Wishing you all monsters a very happy new year 2010 . Hope to see everyone getting what they really love in their lives and live happy..

Life is such a illusion where one doesnt know what's going to happen next. But still we all live with hope, aspirations and Dreams. Well as a human being all we can do is to play our part to the best in this huge stage. Dream on, and never let anything come in your way to success or what ever you call it as. Live every moment like its your last moment in your life and never let go your dreams at any point in your lives. I know it sounds too philosophical .. hehe. have a blast people. Wishing you all a prosperous and rocking new year

i'm unfortunately temporarily having to leave animation owing to circumstances and personal reasons, and am moving onto illustrations. i've even shifted my base from bangalore to delhi!

but ofcourse, i've only stopped animation professionally, but not personally! i'll try my level best to keep doing personal animations, but professionally i can hope to return only once the grass gets greener!

i'd like to thank each and everyone of u from the bottom-most corner of my LIVER (that's way below the heart eh?!) for ur never-ending support and faith in me! guys i really owe u ALL i have become today!! and i'm sure i'll continue getting the same support from u all always!

keep in touch guys... and so will i!! and i am certain that i SHALL RETURN ONE DAY!! (so for now, let's just draw that line with a pencil!). :)

A blog for Sketching

Damn i missed daily sketches after leaving Ittina. Here's the alternative :D Introducing :

Ok, this is how it works. Libere Artisti is a page connecting individual sketching blogs. We are conducting Outdoor sketching sessions in our place every thursday and put the sketches in each artist's individual blog. Since it's tough to organize combines sketching sessions online, the plan is to start sketching on your own, post them in your Sketch blog and give us the link.You'll have a button to your blog from our main page.

It's just for the fun of doodles. May be we can be lucky to get a great guy in some day and get some tips and tricks.. Till then,it's all about practising and sharpening your skills.

Doodles, Life sketches anything goes..

Let me know how many would like to start some serious sketchin. Grab a book, Pocket some pencils...get ur ass out of the room..computers does not exist for u for a while... capture some life on paper :D

( plz join only if u r really interested to keep doing it . I'll see you in the comments )

enjoi monsterz!

A film that documents the goodwill tour of South America that Walt Disney and select members of his staff took during 1941.

It ultimately helped inspire the studio’s Latin America compilation features: Saludos Amigos and The Three Caballeros.

Who is supposed to be blamed? The bad animators? or the inefficient Entrepreneur? or the financiers in Bolly wood?

An article by the CEO of Animation Dimension

My question: As someone said when the bow breaks the cradle falls. Does anyone, even care about the baby? What happened to it. Was there a baby inside or was it empty?

The ultimate point that I would want to know is, do the companies still reward and encourage good works in INDIA? (Shame on the animation Industry if not)

Lets discuss?

damn i just FREAKED out on this one!! right from conceptualization to the end, i loved working on this piece! not too much of a story here... just wanted to show two people talking. i also wanted to do some subtle acting this time. it's also the first ever time i animated a hindi dialogue, so it was an enormous challenge working on it! indian acting is definitely something we shud all try... it's a whole new world of acting choices!!! i really learnt a lot from this! do check it out and pour in ur c&c.

this is also officially my LAST assignment in takshaa! my my, how time flies!! :D

i must take this opportunity to THANK ALL OF YOU for your never ending support. it's only because of you guys i cud improve so far!! really thanks a lot guys! :)

all i'm waiting for now is the ANIMATION JURY on 23rd may! fingers crossed! :D

p.s. btw for those who dont understand the language, lemme translate it.

the first guy,"you know that meena from cheekuwadi?? the other evening she was passing by nautan lane. i asked her right then and there... you wanna marry me??"

the second guy,"what happened next??"

the first guy,"what could happen?? she SLAPPED me with her sandal!!"

they both start laughing!

nina paley "Fetch" (DUCK Studios)

prasad's post really took me back to those nina paley days!! there was a time i was going CRAZY about her work. i still am! she's really one of my inspirations! one of my wishes is to meet her someday!

here's another awesome video i had watched over and over again of nina paley. i love the abstraction in this one!! and it has only 4 simple characters to deal with: a man, a dog, a ball and a line. check it out!

Sita Sings The Blues !

Nina Paley, using 'Creative Commons license' is allowing people to watch her indi film "Sita Sings The Blues" .Don't loose this chance and go watch it, you can download it in various formats and sizes (including HD, use a nice download manager for this ! ) from here. It's said she have completed it alone in a small apartment, with very limited funding's ! But, just a word of caution, keep your mind and heart open while watching this film, and don't watch if you are a Hindu Extremist ! For me it was nice experience, just don't want it to show to my mother :) Go watch !

...ha ha Some crap i did. flash. entirely spontaneous stuff..580 frames in 6 hours..No thoughts,No planning, No artificial flavors involved. free flow of mind , a lil bad mood ...and some flashcs3 :)

" And the Nightmares are back... i really thought she had left me for good, then... i think i was wrong... i run and run amok.. they still chase me like there is no tommorow...i flee to escape... but the impetus is so hard that it pushes me over the edge... "

".....but who am i fooling... no wonder even when i travel across seven lands, your love looks upon me like death... i don't want to bear your love and live till i age and wither off... let me be crucified... for you and millions of other unrequited love... "

lemme know if u like it :) i don't mind if u don't :D it's nothing great :D
