Life drawing – final assignments

Hello all! This summer has gone by so unbelievably fast, I get a bit stressed out when I think about it. But it’s definitely been fun!
Our final assignment in life drawing class was twofold; the first part was to make a sculpture, which we did in class with a model as a reference. The second part was to redraw a classical painting, but change it slightly.
Here’s my sculpture:





I’m actually quite pleased with how it turned out. […]

WordPress.com Business Now Supports Plugins and Third-Party Themes

For many years, WordPress.com has been a simple way for people to create their own beautiful WordPress website in minutes.
But that simplicity came with a tradeoff — WordPress.com did not offer built-in support for the thousands of third-party plugins and themes that helped make WordPress the world’s largest and most open web publishing platform.
Now, we’ve made a significant change to the WordPress.com Business plan: you can access and add third-party plugins and themes built by the WordPress community. It’s […]

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.

We wanted to make it easier for WordPress.com users to create great content on their websites — and share it across different social media networks.

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 at Uppsala University for my bachelors degree.
The environment was constructed by modelling 16 parts in 3ds Max. The tileable PBR textures are created in Substance Painter 2. The objects in the scene have several LODs and the lightmaps are manually adjusted to increase the quality of shadows while keeping resolution low. The […]
