Bush Dai-Dai

So this week's challenge at is the Bush Dai-Dai. She's a succubus that seduces its victims and shape-shifts to a jaguar/bat/wolf to attack. She's usually found in the jungles of the Caribbean, her origin. She has been cited in African legends, etc.

In my opinion, playing the way succubi usually do, a Bush Dai-Dai would probably appear as a hapless maiden whose father/husband/brother has been attacked by a jaguar and who lost her way in the jungle. Thats what I'm trying to portray below. She is the kind of monster that has to carry its other skin with it after it takes it off. So there.

I'm not participating in this project because: I don't draw beasts as often, I don't think I'll be able to meet their awesome standards and because I'm focusing on learning comic writing.

But when I saw the entries to this week's challenge, I just HAD to draw my own version.

I didn't work too hard because: I have to study for an exam coming soon and I'm not submitting this anywhere.

EDIT: Tried to correct my mistake as Rashi pointed out. Let see. :D

Finally got the haircut.

So I went from looking like this:

to looking like this:

Yes, I'm just glorifying it. >_> SNAZZY.

Zoology lab

I was missing the times when I sat before a huge window and just stared at jars containing molluscs and drew them. I love Zoology.

I'm on the far right. Late, all the time. Hardly ever got a seat, specially in Botany. >.> I kept it shaky/sketchy because I just wanted to see if I can do a whole scene. I think with more work, I can.

Metro Girl!

It is so much fun to visit an artist's blog and see something they drew based on what they saw around them. Anything. Inspired by one such artist, I started looking at people around more carefully and noticing things. That is how I found Metro Girl.

One morning, when I was still a trainee at a power distribution company in Delhi (which was a couple of months ago), I was waiting for a metro train, I saw this woman (girl?) also waiting at the opposite platform. The first intriguing thing about her was that she was reading a book as she stood. Which looked slightly strange. I've never seen someone standing stiff and reading a book (unless it was a chemistry exam, which I know lots about). The second strange thing (to me alone, i guess) was that she was wearing only yellow and green items on her. Even the book was yellow and green. O_O Which made me think, wow.

What was she doing? Hoping a good artist would see her and get inspired to draw her? Well, that didn't happen. Did she dress up like that everyday? Were yellow and green her superhero colors? Is she a superhero in disguise? @_@

So many relevant questions. Metro Girl, wish I could draw you better.

Haircut time

My sister has been on my case lately, mostly about my hair. Which also means that she's been nagging me about other things which will completely bore you (much like they bore me). Anyway, I've plucked up the courage to face the lady that-doth-my-hair. >.> For the sixty-seventh time, i think.

Below is a pictorial depiction of my fantasy of a day when I'll be the angry one and she'll be cowering above my head.

In any case, I am not very proud of the drawing. I tried a new style. Thats all I'll say. >.>
