More portrait commissions

Assalamualaikum and hai!

Alhamdulillah atas segala nikmat yang dikurniakan oleh-Nya. Masih sihat, masih bernafas, masih cukup makan dan minum, segala organ masih berfungsi dengan baik... Allahu... terlalu banyak nikmat yang perlu kita syukuri. Mulakan hari dengan senyuman, jangan terlalu banyak merungut okay? (Nasihat diri sendiri).

For the past two months, I've been struggling with studies and managing portrait commissions. Alhamdulillah.

Disember 2017, ada orang minta lukis potret couple DAN SEKALI DENGAN BACKGROUND. Nervous jugak sebab tak pernah lukis with background before this, hohoho but I bravely took the risk. Masa ni agak busy, dah lah nak dekat minitest dan aku pun terlupa masa tu aku nak minitest. Dah lukis dalam 30% baru teringat minggu depan ada minitest and I DIDN'T MANAGE TO COVER ALL TOPICS! I failed my minitest masa tu (for the first time ever in medschool). LOL, silly me. Nasib baik 10% je carrymark.

Baru 30%

Aku pun tinggalkan itu kerja yang belum siap dan start study... Lepas minitest habis pun tak sempat sambung, tiba-tiba ada lagi seorang order potret couple jugak and it was urgent. I only had two days untuk siapkan itu potret. Tak tidur uollsssss! Sebabnya kelas iolls memang 8AM sampailah ke petang so tinggal malam jelah nak siapkan. Plus dia suruh lukis with background and body, exactly macam dalam gambar dia bagi. Again, I took the risk walaupun sebenarnya I tahu agak mencabar sebab bila lukis with body, muka jadi kecik, so susah nak dapatkan the exact detailed proportion(??)

Unfortunately I tak tahulah tangan menggeletar ke apa but the guy's face tak sama langsung I lukis tau. Sangat menyedihkan. Customer suruh ubah sikit so I had to redo the guy's face and it took me like 3 hours???

Messy.

This piece requires a lot of shading. Tangan kebas sampai pergi kelas pun tak larat nak salin notes.

It was just a few days before my classmate's wedding, so I had to rush to Ipoh cepat. I promised to hand in the portrait on Friday, 6PM. Masalahnya hari Jumaat tu ada hal dekat luar, pukul 3++ baru balik hostel and masa tu try banyak kali nak redo the guy's face tu. Siap tepat-tepat sebelum pukul 6PM tau! I could really feel that Allah helped me at that time. I was so exhausted ahahaha and I slept a lot on my way to Ipoh the next day!

Lepas balik dari Ipoh, kena siapkan my friend punya order pulak. Itu pun agak urgent dan complicated. Sampai ke sudah tak sempat sambung couple portrait yang terbengkalai 30% tu. HAHA. Ni pun took risk jugak sebab kawan request colour-kan background sesuka hati dan letak wording. Iolls tak pernah berlatih wording sangat hoho but I hope I did okay.

Corak dekat tengkolok tu sangat complicated and the mom's face tak jadi sangat actually. Huhu but I'm glad my friend liked this piece.

Dah siapkan order kawan, sambung balik potret couple tu. I had to touch up the girl's face so many times; I almost gave up but alhamdulillah everything went well.

Siap!

A few days after that I received a very heartwarming message:

This made me smile

It was framed and wrapped very nicely too! Beautiful!

I enjoyed a few days of watching kdramas before moving on to an A5 sized portrait painting of my friend! Ordered by a classmate.


After final exam, I went back home and siapkan lagi dua potret.

 
So sweetttt!

I really enjoyed completing this piece.



I finally made use of the time-lapse thingy on my iPad. Hence, the videos.

Extra:

Painted this for my friend's birthday.

This was unplanned. Tetibe jumpa canvas kecik with stand macam ni dekat Daiso, so bagi hadiah ke orang huhu.

Till then, bye!

First time shopping di Althea

Assalamualaikum dan hai~

Long time no see! Lama dah sebenarnya shopping dekat Althea ni tapi baru nak update. I bought an Althea box which consists of many pore care products + eye cream and dapat free postage. Almost RM140 jugak total. Tapi sekarang ni Althea box semua dah sold out. You can still check their website out untuk window shopping. Mana tau ada yang berkenan ke kan.


Kotak dia warna pink pulak tu! Suka suka!


Tempted nak beli sebab jimat banyak kalau beli Althea box ni. Banyak product yang iolls teringin, ada dalam box ni. Contohnya Laneige Cushion, Klairs supple preparation toner and Jeju Volcanic pore clay mask tu. And banyak jugak free mask sheets and samples! Yeay I like!

Laneige Powder Fit Cushion SPF 50+ No. 23 Sand.

Lama sangat dah teringin Cushion ni T^T Kalau beli asing harga RM90++ gitu kalau tak silap. Tapi jimat berganda beli Althea box ni sebab macam-macam ada. Cushion ni sangat convenient hokay. Kalau pakai BB cream nak kena picit sikit atas belakang tapak tangan lagi, then kena guna beauty blender lagi (selalu guna tangan tapi menyampah sebab melekit, malas nak basuh). Dengan adanya bendalah ni, makin rajin "mekap" ahha.

 

Shade no. 23 sand ni je yang ada dalam Althea box tu, tak boleh pilih. Iolls main beli je tanpa menghiraukan segala risiko. Nasib baik shade dia kena dengan muka iolls (I have fair skin tone). As for the coverage, bolehlah. Segala blemishes dapat ditutup dengan baik, tak nampak merah-merah dah. Tapi acne scars tu kena guna concealer jugak.

Belum try lagi. I'm still using my Cosrx AHA/BHA toner; still loving it takut nak curang.

Untuk membersihkan pores. I suka jugak sebab memang rasa bersih pun pores.

Tak pernah try. I gave it away to my friend as her wedding gift. 
Pengantin baru kena cantiks gitu kan.

Tak pernah try jugak. I want to sell it tapi tak ada orang nak beli ahha.

Ini pun nak jual jugak tapi tak ada orang nak beli lagi. Not a fan of this thing.

Yeay ada sheet masks!!!! Sayang nak guna hehehe.

Inilah dia free samples! 

Baru try Madagascar Centella Asiatica Cream tu je. Nama melayunya krim pegaga ahahaha. Good as soothing agent. Pegaga kan macam anti-inflammatory (??) gituh. Walaupun sample kecik je tapi banyak kali boleh guna sebab banyak actually content dia tu.

Added this to cart sebab nak free postage. RM20 je. Mata banyak wrinkles T^T Setakat ni guna tak nampak perubahan lagi (hari-hari tidur lambat).

Sekian sahaja entri kali ini. Papai!
