I have always been inclined to more semi-realistic/ realistic drawings.
I have been drawing all my life. Not with an intention of making it big or for proving that I can draw. I draw for myself and I love doing it. If you have read through my previous posts or if you have read my bio you probably are aware that I am a self-taught artist (that is something I take pride in) and it is probably because I am self-taught that I have always focused on more real looking drawings and sketches than styling it.
Anyway, I think I am fairly good when it comes to capturing light or drawing realistic forms. I might not draw the exact copy of the reference picture (and I am cool with it but I do need to train my observational skills) but it sure looks as real enough.
I am such a show off 😎😉
I am writing this post to show three of my favourite “realistic” digital artworks.

Today I picked up The fault in our Stars and began reading it from a random page. As I was reading, I imagined myself in the characters’ position, as you do. I imagined what it would be like to have a disease which kills you not only physically but also mentally. What it would be like to be a Grenade as Hazel puts it in the book.
It would be heartbreaking and scary, no doubt about it and I am not one of those weirdos who wish to be Hazel Grace because it’s oh so romantic. But I still imagine what I would do if I come to know today that my days are numbered.
And thus began my mental checklist of what I would do and what I should do if I have few months of life left. Midway through this discussion I asked myself, “Why don’t I do these things now? Why do I have to wait for a deadline before I start doing things I want to?”

If you could say it in words there would be no reason to paint.
Few weeks ago I entered my drawing for a contest on Instagram. The challenge was to draw something inspired by your role model.
I went with Edward Hopper. (And Seventeen)

We don’t think about “The Best day of my Life” very frequently, we probably think more about the “The worst day of my Life” for sure. So when I was asked to write on “The Best day of my Life” (In 500 words) I went “Huh, when was the best day of my life?” I couldn’t think of anything for quite some time and that feeling reminded me of school days when we were asked to write an essay on “My Pet”. I had no pet. I didn’t mean I have no best day, I just couldn’t think of anything!

It’s been exactly a month since my last post and also a month since my promise to myself to post daily. A promise which I obviously broke.
But better late than never, right?
I am back with a work I did months ago and I am very proud of.
I, in general am not a huge fan of my work. I never seem to reach my expectations and mess up a lot too esp. while working with paints so, when I end up making something good it’s a surprise for me.
Months ago, on my aunt’s request who has been a driving force for my art and crafts work, I drew my baby cousin’s portrait.
The medium I used was mediocre HP pencils on Printer paper. and this was the outcome…

June has been extremely busy month for me. Commencement of new term, projects and what not.
Some of my time but, was occupied with the 30 day daily challenge.
I tried to get all the drawings and everything on time (but I failed miserably).
In this post I have embedded the first fifteen drawing and doodles I posted for the 30 day challenge.
Note: all of these were taken from my instagram account. I am fairly active on instagram, you can check out my profile by clicking Here.
You can check all of my June challenge drawings under the hashtag #MindscapeDiaryJune
