My Bitter Tears


While waiting for my clients' responses about commissions, I was doing my small drawing. I needed to do warm-up drawing exercises (nope, it's not like stick figures... for instance, smudge, shades, contour lines, scribbles, circles, etc.) Because I didn't draw / paint for more than three weeks. Before doodling, I tried to imagine my girl character when I listened to my all-the-time favorite song, "My Bitter Tears" by Smote. I recommend this splendid music Smote for all of you. Enjoy listening! (Thanks for sharing, Camy!)


Anyway, I used Staedtler mechanical pencil and kneaded eraser. I love doing spontaneous pencil techniques that makes me feel more motivated. See more detailed photos below.

Hmmm, I'm not sure if I could sell my original drawing or not.... I think I keep this for myself, haha! Anyway, I already added this hi-res image to my Society6 site for selling prints. From now until November 11, get $5 off your purchase on my Society6! Hurry up! Have a wonderful day, guys!

Lovely, I love how loose this is, and how tight in some places. I can feel how it goes along with the music, which is also so dreamy.

You're so talented Mall I don't know where to begin. The expression of your drawing is just right. I love it!

Nice personal piece. The music you provided really adds to the piece. I love when you create something and your like "yea, I feel even more creative now."

Thanks for the wonderful song suggestion, I'm loving their creations. Beautiful piece, even if it was just a warm up I really like how the final composition of your work turned out :)
