Bat on a Schtick

It's the onion master's birthday today, but I couldn't afford to hire Christian Bale. Please don't hurt me, Bob Kane/Bill Finger!

Wow! 3 months went by in a blink! Working from home is pretty hard... especially when an absurdly cute distraction is present.

Yep... more practice is in order.

Curly Wurly

Another variation to the sea dragon series, and this time based on the seahorse and lionfish.

While they are the slowest and among the smallest of their species, they make it up by their arsenal of venomous sting to ward off predators and attackers.

Week 30

Somehow, as my pregnancy progresses, my self-esteem continues to plunge downwards to the point of ridiculousness. Thanks, Joe and Andri, for putting up with me and my depressions.

An old drawing (dated 2007)

Sunrise (coloured)

Coloured with Paint Tool SAI. I had a lot of feedbacks and tutorials from Pergh (thanks everyone), but I guess I've still a long way to go before I can get this right.

Sunrise (BnW)

OMG doing wispy clouds for sunrise is so tricky! It took a lot of cross-hatching and erasing, but I decided for a clean outline anyway. Who knows when I will get around to colour this in (need a lot of practice on that part too)...

21 Weeks

My parents got Joe and me a wonderful book to read on our new journey - Someone Else to Love by Susan Polis Schutz.

Page 59 - I Am A Prisoner.
While this page doesn't really reflect how I am now, it does echo what I am feeling. There is a sudden rush of overwhelming anxiety and distress lately, like when I first hit adolescence. Suddenly everything is new, I became very conscious of myself, and I am so guilty, scared and embarrassed about everything I just want to hide away.

Why do I do that? I don't know. I guess I just feel fragile. I am no longer allowed to be who I was (page 25 reflects this so well). I became more conscious about environmental and personal hygiene, because it's not for me (the one thing I don't mind at all). Every now and then, new sensations pop up and I get freaked out so easily by it.

I am no longer in control of myself. I have to let go of so many things, especially whom I could have been. She will never be back. I will miss her. I am angry.

I don't like feeling this way.

But a good friend of mine told me, "The best things never come easy."

I am humbled, and I am happy.
