Iron man

This is a part of our course on 3-d modelling which is going on at present, where we had to design iron man. This is my first model in Maya, so pretty happy with it!

A fishy tale-2

was experimenting with an illustration concept I had which was for an article for our college magazine.

Chef's special

I drew this when I'd gotten irritated of reworking the above fish sequences over and over again, and was in a bit of a destructive mood! :-P

wooden toy

sketched this from an image of a wooden toy I'd found online. the patterns on his dress were pretty interesting.

random scribbles

These are just random scribbles from my newsprint sheet sketchbook.

A healthy meal

This has been inspired by a website blublu.org where this illustrator has some pretty crazy and detailed work.

Ek raja ki kahaani

This is a series of scenarios which i'd done for another assignment of character design. The story basically dealt with a King's rise to power, and his realisation that he'd failed to live his life the way he'd originally intended to, and him eventually giving up his throne. Inspired by Javanese puppetry, I adopted this style of cut-out animation.

Medium: Poster colours, cello gripper ball point pen.

Stranger than Sympathy

Haven't been able to draw a guy playing a guitar uptil now, this seems to be the first!
This is based on a Goo Goo Dolls song "Sympathy", which i was listening to, while making this one.

medium: Poster colours, ball pen, marker

Medieval wars

Dunno why I did this, wasn't even in a disturbed mood!

Character Design

The colour palletes and style for the story underwent a lot of changes, this is the first attempt.

in the second one, i tried a bit of yellow at the back to increase the contrast.

Not too happy with the 2nd exploration, this one is in black white and greys, flat application.

The 3rd scenario:

Character Design Sketches

These are some of the character sketches which I'd made over the past week in our character design course.Its based on W. Somerset Maugham's short story about a servant's appointment with death in. The characters were a bit tricky 'cos there wasn't much information given about them in the story, so it left me a lot to interpret.
Showing death in its simplistic, yet mysterious form was quite challenging.

These are some of the character explorations for the servant.

Colour Pencil Sketches

I had already uploaded these sketches on deviantart quite a long time back, but after Jasjyot's meaningful argument that drawings and illustrations do look better on blogspots, let's say..."I saw the light".

The Woody Alone series

The above illustrations were done when I was down with malaria, sitting at home and was enjoying boredom doing the hoola-hoops for me in front of my my bed-ridden eyes.
This concept of a wooden man longing for his loved one jumped out at me when I heard Joseph Arthur's song "Honey and the Moon" for the 'n'th time that day.

medium: water soluble colour pencils and a wet brush

Bounce Padoon-ahi, Bat firavoon-hi, Ball maarun dhavaaychaaa...!!!

Ok, in case you were wondering what the title was all about, this melodious tune was the result of every four, six or fall of wicket in every instance of an MPL match. MPL is basically the Maharashtra Premier League flagged off by Sharad Pawar, which catered to an equally enthusiastic audience from around the state.

I watched the first semi-final between Torna Tigers(Red) and Sindhudurg Sailors(Blue), and though the run-rate was over 6 an over, I really couldn't keep my eyes open throughout the match. Like I said, it's for cricket enthusiasts...! Well, in case you're wondering again, who won the game, it was the Sailors, who went on to lose to Raigad in the finals.

well, had it not been for an 8x zoom in my sister's digital camera, I might not have bothered to take pics of the action going on in the field out there, the crowd was a whole lot more interesting.

Of Fishes and Parallel worlds...

This one needs photoshopping, have to work on details...but couldn't wait to put this one up, so here's it!
This one is done by inverting the colours before scanning the picture on the disk.
My obsession with black and white continues...

About fishes and parallel worlds...

This is a submission for an article written by Kaveri for 'Cut Here'.Basically inverted the colours before scanning the drawing on the disk.
