    day eight – star

    dear reader, this is probably my favourite in terms of how it turned out with colour! i did end up using watercolour’s for this look. i know i know. it’s not ink, however once it gets on the paper, there is no going back… like ink. so i ended up doing a galaxy theme, cause i recently perfected a piece that was set in a galaxy. i don’t know when i will post that… but here this is for now! – day eight : star –   media: XL Canson Mix Media sketchbook, Pental Arts Colour Brush (#101 black), Yarka Watercolour Palette, Muji Ink 0.38 Pen this look turned out…

    day seven – exhausted

    dear reader, here is a look representing how i will look tomorrow morning after studying all night for my midterm. yes, i have a midterm early in the morning tomorrow, and here i am posting this. i’m posting this early, because i need to go study… anyways, here’s one of my favourite illustrations, that i can definitely imagine myself in for late night studying at two am, with a nice warm cup of tea. or even while arting and watching gilmore girls in my bed. – day seven : exhausted – media: XL Canson Mix Media sketchbook, Pental Arts Colour Brush (#101 black), Muji Ink 0.38 Pen the look consists…

    day six – drooling

    dear reader, first of all, i finally posted on time in a couple days! it’s been a while. i’m happy that its done now for the day cause now i need to go study for my midterm that it two days! yikes. anyways, the concept for this piece wasn’t too hard to decide on, cause i knew right away, that it would be interesting to design some sleepwear. i instantly wanted to do some chic victorian night dress, but i decided that if the prompt was going to be drooling, i’d need to design something not so chic. – day six : drooling –  media: XL Canson Mix Media sketchbook,…

    day five – chicken

    dear reader, I know what you all are wondering, in what way could someone represent a chicken in a decent modest fashion look? well, I have figured it out. it wasn’t easy to say the least. I went through many different roughs and ideas before I finally settled on this look. it’s not exactly perfect, but it does work. I took the theme of chicken, and sort of went … left. think about chicken wire and the boning technique used in some avand grade pieces before looking at the illustration below. – day five : chicken – media: XL Canson Mix Media sketchbook, Pental Arts Colour Brush (#101 black), Muji…

    day four – spell

    dear reader, this might be my favourite look in terms of it being heavily inspired by a very close place in my heart. the place is hogwarts. i mean, i did say that this blog and my instagram feed is slowly showing how much of a hufflepuff I am (right now just with the colour palette). don’t worry, more will definitely be coming soon! anyways, back to the look. it is greatly inspired by everything inspired by harry potter, and hogwarts. i mean the entire look is black and yellow! I took inspiration from the classic snape turn in the first movie with his robe swirling around majestically behind him.…

    day three – toasted

    dear reader, a new inkvember is here! who would have thought it would be coming so soon, with all the work I have! yet here I am once again procrastinating doing this instead of working on my assignments. anyways, this is one of my favourite looks so I hope that you all will love it as much as I do! it is of the theme toasted, which I think the look represents well. I feel like this look would be perfect for the super cold windy snowstorm days here in Canada. pushing through the snow coming down hard, but still looking cute in this look! – day three : toasted…

    day two – tranquil

    dear reader, days pass by filled with math equations left and right. filled with studying for midterms and few hours of sleep. filled with work and at-home tutoring. filled with starting new projects each and everyday. filled with days of no sleep and just constant studying. filled with “self-care” days turned into seeing people and catching up on inktober. that’s how my life has been like for the past few weeks. whenever I have even the littlest bit of time, i’m trying to stay in touch with friends, or trying to catch up on inktober. I am still very behind on it, but it’s going. I really am hoping for…

    memories from eid

    Eid Mubarak !!! here’s a lil bit about this eid, which is called eid-ul-adha. it is celebrated on the 10th day of the last month of the islamic calendar, after muslims from around the world complete pilgrimage, or hajj, to Mecca, Saudia Arabia. it’s one of the few things muslims should do, but only if they are able to afford it, however it’s not compulsory in islam. another reason why this eid is important, is due to muslims sacrificing an animal, usually goats, or cows, to commemorate the sacrifice of Prophet Ibrahim or Abraham. these are just a few basic things you should know about why we celebrate eid-ul-adha! we’ve been celebrating eid all of our lives, and it’s honestly the few days thats we go hardcore party mode… well kind of. for me eid is my favourite day,…
