"Don't do that Buttercup!"
Bongo is always keen to pose for the camera
Buttercup at the helm
A heavy colony of 'summer shower' growing on our walls
Buttercup always keeps an eye out for visitors at the gate
'Summer shower' it is
Buttercup in all her glory
A retreat into shady pastures
Guess who is in charge?
The bountiful Incas
The past four months at home have been like a retreat into my childhood days. Almost like a long vacation that I never had in the last 11 years. The whole experience has humbled me and made me reach even deeper for my roots and family ties. From cool foggy mornings, to cosy family campfires, I shall always remember these days, particularly waking up with my dogs snuggling next to me amidst an ocean of blankets. Pure winter bliss. As I get ready for another giant leap and make a nose-dive back into city-life, I thought I would share with you, little glimpses of what my life has been like for the last four months.
P.S.- I learned a great deal of gardening this time, so you shall have to bear with an outburst of marigold incas in this post! :)

Terryl Whitlatch's character designs have always fascinated me, particularly the way she inculcates the smallest details into her work. It is of no surprise that her animal anatomy drawing skills make a budding artist like me envious. After browsing for what seemed like hours, I finally discovered her wonderful book up for sale. Imagine my excitement. :)

Waiting for Adobe Premier Pro to render footage always takes its toll on me, so I drew this creature in the meantime. :)

As the film is nearing its completion, I am beckoned by the thrilling world of vfx and compositing which adobe after effects has acquainted me with. So I have decided that I shall devote a small portion of this week to generate different ideas for the title sequence of the film. When I first began compositing, the whole exercise seemed extremely tedious to me, but over the last few months I have started to appreciate the marvels that it is known to produce, often effortlessly. I would really like your feedback on these small test shots that I have uploaded. :)
