Quality time!

Here is an illustration of a little boy along with his best friend at the seashore enjoying the cool breeze and watching the birds fly by. Sometimes, more than the play, spending time admiring the nature with your friends or loved ones is the best quality time spent. :)

A fashion sketch :)

It's a color pencil work. Can you guess who she is?? If you are a regular reader of the newspaper "The Hindu"- Metroplus, you could get the answer correct. This image is frequently posted whenever they have some gossip about the Bollywood actor Deepika Padukone. Hmm.. so this is Deepika Padukone.:-)

Wedding Brass band!

One day I ran across a picture of few men from some wedding brass band in the daily newspaper. I was fascinated by the color combination of their green uniforms with colorful turbans. I wanted to bring those colors on the paper, but the image in the newspaper was not that clear to be used as a reference picture as these men formed just a corner of the entire picture. I tried my best to develop it to a slightly bigger image just by magnifying those few men and added a few extra turbans at the bottom ;-). I guess I am successful to some extent. I gave their trumpets & other instruments a miss, as my focus was just on their colorful turbans :D. I have used color pencils mostly with little bit of gel pens. :)

Brass bands are a part of Indian traditions. Every important occasions, be it a festival or weddings, they are associated with celebrations. They play various musical instruments like clarinets, trumpets, bass drums, side drums etc on the tunes from the Hindi movies.

Illustration Friday topic "Universe".

I am posting to Illustration Friday Weekly Challenge after a very long time. This week's topic is "Universe". When I was scratching my head for an idea, I was actually staring at the fish bowl at my home and a thought ran in my head that this bowl is the entire universe for these fishes (There are 4 fishes in my fish bowl). Rather than sketching too many fishes, I went ahead with just one. I have used color pencils and some glitter pens. So here is my submission for the topic "Universe".

This is also for the EDM challenge 166 (Draw a fish). Complete EDM Challenge list is here.
