The best art direction i've ever read

I recommend highly if u havent read it. Really good info it gives you the perspective of how they did and something you can keep in mind while working with games.

I eat 3D for breakfast

Heeeey, long time yes!
I havent been able to paint anything on my freetime work. My whole lifetime are almost in 3D. That means I go to work, produce 3d, in lunchtime reading PC-forum, after work go home and study UDK and Unity. That's what Im doing everyday, I am not telling it is not fun actually it is awesome fun. I love what I do and I want to continue what I am doing. I cant imagine how much I learned in a game company, not only learning using software but by working in team. But still I sometime thinking of painting something, I'd better fill some gaps so I can paint something...yes yes.

Rough concept

Hi hi! I have started with a new scene, I did a rough sketch of how my scene will almost look like. I want some cartoon and realism in it, the mood color is hard to choose either bw or rainbow color. I havent seen any env artist done a bw scene before, so I might give it a try. It should be cool if it cartoon but in a cool way.
I will start with the modelling today let me see how far i can come today.

More love and less random brushes

I found out I have changed my painting style, it was before a random abstract style I had. Now it seems I use only two brushes and it works really fine for me. It makes my paint more precise and show more shape than an abstract shape. So am I becoming better?

måndag 25 oktober 2010

I couldnt!

Hey man when I havent painted a while I start to get frustrated on things, everytime I see someones art I just think automatically I need a pen now and start to draw something out of it. Darn it is like a drug to me, I was thinking of sleep right now but I couldnt refuse to do a speedpaint just for fun. And here you go I came out haha!!! I also feel relief LOOOL!!!

söndag 17 oktober 2010

What the heck...

Oh my I am not happy with the paint, I spent like 2 days straight to get it what I want but I decided to move on. I wanna do 3d now, and I have to make a good one. I already have one in mind. Something with 3d, yes!

lördag 16 oktober 2010

Work in progress 2...

Yo yo, so I cut the idea of concepting a fantasy with dragon and angel bla bla etc.
I decided to do a badass look alike monster mountain with the world biggest mouth ever.
More to come on progress 3, listening to knockins heavens door. LOL

söndag 3 oktober 2010

A good start?

I did a really rough sketch and I was a bit slow today, I was thinking over and over what I wanted to paint today but still couldnt find any clue. So I came up with I only painted one or two medieval paintings before so why not paint the third one. This time I will not use any ref, textures or any help from the internet :), it will be pure as traditional art hehe. Now I will spend some time with it, until I get it done. This will take some time and I have no worry. But I want to put this on my portfolio later.

More studies

Hello I have done some studies now, and I have painted some few paintings today.
I promised myself today I gonna paint at least 5 paints and I did wohoo now it is more than 12 at midnight haha. Ok some are crappy and some I have no idea what but it is only studies. I will paint more tomorrow, maybe two paints this time I will put more time and energy on them. More coming...

måndag 27 september 2010

No art will be posted a while now

Yes it is true I gonna quit...Thats a joke!
Unfortunaly I need to go back and study some art stuff, there is something I have missed and now trying to refill it. I dont know how long it will take but this is extremely important for me and good for future work. I need to upgrade myself by study some art and environment art from a guy named Adam from PC. That guy is awesome!

Soldier of fortune 1o2 the best classic gore game ever:)

I cant say, this is one of the most funniest game I ever played when I was a kiddo.
Still it rox cause they put into so much effort in cutting them into pieces in details.
The favourite weapon for 1 would be the plasma gun. And in 2 would be the shotgun.

Mattepaint tutorial

This is a cheap and fast method to do it if you are in hurry or just want to get something done as possible. I am not calling this is cheating, I am just helping you save time as it comes to deadline or money.
1. For getting a scene you can take which photo you like, I usually take a wide photo with some buildings. This is a quick way to do is you already have all things done here. Best is to go out and take photos on buildings and stuff, collecting your own ref library is the best.
2.Now I usually create a blue channel for masking, and separate the sky and the ground for each layer. That way I can easily switch in between layer and work easier. I always start with the rough paint to see where the eyes point first in, it is easy the tower of course.
3.And now I am adding some details, now you can choose to add texture to it or you can paint some texture, I choose to paint because this is anyway a sketch. But it is good to add some extra texture for more details of course. In mattepaints the vantage point is extremely important. Without the point it is hard to catch the viewers interest. Believe me I have done a lot of mistakes too.
The last part I regret what I did so I delete the bottom part because I dont want the style to look like Dylan Cole hehe.

Over 10,000 views on my sketchbook!

Wooo I got more than 10,000 views from Mattepainting and it is still growing.
Here is the link:
To get get more views I need to become better, its hard to become better then doing internship full time at studio. I dont have so much free time to do. But if I wake up very early over the weekends I have time enough to do at least one perfect work.
I need to plan stuff...cya later!

måndag 13 september 2010


Ugh!!! I need to punish myself, I have played too much BC2 and I need to quit. It is destroying my plans to preparing my second portfolio. I have only weekends and some free time at night. So actually I dont have enough time, I need to focus now.
Its hard now when no one is telling you, I have to set my deadlines. Oh yea here is a paint, I havent painted a while so I took a random picture just for a bit practise to get started.

lördag 21 augusti 2010


Ok anyway I did today a progress of a mattepaint, I can explain a bit how I did.
1. First I painted a rough sketch and put some basic color in it. I usually do this first to get a view and an idea of how the result would be in the end.
2.Now when I get an idea of the mood I start to search over some photos (digging up some photos from my library) and refix the light and shadow and color of photos. It is really important to fix the view and size of the photos to fit with the environment. Ok I added some dummies the details will be last now focus on the rough first.
3.Ok now for the details, I mixed with some buildings from 3dtotal and my own and did some paintover to them. Now for the details and details and details I added two layers that balance the mood of the whole paint. Now I am pretty happy with it, hope you learnt something:)

Starting a new project now

After some paints I start to get some idea from the paintings and I wanna do one more chinese environment in 3d. This one is going to be lots of dirt dirt and dirt. It will going to have a day light and warm sun. Im not sure if it will going to be sci fi or steam punk. I need to watch some anime movies and some games to get some inspiration from them. And want to learn some advance lighting from UDK, they have some awesome light features that I wanna use. All is planned and now I am doing a schedule.
This is going to be fun:=)

lördag 7 augusti 2010

At Helsinki

I picture of my current workstation at home when I am not at work. I doodle some ideas and stuff to my next own project for the second portfolio. Outside are very loud of all those cars,people walking around, bus and railway trains, basically it is 5min by walk from the centre of Helsinki. I couldnt work today cause my apartment was 30 degrees I couldnt focus of what I wanted to concept. I hope tomorrow will be better.

In Helsinki doing my internship now

Well well well, It is pretty good actually now. I have been in Helsinki now for 6 days and 6,5 months left. I started to like Helsinki and the game company I am doing my internship in. But one thing I will always miss is Maya and Sweden. And I cannot forget it but I have Maya 2011 in my laptop but dont have time to use while I have to learn to use Blender within a week. So sorry no art today, I left my wacom at the my workstation
at the office. But soon I will take it home so I can start to paint and do my own projects besides.

Vacation soon is over back to work!!

Well this is different I am not going back to school and study anymore this time I am going to Helsinki for internship wohoo!
I am going on Fri, I am really excited over going to work with creating games in iphone together with a real game company. But on the other hand I will miss friends and family in a half year. I dont know if I will continue work there after internship but hopefully I would or hope. I need to begin pack my stuff now.

lördag 26 juni 2010

Ahhh some vacation wouldnt hurt a bit.

I am now relaxing and enjoying the sun outside my house in earth.
I should take it really cool right now and trying to enjoy and not over thinking
the possibility on what I should paint next day. Never bring work to your vacation as my teacher taught me. I had really fun with friends and just hanging out that I havent done for half year now, I deserve my reward. I will be away a couple of weeks now, since I have my summer holiday and still thinking of my speedpaints and Maya but I need some rest for now. I´ll be back soon, I promise that. Glad midsommar!

Never give up

I think most of the students at my class are really happy they have now internship at other studios. For me is just a beginning into the real thing, it sounds almost fake for what I am saying. But to be real I am really serious about having the best quality of my work. My first trip is to gain experience, I am planning to work hard as much as I did at school and also I am planning to create a new portfolio while I am doing internship. I am not an artist I want to stay and work my whole life in the same studio, I want to evolve and become something I havent achieved before in my life since WOW almost destroyed my life and I am trying rebuild what I have lost.

Seems more relevant

Hello, I have tried looking after apartments in Uppsala it is mega difficult to find it. England have decided to say no, I havent showned enough strong presentation about myself. If I cant find any apartments in Uppsala it would be Finland. Both are good and I cant say no to both of them it have to be only one. My last chance is a guy he said he can share a room but he have decide it before 4pm today. If he aint want to then it will be in Finland. Wish me Luck!

fredag 4 juni 2010


Holy shit it is so nice weather outside, people are insane in Sweden I thought the english people were sick but here are the same. I mean that the sun has been around few days people start to dress lightly and go out even it is only 15 degree in the shadows. I do better go later and have an ice cream at the beach I dont like the sun because I get freckles if going around in the sun. Well I better start to paint something to keep my skills in default. Here is a progress!

lördag 29 maj 2010


LOL I was really bored today, and tired so I saw this in youtube. This guy did a brilliant job, I liked the hillarious movie. I should share this to everybody, cool movie though.

I dumped two companies

I got two internships, one is snowcastleco and one is imaginationstudio. I dumped the other two because they didnt fit into my type of interest. When I have so much of choices then I had to choose which of them would fit to ´my goals. But these are not my first prio, my first is codemaster, because I know that if my first internship are from a big company and also in England would fit really good in my cv. Even though if I am not good enough I will always have a ref I have worked at codemasters. It will be a very good start for me, and I will be much better than I am today. Wow I cant wait I am going to England tmrw and on friday meet them face to face. I am really looking forward to it. Wish me Luck! Bye!

More interview is coming

I got one more interview from Imagination Studio they want me to have a phone call interview next tuesday. I have no idea why they want me in, since they have done loads of animated stuff. I hope they checked the right portfolio I have no animation in it anyway, only environment stuff. Well who knows? Anyway enjoy my random paint.

Issue or Tissue?

Now I found out a problem with moving to Norway is the money. I dont have a chance by living by myself and paying both the rent and food. I will cost me more than 6000kr per month, I dont have that kind of money yet. There is only one last chance is to ask people around if I could live the same house as they and pay half the rent I might would live. Or I could stay at a friends house but a half year is quite a lot and they are too friendly but let me hope if I get more other internship opportunities. Oh Here is a random Ironman Paint enjoy!

onsdag 12 maj 2010

There are 2 companies now who want me

Now there are 2 companies who desperately want me, one of them is Oslo and Gothenburg. Oslo they said I didnt need to come for interview they want me to do internship right after my education ends. And Gbg they want me for an interview. I am more into Oslo because the salary is quite hot. But I will stay tune, Oslo can be my last chance if I cant find any other companies outland. My goal is to come into codemasters or Helsinki. I havent send mail to Ubisoft yet, because their contact sux. I need to find it before its too late.

måndag 10 maj 2010

But yeah, I got one interview from a small game company in Oslo they are interested and wanted to meet me. The date is not require yet, but I am waiting for the details. Well I need to continue to send some mail now. Better go!

Not dead yet!

I am currently working hard to collect my best stuff I have worked over the past year. To bring 4-5 stuff to portfolio showing the progress I have done. There a lot of stuff I need to put in the garbage like characters and vehicles. It feels that my strong side is environment because I am insane at what happens everywhere I see and the lighting is most important, without lighting the scene will be crap ofc.

No worry about searching job as an environmental artist

While listening at Linkin Park Divide and working on my portfolio I kinda feel some hope of there is chance to get a job as an environment artist. I read some of the forums and listened of highly experienced artists the reason to have a big chance to get a job is to have the best portfolio you have showing maximum 5 top best work and trying to be highly skillful in school. Here is a link I read from

Things are going really good now

It has been quite good at school but some things needed to change while working the same workflow. I need to be more focus on the overall of stuff even though it is going really fast to produce out buildings. Just need to add some more love into my work.

tisdag 12 januari 2010

I need to shit out more stuff

Since the new year is over I have been kinda slow to produce more stuff lately.
In my mind I am thinking of painting stuff on the other side I want to produce more 3d stuff. It is of course impossible and further this week we are going to create our portfolio and showreel. I feel that I dont have enough stuff to show even I have suffered a lot of working my ass off at school. So what's happening? Here are the newest 3d stuff I did recently.
