Sketchbook nudes and travels!

7th Feb 2013

As usual I am posting these very late. I'm such a lazy bum when it comes to scanning. Here're a few doodles from my sketchbook. I used my color pencils after really long!

Also we were travelling a really far off distance for one of my friend's sisters wedding. It was so far, and we got lost atleast thrice. After a point I took out my sketchbook and started sketching at the bike of the bike. Here're the sketches from that day.

 Travelling with Madhu and Alok

I was sitting behind Arvind. This is him. 

Frequently asking for directions!

This is what most of the journey turned out to be like. Forked roads!

Pirouette animation experiment

15th Feb 2012

Made this last night for fun! It's completely out of memory. I think I watch too much So You Think You Can Dance. I wish to learn contemporary dance some day and do one successful pirouette. Other one on the bucket list. It's not perfect, because I don't know dance and I didn't see any reference, but I hope you like it!
You can right click and turn the loop on if you like.

I can't stress on how important it is for an artist to do work for himself. In the journey of art as a profession, one forgets why one did this for money in the first place. Doing work for yourself reminds you how rewarding and how truthfully happy it makes you to animate something.
I can't do a pirouette now, but my drawings can. ;)

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!
