Hey all!
I'm working on an illustrated story that has Indian culture related themes in it. I use the exotix looks such as clothes and jewelry from India in my art.

Had an experience as a teenager which made me question my beliefs and I discovered Eastern philosophy. Mainly Buddhism at first but later in life have been learning more about Hinduism. Ive been bitten by the colouring in bug and of course my artist daughter got me the book The Shakti Coloring Book by Ekabhumi Charles Ellik and just love the pictures as well the generous information relating to the different Goddesses as well as the their representative Yantras. So I will be submitting picures from that book as well as Mandalas. Hopefully will attempt to draw and color my own pictures of the Veda. Om Namaha Shivaya.

Hello everyone,i'm Rahula (it derives from Vajrayana Buddhism) and i come from Italy but i am Romanian because i was adopted when i was 3 years old. I study Chemistry at University but my real passion is Medicine that i'm going to study probably in Germany because i love german culture and language. India? India is may favourite asian country because it is a complex and fascinating culture with its virtues and weakness like all countries,i love India also because i think many cultural aspect come from India itself. I come across Indian culture mainly with reading of sacred text like Veda,Yoga Sutra (please read Patanjali's Yoga Sutra before practising Yoga!),Tantrasara and writings of Great Masters like Vivekananda. I strongly recommend Vivekananda's books because he introduced the Indian philosophies of Vedanta and Yoga to Western world. I love Indian music too^^ i like to draw hindu devata but my favourite are Shiva and Chinnamasta^^ i like this Group.
Bhurloka12's avatar
My name is Bhurloka12. My biggest influence is Hong Kong artists such as Andy Seto - basically kung-fu comics. The thing that introduced me to Hindu mythology is gaming, mainly the Japanese Shin Megami Tensei series.

I have drawn many deities and monsters from Hinduism, but much of the influence is on Shin Megami Tensei style. I'm flattered you have picked this drawing of Ganesha...…
I have done more like this in my Alternate Demon Sketch or Summon Card folders. Because I don't want to offend people, I will not send deviations to the group unless there's a go-ahead. The-Veda group will call the shots for what they want from my gallery.

Hey!!!My name is Deepa Nambiar,from Mumbai, I love to hear stories of gods and goddesses,from all the cultures.Being a Hindu,I got to hear and read stories from a young age. I dont have favourites,but I do love Shiva and Krishna. I love Hanuman for his strength and devotion,and Ravana for being so stubborn but is the most revered devotee of Shiva..and there are many more gods,goddess and characters from the mythology that I love. My favourite artists are Vangogh,Raja Ravi Varma,Vermeer but I love comic book artists as well like Frank Miller, John Romita, Jim Lee,etc etc. I myself am an artist, and trying to transform  various versions of my favourite characters from my mind to paper. I am looking forward to seeing more artworks from here, so I can learn more and contribute as well :D Thanks for accepting me in!yayy!

Hi everyone! I'm Paula and I got interested in Indian culture through various movies and stories from my childhood, namely the film A Little Princess. My father was stationed in India for a time and though I didn't get to follow him there, he brought back stories and experiences that got me even more interested. In my World Religions course in college, I was most interested in Hinduism and Buddhism and all their stories, and pursued this to an Indian Philosophy course. I also enjoyed the novel Lord of Light by Roger Zelazny, and my favorite novel series is Amitav Ghosh's Ibis trilogy, which right now consists of Sea of Poppies and River of Smoke. I suppose it's just a general interest, and it's incredible to look at such ancient stories and how they've survived.
One of my favorite artists is Sanjay Patel, who had been a Pixar animator and now writes and illustrates books. I recently bought his Ramayana: A Divine Loophole, and am looking forward to its arrival. His style is beautiful:…

Hello, though I've been apart of this group for a bit, I've been kind of introverted. I want to fix this, so hello! my names Raquel. I'm new to the concept of drawing Indian culture and REALLy enjoy the richness in it. I'm working on a few pieces in hopes to share with you all. I have to say my favorite is Sarasvati.

Hi, FoxyShino here. Live in Texas (America). Joined because I love India culture, architect of the buildings and the mythology. Hope to someday to visit a visit a city of India to see things I like and taste the food. For now, I guess that will be it. Unless, someone knows of a good city or village to go to in India.

Glad to see you promoting yourself! :)

Perhaps you could consider enabling prints on deviantART? Also, uploading any works you haven't already? I can see some pencil sketches of Saraswati and Durga which you've actually finished, according to the art exhibition. ^^
