it’s no joke when I’m saying that text art is fun but it could drive me insane!
I wasn’t lying either that my last nerve wrecking piece was in 2009; 2 YEARS AGO!

here are the completed (final version) of the freelance job that I took a few months back 😉
all 3 pieces are in A5 size – double, could be triple of the normal size I usually work with
the first 2 pieces were ok; took me 2 nights each (around 6 hours?) which was rather relaxing so I really took my time with those lol
but, the last piece (blue one) took me 4 nights worth of work which I ended up cramming in 2 nights – took me nearly 10 hours =.=
I actually redid it twice; the blue one hohohoho since I misunderstood something; so yeah, more than 20 hours in total? lol 😆

it wasn’t as simple as it seems 😛
try it, and you get what I’m saying here
either way, w00t! job done!

I do, and still am loving text art!
for self satisfaction, I might try different style sometime soon 😉
it feels yucky to realise how not creative I am – truth hurts and I’m hating it!

I’ve been thinking if its possible to write codes that could do what I’m doing manually for text art – hopefully I could get my lazy ass to try it out since it’s possible but I can’t think of the exact way to do it!
totally need to revise back since I can’t code by heart anymore right now =.=




to be honest, it has been a while since I last created one until I started again earlier this month (pretty much that’s what I’ve been doing now)
I think, the last completed piece that I did was somewhere at the end of 2009 hehe
My gallery with all my text art can be seen at Adila.deviantArt

anyway, I got myself into it again when a few months ago I got contacted to do a freelancing job regarding my text art
and I said YES!
…so I have up till end of this month to finish all the text arts; 3 text arts and I’ve done 1, another piece which I just completed today need some changes so pretty much I have to redo everything from scratch lol

I’m hoping to finish this one by tomorrow or the day after and then start with the final piece which is where the real challenge begins! It’s gonna be harder than what I did in the video below

and… the piece that I need to redo later on, I recorded how I did it haha since I had a lot of people asking how I did my text art
of course there are a lot of typography artists out there that are way much better than me; with much better skills
hopefully now you know how I do mine and if you’re up for it, go on and try it!
but take note that it takes HOURS to complete a piece and lots of patience 😛
the 1st piece that I ever done took me 5-6 hours but now? well it depends; 1-3 hours are usually what it takes now for easy pieces
more complicated ones take longer, obviously! 😛

here goes! 🙂

and here’s my first ever piece that got me hooked to typography

p/s: I haven’t been going out taking photos, so no photos yet 😦 hopefully I’d be taking some good photos tomorrow! 😀
and… I think my DIY softbox is nowhere to be found, so no lego photos until I make myself a new one =.= it won’t take long but, well… lazyness FTW! 😛

Paint paint paiiiiinnt~


SHINee’s fan anyone?
I do like their songs and the clumsy, aDORKable Onew heeeeeeee~
I was bored and had too much free time (not really, but I just wanted to slack off hehe) so I ended up with this!

It’s not a new piece; I was working on it on the day I arrived in Malaysia… an hour before my flight to Alor Setar haha
yes yes, I was doing the line art and painted the eyes at KLIA =.=
that showed how bored I was 😛

It’s not completed yet; still need more touch up to be done
and… I might leave the hair part till the end since I’m bad in it lol

here’s how I did it
… I talked in such a confusing manner LOL
hopefully it makes sense xD

and here’s the result of the work in progress up till the end of the video 😉
I’m not sure when I’ll be finishing this heeeeeee~
The whole processes which you can see from the video took me nearly an hour 😛
take note that I’m not done yet with the lips part since I’ve forgotten how to do it properly, so I need to refer to some tutorials lol


Quick Update!


hows everyone doing?
London is peaceful now (or so that’s what I assume from the BBC news)
stay safe, and don’t be stupid!

anyway, a few months ago, I was contacted by someone from which is a non profit suicide awareness organisation based in the US strives to help individuals who have been deeply affected by suicide by offering them an outlet to share their stories through various means of expression

to cut things short, one of my art was exhibited as part of their event, ‘Welcome Home’– A Dance and Art Show in Chicago on 12 June 2011
wohoo! my art was seen in Chicago! 😛 how I wish I was there

DigiPaint – Jinyoung


hopefully that doesn’t scare you 😛
that was supposed to be Jinyoung from the boy group B1A4 (I actually just knew that that is his name even though I’ve been listening to them the day their album came out haha)
their songs are pretty good and catchy
I sort of am a fan of their songs
youtube for OK – the song title if you’re interested
their english pronunciation is bad lol but I’m not one to talk

I was reaaaaaaaaaaaally itching to do digital painting while I was in my exam period
so I ended up packing my wacom in its box and put it away haha
totally took it out the minute I got home from my last exam

anyway, my exams just ended on the 2nd June
so pretty much I’m free now – not really though…
I have 3 months – 10 weeks to be exact to start and finish up with my project + report before I’m done with my course
hopefully everything is going to be fine

I’ll start picking up my camera again soon – butterflies photos soon if I could myself to go out haha
supposedly, I planned to take some photos today but when I went out in the morning, it was too hot! *melts*
so I ended up in my room for the rest of the day – fan on full blast! *ahhh how blissful*
I was like… 10 minutes doing my project stuff, then I’m back in Photoshop with the painting haha
I’m so sure I’m in love with digital painting!

of course I’m not sure if I have the talent for it but I do know that I love doing it
just for the sake of it, here’s the sneak peak of the saved WIP 😛
I really thought I’d take a few days more to finish it; but ended up getting motivated to finish it today heeee~




It’s not that something I’ve just realise but I’ve been thinking what do I want to do with my life
of course I do think things like, I’d work my arse off for 10 years or so, quit the job and hello world tour~
well, that is if my income is like… so awesomely good that I can quit just like that haha

ok that’s just a dream wishing it will come true heeeeee~

I’m wondering if I didn’t take engineering in the first place, how would I turn out to be like?
someone better? or might be worse than I am now?
would I feel a lot better about myself?

I love engineering, I certainly do
but… well, how should I put this

don’t you ever feel like you’d like to stop with whatever you’re doing right now and restart your life?
live somewhere nobody knows you, totally new environment
try new things, totally unrelated from before
to do things from the beginning again

it’s not that I’m not satisfy with how things are
I’m comfortable with it
it’s just that… it feels too numb with how life been treating me right now
err that does mean I’m not satisfy with a of things haha

am I the only weird one here that wants to start over my life again? 😆

p/s this painting going to take ages to complete since I’m planning to paint the whole body not just the face and I only work on it for a few hours only during the weekend 😛
it’s umm… looking ok so far I suppose?


Hello Malaysia!


well… I’m back for winter break lol
I’ve just arrived a few days ago and I’m still jetlag urghhh~
I’ll head to bed once I submit this post; I don’t feel that good tbh urghhhh~

I was working on this piece while waiting for my flights both at Heathrow and KLIA kekeke~
so here goes!
I might get back to it since it’s not as I expected
I was practising with the eyes and lips 😉
I don’t think I did bad in it; it seems more alive now haha
this was supposed to be CNBlue -Yonghwa but it turned out to be.. who knows who this is lol

CNBlue has pretty nice songs if you want to check the band out
I love their Japanese albums rather than Korean one
they have a lot of English songs as well but… errr I should warn you about their pronunciation ehe~ 😛
their hit song is I’m A Loner
but until now, my fav song is Eclipse from the The Way album

anyway, good night! 😉
I’ll post up photos again once I get myself into it
