My First PR Rank...Yay!

Hi readers and fans!

When I first started this blog, I never thought that it would actually reached any google PR ranking...Coz' in my mind, a PR is quite hard to get...even if it's only a 1...:-D

But today when I opened my blog, I realized that my PR rank has changed from 0 to 1...this maybe a small step for some of you guys out there, but for me, it surely did make me smile a lot...:-)..And now, I am enthusiastic on bringing my blog to achieve a higher PR...

And of course, this wouldn't be happening if it weren't for you guys out there...! I would like to thank my readers, my fans and all of you who have given support to this blog...and especially those who have taken some time to post some comments in here...Keep them coming you guys!...and maybe I will draw more portraits for your eyes only ...

Thank you for your support!


P/s: I would love to know which celebrity face that you would like to see drawn in pencil...?

Today's Special: Edward Cullen from Twilight

Hi there readers,

It's been a while since I've posted any new portrait on my blog. Well, this one is especially for you who have given me a lot of support, confidence and advice about my drawings all of this time. So today, I give you ....Robert Pattinson a.k.a. Edward Cullen from Twilight...(with a little twist...:-))...Enjoy!

This is the first sketch...

And this is after adding shadows to the face...

Okay, all done ...well, except for the background...:-)

And this is the finished portrait of Edward Cullen...

I darken the portrait a bit by using some graphic software...

This is a close-up on Edward's face...

Okay, here's the twist...I like this portrait so very much that I tend to manipulate it a bit by using a graphic software. See the results below...and I would love your opinion about it...


Like this picture? It's done using the 'emboss' function..I think it looks kinda cool..:-)

Okay, now this is when we want to see 'more' of Edward...:-)...we multiply 'im...:-D

This is a 'blue' version of Edward...:-D

This is done by filtering a spotlight to Edward's vampiric looks..

This is what it would look like if I put Edward in a frame!

Okay, that's a wrap, folks!

p/s: If you want any of the image above imprinted on your Tshirt, mousepad, keychain, mug, poster or etc...please don't hesitate to email me about

Help me by Buying my Pencil Portraits...

Hi readers,

Initially, I made this blog as a personal gallery for my own viewing pleasure and to share it with all of you out there. This is something you should know about me, I'm just a simple housewife who's trying and hoping to make a living by venturing into the Internet business. That way, I can help a lot of people around me, financially speaking.

Then, a couple of weeks ago, I realized that my husband have had some financial problems. He didn't tell me, but I managed to figure it out. Oh, it's not a life-death situation:-) It's just something that would make our lives a little bit easier, considering the global financial crisis that we're all facing right now.

I don't like to see my husband depressed and I really..really want to help him out. You see, I was thinking that if I only I can raise at least $1000 by the next two months, then everything would be fine. We can pay off all our debts and life would be much happier and merrier..if only...

Before this, I tried almost everything that could make me earned money via Internet, but at the end of the day, I only managed to gain a few dollars a month:-)Talking about bad luck...!
Then, when I was drawing my portrait (some sort of a way to release my tension that is building), I suddenly thought about selling the portrait.

I know that there are a lot, and I mean a lot of artists out there who can draw more beautiful and exquisite hand-drawn portrait that I can (I am newbie, after all). But, this is worth a try. If I can sell at least 30-35 celebrity portrait in... like the next two months, maybe I can achieved $1000. I know that right now, I have only 4 celebrity portraits that I can sell, that is - Jensen Ackles, Enrique Inglesias, Gone with the Wind and Kate/Sawyer. So, I need to draw a lot more of celebrity portrait!

But before going off into a wild goose chase, I really would like your honest opinion or your comment on this. I mean, can I do this, will this actually work or simply just one of those hard to achieve dreams...?

Help! I need lots of opinions and views right now, so that I can finally make up my mind...

A Romantic Scene from Gone With The Wind...


My next portrait is a romantic scene which I'd selected from the epic love movie/novel of all times entitled, "Gone With The Wind", starring Clark Gable as the dashing Rhett Butler and Vivien Leigh as the pampered and beautiful Scarlett O' Hara.

Gone With The Wind - an 'Epic'

...with frame!

Jensen Ackles Pencil Portrait


After doing Enrique, I decided to picked Jensen Ackles aka 'Dean' as my second 'model':-) I really like this actor from 'Supernatural' and I also likes his face:-) For me, this guy has a very distinctive features written all over his face and it was an honor to be able to draw him...!

in the process...

Jensen Ackles...

p/s - A comment would be nice...:-)

The present ..Enrique Inglesias...

Hi all!

In my first post, I talked about reminiscing my childhood memories of drawing portraits...Well after finishing high school, I abruptly stopped drawing portrait, as there was lots of other important things to do...such as getting a degree, find a job, get married and so on...:-)

Then after about 15 years later, my hands suddenly feels itchy to get back into drawing again. I guessed it was my passion, and after all these years, the passion was still deep inside me, although it had been a long time since I picked up a pencil and draw..

I didn't know whether the talent is still in me, but nevertheless, I had to try...So, for my first celebrity portrait after years of neglect is ...Enrique Inglesias!

Well, what do you think of this portrait?
I know...I know.. I still need to polish up my skills:-)..there's still many elements missing in this portrait and I wish I will do better for the next one...

p/s - a little comment would be nice...:-D

My pencil portraits...

Hi all...

First time I started drawing portraits was when I was in high school (about 15 years ago...!). One day, an art teacher taught us all about how to draw portraits of people. It was just a brief explanation, but since then I got very drawn into portraits. I started to draw celebrity portraits and it became my pastime hobby. When you draw, it's as if you can see that they grew alive right in front of your eyes. And when you finished a portrait that looked similar to the real person, you will feel a sense of satisfaction like no other...

Below is several celebrity portraits which I had drawn when I was about 13-15 years old. I was only able to find these few portraits after rummaging through my old stuffs. The portraits looked old and a little bit blurry but it's still held many nostalgic memories for me in my childhood days...I want to share those memories with you too...

Tom Cruise...again...:-)
