Portrait Practice – Magazine Girl

IMG_3357

Did another portrait practice sketch by drawing a model in the magazine. Again, I made a mistake of not using a pencil to sketch first, therefore I drew most of the lines by instinct and at-the-moment adjustment. In the end, the whole body proportion is not…quite..right…?

Plus the relaxed hand position in my drawing just looks as if the girl had a sore neck lol!

Portrait Practice – doodle book project

I came across doodle books by the way of online recommendations. I’m always interested in books that teaches art at book stores, and I’ve always love to watch art tutorials on youtube.

30 Day workout challenge

Part of using a planner is trying to put some organisation in my life. It’s also the place to record new commitment and project plans! The latest priority in my life is getting more healthy and fit.

For me, working out always require some discipline, whether it’s a training plan or a fixed schedule of exercise. Using the vertical calendar of the Cousin to track eating plan and exercise hours is looking to have a fruitful result! I’m already loving the dropping numbers in my weight and body fat. My next challenge is to actually take photos of my before & after, and putting it inside the planner as well…(this is going to take some courage).
