Designing tattoos, being a prisoner of his own fantasies, getting inspired by other authors but never trying to copy them, and being happy “working for myself in my company and on my own ideas”. This week we meet Sandip Kamble (Ink Ville) from VideoHive.
If you're an Envato marketplace author and would like to be interviewed for the blog, head over to this form. We'd love to hear from you.
Hello, I am Sandip Kamble. I am from Mumbai, India and later I shifted to Pune, India. I started my career with print graphics eight years ago. I was more interested in motion graphics & vfx. That’s why I worked for print graphics only for a year. Then I joined a local production house as an editor.
I feel that joining a production house was a main turning point of my life. That was the time when I started looking into Adobe After Effects. I never thought one day this software would become one of the main tool of trade in my career.
Later I worked for Digital Juice and even worked for two international short term contracts. Three months onsite project in Colombo and then two months in Bahrain. This phase of my life was so good. After returning from Bahrain I started my own company (Ink Ville) in Pune, India. It’s not such a big company though, but I am planning to expand it in near future.
Yes, I am happy now, because I am working for myself in my company and on my own ideas. Apart from working full time for VideoHive and freelancing as a motion graphics artist, I am also a tattoo artist. Whenever I get time from my busy schedule I do tattoo designing.
I sell After Effects templates and occasionally loopable animated backgrounds on VideoHive.
I am self-taught.
I used to work on a desktop before. The desktop is gone and now I have Dell Studio laptop. Soon I am planning to buy a workstation.
Mostly dreams inspire me. I am the prisoner of my own fantasies. Sometime, before going to sleep, something comes to my mind. Then I write it down in a notepad. And later I try to execute those ideas as soon as possible.
Visit top authors portfolios and have a look at their files. Get inspired but never try to copy those files. Work on your own unique idea.
Once my file get approved on the marketplace, I publish them on Adobe Exchange. Then I have my YouTube channel to promote my files. I have my awesome Facebook page as well and you can find it here.
I feel this is one of the unique and nicely executed file on VideoHive.
This is one of the best-looking looking 3D projects.
3. Fire Reveal
This item is well-executed and looks realistic.
All the authors are damn good on VideoHive. But the list of my favorite authors are:
In my spare time I do sketching, painting and tattoo designing. I love traveling and occasionally I read books.
