no school??? back to photography

Posted in journal, photo with tags , , on December 25, 2009 by yuquan

Hey listen! i really don’t mean to put it like i like to do photography more on my free time. It just so happen that i get into these stages of progress. i’m going to be going to museums the next week or 2 as much as i can to get some inspiration and some accurate reference materials. these are some of the pictures i took at the Metropolitan Museum.

i went ape shit when i saw this section of the museum. The lighting was different, it made you feel like you were really somewhere else on earth, and the lighting really set a different mood. i’m still going through my chinese cultural phase so this is just reinforcing it so much more. i am so glad i came across this section. Too bad as soon as i got there the security guard said that the museum was closing in 5 minutes.

i will definitely come back again. It was cold that day and i was running around with heavy equipment, not the best factors if you want steady hands.

speaking of photography, my cousin wants me to be the photographer for his wedding in january, so that just means more photography while i’m not in school. But have faith!! there has been some illustrations in the making. hopefully i get to work on it more and post it soon.

The Legend of White Snake

Posted in finished. with tags , on December 14, 2009 by yuquan

wowza! who’s the chick yuquan? The chick is Bai SuZhen, the protagonist to the story “The Legend of White Snake”.

TLWS is a famous fictional tale from China about a white snake demon/maiden who falls in love with a human. There has been many interpretations of it and it has been told so much that it has became a classic store. To give you an idea of what the story is about. check out here. It’s missing a lot of the details but it summarizes the story up pretty okay. I wanted to draw her with the umbrella because it was one of the important events that happened in the beginning on their first meeting and i thought if i was to do a drawing with only her in it, there needs to be something to help identify her.

There was a lot of composing going on and overall i really enjoyed drawing it. : )

fake "dream job" 2nd assignment

Posted in finished., sketch, WIP with tags , , on December 12, 2009 by yuquan

so in continuation with my last post about theĀ “dream job” assignment, a couple of months later, it’s time the professor ask for the 2nd set to the assignment. At this point i really don’t want to venture into this assignment anymore. It wasn’t something i originally wanted to do. i wrote down a couple of other things that makes America messed up and showed them to the professor. He really likes the idea about “depended on technology” and he found me this article about interacting on facebook and twitter. The author of the article emphasized on how people don’t have much of an organic experience talking face to face anymore and instead turn to internet social tools like facebook and twitter which only gives bits and pieces of info about the person thru text and pictures.

here’s what i did.

fake "dream job" 1st assignment

Posted in sketch, WIP with tags , , on December 12, 2009 by yuquan

It’s a rough semesters. To speed you the reader up to things, i got this assignment that was called “what is your dream job” and we pick something that we think is our dream job in illustrations. So originally i wanted to draw images for the book “Gulliver’s Travel” that sounds GREAT. all except that my professor played devils advocate with me and kept changing my original idea. now it evolved to drawing editorials relating to negative changes in America.

my first one was about corruption in the pharmaceutical industry. here’s my picture.

i couldn’t really put much effort into it being that it wasn’t my original dream job. if i have free time, i would go back and fix the snake, it’s supposed to be made out of pills.
