Light a candle and fight against terrorism





Hey folks,
Another dark day in the history of our country after a terrible terror attack in mumbai. I was shocked seeing all these events on television. Think about the people who suffered and lost lives with this outrageous event . Damn, we Indians have to unite and fight this terrorism once in for all. We dont need this. We are a peaceful country. I hope this will come to and end soon.

Lets light a candle for the innocent souls who lost their lives and mourn for them for a few minutes.:(

cheers

Fancy Pants !

I really don't know should I be posting this here ...cause this is not directly related to animation ...but this is coolest flash game i came across ...cool graphics ...simple, more like hand-drawn animation ...stick figure to be more precise ...nice interaction and great animation too ....jumping, killing, kicking and even wall climbing ...can keep you engaged for a while ...do try it if you like here, may take a while to load...


again sorry if am posting something irrelevant ...have a great day !

Hi all
What better way could there be..?? Than to start with a new trailer of IceAge with Scrat



I'd suggest you to view the glorious HD version
http://www.apple.com/trailers/fox/iceagedawnofthedinosaurs/hd/

Well apart from that i thought it'd be cool to arrange an Animation Meet.Students from Takshaa can interact with the Animators from the Studio.Lemme know!!

Thats All Folks!

the chestnut tree




this is one heck of a beautiful animation. it's done by a girl before she got into pixar as an intern. even victor navone has this clip on his blog as one of his faves!
it's really a touching piece... and since it's 2D, its appeal increases MANIFOLD (atleast for me!). very honest and from the heart.... check it out!

tired walk (corrected)

whew! i didnt know the key to avoiding those penetrations was so simple: just move the shoulders up!! lol :D

well thanks for ur corrections guys, this is the "corrected" version of the tired walk... i kinda had to compromise on the rotate X of the shoulders (as u can see in the front view). and vinay i really tried dragging the legs, but then they started snapping! i'll still work on that though! let's see...

c&c plz!

tired walk

hey guys second sem is ROCKING!! having fun animating a FULL body character! lol... well this is my attempt at doing a character walk. i tried "tired walk", and believe me, after doing it, i feel almost the same: TIRED!! lolz, well it was fun doing it... but as u can see there's an issue with the hands... they knock off the knees... if i dont do that, they go thru the geometry of the knees, which i OFCOURSE dont want. so this is the best i cud come up with, although i'm not satisfied, cuz it looks jerky... plz suggest me some methods to overcome that problem AND keep the flow going... thanks!

a meet with a legend: JAMES BAXTER!!



guys this was one of the MOST memorable moments of my life!! I MET JAMES BAXTER!! someone who's worked on classics like Who framed Roger Rabbit, The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, and recent hits like Enchanted and Kung Fu Panda (the hand drawn sequences ofcourse!). it was awesome seeing someone so IMMENSELY talented standing just a few feet away from me!!

well before i get too carried away, lemme just tell u what happened... james was here visiting india and he held a session at the asifa fest 'international animation day' held in bangalore on 6th nov 2008.

it was a 3 hour session which was divided into the first hour of teaching about acting and body mechanics; second hour of the making of the 2D sequence of kung fu panda that his studio did; and the final hour of question answer session.

the session was OUT OF THIS WORLD!! esp the part where he talked abt kung fu panda. it was AMAZING to know how he worked on it!! very inspiring!

whew! well i have found one article on james baxter's lecture on acting, body mechanics, lipsync etc. it's awesome! check it out!!
