I was waiting at a place today, when I saw the derelict wall nearby. The wall was crumbling and held at some places with steel wires. Some vines and grass was growing out of it.
Found this site interesting! So did this quick 30 mins pen and ink sketch.
Today I went for outing with my family in a resort near a dam. I was sitting on a bench near the dam water, looking at this beautiful view, captured this in my little sketchbook in an hour or so.
Pigma micron pens on paper.
Mukkam Post Dhanori is a Marathi movie released last week all over Maharashtra state of India. Some months ago, the creators of this movie approached me with a proposal of doing some paintings to be used in 2D animation sequences of this movie. Now I am publishing these paintings after the movie is released.
The first sequence was of a flashback, where the leading lady of the movie, Pooja, describes a historical event in which the British masters ruling India were stealing treasures from the ancient temples of India. This was done in multiple layers to facilitate animation.
She also describes a band of Indian freedom fighters called ‘Dakkhanache Fakade’ (The Bravehearts of Decaan), who worked on preventing the British from stealing these treasures by removing them from temples and entrusting them to someone elderly from the village.
I did the above as a concept first, and was penciled by another artist, inked and colored by me.
The picture of this sentry on the left was my favorite, but it never made to the final cut :-(.
Scene 2 started with a character pushing the other character on stairs.
Then the person thrown down wakes up in a dense jungle, and wanders around, lost.
Then he becomes part of the jungle, even killing wolves for lunch. Part of the penciling was handled by another artist here.
The last of the above frames never made it to the final cut.
It was a great experience working with team MPD, seeing the making of a movie in action. Hoping this is only a beginning of a long journey :-).
