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!!

The Fireboy!

This is my 7 year old son – 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 …

3

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

4

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

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