Konbanwa. _φ(* ̄ω ̄)ノ It’s the new year~ (U´・ェ・)ノ♪゚あけましておめでとうございます。Here is a drawing of Armin Arlet that I’d done in 2015 but hadn’t had the time to put it up (various events during december made me busy~ ू(・ิ ॄ・ิू๑)):

Armin Arlet (lookalike) :x

 

My honest opinion is it doesn’t look like Armin at all… 。・゚(゚⊃ω⊂゚)゚・。 I felt that it was easy to draw but not easy to draw it right? (¬з¬) I would like to try drawing Armin again~ (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧

An extra on how I drew Armin :3

 

Since it’s the new year, let’s talk about new year resolutions? …φ(ω ̄*)

  1. Exercise regularly and eat in moderation:  This was my new year resolution for 2015 and I’m making it top the list for 2016 again. This is how important it is to me I guess? And I’m worried I would forget it so I’m penning it down as my new year resolution. φ(゚ェ゚♡)
  2. Reduce time spent on social mediaI got addicted to scrolling through newsfeed I find it dangerous. This is really to free up some time so I can do the things I actually would rather be doing. (∩⌣̀_⌣́)
  3. Take action‘I would like to do this… I would like to improve on that…’ I read up, I research, I think through it but I never follow up with any action. My excuse: I’ve no idea how to get started. When all I need to do is take that small step forward. In 2016, I want to get the action started. ╭(๑ ॔ㅂ ਂ ॓)و ̑̑
  4. Sleep lessFor someone who loves sleeping, this is going to be difficult. >.< But I would sacrifice sleeping in for 1-2 hours to getting more things done this year. Lets try to get up when I automatically wake up. Cos I’d a habit of going back to sleep even though I woke up already^^;;  Here’s to more effective weekends… 
  5. To try not to get too worked up easily: When there’s problems or conflicts, I get too upset easily. Instead of sulking and getting angry (which I know already doesn’t help), I hope to become more mature and handle things more calmly.

I sound so gung-ho… Would I be alright? >.<;; Lastly, thanks for everything in 2015. ₍՞◌′ᵕ‵ू◌₎♡ I may be being impolite but please continue to look after me in 2016. <(@´_`@)> 今年もよろしくおねがいします。

That’s all I guess? Bye bye and see you again soon~

ヾ(◜▿‾ 三 ‾▿◝)ノ

Edited: List of resolutions getting longer… ^^;; I need to think about how am I going to achieve all these resolutions though (҂⌣̀_⌣́)

 

Gumi Drawing

Konbanwa♪╰(•̀ 3 •́)━☆゚.*・。゚Here is a drawing of Gumi that I’d done last weekend: ^^

BeautyPlus_20151115183436_save

This is a challenging piece for me because of the details. ( ー̀εー́ )  That’s why I guessed I had lots of fun drawing it.(ᗒᗨᗕ) And anyway I really like how it turns out in the end? Ehehe♥‿♥ //rollsabout//

By the way, I’m excited because AFA is coming up this weekend. (╯✧∇✧)╯And the following weekend I’m going to Taiwan^^ After that, it’s christmas~ And then the new year(⌯⌅⌄⌅) That sounds like lots of fun? ε٩( ºωº )۶з

I kind of felt bad though .( ̵˃﹏˂̵ ) Because I would be away from work for a bit. And the past 2days I was sick and absent from work too. I’m sorry I would work hard again when I’m back. ᕙ(▀̿̿Ĺ̯̿̿▀̿ ̿) ᕗ

That’s all. Bye bye( ・_・)ノ

Kagamine Rin Drawing

Ohisashiburi desu. …φ(ω ̄*) It’s been a long time since I last visited wordpress. Let me see… my last post is about 10months ago. Ahaha…. (・0・。(・-・。(・0・。(・-・。) This is my most recent drawing and it’s of Kagamine Rin, one of my favourite vocaloids ( •⌄• ू )✧ (my number one favourite would be Gumi ehehe ₍՞◌′ᵕ‵ू◌₎♡):

I want to draw Gumi too. (⌯⌅⌄⌅) Many things happened in these 10months and now the year is almost ending. My last post was about 2015 new year resolutions. Have I somewhat achieved them? I wonder.. Let’s see. ( ー̀εー́ )

First one is “Eat in moderation, exercise regularly”. That I’ve been doing^^

The second one is “Attend drawing classes faithfully”. This year I didn’t attend any classes at all. Now that I think about it, I didn’t draw as much compared to last year. I wonder what have I been doing with my time? Hmm… ( ゚ー゚) Weekdays I have work… and weekends I spent most of it… going out to have fun! I believe :P So I’ve been cosplaying, dancing and attending events. (´⌣`ʃƪ)  I’ve decided. My wish now is to just spend more time on drawing for the rest of the year. Perhaps I shall put my quota at at least 1 drawing a month. So that’s at least 2 more drawings for the year. Yosh ( ु⚈᷁௰⚈᷁ ू)

The third and final resolution is “Learn a new dance”. Ah I believe this I did it too. In fact, I learnt two new dances, Natsukoi Hanabi and Kinyoubi no Ohayo. ୧( ⁼̴̶̤̀ω⁼̴̶̤́ )૭

I guess that’s all for now. Ah yes. I’m in the midst of revamping my blog. 8D Let’s have fun hahaha! Bye bye ヾ(´¬`)ノ

2015 New Year Resolution

I forgot to write down my new year resolution for 2015. (* ̄∇ ̄)ノ

1. Eat in moderation, exercise regularly
2. Attend drawing classes faithfully
3. Learn a new dance

I can only think of 3 for now. I’ll add on more if I can come up with anything else. ^^

I wish everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR~(*´ω`*)

Thank You(‘:

I’m too lazy to do a proper post on reflections for 2014. m(_ _)m So here’s a quick post for me to do a quick reflection of 2014. (Sorry, I didn’t even prepare a last drawing of the year ;_; I feel like a failure T-T)

I recall greeting 2014 being a ball of mess. It was years of stress taking a toil on my body. I fell sick and was a vulnerable baby. I couldn’t sleep and couldn’t eat. I became weak. Not only had my body suffered, I was emotionally unstable. I kept crying uncontrollably and was hallucinating. Days passed without me knowing. I was out of the world and only moments do I recall my painful existence on earth. I was too skinny, too unloved, too unsociable, friendless and too self conscious. I was upset at myself for not being able to cope in university. I was miserable and became depressed. I could not attend school as a result and had to apply for leave of absence, and I stayed home to recuperate for the first 3 months of the year. It was a period of fragility. Like a broken piece of cup, I was desperately trying to fix myself. During this period, my mum took leave from work to care for me. My relatives also came to visit me. They brought me out to eat, to shop and to have fun in order to inject some joy in me. But I was a dark cloud unable to smile. But I slowly began to smile.

I started to draw and I also started a blog to share my thoughts and drawings. And I was grateful for every comment, every reader, every subscriber and every like that I received here. T-T It makes me feel warm and fuzzy on the inside. I will take the chance to thank you guys for reading my blog and supporting my drawings. (❁´‿`❁)*✲゚* I will continue drawing in 2015 and this time round I’m hoping to take drawing classes to learn more about drawing and create even more~
( ´ ▽ ` )

In addition, I realised that many people loved and cared for me. I realised the simple joys in life such as being together with my family. Maybe it was the break from school and studies but I felt the warmth and my sadness slowly melt away. I became a happier person day by day.

I decided to work while I waited for the next school semester to start in August. Work kept me occupied so that my thoughts doesn’t stray. At UOI, I made friends and met many kind people. I’m grateful for the kindness shown to me once again.ヽ(;▽;)ノ

And then school began in August. It’s like a recurring nightmare all over again. Classes I took with beads of sweat and sweaty palms. I felt my chest constricting. And I thought, “Not again”. Every piece of Math homework given to us was like a knife stabbing into my heart. It stepped on my self esteem and made me feel like a failure. I contemplated for a very long time before I decided to give it all up. I seek opinions from everyone I could and had long discussions with my parents. Everybody has different views and it got me all confused at one point. But I listened carefully to my heart and I think it’s crying.

I took another break from school feeling at a loss. I wasted my school fees. I started working temporarily at Maybank. I felt handicapped at work. I thought, ‘if I quit school, I’m only left with an A Level certificate. What could I do?’ But I realised I’m happy. I made new friends and my colleagues are nice people. This is only a temporary job so I’m thinking about the next step. Should I go into childcare? I love kids and I feel that they will provide me chances to grow and develop as a person. What about becoming a florist? Being surrounded by flowers and learning flower arrangement can showcase your creativity and spark off inspiration. What about studying design? I was looking at graphic design and it brought a whole new perspective to my life.

This could be just me simplifying things. I know that no road is ever easy. I will surely meet with greater challenges than before. Would I be able to handle it? I don’t know. For all I know, it might be another wrong choice… or another breakdown for me. But I could only find out if I try. So I’m going to be braver than before and set out to pursue my dreams. What are my dreams? A designer? A florist? A teacher? Frankly, at this point I have no idea. But I know I don’t have to rush myself to make a decision. I couldn’t make a decision in the first place. Lol After all, life has its own plans for you. There’s no need to needlessly worry. Right? ^^

Last year I ended 2013 sickly. I’m glad to say that this year I end 2014 in pink health (extremely healthy in fact probably a bit too healthy I gained so much weight just omfg lol). To end this post, a big thank you to everyone who has played a part in my life. I’m really grateful. :’)

See you again in 2015!

On a side note, yay I going for my first countdown concert tomorrow! It would be the first time I stayed out so late. XP I felt probably a little rebelious. But yup I’m going to have lots of fun! Right? There I go again doubting everything and overthinking. It’s a bad habit…

Pokemon Bulbasaur & Eevee Drawings

Last week, I drew two Pokemon, Bulbasaur and Eevee: (*´▽`*)

2014-11-23-15-40-32_deco 2014-11-29-21-40-52_deco~2

I made too many mistakes drawing Eevee. |_・) Oh well.. I did my best to fix it. Haha XP Anyway, drawing them kind of brought me back to my childhood~ ల(*´= ◡ =`*) Those days were spent watching Pokemon, playing with figurines and game consoles. (≖ ‿ ≖) Life was so… how do I describe it? young I guess. Hehe 川´・ω・`川

2014-11-23-17-06-41_deco

So I still have one more month at Maybank before my contract is up! It’s time to make decisions again. All these while I have been swinging back and forth between decisions to quit college or to continue. Mathematics is just not for me. ヾ(×× ) ツ I might stop pursuing a degree in Mathematics but I know the learning never stops. I’m looking at other schools or courses to see if there’s anything of interest. Or I might just start working. It’s about time to step into the working society anyway. I guess.

One last note to self: It’s never the end. Only the beginning.

That’s all. Bye bye! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

One Piece Luffy and Chopper Drawings

Konnichiwa( ´ ▽ ` )ノ Last night, I drew Chopper and Luffy from One Piece ^^:

I have never watched the anime because it’s such a long series (ノ^∇^) but these two are so cute I have to draw them. (*^▽^*) This is a tribute to One Piece in view of McDonald’s release of One Piece collectibles. (*‿*✿) This week’s is Robin and Zoro~

2014-11-22-22-58-37_deco (1)

If you follow my instagram, you would have seen me playing with them XD Collecting these toys can be so fun and exciting~ though you may say it just took up more space in my overly cluttered room… ≖‿≖ In the meantime, I will be waiting to collect Chopper and Luffy(*´▽`*)
