Brand new day

Strange that a couple of links takes me to my own blog. The initial reactions of feel-good looking at all my post quickly turned to a bit of awkwardness and finally depression that I haven't been able to update as regularly as I would have liked to.
The past year has been one of the strangest years I have had. Cannot really define it into black or white. Guess every once in a while, the strong feeling of everything you planned up not shaping up hits you like nothing else will ever. Not even watching a Yash Raj movie.
But the one thing that somehow slipped through the devastating fingers of 2010 has to be the small casual game that me and a couple of guys were working on - So not all has been to vain, there shall be some gain.
I am definitely waking up to a brand new day this year. Hopefully I update this space more often.

Vehicle designs

I guess, watching too many Sci-fi movies off-late has inspired me to try out some designs of my own. Yeah It's still got elements already seen, But as someone said, when you totally deviate yourself and start something new, you tend to put in a lot of cliches, stuffs that u made a note of, seeing things around you. That sort of fades away, when you keep iterating and trying out more designs, that's when originality kicks in :) - That said, will try some more whenever free.

Further Monstrosities! - #002

So, disappointed with my first monster, heres another, #002. Beware of the Yinyansaur, the vicious dual headed beast. Being both the male and female, the Yintansaur is capable of self - impregnation and lay eggs. You know what that means? - If You see one, kill it, It multiplies, even before u can say - Run!

This is Monstrocity

So, I thought,to further humiliate myself before you guys, to post some doodles of creatures/monsters/politicians etc. Will keep them quick and dirty!.
And without further ado, heres Monster #001 (Oh yeah, hoping fer 100 of them sweeties)
PS, around 2hrs

Always wondered what the glossy magazine pass off as beauty. While they do reason that people do Want to look at 'perfect' people, it does push the natural out of the window.
