Second GIF

22nd April 2014

So I decided to take my previous GIF a step further and animate my awesome friend Ram. Check him out dancing. I haven't animated over a year or something so please forgive this nonsense.

I'm still happy with it. *grin*

Party tiiiiiiime! Feel that energy!
For those who can't stand the blinding colour!

First GIF

21st April 2014

Yes, as the title reads, this is my first GIF, and don't mind, it's pretty lame. I just wanted to see how they do it, and I managed this shabby work. It's actually a caricatured painting of my good friend Ram. It's more like a process GIF actually. I wanted to demonstrate how easy it is to draw Ram. Step by step. ;)

Shiftin' Shade Cover art!

15th April 2014

So this is a project I took up for a friend who is an awesome musician. He has recently started Electro-Jazz. His name is Darren Pareira, a.k.a Shiftin' Shade. You can follow him and his upbeat fresh music HERE. I made a cover art for him which may/may not appear on his first Vinyl Album. Here is the entire process with the final results. ;) Enjoy.
Initial explorations that I showed Darren

The final painted artwork. I just went blank when it came to the background, but then I thought I'd leave it that way.

Tried out some filters. I actually liked the last one a lot, Darren even tried an ACID filter which I've tried really hard to find but failed.

Puppy Speedpainting

14th April 2014

I am feeling increasingly depressed, waiting for my studio results. I just really hope I get in my dream studios! Meanwhile, I am combatting apathy. I got myself to do a speedpainting after FORever. Here's tonights. Hope this continues!
I really wish I'd finish on the 30 minute mark, but this took 60 minutes to be exact.

Seeing the thumbnail I just realise how wrong the colours are, and how squishy-squashy puppy's face looks. I took this because I loved the lighting and all the bounce light and the balance of cold n warm colors, but I tend to see colours brighter than they are. Hopefully I'll improve with time.

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!
