Done last year, for the assignments. I like this one quite a lot!

But for improvements, the building isn’t straight. It’s slanted, especially the last tower on the right. The statue of the horse is quite nice though šŸ˜€

My Pets in Watercolour September 17, 2008

The one at the top right is my poor hamster Snowie (that’s not the real name anyway), here is how she died:

One fine Sunday morning I was feeling hungry so I cooked a bowl of maggie mee. It was spicy flavoured, hot and steamy and I have to wait for it to cool before I eat it. So I picked Snowie from her cage and put her on my hand and started feeding her sunflower seeds while waiting for the noodles to cool. And my hand was pretty near the bowl of hot noodles, in fact right on top of it.

Snowie sniffed around and jumped right into the bowl of hot noodles, thinking “hmm,… it must be tasty…” and of course that must have been the last thing she ate. (This sounds soĀ sadistic.)

And of course I tried to save her (I am not heartless) so I quickly picked her out of the noodles (and scalded my hand too) and ran her under the cool water tap (even though her most hated hobby is bathing) but she was cooked and burnt and passed away shortly after.

And I buried her under a very young coconut tree/sprout (in a box coffin lined with white tissue and her favourite food – peanuts and sunflower seeds) under my block. Here’s what happened, the coconut tree started dying soon after I buried Snowie underneath. And it died shortly after too… while the rest of theĀ coconutĀ sprouts planted with it are now big coconut trees.

Oh yes, that was 6 years ago -.-”

And the one on the bottom right, which you can only see the head, is Xiao Bai (she looks just like Snowie) and someone gave her to me. More like abandoned. Xiao Bai gave birth to a litter of pups (baby hamsters) and the ex-owner decided to keep 2 of the young hamsters instead and gave her away to me, together with her other hamster baby which no one else wanted. I gave the other hamster baby (called Robin) to my classmate.

And that was 4 years ago.

The big big big pet on the left is my guinea pig Miao Miao! Her initial name wasn’t that, but one day (in year 2006 end) she was sick, so Hanqing and I took her to the vet. And the guinea pig’s name was asked for, and we didn’t know what to put. And theĀ brilliantĀ idea came – name it Miao Miao, after Miao Hanqing, and that’s how Miao Miao’s name came about.

Miao Miao still lives happily andĀ healthilyĀ in my house now, with the other guinea pig, Fatball. (:

Sorry if the whole story above has nothing to do with art at all. But I’ll put this post under writings, I wrote a lot ^^

A more modern version of the dancers. The hat looks weird, out of place, cut into half, I’m not sure why though.

These were done for coursework too, the last one is a gymnast I think. Personally I like the second one more.

Done for coursework, when I was unsure of what to do.

These were done very long time ago, I think it was during sec 2 == I feel like posting stuff I did since I was 4 years old, I drew more often then. This whole year is just video video video and coursework, haven’t drawn anything with a pencil for ages.

And I don’t really like the second building, the shading is uneven already, and there are random deep black lines, in an attempt to make the whole thing straight. I seem to have trouble making buildings look straight.

Not sure if it’s dead or if it’s winter, when the leaves all fall off. I seem to have something for environment these days, I like lovely green trees, not dead ones. I think I should work harder to help the environment (after all the discussion in class about disposal lunch boxes and watching Wall.E)

Did it last year for assignments, it’s a bit too large to scan in fully. Oh this one shows I’m not good at pencil drawings sadly. I really have no idea how to do the background and the face.

Done in oils. The hat isn’t that great, but overall I think it’s still quite okay. Taken by camera, so I think it looks flat/shrinked here.

Oh there is this silver “thing” on the hat, which I sort of gave up on, the silver chains etc all took a lot of time.

Not much comments too. Did it for coursework, after the trumpet in watercolour.

[edit] I think I like it more now, the proportions are the most alright of all my drawings recently šŸ˜€ [/edit]
