Analogue art session

Inbetween all the vertex-moving it's back to the basics! Traumatised by watercolors back in my youth, I have dedicated little time for painting in general. Acrylics however were fun to work with, like melted plastic!

Keep it low-poly

This is my first rigged character: the birdman! I had so much fun trying different poses. Hours could pass.

Still image basics

At school we are learning the basics of 3d graphics. We designed a hotel room and two different sets of lighting for it. The gold pattern/decoration on the left wall and the carpet I made with procedural textures. Rendered with Mental Ray and some postwork in PS.

This was my second major personal project at 3d modeling. I own a thousand thanks to 3d-palace and their tutorials. At the time I didn't have a clue about adjusting the lighting (or texturing for that matter) and you can see some ugly jigsaw shadow lines. Too many polygons, no smoothing, weird solutions...

Above is my design for a 'Helsinki Design Capital 2012' poster.

Preassignments for Degree Programme in Media at Helsinki Metropolia University (specialisation in 3D animation and visualisation).
1. Caries robots - design the future of dental care
2. Illustrate an old Finnish folkstory of a woodchopper, use image sequences, two pages, no words

Robots I modeled in 3dsMax, which was an adventurous 3 weeks for me. Apart from the transparent tongue, and the bit that is missing from the horses behind, I am quite happy with the results. And I got accepted!

Illustrating for Workshop Pälviä

Every now and then.
