Musica è vita!

14th July 2015

Did a fun sketch of a musical man! Had a real fun time painting this guy. I realised how weak my lighting sense is! The initial sketch had some really messed up lighting with multiple light sources! Arvind helped me out with the shadows and I went ahead wit what it looks like right now.

Hope I'll be finishing the other two characters I drew along with this guy!

The title if the post means - 'Music is Life' in Italian. Enjoy! :)

Prisoners Character Study

11th July '15
Did a quick character study on Hugh Jackman in Prisoners. I should def do this more often, there is a lot of learning involved. Hugh Jackman is such a great actor, and I absolutely love this film and the character he plays in it.

I am learning how to quickly capture a character in drawing, and I hope soon I can make a very readable character design off it.

Sebastião Salgado - TED Talk on The silent drama of photography

This isn't related to art, but it's so important that I had to share it on as many platforms possible.
What an absolutely insightful, thought-provoking and inspiring story. I hope this spreads like wildfire and touches people the way it touched me. Humanity has gone at all lengths to destroy itself. I really hope for once, we reconstruct to restore balance.

Please send this to as many people as you can to create awareness, and hopefully it would reach governments and important officials who can help us plant more trees and kill fewer animals. 

Economics PhD Sebastião Salgado only took up photography in his 30s, but the discipline became an obsession. His years-long projects beautifully capture the human side of a global story that all too often involves death, destruction or decay. Here, he tells a deeply personal story of the craft that nearly killed him, and shows breathtaking images from his latest work, Genesis, which documents the world's forgotten people and places.

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!
