I recently made a road trip to Wolfcreek, Colorado. We skied for a day, took pictures and had fun. After coming back I realized there wasnt a single pic which actually showed us skiing. So this toon is for all of us who skied. I am the ‘speed-racer’ leading the pack…

I have shown the sketch in two parts, one before and after shading. I used 3B and 4B pencils here.

Longhorn is the mascot of University of Texas, Austin. So this is representing Austin. With UT meeting Alabama for the BCS championship, am I predicting the result here… lets c.  This is the last of the Texas category but also the start of my next theme, Elements of Nature. This sketch representing Land.

Dallas , among other things is famous for its football team, Cowboys and its cheer leaders. So a couple of cowboys to represent Dallas.

Moving on to the technical aspect,In a good action figure drawing, it should evident what has happened and /or what is about to happen.If the point in the action which you choose to depict epitomizes the entire maneover your drawing will be perceived and understood as moving figure, says Ron Tiner.

This time, I just happened to stumble upon another theme – TEXAS . The very mention of the name texas, people relate it to the land of cowboys. True but that aint gonna be the first sketch. For the uninitiated, Austin, Dallas and Houston are the three major cities in Texas. I intend to draw something that relates with each city. I am a U of H alumni, so this one is representing Houston and University of Houston. Cougar, a mountain lion, is the mascot of U of H. I have tried to portray it here.

For the first time, I completed a sketch without erasing and in a single sitting, watching ‘pasanga’ side by side. I have used 4H, H and 4B pencils here.

In sketching an adult figure, proportion of the body is of prime importance says Pogany. In actuality, the height of a human ia about seven and half heads high. But when drawing, it is made to about 8 heads high so that it looks more longer legged and more ideal.

I have used 2B pencil for sketching and shading.
