Christmas for All

Even the broken pieces of your world are the building blocks of your life. A silence left between the spaces and memories of a time. A crack in your rear view mirror and hollow in your song. You lose the birds of your soul yet you never lose your heart.

This Christmas mend the cracks with gold (never to hide), soften  your view and smile. Remember for all that we lose, we don’t look back in anger. We are the glimmering stars of this universe. Christmas for all. Christmas for hope and wonder.

Notes on Character Animation

Neropure_14_July_C_3

Character animation is the art of endowing a personality to a character according to the tasks at hand using the guiding principles of animation.”
Moon Arun (COO)

Fast 1080 30 V7_3

“The most important element of character animation is rhythm. The upper movement of a body should align with the lower body movements. The primary action should be woven seamlessly with the secondary action.

We must pay special attention to the shift in the environment due to the changing motion of the characters. These small details matter.”
Aayushi Sharma (Animator)

“Real world reference videos are helpful in replicating the same movements in the fictional environment. Recording motion or referring to Youtube videos are great sources towards logical understanding.

And of course timing and spacing are important nuances to focus on.”
Himanshu Bassi (Animation)

Influence of Traveling on Art

We are working professionals with a heart in the wild. Traveling inspires us and helps us bring the added creative nuance and subtlety to our studio work. A foray back into the idyll homeland brings newer stories and bridges the conflicting worlds.

Stepping outside the concrete walls, enables us to gain unique perspective into the process. And thus help us SIMPLIFY COMPLEXITY.

Notice the INFLUENCE after Moon‘s October Assam visit.

Character Norms

A character is an embodiment of a personality. It has facets that underline all its key elements. A character has a past and a destiny. It has an inherent story. It encompasses a visual language that entails a narrative. A character is a bearer of motifs.

“A to G of Digital Concept Art” by Moon Arun

21742893_1135296843271607_2819487310577871207_n

A. IDEA:
An idea could be anything from this world or beyond; it could be real or unreal. It could be a figment of your imagination. Or the exact crown on the statue of liberty. But it needs to be built upon. Similarities studied, flaws discarded. The science behind the spark needs to be pondered upon. An idea may come to you in your dreams. To see how the idea plays out, you need to execute accordingly.

B. RESEARCH:
Search and find out the realm of possibility. The existence of your idea and its validity. Research enables you to look at your idea logically. It shows you if your imagination has merit and if the magic is indeed bona fide.

C. REFERENCES:
Filter your idea through references. Ideate to make it stronger. Clear out your doubts, work out the plausibility. Infuse your idea with a visual language. Test it against the existing worlds. Maximize your idea with a plurality of inputs.

D. ROUGH SKETCHES:
Your first sketch is not your final sketch. There are many views to an idea, many perspectives, many shades, and many interpretations. Work with different styles and compositions. There will be many versions of your idea. Choose the one that holds true to your rhythm. Choose the one that resonates.

E. CHOOSE AND START DETAILING (GREYSCALE/COLOUR/LIGHTING):
Choose the best doodle. Work with proper fundamentals in composition, anatomy, rule of thirds and perspective. After defining the outlines or contour lines start with blocking. A greyscale shows you the overall picture. It enables you to realize how your idea will eventually pan out. Colour helps you set the mood and the age of the scene. It helps showcase the time and the era and the setting. Lighting sets the frame. It builds the environment. It helps you highlight elements and it gives the special touch to your idea. A scifi sketch and a historical sketch can be altered just by the use of lighting.

F. DON’T BE AFRAID TO START A NEW SKETCH:
Art is a perfection of your expression. Until you are able to depict your idea in its most intimate and extravagant details, don’t accept. Don’t get too possessive of your arcs and shades. Don’t compromise on your idea. Remember you are refining your own self with every new sketch. Reboot and restart.

G. CREATE SOMETHING IMPORTANT:
The age of mediocrity ended with the age of nobility. As a creator you are endowed with the ability to achieve greatness. Don’t become a Disney stooge. Look into the horizon to step outside the narrow boxes. Don’t trace heroes, create universes. Create something important. Create something that will fight the passing of time and leave a mark for eternity.
