Monday evening...


Christmas Cards

Been a while since I have been doing anything in watercolour. These are done on regular copy paper... Not perfect for water colours. Well, figured these would make nice christmas cards...

Rain, research

Today I did (among other things) a lot fo research on what to do with 2D rain. I am still a bit uncertain about this kind of rain on top of 3D. But fact is, it may just be a lot quicker to do the rain in 2D. we have some closeups of something on the ground, and rain pouring down, which means we need some way to show the contact with the ground. My main source of inspiration on this is Howl's Moving Castle and My Neighbor Totoro.
I hope we can do camera moves along witht his as well..

DLO pose testing, Andrew

We are in some kind of crunch here at the Under the Fold project. We had to redesign our characters and remodel them for our DLO - which is currently on hold due to this.
Today I had the pleasure of testing Andrew for DLO. He is really fun to work with even at this stage, with very limited amount of controllers and no facial expressions.
Can't wait for animation to begin!

a LOT of sketches

Yes, well, this was quite a lot of stuff... Not sure what to say. I have had a lot of time on trains and at different places. Some of this stuff is for the bachelor project

Animation fixes, midway test pt. 1

I have begun working on my showreel. Or what will one day be a showreel. At the moment it is just filled with half finished stuff that I KNOW I can do better. I just have to put in a lot of extra work. I have started with this shot because I think it is the best 3D dialogue shot I have made. And I am not sure that I will have time to start a new one. And our bachelor film will not have dialogue. Plus it is fun to work with.
i have a nice list of things that needs fixing still.
And a lot of other shots are to be looked at. My hyena, the shot I did when Michael Berenstein was here (non dialogue acting piece, "The wrong speech" and my exam piece. I hope that will be enough along with (hopefully) a couple of shots from our bach film. And perhaps a couple of 2D shots - I think I have one or two that are nice, but lets see.

The weird animals, now with colours

Colours: markers. Been a while since I've been using those.

Lorenor Zorro

This guy is from the mange series One Piece. In Danish he is called Lorenor Zorro, but I know that in other languages he goes by the name Roronoa Zoro or Lorenor Zoro or anything similar. He is my favourite chracter from the series. He is truly awesome. I wish I could make as nice drawings of him as Eiichiro Oda does.

UTF, The Rejecter

Have been assigned the character we have named the "rejecter". He is the person who tells jobseeking people to "go away, we have found our guy."
I do not htink we will go with the ganster type. I don't know where he came from...

Concept for a location UTF

Was thinking worker like houses - not too shabbe, as our character has been taking good care of his son, and priority one would have been making sure they were living in a safe house.
It is quite a feeble attempt, as I have never really been doing any BG work. But it's good enough to go here anyway. :)

Under the Fold, more development

Had a look at the pipeline and naming convention today - I have been assigned of the flattering Pipeline Pippi role. I believe I might have it figured out for now, and turned to visual development again. These are the best sketches of the day.

watercolours, wuhu!

Yes, now they have colours as well. I think they are kind of fun; they sure have been fun to make.


I really like the guy eating a hotdog.
