Goodbye 2009 & My Last Paintings

This is not done yet & i guess it's around 30% more to meet completion

Probably this would be my final works for year 2009.
I painted this for an upcoming comic covers for a new graphite novels that would be launch and publish by a True Story Publishing soon.

But what is  interesting about this comic is not only for their shining full color illustrated but the storyline itself which is based on a true story. And if you are interested in learning more about the Islamic revival, there's no doubt this comics is absolutely for you.

According to Haji Hassan as the founder of the publishing house, the first package containing of the three issues will be release in january 2010.I'll try to get more details from Haji himself when i submit this paintings to him by next week.

A Million Dotted And Passions In Fraser Hills

A portrait of  malaysian prime minister  Dato' Sri Najib Tun Razak.
Used a drawing pen on paper, this is not hard to make only that we need an extra passion. It's really fun to work in pen drawing but i haven't apply this technique of what we call a pointillsm since graduated from college. It's a time consider. I will not choose this technique for my commission work unless my clients want it.
75% was an outdoor work. While my friend searched for birds for his snapshots, I busy myself draw in the birdwatcher house in Fraser Hills, one of the cold place in our country located in Pahang. The temperature was so cold on the third day we was there. There's nothing we can do cause of the frost was covered everything around us. So i made a finished and a final touch in the studio.
Frankly, i'm not really satisfied with the final result . Look a bit stiff. But I made another piece with the same technique just to satisfied myself. This time is not a portrait but a landscape scenery, look much better. I'll post it soon.

A New Look On My Gallery Site

Time passing and it's been a month since my last post here. I've been really busy, painting a lot of paintings, private commissions, paintings for upcoming project, for books and so on. I will be able to share some of what I have been working on very soon.
And at the same time i'm still work out on designing my blog site. As what you can see, if you type http://www.gallery.fazrularts.com it will no longer bring you to the page you used to visit before. It will redirect you to the new webpage that totally look 100% differents from the old version. Much easier to view with easy click to go from one pic to another. So where is the old gallery blog pages?

Do not worry, i never make it disable from my blog page,instead..i gave a new name on it.Click Fazrul Arts Portfolio and you can see it all with the very same contents.The portfolio site is the place where i will upload my new drawings or artworks with details info compared to the gallery site which is only a simple images in thumbnails style.But why should i make two different concept page with nearly a same contents instead of one? Because i believe this is the best way to save my readers time by giving them an option to choose either to view it in a simple thumbnails or go details with the blog style .

As we all knew, some people they are always on the move and times are always not on their side.
