But it's certainly a part of me, that I haven't previously explored artisticly. I've wanted for quite some time to do something that involved the following things: lineart, wakfu-style, fluidity, happyness, sweetness - and hopefully I managed to capture some of those keywords in my piece.
Ann-Helen Hellesø Rinvar, Jess Nicholls, Anne Moth, Henning Sanden, Mathias Nørgaard, Morten Jæger, Marion Strunck, Nynne Mors, Rune Hansen & Esben Lash Rasmussen for awesome tips and pointers along the way
Long time since last post - is currently in the last preparation-stages for a lecture on "Digital Painting" I'll be doing soon. Will post the final lecture in two parts on Vimeo and on Tawtuts.blogspot.com - so stay tuned for more updates.
Today some value-practising. Random locations for an island.
Really started to like looking at color scripts/lighting keys after reading "The Art of Pixar" recently, and since it's a personal desire to improve my skills in this field, the natural solution would be to do color studies myself. Formerly I've done color studies mostly just picking the colors from the original pictures - however, this does merely challenge the painting-aspect of it, and not so much finding, seeing and creating the colors from the ground myself.
Results follow below. Next challenge will be to do some more low-key indoor ones.
Next major portfolio-piece completed. This one's inspired by classic MMO-scenarios with distant lands in the background, small huts/villages from Switzerland - and the artwork and feel of Guild Wars 2. Hope you enjoy.
Refreshing to do some croquis again. Also, some mixed sketches and a watercolor from the Garda-lake in Italy. And finally three copy-studies, first two of Justin Gerard and last one of a Nicolas Marlet drawing.
Inspired by a teacher-given task given to a classmate - I decided to do a similar task for myself, creating a piece in the opposite direction of my typical comfort zone. This was an adventure into the dark, the creepy, the nasty and the gross - resulting in this zombie portrait. Aside from the joy and struggle of the painting proces, it was also quite a personal challenge for me to look at the reference pictures I had helping me along the way, because in all honesty - some of them were really nasty.
Hope you enjoy the result. Next up in "Out of My Comfort Zone" will be some cute manga-faerie-girl with delicious thighs and pleasant colors! So stay tuned!
Spent some of my 22th birthday with my family at the zoo in Aalborg - It's been a while since I've had the chance to sketch animals from life - it was a pleasant reunion. I particularly loved the sleepy sea lion and the lioness - both of them would occasionally sneakpeek from their nap to see if I was still studying them.
And continuably awesome holidays to those following my blog! /B
After having spent...approximately 8 days of my life watching 24 hours with Jack Bauer - I felt I owed him a little tribute, so I felt like drawing Jack doing what he does second best; Yelling "WHERE IS IT?!"
Most of this picture is study from picture - but several things adjusted and changed to fit my interpretation
Felt inspired to do some more pencildrawing, after listening to a podcast with Marko Djurdevic and looking at Wesley Burt's artwork. I noticed that in order for my own sketches to have that kind of detail, I'd have to spend more time on my drawings and be more patient in the proces. So here follows two sketches, being more "patient" than usual. They're screenstills from movies by the way, there's a great resource of movie stills on Framefilter
One week with Peter Chan of my favorite subject, concept design, lead into exploring what one is usually not comfortable with - so I dived into the world of cartoony, tight and simple. The task was to create three different character designs with varying shapes - and use those three characters to tell a story, creating a "moment" in a film.
