Saint Meera

by Salil
(Pune, INDIA)


After a drawing of Lord Krishna, I thought of drawing Saint Meera, an ardent devotee of Lord Krishna.

It took me 3 hrs to complete this picture. Drew this picture with a pencil and shaded it with a black ball pen.

I was inspired to restart drawing after browsing through this website. This is my 13th drawing. A drawing of Krishna, perhaps the most beloved god in India.

Only a black ballpen was used.

Thanks,
Salil.


***Note from Kerry:
Hello Salil,
I think your drawing is absolutely beautiful and I am in awe that it is done with pen! Good work! Please frame this drawing.

It makes me really happy to hear that this website was instrumental in putting a pen back into your hand, what a tremendous compliment, thank you Salil.

Shivaji Maharaj

by Salil
(Pune India)


The legendary Maratha warrior who fought almost a lone battle against the mighty Moghul empire. A classic case of David against Goliath. He was not only an excellent war strategist but also a man of the highest principles.

Some details regarding the drawing.

This drawing took me almost a month to complete though I worked about one-one and a half hours each day on it.

The drawing was done in pencil which was a normal HB (I think) pencil.

The shading was done completely with a black ballpen. As it was a black ballpen I couldn't use a blending stump (or whatever it's called).

I attempted this drawing after a long break so I started with the simplest parts (for shading) first such as the beard and moustache. I kept the face part for shading the last.


Thanks,
Salil


***Note from Kerry:
Gee Salil, this is perfectly done, flawless even! Your artistry impresses me, thank you for sharing it. It's mind-boggling that all the shading was done in pen, wow, that takes some talent.

Thank you for the facts too, I really enjoy learning all about the character of your drawing subject.

When i was going through my old drawing books, i saw a picture of this beautiful lady...

The moment i saw her i was tempted to draw her... though my picture is not that perfect, i tried my level best.....is it looking good?....or is there any correction? how could i improve my drawing style, mam?

***Note from Kerry:
Nithya, you could probably teach me a lot about drawing, so I am not the person to ask. It's my pleasure just to see your lovely drawings. As usual, I think you've done a good job.

Sketching is an absolutely refreshing and spiritual experience ...isn't it amazing that a few lines can so beautifully transform a blank sheet?!!
