My first lipsync!!

Well got some free time today so thought of doing a lipsync! We aren't taught lipsync as yet (will be done next sem) but I thought I'd try my hand at it anyway! So I recorded my own voice and animated Hogan to it! Although it's a miniature monologue, but still it was AWESOME animating it!! I feel so much refreshed after doing this!! I know there are some mistakes, but I just wanted to try it out and get the feel of it! I was ECSTATIC to see Hogan finally talking!! Check it out!

Jump and weight lift

Hey guys this is a jump assignment given to us. It shouldn't have been more than 10 secs long, but then I took the liberty of stretching it to 30 secs!! I almost killed myself doing this, because I had to finish this in 2 weeks!! Well although I'm not 100% satisfied with all of it, I still very much enjoyed this exercise! Do check it out and pour in your C&C!


And here's my weight lift exercise. It's probably my weakest work, because of the overwhelming experience of having to get used to constraint parents and stuff!! Was quite an ordeal! :(

Body mechanics (basics)

Hey guys! I'm in my second semester of animation and it's SUPERCOOL!! Getting to learn about body mechanics! It's so interesting!! Well these are some of the basic exercises we got to do, and it was so cool working on them! This rig ROCKS! Do give in your C&C!

My characters so far


Hey guys this is a collection of the characters I've created so far! Sloppy when it comes to drawing females eh? Workin' on them!

Fanatic

Hey guys this is my second 3D project named 'Fanatic'. Also done in Takshaa, it was a joint venture by me and two other awesomely talented guys : Prahalad and Pratyush! It was done for our CG advanced course. I was responsible for the character design, storyboard, modeling of the kid, designing the posters and the comic, sound editing and animation.



EDIT: Woohoo!! Aniboom uploaded this film on their YouTube channel and it's got more than 85,000 views!! Here's the link! Thanks Aniboom!

Fanatic concept art (kinda)



A small little concept art (kinda) for my clip 'Fanatic'. It's hand-drawn and painted in Photoshop. Might add that this is my first painting in Photoshop!!

My dad's new spaceship

This is my first ever 3D clip done for intro to CG project in Takshaa, Bangalore. I've used Toon shaders because my deadline was kinda creeping up on me and UV unwrapping would have taken up half of my lifetime!!




Here are some sketches of the character:

My first work to appear on a banner!!





Yay! My first work to appear on a banner!! :D

I was working on this with two of my very talented friends Sabhya and Vinitha for a playschool in Bangalore. Was fun designing the characters, and now, after seeing them on the banner, I find an even greater joy!! :D
