Hasn't post here in a while. But life has been quite busy and I didn't really have any "art" updates to talk about. However, I've been quite active on the different communities here on LJ, personal journal but just not on this one.

But, the good thing is that I've restart drawing lately (^-^) !! And continued an old idea I wanted to do for a little while. This drawing changed a lot. At first it wasn't supposed to be exactly like this and was very ugly. I have 2 references but they aren't exactly what I want so, a lot of the drawing is being improvised by me. Especially the hand and the hair.

Enough blabbing and here's a teaser of it!

Had Enough

I'm very excited at the idea of finishing this drawing! I hope it'll give the emotion that I want it to transfer. I also hope to finish it soon enough to start another of my older ideas And Cry.... I'm a bit tired of drawing in a "front plan".

On a different subject, I have a brand new layout customized to my very own taste or should I say colour scheme. I was one of the winners at the "200+ members contest" of [livejournal.com profile] abellalayouts. In complete honesty, I'm in love with it~! I think it looks gorgeous and original. Everything is just perfect about it! Or close to be. Anyway, look for yourself [livejournal.com profile] ivory_and_irony!

P.S. If you're using IE you won't see the "handwriting" font.

Otherwise, the weather has been deadly hot in the past few days. We had for 5 days straight over 40°C and it supposed to last until Friday. I really wished we had an A/C. The nights are rough. I pity the people that have jobs outside. Because of this, I can't really draw because my forearm keeps sticking to the paper. Or the pencil slips from my fingers. It's really disgusting when you think about it =S

I lost the count of hours... Perhaps, around 5?

Nightlight VS Daylight

The (first) picture is horrible and blurry. The colours aren't representative AT ALL. It's supposed to be a hot pink, and not...this ugly pink redish. The makeup around the eyes doesn't even show pink too. Okay, it doesn't help that I don't have a proper lighting and that it's dark in my room. But you still get an idea of how it's coming along. I think that's the important part :)

I'm still trying to figure out how to colour this portrait in general. I'm not quite done with the hair but its coming. And honestly, I'm having a hell lot of fun doing this piece!

[Edit] I took a better picture this morning. I should have waited to took it with the daylight. But I was impatient has always last night. I think, the difference is quite obvious. Ah, it's so much better even if it's still a little tiny bit off. I'm satisfy.

I'm not sure where I'm going with this drawing... It's only my second time that I'm working with coloured pencils. I'm not sure if I actually regret what I did so far or not...

Currently attempting at colouring the hair.

Opinions? Ideas?

I'm open to any kind of suggestions :)

Approx 1:30...

I don't know how I'll make disappear the black mark above the lips... My eraser decided to participate into the project without asking.

I'll maybe add some faint shades of hot pink...
Hair, makeup, lips, possibly irises...

What do you think?
