Id Lee and Chil Lee – Ranjani S Shares a Story for the #6FrameStoryChallenge
submission had to be done – hence the jagged lines and blurred backgrounds to speed up work at last minute
and call it artistic insight 😀 But once I had a story in my mind that I was very excited about, I really
didn’t want to let go of the idea and wanted to finish it as soon as possible. It involved eating up early
mornings and late nights (since I couldn’t work on it during office hours) and although I know I could
do better, I’m still very happy with what I could do in such a short span of time! I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Thank you for such a wonderful challenge!”, says Ranjani
“Three reasons –
1. I found these combination of words very interesting and was able to come up with a story that I myself was very excited about. I HAD to illustrate it! 🙂
2. As a freelancer, one gets more offers on portraits – something that requires a reference to sketch. But this is entirely out of imagination and I wanted to rekindle that side of me who wants to draw straight out of the mind.
3. It honestly was fun. You wouldn’t know how much I enjoyed and laughed when I’d to draw the dragon with a veshti (dhoti) :D”
Did you see how the dragon mopped up all that chilli dust with the idlis in hand? Cool, huh?
