Illustration for Joydhaak - July 2014

This is an illustration that I've worked on for a story for the new issue of Joydhaak. It is a touching story of a meeting between a street dog and a beggar girl and their sharing of a meal found on the road.

Steampunk! - 2





Steampunk!

"Steamboy" is a film that I won't be forgetting anytime soon. These are some sketches that I worked on which are very influenced by the film. I will be putting up a few more explorations and a coloured illustration in a couple of days.

Tantrics of Old - Book Cover

I recently had the pleasure of illustrating the book cover for my friend, Krishnarjun Bhattacharya's debut novel "Tantrics of Old". It is a dystopian narrative, set in Kolkata, India, where demons roam free and angels rise from their ashes.



The book is set to be launched on the 30th of May, 2014. I wish him the very best. The pre-order links are up on flipkart :  http://www.flipkart.com/tantrics-of-old/p/itmdvzw8qufnjggz?pid=9788172345228

"Noh"


I have been lately watching a bit of anime on the side and couldn't resist trying out animating an action sequence of my own. I created a character called "Noh" who is a ninja who dons a Japanese theatre Noh mask. I've always found "Noh" masks pretty creepy due to the absence of humanity in the character's faces. Here are some stills of the film given below:



       


   


                           
Getting feedback from friends and family while working is very beneficial, especially in an endeavour such as this, wherein this being a personal project, it would have failed to take into account the audience who might be viewing it later. I changed the colour scheme and a number of shots even after I had completed animating them, based on feedbacks from my friends, Krishnarjun Bhattacharya and Shravan Arvind, and also my family.
