Random sketches - Cat and Chair

I've been wanting to get back into drawing and sketching with the tablet, so I decided to just draw whatever I could find. I'm getting back into it now, I hope to get some presentable works in here soon enough. At the moment, just bear with me heheh.

This is a drawing of a cat sleeping on a clothes hanger, based on a picture I got from an email. I just had to draw something and this was stored in my laptop.

And this is simply a drawing of a chair right in front of my face in the office.

Thanks for viewing :)

Santa spoofs The Ring

Hi again folks, I just realised that this is officially the 50th post for this blog, I know its not too much, but at least the blog is moving after a long hiatus. Thanks to my readers and followers for supporting me and for consistently dropping by my humble blog.

Unfortunately, its another blast from the past, but I figured its still something new for this blog.

Back in 2005, I wanted to enter Wacom's e-greeting card contest, in hopes of winning any one of their tablets, being a big Wacom fan myself. Was going for the funniest card title but I didn't make it in time. Its a bit messy, but I'm still proud that I managed to finish and materialise my idea.

Concept of the illustration? Well, Santa's found a new mode of transport, where he can warp through TV signals (farfetched I know) and because of this he can "teleport" to the TVs of the house he's visiting to leave presents. Unfortunately, he scares a mom and her child by crawling out of their TV, which is coincidentally in an unlit part of the household. Hilarity ensues as he looks more like the ghost that crawls out of the TV from The Ring.

Anyway as usual, here's the process flow of my greeting card non-entry:

Original very rough sketch for composition

Blocked in some flat colours and minor shadows

Smoothed out the colours on Santa and added details to his bag

Scrapped the details on Santa and added a lot of black for exaggeration

Finalised the details for the Xmas tree, mom, boy and the carpet.

Final artwork with appropriate comic text

Looking back at it, I think I've could have executed the idea better. Hope you enjoy the post. 'Til then!

Kamal - Hari Ini Single Cover Art

My brother, the singer, released a single a couple of months back, marking his return into singing after being in a lonnggg hiatus. He released his single in GuaMuzik, so anyone interested should check him out there and support him by purchasing the song. He employed me to redo his cover art, as he wanted something that he'd like personally. Its nothing big, really, simple and functional, just the way he wants it. I took a shot of him with an off white backdrop and did the cutting and editing in Photoshop.

Thanks for your support!

Foldees contest winners has just been announced but my card didn't get in the list. Just like to say to all who have helped rated my card, I appreciate it very much. I'll have to improve my designs further to get anywhere near the list of winners.
