I had some time to kill before I commuted off to class last Tuesday. So while my niece was doing ART in my room, i took some of the water she was using and doodled on a board I stretched for another painting. I was just putting colors on the board randomly and it turned out to be this colored portrait of myself. Kinda mangaish because I really wasn’t thinking back then, but in retrospect– WHAT WAS I THINKING ABOUT?

The colors really showed  the muddled and colorful and many thoughts that were inside my head that day. The forms were there too. It was fun quick and satisfying. Relaxing too ! It made me feel good just before I went to class!

This baby is drawn mostly as an experimental thing and for fun. I wanted to draw an overly made up lady and I have this picture of NEEKO (seiyuu and actress) from Japan who is a fashion icon for all things KAWAII (cute).  Harajuku is a place in Japan where fashion enthusiasts gather and show off their quirky fashion stylings in all shades of pastel and bright colors.

I love looking at them (although doubt if I will wear anything like it) and want to draw them. This is a representation of their cute quirky style, their youthfulness and creativity.

Cute, don’tcha think?

Does anyone recognize him? He’s Philipp from Kamen Rider W as played by Mr. Suda Masaki. Hands down my favorite Tokusatsu show!  He is the Human 0Wikipedia– it was said that all the earth’s knowledge was in his head. And he’s the partner of Hidari Shoutaro as well as the Right side of the two in one Kamen Rider. Check out Kamen Rider W. It’s a fun show!

I did this portrait to practice my Portrait Skills since it seems that I am lacking in it.  He was done in 3 days time because I was busy with my first impromptu Art Show.  I did most of the painting at the art show and finished up at home. I used watercolors and just had fun with it!

The most challenging was his hair, but I think it looks okay! What do you guys think?

Marikit’s Wonderland

10154228_10153991133825085_879832950_nAs I was thinking about my blog. I decided to revamp it to make it into something more personal. I am a artist and I know that my blog should reflect it completely. So with watercolors, I created this picture of me and my dog zemo (in humanform) in manga style to show who I am. The design of that art was loosely based on Alice in Wonderland therfore making it my own little fantasy world.

If you want to know how this was created jump down to the cut.
