The will to have it your way
I am highlighting it this article here, as it details about his late father. Late Sri E N Sukumaran, was an inspiration to many of his friends and well wishers. Those who all know him never misses his presence, even so many years after his death.
My tributes and prayers to his soul, once again, while posting this message here.

Let’s Try and do it – How to draw dot shaded pictures
Dot shaded pictures is a form of creative drawing which needs lots of patience. One can draw a small or big picture using these technique. However, if you are creating a bigger version, one needs to view it from a distance to enjoy it’s beauty.
What is required to create a dot shaded creation?
A person, who has the confidence, I will do it attitude, patience and time. Of course, you need the necessary paper and pen, preferably Pilot V5 High-tech 0.5mm.
How to draw?
First, take a print of the image you want to draw using this technique. If you are taking a color variation of the picture, take it’s print out by adjusting brightness (+10) and dark variation (+10), and dark variation as black.
This will enable you to get the print out with the shades in it.
You will start drawing the picture looking at this shaded print out.
Beginners can use graph styled paper, creating outlines and sketches. You may also use rubber, pencil, and white ink for corrections.
While creating the face, normally, I start from the right eyelids , then eyes, then eyebrows, then nose etc. Then move on to the left eye. Distance between both the eyes should be carefully scaled. It is also very important to measure the distance of the nose.
Following the shades in the picture, the dots can be put, carefully leading from one point to another. Then start the lips. By the time you finish the lips, you will get an idea of the person whom you are trying to complete. If it is not coming out right at this point of time, you may have to start all over again.
This is just to begin with. Try out your first steps of Dot Shaded creations. In case you face any difficulties, you may contact me here, and I will be willing to guide you through with your queries.
