My 365 Project – Day 1 to Day 3

I am either a frustrated artist or an artist who never had the chance to bloom. I wish that I soon discover that I am the latter, because that means that I still have a chance of becoming a creative soul.

A friend of mine assured me that art takes practice, more practice, and a heckload of more practice. He suggested that I do my own 365 project–do one drawing a day.

And so I did… I started off with drawing Jingjing, the panda Fuwa of the Beijing Olympics for Day 1. I just came from Beijing last July, so I had quite a number of Fuwa souvenirs (including a full doll set, w00t~) Will post pics as soon as I can. I also intend to draw the rest of the Fuwa… That’d cover 4 more days, haha.

Day 2 is Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker’s padawan in 2008’s Star Wars Clone Wars movie. I couldn’t get her face right at that angle though. More practice needed… I’m also thinking of coloring her in. I suck at coloring, so I’ll give it a try one day. And maybe draw her in a different angle too.

My 365 project can be found in my Flickr photostream… Lookie at the right side.

Still thinking about what to draw for Day 3. will be my first attempt in watercoloring since the 1st grade 😀 I’ll do a render of a photo taken by a good friend of mine. It’s a ferris wheel in an abandoned amusement park in Ho Chi Minh, Saigon in VietNam:
