Age old G-Max still very much usable for visualisation. I have always encouraged our office pals to make use of g-max for previsualisation purposes.
here are some videos i have made for them to realise how we can efficiently make use of G-Max in production pipeline.

Im in love at first sight !!

I have been working on normal maps and displacements for a while in our projects( should i say learning). Some time back i came to witness this tool called "crazy bump".

Wow im just amazed by the power of it. It makes anybody working on textures, displacements and normals easier than ever.

It even eases the user to view it on the 3D object which the normal map supposed to be on.
I highly recommend it for any type of work related to normal mapping. Guys at crazy bump are doing a great job.

My Demoreel Version 1

Here is my Demoreel-Version1.
Theres still much more to add in this , thats why i would call this Demoreel Version 1.
I will be happy to have your comments and critics. So go ahead and write what you think of this.

I could have added some music to this, but didn't have much choice , so i left it blank for now. ;)

another set of my works

Here are some my works i have done recently. All these are modeled, rigged and animated my me.
These are only just the screencaps of those files. The final images are having lots of layered maps and fur on them. Some of them have multilayered textures for displacement,reflection,bump,ambient maps done by some of the best artist i have ever seen Mojo,Tony and Sajay. They are my colleagues whom im working with. So its all about team work.
My part is only Modeling Rigging and Animating them as part of the projects.

here are some of the wip's im doing, below is a cartoon car model im rigging now just for fun.
Vehicle rigging is always seems to be interesting, since i used to play a lot of car games at home. Im trying for a realtime rig where i can drive it across the viewport and have all those dynamics stuff happen realtime. ( ofcourse real time dynamics in viewport sucks in max comparing to XSI and Maya) well i can use reactor for this type of rig, but i want to just imitate those things using just constraints and simple controls using just Max.

I will try to post this rig soon. As usual I appreciate and welcome all your comments and critiques on all these.

here is a sneak preview of my recent wip , for now im posting just the turntable of a simple post test. Only the first stage of skinning is over, second stage of all the joint morphs have to be added in the next version.
As usual your C & C are welcome. :)

My best friend and very good animator

Very recently my best friend updated her animation blog. Nice to see some of her cool animations WIP's. Especially the monkey animation "DON'T ANNOY MONKEYS!" is very good.
have a look at her blog :)

Time for animating

Have to admit most of my time is consumed by my office project nowadays. when i come home its like a total machine shutdown. I have to organise myself to finish my animation test with my latest rigs and start animating for the new Showreel.
Only in the weekends my mind feels completely free to think and animate these characters. :-\


There u go with another model/rig here. This model is just some simple shapes, i created to practice my animation talent. I created this one in 3dsmax. This rig has a hand control script which can store hand poses.

Made some rough animation tests with this rig so far. Feels good to animate again.

Will try to post some anim_tests soon.
Comments are welcome :)

The little dancing robot

Here is my another quick creation of a robot. I have created the model and the rig using G-Max to share among my friends to practice animation.

To check the Rig usability im doing a break-dance animation with this rig inside G-Max. Soon i will try to post a animation sample.

Feel free to post any comments, I will soon share this rig over here.

G-Max show off !!

here i am again.. :-)
.. well in the initial stage i modelled this robo_cop_junior inside G-Max to show some of my friends, that G-Max is still very much usable to learn character animation...hmm lets say with less number of tools !!...but i guess they are enough to have fun with this Robo_Junior...
later on i thought i need this model inside 3dsmax.. and there it all started .. there was no proper exporter from G-Max to 3DMax. after a long search i found that there are couple of scripts available to export G-MAx models in to 3DSMax as .md3 formats.

finally i learnt a lesson :-) to model all the geometry inside the main package itself..
now im modelling the robo_dog in 3DSMax..

test_render !!!

hi :-)

well its been a while i updated my blog here...
so here is a small update on my robo_cop_junior v1.2

and here is the rig of it.. well its just a simple rig..
