Life drawing

Easter holiday will coming soon, the kitchen in my flat becoming so quiet and clean. Tonight I was sitting in the kitchen to practice my life drawing, the main tools I have used are color pencil and mark pen. It was finished within one hour.

The House of 1000 Mirrors

Here I create a couple of simple illustration based on an existing story called The House of 1000 Mirrors, in order to explore the different materials could be used to draw. This is the original technology—color pencil and mark pen. 

The House of 1000 Mirrors


Long ago in a small, faraway village, there was a place known as the House of 1000 Mirrors. A small, happy little dog learned of this place and decided to visit. When he arrived, he bounced happily up the stairs to the doorway of the house. He looked through the doorway with his ears lifted high and his tail wagging as fast as it could. To his great surprise, he found himself staring at 1000 other happy little dogs with their tails wagging just as fast as his. He smiled a great smile, and was answered with 1000 great smiles just as warm and friendly. As he left the House, he thought to himself, "This is a wonderful place. I will come back and visit it often."


In this same village, another little dog, who was not quite as happy as the first one, decided to visit the house. He slowly climbed the stairs and hung his head low as he looked into the door. When he saw the 1000 unfriendly looking dogs staring back at him, he growled at them and was horrified to see 1000 little dogs growling back at him. As he left, he thought to himself, "That is a horrible place, and I will never go back there again."


All the faces in the world are mirrors. What kind of reflections do you see in the faces of the people you meet?
