I love to draw, but I can never be so inventive.
I stick to plain sketches of this DIRECTLY in front of me.

kaiserbreath said...

Wow , i wonder how you got into the mood to draw this one :)

And a little something i read up
Kaam Dev (god of love) is the Ansh Avataar (part incarnation) of Bhagvaan Vaasudev. He is the god of Love. He himself has several names - Anang, Madan. His wife's name is Rati (passion), and Vasant (spring) is his companion. His ride is parrot. He has a daughter named Ashrubindumatee.

He has five arrows in his quiver, all are of different flowers - Lotus flower, Ashok flower, mango flower, new jasmine flower and blue costus. The five states of mind associated with each arrow are - Unmaad (maniacal state), Tapan (fervent state), Shoshan (squeezing out state), Stambhan (stand-stillness); and Sammohan (stupification). The Ashok flower kills natural hunger; jasmine flower desiccates (draining up of emotional and intellectual vitality); mango flower fades the color; lotus flower causes crisscross thinking; and the Costus incites the desire for suicide.

Wowwww...waiting for a colored version.. :) U knw Kaamdev has Makarkundal i.e. earrings designed like a depict the grip of love should be like a croc's grip.. :)and according to old scriptures his Bow is made of Sugarcane- interpretation: when one speaks to the beloved, whatever he says (shoots) should be as sweet as sugar... there are many more such allegories but I think rather getting into describing them I should say...this is the best Kaamdev image I've ever seen..
Waiting for the colored version bro
