"Thanks GS! Always good to see this chart. However, these are more at the extreme ends of expression, leaving little or no room for doubt as regards the wearer's intent/mood (provided they are not actors or politicians :P). I was referring to, in an…"

"Thanks Balaji! I guess that's also how amateur star-gazers, just starting out, were taught in the old days on how to locate a particular star or planet. If the star wasn't too prominent, first a large section of the sky, containing a bright star was…"

Prosenjit Roy replied to Rashmi Patel's discussion A still-life attempt in The Oils Group
"You are most welcome Rashmi and Asha, it was entirely my pleasure. However, all that text didn't redeem me from my typo-tendencies :( So generous of you guys not to mention that gross howler @ 'deemer'. Yes, it'd be 'dimmer' instead (sigh!)"

Prosenjit Roy replied to Prosenjit Roy's discussion Figure sketches in pastel, digital and other media... in Drawing the Human Figure
"Aww... thank ye muchly, Prabha. This is a relatively desolate part of the forum, seeing that we are a conservative lot and tend to mix the art of figure construction (which is at the foundation of all art with people in it) with other, societal cons…"

Prosenjit Roy replied to Muralidharan Alagar's discussion CWA @ Cholamandal Artists Village in Chennai Weekend artists
"Well, knowing what's gone wrong is already half-way to doing what's right :)
Yes, proportion is the key, and next time, you could use the vertical height of the head as unit scale, and measure how many heads make up the figure, and where body parts…"

"Nithya - 2 bits or not, these are valuable :) now its my turn to add mine...
What you've thoughtfully written here is rather revealing of the curses and boons (mostly the latter, of course) of drawing from life. For a beginner, which most of us are,…"

Prosenjit Roy replied to Ganapathy Subramaniam (GS)'s discussion Review: CWA @ Spaces on 23rd June 2013 in Chennai Weekend artists
"I don't know why you aren't satisfied, I think this is a beautiful study in not just textures, but also in colors. The reds and greens look so vibrant against each other... I think you can print a season's greetings card out of this and send to your…"

Prosenjit Roy replied to Prosenjit Roy's discussion Studying Antonio Canova's 'Three Graces' in Studying Old Masters
"Very nice and accurate depiction of the figures, Murali! Since you've gone into this detail at your sketch stage, perhaps you could've worked more on the hair (and on the face in profile as well) although that's not very relevant at this stage.

Prosenjit Roy replied to Rashmi Patel's discussion A still-life attempt in The Oils Group
"Rashmi, wow... congrats on that neat studio set-up. Looks professional, what with the light on the still-life. Wish you many more productive sessions (just don't breathe too much turp :P)
That is a wonderful 'attempt'... really like it... hence I di…"

Prosenjit Roy replied to Prosenjit Roy's discussion Nudes in acrylics in Drawing the Human Figure
"Interesting thoughts... I think she is slightly leaning into the wall behind her, which would tend to bulge the gluteal flesh laterally. Her legs are therefore neither horizontal, nor vertical but at a steep-ish angle to the ground. I couldn't tell…"
