Hi Everyone, As you may have noticed from my homepage I am currently working on rebuilding my website to make it easier to navigate. My goals are to get more content out at a faster pace.
I’ll be updating my contact form, commission info, and my galleries first and continue building from there. Hope to see you all back here soon! in the meantime, check out some of my Latest Artwork Samantha Lim
I just wanted to say that I am very excited to re-visit the world of art, my world. It has been a few years since I have been working on anything at all and that’s been rough. It’s 2022 and now that I am returning to my creative passion I am looking to focus on a few different things.
While I am always looking to improve my art skills and develop my own style I also want to look more at what my art is about and give it more meaning. For me, the artwork is about creating a connection between reality and imagination. Taking a thought and mixing it with reality to create and display the story of emotion. I want my artwork to feel like the soft drizzle of rain on your skin during a warm summer’s day. Calming, soothing, and pleasantly releasing the smell of the beautiful flowers nearby. Or to bring the feeling of the wind hitting your face the first time you get on a rollercoaster. The tossing and turning of motion mixed with fear, joy, and excitement.
I’d also love to focus more on creating more written content about my artwork. I’ve never been a fan of writing or telling people what I think they should feel from my pictures, but, I’ve noticed more and more people asking me why I drew something, or what I’m trying to convey with my artwork. Even though I draw mostly characters, they all have emotions and feeling to them. hopefully, I’ll be able to get this message across through the image and also give you an idea of how I wanted you to connect with it.
The last thing I want to focus more on is creating a background. A lot of the time I do commission work, which I love. Many times these artworks are without backgrounds (ie: just a character) but I am hoping to improve my skill in drawing more scenes and adding a bit more pop to images without backgrounds by adding in simple ones (like basic colours, sketches, or shading).
So these are 3 things I would currently like to focus on moving forward. Thank you for taking the time to read and hopefully you found some inspiration for yourself in my work.

If this was already unlucky with the
Flooding that destroyed laminate flooring and ARTWORK! Omg!
And the frequent power outs for the first time in 10 years
But someone decided to break into our house the other day.
No, no nothing got stolen. I was home! It was not a good feeling at all.
At first I thought my brother had fallen in the shower and woke me up but no, 2 more loud bangs and I yelled for him and ran to the door. My dad got there first and the guy bolted from the house
My brother ran outside with a hammer chasing the man while hoping to get a look at him. He chased him for a few blocks and then lost him as he wasn’t going to run through bushes without shoes (it was also raining).
So the door…
Now dented, frame broken and fence knocked over needs repair. Great.
Not to mention time to fix it. So much for doing anything planned, so much for sleeping in or going to bed early.
Also… I don’t really know how or enjoy fixing these kinds of things, but no choice. We need a door. *sigh
Thankfully my dad is good with figuring this kind of thing out. My brother is ok with it and so am I, but nobody wants to…
I hope its not expensive to repair and shit… Stores aren’t open right now.
Dad is trying to get the door to semi close and my bro it trying to tell the police where the guy went / describe the guy.
I feel… Sad, frustrated, pissed off…
I mean… Why? Its supposed to be the start of a new year and then this. Man I just… I dont know.
What an asshole…
I almost never blog things but you know? Sometimes its nice to get it out. I mean, I would probably write this in a diary if I didn’t have this. It would the one and only entry lmao. I still have so many diaries from my childhood that are new. People thought I wanted one but I hated writing. I still dont really like it, I prefer to draw if you didnt know :p
Anyways this has nothing to do with the break in anymore. I should probably start looking up some kind of how to and check out prices for whatever we need to repair. * sigh, again sigh.
I hope they catch him . . .
Hello and thank you for particularizing in crit night!
Crit night is a small event held here on www.sammacha.com’s art blog. Its a event where artist help artists by submitting both an image for critique and a critique for a randomly assigned artist. This allows for everyone to receive input from someone different. It also provide and opportunity for each artist to look at a style they may not be familiar with and offer some advice or opinions while learning themselves as well.
This time around we had a few less participants (5) due to the holiday’s but there is no lack of helpful tips from each of our artists.
If you are an artist or know and artist that may be interested please pass on the link with all the info
