Tanjore Big Temple

May 31, 2010 6 comments


I wanted to try something different this time. Hence Architecture.  I was browsing the net in search of good temple pics to draw. All that I had in mind was to do something simple to get a feel of it and then maybe at a later point of time do a detailed sketch. To test waters, I thought this pic was the right choice. The idea of superimposing Brihadeeswarar temple on an engraved stone  from the same temple was superb. Only while doing this did I realize the importance of paper texture,  to give the feel of stone. I have did what is possible within my limitations.

Here is a neat pic on the evolution of tamil script. Check this out to find which century did the letters found on the sketch above belong to..:)

Skiing

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.

This is representing the rest of texas, which is for the most part dry and barren.

More charcoal…

Just when i thought things were going gud between me and my pencil, little did i realise what happened. The fingers of the hanging person didnt come out that gud, i tried to correct it and the result —the mess was more messier!!! That didnt stop me from posting it nonetheless:P

Few other titles that crossed my mind… kai kodukum kai, udavum karangal….
