came across some awesome stuff yesterday nyt which has kept me awake till now. First up was an awesome reel which i saw on youtube. Then there was the article on inspiration over at spungella. And the grand daddy of em all the news of Stephen’s Free Tutorship Programme.
Its gona b awesome.
lets keep our fingers crossed.
here’s the update on the pantomime:
first of all, changed the way he held the ball. checked the arcs. and workin a bit on the eyes and accentuated the pondering look he had on his face just before he examines the ball. Understood a lot more things i sudnt do in the future, but its kinda hard to avoid them.

drop by a comment if u feel like.
The maquette i was working on still needs lots of work. And the best part is ild hav to do the thing all over, coz we didnt hav a good reference and that created some unsolvable problems. But m still gonna finish this one n get an understanding of how to polish the stuff. Pics of the making of it in a few days..

Yup, Planning, Planning, PLANNING.
So many times ive been told to plan things out and its been said in all the resource available over the net, that i thought i should make a mental note for myself. N thats y this post.
Better late than never, i guess. It not that i didnt plan my anims b4. I didnt plan it enough. I was always more anxious to jump in n start animating. And i guess thats why it took me a such a lont time to finish the turn, becoz i myself wasnt sure abt how the final anim should look. I remember gettin up from my chair n turning around in the room, whenever i got stuck. IT HAPPENED SO MANY TIMES!! Dad caught me a few times, turning around the computer, when he woke up at nyt. heh.
Hopefully, i stick to my senses n do more of planning from now on. Pretty soon Planning wud b my middle name.. :D . Its always fun to dream.
k then ive spent enough of my time over this post. M planning to plan my shot now.
finally its done.. took a while.. but got there at last.. the splinin on sack helped a lot!
check out CadaCosa aka the turn.. n lemme know wat u think..
hehe funny, howmuch rant Amrit, Prash, Vinod, Nanda, Ratman, Naveen n Ranbir had to put up while i was playing this bad boy.. its definetly the baddest boy ive had so far!!
k so on to a new exercise now..
its somethin m thoroughly excited abt!
plus there’s a deadline for that! coool..
leave a comment.. or else..
m starting to like noodles..

will put it up online once m done wit it.. that is in the next few hours..
