Grey Scale

When you are taking pictures, you neither want it to be too bright nor too dark. You want the picture to feel soothing to your eye, like 18% grey, so to speak. Its something I have learned over the years. Any walk of life, demands balance. Its about striking the right grey scale. I love grey. My little scribbling so to speak..........

My Sketches


Be good , be grey! Click the above pic to see more.

@brat: thnx bro! dude i love that sketch, if you notice, there would be a abstract figure inside the face of the man, in the form of shadows. I actually liked it!

@Mac: Thnx a lot. Sadly I have lost this skill. getting back wont do justice, to Sachin atleast!

Brat said...

Yeah, its a nice sketch! Unfortunately, I couldn't understand the caption below it - "Vazhkaye Porkalam Vaazhndu Thaan Parkanum" ;-)

@brat: Alas!, it means life is battle field, you will have to live in it and see for yourself!

@root3/markiv: Nice Id. I dint like it that much once i completed it, mostly becos of his left eye. yeah that makes it hard to figure out if its actually Kamal. Thanks for visiting, keep visiting!

@Nut:
Except Sachin's half completed pic, u r free to claim anything! and its hard to prove it to u that i have lost it, its a frustrating feeling no one shld ever experience... I have one in mind, if that screws up, I think I wud almost cry in frustration.

I know what you mean. I do a lot of painting myself. But unless you START something you will never really know will you? And I'm 100% confident that it's not impossible.
