Sketch for Book Cover

This krishna sketch of mine was used in the book

" Vennaikkaadum pillai "
By M A Venkatakrishnan swami


I sketched this kannan with ahobila mutt dolai kannan, and few other thirumALigai perumal as reference. The kannan is seen with navanEtam in right hand. He is elegantly posing standing on one leg,  I sketched this kannan a long back, I wanted to incorporate few significant features in the art:
they are, viz : 
  1. Srivatsam in thirumArbhu
  2. Kaustubham
  3. the mark of thAmbu kayaru - in his udaram. - signs of "Kanninun Siruthambinaal Kattunna Panniya" charitram
  4. also typical peacock feather - mayura pincha
