Words are tough to paint !

Su tagged me this very interesting (and tiring) paint tag — one of the best I’ve had! It was not that difficult — I’m not here to showcase my artistic abilities (as is obvious from the pictures). It was just a very childish game I played using Microsoft Paint! And let me tell you, I’ll any day prefer crayons and colour pencils (and I’m quite good at them!) to a multi-tasking mouse !!!

Before I list my ‘targets’, here are the rules:

  • What you draw is your wish. But it has to be relevant to the words given to you.
  • You must use all the five words given to you by your tagger and draw pictures using paint or GIMP or any other photo editing tool.
  • Each picture must be self explanatory when you relate it to the given word.
  • Each word MUST have at least one picture attributed to it.
  • None of these pictures should be copyrighted. By this I mean that you have to draw them yourself.
  • After you finish the tag, which I think will take quite some time; you need to pass it on to other people with a fresh set of 5 words.

The words I were assigned were: Race, fat man, bull-dozer, rocks, ship. And here’s what I came up with (please do not ring me up if you have abuses at the tip of your tongue πŸ˜› )

Race needn't hinder the relation!

Race needn't hinder the relation!

D  And Santa, I swear it's NOT you. I've been good all year!

Didn't quite come out as fat as I intented him to πŸ˜€ And Santa, I swear it's NOT you. I've been good all year!


Ahem! No comments πŸ˜€


They're supposed to be ice cubes... πŸ˜€


My best one πŸ™‚

Now, since I’m done with it, I pass it on to:

Nikhil: Cracks, novel, rant, scuba diving, idiyappam πŸ˜‰

Verbivore: Heaven, teeth, city, park, books πŸ™‚

Reema: Exam, coat, laboratory, award, corridor πŸ™‚

Vimal: Love, music, sleep, dust, cat πŸ˜€

Apar: Child, joy, game, footsteps, candles πŸ™‚

Aparna: Hurt, cake, oven, easy-chair, Dopey πŸ˜›

Oxy: Train, theatre, under-water, nails, Shobha De πŸ˜‰

P.S.:You’re supposed to do this tag according to whoever tagged you first! P And, I give you the freedom to replace not a single word by any other of your choice. You may or may not extend this to others.
