Already 2013!













Guess It's time to update the blog again. It's been way too long.
The painting above was slightly inspired by my drive in San Fernando Valley outside LA, where I found the movie location for Steven Spielberg's "E.T"









A Facebook cover I for me and my girlfriend. Cuteness overload x 2!


















Some quick study at work.Animating a squirrel!


















I'll put in some stuff from last year as well. This one was made after my business trip in NYC, Seeing the Empire State building and Statue of Liberty...

And a sleeve-tattoo I drew for my friend so he could take it while he was on his long holiday trip in Brazil!




















Small sized dragon concept art

Here's a few concept art sketches of a small dragon I did about half a year ago at The Mill. (Further notes about certain poses here: the dragon was actually supposed to be doing a rap song...)






















Bachelor film released!

My bachelor group project "The Backwater Gospel" can now be seen online.

Sypnosis
As long as anyone can remember, the coming of the Undertaker has meant the coming of death. Until one day the grim promise fails and tension builds as the God fearing townsfolk of Backwater wait for someone to die.







(WARNING: this film is not suited for minors)
You can find the movie here (or by clicking the poster)

Birthday greeting

Started my first CG-painting this year with a birthday greeting to my mum. 100% chance of Karaoke night if her Filipino friends are invited!

Update =o

Guess it's been a while! Had a great internship in London working mostly on the game cinematics for the new FPS game "Brink" and also animated on a bunch of commercial work. Just recently graduated and is now all finished with my bachelor in animation in Denmark where my bachelor movie "The Backwater Gospel" premiered at the cinema! (It can be seen online soon)

I have to wait a bit before I can post the animation and concept art I did at The Mill. So meanwhile I'll just fill up the rest of this post by dumping out the few scribbles I did while I was there..

Cheers!



The 11 Second Club

Last month I was lucky enough to get first place on "The 11 Second Club"
The animation was created using TVP where the task was to animate a dialogue taken from the movie "Requiem For A Dream"

Torghatten, Brønnøysund














Last year a friend of mine wanted me to paint a picture for her mothers birthday.  The painting had to include the mountain from my hometown in Norway called "Torghatten" Likewise it also were to include seagulls and "Fembøring"(a type of boat) wich is also quite common here in Brønnøsynd (at least on older classical paintings from this area)

Multiply - Part two



















The awakening! :o

Multiply











A sketch for the topic "Multiply" at Taw-Monkey.

Glenn Vilppu class

For two Saturdays I was lucky enough to get into Glenn Vilppu's weekend classes here in Viborg.

In general, it was quite difficult for me to draw when there was so many things to think about again.

I do however feel I learned a lot from those two days, and things started to become a little bit more easier and automatic towards the very end. To bad it was for such a short time though, he's such a talented draughtsman and teacher.





Stuff



1. quick Caricature of a fisherman painting hanging at the wall of the school pub

2. A speed-painting for a weekly drawing activity where the topic was to design a super sized life saving vessel that would rescue humanity if earth was undergoing a distaster.
