More Devotional sketches

Venkateshwara Swamy
Completed in early 2003
My Best Sketch till date
Every one at home was making fun of me when I started this,as I was doing it on an A4 size paper and the post card had too many details(specially ammavaru on both sides) to clearly show on a small printout paper . The result surprised every one at home including me.I did this for a friend of mine and was even planning to give him the original but gave him a copy as I was not sure if I would be able to draw anything like this one.

Sita-Rama-Lakshmanulato Hanumantudu
Completed in July-06
Its my first sketch on a 18/24 size paper(Thanks to my sister who insisted on buying it-I was not sure if I would be able to draw on a paper of that size).I started this on the request of Indu .She made a copy of this on a 24/36 sheet and arranged it beautifully for pooja.
Sivalingam
Completed around Aug-03

I wanted to try a sketch with colour pencils . My first shoping in US was for colour pencils.I had very high expectations on the pencils but was not aware that they were general colour pencils. Initial look was a disaster, so later tried out others tools like sketch pens, pens and crayons to get this look.
Over confidence- I overlooked my sister's point that the Lingam was not straight while I was doing the outline itself...later it was too late to make any changes.

Ayyappa
Completed around Nov-03
I wanted to show this to my dad badly n dint know that there was a scanner in the school lab...walked a long way to Kinkos to do it.

Parashakthi
Completed in June-06
The facial expressions dint come out well and wanted to show this at Parashakthi temple Detroit(my sister is a volunteer there).I wanted to re do it after reaching my sister's place but unfortunately lost few of my best sketches in the airport and this was one of them.



Shiridi Sai-Satya Sai
Completed around April-04
I am not good at potraits and you can make it out seeing Satya Sai baba. I combined two photographs to sketch this one.
