Hello!! ^0^)/ I LOVE ghost stories or spooky legends and ur illustration made it 100% more intrtesting! maybe u could tell me more about the Railway couple, Girl in the front row seat And tv eyes? Itll be awsome if u could tq!
hello yes spooky urban legends are neat!! i’ve already talked about the railway couple here so i’ll move on to the others
Girl in the Front Row Seat:
"It is the last show of the night and all is quiet inside the cinema hall, save for the steady drone of dialogue emanating from the screen. A little girl sits in the front row of the hall, alone. All of a sudden, she giggles wildly. Her features are indistinct, shrouded by the darkness. But when the lights come on later, the little girl has disappeared. The only evidence of her existence? A clutch of toys left behind on the seat." (exerpt from the Singapore Urban Legends Myths and Mysteries book)
This one originated from the Jurong area, which is one of the most haunted places in singapore! it used to have a lot of banana trees (which are known to be homes of ghosts) before it was cleared for building HDB flats, and so because of that they say that the ghosts haunt the flats in spite. one of the hauntings include a pair of eyes staring at you from the TV, even after it is turned off and the cord is unplugged.
Can you tell me about the railway couple?
sure! firstly, the link to a forum post about it
apparently there was a sighting of this ghostly couple at the railway station at Bukit Timah (in Singapore) many years ago, where there was an accident that claimed the lives of those two poor lovers (what they were doing there and how exactly did they die i have no idea but its still sad)
at the time of that news people have been flocking to the site to try to capture the ghost couple in their photographs, since they rarely show up in photographs if at all
it closed recently and has been reopened as a conserved building, im gonna try visiting that place one of these days!
man i love your batman shirt!
oh thanks!! its one of my fave shirts that i wear all too often haha
thoughts on drawing
someone asked me a question on how i get my stuff to look like they do, and i wanted to share what i said to them here as well :’>
for myself i always keep a constant critical eye whenever i draw something, even if it’s just for fun. i always keep questioning my decisions, like why do i choose this particular pose, these particular colours, this particular ‘style’ and etc. coz i try to find which combinations work best to bring out the artwork to its fullest potential
it’s mostly thanks to years of constant, frequent drawing and training my eye to spot mistakes and ‘see better’. i try to look at other great artists’ work and imagine the kind of thought processes they have as they draw, using their ‘decisions’ (composition, colour palettes, subject matter, etc) to my advantage and implementing those into my own work, see what works and why and what doesn’t work and why not. and im still learning this.
eventually these things will become part of your own artistic sense and it will evolve naturally as long as you keep at it and challenge yourself every time. that’s how you can tell people’s work apart from each other, its the uniqueness they’ve achieved in their work that sets them apart from the crowd. and you can usually tell if someone really loves what they do, it shows in their work.
be patient with yourself and don’t stress out too much, observe from daily life and take note of the little things that inspire you and make you think deeply. happy drawing!!
