My Buddha Drawing

The process of letting go....the pencil took me. Two and a half feet tall. I would like to release it when finished to the world through Ebay and donate proceeds to a cause. An idea.

    Oh! -- did you draw the rocking chair too (your icon)?
  • Hello again. The chair is from elsewhere, though I'm drawn to it...punny?
  • Proper focus would help...I'll work on it.

    When you put it on eBay, please announce it here. I'm sure many of us would like the opportunity to bid on it.

    And, I especially like the hands/fingers. Quite realistic as opposed to stylized.
  • I shall alert you all...hey, this gives me a bit of fire to get him finished, thanks BonsaiDoug !
  • ...also, about the realism / stylized option. I remember quite clearly the feelings around bringing Gautama directly to the spot where I was, in human I imagine he might want it...with a pleasant "how do you do". Less deity, more neighbor...

    Will you release it in other forms other than an original print?

    Would be sweet on a t-shirt.

    And as for your last comment, it really shows. He looks accessible.
  • Hi ourself, thanks for the kind words. I have not the access to the t-shirt printing realm...yet, maybe some day. The process of drawing is the thrill as is the subject. As a matter of offering. I plan to make another after this is done, then another, and more, then there's that one, and on and on...all different. A life's work...a new resolve of ease and passion..."egoless drawing" Hip Hip Hurray !

    Wish I could draw like that. I recently picked up a stack of comics that were 25 cents each, and I wish I could use them to learn how to draw. It's very hard though.
  • Try a little less, watch a little more, stay loose and appreciate those happy accidents that your hand and mind make. Don't try to draw like someone else, draw like you do, and you'll have way more fun and 2 cents.
