Pixo Jr. FREE rig...................a joint project.........

Hey guys! Meet Pixo Jr.! He’s a joint project by animators Amrit R. Derhgawen and Alex Crouch. Inspired by Pixar’s Luxo, Pixo will help animators practice animation principles, such as timing, weight, spacing, phrasing, and overlapping. Pixo’s simple, so you can do basic animations without being distracted by a whole lot of gadgets and gizmos that get in the way.

My cousins got selected in IIT

Hey guys,
Two of my cousins, Anuj Karpatne and Prateek Raj have cleared the Joint Entrance Examination for the Indian Institute of Technology this year. Here's a drawing of Prateek. Unfortunately I didn't get time to draw Anuj's pretty face. IIT is a very prestigious institution, and its not so easy to get into it. So I'm really proud of them!

Pixo Jr.

I made this jumping lamp animation on Maya. This is just a test animation to check Jason Schleifer's Grease Pencil. And yes, don't expect a high quality animation, as this is just for planning the shot!!
