Happy BELATED Chinese New Year!! feat. Kaze.Co (my original charas) from [link] and [link]

I didn't want to ruin my goal of doing a piece every year T_T;; Even tho it's already 4 days or so past Chinese New Year.

Totally different from the last two in terms of "genki"ness and refinement. Probably because it's been quite a stressing and tiring year for me. So I must take plenty of rest!! And you too! (if you're sleep deprived like me...or have class early in the morning @A@)

"Sun Nin Fai Lok" (Happy New Year) is painted on the sleeping boar XD;; The photos (search "wild boar" on gettyimages.com) I referenced the baby boars were soooo utterly adorable!! :heart: :heart: Especially the one laying down or napping....gahh...so cute.

The caligraphy "pig" were done by my dad ;3 He was rusty on it and it end up doing a lot of practice, so I included them as well, to show KEEP ON PRACTICING!!! Chinese Caligraphy is definitely an art skill ;___; I suck at it.

Tools: Mechanical Pencil, India Ink, Painter 8.0, Plenty of Photoshop effects

Texture from Mayang [link]

Gahhh, late in commenting as always. XD That boar is AWESOME. Really, I have so much trouble drawing animals. XD I love the overall sketchy style you used, and tone of color. *g* Beautiful job Nancy! I think writing calligraphy is fun, especially if you have those cool inking pens made for it. :'D

Hmm...Should i keep my work like nonclean lineart D: For some reason I'm getting nice comments about the sketchiness. XD;; I wonder if my clean up style is too clean...

We have those chinese caligraphy brushes :3

Do both! I happen to love your clean lines also. XD I think everyone's mentioning it because it's a bit different from your normal style. Both look equally pretty imo. *0*

Yes! I love using those. XD

Your picture looks terrific, and your dad's calligraphy is solid gold compared to mine. I ended up tracing the characters I used. I was just sucking too much. :raincloud:

calligraphy IS hard but what you have in your picture looks awesome D: omg.. seriously... I dunno how my friend does it >.< she won some national championship for calligraphy.

ANYWAYS, I LOVE the feeling that I'm getting from this picture. the mood is so relaxed and watercolor-like xD and the baby boars are sooo cute =D

"Sun Nin Fai Lok" (Happy New Year) <~~~ are you cantonese? =D =D?

Hehe I had my dad sit down (after coming home from work) and do a bunch of the "pig" character until he got it right. *I'm very picky about the strokes* The one I had here are my favorite.

Yeppo. I speak cantonese XD;; *not very well tho T_T;;;* ~!
