Poster design for my final product, a movie review poster. I quite like the poster design, simple set, with the main character( the girl) and the director both dressed in red. The photo quality is quite bad as i literally took a picture of my computer screen as this is a word document and i really dont know how else to put it on wordpress.

Clearer view of cockroach
This SIA is on dissection of a cockroach and looks rather disgusting so I made mine more aesthetically appealing by adding this cute cockroach everywhere. I think this is so cute that I do not even find my cockroach dissection disgusting anymore.
Along with the last one, this is one of my better sketches. Technique-wise, this one is better than the last one but it has a more common and boring subject matter and thus, does not stand out as much as the last. I think i rendered the tomatoes well, I even like sketching round objects know to try out my “shade to make round objects look round” technique. I like the Spring Onion too though I was quite worried about it when I started sketching due to its root. i realise that just bringing out the root on the whole looks better and it turned out better than expected.
Pencil sketch, 2008, A3
The scanner’s not really good at bringing out the contrast of this sketch as this is quite a light toned piece. However, I think this is one of the best i have done. I think the shading for the pot is well done as after much practice as shown earlier on, i have a better grasp of shading so as to make objects look “round” and 3-dimensional. I also like the pie/puff/big cookie-like thing with the fork. Overall, I think that my art teacher placed this composition well as it reminds me of a afternoon’s tea for a lazy Sunday afternoon. Maybe this is my motivation to do a good job.
I think the colours are contrasting as the pot is black while the glass is transparent. I think I have done the shading for both quite well. For the pot, I am trying to show its smooth texture and the glossyness of it while for the two bottles, I am trying to portray the transparency of the bottles. Though i think both are quite well done, I think in a way they do not belong well together due to the too harsh a contrast, which became even greater thanks to the scanner.
Sketch of a jar and a random ornamental item. First one up in my next series of pencil sketches this was done rather early and thus, lacks maturity. I also think the rendering and shading is not particularly well done but then again, practice makes perfect.
Done in 2007.
This is a sketch done during my art lesson and depicts a sketch of my teacher’s boot. For still life sketches, I am more used to drawing fruits and vegetables so it is quite a new experience to draw something new. The hardest part about this is to show the creases of the shoe for a more natural look, and to use light and shadow to portray this. I think shows quite good effort and is one of my best among a collection of shoe drawings and I think i did well on the shading and rendering of this sketch, making it look very realistic.
