~ Pat Mcgrath Inspired D&G AW13 Makeup ~

The key products to brighten up my face were highlighters, white glitter, concealer, white and nude pencils.
For balance, I used MUA’s camel shade powder to contour the eyes and cheeks. A dark dessert rose blush was then added.
I applied natural corner lashes and tight lined my upper lash line and outer V with black gel liner. The lips are in MAC’s Blankety.

~ Cheongsam Wolf ~

I wanted to do something with a bit more effort. For years I’ve been drawing from imagination and stopped referring to images. I wasn’t improving and so I’ve come back with this.
Inspirations:
- Cheongsam dresses
- Asian influences on the catwalk and high street
- Street Fighter & SNK (I realised half way through, she looks like Maki from SNK…not intended T_T)
- Pose and body of Sistar’s Hyorin 
- Shading loosely from tutorial

I worked a lot more between starting and finishing this and so my focus went out the window…

Image I did of Kyuhyun for my bestest pal’s birthday!! 

Every occasion we used to write and draw long letters to each other to be thankful because I think it&#8217;s important to be thankful. With age, our priorities had to change and so it felt like there was 4 years of silence - but this year, she wrote me a letter with this picture~! The words meant a lot!감사합니다 Thank you XOXO

~ DBZ ~Whipped this up in a few hours because DBZ recently came to mind so I started watching Dragon Ball again today just to have some TV on in the background. When I was a kid I sooo wanted to be in this cartoon &gt;&lt; not for how perverted it is though, just for the cool stuff so this image brings me a lot of joyI went for the male version of the eyes for a tomboyish look and referenced from a picture/screen grab of Videl from DBGT.

~* My Gift to Susie *~

Breakfast at Darcy’s cover art/remix. Yes the background was blended in. The character and words are of course custom. I tried to copy the style using the pen tool and some  freehand but perhaps because this is not my usual style of art, I found it hard to like. I can see a couple flaws but I will not fret. 
However, because this has received a lot of love it is worth a post to say thank you! 
If you love books and literature, go see susiefjones who is just starting up her blog now!

iPad Recursion

I dunno if this is a trend or not but this was an accident…and I bet in years to come this is gonna get popular and will be more cleverly done.
Only 6 frames (so far!)
