Been bingeing on BL series…

Hello, peeps. It’s been a while since my last post but I haven’t been slacking.

I’ve been gorging on Japanese, Korean and Taiwanese BL series and discovered a couple of gems. Here’s my recommendations in no specific order :

  • We Best Love: No. 1 For You (Taiwanese) – 6 episodes
  • We Best Love: Fighting Mr. 2nd (Taiwanese) – 6 episodes
  • My Beautiful Man (Japanese) – 6 episodes.
  • Cherry Magic (Japanese) – 12 episodes.
  • Light On Me (Korean) – 16 episodes.
  • My Love Mix-Up (Japanese) – 10 episodes.

My current favourite CP (couple) ship is SamYU (Sam Lin & YU) who play the main roles in the We Best Love series. I’ve been hooked on YouTube videos of their interactions and grinning like a fool every time I see them together.

Below is a digital illustration of them that I’ve done using Procreate:-

Another colouring completed!

Hello everyone! I hope you’re well.

Me? I took on the task of painting certain parts of my house purely on a whim. Now, I have aches and pains in muscles I never took notice of 😅. I’ve also been making preparations to usher in the Chinese New Year (aka the Lunar New Year) next week, so I’ll be pretty busy in the meantime.

Luckily, I’ve still been able to squeeze in this colouring of Wang Yibo as Lan Zhan. Truth be told, I began my BL journey by watching The Untamed series and it opened up this whole other world that I’ve been thoroughly immersed in until now.

Don’t forget to check out and follow my Instagram and Pinterest pages!

New colouring!

I’ve been hooked onto a new Japanese BL drama called ”My Beautiful Man”. Go check it out if and when you can. Warning: there are some bullying scenes.

It’s only six episodes and twenty-something minutes each. This drama is so aptly named because of actor Yusei Yagi who plays Kuyoi So. He is stunning and gorgeous.

Here’s my colouring of him (I don’t think it does him justice though 😅)

New Year, new colouring!

Good day, lovely people! Best wishes for the New Year!

Thank you once again to my wonderful readers for your unwavering support. I truly appreciate all your lovely comments and messages.

I’ve been wanting to colour Gong Jun as Wen Ke Xing for sometime but had trouble deciding on which look to go for. Finally, I settled on this outfit because it’s one of his classic looks from the Word of Honour series and I absolutely love the gorgeous blue of this costume.

This piece was quite straightforward and only took over 7 hours. Check out my time lapse video to see the colouring process. I also post on Instagram so go ahead and visit/ follow me there.

Last digital colouring for 2021 😊💜

There aren’t many photos of Zhai Xiao Wen as Xie Lian in his Taizi Dianxia robes from the upcoming live-action series: Eternal Faith. It’s based on MXTX’s popular novel Heaven Official’s Blessing (Tian Guan Ci Fu). FYI, this is truly one of my favourite BL xianxia novels.

When I saw the first on-set photos of him in this outfit, I knew I just had to colour it. The costume is truly detailed and amazing! Go ahead and Google them or check them out on my Pinterest page here.

This piece took me over 25 hours but I enjoyed it all the way. I’ve included some closeups so you can appreciate some of the details I’ve included. As always, my time-lapse video is also here if you’re interested in seeing how my colouring process unfolds.

So this is it for 2021. See you all next year! *waves*

Completed another colouring…

It’s been so hard looking for a decent photo of Arthur Chen as Mo Ran in the upcoming series Immortality based on the popular novel The Dumb Husky and His White Cat Shizun. I positively love this novel. If you haven’t read it, be prepared for a rollercoaster ride.

I had a really hard time colouring the facial features and at the end, I couldn’t bear to work on it anymore. Anyway, I hope you all like it.

Happy Birthday to me and double celebration ’cos I’ve completed a new colouring!

Hello, lovely people! As you can see, I’ve been busy. I’m still looking for a new novel to translate and either pickings are slim or I’m too picky (tbh, it’s the latter……heehee…). As always, I welcome any suggestions or recommendations on this aspect.

Until then, I’ll continue to churn out colourings. This one took me 14.5 hours. Hope you all like this one. Click on the time-lapse video to see how I did it :-

I’ve finally completed a new colouring!

It’s been weeks since I’ve posted anything.

Been in sort of a rut for a while, then was catching up on some BL reads, lots of manhwa, mangas and finally had the urge to finish my colouring of TGCF’s live action Hua Cheng which I’d started a couple of months back but lost interest halfway.

I used Procreate app to colour and you can check out my time-lapse video to see the process.

All in all, this took a total of 12 hours to complete.

Luo Yu’s & Qin Jianyue’s Fan Fiction!

Initially, I’d planned releasing this sometime later this week because I was stuck trying to finish it.

Who knew inspiration would strike and I managed to complete it today!

Thank you for those of you who’ve enjoyed Gu Ruohai’s & Su Huaizhu’s story.

Another fanfic, anyone?

Hello, lovely people. Been two weeks since I last posted.

I’m actually working on another fan fiction based on this novel. This one’s a bit trickier than the first one. But I hope to have it out by next week earliest, so fingers crossed 🤞!

If you haven’t read my first fanfic, click here to read Gu Ruohai’s & Su Huaizhu’s Story.

Until then, I hope everyone’s doing well. 💜
