Old spider and the fly

February 26, 2009


Long back I’d this thumbnails and un finished watercolor  for a hypothetical childrens illustration with a common concept of freindship between a predator and prey i.e here it’s an old spider in nostalgia with a little fly. It was untouched for months and below it comes finished.


Now comes just the characters without the back ground


And last, the details




Rips from my Break

February 25, 2009

I’d a week long break as walked across , up and down the hills and hillocks of a little beautiful town in Kerala called Kanjirapalli with lush green   rubber, banana, cocoa, teak and pineappple plantations acros the hills. As my eyes caught up with beautiful little houses, streets mainly across  the rubber plantations, people looking onto us with strange eyes, the wintage bunglows, the Churches, busy Fathersand pilgrims.   I ripped them into my little sketch book before that day’s sleep and here they are…

A meet in Paradise

I was browsing through my old works..and I came upon this.. A wedding gift for one of my school mates and one of my earliest digital paintings.


SCI FI Cupids

February 6, 2009

Valentine – love – venus – cupids.. common things that came across when asked to do a Valentine emailer header illustration.

Boticelli and Cabanel’s works came across my mind. But the physical sense of Cabanel’s paintings struck me more. Salutes to Alexandre Cabanel!


My thoughts romed over the classics when suddenly it dashed on tthis idea of aking just the cupids with a futuristic look.  Here are initial sketches and study for sci fi cupids retaining  the classical  body features and just added the gadgets.


Here are thumbnails for guns and jet pack.. just to get the feel from all views with cute features.

Here comes the compostion thumbnails.  There was a discussion on grids and golden mean and tried to apply  the little cupids it along the golden spiral with large one to the left. Surely it I’ve gone wrong but felt good to try them.


Here is the details and final one
