Behind the Scenes: Mixing Skin tone for Seohyun Painting

Here's a look at how I mixed the skin color that I used for my SNSD Seohyun painting. 
All the info for the colors and brushes I used for this painting are available in the 
PIXELREASON TOOLBOX section of this website. Enjoy!

SNSD / Girls Generation - Seohyun Watercolor Painting

SNSD Girls Generation - Seohyun

By popular demand, here's my watercolor speed painting of Seohyun of SNSD (Girls Generation) aka Seobaby, aka Seolady.

She's the maknae (youngest member) of SNSD/Girls Generation and she's known as the "proper" or sometimes "uptight" one (in a good way). She's known to like reading and being educated, hence the books as the background ;)

Kim HyunA and KMUSIC Watercolor Painting

This painting is 4Minute's Kim HyunA (aka Hyun-a aka Hyun ah).
This was commissioned by Jae Sama, the CEO/Founder of the Kpop-website KMUSIC. 
KMUSIC also featured me in an article along with an interview! Be sure to check out the article on and show your support in the comments of the article!

With Gangnam Style with PSY, HyunA has probably been discovered by millions of people who never even knew what KPOP was/is. But let's also not forget her HUGE YouTube hit Bubble Pop in 2011. 

Kim HyunA is known for her sexy image and aggressive dance style, but for her true fans, HyunA is much more well known/loved for her dorky funny personality. Any talk show apperances or her time on IY (Invincible Youth) will have you becoming her fan in no time!

*Point of interest: If you look at the subscribe button at the end of this painting video, you'll notice it's Hyuna's favorite color yellow and I gave it a little bit of the same style as the 4Minute logo (the pixel-squares) :)

2PM Wooyoung - Drawing

2PM Wooyoung (click image for larger view)

This is 2PM's Jang Wooyoung 장우영 (aka Owl aka Mandu Cheeks aka AngAng aka Ssanti). 2PM is one of the biggest KPop boy groups and Wooyoung is known as the dancer and the funny member of 2PM.

There's a lot of things to respect him for (dance, being funny, singing (deuts with IU), acting (Dream High with Miss A's Suzy), hosting shows, Wooyoung's solo album), but what made him really respectable for me was the story that his father didn't want him to become a Kpop idol. So WooYoung would regularly write letters to his dad for 2 years trying to get his father's approval. Finally after Wooyoung proved himself through his hardwork and eventual success, his father accepted Wooyoung's choice and now writes letters to Wooyoung with words of encouragement.

KARA Goo Hara Painting

KARA Goo Hara

This is Goo Hara (or Koo Hara)  from the girl group KARA. When I was first discovering KPOP and Kara (at the same time), I found YouTube clips of this funny girl named Goo Hara from different variety shows. After that, I was hooked.

When Goo Hara is Boxing (she doesn't hold back!), Jumping up a slippery wall dressed as a giant stuffed animal, Bowling strikes, wrestling other idols with dominance, and most of all when she eats garlic to impress her mom, you can't help but smile when she gives that funny mischievous smile after she does it.
