illustrator me

hey guys!! i guess this is where i draw the line (literally that is!)!

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!). :)

Weight Reference

Hi guys

Just to post about a small progress towards the weight exercise.A few stills from my reference video.Its not in any specific order.Of course the object in the animation will be much more heavier than what i've used for reference.So i will have to exaggerate a lot.The external energy working on the weight seems to be a tricky stuff to take reference.Gotta plan more.But anyways,something for a first step ;)
