Sabina Altynbekova

Sabina Altynbekova – dubbed the most beautiful volleyball player in the world or the living anime-girl.

They said she is too beautiful to play volleyball (I said why not?)

This 20 years old Kazakhstani was discovered by international media outlets while representing her country at 2014 Asian Junior Women’s Volleyball Championship in Taiwan. It was said that she was so attractive that it was a distraction to the sport. Fans weren’t even watching the games during the competition and instead just stared at her 😂 😂 😂

Jerry Yan and Barbie Hsu

Each piece completed is a labor of love.

Long before Korean drama craze spread in Asia (yes even before Winter Sonata), I think many girls of my generation relates to having Dao Ming Si as their first tall-dark-and-fictional first love. Meteor Garden (MG) paved the way to us girls realizing that yeah Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp were pretty but these Asian hunks were better. It was immensely popular back then that people literally stop what they were doing to get giddy-ish about the love-you-hate-you relationship between Shan Cai (Barbie Hsu) and Dao Ming Si (Jerry Yan). The absurdity of their relationship was so commically and painfully endearing.

It has been 16 years since MG first aired in Taiwan and across Asia but this couple still occupies a space in my heart.

On the 16th anniversary of the series, it was announced that Meteor Garden fresh remake is slated to air in 2018; new casts of course to cater to the new generation of viewers (the original casts and most fans are in our 40s now…just saying XD).

I completed this portrait of Jerry Yan and Barbie Hsu within a week, as a tribute to the original series. I used 2 reference photos and Photoshopped them together.

Media: graphite and charcoal on A3 paper.

Just another face

No one in particular. Just another beautiful face 😉

I am taking portrait commission (A4 size for pencil/stencil marker portrait and A4/A3 for watercolor stencil portrait), PM me for details. You can see some of my work under Portfolio.

Luciana Zogbi

I decided to draw beautiful Luciana Zogbi because she is so pretty! So who is she?

Luciana is a Brazilian-Lebanese singer, songwriter and musician who shot to fame online after her cover of John Legend’s critically acclaimed ‘All of Me’ went viral, garnering over 61 million views worldwide.

She kinda look like Jasmine from Aladdin, imo. Btw, low quality camera phone couldn’t capture the rich shading and tones and the actual portrait isn’t as pale as this. 😩
