'Guru Gobind Singh Ji' and 'Baba Ajit Singh' by Pen-Tacular-Artist
'Guru Gobind Singh Ji' and 'Baba Ajit Singh'
This is a close up of my latest Sikh artwork of the tenth Guru, 'Guru Gobind Singh Ji' and his eldest son 'Baba Ajit Singh' (full version below). As its 'Vaisakhi' coming up which is the most important time for Sikhs around the world, i thought i'd do a drawing to celebrate this. The drawing is A2 (420x594mm) and was done with grapite and charcoal and took 100+ hours over 12 days. 

Guru Gobind Singh Ji, had 4 sons in total who were all martyred at a young age. So this drawing was quite emotional for me as it is a father and son piece trying to capture the love between parent and child. This depicition of Guru Gobind Singh is when he is quite young at the age of 22, when he had his first son 'baba ajit Singh' who is supposed to be about 6 months old in this drawing. 

All four of Guru Gobind Singh Ji's sons were martyred. 'Two of his sons, the eldest and second eldest were martyred, fighting at the battle of Chamkaur in 1704. With 'Baba Ajit Singh' being 18 years old and his younger brother 'Jujhar Singh' only being 14 years old.  And a few month later in 1705 Guru Gobind Singh's youngest sons 'Zarowar Singh' aged 9, and 'Fateh Singh' aged 7 were executed by the moghul rulers. And Guru Gobind Singh Ji's died a few years later in 1708 at the age of 41.

'Beauty and the Beast' bottom half by Pen-Tacular-Artist
'Beauty and the Beast' bottom half
So I decided to upload only the bottom half of my drawing on animal cruelty titled 'Beauty and the beast'. The full drawing is quite large at A2 and is horizontal not vertical, and has rabbits being experimented on at the top half. But I felt that when I took the rabbits away and flipped the drawing on its side the drawing then it took on a whole different feel and could of been a drawing in its own right.

'BEAUTY AND THE BEAST' by Pen-Tacular-Artist
'BEAUTY AND THE BEAST'
This is my third drawing in my series of artwork on animal cruelty and is titled 'Beauty and the Beast'. In total it took about 100+ hours over 13 days and is on A2 (420x594mm) paper. And was one of the most time consuming and difficult drawings I have done so far.

This piece of artwork is dealing with animal cruelty within the cosmetics industry. Animal testing on cosmetics is one of the most controversial areas of animal testing. Although it was banned in the United Kingdom (UK) in 1998, it does still occur in other areas of the world. The European Union (EU), introduced a testing and marketing ban in march 2009. And since March 2013, it has also been illegal to sell cosmetics products within the EU which have been, or which contain ingredients, newly tested on animals.

Although it's encouraging that a number of countries outside the EU are also now seeking to adopt similar bans. However, in others - including China and the United States of America - animals are still used to test cosmetics ingredients and products.  Although they are not required by law, several tests are commonly performed by exposing mice, rats, rabbits and guinea pigs to cosmetics ingredients.

This can include, skin and eye irritation tests where chemicals are rubbed onto the shaved skin or dripped into the eyes of restrained rabbits who are confined in little boxes with only there head showing. Without any pain relief which causes serious injuries and leads to blindness. Repeated force-feeding studies lasting weeks or months to look for signs of general illness or specific health hazards such as cancer or birth defects. And widely condemned "lethal dose" tests, in which animals are forced to swallow large amounts of a test chemical to determine the dose that causes death.

At the end of a test the animals are killed, normally by asphyxiation, neck-breaking, or decapitation. Pain relief is not provided. In the United States, a large percentage of the animals used in such testing (such as laboratory-bred rats and mice) are not counted in official statistics and receive no protection under the Animal Welfare Act.

At present, cosmetics testing is generally faring well without the use of animal testing in areas where it is banned and hopefully, this trend will continue to take hold of other countries. And there are already more than enough cosmetics products available and thousands of existing cosmetics ingredients are accepted as safe. It is simply not justifiable to cause animal suffering to develop more.

Before i give my life story i just wanted to highligtht that my drawings will mainly consist of graphite. And will encompass a wide variety of different 'fanart' especially sci-fi, games and comic book characters,aAs well as traditioal portraits (which is not my strong point yet).

Now for my life story. I have been drawing and loved art for as long as i can remember and graduated with a degree in 'Product Design' 13 years ago. And I also had my comics strip published in a national U.K newspaper when i was only 15. But for reasons that are way to complicated to go into here, i abruptly stopped drawing. And all self belief and confidence in my drawing abilties vanished which left me having no interest in art or design and I subsequently did not draw for a full 11 years.

But in mid 2012 i had an urge to draw again so opicked up my bic biro pen and haven't really stopped. And I loved using all types of pen's (hence my name) to draw, with my favourite pens originally being 'bic pens', 'magic markers' and 'rotring isograph pens'. But haveing started using graphite in sept 2012, it has now overtaken them and has now become my favourite medium to use.

I am only now at a point (since my spiderman drawing) where i should have been, due to neglecting my skills for 11 years. But i am making up for lost time and drawing every day and will not be happy till my work is up to the standard of some other incredible artists on DA, like 'Angelstorm-82' . So to all the other amazing artist on here thanks for the inspiration that you give me.
