Sassy Diva Sketching


Hiee Guys !!

It’s been a long time I suppose, I’ve made an artwork of Girl and even a sketching of a Diva. I’ve got nice reviews for the first one. However, some of my friends criticized my Diva artwork and calling it a parody sketch work Aerosmith‘s Steven Tyler. So I thought why don’t I make something better. This time, I’ve sketched a Sassy Version of Diva, with the help of Blue Ballpoint pen on a Paper. Here’s what I’ve made.

Sassy Diva

Sassy Diva

Looks like Ashley Massaro. 😛

However, Thanks to such criticizers which helped me to improve on my little mistakes. Hopefully, They’ll get me now after watching this stuff. Feel free to post your thoughts, even criticism.

Duality


Ying Yang

Our Pity Little Mind
filled with Ying-Yang Rhymes.
Thinking Right or Wrong,
Spreading Love or Hate,
Dwelling Respect or Ego,
Doing Perfect or Mistake,
Becoming a Friend or a Fiend,
Admiring Truth or Lie,
Building Trust or Betrayal,
Raising a Rose or a Gun,
Preaching Peace or War,
Making Heaven or Hell.
All over this supreme Duality
Either we Live with it or just Fake over it.

Duality of a Man

Neither I am a fantard of One Direction
Nor I am gonna say them any Gay Fags.
But what makes me MAD at the moment,
when I went through their lyrics
“I want you to rock me, rock me, rock me, yeah
I want you to hit the pedal, heavy metal, show me you care”
BITCH PLEASE !! You’ve already insulted the epic Beatles photo.
Now, Don’t you dare to fuck up the Good Ole Heavy Metal !!
Be the Directioners for those whining teens and hipster youth
But Don’t Pretend to be something else, that you won’t be !! 😛

Showstopper is the story of Windows NT. How it all started as a command prompt OS and became a graphical user interface system following the success of Windows 3.0. The author takes you to the very heart of Microsoft’s project team where you’ll meet not only David Cuttler, the brilliant and brutal architect behind the operating system, but most of the engineers and project leaders involved in the development of Windows NT. See how some of the team members literally sacrificed their family and social life to make this thing work in time. While this is not a technical book, software developers as well as project leaders, and anyone interested by Microsoft products, will have a hard time pulling their eyes away from it.

The Ultimate History of Video Games

The Ultimate History of Video GamesAuthor: Steven L. Kent
Publisher: Three Rivers Press
624 pages
Book homepage

For you gamers out there, this is THE ultimate book to own. To understand where your favorite game console comes from, you need to know the story behind the pinball, the pong, and the development of the first consoles such as the Atari 4600. In this 624-page brick of a book, Kent covers all the angles, anecdotes and humorous stories, such as the rename of Puck-Man to Pac-Man to avoid an unfriendly rename starting with the letter “F”.

The Google Story

Does IT Matter?

Does IT MatterAuthor: Nicholas G. Carr
Publisher: Harvard Business School Press
208 pages
Book homepage

Blinded by their arrogance and syndrome of God, too many IT managers are missing the whole point behind information and technology, which is to provide commodities, as Carr claims. IT must stop focusing on following technology and should realign its mission behind the concept of providing solutions to fulfill business needs. And just as the steam engine, railroad, telegraph and electricity, technology evolves to a point where manpower decreases substantially, and IT will be no exception. This is a must-read for high-level management! I recommend everyone involved in IT to keep this book on their bedside table.

On The Edge: The Spectacular Rise and Fall of CommodoreAuthor: Brian Bagnall
Publisher: Variant Press
548 pages
Book homepage

Raise your hand those who once owned a Commodore 64? God, I would pay a lot of money to go back to the 1980s when the C64 was the king of the hill. This particular book, however, is not about hot rods. The story of Commodore is about very affordable family computers. This book starts at the very beginning of Commodore, when they acquired MOS Technologies, a semiconductor manufacturer, that lead to the development of the PET. Once the PET was history, then came the VIC-20, followed by the Commodore 64, which is known as the most sold computer of all time. The story even introduces the 128, the Amiga, and the end of Commodore. How could such a successful company fall so abruptly from the top of the world? This is what you will find out if you get yourself a copy of On The Edge. Definitely one to buy for the Commodore lover. And while you’re at it, check out this VIC-20 TV ad to remember the good old days.

Hackers

HackersAuthors: Steven Levy, Steven Levy

In this book, the word “hackers” does not refer to bad guys taking control of your Windows 98 PC or sending e-mail viruses. Hackers in this book are people who improved primitive systems by hacking electronics, thereby increasing their computing power and efficiency. In a period where computers were looked at like lab rats, university researchers and early developers such as Lee Felsenstein, Bill Gates and Steve Wozniak, pushed their limits and literally inspired what would be one day be seen as the computer revolution. Hackers offers a peek at a very formative time in geekdom and is worth reading no matter what year it is.

Publisher: Broadway
352 pages

This is the story of Steve Jobs, starting from the moment he was pushed away from Apple in 1985, and following his story until his return in 1996. During his leave of absence, Jobs tried to revolutionize education with the NeXT Cube, his startup that never made it big. On the side though, he purchased Pixar, the company behind Toy Story, from George Lucas himself, and literally made a fortune with something he couldn’t care less about. Finally, his journey with NeXT ended when the company was purchased by Apple in 1996, bringing Jobs back to his mother company, and the rest is history. The story of Jobs’ post-1985 Apple career is captivating, and the author brings you a very well-written book that’s entertaining from the first to the very last page.

This completes the 10 Must-Read Books for Geeks series. If you are tired of reading Danielle Steel, I guarantee you now have quite an exciting pile of geeky books on your bedside table.

The Iron “Dishoom” Fist


Heyy Guys !!

This past Week our College celebrated The Annual Inter-College Cultural Festival called “Moksha” with Bollywood Theme, dedicating a tribute to 100 Years of Indian Cinema.

Besides, I have decided to give a little tribute to this Bollywood Achievement in my blog. To get started with, I have simply drawn a pencil cartoon sketching of a Right Hand Fist punching out from the paper with Dishoom (Typical Bollywood) sound. 😛

Take a look on the artwork, fellas.

The Iron Dishoom Fist

The Iron Dishoom Fist

Although I am not Crazy Bollywood Fan (especially these days), but I really like some cliches and stereotypes which makes the movie funny and entertaining. Still there are many classic and cult Bollywood Movies which I would like to watch many times. The List is too long, I won’t bore you.

Overall in a nutshell, It’s all about

Entertainment, Entertainment and Entertainment 😉
