I'm not going to post a comic entry today. Sorry. I'm experiencing terrible turbulence in my artistic flow. Plus, I haven't completed my commission so it's kinda unfair for me to do anything else than that. Which is easier said than done. Rupanya susah buat komik ni. Heih..
Anyway, this is not the time to just surrender to my laziness. I manage to clean up my work place and I hope that it would boost up my energy to do something productive with the commission today. Without further ado, I would like to introduce you to my cave. My friend said that it is equivalent to a home studio but I can't agree since I don't really have that many art supply to be grouped as a studio.
(Sorry about the overexposure. I tweak with the camera setting and forgot to change it back)
On a good day, my desk wouldn't be piled up with foods and undergarment. This is a decent photo of my desk. I have a 3 in 1 printer which I love so much. Please do not die on me any time soon. That's my folding hair which frequently causes embarrassing incidents of me being stuck in between. The desk I got from IKEA. It's affordable and I love it so much..
Now a closer look at my desk. The panel is stuck to the wall. The previous tenant was kind enough to leave it behind when they move out. Perfect for me to keep my pen away from the desk. I spot Aujinz just next to my Faber Castell pencil colour. On the far end is my paper haul. I have Deleter manga paper, copic manga paper, bleed proof marker pad, sketch pad and watercolour pad. My favourite would be the bleed proof marker pad since I colour my tradart a lot. That green tray is my draft tray. For comics I usually do a draft sketch on printing paper and just put it in the tray. I'll revisit the sketch when I have time to finish it.
A better view on my haul. I keep my drafting pencils in a wooden box because I like to separate my pen and pencil. I also have four erasers. The block erasers I use for general sketching. The blue colour stuck to it is from my blue lead. I have two mechanical erasers which I use for realism pencil drawing (I seriously dunno the correct name). That kneadable eraser at the end (might be a bit hard to see) is also use for pencil artwork. The two bottles at the end are the whiteout and my favourite ink from Deleter. The nibs for my dip pen are in the cute truck aka my piggy bank. Multiliners and drawing pens are all in the barrel for easy access.
I keep a photo of my parents close to my work desk. You know.. For that daily boost of love and motivation. Bahahah. Next to it is big bottle of minyak cap kapak for when the love from the photo cannot help with the splitting headache from staring at the computer for too long. Most of my drawing pen/multiliners are from Copic since they don't get smudged when layered with copic marker.
Pencil and markers. And mirror because I'm a narcissist and I have to look at my face 24/7. Joke. It's for expression reference.
Some books because I need help from sensei out there. I'm not born with all the knowledge of comic making. That yellow book is not a reference book. It's just for my light reading. It's a funny illustrated book and had nothing to do with being a parent. Seriously. It's not like I'm reading it to prepare myself as a parent. Hahaha. you guise would understand.. right?
Anyway.. That's where I spend my night drawing. I would love to see your work desk. Especially Aujinz. Aku tau ko pun jenis hoard barang-barang melukis.. HAHAHA. Cepat, post entry meja melukis ko.
Sampai situ saje entry kali ni. Sorry for the english. Don't mind my writing, I've lost touch with the author in me.
Right! Stop it. It's getting silly. Now get on with it. Get on with it!
