An Interview with the Graphic Artist: Siddhant Pal

The earliest memories of Siddhant’s life are fused with the sweet smell of nostalgia. Peacock and snakes of Bhilwada and visiting grandpa (who promised his inheritance of incredible pencils collection to one who follows art). The first time he bunked school was in per-nursery when he chose to eat Monaco biscuit and cry at the bus stop.

Q. Tell us a little about your education.

Siddhant: Most of my schooling was done in the holy gateway of Haridwar. Then I started pursuing BTech at College of Engineering (Rookie) as a day scholar. 2nd year was a time of terrible emotional distress for me as I lost my grandfather. My beloved architect was gone. Things made a little less sense now. I got disillusioned with my studies. I started experimenting with art by copying sketches. I had no idea about graphic art yet used my free time to dab in After Effects.

Q. How did your BTech college react to your art sidetrack?

Siddhant: I became their poster boy. In other words I became the go-to guy for all pamphlets and posters.  I even got to barter art for marks. I remember working on an art project for my teachers in lieu for viva grades.

Q. When did you get your professional training in graphic designing?

Siddhant: In the 3rd year of my college I joined Arena Multimedia in Dehradun to learn After Effects, Illustrator and 3D Rendering. Under the guidance of one of my teachers, I developed a keen interest in motion graphics.

Q. How has your experience been at Brainpan Studio so far?

Siddhant: When I came for my interview, the studio was in midst of a party and I was greeted by Troy (the Doberman). I was required to create an infographic. The environment was exhilarating and still is. I am trying to gauge the culture still. I love that we have a common language to talk in and no one ever feels left out.

Q. What kind of growth do you see in yourself?

Siddhant: I have started using the pen tablet. I am learning a great deal from Moon (COO). I love the system of freedom and experimentation that lies at the core of this space. Storyboard opened up my scope. I am gaining a good understanding of what I know and how I can develop my skills.

Q. Where do you see yourself in future?

Siddhant: I want to be in animation and learn how characters work. I want to become a part of a team that works through the various stages of creation.

Q. What is graphic art?

Siddhant: It is beyond imagination. Understanding software helps me engage better. In a creative industry, the lifestyle breaks free from the strict structure of the corporate. I have realised that different people have different perspective towards art.

Q. Do you have any last words to share?

Siddhant: I believe in positive attitude towards life and enhancing my skill every day.

Why do Most Ideas Fail?

Sometimes even the most brilliant of ideas fail to inspire. The idea may come to you in a thunderstorm or in a tea cup. It may land on your doorsteps in a wicker basket or float as a cloud as you look up. It may come rowing in a paper boat or maybe dug up from an ancient burial.

Yet an idea may fuse, may rot, maybe forgotten. If it is denied. If it is ignored. If it fails to sparkle, it dies a silent perpetual death. And then is locked forever in the dark recesses of the basement of ideas.

Concept Art: The Fall of Tartarus

Tartarus has witnessed the rise and the fall of many civilizations. It has been the cradle and the grave to many a brave and many a sullied. The origins of the warrior race of the NeonGuards is deeply entwined with the history of Tartarus. Once fortified by a thousand turrets and guarded by the NeonBlasters, it is today the land of the scavengers. The secrets of the old trees and the chants of the high priests of Arhat are now lost forever in a background of treachery and revenge.

The priests of Arhat left the planet immediately when the ever greedy MainFramers sent their miners to work in their sacred lands. But long before the collapse of the Mainframe, before the rise of the NeonGuards, before the miners were abandoned, before the shipbuilders of NuyerXelta, the land of Tartarus was the last of Nature’s refuse. It was initiated as a balance to the mechanical world. Nothing of that world exists anymore.

Tartarus is now the graveyard of the forsaken and the home to the lost.
