After more than four months of hiatus, I have at last returned to my usual kind of drawing. Admittedly, it was kind of weird holding the pencil after such a long time, but then here it is. Circumstances forced me to do the sketch at the dead of night, so that was a very remarkable experience too.
Every photograph has its own kind of challenge. For me, hair would always remain the last frontier. I did my best, and coming back after so many months wasn’t easy. I took more time than necessary (two nights would be it), fumbling at different grades of pencil. But I am pretty pleased with how it came out. Now that I am back at last, there will be more in the anvil soon…..though I remember saying this before.
I obviously used a photo as a model, which came from my college mate Vysakh Karthikeyan’s amazing collection from our Tathva nites. I’ll put up a link to his gallery (I think he has a microblog) when I come across one (and not to his facebook profile mind).
Oh, the girl in the sketch is Linda, by the way, from my college club.
