Life drawing

Hello gang!
This summer I’m attending the life drawing class here at campus Gotland. It’s been fun so far but a bit intense at times. I’ve been drawing people for a long time and I think I’m pretty decent at it, but practice is always good!
I found my old drawings from three years ago when I read the first 2D class and I’ve improved a lot more than I thought since then!
Here are some drawings from this summer:

You Can Now Schedule Your Social Media Posts from WordPress.com

Keeping up with social media can feel like a full-time job these days — and for many it is. Posting your content on Twitter and Facebook during specific hours, and keeping things evenly spaced out, means that you need to tend to your profiles pretty often.

WordPress.com Teams Up with Rebrand Cities to Bring Local Businesses Online

Cities are collections of neighborhoods — and neighborhoods are powered by small business. From coffee shop owners to fitness instructors, therapists to thrift stores, it’s the people we see in the storefronts next door who build and reinforce the unique character of our cities.
At WordPress.com, we want to support local businesses as they grow their own communities (and their revenue!) on the open web. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Rebrand Cities, a project founded by Hajj Flemings to […]

Enterprise-D

This is a modular environment representing an engine room hallway of the Star Trek starship Enterprise-D. It was created in fall 2015 during a 3D environment course taken for my bachelors degree.
The environment was constructed by modelling [number of parts] parts in 3ds Max. The texture of the parts are created in Substance Painter 2.

Sci-Fi Crate

This is a sci-fi crate I made in spring 2017. It has 1 098 triangles and is modeled in 3ds Max and Zbrush. The PBR texture is created in Substance Painter 2.
I was inspired by a concept art piece made by Colin Geller, but I wanted it to have a more realistic appearance so this was the design I ended up with. I was curious to see how far I could push the use of normal maps to save […]

1-year milestone. Finish line.

Since this blog series is supposed to be a map of things that I want to take away with me and perhaps refer to at a later point in life, I should tell about the most interesting thing that happened to me. What pushes a first-year student to write an extensive Post Mortem of a whole year of studies­? No, it’s not an iron discipline or a desire to be productive 24/7. I could be doing other things or not […]

1-year milestone. Part 3.5: My beef with artist/codes/producers

This is the second to last thing I want to write about. All the complaints I can think of about the other team members and their line of work.
My “head count” so far:
A luxurious number of artists: 5 different artists with their skills ranging from high to low.
2 Programmers who both were brilliant.
2 producers who together can be considered as much as 0,8 producers. It’s was a complicated situation. One of the producers hated this line of work, we were […]
