More inspiration, news, and updates!

30th August 2013

Soooo! All you fellow bloggers, artists and film makers! Here's another dose of crazy inspiration!! <3 p="">

Cory Loftis
Visual Dev. artist at Walt Disney - his work is SO JUICY!! So much humor, personality, and life! Beautiful handwork, coloring and compositions! A major inspiration to suffice for another 3 weeks!

Rachel Saunders/Barukurri
Illustrator and painter. Although she's British, her work looks very eastern, and makes me want to watch all the Miyazaki movies (including the ones I've already drooled over) again and again!
Her drawing is so beautiful and soft, and her characters are lovable at the least! Beautiful colors and inspiring characters!

After seeing this, I think you guys should be interested in participating and giving this a shot! It's a mind-blowing opportunity to go for an all-expense-paid-trip to Burbank CA for CTNXpo!!!!!
Hells yeah! The deadline is Oct. 1st. Here are the DETAILS.

Lastly some updates. I have been trying to make a living out of freelancing to fund my own film. I've been working with Doodle Monkey, a company started by some close friends, and I'm using a great site called PeoplePerHour which is for freelancers and people who want to avail their services. Unfortunately it's one of those projects that is confidential and that I can't put up here. :'( Check it out. It's been taxing, fun, and interesting.That's all for now. Film is almost done, sound is left, and my awesome new laptop is finally here to help me finish it! Things are finally looking up!

Cheers and love!! <3 br="">

Learned a ton about lighting the face. :) Also tried a new brush!

Your weekly inspiration - Stephen McCranie

This will suffice your whole week's inspiration needs.

Stephen McCranie's work is full of momentum, simplicity, interest, advice, imagination, curiosity, inspiration, hope, life and art! Enjoy every panel of it. I can't stress on how much you'll be missing out on if you don't see and absorb this.

Cheers and love!

Sketchbook pages

19th August 2012

So I've been more than inconsistent with the blog past few days. I have been so busy with the film, a few freelance projects and personal work that I cannot manage my time well.Now I'm on a short break. This weekend I went off to Pune again - my sister is getting married! So we tried to finish all the shopping in one go (although obviously not possible). I have taken to writing as well in these times of uncertainty, and my sketchbook pages are being used as well. Here're some of the sketches that I didn't upload due to lack of time and patience. More to come, and I intend to color those.

DP Internship #1

10th Aug 2013

So I'm not allowed to post everything, but I'm finally gonna post a few things from my diploma project internship. I developed storyboards, character designs, visual development, illustrations, and a little animation for a story app for the ipad. I worked on 'The Town Musicians of Bremen'.
Here's a frame from the story.

When the user hovers over the character it talks in form of visuals.This guy is one of the three thugs who live in the house where the animals halt for food.

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!
