Singh and Gun

Featured Post Singh and Gun Sikh Video Game Contra Halo Bhagat SIngh Bedi, Sikhi Art, Punjabi Sikh Warrior Art, Khalsa Fauj

Ever since I played my first video-game at a young age, I have always wanted to make one of my own.

Recently, while working on my sikh art projects I have been working on a game as well, which I am calling Singh and Gun (working title).

Singh and Gun is a run-and-gun platformer, inspired by Contra and Halo, where you fight alien invaders, who seek to capture earth and to drive humanity to extinction. It is your job to find out what they are upto and to stop their nefarious plans.

Help Wanted
I need your help with further development of this project.

You can support this game by funding my Patreon starting from $1 or 68 Rs per month.

Your Support is Key
With your support, I will be able to further flesh out the game, add more content to it, make it available on Mobile phones, and so on.

When the game is finished, I want to eventually release it for free, to the wider audience.

Play Now
All of my Patreon Supporters can start playing the game immediately by downloading the current build of the game from Patreon.

Other Benefits
When you support Singh and Gun, you also gain access to all my Premium Content, such as early access, secret artwork and behind the scenes process.

So please show your support on Patreon.

Thank you

But it’s not just about the rewards. It’s much bigger than that.

When I started Sikhi Art back in 2008, I had no idea that it would grow so much and reach out to people, especially the youth, in a way I never imagined.

At that time, I was just a kid doing what I loved.

Being a bright kid, I went to university to become a doctor because my parents wanted a “better future” for me. However, after graduating, all I ever wanted to do was paint Sikh legends!

For 9 years, I have been working hard at Sikhi Art, at creating beautiful paintings of Sikh legends, of Sikh Gurus and Guardians, with a special emphasis on Bir ras and Sant ras, the Essence of Warriors and Saints.

As I meditated on the Saints, I grew spiritually, I began to understand the depth of the Indian Epics that Guru Sahibs and their Poets translated for us. Immediately, they filled me with strength and inspiration. So I started creating paintings of the Gods as well, to share that inspiration with you!


Art is my passion.

I love making art, I love to read and study our history and culture, and I love to interact with you guys! I love to read your comments, they fill me with glee and inspire me to create more paintings for you guys to enjoy!

(It’s a cycle – I paint, you enjoy, you tell me you enjoy, I enjoy, I paint more…)

I want to work on Sikhi Art full-time, which will allow me to enter a positive space where I can focus on my energy and creativity on creating more awesome paintings and projects for you.

This will allow me to focus on paintings that will inspire new generations to come, paintings that bring to the forefront those hidden gems of the past. It will allow me to focus on building my art tutorials to help young artists grow to their full potential. It will also allow me to work on side projects like educational games and scriptural translations, which will provide tremendous value to our community.

Many of my art tutorials and side projects will be distributed for free.

So I need your support in this endeavour!

This is where Patreon comes in.

Patreon is a platform that allows you to support your favourite artists and their projects, for as little as $0.03 a day. It seems like a great way to sponsor projects we care about as a community that benefit us, individually and as a whole. So I am excited to join the large community of artists on Patreon who are using this service.

With Patreon, I can focus on providing value to you through paintings, art videos and other projects. Additionally, I can focus on improving my craft as well as the content I create for you.

For monthly subscriptions starting at $1, I have set up lots of rewards for you that you can check out here. These are immediate rewards for my Patrons, humble incentives to pledge towards the progress of Sikhi Art.

On the left hand side of my Patreon page, you can see my Goals and my dreams, and how I would grow Sikhi Art into something even bigger, through a variety of projects. These are projects which I have been working on for a while like educational games, translations and more. I have included a brief summary of the projects in this section. I will share more information about these projects as our Patreon community grows.

The Goals section also contains rewards for Patrons, however they are designed to benefit the community as a whole. We will do things to celebrate their completion.

Remember, anything you give is appreciated a lot, so please support me in this journey and Become a Patron of Sikhi Art!

Thank you all for your support.

New Painting – Banda Singh Bahadur

Banda Singh Bahadur Bairagi Madho Madhav das sikh general vaishnav vaishnu khalsa nihang fateh warrior

With galloping horses, kicking up dirt and debris, Baba Banda Singh ji Bahadur and his Singhs surround the cruel Wazir Khan and aim their spears at him! Wazir Khan’s horse is slain and falls to the ground, representing the fall of Sirhind, and he is forced to defend himself as he collapses to the hard ground. In the background, Baba ji’s army is Continue reading…

Upcoming Release – Celebrating Vaisakhi
Be on the lookout for my upcoming portrait of Dasam Pita, Guru Gobind Singh ji. This painting is painted in the traditional pose with Guru Sahib looking up and out into the distance, his face glowing and his expression tranquilizing. This look is combined with the accurate depiction of his turban/dumalla, plume/kalgi and robes/chola that we see in ancient paintings of Guru Gobind Singh ji of his time and of Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s time!

I will present this authentic portrait of Dashmesh Pita on Vaisakhi!

Print and Cost Structure Changes
I have been making several changes to the prints and costs in the past few weeks!

-Print changes
To make it easy to hang and to keep it simple, I have now made Stretched Premium Gloss Canvas the default option. These are of great value as we hand-stretch them around thick wooden bars to hold them taught. We also provide a hanging kit so that your canvas is ready to hang on the delivery day. This makes the hanging process hassle-free and you get to enjoy the print sooner!
Rolled canvas option is still available at a discounted cost! Especially good for those who already have the equipment necessary for stretching.

-Size changes
I have added a smaller size, 24 inches, which is more affordable for budget-conscious collectors.
This size also works well with small wall-spaces! It is also ideal for standard frames.

-International Shipping Costs
Shipping charges to United Kingdom and other International locations have always been pretty hefty for us. However I have adjusted them for you guys to make them more attractive.

Any feedback in this area is greatly appreciated. I am experimenting with these things and I will make changes or revert to old system if necessary.

While planning to decorate my own home, I created some visuals and noticed how beautiful Harmandir Sahib would look on a pale blue wall. When I tried this with the others, they looked very refreshing. I thought this would be a great visual aid for you guys as well. So I whipped up an entire batch of such Visuals for many paintings. I will create more in the future.

Thanks for checking this out and reading all the way. Love you guys from the bottom of my heart!

What I imagine Shri Harimandir Sahib (Golden Temple) might have looked like before it was covered in gold and marble. Its humble origins are of mud and brick, surrounded only by a sacred pool (amritsar), trees and wildlife as it has yet to develop into a large urban community. These swans are the spiritually exalted gursikhs that swim in and drink from that abundant supply of amrit, which comes from the meditation of guru’s name.

Keep an eye out for my painting of Guru Arjun Dev ji. It depicts the martyrdom of Guru Sahib in meditation being tortured on a hot plate with burning sand. I am in the process of painting the final touches.
