Fantastic Quotes

"Mere color, unspoiled by meaning, and anallied with definite form, can speak to the soul in a thousand ways" 
– Oscar Wilde

"Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not"

My wife shared these quotes with me today, which I find profound.

ASketch Doodle

ASketch is a procedural sketching app that generates some shading based on interaction between current and previous sketch lines. You can see such effect in this drawing and the previous one I posted. I am really liking this app for doing pencil like sketches.

I have started sketching again after a long time. And it feels really good. Thanks to my lovely and kind wife for a great gift(ipad) and inspiring me to post :)

Storyboard: Inventing a Place

Here are a couple of drawings that I did as part of my story-boarding class during Spring'07 at SCAD. We had to come up with a rough story concept and design an imaginary place for that idea. It is very difficult to design something without any reference at all. The best thing to do is to study references for all or some elements of the environment and add your creativity to it. References help making the environment more believable when all the elements are put together. Hence it is very important to study real life references, be it a drawing or an animation piece.

Message from Remote Planet?

Still alive and blogging, just not on this blog. After I finished my studies I moved to Norway and I have been busy with my job and other projects on side. Unfortunately not much related with the art side of animation. To which I will get back once I have reached specific milestones for my current projects. If you want to check what I am upto you can check my other blogs.
