Fanart for Neil Gaiman's American Gods

I love American Gods by Neil Gaiman and had done this some time back after I'd finished reading it This is the scene where Zorya Polunochnaya picks the moon and gives the protagonist, Shadow , a coin.

Some of the stuff I did this year

Kurkure Monster Paws Ad

Live action+ animation ad by Studio Eeksaurus. 
I worked on storyboards and animated the monster from the shot where he's waiting around a door till the end. Fun. So much fun!!!

Figuring out how to integrate the 2d and flash animation(Clean up, colour and inking in Flash as well as most of the animation) with the live action took some headscratching the 3D department was a live saver :)

Let's see if longer cuts of it get online soon.

Studio Eeksaurus - Payback

Okay I am making up for lost time by putting up all the work I am allowed to show now.
This is an ad for Payback done some time ago, animated mostly in Flash. Each person in the 2D team worked on almost every shot since there are so many characters!

Granny Dance Off

Here's something from Studio Eeksaurus. It's for Jumpin, a mango drink and this is for their Nani VS Nani dance off. It's a dance off between two grannies and viewers are supposed to vote on who should continue into the next round.
This project was at first mostly something the studio interns worked on(dance moves, storyboard, character design, animation etc), but the 2D team jumped in later(some of the animation, colour, look and feel, clean up, colour, compositing etc).
I animated the curtain in the intro, Shanti tucking in her sari pallu in Shot 03, Julie tossing the thermometer in her mouth and the side to side neck moves in shot 12 and the end tag , and Julie mocking Shanti with the whole wave on the nose thing.
The song is a remix of an old  1960 Bollywood classic song  "Nani teri morni ko mor le gaye",
Translation : Granny, peacocks took your peahen(er sidenote.. that's what you call the female, right?) away. 

Ok, that sounds weird when translated into English :)

No doodle but a prophesy

News from the future - 1 January 2013

Mentally unhinged supreme ruler of the world Anamika Baruah inaugurates New Year's Celebrations with an intergalaxy twist dancing contest and a really long evil laugh that echoed a bit.

Highlights included the new world anthem sung by the dictator's goat army, a 100 m baby crawling dash and guests being served drinks by the planet's penguins who finally revealed this year that they are actually people in costumes.

In accordance with new laws everyone greeted the new year with furious synchronised head banging and the great leader had tears of pride and joy in her eyes as she said, " Snowflakes, dandruff, what's the difference?
