Three more sketches

In an attempt to make sketches of all nephews, I added few more.


The above was of Anishk, post which I tried to make one of Addhya..



Which I don’t think that went that well.. so I had to give it another try from scratch.




One more try on sketching–Not good one this time

Gave one more try on sketching. This time nephew.. not good one this time though

The Original picture

not well


The Sketch


One more sketch: This time with fast motion video of process

After the last attempt, I thought to give it one more try and this time thought to make a video of entire sketching but sadly the camera positioning wasn’t proper and rather than the sketch, it was focused over my dirty hairs alone Sad smile

Yet sharing the video and the end results

Here goes the sketch after the video


After some further minor corrections later on


Sketching still alive in me, even if little

It must be a long time when I did sketching of this kind last time. I used to sketch during the low points of life when I felt much low or engrossed in heavy thoughts not letting me think straight.

Sketching usually takes certain level of concentration over the piece of paper leaving all those inner and external thoughts away from your mind momentarily even if not completely. Trust me, even if just few moments, it helps your soul and many a times gives a straight thinking to move ahead with fresh commitment yet again.

Engaging office life, typical limited resource management and then at home kiddo as full time attention, sketching is sure not an easy thing to do. Yesterday night once we were done with dinner and kiddo was showing me that how she can draw some alphabets even if with some help and has started getting settled with school life, the idea to try sketching once again hit me.

Took a broken HB pencil of kiddo, sharpened it, managed to get a small piece of eraser left in the box and started it on the art book gifted to me by my younger bro don’t know which year.


The timestamp of this picture was 2208 hrs, I might have started one or two mins before this point. I always prefer to start with eyes as for me, eyes always been the focus point in any face.


For me, the complicating part in the face always been the nose and luckily this time, I was through that point by 2215 hrs and basic outlines of the face were ready.


Now it was time to make a rough outline and limiting myself to the portion of the picture as per available size of sheet. Time was 2224 hrs.


By 2238 hrs around, the sketch was almost done and it was time to take some photos and cross check if anything additional needs to be done.


Here goes the original base over which I was making the sketch.


And the final product…..
