Final Year Project

Before I start this project, I made a public statement. This is how I’m being determined about things that I wanna do.

Its final project, and im going back to basic. Fully hand drawn and physical model from A all the way to Z, no 3D software no nothing. 
If I fail, so be it. Whats life without any risk XD”

When I said “if I fail so be it,” I was prepared to fail. I don’t care if it’s gonna work or not, what I care is I need to put enough effort to make it works. If it don’t, so be it. I’m gonna do it again. Or not? Who knows. Haha

But, I did it. Pass the course, and made it into the exhibition. To be honest, at some point, this project is not about me finishing my master anymore. It is about me proving to myself how far my hand drawing can take me. Well, pretty far, just not as far as I expected.

Anyway, started with a few model. The idea is about hand gesture. I guess it was my final project, so I thought I should settle with something that I like. Can’t think about anything else, I settle with the form of hand. Honestly at this point, I was just having fun. :D

And after that, I straight away went to hand drawing. This is where I made my mistake. I made a model, then move to hand drawn. You see, in creating or designing a space, model and drawing is inseparable. Both work hand in hand, you always need to go back and forth between these two methods to come up with a good design. What I did was ; work with model, then move to hand drawn without revisit the model. Ever. Huge mistake. But… that’s that. Lesson learned.

Other problem was that I was designing 3 different building separately. So basically I had 3 different forms to resolve at the same time. It was way beyond my capacity within the amount of time that we’ve given.

So yup, I need to resolve the building as fast as I can because I need a lot of time to do the final drawings. The whole project ended up pretty humble with a lot of incompletion. Only one of the buildings was fully resolve, the other two buildings including the landscape/complex that connecting all the building as well as the site are at the lowest quality.

So, I passed the course, the lecturer didn’t failed me, but I failed myself. Honestly, deep inside, I wish I can redo this course. :P

Inspired by a verse from the Quran
"...your wives are garment to you, and you are garment to them" (2:187)

I actually did this for a competition. Didn’t even make it to the finalist. Haha. NO! The guy are not some Navi people from avatar. It was supposed to be black or gray, or black and white. But it didn’t look good that way. So I decide to use blue instead.

You know, sometimes I wonder why a lot of artists always do stuff that hard for the people to interpret. And even if they did, it’s quite hard to get it right because at the end of the day, who the fuck know what the artist was thinking. And I always wonder why the artist never put any effort to reveal it. Since I start this blog, I realize why.

Most of the time, we do art based on emotion, based on what we feel, sometimes about things that we wanna scream about, yet we just couldn’t. Sometimes revealing the meaning of one artwork is like revealing the artist himself and sometimes it gets too personal. A portfolio is like a diary, though it’s not always the case. Yup, I found really hard for me to talk about every single thing. Too public. :P

Yes this was inspired by the verse mention above, and it is about that. But there’s more meaning to it. Remember people, any complicated and intense artwork hardly goes without meanings. 

hari tu kater nak tulis pasal vocab, sampai la tak buat. -___-"


This is my very first facebook art, I guess. I’m not sure what people call it. But I did this specifically for my time line on facebook. Tried my best to match my profile picture with the cover picture, haha (but I already change my profile picture by now). Not a serious work really. If you look closely, few of the lines are not black in colour. That’s because I used coloured pens. Quite disappointed with how it appear on the screen after I scan it and I tried to fix it with photoshop, but it was too much work and I was in a rush to finish it. So I just leave it like that. Basically I used coloured pen to differentiate the subjects. Once the I put too much lines, the thing gets too complicated and it’s gonna be hard to tell apart the subjects. So yeah, fish is one of my favourite subjects.

Drawing with emotion

These are not the only drawings that I've drawn base on emotion. I have more, but most of them are a little bit too personal. HAHA. haaaiiihhh.... so these are the only few that I can publish to the public. uurrgghhh... This is so hard for me.

I couldn't remember why, but I was in a lot of pain. haha. Something went wrong I guess and I couldn't take it. I'm not sure! I just couldn't remember. 

Stress doing my assignment. duuuh
