Random Doodle: Patterns and Shapes

Well, here we are at Day 31 and it looks like I made it… I managed to post a doodle everyday for a whole month so far. Time sure flies when you’re having fun, no? :p

Anyway, today’s random doodle was done in pencils. I just cleaned it up a bit (levels, brightness) on Photoshop since as I’ve probably mentioned before, I don’t own a scanner, so I just take photos of my sketchbook using my phone camera. Weird lighting issues galore, but it’s all I got for now. XDD

In the meantime, I’m feeling a little proud of myself.

One down. Eleven more to go. Wish me luck! 😀


Happy Lunar New Year! Let’s welcome the year of the Wood Horse! ^_^


Tea Time with Coco and Amelie

So for the past few days, the opening notes to La Valse D’Amelie has been looping in my head at almost every quiet moment. Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain is one of my all-time favorite feel-good movies, so I thought I’d make a doodle on that today. As I was checking online for reference pics, I ended up spotting another title under Audrey Tautou’s name, Coco Avant Chanel. Curious, I immediately found a copy to watch.

And as a result, we get Coco and Amelie having a nice chat over warm cups of tea and cookies, LOL.

I just found it really amusing that Tautou played both characters so well, and yet at the same time they sort of bleed into each other because Tautou’s gorgeous eyes are on both Coco and Amelie. The downside to this is that while I was watching Coco Avant Chanel, my brain was asking, “Man, why is Amelie smoking…?” XDDD

Anyway, quote used in the doodle is attributed to Coco Chanel.

Good night. ^_^

“At small parties there’s never any privacy…”

A bit of sketch practice today. I was watching the first few scenes of The Great Gatsby earlier, and there was this particular scene where Jordan Baker (played by Elizabeth Debicki) was playing with her strings of pearls. There was just something about that REALLY REALLY short shot that fascinated me. I think it was the way that her fingers moved as she was just chillin’ and reclining on the sofa. Considering how bad I am at drawing hands and feet, I just really wanted to give it a shot. XDDD

…  my deepest apologies to Debicki fans. I know this doodle does her no justice. ;w;

Feels Like Chibi Godzilla…

So. I seem to have caught a cold, or something. I think that now would be a good time to mention that as much as I LOVE the current cold weather, an island girl like me just isn’t used to it. T_T

It’s also been a busy day since I still had to finish a couple of commissions, so yeah, working with a migraine and a stuffy nose just ain’t fun. It feels like I have a chibi Godzilla stomping around in my brain, going:

“IDEAS??? NEVER! GRAAAAARGH!!! >:V ”  *knocks down an idea building or two*

Okay, time for something warm to drink and maybe a paracetamol. X__x;;;

Delirium and her Mismatched Eyes

Delirium Delight Endless Sandman Neil Gaiman Fishy Psychedelic Butterflies Vertigo Comics Graphic Novel


Delirium was once Delight. And although that was long ago now, even today her eyes are badly matched; one eye is a vivid emerald green, spattered with silver flecks that move; her other eye is vein blue. Who knows what Delirium sees, through her mismatched eyes?

– Sandman #21: “Season of Mists”, preludium

Do you know why I stopped being Delight, my brother? I do. There are things not in your book. There are paths outside this garden. You would do well to remember that.

– Delirium to Destiny, in Sandman #47: “Brief Lives: 7”

Been a busy, busy day. I’m really tired,  and to be honest, I had half a mind to skip posting today. But then again, if I can’t even commit to a promise I made to myself, then I have no business committing to anything or anyone else, LOL. So yeah. Heh.

ANYWAY, I was rushing a doodle for today, and for some reason, it turned into Delirium, from Neil Gaiman’s graphic novel series, Sandman. Though I highly doubt the possibility of this, in case you have never heard of it before, go read it. It’s awesome.

I was also trying out something new in this doodle, though I’m not sure if it shows. It has something to do with Adobe Illustrator which I don’t normally touch for, like, ever. Try squinting a bit and see if you notice anything..?

LOL good night. 😀

Random Doodle: Ladies and Gentlementacles

Hehe another late post today. It’s been a busy weekend, PLUS I sort of burned out my brain watching gloriously horribad movies for a better part of the evening as I was working on some other projects (and yes, we totally have a soft spot for B movies, with their bad acting, horrible dialogue, laughable special effects, attempts at plot, and just the plain JOY IT BRINGS. Yes, I admit, it’s an acquired taste, but it’s FUN, trust me on this).

Anyway, today’s doodle is inspired by the username of a redditor that I saw while I was reading comments on some story on /r/nosleep. I guess it just sort of stuck with me, so I decided to do something about it LOL.

Also, I promise this will be the last of the storybook-paper-texture-background doodles. For now. XDDDDD

Let’s get CREATIVE!

Notepad Don't Hug Me I'm Scared DHMIS modmad fanart crazy psycho


LOL Sorry for the suuuuuuuuuuper late daily doodle post for today. I’m about three hours behind, but that’s okay. It’s been a good day, and I got to talk to my dad, so it’s time well spent. 😀

In any case, a friend has very recently introduced me to the whole Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared fandom when he posted those creepy videos (in case you haven’t seen it yet, I’ll warn you now to shoo the kids out of the room before watching it. This is NOT for them LOL) on Plurk. So I dug around a little bit and I discovered all the Tumblr fanart, particularly those made by the awesome modmad. Notepad and Time are just SO ADORBZ in their own sick, broken, homicidal way, that I guess I kinda fell in love, haha. XD

Also, I DID say that I wasn’t quite done with the whole crinkly paper background phase yet. :p

And with that, good  night. ^_^
