Medium: Prang Watercolor on Daler-Rowney Watercolor Sketchpad
Q: Hi! I know you love to draw/sketch. :) Can you make a list of the materials you have used? Or at least the ones you recommend :D (watercolors, pencils, sketchpad, markers and the like) Thanks!
To be honest, I’m not particular with the brands. But here are the list of materials I’m using right now:
- Paintbrush: Daley-Rowney
- Gouche (introduction set): Daley-Rowney
- Sketching Pencils: Royal & Langnickle (sometimes, I just use a magic pencil)
- Colored Pencils: Faber Castell (Watercolor)
- Watercolor: Prang
- Colored Pens: Staedtler and ProMarker
- Pens (for Outlines): Artliner’s Calligraphy Pen and Createcolor Studioline
- Acrylic: Not sure. I think I left mine in Manila.
For pen and pencil sketches, I just use my Moleskine sketchbook. I use Daler-Rowney’s watercolor sketchpad when I want to paint.
Q: Since when did you construct yer theme? :3
When? Hm… Well, I got my theme when I was visiting Manila, so that’s somewhere between August 4-8. :)
Q: Would you trade your 55-200mm for a 50mm?
What’s the aperture of the 50mm? If it’s 1.4, then yes! The lower the aperture is, the better! Another thing to consider should also consider if the field that you like to shoot.
Hahaha. I don’t know.
Q: You have a subtle resemblance to Kim Hyuna. She’s a korean super star, look her up if you have time. :)
Thank you. Hahaha. :3
Katy Perry: Part of Me Movie
When it comes to admiration and idolization, I tend to have very high standards (I know right? I’m plain weird). I don’t just adore someone because they’re gorgeous or they’re talented, but because even if they have all that God-given blessings, they remain down-to-earth and kind. And Katy Perry just added herself to my not-so very long list of people I admire.
Before watching this movie, I was certain of one thing: I love Katy Perry. After watching this, I just love her even more. Through this movie, you’ll witness that Katy Perry is very much just like us: a normal human being with emotions and dreams. We all have this notion that these celebrities are like gods and goddesses but this movie is telling you otherwise; that her success did not happen overnight and that she had her own ups and downs before she became this famous and while she still is. Personally, I think this movie is very inspiring (especially for girls) and yeah, I recommend it.
Random Fact: There were only two people in the movie house. Me and a guy. Haha.
Nestlé Crunch Ice Cream
A few weeks ago, I was invited to join a campaign for an Nestle Crunch ice cream stick. I’m a big fan of ice cream and Nestle Crunch, so why wouldn’t I say no to this opportunity? :)
