Bayero! Here's an animation test I made last year when we had Greg Duffel over to teach us. It was a two weeks long assignment, we could use any character we wanted, and we had to animate to music. It was a great experience having Greg, he could so much stuff about animation. Not just the principles, but everything from how it was made back in the early days to all kinds of tips and tricks, not to mention all the stories :)
Design Class Assignments Here are some of my hand-in's from Lawrence Marvit's (brilliant) design class last year.Duration; one week. Assignment: We where handed out some funky chololate ice cream (fresh from FØTEX) that we had to taste, and then make graphic representation of how we thought the taste look like if it would take a shape in space. In other words: Draw the taste :)
The design had to be flat, only pure black and pure white, solid shapes and last but not least; abstract.
Assignment: Make an abstract design that sais "science fiction". Has to be black/white, flat, abstract. This was later reffered to as "the stoner drawing". Wonder why hehe.
Assignment: Volume. Drawing missing. :(
In the last assignment we got to do an illustration for the fairytale "the Ginger Bread Man". No rules in this one, other than that we had to use all the stuff we had learned from the previous days.
I decided to make an illustration from the place where the little gingerbreadman is chased through the woods by a big nasty pig.
My thumbnails for the last assignment...
Crystalline Here's a poster and a DVD-cover I made for the DADIU computer game "Crystalline". Today is the last day on the production and we are struggeling (mostly the programmers) to get all the content into the game and make it work in general. I'm looking forwoard to see it done, it's gonna be good :)
The advantage of never cleaning your desk is that you can suddenly run in to a lot of stuff that you can't even remeber to have drawn. This guy I actually remember, I think it's about a year and a half old, and it has been lying on the same spot on my desk all that time heh. I wonder how it looks under my bed, hmmm...
Moleskin sketches Here are a few of my scrimblings from my last sketchbook. They are drewn on the ferrey and on a fieldtrip to "Randers regnskov". The ferrey was espesially interesting I think because there's so many strange and funny people there. Every thing from old women playing on slots-manchines to truckers filling up their bags with cigarettes from the TAX-free shop.
P.s: I hope none of the victims of my caricatures will feel sad. I could have drawn them so you would've looked nice, but...well, you don't! No no no, sorry, they just turned out that way, and Christina Aguilera sais you're all beatiful!
I drew this little guy the other day. I basically based him on Calvin (from Calvin and hobbes... duh). So I have this little story for him, and planning to do a little 2D animation, but... Well it's probulary not going to happen, I know myself that good... Maybe :)
