“This is your life, and it's ending one minute at a time. If you wake up at a different time, in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?”…. Here’s to my all time fav movie.. Fight club!!.. this started off as a speed-painting poster..wanted to try out the smudge-style coloring..but as can always be expected of me, got carried away n ended up spending a couple of hours or more on it . PS and a bit of coral painter
Thug: Get outta my way, chinaman!
Stevan Segal: Dont call me chinaman
Thug: Wotcha gonna do if i call u chinaman, CHINAMAN?
Took a break while doing a piece n ended up watching few of those MAD tv spoofs on Stevan segal flicks...and in turn ended up doing this one. Tried picturing Stevey playing my character "the vagabond"
Now here is one dude you should be careful enough not to piss off...SSSsuperman!! ...penciled and inked traditionally, colored digitally.
Finally got to watch Hellboy 2: The golden Army. I'v been experimenting with different styles to find out an optimum style for doing a completely noir comic. This one is ..i’d say 94% traditional... The only “digital intervention” is the pattern and a bit of contrast correction. The rest of it is plain ol’ ink and brushes. Had fun making those splotches using a tooth brush and Rotoring ink :D
Totally tripped on this one while listening to Staind!! The sketch was made by my buddy Rosh, and the coloring was done by me
Always wanted to do my version of the black spidey..was just experimenting with a new style today..lemme know what u think
Merc with a mouth
My favorite Marvel antihero – the one n only Deadpool!!
I'll Be BACK
Call of the wild...
I llove wolverine for all his vulnerability
And before winding it all up, my tribute to all the aging superheros, including my grandpa ...

Thought id as well start off with my online comic right away.. I'm using a comparatively simpler, relatively less time-consuming, non-smooth style for this one as it has to go on along with my main graphic novel. So here is your first glimpse of Zid, the rock-star turned urban yogi turned…hey wait!!!..thtz saying it all out a lil too soon… :).. Will be uploading a few pages here till the website is launched, and then you can continue reading directly from my comic site.

Today I had a trip down La Rue Nostalgia… When I was a lil kid I used to frequent this hill that my dad had inherited, and my frequent companion during these trips was Bobbie, my Granpa’s Daschunt. Bobbie was a whole 7 months elder to me and was more like a protective elder sister to me. We used to spend hours together watching birds.. Ye, u heard right.. Bobbie used to love watching em as much as I did..coz everytime a swallow flew by, her head would follow it..Gone is our lil hill now and so is She. Dad had to sell off the hill to raise money to purchase some plot in the city (DARN!!) and They sent Bobbie to “the happy farm” when I was about 10 yrs old. But the memories still live. So today’s piece of art is dedicated to Both my childhood and my very first friend… Bobbie, I still love you and I will always do

Thought I’d take a couple o hours’ break frm sketching noir and gore and go completely off-beat with this quickie. I dedicate this one to the lil girl whose gallery I came across in DA I tried to imagine what her childhood wouldda been like a few years back.. running around with her camera taking photographs of lil creatures and places..tried to imagine the inquisitiveness in her eyes with which she had been exploring the world around her..and voila!! .. had a lot o fun making this one!

Time to let you guys catch a glimpse of one of the main protagonists of my Neo-Noir graphic novel. Ladies and gentlemen….Presentng… Andrew “The Hatchet” Ramon. He isn’t much of the conventional good guy. That’s all I can reveal about the plot at the moment. But as you can see from the looks of it, I wouldn’t mind If they let Jason Statham, or someone along those lines, play the part if (and a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge IF at that) we end up making a movie out of it someday…

Finally watched the Hellboy movie. Nope not the second.. the first one.. Yeah, its shameful, but true..I hadn’t watched it all these years. But now that the mission has been accomplished, I decided to warm up today by sketching my very own version of Hellboy… and guess wot??...I ended up spending a good 3.5 hours on it!!! Had to try my new Rotoring Isograph 0.3 pen on this one..and it turned out satisfactory. Still haven’t started reading Mike Mignola’s graphic novels though :( … I know I know…sounds like I’m living under a rock here…but I sure have seen many of his artwork.. Ive also been inspired by Reuben Martinez version of the red dude! just u wait!!..I’l be getting ma hands on the graphic novels in a day or two!! Down here is the inked version of him
