Launching soon…’Let’s learn 3D Animation’

The English version of my FREE 3D animation training series is almost ready. I am having very good response to the original Marathi training, ‘चला शिकूया 3D Animation!‘. I will soon start posting the English version. I hope you will like it.

The complete series will introduce to you, various aspects of 3D graphics and we will talk about animation as well. We will discuss right from script writing, storyboards and 3D modeling, animation upto editing and post production. To have a practical and application oriented approach, we will be studying the complete making of a short film. Here is the finish short film.

So stay tuned…

The adventures of Tingu

Video

I am feeling very happy to present to you this short-film. This is a story of ‘Tingu’, a little lamp, trying to resolve the magic cube. After struggling a lot and still not being able to solve, he finally gets angry. At the end, ‘Tingu’ finds the cube resolving ‘magically’.


This short-film is developed by students and fresher 3d artists, at ADVAITA STUDIOS. Everybody enjoyed working on this project and everybody worked hard too, while learning. This is a part of a big free training series (currently in marathi) called- ‘चला शिकूया 3D Animation’. This free training series covers most of the fundamental things about 3D animation and also about computer graphics in general.

3 answers about Career in 3d animation industry

Since 2003, I have been asked for guidance, so many times, about making career in 3D animation field. Most of the questions are from parents asking for their 10th or 12th std children. And other are from those who want to enter in the field themselves.

Out of all the queries, I have shortlisted these 3, which I think are the most important ones:

Most of them were asking me to give more information and a broader overview of the sector. According to them, such kind of information is not readily and easily available. Most newspaper or magazine articles are promotional and NOT informative. They don’t get a cumulative or sorted out information from such articles.

I was also asked by many, to provide in-depth and application oriented training. They have experience that, most of the famous training institutes charge very high amount of fees, but there is less guaranty for real application oriented training. Continue reading

Colours – part 04. Mix the colours!

                Welcome to the fourth discussion on the ‘Colours!‘. The topic is getting so exciting and I am very much enjoying it. I am sure you are enjoying the series too, aren’t you?

                Before going ahead, let’s take a quick recap of the first three posts we talked earlier. In the first post, we talked about our relative sensory system, due to which we can see. In the second post we discussed how we ‘see’. How the light emitted from the source gets converted into a brain signal. And further in the third post we met Mr. Light, talked how the ‘Electro-Magnetic Radiations’ of different wavelengths are ‘seen’ as different colours to us. Now today, we will be taking the topic ahead.

                So we now know that, our eyes has three types of ‘Cone’ cells that works as receptors of three wavelength rays. These three wavelengths are seen as ‘Red‘, ‘Green‘, and ‘Blueish‘ in colour. In our eye retina,  the count of such cones is about 2,50,000. Continue reading

Colours – Part 03 (more light on colours)

Since last two posts, we have established a good tempo and talking about Colours! Right? Yesterday, I was compiling all the notes for this post and was sorting topics. And while doing that, I was sort of thinking to ask my doubts to some one who can answer me well. While thinking about that I started dreaming of a meeting with such a one. I immediately called him and asked for his appointment and to my surprise he agreed. And you know what? Today, We have that very spacial guest with us.
‘Mr. Light’ himself. Yes The Great Mr. LIGHT HIMSELF! Ta Da!
Me: Hello Sir!
Mr. L: Hi Mahesh, how are you?
Me: I’m Great! Its my pleasure to see you. And how do you do, sir!
Mr. L: Pretty straightforward. But Mahesh, I am afraid that I have very short time for discussion now. I have to go to my friends birthday. Her name is twinkle. In next 15 seconds I have to reach there. So ask it quickly.
Me: OK, OK. Sir. I will ask you as fast as possible! I was discussing with my friends about how do we ‘see’. Can you describe us, how do we humans see colours? We would love if, you will put some light on that.
Mr. L: OK Time’s up. I need to go now. I will talk with you later! Till then why don’t you google about that your self? Hmm?
And suddenly a big flash of light crossed over my head and then… Continue reading
