This started as rapid sketches on A3 Sheets with charcoal .. by taking refs from random fashion images from google & some magazines lying around .. later reworked on painter & PS with Dry media 7 Charcoal brushes to make up a pitch for Calendar Design ..
Enjoyed while i played around :)
HAPPY FATHERS DAY to all fathers who are blessed with their own bundles of joy !
Mothers mostly get their due in many ways and are more prominent while fathers are mostly the silent & understated pillars of strength .. Salute to all Fathers .. including mine ! who i shouldn't miss this opportunity to say Thanks for everything & Love ya a lot !
What better day to share some quick sketches of my daughter ! 'Chiya' as she speaks her name in her sweet voice .. There are loads i have been doing while she does all kinds of things around ..
The sketches vary according to the haircut shes gets :P
While conducting a module @ the MIT Design Institute, PUNE for pre-production design & digital methods, it used be great fun to start the day with gesture sketches.. really quick ones.. timed to about 30-40 secs .. here are some of the ones done of the students sketching .. while I have never been one who was into figure sketching but i must say this is really enjoyable & liberating.. it sets the ball rolling for the day ..
I usually try not to lift the pen to capture the gesture in a continuous flow of line .. then later on work on with a marker .. one of the techniques i came across in a book .. it also helps observing the pose very carefully & then draw fast without looking at in again after every stroke ..
