    Nice work in After Effects, I'm pretty intrigued to know how you did the 3rd one.

    Great paintings. I think the composition of the sci-fi soldiers piece has a fundamental problem, in that the rock spire is silhouetted against the moon, and automatically becomes the focal point.

    Awesome man! Now all you need to do is get into the habit of regular updates

    And we should start skyping again sometime--it was a lot fo fun and I learned so much from you. I finished school now, so will have more free time (although my schedule is busy for the next week or so).

    Thanks guys! Good crits HunterKiller

    I'll just post this and get some sleep. I made a new blog for my..ehm...thoughts? The first post is a bit noisy, but I think I got some of my thoughts down. At least a little. My plan is to keep track of my thoughts on such thing as life and motivation etc. I'm constantly thinking of how to get my and others thoughts on the subject out there, and I think a blog is the best way. That way you can skip the unnecessary information and jump right into the bits and pieces you want to see/read.

    Anyhow, here is the link to the post. maybe someone can extract something useful from it. Who knows!

    Time for bed! Good night everyone

    Another artless post :/

    I was discussing perspective...stuff...with Ethan Karnopp today, and after doing some searching around, I found this thread:

    Draw a perfect square having two vanishing points

    and decided to make a tutorial on the subject.

    Here is the result:


    and here is the tutorial:



    All the jpg's can be found on my blog.

    Mila: Thanks!

    XENöSIS: Thank you!

    Mark Tarrisse: Haha thank you! it always goes back to 4 once it gets 5 sooo I'm pretty sure people have agreed that this is a 4 star book, which I'll be happy to agree with for just a little while longer... I have a bit of studying to do to catch up with them 5*ers

    soooo those "regular" updates have been feeling really good, so I'll try to keep up. I'm trying my best to get good in many areas, as you see a few posts earlier I've started in AE, which I try to spend at least 1 "project" a day on, I'm also trying to learn to keep up with several different pipelines, in AE that is matte-painting, camera-tracking and so on, but I also want to learn 3D, which is how I got into 2D from the beginning, really. But I'm rusty, so here is some practice...probably my first model in 4-5 years D: I used to think it was really boring, but it turns out it just takes a bit of patience Hopefully I can finish this model the way i've intended too... I've already learnt a lot about how to create smooth to hard edges...kinda like painting in away.... There are still some "artifacts" left on the main-mesh which I'm currently working on.. I also had some problems getting my blueprints reading well on every max startup...Right now i'm working on blurry ones (not visible in the render..but trust me, in viewport they are absolute shite, and i'm working more off of ref, than from the blueprints as soon as the main is done D: )

    anyway...enough talk...here is my work-in-progress the one on the right is a low-poly mock-up I made pretty quickly to warm up. I'm also using parts of it to fill in the missing main-model for the render, if you couldn't tell =D





    Also thanks to abee for doing some supervising on my modelling "techniques"!

    Thanks guys!

    So today my "regular updates" will take a break. I'm going to Ayia Napa in cyprus for a week! My first "summer vacation" ever I'm really looking forward to it!

    Anyways, I thought i'd drop my progress on the f22 raptor on here before I leave I'll bring my sketchbook and make sure to get some sketchin' done. I'm also planing on visiting varosha/famagusta which is supposed to be a really cool ghost-town We'll see how that goes.





    and here is to show all the artifacts i'm dealing with 3D is really fun, but it takes some patience and knowing the program a little better to get everything sharp and tidy. It's going in the right direction though, and I feel every hard edge is easier than the last one so...some progress I guess.



    Cya in a week! And thanks for all the support, guys

    Nyctalgia: I'll try!

    Velocity Kendall: A lot of fun, but also a lot of patience and technique D= I'm learning slowly but surely though and I have a lot of friends who give me tips and stuff, so I can't complain!

    DstraX: Thank you! Bit woobly still D: I'll be working on those edges tonight


    oookkkaaay...so back in sweden. From 40 degrees to 6 in less than 5 hours... D: Anyways, I had a really great week in Ayia Napa! Now time for last week of school, then no more school (ever. unless its a badass artschool ofc! ) wooohoo!

    Some more modelling on the way, but today I felt like painting. I'm been drawing/looking a lot at airplanes lately, and I feel that it's influencing my design-choices a lot already. Anyway, its a lot of fun!

    Strange_Purple: thanks so much for your words! I'm a bit more serious now than "before" so I'm trying to hit the next logical step as often as I can ^^ coffee is helping me!

    Okay, so I definitely didn't think this would ever happen haha ,but two days ago I graduated! Finally done with my social science studies

    [Warning, kinda drunk]


    Also, the day before graduation, I got asked by my school to hold some art-classes for the 7-9th graders, and I'll be "covering" for the real teacher, tomorrow, already!

    On other notes, here is a something I started doodling on yesterday:



    and it turned into this during this morning:

    Congrats on graduating! I expect you to post twice as much art now though


    Last piece is really nice...interesting design, good edge control, good values etc. I find the transition of the greeny colour in the foreground to the purpley colour in the background a bit sudden though. It is also a little ambiguous where the ship is. Is it some sort of landing strip? Maybe add another ship or two in the background a bit further off--it would also help push depth and scale a little more.
