Pencilwork

I sincerely feel that I should sketch more. But I don't. Maybe because I never saw any future with my little talent. Or it might be that I was more interested in science and technology. Whatever, though my career as an artist is over, there's no harm in wielding a pencil once in a while.

I'm currently trying to do one, so I thought a little bit of appreciation could help keep my spirits high. I posted my last sketch on orkut. Incidentally the last sketch was done around 6 months back and the one before that was around 4-5 years back, if not more. That definitely means I'm improving!

This one was inspired by Catherine Zeta Jones. All comments and criticisms are more than welcome.

@ Mads: Thanx for the encouragement, but I really lack talent. That's bcoz I lack originality which I think is very important.

But yes, I'll definitely try to do more.

@ Richa: This is no way Catherine Zeta Jones. It's just inspired by her. I mean this could have looked like Zeta Jones had I so wished.

Btw my next work is an exact copy. Perhaps that might do. :D

Perhaps many of us have buried our inborn talents to pursue something else :(


But seriously, I'm trying hard to keep that talent alive. You too never let it die out. :)

This is a masterpiece :)

@ Shwetz:

Maybe ur right :(

Do u also sketch/draw or is it something else?

And thanx for calling a masterpiece, but perhaps that would be too big a compliment.

Since you say a little bit of appreciation could help, I have to let you know. I was blog hopping, and this drawing caught my eye. You very obviously have talent, I know cos Ive tried drawing myself, and couldnt. :)
