My Sketch


This is my first sketch on a tablet pc. I used a photograph of Ladakh that I saw in a magazine as my inspiration. I know I am not very good at sketching, but sketching makes me happy. Your comments are welcome so that I can improve. Arvindh (my sketching guru), looking forward especially for your comments.

I don't believe that this is your first sketching.

But if it is, then you don't have to turn back.

It is beautiful!!

@Immigrant - Thanks. Even I thought I can't draw till a few months ago.

@Starry Nights - Thanks :)

@Jac - Thanks. This is my first sketch on a tablet PC. But I started sketching on paper, a few months ago.

On a tablet PC?? Wow! Which software did you use?

The sketch is just superb! I especially like the way you have shown the snow and the shadows of the trees.
The interesting thing I notice is that this sketch does look like the ones you did on paper! HOw did you master the medium like this (BTW, I havent tried tablet PC)?
I think that you should post your sketch with the horse, man and tree.
Please continue to post your drawings in this blog.

Yup, the sketch is beautiful, and I too wonder how you got the different shades on a Tablet PC. Makes me wanna get back to sketching :).

@Jo - Thanks. Its a software called Alias Sketchbook. Real cool.

@Arvindh - Thanks a ton. U know that whatever little sketching I do is b'cos of u. :) LOL...I have not mastered the medium...just started working on it y'day. But the software is cool, its just like working with pencil and paper with the added advantage that I can undo what I don't like. I'll try to post the sketch u suggested and others.

@Prateek - Thanks. Hope to see ur sketches soon.

Nice sketch. I have great respect for people who can sketch, draw, paint, sing, play a music instrument and so on. You have a good guru and as he has said it is superb. Moreover, if it makes you happy, that what more you want as an incentive. Happy sketching...

The first sketch looks good, try it out on paper instead of PC - not any PC drawling tool has the flexibility of drawing with a pencil on a paper. Also you will get the full credit too :-)
