Finally, I am doing something what I have been looking to do after long time.
Somehow everytime I wanted to do it, there would be a slackening at my
end. But, then I decided that it was time I do it.
Well, this is got to do with my hobby of SKETCHING. I have always liked to
sketch throughout my life. Infact, I have participated in number of
competitions and won quite a few prices during my school days. Thought of
publish a few of them on my blog –
(1) BRIDGE SCENERY
This sketch is that of a scenery of a sunset by the sea seen from a bridge.
This one happens to be special coz its a CHARCOAL sketching. And I found
that using charcoal on special drawing sheet gives good effects. This one
was done I guess 4-5 months back (June’08)
(2) CA MOUNTAIN RANGES
This sketch is a mountain-range that I had seen while driving to Santa Cruz
from San Jose. Again, this also was done 4-5 months back. I hope you are
able to make out the gradients in the mountains. This was during my initial
visit to US.
(3) SAINTS WITH MAGICAL LIQUID
This one is one of my favorites that did a couple of yrs back probably when I
started working or something. But, then this one was done completely in
6B pencil and it came out quite good 🙂
(4) JUST NATURAL
Well, the sketch was done while I was just sitting at my home with a blue-ball
pen. But then it came out quite good, may be the power of Reynold Pen Ink.
But, its a very sweet pic that I really love.
(5) VILLAGE SCENE
I saw this pic in the newspaper where they were telling about the way village
are getting changed. Thought I should sketch the scene with a BLACK BALL
PEN. Turned out that it would be a good option as I was still able to get the
shades. I was quite happy to see the way branches of the tree came out 🙂
(6) BUTTERFLY EFFECTS
One of my favorite scenes to paint is the still life. Its not that it then becomes
easier to sketch. Sometimes when things are still, they look quite nice. I did
imagine a Butterfly as well in the still pic 🙂
(7) OH ! THE KING
Wonder if there can be any other animal that can be called a king other than
the LION. The animal is so majestic and awesome to look at. This sketch was
from a real life pic seen on National Geographic using 6B, 4B pencils.
(8) MARKET THOUGHTS
I sketched this sometime back in my previous job, an office scene, not sure
from where I found it. But, decided to sketch it. The present economic
conditions is very much like the graph in the background 🙂
(9) GARFIELD – DIFFERENT MOODS
This cartoon sure is a favorite of many kids and elders as well. Thought
capturing a few moods of Garfield. This one I did recently during my recent
visit to Chennai for Diwali’08. Almost forgot, this sketch was done using a
Faber Caster black pen and it on the pen that it was a Permanent Marker 🙂
(10) MOSQUITO EFFECTS
How did like the title ? Another sketch that i did in a stretch after finishing the
Garfield sketch. It depicts an irate person who is trying to hit the mosquito
that just whizzzzz past him 🙂
Well, there are quite a few I did like to post. Will keep doing that in the
coming days. But, then i would really appreciate your comments to these.
You can rate all of them, tell how you felt/any thoughts.
