Different (Chanyeol)

Different (Chanyeol)

I know, I know, I said I won’t draw anything until I’m finished with the graduation exam. But I finished the final exam (the one that finishes the last semester/year, and such as my studies, while the graduation is slightly different, since that’s my own project), so I decided to celebrate that with letting a little drawing for myself.

Also the events from the close-past, regarding Chanyeol. The perfect example how to make an elephant out of a fly. Gosh.
Whatever was that, since our Chanyeol is sensitive, especially about people liking and supporting him, I hoped he wouldn’t take it serious not even for a second, not even giving it a second thought.
But this made me draw his double face, the charismatic cutely-silly young guy whose actions and verbal behavior reminds me to my younger brothers so really much, I know them so well, they are just silly, but never would ever intentionally hurt anyone’s feelings. They love in their own way. They are also totally positive about the way they love being absolutely right. And they get just as hurt when faced hate or negativity as any of us. That is the other face. That is why it’s “Different”.

Also the song I found accidentally, the first time I heard it was when I was already drawing the portrait, but jeez, just how really much it suits the topic:
We and him are different people, we climb into different beds at night, we have different feelings, and his point of view are probably different than yours or mine, and thats natural, so giving our own meaning to his actions is also not the meaning he was intending to have. And he might get hurt. He might be screaming while you are going to bed without any concern.
He just really tries desperately to make us love him.
And I admit, there was a time in the past when I thought it is too much, he was putting up such an acting to earn admiration, he always took (still takes) a second before acting and decides which action will put him to the best position. And I thought he just wanted that to get more popular, he just enjoyed the fame he was getting. That’s what I thought. And I didn’t like it.
But since then I realized that he isn’t putting this up, he really is longing for love. For real love from his members, from fans, from anyone. He longs to be loved, to be cared, taken care of. He cares about his fellow members, he loves them, he loves us, not just fans, really, he loves our love towards him, and he loves us, he would do anything to not disappoint and be unloved. And that’s honest from his side. He just so really much reminds me to my brothers.
So whatever sick joke that was going on, or that elephant whether if it was only a fly, I got so protective about it. Like when I was a kid and protecting my brothers when they were attacked by a little older ugly aggressive guy when we were playing on the playground, I had beaten the hell out of that kid, his mother was running after me through couple of blocks to catch and scold me for giving blue and purple marks to his useless kid.

I dare you to.
: D

So, long story short, just love him. He is one of those few people on this world, who actually cares about your feelings. Don’t make him loose that care and close up.

This time I made a video about drawing it.

The peach flowers took an eternity to draw. There is no special reason behind the peaches, I thought it’s less cheesy than cherry flowers. Peach flowers also symbolize long life.
About two weeks ago I bought a peach tree, a – yet – small one. Probably that’s where it came from. I bought that tree to give along with a present instead of a bouquet. Bouquets are way too mainstream, we thought why don’t we give a tree instead. : D

It’s all fun and games to draw with colored pencil, but while finishing this one I started to miss the simplicity of monochrome, normal pencils. Next time I probably will draw a monochrome portrait. But not soon, I’m banning myself from drawing for my personal joy until I finish my graduation project. I have my diploma exam in a little more than a month, and I haven’t even started my project yet. I’m getting closer to a whole new level of panic.

Not to mention the end-year exam next week. But compared to my diploma exams I’m all ‘meh” about this exam. I’m planning to go to Switzerland in the end of the week, arriving back just hours before my exam, I’m probably going to go straight to my exam from Switzerland.
It reminds me to my high school final examination. I went with my suitcase to my high level oral english exam, I received a call 2 hours before my exam that I have a ticket for 2 hours after my exam to Hong Kong, out of the blue. It was fun.

The last time I drew a portrait with coloured pencils were 5 years ago. It turned out disastrous. It kind of scared me off. So as you can see I rarely take out my coloured pencils, and since then never for a portrait.
That was part of the reason why I didn’t even record a video, I wasn’t entirely sure of how it will turn out. (The other part of the reason is that I didn’t want to colour my nails for a video.)

I was calmly waiting for the Kyungsoo teaser to come out (tell me who was responsible for the order), I knew I will get inspired by either the video or the photos. Though I loved the most the car parts, especially when he steps out of it in front of that cool station, minimal composition, pastels+black&white, etc. 5*. 5* for everything, really, I’m in love with the style of the teasers, the entire feel.
This image was actually inspired by the moment he steps out the door, we see his back, and there are giant bird of paradise leaves in front of him, pink pastel roof, sand coloured background. That is where this drawing came from.

Since I love the pastel feel (lately too, but in the videos as well) I wanted to keep the colours. Paints would have been too harsh, pastels are way too bothersome, I didn’t feel like digital drawing I wanted to create it in the reality. Coloured pencils left. And even I am surprised by how it turned out. I love the face. The lips, the eyes. In colour and on paper.
I will definitely keep this thing going.

I used my watercolour pencil set to draw this, and an A3 paper.
Rediscovered how to use coloured pencils too, it was not always easy when you are used to monochrome portraits. Like I have a technique with hair, thanks to it I draw it quite fast while looking realistic, but in coloured pencils it doesn’t work that way, I didn’t know how to “cheat”, and when I realised I have to draw basically every hair and shade it I was like are you kidding me.

I also remembered what my teacher said back when the last time I used coloured pencils, it was in Taiwan, and he was counted as a traditional person, with fine style in art. And looking at my disastrous coloured pencil drawing he only told me that “You still try to shade in the classic way, from light to dark. That’s not how you are supposed to do it.”
It just turned up in my head while drawing this. I still don’t get it, how else am I supposed to shade. I guess I will level-up when I finally understand what he meant.

My semester has ended, now exam time has arrived in hands with major graduation-panic.
This was one crazy semester, I don’t think I have ever worked this much for school in the past 6 years. That was why I didn’t draw fanarts, though I wanted to, but I was caved up in my room for 7/24 working. Now I just have to live through the graduation project.

I can’t wait to get back to drawing and videos.

H. C. Andersen: The Fir Tree

Andersen: The Fir Tree

Part of my Andersen school project.
As part of the project we had to make our present for Andersen, to salute in front of his work and his world and himself. My approach was a typography with illustration short series.
I chose my three favourite tales. The first one is The Fir Tree.
The story is about the life of a pine tree, how from the very first moment of his life he wanted to be more and better, he put all his strength into growing and to grow beautiful and graceful. That was all he could think about. As a result he did manage to grow fast and became outstanding, he did succeed and received the fame he was yearning for. Only that in the end he realised he was too busy dreaming and working towards a better life to appreciate what he had during his life.
It’s a beautiful story.
Its’ last sentence is also my favourite quote from Andersen: “for all stories must come to an end at last.”

Unusual from me that I used the Hungarian title instead of the English translation. Since I knew the story in Hungarian I guess it felt closer to me to use the Hungarian title.

I really can’t wait spring, and I really wanted to draw something fresh and sunny and springy.
Used as reference (and inspiration) the tulips I got for my birthday.
They died already : (

I loved the idea of drawing a springy nature picture into his jacket, while the other Baek is wearing glasses reflecting a city and airport and busy people.
Choosing two images with glasses isn’t the best idea if you want to draw him looking and resembling himself. But that wasn’t my point.

PS.
I’m having some major problems with my January Art project. I finished it, and didn’t like how it turned out. Then I showed some people asking for opinion. And we just realised what is the problem with the video. And it turns out I have to rerecord half of it. And you know what I hate the most in the world.. – second most .. .. – thrid, whatever. Redoing things. I rather do something new, never redo. I will remake this one though, but not now. Sighs.
