Life Update in Sketches
Hello there! I haven’t been updating this blog as much as I would want to so here’s a collection of sketches I did since the start of the year.
Here are some of the sketches I did at the office while Pinterest-ing. Pinterest is a really good website for inspirations or pegs. Too many beautiful things over at that site. <3
The first sketch on my brand new Fashionary (finally gave in and got myself one).
Practicing with colored pencils again. It’s been around two years since I last used one. I wasn’t satisfied with this one so I never finished it. :P
Here’s a little something I made after attending a brush calligraphy workshop two weeks ago. I learned a lot about how pressure and control of the brush makes so much interesting strokes. Clearly, I need more practice with my brushwork! :D
I’m usually more active on Instagram and I post a lot of WIPs and sketches over there so follow me at: http://instagram.com/maweeborrs :)
“You can’t rely on how you look to sustain you. What actually sustains us, what is fundamentally beautiful, is compassion, for yourself and for those around you. That kind of beauty inflames the heart and enchants the soul…”
I’m pretty sure you all know who this lovely lady is. I’d come across some red carpet photos of her online and every time I would be so blown away by her amazing sense of style. I have yet to watch 12 Years a Slave, but i’m convinced it’s a great movie - hello Best Picture of this year’s Oscars! Not to mention, Lupita won Best Actress for this film. She always seems to say the most inspiring words - her acceptance speech to the Oscars and this video, which I think every girl should watch:
It’s been a long time since I last drew something for myself. Art block is the worst. :(
I was at the pet store the other day and had a sudden urge to paint some parrot fishes which I saw that time. Experimented a little bit for this particular illustration. What do you think? :D
