4550 Project - Overview and final image.

So this busy semester has finally come to an end. I have to say I'm pretty proud of the outcome of this final assignment of the year.

First we have the concept picture which I used as a guide. I didn't quite get the positioning right in the 3D model though :(

Here is a greyscale light test to show... well... the lighting.

And here is the FINAL IMAGE in all it's glory!

Weeks 45 - 50, Character Design.

Below is a character design I made as part of the 45-50 assignment. We basically have to make a character and background in 6 weeks, taking it from basic sketches to full 3D render in that time.

Here is my turn around for the character.

The style guide was the work of famous american puppeteer Jim Henson who created such shows as The Muppet Show, Sesame Street and the darker, more mature films The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth.

The character was supposed to be a "mediterranean villager" and mine became the Inn/barkeeper of the town.

Assignment extravaganza!

Here are some pictures I have made over the last couple of months.

This picture I made during a drawing course. The theme was "robot graveyard" and we had to use values to make it look interesting.

The next picture was also made in drawing class. We were given several photos of different buildings in different architectural styles and we were to make a unique piece where all the styles would combine. Behold the Chimaera castle!

Here are some abstract pieces from the design class. The idea was to play with lines and shapes to make an interesting picture describing a concept or feeling. The upper one is supposed to describe romance and the lower one represents jazz music.

This is a clay maquette made in the "introduction to design" class. The background was later added in photoshop. The character is a wolf from Nei Gaiman's story The Wolves in the Walls.

This is a matte-painting made in Photoshop class. The building is the treasury in the ancient city of Petra situated in modern day Jordan.

Another picture made in photoshop class. It was supposed to be the prelude to a fight between the McDonalds mascot Happy and a character of our own choice.

New comic in the works!

Well, it's been some time since I posted new material, so i thought I'd post a panel from a new comic I'm working on as an artist.

The comic is called "Landnáma" and is a fictionalized version of Hrafna-Flóki Vilgerðarson's journey to Iceland and the perils he and his companions must face in the new land.

The script and story is written by Alexander Dan Vilhjálmsson.

Hell! It's about time...

I made this wonderful storyboard for my portfolio.


This fish is probably smarter than any human, having discovered the shrimp-drawn carriage, the treadmill and the electric motor in one day!

Well. Here are some new pictures:

The first one is a bizarre living room in a fairy palace. The fae don't really bother to think about gravity when designing their abodes in the otherworld...

I got some feedback on my stuff from the powers-that-be at the animation school an they said that my pictures could use a little more movement so i made another picture of Aquila which i hope qualifies as dynamic.

Finally. I have a picture that i made for the purpose of showcasing my knowledge of perspective

New pics.

A couple of new pictures:

Gunnvor is the daughter of a frost giant who was killed by the god Thor at the giant Thrym's wedding reception. Having no family to speak of left, she now aimlessly wanders the woods of Jotunheim. At first she swore to avenge her father's death but then realized it was an impossible feat.

After all. Who is she to even dream of defeating the god of thunder?

And here is a picture i made of a flotilla of starships.

New character designs.

It's been a busy couple of days, but it payed off: Three new pieces completed.

The first is the insidious villain Dockroach who at the height of his scientific career was accidentally showered with toxic chemicals resulting in his deformed appearance. He now dwells in the sewers underneath the city driven insane by the experience. 

His sole dream: To cover the entire surface world with OOZE!!!

Next up is Va'Nyeh, Herald of the End Times. A primordial being of indescribable horror and god-like powers with an equally alien and malevolent mindset. All It wants is to destroy all things in existence. 

Can It be stopped?

And finally there is King Logan of the Sarkythians, a nomadic warrior people.

Gjörið svo vel!
