Lord Ganesha Colored Pencil Artwork

lord-ganesha-colored-pencil-sketch-illustration-iconI made this abstract sketch in the first year of college and wanted to share it on the Wall for quite some time…
Ganesha (Sanskrit: गणेश, Gaṇeśa), also known as Ganapati and Vinayaka, is the Hindu deity of wisdom and the remover of all obstacles. Here is my sketch.

“The Tree of Life” Colored Pencil Artwork

the-tree-of-life-illustration-icon“The Tree of Life” is a colored pencil art I created in my 1st year at college (in 2014). It was inspired by a very similar artwork of another artist, which I saw while browsing on DeviantArt.

To me, the concept appears to be very much alike life itself – a burst of colors perpetually swirling and dispersing into everything. 🙂

Some Posters of BBC Sherlock Quotes

I have made some cool posters of Sherlock quotes by editing my BBC Sherlock artwork which I posted recently.

Clever quotations are one of the things that I find best about the Sherlock series, so I thought why not share some of them?

Sherlock TV Series Artwork

Here comes a pencil color artwork of “Sherlock” (the BBC TV series). I completed this one a while ago and it portrays our very beloved master of deduction, the world’s only “consulting detective”, Sherlock Holmes.

I just love the series and I believe Benedict Cumberbatch has played the character really well! Waiting to see some more of Sherlock’s brilliance in Season 4. 🙂

(Also see: Some posters of BBC Sherlock quotes, which I created by editing this drawing on my PC.)

Abstract Lord Ganesha Painting

I have made a new watercolor painting – Abstract Lord Ganesha. The artwork features the Hindu deity of good fortune and success, Lord Ganesha, also known as Ganapati.

With the abstract Ganesha design in focus, it also has a lot of color splashes and some floral design made with a sketch pen.

“Ganesha (Sanskrit: गणेश, Gaṇeśa), also known as Ganapati and Vinayaka, is one of the best-known and most worshipped deities in the Hindu pantheon.
Although he is known by many attributes, Ganesha’s elephant head makes him easy to identify. Ganesha is widely revered as the remover of obstacles, the patron of arts and sciences and the deva of intellect and wisdom.”

2 Colored Pencil Artworks – “The Lion” and “The Phoenix”

I was going through some old drawings of mine and found these two illustrations I made a year ago – “The Lion” and “The Phoenix”. Both artworks are made entirely with color pencils and are a vibrant mix of colors with some abstract creativity.

The Lion is an amalgamation of bright, vivid designs resulting in a lion’s head gleaming with pride. The Phoenix illustration has an equally vivacious phoenix flapping its magnificent wings. One is the king of land and the other the prince of skies! Here are the artworks:

Design Process: How I Made the Abstract Lord Krishna Painting

I recently posted here my new painting, the Abstract Lord Krishna. I am glad that it is being liked by lots! Now I am sharing the design process of the artwork…

Being a rather simple design, it did not take much time – it was completed in a span two days, collectively an effort of about 8 hours. But maintaining crispness of the lines and not losing the overall juice of the theme was bit challenging. As I have previously mentioned, I was actually inspired to draw it from a picture of the deity which made impressive use of line strokes to draw Lord Krishna (image attached in this post).

The final painting looks like this:

Abstract Lord Krishna Painting

I recently created an abstract Lord Krishna painting in watercolor. With the graceful Hindu deity playing flute at the center, a glowing sky-ish background completes the illustration.

This one is inspired by a very beautiful line art of Lord Krishna I saw, which is also given below. I was instigated by the design and immediately decided to work upon it as a painting.

“Krishna (Sanskrit: कृष्ण) is considered the supreme deity, worshipped across many traditions of Hinduism in a variety of different perspectives. He is recognized as the eighth incarnation (avatar) of Lord Vishnu, and one and the same as Lord Vishnu one of the trimurti and as the supreme god in his own right.”

“Abstract Elephant” Illustration Set

My new artwork, the Abstract Elephant illustration is now ready! It has a bright and colorful subject, i.e. the abstract elephant design, with a plain and simple background. The illustration is made with watercolors and a little dash of color pencils.

(Also see my previous post, Working on the “Abstract Elephant” Illustration – Some Sketches, where I talked about this piece while it was in the making, along with sharing the initial Abstract Elephant sketches.)

So here’s yet another colorful animal illustration from me.

Working on the “Abstract Elephant” Illustration – Some Sketches

I am currently working on a new illustration, the “Abstract Elephant”, and its underlying sketch is presented here in this post.

The core concept is an abstract elephant head with minimal, but beautiful design elements and a rather plain background (unlike most of my works, I admit)… Still, the subject looks quite vivid and versatile. As the elephant’s sketch is now ready, I have prepared the pencil-work to show on the blog!

I am using mainly watercolors for painting the Abstract Elephant, and some color pencils for touch-up.
