this should be easy to draw?

Finally I uploaded my photo from the previous Bangalore Weekend Shoot photographer’s club meet in Lalbagh…

I would like to invite you dear reader – can you send me a drawing of one of the above pictures…?

A simple pencil sketch will do, unless you are feeling more enterprising and want to add color as well. You can either draw it on paper and scan it. Or you could even draw it using Windows Paint, Gimp, or Paint.net or any other image editing tool, and then email it to the common man blog. Unless you have strong inclination otherwise, it will soon be posted here with any attribution/link you provide.

And if you like, you needn’t even get limited to the photo but just use it as a starting point and add anything else.

This is just for fun and not any kind of competition. Don’t be in a hurry, take your time, but give it your best shot!

(Maybe its also a chance for me to confront any realisation that this site really have no readers at all heh heh :mrgreen: …Well, I know I’ll get atleast one from a friend who promised he’d send one, and I myself will make an attempt, so that will be a minimum of two…!)

Some encouragement here… Fun With A Pencil by Andrew Loomis

Excerpt from the introduction…

MR. WEBSTER DEFINES DRAWING
AS DELINEATION. THAT DOESN’T
TELL YOU HOW MUCH OF A REAL
"BANG" THERE IS IN IT. MAYBE
HE NEVER KNEW. MOST FOLKS
LOVE TO DRAW EVEN WHEN
THEY KNOW LITTLE ABOUT IT. IT
STARTED WITH THE CAVE MAN,
AND STILL SURVIVES ON THE
WALLS OF PUBLIC PLACES... BECAUSE
IT’S SO MUCH FUN, AND
SO EASY, IT’S A SHAME NOT TO BE
ABLE TO DO IT BETTER.
~ ANDREW LOOMIS


ALL THAT YOU NEED TO KNOW, TO START
THIS BOOK, IS HOW TO DRAW A CIRCLE. . . .

Don’t start out with that old gag, "I couldn’t draw a straight
line." Neither can I, freehand. If we need a straight line, we
can use a ruler. Now please try it, just for fun.
And it can be as lopsided as the family budget, and
still work out.
