Concept Art: Ship Erebus

Reality is a construct and we are the master constructors. Our ever shifting reality is also our ever evading magnum opus. When finally our dream on Earth broke, we woke up in the womb of Ship Erebus.

The Early Risers invoked the Code of Tabula Rasa. To protect the space civilization from the disease of melancholia, a clean stale was infused. All memory of the dream was erased. Earth was abolished. Human life as we once knew was denied existence and quietly forgotten. Ship Erebus is the only valid reality now. Many call it the Cavity. A never-ending elongated space surrounded on the four sides by the ship. Erebus is our world and our only home.

What is Illustration?

The term ‘illustration‘ comes from the Latin word illustra’tio, illu’stro meaning enlighten, irradiate. In sense it an attempt at provocation. It is an invitation to an another world. A world twice removed from reality. It is at the same time real and unreal. Sometimes it triggers a memory and at other times it takes one on a trip to building newer ships to sail to brave new worlds. It is a story delineated in lines. It is a tale of the known and the unknown, the familiar and the strange.

Illustration illuminates. It enlightens.

Concept Art: The Museum of Zelta Sphere 7

Though most of the FaerieWings of the Mech Angels perished in the fire of Vean Nostrada, few of these illusive ships now hold place in the Museum of Zelta Sphere 7. These ancient vehicles share space with other obsolete creations like Spiger IX of Okagen, Trapula Exc of Ciplo and Trepods of El Zone XII.


This concept art started with line art. It emphasises the character, building and the artist’s intention. The outline and form is foregrounded over colour, shading and texture. Line art is usually traced over the scanned sketch. Then using copicmarker, colour is applied. And then photoshop is used to add light.

What are Infographics?

Infographics are the visual representations of information in a succinct and attractive manner. It clearly conveys the information in a progressive and an easy way.

In the age of ever diminishing attention span, vast amount of text is highly unlikely to gather a big audience. Infographics on the other hand, makes information fun and memorable through graphical representation. The adage, “A picture speaks a thousand words” speaks true.

Audience are more likely to engage with the visual media rather than read through corpus of text. Infographics creates a precise world for the audience to interact. It takes less time of the audience and have high recall value.

Thursday Morning at the Studio

The workflow at the studio is quite elaborate yet it works seamlessly because of our understanding of each others’ strengths and weaknesses, our mental stamina and our building blocks. No member is an island. No idea is ignored.

The process:

The creative director comes up with the concept and frames the dialogues.

The graphic artist designs the characters and draws up the storyboard.

The script is sent to the voice over artist.

The animator breathes in the magic portion.

Life infused.


The notable musician and friend from the Jazz-funk quartet “Afterglow”, Shivam joins us at the studio on his birthday. Making music is much more than just playing the instrument. A musician must take part in all aspects of the journey of creation and dissemination. A music video is a child nurtured.

Shivam puts on his producer’s cap to give us feedback on Afterglow’s upcoming music videos.

The Nymphs of OldFate (Fantasy Art)

Scamira was determined not to be late to school again. Madam Zazoori was succinct in her warning. She would have to wear the false hat as a punishment. But yet again she spent the night in the toadstool circle playing with the gnomes. She forgot her charms and potion pot.

She lives on the other side of the Oreva canal in the castle town of Oldfate. It is a part of the last forest of Yearning. Songs of the Nymphs still wander the starry nights. She is studying to become a purple witch but it has been inordinately difficult for her. She can’t recall most spells and the last frog she kissed died of poisoning. Yet she is determined. The old prophesy foresees.

(To be continued…)

Adventure of Baba Toon in Funky Town

Last time when Baba Toon graced us with his presence, he told us about the mystical process of animation. He guided us through the mystery of motion graphics and then blessed us with the secret tools of the trade.

After a month on the spiraling clouds and meditating on the moving peaks, he is back in the funky town. This time, he carries his bag of ideas to enlighten us about the need of animation in this mortal world. Join us as we wonder and wander with Baba Toon.

Watch this adorable whiteboard animation showing the “Adventure of Baba Toon in the Funky Town“. Feedback needed to feed the Pandoras.
