Hey there!

This is a digital speed painting of my idol! Talented Singaporean singer-songwriter JJ Lin (林俊杰) Lin Jun Jie!

Always wanted to paint JJ Lin (林俊杰) but I started this series with Jay Chou (周杰伦) because I’m afraid I might not do a good job with with it. Looking at the result, I think I’m quite satisfied except that I spent too much time on it, took me about 5 hours for this piece!!

In terms of resemblance, I think I did a better job with JJ Lin because there was feedback that the eyes of my Jay Chou painting looked like those of Gary Cao’s!

In any case, I hope JJ won’t get mad if he sees that this painting doesn’t resemble him very much! XP

In fact, compared to the Jay Chou (周杰伦) painting, this painting is of much higher dimensions. That’s probably why I took about 3 times longer!

I plan to a series of such videos of celebrities because I think it’s super cool to watch the painting process! :D
I’m kind of addicted to making such videos! Hahahaha!

Hello!

This is a digital ‘speed’ painting of talented taiwanese singer-songwriter Jay Chou (周杰伦) !
I plan to do a series of such videos of celebrities because it’s so cool to watch the painting process! :D
I’m kind of addicted to making such videos! Hahaha!

Actually, I wanted to do a JJ Lin one first because he is my idol and I really like his music. However, I was afraid I might not do a good job so I started with Jay Chou first :P

I’m open to suggestions to who to paint, so do leave a comment! :D

Hey :)

I love to paint and so here’s my latest digital painting practice. I also recorded my slow and full-of-mistakes painting process so that I can spot my mistakes and I hope it benefits you too!

You can actually see that I had proportion problems at the beginning when blocking. Hahaha! I’m still trying very hard to learn to paint digitally! :D

I kinda like the result of this piece because I can finally get more form in my painting particularly in this piece. The final color scheme is also very close to what I was looking for.
Took me about an hour to complete this painting from scratch.

It’s a fun and nice exercise and I’ll improve along the way and hope you’ll like this video demonstration!

On a side note, I will be serving my National Service from mid-September 2009 till about a couple of years later. Probably less updates during this time, but do check back because I’m planning for a surprise in this website!

Hint: Digiron will strike back with his new-found weapon!
Update – 17 May 2011: The Easter Egg on this website has been removed since version 6.0

cheers!

Latest Update (6 September 2009): Ronald Fong’s 11 Second Club August Entry Finished 60 of 188 entries! That’s about top 32% and I’m happy about that! I will strive to bring this percentage down in my next entries. :D

Here is my entry for the 11 Second Club August 2009 Competition! :D

I had some difficulty uploading my clip to the competition earlier, hope it gets through! This is my first submitted entry to the 11 Second Club!

I learnt from this exercise that I have to keep my poses simple and “stupid”. I had some poses which were much more difficult to read that what I have now, but I discarded them after generous critiques from my friends. If I find time, I’ll pose a compilation of my work in progress before I arrived at this final. I am aware these poses can be greatly improved and I have some unusual acting choices here, but nevertheless and most importantly, I can feel that I’m improving!

Critiques and comments are most welcomed!
