|Children in a Red Cross orphanage|
The objective of these illustrations is to "inform" the viewer of what the different parts are, how they come together, and in general how it works.
There was supposed to be a total of four illustrations: Blow-Up view, cutaway view, x-ray view, and colored (to show what the materials are). The cutaway was omitted since the little gadget is transparent.
They still haven't been corrected by the tutor, so there will probably be some changes later :)
We were to produce 5-6 versions of this valve: Pencil shading, color pencil, simple lineart, as well as three more done in three different coloring techniques of the student's choice. This one is the watercolor one. The rest are still with my tutor, so can't upload them til I get them back :)

Painted with photoshop, and inspired by a reference, which
I've lost the adress to! :(
A sketch I made for Swedrift.com's background. I'm redisigning the whole site as commission work, which makes things even more crazy, since I still have 4 university projects that need to be finished by next week :( Wish I was 10 years younger.. Didn't get so tired back then!
As you can see the two most vibrant colors are blue and yellow, Sweden's flag colors :) It's just prefect and looks quite bad-ass (in conrast to what it's like now) when filtered for the background!

I really REALLY did enjoy studying color keys and coloring my storyboard panels, although I didn't really have time to paint more than three as I have my parents, as well as brother and his family visiting this week, so I had a great time slacking off at the forests and towns of sweden and stuff ;)

Ok, I'm not in love with myself or anything but this was done upon a request coming from my father.. I can't refuse anything coming from him of course :)
I don't think it'll be refined any further this week though as I'm working on a storyboard project for uni!

I've just watched an amazing tutorial by Lois and picked up some fun ideas which made the whole sketching process a lot simpler and easier :) Kudos to her, she's amazing!
This is only a close-up image of her face. The full one can be viewed at my DevART gallery

A lil close-up of my recently refined painting :) The full painting can be viewed at my DevART http://rainytown.deviantart.com gallery. I want to put it in CGS too but I think it should be a lil more "complete" first :)
University application period is over now, and I'm waiting to know which one I'll be getting into. I'm hoping it will be LiU mostly because it's close, but it's also a very good university.

I just had to say.. I hate Lady Gaga. In fact, I can't stand her. She's silly, shallow, and so bloody annoying. Why do people like her beats the hell out of me. She shouldn't be called lady gaga even, but lady habla.

I was supposed to be studying today, but spent 6 hours doing some painting exercises instead :P Now I'm stuck doing homework in the middle of the night. Anyway, the result was this painting. The aim of the exercise was to try recreating a reference photo with photoshop. The original photo was taken by Ukiko , and can viewed here.

I really like this sci-fi afro girl. I've been watching too much sci-fi for my own good recently haha :)

I've tried out a few skin-tone rendering tips taken from the course. I really like the outcome.

and I've been doing some further refining on my cold snowflake girl. She used to look so flat!
As for my new layout.. I t hink it looks a little too girly so might change it a little more later, but I'm so glad to rid myself of the cramped-up old one :)

My prop concept for an ongoing uni-project. Basically steam-punk combined with some contemporary geometric shapes. I'm still new to perspective, but can still see it's kindof off :p That's what happens when someone leaves themselves with just one day to work on something!
