The Dark Knight’s RC Ride

December 29th, 2009 by tarakucha

Shot on a black mounting board, with some additional light placed randomly all over to test out how it’d look. I wanted to do a back-lighting set-up, but the car was not big enough to hide the not-so big flashlight. Still managed to maintain the blue-ish look of the movie though.

This is actually a 1/24 Remote Control car toy. I got it cheap. Don’t really like how it automatically move backwards when you turn it on. And now I am really tempted to buy the big-ass batmobile including the dark knight himself to sit inside the cockpit. Hmm.

Dwarf Vader: Out of The Dark Side

December 29th, 2009 by tarakucha

After discovering Avanaut’s awesome Photostream, I am slowly trying to get back into toy photography. This is an old Happy Meal toy shot on a white mounting board.

Movie Sketchy: Holmes, Sherlock

December 28th, 2009 by tarakucha

Medium: Adobe Flash CS3 brush tool

The Robert Downey Jr & Guy Ritchie version, anyway. The movie rocked.

I haven’t been drawing in a while, and I had quite a bit of a challenge with this one at first. After trying too hard to make it look ‘real’, i scrapped that one n went with a more natural doodle approach. Will try to color this later.

December’s almost over..and so is the year 2009..wow..when did the time go?

Earlier this month, a couple of very significant things have happened…namely, our baby Aafiyah’s turned 7 months..and our 2nd year anniversary as husband and wife. Time really flies when you’re with the best for company. It was too late to plan for any real trip like last year, but we made do with what we could. PD can still be fun, yo.

Although these events were of joyous occasions, I’ve also had to endure some very excruciating pain courtesy of a fractured molar, a fever, some headaches, silly inner turmoils and insecurities, you know, those kind of things…nothing i want to really write about.

I also went for a little photography outing with my buddy at FRIM. It’s been a while since I went jungle-trekking. Got a couple of shots, it was a good time, a good workout…(I’m not really in good shape..it’s getting rotunder in the belly. New year resolution! The same one! Again!)
I didn’t realize there were so many KL-ites who were into jogging in the middle of the jungle. Heh. From the seniors to the parents carrying these little babies…and there I was, with my torn jeans. Really? Jeans? Man.

Melat said the outing reinvigorated his passion for photography. Although wedding jobs were few a far between, it got old for him. He’s even went on to go for another outing with Fadli at the Orchid Park. Good for them.

Me? I want to be reinvigorated about my work. I haven’t even been seriously drawing either. I want to be passionate again about what I do. It’s been a while since I’ve had that feeling. I don’t know…Hopefully next year will be better. InsyaAllah, God willing.

Most of the guys in  the office are gonna be finishing up their contracts by the end of this month. Next week. Man.. That’s got me bummed out quite a bit. Now I really hope next year won’t suck so much.

So yeah..I think it’s still not too late to say Happy Maal Hijrah 1431. May we move forward to better things, to being better beings.

~ Amin.
