Welcome to my drawings page! Below you're looking at a collection
of pictures I've drawn from 1994 till date. I've got dozens of drawings,
and I'm going to gradually scan all the good ones and put them up here.
I do most of my drawings on the back of notebooks (and sometimes they're
mixed up in a page of notes because I draw in class sometimes!). I'm not a professional artist or anything, I do this as a hobby. It's something I really like to do.
And of course, I'd love to hear what you have to say about these
pictures! You can View and Sign my Guestbook here.

Cruise in "Mission: Impossible".
JPEG 316x542, 75 KB
This is one of my better-known drawings, and is a nice
likeness of Tom Cruise from the poster of Mission:
Impossible. As for the movie itself, I liked
it - I thought it was a great action movie.
Travolta and Nicolas Cage in "Face/Off".
JPEG 461x642, 107 KB
Possibly director John Woo's best American movie, Face/Off
is a brilliant action film with fantastic acting
from both John Travolta and Nicolas Cage. I drew
more than one poster of this movie, and this one is
of "Alien 3".
JPEG 245x642, 78 KB
Director David Fincher (Fight Club, Seven,
Panic Room) made his debut with Alien 3
in 1992. This movie for some reason was not appreciated
by critics. However, there are those (like me)
who think that this is a worthy addition to the Alien
series. In my opinion, this is a very good
movie, and I'd like to state here that Alien 3 is
the reason I started liking David Fincher's movies in
the first place. Of course, his later movies,
Seven and Fight Club are two of my all-time
Moss, Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne in "The

What is The Matrix? As Neo (Reeves) finds
out in this 1999 hit, The Matrix is the computer
simulated world that we are all living in! This
drawing is the first one I did after a break of about
3-4 years. Drawn 9 May 2002.
Extras: Do you want to see
an in-progress version (GIF 331x287, 69 KB) of this
picture when the shading wasn't complete?
Furtado in the video of "...On The Radio".
JPEG 381x242, 36 KB
One of my favourite songs on Nelly Furtado's album Whoa,
Nelly! is "...On the Radio (Remember the Days)".
And I also like it's music video (directed by Hype Williams)
a lot. This picture is a still from the
beginning of that music video. Drawn 10

(not only this one, but several other Nelly Furtado
videos) you can download it at UKNellyFurtado.com.
Furtado - a picture from her album "Whoa, Nelly!".
JPEG 247x542, 39 KB
A drawing of Nelly Furtado, from a picture found on
the inside cover of her album Whoa, Nelly! (the
audio cassette). Drawn 4 Jun 2002.
Extras: Yes, for this drawing I have
a scan of an in-progress version. It's here
(GIF 261x518, 31 KB).
Michelle Gellar as "Buffy the Vampire Slayer".
JPEG 393x542, 63 KB
I finally got around to drawing a Sarah Michelle Gellar/Buffy
picture. I used to be a big fan of Buffy
sometime back (not anymore though). Drawn 21 May
2002 (actually I finished it at around 3 AM that morning).
Extras: I made several scans while I was drawing
this picture - I managed to capture the drawing in 4
different stages before the final one. If you
want to see them (the first especially is pretty amusing)
and ask - I'll send them to you.
of "Wes Craven's New Nightmare" with Freddy
JPEG 319x662, 82 KB
Wes Craven created the character of Freddy Krueger (played
by Robert Englund) in the New Line Cinema release A
Nightmare on Elm Street. This movie was the
seventh in the series, and had an unusual plot - Freddy
tormenting the real-life stars of the movie!
Chan in "Rumble in the Bronx".
JPEG 615x642, 161 KB
New Line Cinema released an edited version of Rumble
in the Bronx to American audiences in 1996 and it
made Jackie Chan very popular in the U.S. Not
surprising since Rumble in the Bronx is a terrific
action picture. Of course, some of the other Jackie
Chan movies are even better!
poster of "Return of the Jedi".
JPEG 528x742, 165 KB
Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (1983)
was the concluding part of the original Star Wars
trilogy. When the Special Edition versions
were released here (1997), I was inspired to draw this
poster from various Star Wars images. Return
of the Jedi was my favourite among the original
Star Wars movies.
JPEG 441x642, 165 KB
One of my drawings based on real-life inanimate objects
(is that an oxymoron?). I happened to have a green
ball-point pen handy and it was the perfect colour for
drawing this can of 7-Up.
Schwarzenegger in "Terminator 2: Judgment Day".
JPEG 716x642, 149 KB
This picture of T2 is probably my best Schwarzenegger
drawing. Granted, you only see half his face here
because the cyborg endoskeleton is visible (the original
pic was on a videocassette box) but I think I got the
features right here. As for the movie, well, who
hasn't seen this?
Brosnan as James Bond 007 in "Tomorrow Never Dies".
JPEG 387x642, 149 KB
A red and blue ballpoint pen - pencil - notebook paper
affair, this one. I think this is a pretty good
likeness of Pierce Brosnan as James Bond. Tomorrow
Never Dies was a fun movie to watch, although if
you ask me, Brosnan's best 007 movie was GoldenEye
(one of my favourite Bond movies).
Cigarette Smoking Man from "The X Files".
JPEG 404x921, 127 KB
I'm pretty proud of this drawing because I drew this
with a black ballpoint pen and still managed to shade
it nicely. Used a LOT of black ink though!!
The mysterious character of The Cigarette Smoking
Man a.k.a. C.G.B. Spender is played by William B.
Davis in The X Files. According to a piece
of trivia I read on the IMDb,
Davis is actually a non-smoker - the cigarettes he smokes
in the show are herbal.
Breed" Poster One.
JPEG 324x742, 76 KB
Dark Breed is a low-budget action/horror movie
starring Jack Scalia. From PM Entertainment Inc.,
and directed by Richard Pepin. This poster is
drawn off the video box (my videotape is more than 5
years old and it still looks new!).
Breed" Poster Two.
JPEG 324x876, 109 KB
Another Dark Breed poster. This was drawn
from a newspaper ad during it's very limited theatrical
Chan in "First Strike".
JPEG 504x756, 155 KB
This is one of my best Jackie Chan drawings. First
Strike wasn't the greatest Jackie Chan movie ever
(that honour goes to Project A), but it was still
a lot of fun.
Judd and Morgan Freeman in "Kiss the Girls".
JPEG 769x642, 152 KB
Kiss the Girls was a very nicely done crime thriller.
Schwarzenegger in "Total Recall".
JPEG 503x439, 89 KB
Total Recall is one of Schwarzenegger's best
movies - mind-twisting, memory manipulating fun!
You can also see a pic of it's director Paul Verhoeven
in this gallery.
Stallone is the "Demolition Man".
JPEG 383x642, 90 KB
Sylvester Stallone plays the character of John Spartan
in the futuristic action movie Demolition Man
- which is, well, not as serious as I thought it would
of "I Know What You Did Last Summer".
JPEG 391x742, 120 KB
I Know What You Did Last Summer - a fun horror
movie starring Jennifer Love Hewitt, Freddie Prinze
Jr., Ryan Phillippe and Sarah Michelle Gellar.
JPEG 474x642, 113 KB
Director Paul Verhoeven has made films such as RoboCop
(1987), Total Recall (1990), Starship Troopers
(1997) and more recently, Hollow Man (2000).
This picture was drawn from a TV interview (for Starship
Troopers I think).
Anderson and David Duchovny in "The X Files".
JPEG 332x742, 108 KB
This picture may not be so good because it's done in a different
style (rough and scratchy). But I still like it.
Bruce Willis and
Jeremy Irons in "Die Hard With A Vengeance".
JPEG 434x642, 110 KB
Die Hard With A Vengeance is a terrific action movie!
Another one of my favourites (the movie, not the drawing).
II: Dead by Dawn!".
JPEG 320x642, 113 KB
"We are the things that were and shall be again!
We want what is yours... LIFE!" This 1987
movie from Spider-Man director Sam Raimi is a
classic! Believe me, you won't find another movie
that mixes slapstick comedy with gory horror as well
as this one! This picture was drawn on notebook
paper, so you can see the lines. Also because
of the pressure of the pencil, the paper's got wrinkles.
Carrey in "Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls".
JPEG 504x798, 140 KB
Wesley Snipes in
JPEG 404x674, 137 KB
This was done with pencil, a red and blue ballpoint pen. I
drew this one on notebook paper, which is why you can see the faint
lines through the image.
Morgan Freeman and
Brad Pitt in "Seven".
JPEG 393x662, 106 KB
Seven is one of my all-time favourite movies, and it's director
David Fincher (Alien 3, The Game, Fight Club,
Panic Room) is one of my favourite directors. This
drawing was made by recording a trailer for it on STAR Movies, pausing
the tape and drawing quickly!
JPEG 596x642, 140 KB
This picture of John Travolta is actually from the Broken Arrow
poster (I think I started out with an idea of drawing the entire
poster, but there wasn't enough place for Christian Slater's face!).
JPEG 604x374, 99 KB
This is one of my very early drawings, done in 1994 (when they showed
RoboCop on STAR Movies). I remember I drew this on the back
cover of a notebook, and after that I don't know how it got to it's
current condition with all the plastic tape around it. Anyway
it's preserved pretty well now, as digital data!
Keep checking this page for more drawings! I'm regularly adding
new pictures to this page, both old and new drawings of mine.
Also, keep reading Karthik's
Home Page, which will tell you what's going to be uploaded soon
on this page!
NOTE: When I say I drew something off a TV screen, it means I recorded
it on a tape, played it back, pressed the pause button when I came
to the frame I wanted, and then drew. VCRs usually pause only
for 5 minutes, and it's very difficult in some cases to get the
same frame to appear on the screen again. Anyway, if you see
a drawing like that, it means I drew it in about 15 minutes (assuming
I paused three times).
NOTE: Pictures have been edited with Paint Shop Pro (adjusting
contrast/sharpness, and resizing to an appropriate size).
File sizes are accurate, give or take a kilobyte, picture dimensions
are accurate to the pixel!
