Plates and Projects (Part 2 of 2)

Date created: Dec. 8, 2010

Look at my messy room! It was just so clean and tidy an hour ago. But since I was doing projects and experiments… everything became distorted. LOL. Because when I needed a certain material, I tend to search it in every corner of my room, and most of the time I usually search it in a hurry and leave things flying around… thus everything became messy.

I love this plate so much! I actually re-did it. On the right side was done at school with not much of a reference, because there was no model in front of us which I thought there would be, but my prof was weird so we relied on photographs which I didn’t have (So I did some experiments). And on the left side is the 2nd take which was occupied with a reference.

DSC01404_thumbI was surprised myself that I was able to do this, LMAO! But somehow, it looks better in camera than in RL. Smile 

*Sigh* after hours and hours of work, I only manage to have a grade of 1.50 which is equivalent to 90-91 % grade…

My beloved Jaejoong! I hope I’ll finish this one very very soon. And note that this is not a “Vector”, I simply traced the lines of his face with a tablet for practice, then I colored and also drew his hair with my own techniques based on the reference I have.image_thumb[2]

This is a fanart of Kyou Kara Maoh, yep lol, I should finish this one too.

 

I’m so happy! Sayawit 2010

This Sayawit 2010 [Translate: Sayaw (Dance) + Awit (Sing)] poster was designed by me, Eizu, and I saw the printed poster just before I went home In love *Sparkles*. I’m very honored to be a FEUCSO (Far Eastern University Central Student Organization) Committee Member. I know that there’s lots of activities and tasks, but what’s important is you learn how to enjoy the value of contribution <3

 

Thanks for reading! Fighting!!!

Plates and Projects (Part 1 of 2)

There’s a sudden change of situation now that I’m having my 2nd sem in Fine Arts. Lots of major subjects, lots of plates (most are assignments *sigh*), and most of my professors seem to give grades lower than what I expected, I don’t even know if it’s deserving, coz some of my classmates’ plates which had a very professional creative render only got 89-90% grade. I guess favoritism is at stake.

MEANING: Work harder + inspiration – (procrastination + distraction) = higher grades

Imagine, have you ever heard a professor suggest you shift to tourism? How rude, he’s very self centered and doesn’t even appreciate much of his student’s arts.


Some of my works

I practiced sculpting, but sad to say is that this one is a failure. Lol, too many cracks. This is a self hardening clay, you can buy this at any art or crafts store, it’s cheap and good for practice. I’ll be self studying this sooner or later <3

This one above was not drawn by me, but by my good friend Tekla* (Thank you!!!) This was her final plate last sem which was recently returned to her. She used oil and a cardboard-like linen board. She’s very talented and nice >.<

She gave it to me because she wants to have my self portrait drawing (below), meaning we had an art trade.

DSC01396

I gave this sketch to her, which she liked. I was practicing on drawing myself through speed sketching, and I guess it turned out well but not the exact thing as to my reference.DSC_0062

This was my reference picture which at the same time printed in 3r format, LOL she also took this with her!!! I got myself a new fan, lol!

And below is a sketch of something related to Cleopatra design. This was drawn at the back of the paper where my self portrait was drawn.DSC01398

*End of Part 1 of 2. Part 2 contains school plates, computer art Wips (Work in Process) and my organization activity in school.

Christmas Thoughts

Image216Christmas is almost here, and I have no budget to buy gifts for my treasured ones lol. Anyways I’m now thinking about Christmas presents that will be great and at the same time using my talent to save money.

What’s your Christmas idea? Smile

My first dish

On Nov. 26, 2010, I had my first experience in cooking!!! It was so fun, and tiring at the same time lol! But at least it tasted good. T.T *Tears of Joy*
DSC00908
My first ever dish is a Korean food [Korean Tofu stew]. My recipe was from Maangchi. She’s very informative and nice. ^_^

Lol! Up here is my “Baunan” or my packed lunch. My first time doing it in college. I’m now a conscious person in money. >.< Hehe, the Toy story spoon and fork is so cute! Open-mouthed smile
Remember, beware of your budget and save Mother Earth at the same time! ^_^

School update

DSC00870
Drawfun “assignment”. Good luck to us students, another assignment is given. But I’m also quite excited finishing this one. XD We will use a craft cartolina brown paper, charcoal, white pastel, and sephia-related pencils.
Thanks for reading!

What a tiring day!

11-08-10 Tiring day.

Ok I just experienced another boring, tiring, irritating day. I was very hopeful to have a POL 1N (Political Science) subject which I really need. Since I only have 14units, and with a hole of 4 hours during Saturday, I could never find my semester less boring. Well, good thing I DID EVERYTHING I COULD and finally made my wish granted from 8:50am to 2:15pm, FINALLY after 5 long hours (4th day). I’m so fed up waiting. I can’t believe the management was this complicated, most of the people managing this event said that I have no other choice since POL 1n was already full (which was false), others said it doesn’t show in my record that I could take it, maybe because it was too advance for me ,etc. Though I was so disappointed with what they told me, someone even told me "ang kulit kulit mo naman eh, sabi ng wala ng available eh!” in front of other people"  this kind of response made me wanna burst out with anger but I just decided to calm down and didn't lose hope.

Since I know that I can take an advance subject, (I know coz I was able to add 2 subjects last sem), I didn't stop from inquiring even if it meant waiting in line again. And finally, an Adviser/Encoder gave me a note allowing me to take POL1N.

Well, I wish they have at least posted the available subjects and schedule AND MANUALS for more information the result could’ve been better. I’m not the only student who’s been here and done these, in fact many students came out to be diffident so I was lucky enough to have my Mom who guided me well through the phone and some friends who gave me options and advices. I actually handled this for 4 days, so have you ever experienced a 4 day enrollment?

I just want to RANT to remove all the painful moments I encountered for 5 days.  I wish FEU put more approachable and knowledgeable encoders next enrollment.  And tnx to Ate Alma who is always approachable and knows every answer to my question, except she's only assigned to encode for the transferrees.

I did everything, and somehow it’s worth it. They were saying all kinds of negative words, and I’m tired of it! Well waddya look at here, I got what I wanted and NEEDED, so thanks for the guidance from some of the people that were there who actually gave me a helping hand, and of course almost all of the credit goes to my Mom, who is very supportive, thanks! I love you Open-mouthed smile

So now, I have 17 units included are 11 units of complete major subjects.  Hereinafter I’m a person who have a very disappointing schedule because every Tuesday and Friday , both 7:30am to 6:00pm with 3 hours vacant in the morning. I really don't like my current class schedule. Sad smile So I guess I’ll be heading out to the library Nerd smile But during lunchtime I would be like… eating alone Crying face

I got a GWA of 1.17, four flat uno (1.00) but sad to say is that I’m not qualified for an automatic full scholarship because I’m an irregular student, so I’ll just do my best and work harder and hope to be a dean’s lister.

 

After a hard time, it’s fashion design crime!

Anyways after this, I hurriedly went out and search for a bus heading out to “Fairview”. Yay! Another new adventure! It was my first time riding a bus here in Manila.

It was quite disappointing on how old the bus is, but I was kinda happy and excited because I’m riding it for the first time on my own. It’s an old bus imported from Japan, Flirt female Fangirl mode lol, so I was imagining how mangas or Japanese had ridden this bus during ancient times (or way back, just a figure of speech lol).

Then I arrived to FIP (Fashion Institute of the Philippines) safely! My classmates were  like… Whoa! So social. Most of them were English speaking, they came from LA, I think. Well anyways, I really expect a lot from this class! I want to learn so much, because I want to expand  my creativity with fabrics. I wish to be successful as soon as possible.

After the class, I was troubled how to get back home to our apartment here in Manila at Sta. Mesa, good thing I came back safely LOL! Smile

 

Here’s an art for the day! Kim Jaejoong!

DSC00362DSC00355

He never failed to entertain me. XD He’s very clumsy (I think, based on his videos) but he’s still lovable LOL! Not to mention how sweet and strong his voice is.

I know that there were some errors in this drawing, I’ll practice more ^_^ BTW, this was drawn on October 24. Smile

My mom’s bday

I really love my mom! XD Though I didn’t have any physical gift to present to her, I did manage to do my best at school, so I guess it’s considered a gift for her. Hehe.

We had a family time together here in Manila, they (My parents and brothers) came from Subic for a double purpose. Since my classes have started this Nov. 3, they went here in Nov. 6 (my mom’s bday) so that my brother and the things we needed can be transported here in Manila. So hence forward this was an opportunity to celebrate here.

Yummy! Kenny Rogers!
Though I forgot how this food was called, because my priority and the
only thing I know was eating! XD But I should really be FIGURE conscious BY now. coz I'm really gaining weight) Haha.

Yummy Pocky! After months of not eating you. >w<DSC00403Testing my photography skills. It turned out nicer than I thought. This was taken at Jollibee, the day after the birthday, we went to Panay Ave. to show me the way to get to FIP (Fashion Institute of the Philippines) for my Fashion Design course
on my own the next day. Lol.

1st semester has finally ended

My first semester here has finally ended. I’m studying at FEU by the way. So many things to do so little time. I also had a bag making 1 class in the FIP: Fashion Institute of the Philippines, it went well but it was so hard because you have to be patient and you should persevere to finish a project, you have to manage time well. It would take you hours to finish one bag, nevertheless you should take care of the quality too.

Here are some pictures (click it to view a larger pic size):

Some of the many plates (projects) I made

DSC09854DSC09855

Ahh, Landscape… Sad smile It was hard, our Prof said that if we were the original Photographer there would be plus points, but I guess he forgot about that, lmao. Anyways I took the picture from San Miguel in Shaw Boulevard. Smile I want to improve badly.

DSC09858

Guess who this is???? It’s Hermione!!! OTL, I’ll practice and practice more on realism. Open-mouthed smileDSC09862

Ahh! My hands! It really was a hard thing to do, the cutting and all. Anyways, while doing my finals plate, I’m so into DBSK. Their talent is so out of this world! AKTF!!! Too bad I only recently knew about them, sighs** anyways JYJ Fighting!!!DSC09875

I kinda like this design. I RETOUCHED or EDITED IT SEVERAL TIMES ALREADY!!! I was so tired because it was not satisfying and unprofessional like. This is a logo of our business project or whatsoever. My friends said that it was nice, groovy, and some said it was childish and that I should just make a new one. BUT! I’m so tired and just added some glitters, LMAO OTL. :)DSC09920DSC09938

Ahhh!!!!!!!!! My bro’s best friend pictured me. XD I’m not really good at piano, the only song I still know is Canon but there were skips and errors. And the other songs I knew were all erased in my memory otl. BTW, it’s kinda weird, when I was cleaning some things, I saw my autograph book when I was in elementary, and I wrote that my dream would be a great pianist someday. LOL! I guess our young hearts have a road twisted when we eventually would grow to something different.DSC09977

Now that semester ended, I’m here at my hometown, SUBIC, having a nice time, and working out my butt to get some things done. Here’s my working place atm, hahahaha.

TOO BAD I FORGOT MY PEN FOR MY TABLET, AAAAHHHH, I HAVE TO WAIT TILL WEDNESDAY TO START CG-ING (my bro will deliver it) OTLLLLLL. >.<

Some fashion things

Here’s the graduation show of FIP. It was so professional and breathtaking! I love the show! Too bad I came late and watched from the 3rd floor of SM North, nevertheless the experience was worth it!

DSC09814

The picture above, is the presentation of this year’s winner of the best collection! The designer (in the center) is so lucky!!! He’ll get to travel in Paris as the grand prize!!! Faints*DSC09833

 

Ok, these are my projects! Yup I made ‘em, next time I’ll be better!!! SmileDSC09811DSC09806

My two other bags aren’t posted here, I’ll picture it sooner, XD

DSC09891

Oh, and this (above) is the fashion show of FEU last October 15. It was quite disappointing because I slept for 30 minutes waiting for it to start, ahh, that was the best nap I’ve ever had. Their preparation was rather poor, it was re-sched from 1pm to 4pm, but it started at about 5:15pm, nevertheless the show was quite good. There were RTW and Houte Coutures that were presented in themes.

Thanks for reading! Have a nice day!!!
