Balaji -pre embelishment-
Finished coloring! Semi embellishments before I add more, so this is a bit plain at the moment. The outer frame will have Swarovsky stones of red, green and clear, bottom half of the drawing will have multicolored stones in flower formation in random places. Southern Hindu God Balaji (aka Lord Venkateswara or Vishnu) 19" x 24" Bristol Paper, Hard-pressed drawing using Prismacolor Pencils. This is free handed referencing from a small 8x11 poster. My inspiration is from the Indian art of Tanjore Painting.
Finishing old work
An old work I started back in 2010, I only did the outer frame and left it as is. Sometime middle of last year I had a dream a Hindu god rose from the ground with gold ornaments covering him and flew up into the sky, this made me thought about this drawing and now keeping finishing it. My goal is to get it done before February, this is actually the first time in a few years I have not colored like this, I am mentally getting myself to be active with drawing again. 

I am using Prismacolor pencils the outer frame was inked with Sakura pen. 

This is Sri Venkateswara whom I am drawing, you can read more here --->…
