I truly do not know how to describe me. I do 2D and stop-motion animation, but that does not mean I am an animator. I do story boards, but that does not mean I am a storyboard artist. I do concept arts, character design and illustrations, but that does not mean I am a concept artist or character designer or an illustrator either. I really enjoy drawing, animating puppets and storytelling. So I believe I am someone who like to tell stories through drawing and animation.
BA(Hons) 2D animation and stopmotion
From early childhood I draw and draw and draw. One of the main influence on me at that time was Cartoon network. I draw the characters I saw from my memory and added my own imagination. I played with toys and action figures and pretend them to be my characters from television. So from that age I began to express myself through my drawings and puppets (toys). May be the medium would have changed but basically I am interested in expressing stories and emotions through my drawings and animations.
I went to an animation academy when I was in India and later worked as a junior animator there, but the lack of skills and knowledge pushed me to formally study again in animation and thus I came to Teesside university.
I am currently a third and final year student but I have one more semester to go because I am a January intake.
I do Animations(both 2D and stop-motion), storyboards, animatics, concept arts, illustrations and recently I have interests in puppet making as well.
Software and Hardware Proficiencies
I use software’s such as Adobe animator, Toonboom Harmony, Photoshop, Premier, After effects and I-pad applications like Procreate and Autodesk sketchbook.
