    seems like i've been missed out..
    doesnt matter,cause im gonna fill this string up...and someday my heroes at massive black are gonna see this.

    Please do walk in..please..please.. and do shout inside..

    the following ones are also connected to the 'indian gods and godesses sketchbook'...
    Except the fifth one-"Kapali"...thats my own character from my upcoming graphic novel.
    If things fall in right at the right place and right time,im gonna get some funding to get it printed and ofcourse some money to fly over to COMICON..
    all my fingers are crossed...

    The sixth one is about a recent news i heard about this unpaid 'kathakali 'artist who went on a hunger strike...
    this costume -"pacha" always depict a calm character...
    but i just added a bit of anger in his eyes-tribute to the unpaid artist..!!

    so ..enjoy!!!

    Time for a change -"Baddies cometh!!"

    Im gonna put in a couple of baddies this time
    Shakuni - from mahabharath ..the evil uncle who twists the story with the deadly loaded dice game.

    Asuras- my own take on the extremes of their clan character.

    Vikramaditya & Vetal - not baddies but this is fun..
    the story of the wise king and the thousand riddles of a wrethched wise ghost.
    Its my stylised take on the topic..
    really love this old school kerala mural derivation..

    (sigh)
    I still see nobody around.

    Hope you like these ones..
    pls visit and please do shout something..
    please

    mate your lines are so fresh and alive! i love it! those colours make them have an otherworldly quality thanks for stopping by my sketchbook, im surprised you stopped on the silhouettes, they were very very basic (and a long time ago..) and i feel i've improved somewhat since i can see your SB is new, even though you've been around for a fair while - i'll definitely be back to check up on your shenanigans

    Seriously nice looseness and style to your linework, I must say! Especially in those last few b+w pieces; really loving the wise king + ghost pic, lovely stuff.
    Great use of colour too; I really like the first pic of Shiva, good mood captured there...
    Look forwards to more!
    it occurs to me that both my emotions and reactions are ill-placed.

    snake women... and more..

    Hiya guys,

    DStraX
    Stoph
    Mr.Jack
    ... thank you guys for the support... and your most valuable comments
    Im comin up with more..

    Asuras - a bit of a character development study...
    I've got SHUKRACHARYA..
    According to legend he is a renegade sage ... the guru of the demon clan.

    Snake women - Ha..My fave stuff. It was believed that rivals used these seductruses to lure ,poison and kill kings. Known for their astonishing dance skills, I just merged their personality with their form.
    Result? a couple of snake women.
    Dunno why that lady on bottom left is so pissed off...guess she was expecting a bigger stinger..

    And lastly 'The new court dancer' - the king's latest obsession.

    Everybody is welcome.
    come in and shout.
    seeyasoon...

    Wow, super lively lines and speed coloring!
    I'd love to see full scenes from the stories of the Mahabharata and other tales.
    Are pages of your comic project visible somewhere?

    very cool stuff!
    I really like how dynamic your linework is; full of energy and life.
    I like where you're going with these characters. I'd love to see some of them taken to a higher level of polish

    hey animo!
    lovely line and color; a great whealth of different faces and characatures here. I think some characters could benefit from a low/high camera angle, like the guy with the loaded dice. but other then that I couldnt think of any crit if I kept trying

    ooh yeah; did you know I'm a certified art-teacher? that's right. everything arty I say has been endorsed by the state of the Netherlands! (they'll be sorry soon)

    I like the last one, it's full of energy and swooshy lines. Just a tip, if you make eveything that saturated, it is difficult to make something look very saturated because we compare the saturation with the surrounding colours. Also, I like more of a painterly approach and paying attention to silhouettes and form. I did a qiuck paintover JUST for fun, there's nothing wrong with your piece...I'm just bored and wanted to show an other approach (more realistic-cartoonish style):

    Keep it up

    thank you for your comments and tips...

    ashes...
    i will surely be doing stuff with changing angle..since these were more of character explorations, i preffered the angle to remain flat on face..
    i will be preparing a lot of stuff with dynamic cameras..
    thanks for being in and keep looking for more..

    Zelda_geek..

    wow..
    i liked that one really cool stuff..
    im so happy that my work was actually 'redone' by somebody..you just honoured me..thank you..
    i see that you have a point there..
    well ..there is actually a reason with the saturation thing..
    if you have observed theres a bit of 'loudness' associated with our culture.i was just trying to mimic them.its all there in our folk artforms to even the truck makeover bodyart...
    but the point is a point...i will surely be taking good care of it...

    buy hey..did i loose one star? OMG..gotta work hard to get it back..

    keep commenting guys.thanks for the support

    Actually the color 'loudness' is very interesting.
    It has magic, but also its logic and readability.
    I particularly like how you exploit it in skin tones.
    Looking forward to your comic and your epic scenes!
