Stick figure Fight

                   Since a while, though I was busy with some film works, I was working my view) on this kind of presentations. This sample was done 5 months ago. This is not a frame by frame animation...It doesn't look so detailed, but many times it gives a better idea of the scene than a single storyboard panel. Some scenes demand such a presentation...and I am working on one of such scenes for a film now. Check back to see what it is in the coming days. I assure you to surprise you with many other posts.


Gandhi : Common Man

Hi, here comes my next drawing. Actually 
I am developing this as a concept and 
planning to continue as a series. It may
take a while to give it a final shape.


BG Study

OK, it's now time for some BG painting...

Today a young friend came to me asking for digital
painting tips. The fact is being clear, he is going to attend an interview for BG artist post in a local animation studio. And this was the the demo painting I've explained him in photoshop. It took an hour or so. I felt pretty happy that I was able to finish the painting while explaining him. I am posting it after adding little details on the water.

    Later I was explaining animation in flash for two of my other friends.

    All of the three are familiar with 3D animation and they think (literally complain) that it's now flash that is ruling the industry. Obviously it will.

    Also, what I found is many artists are forced to buy a digital tablet and they don't know whether to go for wacom or any second choice. As the reason is being price range, it seems considerable. But as a wacom intuos 4 user for 5 years, I suggest it strongly not to go for any thing less than wacom. Though it is expensive for any of our artists, I can clearly give my word, it will never let you down with your artistic ego ( or may be urge).

    As there are many gadgets trending now like tablet pc's, touch screen phones, I feel an artist should better be equipped with the reasonable paraphernalia to cater market requirements rather than blaming it. 
Ultimately speed and quality is the motto. 
don't forget to stick to the basics of your art.


Animating with brush line

Animating with brush line always adds beauty
to the show. It makes the cartoon more artistic.
Unlike a uniform line, thick and thin lines look 
more lively. this is not a frame by frame 
animation. It's just part of an experiment. 
This caricature was designed for Vijayavihaaram
magazine...around 5-6 years ago.

Mahesh Babu getup

This one, I've done for one of my show Maheshbabu character in a different getup...a native one. I've removed the titles, and other details to keep it simple, and for privacy sake.

We are Homeless

'We are Homeless'

These rough drawings are developed to
visualize a 3d animation short film.I loved
the concept as it is based on 'Biodiversity'.
After working on 'Nalgonda bachavo' based
on a protest against Uranium plant in
Nalgonda district, and 'Global warming',
for a commissioned programme for DD, here comes
my favorite topic again. Seems appropriate...!
These drawings are developed for a quick view
of the concept. we are still working on the
styles of characters as well as  backgrounds.
Taking a chance, I would prefer to appreciate
my friends for focusing on an important topic.
