Lee Jinki (Onew of SHINee), Happy Birthday! by icarus-redemption Lee Jinki (Onew of SHINee), Happy Birthday! by icarus-redemption
This is a watercolour painting (fan art) I did to celebrate Lee Jinki's (SHINee's Onew) birthday which is on the 14th December! I'm posting this a day early since I might not be able to post it tomorrow.

I used a regular dry watercolour palette and I added some textures and touch ups digitally.

To be honest I regret choosing watercolour for Onew's birthday edit but painting is definitely one of my weaker areas and I'm still trying to improve.

Please do not use this painting without permission.

even if i was the only one and like it just because it's onew (tho it's not true, i also like it as a piece of art), other comments prove that you did great ^^

Ah, thank you! LOL I guess in this piece Onew looks a little more feminine/girly (doesn't help that the lips are red and that his hair is longer). When he dresses as Eunsook, though...*sigh* he will always be prettier than me.

Btw you have so many fan art pictures! You are a very dedicated MVP! I struggle with drawing/painting his face tbh. I'm used to drawing very sharp features but his are very soft and delicate.

Do you use your tumblr a lot? I do edits on tumblr as well!

i guess most of asian look a little more feminine to other races that are not into the asian stuff. at least this is what most of my friends tell me.
eunsook was so cute (he seemed like a little shy girly girl to me) :P

i don't know if i'm that dedicated - i just enjoy drawing him - he suits my style (kind of soft). he's like neverending source of facial expression and i just save his pictures like: omg, ill draw this later. and that one as well. oh, and those. ^^;

nah, i just put random stuff on my tumblr.... i can't do edits. also - digital art is impossible to me T^T;;; (i spend more time on twitter since its easily accessible from my mobile)

That's true. Even though I'm asian I was a little disturbed at first by how feminine some looked. Than again you also have ones that look completely manly. Ugh Eunsook! Most people think that Eunsook looked the least girly but to me, it was Jonghyun, hahaha.

Oh, I think you are extremely dedicated! Also, what is that stamp thing you put on your artworks? Is it your watermark?

eunsook could deceive some, but jjong's dino shaped face was too obvious xD

yup, it's kind of watermark, since my drawings were stolen few times already, i thought of putting it on them from now on (tho it doesn't prevent them from being stolen again T^T; ). it's my nickname made in a way that resembles seal stamps ^^;

I remember once Eunsook turned up on my tumblr dashboard and I thought "Who's this girl?" OTL

O.o They were stolen? That's horrible! Were they reuploaded on tumblr? dA? That's the difficult thing about watermarks. The smaller ones don't get in the way of your artwork too much but are much easier to edit out than the larger ones. You have a very cool watermark, though. Maybe I should consider getting one...then again, my stuff isn't popular enough for people to want to take it, hahaha.
