Ancient Chinese costume-inspired Horoscope series. 

The first of the series was Pisces (sorry for the misspell on the drawing). She just came naturally while I was drawing some chinese costume. I decided to add the scales on the sleeves, and that inspired me to name it Pisces. Pisces’ symbol is two fishes and its element is Water. Therefore, the Chinese interpretation of Pisces would be the daughter of the Water God/the dragon. Pisces are emotional and romantic. So her costume is flowy, and very elegant; and her weapon is simple and gentle.

Scorpio is the next horoscope because it is my zodiac sign. Scorpio is dark, passionate, but also very reserved. You can never see through a Scorpio. They are vengeful, and considered poisonous. Thus, her weapons are most likely small, sharp and deadly, but hard to notice.

Aries’ symbol is a ram, therefore, the ram-inspired head piece. Aries are aggressive, strong and enthusiastic. It might not be represented much by the facial expression, but the weapon is a large sword - which signified the strength and courage of an Aries. Her costume resembles an armor, representing the fighting spirit.

Some recent sketches, and some sketches that was done waaay too long ago, but never had a chance to be scanned. I don’t know what happened to the scanner, but it really degraded the quality of the pencil sketches.

It’s been a long time since I posted anything. I have been so busy with school. 
Our school has a design contest for its female mascot, so I tried out my luck. So far there hasn’t been any result. My drawing is definitely a very different style, so it is unlikely that my design would be chosen. However, I am extremely satisfied with the drawing anyway. This was the first time I drew female warrior, and I love her amour.

ethereal feeling from a photograph: experiment first with marker & pencil. My next step is to make a water color version. I feel like water color would capture the feeling better.

A random sketch - something I always like to sketch when I don’t know what to draw: bird head shaped helmet.

What I am feeling right now.
It’s snowing too much, it’s hard to walk around, it’s wet when the snow melt on your face, etc. I LOVE snow! But it would be perfect if I could be with someone, spend time watching this beautiful snow. When I don’t have anyone like that, it makes me feel lonelier.
