Hello Steemit friends:
Lately I have been up to my neck in drawing projects. This scrapbook project was particularly urgent because my friend, Sylvie, is moving back to Saint Lucia tomorrow. We wanted to send her back with our love and memories. It was fun making the scrapbook and a little awkward primarily because Sylvie hates taking pictures and we can't make a scrapbook without pictures. Every time I made attempts to take pictures of her to add to the scrapbook, she would run away. I completely understand because I, too, dislike taking pictures. However, I decided to deny myself, and have been taking more pictures of myself whenever I am out and about, just in case I decide to blog about it. It is really strange for me and sometimes it makes me feel as if I am acting narcissistic in some way. One day I might just grab a random stranger off the street and ask him/her to take a picture with me. I'm not sure which is less awkward, taking a selfie or taking a picture with a stranger. I'll make
if you want to be a creative person, then don't be afraid to fail, because fail is...
and maybe that failure can be an unexpected creativity.
Creative comes from ourselves, everyone has different creativity to express themselves, this special ability can create new things or new ways that are more useful than something that ever exited before.
what a special day today! finally after having some thoughts about which are going to be my next posts I finally decided to make 3 designs that means something for the community:
Every single logo represenates the current state of your influence here on Steemit. Actually I don't want you to take this on the bad way, I'm very proud to be a minnow, so that means that there is a loooot of work to be made here to reach at least Dolphin level and.. maybe one day after 100 years reach the Whale level.
I'm going to explain briefly how I made this design... but at first I already had something on my head waitingfor this.
Building up a little bit of the middle ground before I start the details on the foreground and final dark elements over top.

This watercolor painting was inspired by watching a UFC fighter friend out here in Hawaii do his exercise routines. I love the intensity that these fighters dedicate each day, targeting their prowess to eventual ring fights.
The watercolor itself is completely monochromatic, of shades of blue. The body is shaded to contrast the lights and darks. I wanted to show the movement by creating ethereal "movement fogs" behind the fighter.

Watercolor + Pencil
This painting was done for my of my high school track & field friends during his winning javelin throw at the New Jersey state track & field finals. He ended up winning 1st place in the state, a first at my high school.
I wanted to depict the intensity of his throw by leaving some of the shaded pencil areas (such as the under arms, etc.)
On top, watercolor is used, the foreground of the person is in lighter colors contrasting with the darker shades of green/blue in the background.
Interestingly, this piece was one of the harder ones to paint, simply because of the positioning of the javelin thrower ... is very unique perspective, so careful attention was given to how parts of the body would be represented when depicted with the watercolor + pencil.
Oil on canvas
This painting was inspired by a random early morning walk across the Trocadero back in March 2011. I highly recommend going to the Trocadero at early morning to watch the sunrise behind the Eiffel Tower.
I depicted this scene using oil on canvas. Because it was early in the morning, not a lot of lighting was present, but that being said, the early morning sunrise brought shades of some yellow and orange amongst the cooler colors in the sky including purple, blues, and greens. I really loved this contrast, and felt the need to have the contrasting warm and cool colors clash.
The foreground has the Eiffel Tower as well as the Trocadero Plaza in the front.
Oil on canvas
This painting was inspired by the Buddha statue that is at my mom's local Buddhist temple in New Jersey. I loved how the statue was seated in such a peaceful way, that I wanted to oil paint it.
That being said, the scenery around it was less than desirable ... but when you are an artist, it's your job to be creative and make the painting work with the art elements of design.
I decided to go with a warm color scheme, to match with the peaceful statue feel. The background has lots of warm yellows, oranges, and touch of red in a gradient manner from the bottom to the top. The foreground with the Buddha I had painted the skin tone a bit darker (my mom wanted it lighter, but at the time I painted, for some reason, I felt darker skin tone would work better to make Buddha's robe pop out more).
I love gadgets and new toys so when I found out there was a Lego Disney Castle, I knew I had to get it. It's an online exclusive and can only be purchased on the Lego website. After purchasing from the website, it took approximately 5 days for it to arrive.
Here it is!!
我很喜歡新奇和好玩的玩具所以我知道原來Lego出了一套迪士尼城堡時, 我立刻上網看看什麼一回事。原來這套Lego是網上特別版所以在外邊買不到的．在網上付了錢之後，5 個工作天後就收到了。
My wife and I are walking home from a nice dinner when we pass by an old brownstone with a front patio. Sitting in the middle, alone on the concrete, is the large, fairly ugly, two tiered brown card catalog you see to the left.
I am smitten by it. Something about a card catalog seems to embody potential. After all, anything could be inside all those drawers.
I see this card catalog and I am overcome by a purchasing desire. I have to know more. So I leave my wife on the sidewalk and knock. A man answers. Immediately upon him opening the door it is apparent he is at least a hoarder, possibly a lunatic.
I like making stuff for my children. One of the reason is because it is quite difficult to find toys that my kids exactly want. Even if we find one, it can be pricey and mostly sold online which means I have to pay extra money for the shipping cost. The other reason is more about emotions. I want my children to remember that their mother loves them very much by making their very own toys that no one else has. Also, I want to show them that it is so much fun to be creative.
So, my daughter happens to like pretend plays. A couple of years ago, she asked if I could make an apron for her because she wanted to look like a chef. And I said yes. I used red fabric because it is bright and cheerful. A cute cupcake was sewn by hands in the middle. To give the apron a personal touch, don’t forget to write the chef’s name.
Oh, the chef needs a hat too to make her look like a professional chef. So I thought it would be a good idea to surprise her with a chef hat.
This is also one of the numerous projects I was on during my brief absence from Steemit. It entails moulding a tree trunk in such a way that it is also functions as a pen holder.
Creating a sketch on paper that would guide you in the actual work.
In moulding the tree, I made use of the subtractive method. I first created the whole tree without any space in the middle. After this I then started to cut each branches out then hollow it.
This is essentially the finishing of the work. I created a motif textured surface to give the tree a rough look.

Recently I saw a blog of a beautiful girl, she really liked my drawings, and I wanted to draw her. Very nice and beautiful girl. You have a very interesting blog and a beautiful appearance. Thank you for sharing your travels with us. ♥ I love.
The drawing took exactly 4.5 hours, used colored pencils and a black pen .
I hope you will support me. Thank you, I appreciate every your voice.

In the last episode I kind of went over how you can determine if whatever you're redeeming with points is going to be of value versus just simply buying the actual flight with dollars. But now for many people they're actually always interested in knowing what plane they will actually be flying in.
For the most part, many flights around the world are in narrow body planes (planes with single aisle) ... so for most part, planes across different airlines will have very similar seat set-up (such as 3-3 seating).
However, with the longer haul flights, it can get quite important to figure out where you will be sitting. This will definitely matter most especially with those long haul flights that are well over six hours perhaps you are going to be on one of those flights that are fourteen hours. That's very long.
And when you're on those kind of flights the
