Perseverance, Determination, and Passion

  Hi everyone,

I  drew these two pictures about a year ago,

the left one first, then the right one.

I  colored in these drawing with color pencils.

It represents perseverance and determination.

Because everyone in the world goes through tough times,

but to be honest  not all of us make it through.

Even if you know you’re not going to make it, do it anyway.

So the next time you’re faced with (a) challenge, change, or tough times.

Keeping going, put passion ahead of you, make the best of it,

accept it’s actually happening and push through it.

That’s all it takes.

Creatures of the Earth

IMG_4807

Hey everyone,

this drawing was done in a cartoon style, with mostly curved lines and less detail using color pencils.  I used  small strokes that were evident. Remember to care for animals and show them some love (some animals might be dangerous but you can  help /protect them in different ways).

Reach the skies

IMG_4813

Hello readers,

Today is a very exciting day because *cue drum-roll*, it is my blog’s anniversary!

It has officially been 3 years since I started my blog.  So to celebrate this special day, I took on painting.

In my painting I created a scene with a lake

That inspires you to wonder and awake

With skies of red and yellow

Creates a spark of mellow

Shades of blue sparkling at noon

The water reflecting the  moon

The stars of knowledge in the gradient skies

with an isolated moon to watch them fall and rise

the hill top on which no-one stood

one sail-boat decides it could

A Fierce Dragon Watching Over the Universe

IMG_4805Hi readers, remember to stay safe, smart, and strong!

I finished the drawing of this detailed dragon today,

this art piece was made  with color pencil,

outlined in black pen and embellishments were added with a uni-ball Figno gel pen.

I used only (excluding black and white) shades of blue and green.

I love it’s fierce look and I’m pretty excited about it since it is only my second dragon.

Thank to everyone who reads my blog!

Minnie, going back to 1928

IMG_1314

This is the first time I drew Minnie, I like the way it turned out. It’s fun to step back and draw cartoon characters. I used only a few classic colors ( Noir Black, Rose Red, Yellow Ochre,  White Quartz and a little bit of Space Gray.)

 No One to Trust Except Sisters

Winner of Short Story Contest: Janya, (12-14 Age Category), Milpitas Library

November 2019

 No One to Trust Except Sisters             

The thin wispy clouds were tangled with the twilight sky. I stared out the open car window, the wind combing through my long, dark tresses. “Are we there yet?” I asked my eldest sister, Cassie for the fifty seventh time no eighty seventh time. “Almost, just around the corner, Liz.” Replied Cassie. I looked at Suzanne, my younger sister facing the window. I put my hand in hers, she turned and her almond colored eyes met with mine. “Don’t be nervous, Suzanne” I told her softly. “I’m not” She replied hastily a clear sign she was.

Our parents Mrs. and Mr. Caraway usually come with us but as world travelers they had a last minute project. So Cassie, Suzanne and I are on our own to the Heather family home, they were our cousins or so we were told.

Cassie parked the car. We each carried our suitcases and stepped in unison toward the wooden cabin-like house. The porch stairs creaked. I looked to the side and noticed a stone statue of a dwarf, its mouth in an ugly frown, one of its spindly arms raised up, palm forward. As if it was saying “Stop, don’t go in!” I raised my hand toward the door, then paused. “Why don’t you knock?” I tell Suzanne. “I can’t even reach it!” she complained. “Ugh enough, I’ll do it!” Cassie shouted over our voices.  “Sisters!” she mumbled, about to knock Cassie lifted her hand “Creeaak!” The door opened revealing a lady her hair with streaks of gray tied in a bun. Her gray eyes tired but she was persistent to keep a smile. “Oh welcome Lizzian, Cassie, and…” She looked at Suzanne searching her mind. “Suzanne.” I finished for her. “Oh yes, sorry about that, I’m Mrs. Heather.” “Come in girls you are going to have so much fun, but we’ll leave today for rest since you must be so tired, your room is down the corridor, and Mr. Heather will be back in the morning.

After Mrs. Heather left, we heard “Un deux trois …” then a small “Hello?” broke the silence. We turned around to find a tiny girl, her brown hair short and bangs right over her brows. “My name is Louise, I’ll show you your room.” She said. “My name is Cassie and they are–” Cassie was cut off by Louise “- Lizzian and Suzanne.” Louise finished. “What are you waiting for?” Louise proclaimed.

We followed Louise down the narrow hallway. “So let me guess, parents are busy and you have to spend rest of your summer here.” Louise said casually. “How did you know?” I retorted. “I know everything besides, Ma tells me everything.” Louise replied. “But Mrs. Heather didn’t say anything about you.” Suzanne told Louise before I could stop her. Louise didn’t say anything but I could tell she was frowning even in the dark.

“Here’s your room.” she said. We walked in the room, waited for our eyes to adjust to the light and dropped our suitcases in the corner. The walls were mint green and white. The bed had red reindeer designs all over, beside it a bright red closet.  . There was one tall window with a red frame. It appeared to be the most colorful part of  the house. “It looks like Christmas in here.” Cassie remarked. “Oui, Ma used to be obsessed with Christmas and winter… until…” Louise said softly looking like she was about to let out a few tears. “Good night, Caraways!” she said instead, smiling then she left. I threw myself against the bed, Suzanne and Cassie joined in. “Good night.” I whispered. “Good Night” they whispered back in a chorus. I somehow fell asleep in the cold, hard bed.

“Thud, thud, thud ….. Thud, thud, thud” Suzanne got up, peered through the window and screamed. I woke up still hazy. Hitting her head against the window was a cloaked girl. Her skin white and gray and terribly frostbitten. Her eyes replaced by empty sockets. She jumped at the window and vanished. We heard a deep growl. “Sue, come here! “I tugged her arm. We stood there frozen with fear. Cassie woke up “What are you doing?”

“There was” – I caught my breath, “a girl with frostbite, banging on the window!” “With no eyeballs!!!” Suzanne added making it kind of unbelievable. “Yeah! Right I’m sooooo scared!!” Cassie said sarcastically. “Next time keep the tomfoolery to yourself!” Cassie shouted. “They are not lying, I saw her too” said a soft voice. We turned to see Louise. “I saw her, she spoke to me, and she wants you to leave… forever and…” Louise continued. We heard another growl as the floor broke into two, the wooden floor boards breaking in groans. “Caraways!!” said a disembodied voice, “It’s time to wake up!”

I gasped, it was Mrs. Heather “Breakfast time!” she said cheerfully. I looked at my sisters “we need to talk” I mouthed. We hastily ate our pancakes and thanked Mrs. and Mr. Heather. Cassie finished first then left for a while. I wondered why Louise didn’t come for breakfast. Louise however decided to come along for the meeting. We all sat around a pink rug in Louise’s room. Awkward silence. “So I had a weird dream,” I started then explained everything. Their eyes opened wide as I spoke, apparently they had the exact same dream. “This is not normal, you have to leave now” Louise said loudly then softly she added “connected dreams are a bad sign.”

Mrs. Heather came in “Girls, you have to try my lemon cookies”. “No thanks” we replied. “All Caraways are allergic to lemon” I lied when she looked at me persistently, I didn’t want to try anything from this house anymore. “Alright” she said in a rough tone. My sisters eyed me. When Mrs. Heather left the room, glass shattered behind us. It was the window, the curtain flew up to revealing a storm outside. “I’ll tell my Ma about this,” said Louise leaving the room.

“Did you see her locket?” I asked my sisters. “It has the picture of the cloaked girl we saw; with the words ‘Always in Remembrance’.” “She looked like Louise, does that mean Louise … is the girl?”  My sisters’ faces turned white in horror. “But that’s not possible, let’s just leave.”

“Mrs. Heather can we go to the park?” I asked trying to smile. “It’s raining cats and dogs.” She replied. “That’s what makes it so fun, besides we have plenty of umbrellas.” Piped in Suzanne with the most adorable face. “Fine.” said Mrs. Heather. Clearly she was holding a grudge for the cookie incident. “Thank you so much Mrs. Heather!” I said.

“Let’s get into our car and leave.” I whispered, “What about our stuff?” Suzanne asked. “It’s in our car, I packed it in this morning, so we could leave.” Cassie flushed red.

We drove for an hour, our minds tangled in a million thoughts.

“Thud. Thud. Thud!”

Suzanne screamed, “It’s her, it’s her!!” “You think you can just leave?” asked a familiar voice. The girl’s hood was off, she was tiny with short brown hair and bangs. She was frostbitten and her eyes were dark. It was LOUISE!

Louise was in front of our car, banging on the window. She seemed to be getting weaker, she became pale and transparent. Louise screeched “Come back, reviens maintenant!!” “Don’t look, don’t listen!” screamed Cassie. She drove at breakneck speed.

Finally we lost her. I hugged Suzanne tightly. “I’ve got your back and I know you’ve got mine.” Suzanne whispered. “Always.” I whispered back!

The Lady in Black & White

IMG_9585

The Lady in Black and White

Hi everyone, this is another piece I whipped up for a former sales event.

The contrast between the white paper and the black ink is very capturing to the eye.

The  young lady’s  dress itself is made up of various patterns.

I love the way the red neck piece, belt, bracelet and shoes accents the patterned dress.

I added a vague layer of lemon yellow around the figure, to capture the eye and to not have the  lady blending too  much with the other patterns.

That particular week I was in a streak with a lemon yellow touch.

I  especially enjoy drawing lots intricate patterns in black ink.

Shadow cat version 3

IMG_9573

Hi readers, shadow cat version 3 is finally here! This version is inspired by version 2, but, honestly i do not know which part of the day this is.  You may have already noticed the  big difference, shadow cat’s got a friend! Finally, shadow cat can watch the beautiful moonrise and set with a best friend . I used different colored crayons for the background by the time i was  finished with the background my hands ached with pain and my palm was faintly colorful. I created this for a sales event at my school and it got sold! But, now i miss it and i am actually kind of sad…                          P.S. Don’t forget! 🙂  About the Pixel Billboard Contest,

IMG_9588IMG_9590IMG_9592IMG_9596Hi friends, I made Father’s Day cards and I wanted to share these cards for inspiration, so you can show  your gratefulness and love to your father or fatherly figure(s).

Father’s Day is a  joyful celebration honoring fathers or fatherly figures and celebrating fatherhood. So I hope to inspire you to make your own card and fill it with admiration and thankfulness. Remember cards aren’t the only way to let your father know how grateful you are. A  gentle hug, kind words, a  warm smile or a reminder of how grateful you are is sweet too.

Happy Father’s Day!!!!!!!!

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban – Hermione with the Time Turner

IMG_7496

 

Hi readers,

in the drawing i drew Hermione Granger

(Who actually is Emma Watson the actress playing Hermione)

So Hermione is a student at Hogwarts, an academy for wizards, sorcerers and  good witches.

She, Harry Potter and Ron (Ronald Weasley ) go on unexpected adventures!

Hermione is a sarcastic, fun and enjoyable character if you get to know her.

I hope you enjoy my drawing!

Meet May-Lee and Owlicious

mandala bird mandala owl

“Meet my new  friends May Lee, the peacock and Owlicious, the owl!” 

I sketched out my feather-worthy friends with a black  pen.     

The peacock was drawn recently, and the owl  was drawn 1 year ago.

You may see the improvement i had in the two drawings!

You may  also notice the writing is shorter, from now on i will post mini pieces of writing about the art.

To new beginnings – Caricature

IMG_7867

Hi everyone,

Happy New Year!

I went to Santa Cruise Boardwalk, it was super fun,

And there I saw a lady at a stand,

drawing caricatures**  for people.

I watched her draw two men, it was beautiful.

Since it’s a new year and I never done a caricature before,

I got back home,

and began drawing my dad in a caricature version.

I love trying new things and will maybe try even more new

and amazing things!

I love how it turned out, it looked truly magical!

I used bright colors, I tried my best, of course!

**Caricature:

Definition: When people or animals are drawn, in a cartoonish way, often enlarging, or minimizing (basically exaggerated) certain unique / striking facial features/ characteristics. With usage of minimal lines but still quite a realistic look with a touch of cartoonism creating a comic feel /grotesque effect.  Sometimes with extra props in the background. Where: Caricatures are mostly done in tourist spots, or fairs, famous events and many more places.

Kawaii Art

IMG_7869IMG_7871

Hi readers,

I went to my public library, in the new book section was a book called “Kawaii doodle class sketching super – cute tacos, sushi, clouds, flowers, and more” it is by Zainab Khan creator of pic candle. And because I love drawing, of course I had to check it out!

Once I opened the book, I just loved the kawaii style.

By, now you’d be wondering “what is kawaii?”

Kawaii

Kawaii kind of means cute or cuteness in Japanese, it can be used to name anything cute, but who knew it would become a famous art style, that clearly defines cute! Kawaii art can be a little different depending on who describes it, but most people would say  they are drawn with simple black outlines and colored with pastel colors and are  mostly inanimate objects, that have a rounded appearance, with a face (that looks very cute) they are sometimes drawn with oversized heads and quite smaller bodies! Their expressions are minimal. (The picture below of a  light pink strawberry is done by Zainab Khan all credits go to her for the picture of a strawberry)

strawberry

I hope you like my kawaii drawing, it’s my first attempt. I kept the theme of artistic objects that most people use to make art! Some mini scenes have meaning and morals, or quotes! I did not look inside the book while drawing, this came out of my inspiration, while I was looking at my workspace at the crayons and the pencils that is how I got the idea! I may color this art piece, if so I’ll post it, but I am not sure. I would love it if you send me some kawaii pictures that you have hand-drawn! Oh, and by the way which is your favorite character comment down below!

Colors amidst the black & white – The California Fires

The recent California fires have affected many people, animals, and things in/ near Paradise badly. It was very saddening to watch the news. But not all is lost, it’s not the things or the houses that make Paradise, it’s the people, their unique, loving personality that made Paradise a beautiful place that is very, very special and it was horrifying what happened during the terrible fires. “We need to restore the precious Paradise, and keep the rest of the world protected at the same time!”

My drawing is about the fires. From the black ashes,Paradise is born again. As I’ve shown in my drawing sometimes, somethings may leak through, because no one can stop everything, but we can if we try hard, have hope and believe in the impossible, (those hands represents people keeping the rest of the world safe and restoring the lost).

In my drawing the hands (which represents people – YOU)  are trying to keep the bird (People of Paradise) safe from danger, just like many people did during the fires, they helped other people, neighbors, friends to escape the fires. They were brave, they took a risk for someone else, they were self-less and a hero, and you can be one too! I wish to applaud each and every person who was a hero that day.

I hope everyone reading this will spend a few minutes praying for the people of Paradise, make donations and or volunteer your time and skills.

“We need to take action, we need to do it together!”

Prayers & hugs,

Janya

Have you ever wondered or wished if  you can  be “organized” and have  “fun” at the same time? Well, it looks like it finally came true! As you can see above in the picture, I have made a LEGO construction, you may be thinking “what is it?

Well here’s your answer! I made a LEGO desk organizer that can hold  certain supplies like pencils, markers, pens, etc. There’s a special area where you can put your favorite writing tool!(I put my purple marker there!) It can hold your hair accessories. It even has a coin bank and a mini shelf! Wait! I’m not done yet!! It also has a little area where you can keep whatever you want! I am proud of this creation because it’s an original!! I added special touches and put my heart into this!

Hi readers, you probably know i love sketching, i sketch all the time, sketching is the foundation of drawing! So in the picture above i drew a young girl, walking from school to home. She is holding up a umbrella and she has a mini suitcase bag. It is also raining but more like drizzling. She reminds me of Nancy Drew**. I hope you like my sketch, I personally love it! 

** Nancy Drew is a famous detective in a book series who solves cases and is really  smart. Its such a good book I encourage you to read the Nancy Drew series too!

Happy Halloween! 2018

witch painting.jpg

Hi guys, HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Today I was so inspired by the Halloween theme!   I  drew this drawing (it may not be spooky but it still looks cute!) with a witch (Lucy Brush) (a good witch!) sitting in an open forest mountain scene. She has her trusty cat friend (sunrise/ sunny) who loves going on adventures! I made vines along with flowers hang from the top, I think it looks beautiful!

In the picture, Lucy Brush, the witch has her hat and the chatty pumpkin with her. The sunrise looks beautiful along with the mountains and plants.

I picture Lucy as a kindhearted, beautiful (on the inside and the outside) and a hero! What do think Lucy looks like? Comment below!  BONUS FUN: send a picture of how Lucy might look like!

Charcoal Crazy!

charcoal 1

charcoal 2

Hi readers, guess what?

I went to the Yosemite Mountains “it is beautiful” the flowers, trees and the birds!  Anyway, we walked and walked through the trails when we came upon a tree; it was burnt for some reason, it was so shrunk in size compared to the other  super tall and ginormous trees so might as well as call it a tree stump.

Wait before you continue here’s a little joke! : How did the tree stump feel when she wasn’t tall enough to go on a roller coaster called paseo aéreo imposible? (which means  impossible air ride!)Ans : She was much stumped!

 

Now where was I? Oh right so I was like

burnt tree left = coal + creative artist = a coal masterpiece!

so I broke off a couple of pieces like 2 – 3 and wrapped it in a napkin so I don’t get hands messy because it was still wet it kept on breaking apart! When I came back home I couldn’t draw because it was still wet coal; so I waited a couple of days before I started. I loved how even if you make a mistake you can fix it! It also blends very well, my hands got so messy during the process, but that didn’t matter after I finished drawing, just my work did! the one I did with my grid paper was for practice, I personally think that it looks better than the one on top but I really like how wonderful it turned out! Hopefully you like this post. I would love to hear from you, if you have something you want me to try drawing, “I am always up for challenges!”

Friends forever


Quote:

I would rather walk with a friend in the dark,

than alone in the light.

– “Hellen Keller ”                                                                                                                              


 

Here is a poem about friendship,

I wrote with a little help from my  wonderful cousin Davina”

Friendship poem:

Friendship so complicated to understand

but easy to feel.

Like an endless chain  of happiness,

it  flows on and on.

Someone who  brings you to light,

in darkest of times.

Emotions  of hope and joy from  friends ,

feeling comforted in warmth

from a bad nightmare. 

Friends are there for you no matter what,

and that’s what is  important! 

Friends make life worth it!

“Easter egg surprise” and “flower crazy”

 

I really hope you like my painted Easter eggs and flower wreath and bouquet ( my mom helped me make the bouquet)!

I was inpired by Easter because…

Easter is a special time that only comes once a year, spring is symbolic of easter, Most importantly Jesus rises with glory to heaven! Life is reborn  just like a Phoenix, it is the time of happiness and joy, it’s a whole new day.

 Happy Easter!🐰

A present 🎁 for my Grandpa

crayon (4)

Hi Readers,

This drawing was a present for my dear grandfather with love. I drew it for him because his favorite animal is Cow.

Because when he was a kid he had a cow, of whom he was very fond of, because she was his friend. He enjoyed sweet, fresh, tasty cow milk every morning, he took care of the cow (he fed the cow and gave her bath and played with the cow)

The cow’s head shape was a bit hard to draw, i used many colors and mixed some too, i drew the drawing with lots of details and i put a lot of hard work into it.

Stay tuned for the next post (Easter Egg Suprise)

My First Artwork at an Exhibit

In my school we have art classes and we were asked to draw “Optical Illusions”. This was the optical illusion I drew. I was so excited when my art work was chosen to represent my school for the annual Youth Art Month Exhibit displayed at the Baylor Scott & White Medical Center. When I drew the optical illusion I used a black marker and color pencils. At the hospital there was a school orchestra playing music and there were refreshments. Many beautiful artworks by students were displayed nicely in the room; every piece of art in the room was creative. I had so much fun looking at the really amazing art there. It was a great life experience!

3d Illusion

IMG_8790Look deeply into to my drawing, what do you see?

Does the hand seem to pop out?

Did you know that it’s just an illusion?

The hand is’nt really there, it just seems that it is a real hand, that’s why it’s an illusion.

It’s so amazing the illusion drawing looks so realistic, it looks like it’s actually there & real.

I love the way it is a unique  type of art.

It can help you to be inpired just like me!

Unicorn Magic

unicorns are magical, they are legendary. unicorns are told to be very friendly and kind creatures.

they are quite shy. as said in the books unicorns are rare to see, and if you find them you get 3 wishes!

unicorns right now are a  myth, legend and are said not to be real, but no one really knows, so they could actually be real!

I would love to see one!

This drawing was inspired by unicorns,

I hope this inspires you too!

😉 see you later!

Magic!!! ✨

Hi bloggers , sorry for not posting I got really sick!

I wrote a poem about “magic”! 😁

well here’s a poem:

magic,

so amazing,

a mystery .

a miracle .

impossible to believe ,

but yet true in your hearts,

it’s there when you believe in it .

it’s your best friend when you’re in trouble,

you can whip up spells with your wand,

and bring up some sparkles.

you gotta love it!

 

Hope you like my poem about magic.

poof! See you later!! 😉✨

Bye,😉
