 I do hope you draw more of Tesla n future. I am curious, do you know any good biographies about the man.

marimoreno Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2014
omg YES, I'll absolutely draw more of him :D :heart: Yup, there are several biographies, but I think the must-read ones for any Tesla fan are: Margaret Cheney's Man out of Time, and Wizard: The Life and Times of Nikola Tesla by Marc Seifer. n__n

You're welcome!!  :D
I also love meeting fellow Tesla fans!!! :la: And I love how peaceful this scene is - it's one of the few drawings of him I've seen where he isn't in his lab and is actually enjoying himself in the outside world! It's adorable!! And I love how they're toasting with milk :lol:
And Katherine looks so pretty!! I've been reading Tesla's biography recently ('Wizard: The Life and Times of Nikola Tesla' by Marc J Seifer, which is probably the best biography of Tesla) and apparently she was a fan of his as well as his friend! She was practically in love with him, and I just love how you've drawn her putting her hand on his shoulder and how she's looking at him! It's beautiful! :iconomgsocuteplz:

OHOOOW MY GAWD!!! YOU NOTICED IT!!! YESSS!! :happybounce: I did that shoulder thing totally on purpose!!! AHAHAHA!!
Indeed, Tesla is always portrayed surrounded by his inventions and lightning and pigeons, lol, as the genius, the myth, etc, which I absolutely love, but he also had these few friends he spent nice casual times with, so why not including them in his birthday? XD

Ahh! I gotta say, there are a lot of Tesla fans out there, but not all have actually read a complete biography. You're the only one who has noticed the shoulder thing so far XDDD So let me hug you!! :tighthug:

I KNEW IT!! :squee: I knew that was why you did it!!
I love seeing him with his inventions too, but I find it quite refreshing to see him having a casual time with his good friends. Generally when I do practice sketches of him, I can't draw machines so well yet, so I usually draw him with a bunch of friends or I draw him just being generally silly XD But this drawing, I keep looking at it because it's so pretty!! :la:

Thank you! The hug is accepted! hug XDD now I feel very proud of myself, lol :lol:

I absolutely love this composition and the quote is excellent. I also like how selective you were with certain details, drawing more attention to key areas where need be. Excellent piece of work.

Gaaahh!! :heart: Thank you so much! The truth is, Tesla is always portrayed surrounded by his inventions, and lightning bolts and pigeons, lol, y'know, the genius, the super-man, the myth, which I find awesome, but in this piece I personally wanted to show his human side, y'know, a casual evening with his best friends who were almost family for him ;__; So thank you very much, I really appreciate it :3

Yeah I enjoy seeing him in a more subtle way as well. There were some good scenes like that in the prestige where he sat down and just had a chat with Hugh Jackman's character, some of my fav scenes from the movie. But this is really a genuinely satisfying piece to view.
