I was thinking of putting better use to my tumblr so I changed the layout yesterday to get me in a posting appetite. I’ve been writing disheveled feelings in my sketchbook like “how long does it take to forget?" and I respond with, you can never forget; you can’t ever forget. I realized that there are just some things that will haunt you for the rest of your life.
I was working on this and my sister hijacked my playlist and made me listen to G-Dragon all throughout. Basically this hip deer is fueled by Korean hiphop.
Process! It’s almost done. Just need to tweak. :) For Crested Tees! I had fun doing these.
Hi everyone! Here’s my contribution to Lenovo x Camille Co Chronicles. I actually completed the work a few weeks ago in New York but I kept changing the design. I could be really indecisive sometimes. Modifying works digitally is really convenient—the possibilities are endless! All the more that I used a touchscreen desktop computer to work on this.
We asked how the overall image should look like so I followed some of our readers’ advice. Most of what was asked was to produce something dark, mysterious, involving flowers and animals to give that enchanted vibe. Here’s my take on it.
The elements like the flowers and outlines were worked on traditionally by hand. Then I scanned them and layered them onto Camille’s photo (shot by Joseph Pascual) on Photoshop. For the most part, I used my fingers to drag the images into place. In case you’re wondering, I used a Lenovo IdeaCentre A520 desktop (it looks like this, a very sexy piece of hardware). I love how working on it feels fast, organic and it gives you more control over your work. I hope you guys like the result!
I did a short wip video of this on my Instagram. I’ll try to post process videos regularly! http://instagram.com/valerieannchua
Doing commissions at the studio. I only have until the 31st here. :( Just need to finish 2 more paintings then I’m out. I love clients who say “do whatever you like!!!” So nice of them. ;_;
FInd me at the center and you will find a gaze that is most cordial
Postcards! 💌 #art #wip #postcards #watercolor
Pulling an all-nighter at the studio. I really hope everyone has left. I’ve been singing out loud for at least half an hour already. FEELS SO GOOD. 😭 (at Gowanus)
