Baraka - The Characters

Last year, in the month of September we had an elective of experimental illustration conducted by the talented Mr. Niranjan Mhamane.

The task was to examine and study the movie Baraka. Baraka is a 1992 non-narrative documentary film directed by Ron Fricke. It explores themes via a kaleidoscopic compilation of natural events, life, human activities and technological phenomena shot in 24 countries on six continents over a 14-month period.
Watch the trailer here

I loved the varied characters in the film, i loved them more because they were all so real yet brilliantly unique.

What i've done with them is pretty much self explanatory :P (Other than ruining all the seriousness of the film)

They are all hand drawn and rendered on Photoshop. 

As i mentioned in my earlier post, my massive project is out for your viewing!
Couple of my friends and i have been working on this for quite a while now and we're so glad to share it.
Our very own website

We have created about 170 mini forms of our seniors and messed around with it :P
Lots of updates coming up on the website!

Laadu Laadi

Laadu and Laadi are the characters i happened to create randomly for a rangoli on Diwali last year. Fell in love with them ever since. 

Last month, i finally took out the time to digitalise them and got more precision and character into it.

Printed them.. 

Made Badges! 
..with a companion element of  'आर्ट'. Sold 93 badges at the design store of my college fest.
I'm so glad they were loved :D

Sorry for the highly filtered pictures. I'm an unhealthy fan of filters. :P 

Working on my biggest project until now, will be out tomorrow :D
Until then, Laadu Laadivar khup prem karat asel.
