I posted these 2 photos on facebook recently, to rave reviews. The first one is Rama and the second one is Arjuna.
These aren't even Ads' best work. He only draws mythological characters nowadays (he went through a fire-truck phase, followed by Buzz LightYear and Ben10 fixations, now it is Amar Chitra Katha).The first time he draws something, for example the Narsimha avatar of Vishnu, he will copy from one of his many ACKs. The next time onwards, he captures from memory. He rarely does what most of us do - draw an outline with pencil and then colour it in, although the Arjuna above is one of those. Such is his confidence that he draws straight with colour pencils or crayons.The other interesting aspect of his drawing is the speed. We met with the principal of one of the Gurgaon schools recently (for an 'interaction') and she played right into his hands by asking him to draw something while she spoke to us. He drew the famous scene from the Bhagwad Gita, in 5 minutes flat.
I've been told I should put him in art class. I think I will, maybe after we move. There's a definite talent here. Atleast we won't be pouring money down the sink, which we seem to be doing with his tennis lessons! That's another post, though :)
