Old Sketch 12: Wardina Safiyyah

Wardina Safiyyah is a Malaysian's Popular Celebrity who started the new Islamic style among artists where she refuse to take off her headscarf like other celebrities even for a shampoo tv commercials. Do you want to know how glamor she is with headscarf? When you walk by headscarves shops around Kuala Lumpur or everywhere in Malaysia, you can see headscarves named by her name. They call it "Tudung Wardina" which means "Wardina's Headscarf". She have also started a new style of wearing those headscarves and they call it Wardina's Headscarf Fashion.

This sketch is done with pencil on paper. I didn't like it much because I noticed there is something wrong with the proportion of the nose and face . Anyway, if you want to know more about her, you can check out Wardina Safiyyah's Friendster Pages for news about her.

Old Sketch 11: Skinhead II

Being a Skinhead in the early 1994 till the end of 2001 here in Malaysia have influenced my lifestyle with the Skinhead culture and ideology. Skinheads was named for their shaven or close-cropped heads. They are a working-class subculture that originated in the United Kingdom in the late 1960s. This subculture then spread to other parts of the world.

Back to the beginning, the first skinheads were greatly influenced by West Indian rude boys and British mods, in terms of fashion, music and lifestyle. Originally, the skinhead subculture was primarily based on those elements, not politics or race. Since then, however, skinhead aligned themselves with attitudes toward race and politics. The political spectrum within the skinhead scene ranges from the far right to the far left, although many skinheads remain apolitical. Fashion-wise, skinheads range from a clean-cut 1960s mod-influenced style to less-strict punk- and hardcore-influenced styles.
