Cattle Fair - Rajasthan

Murali Alagar, my friend from CWA (Chennai Weekend Artist) visited Rajasthan as part of his photoshoot and has clicked wonderful shots, I admire the angle and view he captures for any shot he takes, especially when he shoots any landscape. My earlier post of Shiv Linga (Lepakshi) was also inspired from one of his photos. He keeps impressing others by his unique clicks and this cattle fair is one in them. After seeing this, I wanted to do a pencil sketch of this angle and guess have drawn it to some extent. This is the first time am trying to do landscape and hope it came out well, here it is for your comments. Used 2B, 5B and 8B for this pencil sketch.

Alexander and Bucephalus

For a long time I have been thinking of portraiting epic character, that too Alexander the great and am crazy on his black beauty, Bucephalus.

The moment I searched for Alexander, wikipedia had a wonderful portrait of Alexander tamming his Bucephalus, got attracted towards the drawing I tried to depict it in my style and here it is for your critics. I used 5B and 8B for the shades.

"Rani Mangamma" in my style :)

Few days back while just giving Like to my favorites, happened to see a post of oil painting on canvas of Rani Mangamma on her ferocious horse, unfortunately I downloaded that drawing but didnt notice who posted that and the artist name :( remember him saying it was sold for 1.5 laks, and he could not afford, so just took a shot and left that place.

Today was another fine relaxing sunday, so happened to portrait that drawing in my style and hope it came out well. Used 5B, 8B, 2B in all combinations to finish this drawing. Finally finished it and posting for your critics.

Shiv Temple, Monolithic Nandi - Lepakshi

After a long gap of hectic work schedule..... I got time to draw, so planned to draw Lord Shiva and was browsing over internet and found this unique shiv lingam sculpture at lepakshi. The moment I saw, got impressed with it and started collecting more information about Lepakshi and came to know there is a monolithic nandi too at the site. Though I didnt visit this place personally, but got into a imagination to bring nandi in front of shiv lingam and started drawing. Actually nandi isnt in front of this statue at lepakshi, its just my imagination.
