The Rocking Poster


Heyy Guys !!

This Week our College is celebrating The Annual Inter-College Cultural Festival called “Moksha” with Bollywood Theme, dedicating a tribute to 100 Years of Indian Cinema.

While taking a look on archives of my college memories  I discovered some pics of my poster artworks when I was working as a member in the Fine Arts Department during this particular Fest 2 years back. I was working under the guidance of Shivang Gupta and Arshia Gupta, who were really amazing in Fine Arts especially in Painting. Since they know about my passion for Rock Music and Graffiti Artwork during participation in the previous fest, I was therefore assigned to create a poster for the Rock Night Event called “Avalanche”.

Regarding this theme, I came up with my own idea and started drawing a Rough Pencil Sketch on A4 Sheet before making the Big Artwork. I ‘ve made an Electric Guitar at the center having a White Angel and Dark Bat wings on either sides, depicting the both sides (Good Heaven and Evil Hell) of Rock Music. I’ve also made two Large Speakers behind that guitar, setting them on fire and two Rocking Fists on the edges. It tool me about an hour to thin and draw the rough sketch. Now I show this sketch to my senior mentors, they really found really nice and creative (though they laughed a little at first which made me nervous).

And then, I started to make it on a full size Cartidge Sheet. Now I had to sketch my whole idea even more detailed. Plus, I also had to write the name of that event in some Calligraphy (appearing to be some what heavy) at the bottom of my artwork.

After 4 hours of hard work and dedication, the Final picture came like the way I expected.

Well that was one of my best moments when I contributed something for my College during this fest. I enjoyed my time in Fine Arts Work with some nice inspiring seniors, who became my good friends soon. But there are some of my batchmates who taunted me, “Tu Fine Arts Hi Karr” (“You could only do Fine Arts”). But I didn’t bother about the comments from those creepy losers as I am not impressing them for their pleasure sake. Plus, Haters could only be just jealous and talk shit. In the end, I had some fun those days and will be having so in the future.

Never Leave Your Passion Alone in Darkness (Day 6 of Truth)



The following Post is for accomplishing Creative Challenge called 30 Days of Truth, given by Kellie Elmore. It is a unique exercise in self exploration and learning to be honest with yourself… and that ultimately leads to happiness.

30 Days of Truth

*****************************************************************************************

When a very bit of small Hobby you are fond of, which you would definitely like to do most of time whenever you get some time. Exploring your vivid imaginations. It eventually becomes your Passion which you always would do and never like to leave. But unfortunately, being busy and indulging in other important tasks modern life, You can’t give enough time for your Passion and therefore, you lose it somewhere.

Same happened with me. Like I’ve said, I was much passionate towards Arts during my childhood days, doesn’t means that I’m not so right now .. I’m still so but not that much. I was totally inspired with many forms of Artworks which usually our Art Teacher used to give us Bi-weekly. Some used to do it like a Burden as if they are being forced to complete it. Whereas for me, It was yet another Mystery to be solved, yet another Mountain to be climbed,  yet another World to be explored and eventually yet  another Goal to be achieved. Keep that attitude, I didn’t feel that I was doing just to complete my Homework ASAP, Impressing my Art Teacher and getting Good Grades in Drawing. It was becoming a Fun to be enjoyed. That particular subject was becoming a Hobby.

And this is how, I just getting more and more into Drawing. It’s not that I used to focus only in that, I was even good in other subjects as well. Among the Toppers you could say. 😛 Still, I’ve made a BALANCE between Drawing and other Academic Subjects those days. I used to refer TV Art shows Like – Art Attack and M.A.D.for getting more knowledge on other forms of Art. I’ve participated in many Inter-School Competitions, in some of them I’ve won as well. Not just my family and friends, My School Teachers used to appreciate and encouraged me all for that. Among them, My Mom was the one who Encouraged me a lot sparing some of my Bad Habits and Naughtiness. I was so much addicted with it that I even used to draw my Sister’s Drawing Homework a lot. Whether it was any Art or any Book Diagram,I used to do it quietly and in return, she didn’t tells Dad how much I played Video Games or Cricket with friends today. 😛 Though I was not that much pioneered in Arts, but ya I was learning faster and getting more better. 😉

With such improvements and achievements in my Drawing, I’ve realized afterwards, that this Hobby is now growing up into a Passion. I was even day-dreaming that I could do it like a professional Artist. But like I’ve said as soon as you Grow-up, your priorities change. Same happened with me which I still regret. Well after clearing my Metric (10th Std. Board) Exams, I’ve was more passionate towards Science Field especially in Computer Science. Being A Science Non-Medical Student, I devoted my most time into Learning Theoretical and Practical Concepts, Understanding Languages and even after Studying Harder n’ Harder for my Engineering Entrance Exams (IIT-JEE, AIEEE and DCE-CEE). As I was indulging myself more into Academics, My Career Priority of being an Engineer lied above of Being an Artist. With this, I’ve lost all my Excellent Skills in Arts as I hardly practiced for it. It seemed as if the Soul and Passion for becoming an Artist died those days.

Yet another Grief that I’m sharing. Not a Big One, but still painful.But Looking some of my Batch-mates and some Seniors of my College, who are seriously DAMN inspiring and totally Pioneered in Arts. Looking them and then looking me, I’ve learned a Lesson that Neither Leave Your Passion Alone Nor Let it Die inside You, cause in the end It hurts so Bad.

So learning through all these experiences, I’ve started bringing up my Talent back again. Again Leaning , Exploring, and Practicing. I’ve participated and also won in many Art Competitions organised in our and others College Fests. I usually make Drawings with Chalk in our Classroom Board, whenever there’s some Free Period. Plus, I’ve started making some Sketching in my College Notes during Boring Lectures as well. 😛 Moreover, I am also in College Fine Arts Team, who make Banners and Posters for our College Fests. Many of the Artworks that I’ve published so far here in my Blog, they all have been made during my recent College Days.

Well, It was my unfortunate that I left my Talent for a while and paid it costly. But no regrets now at all. I can’t change my Past, but could endure my Present and Future. Still I’m passionate of Art and even placed it in my Career Priority List. I’ve started making a Balance between my college Studies and my Passions. Though I’m lost all my Ole School Drawing Skills, Still I’m learning and exploring more into it as sometimes it feels so Good to learn and grow up like a Kid again. 8)

All That I Want (Day 5 Of Truth)



The following Post is for accomplishing Creative Challenge called 30 Days of Truth, given by Kellie Elmore. It is a unique exercise in self exploration and learning to be honest with yourself… and that ultimately leads to happiness.

30 Days of Truth

*****************************************************************************************

Everybody has certain ambitions and desires to become what they want. They keep on working hard for making their wish true. Even I have certain list of things that I want to be and hopefully I would become lately.

Here they are :-

1. Computer Programmer

Primarily and also on the basis of my major field of interest. I like to Coding a lot in certain Programming Languages (but most frequently in C/C++, as it reminds my ole school days). Since I’ve laid interest on this field, I just get with it day and night, focusing on certain concepts, applying some algorithms and solving’em with some presence of mind. It truly requires some Coding Skills and an approaching view to solve any kind of problem. It even becomes mind-boggling and damn irritating when get stuck in the middle with any problem, trying to figure out the bug (or error), for hours, days or even Weeks. But still, I like this. 😉

Ya indeed, I would like to go on further, learn certain new languages, new algorithms and even new compliers, to learn something NEW and getting updated with latest technology in the market. I am on my way. Moreover, It would be for my living in future.

 

2. Artist

I was truly passionate about Drawing before entering into Programming, since childhood. Drawn a lot of art creations not only these days, but also in the past School days. I really love sketching a lot and like to draw sketches of posters, cartoons and many still objects nearby.  But not so good in Painting, as I’ve lost those painting skills when I left my paint brush during my High School Days. But still, I would really like to lay emphasis on that piece of work as well. Moreover, I’m very glad to some of my college seniors and some of blog-mates who are indeed The Masters in Fine Arts, and from whom you’ll get to learn something NEW every time.

Well, Y’all have even seen all my creations so far in my blog and appreciated many of them as well. It would be increasing more and more in future with some expertise and perfection. Hopefully, I would become like Professional Artists in future.

 

3. Computer Animator and Gaming

Well though it’s a mixture of the above two, but still describing it on another category. It may be more biased to Programming, but an Artistic Vision is also required whenever you’re a creating some character. I’ve just made a simple Snake Game in C/C++ Language back in December last year. Though it was already made by many brilliant programmers across the World, even in more better way and also, C/C++ Games are now outdated these days. But my purpose of making this Game was to utilize all the coding skills and artistic approach learnt so far. I would surely like to improve upon by learning some New Programming Languages like – JAVA, C#, .NET, PHP and also some Game Source Engines like Allegro and OpenGL.

Since I’m exploring and updating myself in both – Programming and Arts,  I am even going along with Computer Animation and Gaming as well.

 

4. Mimicry Artist and Radio Jockey

Just for FUN though , but seems like It has now become something that I would like to do more and more. Mimicry / Voice Impersonating over 50 artists and certain 100 Cartoon characters. I’ve performed that thing quite lot, in front of my friends, class-mates and even a crowd of around 1000 during my College Freshers Party. From limited people to a Mob, This n00b has raised HELL in the town. 😛

But I’m not a regular performer, as obviously It not only would affect my voice, but also there won’t be something NEW to show to the people, and eventually, making my act completely BORING. So Therefore, I just take break for a while, writing some new scripts to entertain people. That’s my way, To Be Happy and Making Others Happy. 😉

Well after recognizing my talent very well, some good friends of mine recommended to try for Radio Jockey (RJ) as profession. Even I’ve tried my level best to become a RJ in my College Radio Channel – Radio NSIT, but failed to get selection. No Regrets at all. But ya !! I would like to be a RJ in some other Radio Station when I really push myself forward more in this talent and acquire more confidence to be good enough for a RJ.

 

5. Photographer

It used to be my Time-Pass Hobby in earlier days.  After clicking many pictures either with Mobile Camera, or Digital Camera, of whatever I see nearby, I’ve discovered that I’m doing that free-time work quite well.  Even some people liked my pictures and also appreciated the fact that I’m Good in Photography. So whenever I get time for a while, I just click some nice pictures of my surroundings many time until I am satisfied.

But I know, not only use of Professional Photography Cameras,  but also a Photogenic Vision is also required to become an Expert in this particular field. Hopefully, this piece of Time-Pass Hobby might become a Big-Time Profession in future. You just never know. 😉

 

6. Poet

Basically, I like to express my feelings carved in some nice words. Like Arts, even Poetry is my childhood passion.  I used to pen down my thoughts in a poem with some rhymes as well. Now, Even trying to use some phrases, metaphors and even some other forms of Poetries like – Haikus (which I’ve done all this February 8)), would make my poetry even more expressive and graceful.

After blogging for around 9 months, I’ve got to see many Professional Poet Bloggers some, from whom you’ll get to learn more and more. They eventually become yourMentorin this field as their expertise and experience means a lot to us.

 

There are more brilliant people in my above field of interests mentioned so far. I’m glad to such people in my Life. Some of them are very helpful, who would let others’ to and promote their particular field of interest. While some of them are Egoistic, who won’t help anyone to grow as they like to be sole surviving master of their field and probably would take out those who don’t match with their so-called level. But somehow, you get to learn something them.

 

However, above from all those desires which I’ve discussed so far. Before I become a Computer Programmer, an Artist, a Computer Animator, a RJ , I would like to be a Good Human at First.  Like a Good Brother, who would try to protect his fellow beings from problems. Like a Good Friend, who would retain his friendship forever. Like a Human Being, who would promote. For being a good human, you ought to be Kind, Matured, Responsible, Adamant and Peaceful.

But ya, after living in and experiencing from The Real World, you oughta be Smart and bit Diplomatic as well. 😉  8)

Life is full of unpredictable obstacles. I dunno and won’t get to know earlier of what I would become either one or many of them, in future. I’m just focusing on my dedication towards my desired interests and thinking of the Current, not much about the Future. And about my future and career, Life would notify me that sooner. Fingers Crossed !!!  😉 😀
