Maya

October 9, 2011 7 comments

When I searched on the word “Maya”, I was really surprised that it was probably one word which has multiple meanings across different places and religions. According to Hindu mythology, it is another name of goddess Lakshmi and it means “illusion”. It is the failure of perceiving things the way they are and seeing them superficially thereby not getting a picture in totality. I think the process of understanding the difference between them is enlightenment. The idea of this sketch is that the external beauty is what draws ones quick attention but its only an illusion, subject to change with time.

I have been dealing with serious themes and decided to go for a quickie this time. Here’s a cartoonistic artist at work!!

I used 2B pencil for this sketch.

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.
