painting light

I finally found some time again to paint and I would like to share some of the results.
One is a little steampunk/ art-deco inspired character based on the sketch I posted a little while ago.

The other one is loosly inspired by a little scene I witnessed on a street that while driving by on a bike.
On ordinary dad in the middle of a group of bikers and tough guys, who is clearly the coolest guy around, even though - or maybe because- he wasn’t trying to be cool at all.
My goal there was to create a painterly and loose piece that tells a cute, littey story.
The challange was to capture the light mood that I had in mind and also finding a composition and color/ light scheme that would tie the composition together and make it read well despite the busy background and number of characters.

painting studies

I wanted to try out some different techniques and light settings and so I decided to use one of my sketches and do a couple of quick paints with it. Some are very rough, some a bit more polished. I played around with compositions and light direction as well as colors- still lots to learn, but this was a very fun exercise.

mogust - not quite movember yet

A new paint I did recently - I was going for cartoony shapes combined with a polished and more realistic lighting and finishing. I also include my sketch that I based it on ( I think I posted that one before)

Sugar Jump

Another game that I did the design (character, background and user interface) and animation for was released a couple of days ago. Here's a screenshot, that shows some game stills and infos. It was a fun, little project to work on and it made me happy to read in the reviews that the players enjoy the design.
