Gaia

oil on gesso board(12"x18")
This project is assigned by my mentor, Kinuko Craft. I need to portray the earth goddess, Gaia. I really like working with Kinuko, because I think her suggestion is always very constructive and helps the painting a lot.

P.S. I updated my website, http://phoenixchanillustration.webs.com

Art Deco Poster


In the Workshop Class, we need to do a NYC travel poster in Art Deco Style. I think this is the most difficult project in this semester...many reasons for that. First, I don't know what is art deco style; secondly, after I know what is art deco, I do not like the style; thirdly, it is absolutely different from my work, I don't know how to make it works at all. But I tried to keep a positive attitude, open to new thing and see it as a learning experience. In short, I think I do my best for it. At Last, thanks for Steven, the art director who works for Disney, helped the class for the project and gave us critique during our class.

Yeah!! I got four artworks in the CMYK magazine. Thanks for all my professors:))

want to dance once more time...



sketch and under toned painting
I sketched out this painting in the last semester, but just never got a chance to paint it.
I try to use color scheme that I seldom use, such as the blue, purple, green. Specially, I almost never use any purple in my painting....I don't know why, it just happens naturally.
Besides, I think I am addicted to make my own gesso, it is just so enjoyable.

Rainy Day II

Digital(By Photoshop)
I like this girl's face a lot and I got critic from a famous senior student(Chase Stone) during the class! HAHA^^b

The 6th semester is over, the summer holiday starts. I think I should be happy because I can relax and has some funs, but I feel sad actually. I want to keep working and busy till the end of my life. I think this kind of busy life confirms my existence and gives some kind of meanings to my life. If I am not working, I am nothing at all.
In this semester, I think I do improve but not a lot...I definitely need more hardworking and should challenge myself more, never hold back. Because next year I will be the senior and I have to compare to the professional soon. I don't want to pressure myself too much but just need to keep working and make the process enjoyable, keep it as a part of the daily life, and I think that's enough.
Besides, I should start show my works to some potential clients. But my low self esteem is just a problem...

Handcuffed

oil on canvas(16"x20")
----------------------------------------------------
some details



My recent personal work that I did during the winter break. This is the first time I paint oil on canvas surface and I think it is a better working surface than the gesso board. Besides, I really like the oval shape canvas and it gives me more passionate to finish it.
Overall, this painting depicts a clock and there is a girl who is handcuffed, trapped inside the clock. The skeleton/gear of the clock contains some star symbols of the solar system, such as the sun, moon, earth, venus, pluto...Besides, may be you can't really notice from the photo, there is a wallpaper as the background, I spend a lot of time on painting that wallpaper.
