Barbershop? Not quite...

So... i tried... Abhisaar, Sachin and me, sang the song together... three times in different tones... originally i was supposed to sing the lead, sachin the tenor and abhisaar the baritone... but Abhisaar couldn't keep the tune... so we decided to sing all of the parts together one by one... except the lead which no one could sing except me... this is how it turned out... pretty sad, but we had fun doing it... also, we were missing the bass... we thought Rustom might sing for us, but the idea abhorred him... :(




I hadn't made a video, and i didn't know how to just post just audio, so i took an old image and made a video out of it... :P

Barbershop training videos are available here... including the one we were trying to sing...

Ol' Devil Woman... or maybe not...

It was high time that i started using illustrator... I had been putting off installing illustrator, because i knew in the near future i had to reinstall windows completely... but i never got around to doing that... yesterday, absolutely certain that such a day is not going to happen, i installed illustrator... and started experimenting with it... heres something i did with illustrator and photoshop...

Illustration Friday : Parade 2

I just had to mention my Principal when i mentioned my school... Her name is Mrs. Dastidar... She's this HUGE woman who parades around the school grounds with her BIG umbrella, which she would use to shelter herself from the sun and also to hit unruly boys or girls... but she'd prefer slapping students to hitting them with the umbrella(why waste a good umbrella?)

Illustration Friday : Parade

In School, we had to endure half an hour of morning assembly everyday... And there was no way of escaping it, unless if you fainted or were late for school, but if you did you'd have to stay out in the sun anyways...

It started with a prayer, and then it went on to the news, and then a happy birthday song for anyone whose was born on that day and some years ago, and then some announcements by the principal or vice principal, and finally the national anthem...

I changed my school after the tenth and joined army school... in the vast grounds and the morning prayer accompanied by drums and the harmonium, every morning assembly felt like a parade (:P) ...

We had a school song as well. Once a week, we'd replace the morning prayer with the school song... the words go somewhat like this...

We are children Happy and Gay,
Strongly united, walking all the way,
We are from Army school proudly say,
Always we know and firmly say,

A for amity and Aspiration
R for ready to help anyone,
M for morals we keep with us,
Y for young and yet courageous.

Army school we sing and declare,
we will shine every where,
.....

i forget the rest...

We'd always meddle up the second line.... :P

Ahmedabad

You can't survive in Ahmedabad's summer without an A.C. or at least a cooler... But filling it with water everyday is quite a pain... and then the humidity... oh God!!

Illustration Friday : Hierarchy

So... its been a long time since my last illustration friday post...

I've been working on somethings, not been working on other things... playing a lot of computer games... like RA3... and er... hmm... basically a lot of RA3 and its expansion... i'm living in the hostel with my batchmates, and there are just three of them left, everyone else has left for their diploma projects, and the juniors have left for home... so the hierarchy(seniority) in the hostel has been abandoned for now... and now i can only dominate are troops of Mecha Tengus and Striker-VX's against my computer opponent... :P

Pre Dip


After we gave our final jury, we decided to put up our Pre-diploma display for the entire community to see... Having seen my seniors put up their pre dips before, i knew what we had to put up, but also what we had to live up to... Most of our seniors had individual pre dips, and they had loads of work... great work... i don't know about my batchmates but i was scared... a pre dip is not just any display, it is what you have learnt in the past four years over here in NID... and i didn't know if a small cubicle was enough for me to show anything at all... i didn't know if i had enough work to fill a small cubicle....

We put up our display, all of us except Hunny, she'd fled and was chilling in Bombay... (I've heard rumors of her planning to put up a predip, later, all by herself...)

Things went well, we were one day late in putting up our display, but we extended the timing to compensate for our tardiness...

As far as Pre dips go, ours was just like any other...Poster(s) around campus... Our work stapled on the softboards... and our films played in the computers on the side... Feedback books lying open for any passerby to comment on...

I was happy that it was up but i didn't quite feel like celebrating the beginning of the end of my stay in NID...

*sigh*

Color

Here's one problem that i face... i'm scared of color... well... sometimes... and not really scared... it's not like i can't use color... but i'm so comfortable with the pencil or the pen that i refrain from using the brush... about a month back, i forced myself to use color, on a random sketch... Acrylic paint!!! Something that i hadn't used since character design... I was quite happy with the result as the entire ordeal was quite impromptu...



I regret to say that i haven't touched any colors since... :P

Ze leetal Froggie

I'm a fan of A cappella music... My only source of any such music is Youtube, but the videos posted there, although very good are usually the work of other amateur A cappella enthusiasts... One day, or rather, one night as i was rummaging through Youtube going through some more amateur videos, i came across the video above...
The song stuck... and it stayed stuck...
for several days...
and nights...
and through night mess ...

why the frog?
i don't know...

Self Portrait


I had never done a realistic portrait of myself, always preferring what i thought i looked like to what i really looked like, but some days ago i came across a picture of myself where i didn't mind looking at myself. I said to myself, "God! I'm beautiful!", and so, i went ahead and drew myself...

there was no cigarette in the picture, but i felt like adding it and so i did...

Dubey claims i look like a Chinky Mafia Ganglord... :P
