Very nice sketch. Hmm...that makes me think of some hand sketches I did a few years ago. I'll have to post them. I really like the perspective, sense of depth and the line work!

Sheri,
Thank you.

Pallava,
I did go through Diah Yulianti's work (among the pics you sent me). They look great. I do see that she has a sketch book in her hand - did you take pics of some of her sketches from this sketch book?
You are right it is nice to have a pictorial record through a sketchbook. It is precisely this that I attempted when I was in India last summer.

Meghjanmi and Suji,
Yes, you are right.

Mad guru,
Thanks. I like your hand sketches.

Ujwala,
Ha ha, that is correct!

Just checked out the link you provided - fantastic work! I love your portraits with washes. (I have posted my comment there)

Thennavan,
Thank you - first I thought HTNYD stood for How To Name Your Drawing! A moment later I realized that it must stand for Happy Tamil New Year's Day!

Hans,
Thank you. I enjoyed going through your work.

Diana,
Thank you.
