Alexander, Porus, Bucephalus - The Climax

Bucephalus should be favorite epic character for everyone of every age. He is the majestic horse Alexander the great rode and won his battles. Poor ending was Bucephalus, died on war land fighting against Porus, Indian King who had war elephants. Bucephalus was firghtened, still he managed to continue fighting. If you want Alexander movie, this one last scene where his majestic black beauty jumps over to the elephant.

For a long time, I had this in my back floor to sketch, finally got time to complete this for this weekend. I did not draw this in detail size, this is A4 size and tried to depict the scene to the extent I can. Please your comments are welcome. Used 3B, 4B to complete this sketch.

Lord Vinayaka - Quick Sketch

This sketch was pretty quick, on a friday night started around 11pm and completed in 1.5hrs. Wanted to start straight away with the darker shades and decided to use only 3B Faber Castell pecil, with very light strokes and then fill up the shades.

Asusual your comments are welcome :)

Lord of Dance - Nataraja

Nataraja - in his unique dancing poses are really amazing and mesmerizing. There are lot of thandavam poses and I believe the most familiar one to me is the Anandha Thandavam. I tried sketching the pose in full front view initially, but there seem to be a lot of sketches in front view, so thought why not I try in a different angle, either from top or side or bottom angle. Finally this angle looked great and gave me a divine gigantic feel, and decided to sketch.

After scanning, wanted to give a final touch and added the black borders, like a cinema-scope effect :), now this is my desktop wallpaper.

Used 4H and 2B for this sketch. Please provide your comments on how to and where to improve my sketching skills.
