I submitted something on time

Which never happened to me before, I think. Hence, the reason why I don't normally enter contests. Anyway, DA has this Freeze Frame Contest where you have to pause a scene from a movie and draw it. I did this scene from Zombieland:

After Rashi advised me to use halftone, this is how the final thing looks:

Study breaks

This is what I scribbled when I didn't want to read, sleep or work on that DA contest. Also, there is some old stuff too.

Clean and color them when i take a break again.

Short holiday

Unfortunately I haven't pulled my life together yet. Of course, I'm the one at fault here, but luckily, I've stopped looking for faults in everything. Sooo, this means we go back to the study lamp with a bunch of notes and books and little not-so-neat sketches in the margins of lined paper. But, this time, the sketching will not stop. No sirree. ;D

And yay for comparisons!

Just for fun

I'm uploading a WIP image I saved while I was working on The Date. Because I like my pencil strokes. Also, up next: the Creature Feature Picture Series, where I will correctly draw an assortment of Arthropods and Molluscs that I studied in Zoology. I've also come up with an idea for a short comic.

This is going to be a long post

No really, you'll be scrolling down a lot. Before I begin, I'll tell you that the following project took two nights of preliminary sketching (once the idea was fully conceived inside The Head of Moi) and three days of cleaning, coloring and re-doing things (after the image was scanned). I blame some neurotic disorder I may have for this. This is my first story drawn in panels (as in, with a beginning, a middle and an end). Enjoy.

Inspired by a trip to Pizza Hut with my brother. We had... lets see, soup with garlic bread, that cheesy-bites pizza that I love and finally, a chocolate chip cookie sundae. ^_^ Boy were, we full.

Today was a really really bad day. But now its fine. Last night I drew something like 'Dusting', like a sequence of panels, and I was feeling really proud this morning when I sat down to clean and color it. But, uh, that didn't last long. Halfway through cleaning I realized I should be studying and then in a moment of feeling responsible, I paused and checked online for a form that I'm supposed to fill. I realized the last date to buy the form has passed already and I totally freaked out. For about two hours, I was panicked-ly calling all those people I know who are interested in the NET exam. No one had news, those who could get any said they can only tell by evening.

After some time, I explained to myself that there is nothing to worry about, and my brain, docile as it is, gave in and I felt really tired and almost fell asleep watching this Shashi Kapoor movie on 9X  called Junoon. Finally, I was told through a flurry of sms's from all my friends at once (thanks people, I love you all) that the forms haven't been released yet. ^_^

At around the same time in the evening, I realized that I forgot to visit my friend Hina for Eid. >_> Yes, a week after Eid.

So I went to see her. Poor girl. >.> When I got back, my sister was asleep, and I ate a plate-full of spaghetti while trying to wake her up. When she refused to get up, I asked her if I drew something for her, would she? She said OK.

And hence, I drew this:

She's singing 'I Can't Decide' by the Scissor Sisters. ;D

Breaking news!

Rashi C colored up Dusting!!! And it looks AWESOME SHMAWESOME!!! Check it out:

And I did some quick coloring too!! ^_^

Here's what I did:

Day 2


Don't have much to say except I'm very tired today. Also had some people who came over at our place. :) I think my breakfast was too spicy for me. <_< I'm thinking thats why I feel heartburn. Which is another word for acidity, I think, so don't panic. O_O

Anyway, scroll down for today's sketches. ^_^ Today's work was mostly focused on poses and postures.

How hand-some!

Maybe the shirt got a little lifted too high. ^^'

OK, I wanted this to be a natural pose but it looks like she's posing.
Nice twin, mean twin. >_>

This gave me some very good ideas. ;D

Thank you!

Here again

I call this one 'Dusting'.

So I had this old blog here, and I didn't like the title it had. It was kinda, from pre-historic times when I used to watch this lame anime and make music videos. So this is the new blog. Love for the new blog. 

The purpose here is to draw everyday and put it up. ^_^ Also brainstorm some other things while I'm still here. I'll mostly be writing about what happens around me and what I'm up to. It may or may not include art work. I may generally criticize things or may make fun of them. 

Well, I think the first post doesn't really matter because no one's going to be reading it anyway. So there. Till the next post, here's some things that will define this blog better:
I may be getting better at dancing.

Drew this after I watched 'A funny thing happened on the way to the forum'.

If you know better, you'll ignore whats going on on the top of her head.

Ah, solitude in bed. Utter bliss.

Work is all play? You don't say.
Maybe I should wait till winter to color this one.
