I believe that in every person lies an artist. For me, art is just the presentation of one's inner self; expression of one's thoughts and feelings. Thus, he who can express how he or she feels, is an artist.

So, basically, I am an artist. To be specific, I am sometimes a painter, sometimes a writer, illustrator, and what not!

Drawing has always helped me express myself. I draw (actually doodle) almost all the time. Maybe it doesn't look too good, but it helps.

AllAboutDrawings is where I found ideas and inspirations when I really started to try to take one step further and take my doodles seriously. And now, after about one and half a years, my drawings don't look like a toddler's drawings.

I don't have a good self portrait yet (I mean they are not that good yet), but I am uploading a different picture for now, be aware!, this doesn't portray me!

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Probal, I am kinda disappointed, I was hoping to meet you! So, did you draw this? If you did, it is very good, I like it.

This submission can't go in "Meet The Artist" as it has to be a photo of you or a self portrait. However, I hope you don't mind, this is too good to go to waste and it can be displayed under "Pencil Drawings".

You have certainly progressed with your art and you must be very pleased with it.

The Black Hawk Down

Black Hawk Down Drawing

Black Hawk Down Drawing

Hey AAD friends!

It is 16 Dec morning(actually dawn 3:30 am) here in Bangladesh. It is our National Victory Day here. On this day, back in 1971, our country gained victory over invading Pakistan (that doesn't mean we are in war now!)

I have been trying to draw 'something' again, last night. As I remembered one of Kerry's articles about drawing from colored pictures, I chose a picture from my favorite movie the Black Hawk Down; turned it into grayscale and tried to copy it.

This is what I could come up with. The face doesn't match with the real picture, but you can at least figure out a soldier looking very anxious!

Thanks; and don't just praise, people! Come and criticize! Give ideas about how I can improve! (for myself, I think, I need to try Kerry's observation and up-side down practice, don't I ?)

(This is awfully big today!)

**Note from Kerry:
Probal, this is fantastic! You are improving by leaps and bounds. The fact that you are trying out all the drawing exercises means you can only get better. And, here is the proof. I am impressed!

Also, the bigger the story, the better it is! I love big stories!

Did you use colored paper? What medium is this? I'm interested to know.

The Torture Cell

This drawing, although not much of a skillful art, I always feel proud to show it because I used a lot of thought behind this and wasted two pencils!

Firstly it was a figure drawing, but i did not like it much. Then, after a few weeks, I saw some of Picasso's great works and tried to produce a cubism. This is my first cubism attempt, i am still not sure if it could be accepted as one or not!

I used HB pencils most! I slit apart two pencils vertically (how brutal!) and that's how i was able to draw the black background easily.

Take care then! Have fun!

(hey, guys, can you propose a better name for this? I just came up with the name above right now... but there is something missing...!)

Oh... and you can see the strip of my handycam there!

***Note from Kerry:
Good job Probal. Thanks for sharing the drawing's interesting background story. I think your title is quite appropriate.

I drew this about a year ago. I had just learned to draw the nose (just the left part of the pic) then. Usually I practice a lot after I learn anything "easy"! After drawing this nose, I felt so boring of the unfinished nose and added the right part of the picture.

It feels good to share pictures with you guys. Leave some comments so I can improve my drawings.


**Note from Admin:
What a clever drawing. It's good that you let your imagination take over once you apply pencil to paper.

Well, this is not a sketch but I tested this to check what I can do with my usual abstract arts. This is a sketch which I also posted at AAD before.

I used adobe illustrator and this black and white picture turned into this! I hope this is acceptable as art!

I really want to know what people think about it!

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Probal, it's ok to have some digital work on here but I have to be careful it doesn't take over. Drawings are much more personal.

If anyone would like to compare, this is the original that Probal sent in:
http://www.allaboutdrawings.com/abstract-art-2.html

I've compared the 2 and I can see why you are excited about it, Probal. It certainly brings your drawing alive. You can get great ideas from this program for coloring your own work. Well done!

The biggest story behind this drawing is that it is my largest drawing yet.It is on a 3"*4" (apprx.) art paper. I hung it behind my bedroom door. Moreover, its one of my latest drawings.

I tried to illustrate some people, who are talking to each other.Though i am not sure if the colors look good or bad, but i tried to use a lot of bright and dark colors because life has both happiness and sorrow.

I hope you like it.

I would be grateful if you analyze and criticize the drawing, that is how i shall be able to improve myself... after all, i am learning by myself!

***Note from Kerry:
I think it's good Probal. Abstract can be many things to many people and its beauty lies in each interpretation. Just as my Aunt told me, Art comes from within and can't truly be criticized.

All About Drawings has really opened this side of my character. I have gone through some stages that AAD helped me through.

At first, I just liked paintings and drawings.

Then I used to draw small pictures in small notebooks which weren't really nice and I didn't show those to anyone.

I had a fascination for abstract. Examples are some drawings using ball point pen, almost like this one in the picture (without color).

Later, I slowly started to sketch some of kerry's drawings...

Then I came up with sketches of many things.

Soon I found a rhythm and then I started drawing more and developed my style of drawing.

Now I am considerably good at sketch and impression.

Here is a painting or sketch, that I like a lot. I call it "Hope".

***Note from Kerry:
Hello Probal! It's great to hear from you again!

It sounds like you've been very busy with your art - good on you for experimenting until you discovered your likes and dislikes. It makes me very happy to see someone grow, the way you have done. Thank you for getting back in touch.

Your drawing is interesting, it's making me ponder why you chose to name it "Hope." Any clues? My first guess is the sun's rays being revealed to feed energy in all directions. I'll also guess that I'm completely on a different track to you!

If you post a comment, everyone can have an interesting discussion about it. That would be good fun.

Thanks Probal!

ND4SPD undercover vinyl

I guess I was in a "hyper" mode that evening (does not mean I was drunk or something!) I was happy that our exams had finished. As I was playing the game, I browsed through the vinyls and found two which I liked and tried to copy. I added some differences though, but the basic picture is the same.

I think art has two basic building blocks. One is skill and the other is creativity. And when we use our drawing skills to express our creativity, art is born! (am I beginning to turn into a philosopher???)

Anyways, be happy! :-)

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Probal! Art does change us - I think it makes us look at the world differently. I like your drawing, good job!

Hey everyone!

This is a type of drawing that I especially like to work on. I am always doodling on papers with my ball point pen. One day, I finished this section of art. I don't know what it is called; I've never even seen anybody drawing like this.

This is done with a black ball point pen. First, I drew the borders of the main subject, I filled them in and then drew some other additional 'ornaments'.

The most interesting part is, you can always "hide" a mistake with new designs (Ha Ha Ha!!!).

Do leave some comments because it'll improve my abilities.

Note from Admin:

This is so interesting, Probal. I can makes lots of images out of your picture. I would call this abstract art. You are very creative, keep up the good work!

This is a picture of... well, you can see it. I see that I have something with the ball point pens because most of the times that I am doodling, something comes out. A lot of time and ink is wasted, though (ha ha!).

**Note from Kerry:

No, your time is certainly not wasted, Probal. Your creative side is very busy, you start with nothing and end up with something interesting. This is so good.

Here is another drawing done with a ball point pen. I didn't think to draw something specifically; I just played with the pen and something came out!

From Admin:

Hmm, is that Probal's mask I see near the center? This reminds me of Inca Art. Very good.
