Tree of Love

My first tryst with the Abstract!

Tree of Love is a sketch where I have attempted drawing human like figures in tree shapes. Since nature has bestowed trees with the widest variety of abstract shapes, I thought of using these to create this piece of art.

I did this in GIMP using my Wacom Intuos 4 tablet. Total drawing time was close to 1 hour 15 mins, though I had planned this in an ‘important’ work meeting in the morning!!

Killer from the Future

This is my tribute to that relentless (and remorseless) killer from the future, The Terminator.

Done freehand in GIMP, drawing time 1 hours approx.

Comic – Science Is Always Right

I had written this 4 page comic story, ‘Science is Always Right’, for the Kolkata based Kindle Magazine. I was requested to write a 4 page graphic story related to the topic ‘The End of The World in 2012’.

This did not get published due to some last minute logistic issues, but here it is:


The Bird Rider

She is the member of the bird riding clans of a rocky planet. These women are fierce warriors, with extremely accurate aims. You don’t want to mess up with them!

This sketch was the result of 1 hour of free time after a full busy day of work, work and work.

Merilyn Monroe (Digital Avatar)

This is a ‘digital remake’ of a very old Merilyn Monroe sketch I did on paper once (16-Sep-1997 to be exact). The older one was done using pencil (5B) on paper. This one is done using the Wacom tablet in GIMP software (and without using a grid).


The Fireboy!

This is my 7 year old son – Dhruv


This is Fireboy Dhruv

You Don’t Mess With The Fireboy

I did this using the GIMP software. Following are the steps.

First I removed the background and added some ‘electric’ hues to the pants.


Then I added some fire to the hands.


Added some shades to the face …


Added some highlights on the face and clothes. These highlights are formed due to the fire light.


Added an ‘X’ on the chest for that superhero look.


And added the background, some final touches and we are done.
