Speaking to Animationxpress.com, Dipanjan Biswas, Art director, SapientNitro said that, “To be a successful animator, you have to be a good illustrator first. In a successful animation, the characters, the backgrounds and all the graphic assets play a major role to draw attention of audience. If your created characters failed to make an impression on others, no one will remember it. As an illustrator, I have worked on a variety of projects. Earlier, I use to implement different kind of style in my illustrations, but for few years now, I have defined a specific style to make an identity for myself. But it doesn’t mean I won’t try any other style in future.” He added. Some of this notable works include
