cheong ah!

Posted in drawings on July 16, 2009 by phua

a very rough sketch that i have done on and off over a few years. YEARS? yes, years! thats how slow i am! finally, after overcoming much procrastination, i’ve scanned it into my computer. however, this is far from the finished product. i’ll just put it here as a stark and offensive reminder to work on it more conscientiously.


back then, my friend was working on a written story, where 5 of us are transported to an alternate dimension where we (as 5 students) suddenly gain lots of spangly new skills like martial arts and uber weapons and colourful histories (ya i noe, COOLRITE!). one of them’s supposed to be a blind marksman, and another’s supposed to be a swordsman from like the black lagoon or something. i forget the details. guess which one’s supposed to be me? hah.

notice that i took a lot, A LOT of artistic liberty! hah, we’re supposed to be students and only 2 of them look passable enough as students. one looks like a mafia hitman, one like some holy champion of the pope and one just looks like an ahbeng tossing a basketball. pengz

the proportions and the pacing are SO off.

i’ll have to rearrange and resize some portions.

there’s so much more to improve.

i’ll work on it – tomorrow. hah.


hello again!

heh heh. i feel quite embaressed posting again, cos i have totally neglected my poor sad blog. thus, i shall choose the easiest blogging option and just upload a very dated work.. it is actually a WIP, or a Work-In-Progress, but sadly, I did the entire sketching in 2007, and haven’t touched it since. terrible, right!!!! sigh. hopefully, i’ll colour it one day. hehe maybe when i get myself a bamboo *drools*

anyway, it was supposed to be this emo person slitting his wrist. but some people said it looks like octopus, some said he looks like he’s using a fruit knife. grrr! anw i think my inspiration was the sangokushi taisen (三国故事大战) game in arcades.. i really like the artwork on some of the cards. yupp and i referenced using a girl slitting her wrist.

i hate my scanner!!! it sux!! always has these 2 stupid lines down the middle. oh well. looking at this work makes me quite depressed cos i don’t think i’ll ever produce such quality again. haha. sighs

sometimes you just feel so boxed in and claustrophobic
