Yui, a 22 year old singer-songwriter, actress from Fukuoka, Japan. She has 3 albums, 1 compilation album, and 14 singles released to date. This is drawn from her compilation album cover called "My Short Stories"

This is just another attempt of a celebrity sketch, so Yui fans please don't get angry if you think it doesn't look at all like her, because I know it doesn't :) But I am showing the stages again, showing how it was done, I hope you like that.

Thanks again for all the comments left on my previous drawing. I really do appreciate every word there, and that gives me a lot of motivation to work on the next piece everytime. Happy drawing everyone! ^^

Yeah, you might find the title weird, but the DDD stands for Dr. Dany's Daughter ^^ Dr. Dany is my boss, or was... but he's a great guy and by far the best boss I've ever had. He's got a couple of beautiful kids, and he's got pictures of them all over his office, so I thought I'd want to draw the youngest one because I like kids too. She might not look the same as she looked in the picture, still I hope he likes it.

I am doing another step by step, so that people could see how I worked my way through, and perhaps give me some pointers too.

Thank you all again and again for all your comments on my previous posts. You all are great! :)

Ruling the dance floor (by Alex)

I just thought I'd like to capture a little glimpse of MJ's moves on my sketch book, and how people would remember him. He has a lot of signature moves of course, and this is one of it :)

Thanks for all your comments on my previous post, I appreciate them so much. I am sorry to say that I won't be posting the wedding invitation card design yet, until it is printed, because I'd want to make a comparison ^^ Thanks for your patience though, and for having so much interest in that as well. Happy sketching everyone!

for Michael Jackson (by Alex)

I'd wanted to do this since last week, but I was of course busy with my own wedding invitation card project. But that's been completed, so I'm back into sketches and drawings.

I must say, I grew up with MJ's musics. I remember when I was 6, I was obsessed with the Beat It video, and was always trying to copy his moonwalk. Thriller scared the skin off me during that time, and then Smooth Criminal has and will probably always be my favorite video from MJ.

Despite all the ups and downs in his life, he's genuinely a great performer and without a doubt one of the best entertainer of all time. Wherever you are now MJ, you'll always be remembered as the one who made Moonwalk known to the world. Rest in peace MJ.

Rejected Wedding Invitation Card Ideas #1.5 (by Alex)

(click to enlarge)

This is pretty much what I did, and I ended up having what's on the right of the page as part of the card design at the back. I am glad I didn't have to go through so many rounds of it because I still had to work on the layout and all the stuff which I spent most of my time doing and fiddling with.
I'd say the card design is completed, but I won't post it up yet, not at least until it's actually printed out, and then we could perhaps compare the printed version with the one on computer. In the meantime I'll try to get back to the usual sketches and drawings.

Thank you all so much for your comments, ideas, and wishes earlier, I appreciate them so much, and I am glad I made some of you happy because of the cuteness of it. ^^
