LeeYunna's Profile Picture
Lee Yunna
I have a wide range of taste in art, music, films and books. I'm here mainly to share my interest in art, and also to support others.

Let's be friends ;)
I'm sort of starting a personal project regarding native folklore in Sabah. This is a project I've been planning to do forever, but just didn't have the time to do it due to work and study. Now my study is coming to an end, I'm taking the chance to start this, finally.

Here are some photos of my drawing process. Sorry about the photo quality; they were taken with my poor Xiaomi...

 There're several sketches before this, but I settled down with this one. Had to refer to a lot of Borneo rainforest plants for the background.

I hoarded- I mean- booought a lot of Micron pens due to doing the Inktober challenge in 2016. I loved all of these pens though, and actually used all of them, believe me or not.

I bought a light sketchpad! It was on discount, so why not... Saves me a lot of time from erasing pencil lines after inking.

I actually got this on December 2016, but the post office returned it to the sender because they said I was a week late to claim it. I was sure I was only four or five days late, but oh well... Lazada resent it to me using my other street address and now I'm putting it into good use.

After I finally got the base line down, I proceeded to ink the background.

And couldn't stop myself afterwards.

I struggled with the mountain because I had little idea how the light would fell on the rocky surfaces. So I took a picture of Mount Kinabalu on Google and turn it into black and white and started inking. I still need to improve my strokes a lot, but I'm quite satisfied with the end result.

Here are some more details of the entire black and white illustration.

Another thing I noticed here is that Micron pen ink does not really blend well. You can see the marker stroke on the guy's clothing. But I can fix it up on Photoshop, and later color on the black with Copic later on. This whole illustration took me an entire day! Well, it didn't help I was binge-watching on Netflix while doing this. I'll have to stop multi-tasking in the future :D

I'll upload the illustration soon! And thank you for reading this. Anyone has any personal project as well?


I accidentally deleted a correspondence request. I'm so sorry! CURSE YOU!
