Remains of a lost project !!




I hate to talk about this project...y'know the kinda stuff which suddenly stops/vanishes and your client just gets caught up in a vanishing act.

they wanted a 'different looking tiger'..a doberman and a..wise speaking old tree..
these were the explorations..

I've been waiting for some sign for the past 3 months.
Now that theres nothing..I may as well go post this stuff (so that theres some proof if they use it without my knowledge)

For all those who think 'design grows in trees'...
well yes..design 'does' grow in trees..
But then it needs someone to cultivate and fertilize it.
and farming is expensive..so you better spare money ..cause DESIGN IS NOT FREE..

Sorry guys...i hate 'em when they take this profession lightly !!

Do I make sense? what do you think?

Helloo Manoj!

How are you doing? You know, I can't believe I didn't stumble upon your blog earlier either :|. You have some amazing work here!

Ooh so sorry to hear about this though! But I guess you will always have people who think of illustrating as a 'hobby', as a light profession that you can do easily on the side -_-'. I agree with you say and it's a good thing you post it here, because we can enjoy these amazing sketches!

Take care!

These are awesome and yeah i agree with TJ.
Alot of people kinda believe that drawing is like a hobby and treat it accordingly.
Keep it up, love the style of the tiger.

Hey bro, I will thank that cheater client to give a chance to us to entertain your awesome talent. Anyways, most of the clients in our field are like this only. Don’t expect so much decency from them always. =)

yes you do make sense..
But there were lots of things happening in my life.
My fiance's mom expired , after couple of weeks my grandma too expired,my life was on hold.. for a while.. i know i should have kept you in touch. I am sorry for being unprofessional but sometime nothing can be done about it.
The project i started is not stopping at any cost. i have done with the preprod and it is in asset building stage.
And dont worry i am not going to use your characters. hope i could get a chance to work with you in future. you are a fabulous artist and i always liked you work.
Sorry
