you poured water to the brim… And we were all right about it.
Got published on @SpaceMagazine. Cool! 🌟 Slightly old works though… I had a mental drought late-2012. 😕🍂

This is my sister’s work. She takes lovely photos! Visit her tumblr. :)
WIP from a different angle.
Another small #Moleskine painting to pass the time in Calayo. I bumped my toe to a door so part of the nail broke. Nurse Aleyn @wallposterstar told me to avoid salt water muna so I spent the 1st afternoon painting. 😥 I still swam and kayaked the next day. 😆
Small on-the-spot painting on my #Moleskine at Calayo, Batangas. First time doing something like this.

Random #Moleskine doodle before I exercise. I just want to eat. 🍝
“I hate phone calls” (from nosy relatives). 😕
Sketch before I read a book and sleep. I have to wake up extra early tomorrow and head to downtown Manila. 😥
Another notebook doodle. On the side it says 虻蜂取らず, which means he who grasps too much/fast holds on to nothing.
Messy misaligned doodle but that’s okay… Just keep drawing. 😆
I’d like to dedicate this to my friend Irene who is the #1 vegetable hater in the world. :))
Now back to doing commissions. :o
