New sucky stuff !

20 mins figure drawing workshop
2 hr fig drawing.


sad drawings..






Bill Russel portrait.


My semester ended with a big smile on my face,i didn't work hard enough at the drawings though,but learnt loads of new stuff!! tried different techniques which didn't turn out well,art is after all experimenting new stuff and learning new things isn't it? only thing i worked hard was on portrait which came out pretty decent,i used a new technique on still life and wrestling drawing which sucked and with that experience worked on my portrait!! i hv taken pictures of these drawings which further degrades them! :( i m surely gonna enjoy this christmas! hope u too,thanks for looking more stuff yet to come!

My first portfolio piece!!!!!

Character design 2D

Character design 3D.
I m very happy bout the way my character design came out from paper (2D medium) to a clay portraiture,glad that i can now convert an intangible idea into something tangible which people can observe and understand...its been a long journey and its gonna be even longer after the sem ends...what i learnt here in 4 months would have taken atleast a year or more in India..this one piece is yet to be converted into ceramic and then coloured! hope everything works as planned...more artwork to come..



thanks for looking.

This weeks work!




Wow..have been spending lot of time on assignments! life is crazy..time is flying really fast and what next - i am kinda tired,sleepless,sick etc.. but its cool i love the direction i am heading towards!


There are like 2 drawings out of which i spent most of the time on drapery! it was so terrible,i am not used to working on a cloth..i mean cubes and different shapes..i am more better with human figures rather than cubes,spheres etc.. i think most of the people in my class think the same - they are surely good with humans compared to basic shapes! this week was great..loads of hardwork and stress which got reimbursed by gettin a B minus for the portrait and a C/C minus on the drapery..i felt my instructor was kinda hard at grading drapery..i might rework on it then get my grades updated! until then..


thanks for looking.

Hardwork does pay off!!

My character design! hvn't thought about the name though..still thinking!!




Wow,i got loads of sketches to post! trying best to post them all togther! I am really happy today as i got a nod for my character design,my instructor told me to work hard on illustrations and ofcourse rendering it and I will do something great! yay! i heard a good comment after a very longtime,it just totally cheered me up,1 thing i learned today - everyone has a downfall once in a while but just don't fall with it - keep fighting you will surely get something thats for sure! and i am glad after working on this character design for the 1st time in my life,i got it quite better than i had expected and m kinda happy with it..hoping i do good with illustrations and rendering (keeping fingers crossed)! thanks for looking.

All set and ready to DRAW!

It has been a really longtime since i last updated my blog what a shame,unable to scan any drawings its really hard for me to keep up with the ongoing competition in my school,trust me i have never come across this kind of competition in my whole life atleast not in India,i also found that people here come to study in the schools and not for fun unlike in India,the amount of dedication i saw in some students in my class was excellent,can you imagine a person spending 10 hours drawing a bottle which looks like a replica of the original bottle such stuff is really mindboggling.
These people are an inspiration to me and helps me to reach my goal-to do more!
i remember someone saying "Art is 90% sweat & 10% talent" if you need something just go for it,don't care what the returns will be,if not anything you will atleast end up with something...
Recently i have done alot of figure drawing and i m slowly loving it somehow,i want to post them but guess what no luck,no time!! life in america is really fast compared to India..
I always used to reach before time in India,but here the same technique doesn't work anymore-the outcome i reach atleast 5 mins late everywhere which is really sad..its been 2 weeks and i can see some improvement in my drawings and my intrest seems growing getting bigger and bigger..i hope to finish my bfa in a year (fingers crossed) and its a challenge that i am facing getting an A might be difficult but getting a B wouldn't be easy either..in AAU C is considered an average student and D is fail,my only aim is A !! and i want A A A A and only A's!!!!

My first attempt at animation!!



video
Here is my first attempt at animation,with not much software knowledge and being a self taught artist its really sad how the way it turned out,Even though being my first attempt it came out pretty well,couldn't convert it to gif so i had to do loads of cropping,copy,paste and stuff..no colours,no backround...just experimenting! hope you like them C&C always welcome!

Thanks for looking.

Its a bird,its a plane,its Shaktiman!!


I was really busy with my visa and tickets..and finally finished with them,enjoying my days here in India till 17th August and then my Art school ofcourse!

Haven't posted since a very longtime its really a shame! anyways i did this Shaktiman sketch just for a drawing jam - everyone had to post their country hero's @ drawingboard.org (A really lovely place!) and i thought i would post Shaktiman which is an Indian version of Superman! hope they like it! will update as much as i can..

The Beginning...






Since I was a child,just like any other kid,I always loved cartoons,it was fascinating to see so many different drawings coming to life just like real human beings,the way they pulled out different emotions it was and is so realistic.

Now after changing 2 different streams from Science to Commerce and now from Commerce to Arts,I feel,I have made my choice of unleashing the creativity through a medium called Art,I had to go through these 2 streams maybe due to lack of availability of choices,or maybe i wasn't matured enough to make my choices,whatever it might be-I have a desire to work hard in this stream and its not the money that i want the most-Its me standing up on my own feet and my parents feeling proud of me as i achieve what i want.

This blog will be a collection of what i create daily - my current projects,my sketches,etc

As for now i will be posting my old stuff,will keep updating as i work on..
