omg YES, I'll absolutely draw more of him 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
hnnnfff!!!! Isn't he just marvelous???!! And if you want some awesome Tesla fandom interaction, there's a group at FB named "Tesla's Ambassadors". They're the cutest people and they share lots of Tesla goodness
You're welcome!! I also love meeting fellow Tesla fans!!! 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 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!
OHOOOW MY GAWD!!! YOU NOTICED IT!!! YESSS!! 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!!
I KNEW IT!! 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!!
Thank you! The hug is accepted! XDD now I feel very proud of myself, lol
Gaaahh!! 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.
