My Second Sketch – Comrade Shivakar

This week seemed to pass in a “Frenzy of Flights”.  Everyone’s leaving for US. And for the rest of us (or at least for me)
No Sleep.
No Rest.
Riding from the Sunrise to the Sunset.
Why you ask me? These fellows (I mean my friends of course who left for the US of A) always book a flight when even the ghosts are hibernating – Either its a flight at 1.00 AM or its a Flight at 4.00 AM.
Ajay, Shivakar, Maddy, Paddy and Deva. (Yashwanth – CSE leaves tomorrow – its his today).
Everyone from ECEz almost vanished. I Hope they are doing fine.

Remember My Futile Attempt at Sketching. Well, I did the same for Shivakar. Sketched it for around 3 hours. Took a lot less time to do this one. I just kept scratching the pencil over paper. I think the picture looks more like Kranthi than Shivakar. Oh, well. I used a HB pencil and an A4 sheet for this one.

But, I think I am getting the hang of it. I had a problem creating lighter textures on paper. Now I know the meaning of all those HB, 1B, 2B, 3B…. numbered pencil’s. The pencils number indicates the darkness of the shade. My bro gave me box of those (still have to learn how to use’em). I think I will start a topic on Drawing lessons and post whatever I learn on drawing. What an Idea, Sirjee (Maybe I’ll start with the Structure of the Human Body – from the downloaded videos, all thanks to _).

I wanted to post this a lot earlier. But I didn’t for a reason I still haven’t found out :).  I presented Shivakar with his own Picture – I wonder if he recognized himself (and people, enough with the drawer thingy ). I don’t think I will ever get all the features of the face right. I won’t bother you people (or embarrass Shivakar) by going into the details of what went wrong with the sketching (things like, the nose is at a wrong angle, the moustache is not staged right, etc… :D ). The last time, the face was ok but the shirt was left out. This time, the shirt came out fine, but the face is not upto the mark. I wonder who my next victim will be.

And Here is the Photoshopped Tinted/Gradiated/Texturiezed Version.

Constructive Criticism is appreciated. Unconstructed too is accepted ;)
Lal Salaam Everyone. I will be waiting for your advice on how to improve my un’amazing’ sketching abilities. And meanwhile could you suggest me some topics for the next post?

P.S.: Watched Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in I-Max (Ya, the one with the Explosive Intro in 3D thing). Having read all the books (Hated the last one – literally), I was a little too late to catch up with the movie. But I daresay I didn’t like it. At all. But there were some good memories related with this one I won’t ever forget). I saw it on the day Maddy left :)

P.P.S.: Also Heard Magadheera was good. Plz note that I removed the word ‘Futile’ from the title. I don’t think the second one was that futile. What do you say? And I hope Shivakar doesn’t mind for using him as a test-subject for my sketching.
