Commission: Perfume by annsquare
Commission: Perfume
This is another magazine illustration for The Spectatorial, to accompany a review article about the novel and its movie adaptation "Perfume: Story of a Murderer".  The article is yet to be published online. 

Conceptually, I try to tie together her fiery red hair and the juice dripping from the squashed plums (in one scene in the movie she's cleaning plums) to suggest blood - wanted to convey a disturbing mood but not to make it too explicitly bloody!  Had a ton of fun with the colors. 

Pencil, watercolors, color pencil, Photoshop (blurring, color adjustment)

Commission: Castles in the Sand by annsquare
Commission: Castles in the Sand
An illustration for a poem titled "Castles" published in Wisdom Crieth Without:…

I try to portray a sense of nostalgia but also fragility by showing how the sand slips away beneath the feet of children unaware. 

Pencil, watercolor 


annsquare's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
Ann is an tireless learner who aspires to become an artist, scholar, leader, neuroscientist and world traveller. She enjoys reading, painting, listening to TED talks, playing badminton and long talks with inspirational friends. Her works are features in multiple publications, including Wisdom Crieth Without (online and print magazine), The Varsity (U of Toronto newspaper and magazine), and The Spectatorial (Victoria College speculative arts blog and magazine).
Thanks for followers of my page.  As you may have noticed, I have been very quiet on DeviantArt and have only updated my portfolio sporadically.  University and personal life are occupying my time completely, but I try to make time for art.  Most of my work lately have been small illustrations for my school newspaper, as well as larger illustrations for Wisdom Crieth Without magazine, which feature some amazing literary and visual arts:

I will try to do a free giveaway event later in the year that's similar to the 50 Poses Challenges, where you give me a few keywords and I produce a quick piece of your character.  

50 Poses Challenge (Closed):new: :new: :new:
School has been ridiculously busy.. I'm very sorry Aya14000, BabySponge178, TehLegendofcool and AnimeOtaku6, but I'm afraid you will need to wait for a while longer for the pictures. Thanks for being patient with me :hug:
Also, I'm planning to use 6 of the sketches for my AP Drawing Portfolio, with characters by: ElPerdedor, SketchesInMinutes, SkiM-ART, Mike16r, ppgrainbow and MiyuKyuu. Please send me a message if you are NOT OK with me using these pictures. It's for schoolwork so the only people who are seeing it are the AP markers ;P
You can find your picture in this Photobucket folder:
I also replied to a few people whose pose reference file either isn't appropriate (eg. photography, other artist's painting, etc.), has a broken link, or that needs to be changed to another pose. Please check your inbox or

Some ideas I'm considering:

Color palettes
Focus on body forms (hands, feet, head angle...)
Human model reference

As this will be partially a practice of anatomy, I'd probably lean towards more realism style.  This time, I'll also be adding colors with watercolor and/or color pencils.

Love to hear your suggestions!

Hi Ann, I recently purchased some postcards with a fundraiser you did, I just wanted to let you know that you should change your web address before you run any more print editions as there is a spelling error in your web page! Love the post cards, keep up the great work!

Thank you for the support!  Was this the Autism fundraiser in Shenzhen?  I actually just gave a friend permission to print my work, so maybe she made a typo somewhere; but thanks for pointing it out!
