My best digital art

I present here my bestest digital art creation ever. Its a poster made for Robotix 2009.

Inspired by a lot of grunge artwork, the background alone took more than 4 hours in the making. The background was made from scratch using just 4 stock images (that can be seen on the 4 corners).

Once the background was done, the 09 (yellow/orange) part took the maximum time -- close to 1.5 hours.

It is my most detailed work ever with a lot of time spent in getting proper text shadow for maximum legibility.

And finally it is among the very few artwork that looks better in print than on screen (usually it is the other way round).

बोझिल आँखें तुम्हारी बत्ती के green होने की आस देखती रहीं

बात तो वैसे कुछ ख़ास नहीं थी

कोई reply नहीं आया तो सोचा की अब यही सही

शायद आज तुम्हारा mood नहीं था
४ बजे वाला कोहरा भी घिर आया था
मैं आँखें मूँद नींद का इंतज़ार करता रहा
कल रात तुम्हारे online आने का इंतज़ार करता रहा

इन बोझिल आंखों को तुमसे chat करने की आदत सी हो गई है.

And for those whose Hindi font is not working:

Kal raat tumhare online aane ka intezaar karta raha
bojhil aankhen tumharee batti ke green hone ki aas dekhti rahi.n

baat to waise kuchh khaas nahi thi
par baat to fir bhi karni thi
din kaise beeta, jab chot lagi -- kyun hansa
yahi sab kahni thi

The Awesome Threesome

I expect the DC++ hoggers already know about "Three KGPians day out", well here is a new version of it.

Four days before the end sem exams, and on the eve of the day which has three tests in store for them, three KGPians, decided to go out for a late night snack. Actually there wasnt much decision involved except for the place where they would be willing to hog down stuff. The local canteen won on the grounds that being the nearest, they would be WASTING much lesser time if they went there.

The guftagu began, after the initial rite of ordering your stuff. Two Bread Butters, one beg sandwich, and a cup of tea. No maggie, no chowmein -- seriosly these people were low on budget. Before we get any further into their actual conversation, lets name the three dramatis personae. On account of confidentiality, they have requested that they be known by aliases. So lets call them MyTh, Quark and manGO.

As the three waited for the food to arrive, manGO being in a counter reflective mood de…
