Ctrl+Z

26th May 2012

So this is what happened today. Since I've gone all digital my hands are ALWAYS, and I mean - ALWAYS on the keyboard. So when I picked up the pencil and sketched out Francis (my character), this is what happened.

I was intensely drawing, totally into it.

 Damn his nose went wrong again!




I tried stomping on the keys Ctrl+Alt+Z, but nothing seemed to happen!
 
And suddenly, the magic eraser appeared!


So much for going digital.

Goro Fujita's Speed Painting Gyaan!

TREASURE! TREASURE!!!



Well I'm a big fan of Goro Fujita's work. I've been having a lot of trouble painting my backgrounds and coming to terms with myself regarding the look of the film. Anywho, I was about to request Goro to put up a digital painting tutorial, and then I stumbled upon this! I can't tell you guys how useful this was. It makes everything clear - and as long as you practice it, you'll keep getting better. One major mistake I made was I always kept the bg color white - which doesn't allow me to set the mood or play with the values!
Enjoy!!

22nd March 2012

Most of the time these days we're more like this:





 Animation takes up your time, patience, it tests you and your will, your determination. It is hard. But we gotta keep it togetha! :)

It wasn't me

18th May 2012

Lately the computer lab that I work in has been.. well - discomforting. Someone's releasing a lot of gas in the air conditioned lab, and this is how I deal with it.





The Greedy Pencil

This blog is a collection of (some of) my work, the art I do for fun, my inspirations and the sweat that goes into making animated films. Enjoy!
