Good Attitude....Dialogue animation

A rough dialogue animation test I worked on at home for practice. dialogue source: www.animationmeat.com
Felt good to work with an x-sheet after a while!

Rough scene animation...

Animation

Well...being true to myself and the title of this blog... it is animation that I love doing the most and I'm getting started on doing some mini home projects...

So I'm sharing with you a few quick animation tests I did at home some took half an hour some took a couple.. so they're pretty rough but felt awesome to do some traditional animation again!

Colours..and HE-MAN!!!




Finally working on the computer ... I've started playing with colour again. I know I'm not the best with handling colours yet.. especially in terms of choosing the right colours.. but I do enjoy rendering it and creating the shadows, highlits etc.. I hope to get better at it with practice and here's some of this kind of work I wanted to share with you...

I made the he-man illustration for a friend of mine at work and it was really nostalgic just drawing the most powerful man in the universe after a LONG time!

Cintiq ROCKS!!!




About 2 months back, I bought the Wacom Cintiq tablet. OOh man am I glad to have made that purchase!!!
Here are some doodles drawn with the tablet... hope you like them..

When I started working here in France, we had to attend some mandatory French classes for some months... which basically meant more doodling... haha... so it's all these various little moments that I could sketch in.. and on the metro back home.. that you get to see here.. I hope you like them.. please do leave me any comments.. critisisms are always welcome too! ;)

Life drawings






Some great people here at Ankama arrange for life drawing sessions regularly...
Here are some quick sketches from some of these sessions....

Apologies for the blogging sabbatical!

Hey Guys...
I moved to France in April 2009 and have been happily working as a flash Animator at Ankama Animations. Ever since then, I've just been working and resting at home on the weekends. Admittedly I've been doing some sketches every now and then but had been lazy to be uploading them...

I think I'm now comfortable taking some time out and do some work at home on the weekends and keep posting it. I'm posting some sketches from then to date.. just a few that I did find and felt I could upload.

I sincerely hope to be regular from now on and hope you like my work...
