Mikki Ekko Study

20th Nov 2014

Haven't done a speedpainting in really long! Felt totally out of touch. :( Anywho, this is Mikki Ekko from the 'Stay' music video by Rihanna ft Mikki Ekko. I loved this frame, the balance, cam movt, lighting was just gorgeous. Crossed the clock by 30 minutes. :(!

Critiques greatly appreciated!!

Total time taken: 1 hour 30 mins

Inktober Day 1, 2, 3

1st October 2014

#1 - A friend said it looks like he's doing namaz! It's actually blood on his hands. I realized I should have chosen better hand gestures to illustrate. Ah well!

#2 - Her face turned out much more elongated than I'd like, especially after inking! I think I got overexcited and tried to be too stylistic. Anywho, yay learning!! :P

 #3 - The only problem I had with this one is that deltoid line - it's so anatomically and visibly wrong! I decided not to edit it so I remember my carelessness.

Travelling sketches

13th Sept 2014

I've been travelling a lot this month and last. Many train journeys. These are just a few sketches from my journey to Goa. I wish I'd paid more attention to form and proportion, but I was drawing in the flow, more for myself. I thought it was hightime I update my blog regardless of how shitty the drawings have come out! :P Also gave some quick digital tones for depth. Enjoy!

This one had the side ladder in a screwed proportion! Dunno where my attention was.. Maybe I was just in a bit of a hurry :/
Lastly a snap from the journey! ;)

Summer heat

20th May 2014

For a while I was really beginning to doubt myself when it comes to boarding. Just did a quickie based on my friend Shubi's facebook status. It's actually super hot everywhere in India, but I got the power of AC! Lemme know if it conveys properly. Criticism is most welcome.
Cheers and happy monsoons! (Yes, the first showers have cooled off my Goan land)

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. ;)

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!
