Life & Partner

Life is really important and so is the partner one chooses to spend the entire life with. Life is about sharing and caring. To me life does not make sense if we do not share and care. Life partner or soul mate is the person to whom one opens up his/her heart fully. And that is when the power of sharing and caring grows more and more. That is why soul mate holds a very important place and role in life.

On 14th of August I got engaged to a sweet caring girl who is my best friend, my inspiration and my heart, Ami :)

Second Master Copy

This is one more master copy assignment, I don't have any details of the master artist but the work was really amazing. I am really happy with my final output in this assignment. I guess I am better with white charcoal on black paper than my skills with black on gray paper. This is actually huge, 36"x58". we did master copy on this big size to study all the details easily. I had to stick the paper to the wall to work on it. Photo quality is not good, there is a reflection on the bottom right corner :sigh:

Self portrait 1

Not completely happy with it, but still I was happy that I could get the likeliness. I chose a little odd pose. But since this was my first time drawing from mirror, I made some silly measuring mistakes. That's why some features look skewed.

Plater Cast Rendering

Third life drawing assignment, where we had to copy the plaster cast model to study head. I could not get the likeliness of the model really well, but still I enjoyed the rendering. His hair was a really painful task though. I also found that using white & black charcoal over a gray paper works really well and gives a wide range of values and possibilities for rendering.

First Drapery Study

First assignment of life drawing class. And I was really intimidated initially since I had never worked on drapery before and this was the first fine rendering project of the class. Anyway I realize that if I was less afraid of failing I could have done better.
