Day 65... XQ's 1st Appearance

This was done in yr 2000, when i was in poly year 1.
It was done with carvings on a piece of rubber (i forgot the name of this type of art), then paint black ink on the rubber and transfer it to rice paper.... the process is very tedious and very difficult to get a good piece. How it works is u carve on one side of the rubber piece, when u paint the ink over the carved parts will not get the ink, that's how the white park come about, the uncarved parts will be the black. Getting ink onto the rubber is fairly easy...the hard part is getting it'printed' onto rice paper...most of us use the big scoop that is used to scoop rice, and rub and rub onto the paper, till the black part is fully stained with ink, cause if not done properly, there's be white dots all over...
This is a little story that i thought of for XQ, so he's creacted in yr 2000 when this project started, can see that the features is changed, last time XQ got wing, taller, less cuter...feelers also different direction now. So just look at the pics, i'll write the story at the end of the post.

Understood the story?
The story is about XQ, a boxer, had a final match in the ring, and he thought of his mum who jus passed away, got distracted and gave his opponent a chance to give him a final blow, therefore lost the match. It's a sad ending...
