MCAHNY nom nom nom


To all the millions of invisible followers of my blog, MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR! If this is gonna be the last post of the year then...well..heck have some cake and celebrate it.

Norma Jeane Mortenson



The is a rework of a painting of Marilyn Monroe that I had done about 2 years ago. Despite the monumental effort it took me back then,there were a few things about the painting that always bugged me. So finally I took some time off to rework on it in great detail. I wanted to test out some things I had learnt painting the skin and hair after last week's Tyrion painting. The lighting ,facial features,the backdrop and the over all colour balance were a few of the things I paid attention to this time around. Went for a vintage painting feel as well. Marylin doesnt sport her classic iconic look in this pic and therefore its hard to recognize her by face. The pose and outdoor setting were challenging and I took my own sweet time with it as it was a lot of fun.


Here is a link to the old painting, it was pretty sad but still you can check it out.

The Half-man


“Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.”

To All My Teachers



There is a lot I wish I could tell my teachers if I meet them again. Teachers from pre-school, nursery school, school, college and every other walk of life. Many of them I might not meet ever again, even if I do I may not remember their names, many more are faces that float in and out of my reveries and many many more I have, I must confess, I have forgotten. Its a sad thing, but its true.

So on this teachers day, let me just lose myself once again in those memories,let me relive once again those moments that I may only glimpse in my dreams. A small token of love to all my wonderful teachers and for all the goodness they've brought into this world.

Setting the Stage



A promotional visual for this theatre group,called Tanariri, started by my friend Neeraja. Plan to make more such pieces borrowing quotes from famous actors (with theatre history). Starting off with the great Sir Ben Kingsley.

Freedom of Spirit


“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

Through The Looking Glass



Finally nailed the treatment for the BG plates. This was done using acrylic paint and then working it over digitally.The final look of the film would now just include the characters(whose colours have a different approach)  in front of these plates and some final AE  touch ups during compositing.

If all goes well there wont be any more changes to this look and now its just a matter of executing it in every scene.Hope all the scenes hold up with this treatment.Ah well too many uncertain things,too many things to hope and pray for and  so less time to execute all of it.

Just the way I like it ;).
