    • Lack of motivation and a couple of games

      5 years ago

      Sebastian

      I haven't been very active on the site for a while now, mostly due of my lack of motivation to draw or animate, hence the lack of drawings. My focus has been more directed on finding a job, which still proves to be nigh on impossible in the current state of the swedish job market.
      I got a couple (dozens) of half-made drawings waiting, so hopefully I'll be able to start posting again when I got things sorted out.

      A couple of weeks ago there was a PC game sale, the Humble Origin Bundle, and I happen to have some game keys left over from that purchase. When you purchased the bundle you were given two set of keys for most games, one set of Origin and one set for Steam. In other words, I got a couple of duplicates and I thought that I would give them away. :)

      The games that I got spare keys for are the following:

      Dead Space
      Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box
      Crysis 2 Maximum Edition
      Medal of Honor
      Mirror's Edge
      Battlefield 3
      Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3

      Note, these keys are for EA's platform "Origin". To be able to play any of these games you'll need it.

      So just leave a comment telling which game you would like and I'll send you a message with the corresponding key. smiley1.gif

    • RTX

      Sebastian

      I can't believe that it's almost been two weeks since RTX. It felt weird coming back home and I miss it a lot.

      RTX were a unique experience for me, truly amazing and probably one of the best experiences I've had in a long time. It was my first convention and I truly hope that I will be able to attend more in the near future.

      I met a friends from the site for the first time and also a lot of new amazing people. People were so friendly which made the experience so much better. It was also fun to meet and talk to so many of the crewmembers of RT.

      Hopefully I will meet a lot of you again in the near future and I can't wait until next year. smiley12.gif

    • Practice

      Sebastian

      So I haven't posted any images in a while now and it's mainly because that I'm practicing new styles and techniques. So far I've only scratched the surface of what Photoshop can do, however I've only been drawing for a bit more then three months now.

      Besides practicing I got some projects I want to finish, one involving 3D that might turn out pretty well.

      It might take a while before I post any new drawings that I've done by myself but maybe I'll try and post some of my practice drawings later. :)

      I haven't been very productive the last two weeks due of sickness, job interviews and now BioShock Infinite. So because of this I haven't spent a lot of time with my drawings but I will try to get back on it tomorrow. :)

    • Update and drawing feedback

      6 years ago

      Sebastian

      I would just like to start by saying thank you to everyone that has given me such amazing response on my latest drawing. It 's really great that so many liked it!

      I've not been drawing for that long and I appreciate all the feedback that I've gotten, especially on the Cortana drawing. A bunch of interesting people tweeted me about that drawing, including Jen Taylor who is the voice actor of Cortana (which feels amazing).

      Right now I got a couple of drawings in the making, mostly gaming related. I'm trying to come up with different concepts so I don't just make the same one over and over again.

      I also got most things for RTX ready. I booked my plane tickets a couple of days ago and while in Austin I'll be staying at the Hilton with two others. Can't wait!

      So thank you! smiley0.gif

      Trying to draw something right now that's Halo inspired. It's a bit different from what I've done so far, lets hope it turns out well. smiley1.gif

      So I got a drawing tablet a couple of days ago and I love it. I've spent most of my time practicing and I'm slowly starting to get a hang of the basics. I've never used Photoshop before but luckily I have a couple of great tutorials to help me. In the near future I'll hopefully be able to produce my own creations :)

      My recovery from pneumonia is going better that expected and at the moment it looks like I might be able to travel back to Australia in February! smiley0.gif I have take some things in consideration before I decide though.

        Go for it! =D
        I am done studying for a while. Just wanna get myself a job so I can play games and draw when ever I'm not working. X3
        It was the biggest bitch ever! It was easier to just hold the damn pen with my right hand instead. Luckily enough, I am pretty ambidextrous so I had some control over my hand. Still hard though..

        Looked at Luleå, might give it a shot next year. ^^
        Oh that has to be a nightmare, not being able to use hot keys correctly while working in Maya.

        I went to JTH in Eksjö. tiniest college in the world but they covered lots of ground in two years with focus on either 3D or compositing.
        I get that, the lectures wanted us to use our tablets as well, but I'm a lefty and had to think backwards everytime i was using the controls as well as my tablet cause I was using the wrong hand to type on the keyboard, making it hard as dicks!

        I've consider reading animation at a university, but the only program I've found that's focused on animation requires a artistic test consisting of pen and paper drawings. Simply put it, I would not get past that test. :P
        I loved it the moment I got mine, it also works quite nice when sculpting. smiley1.gif

      • LostInSweden

        5 years ago

        I hear that, had some real in the pain assignments in college..
        There is a certain freedom working with a tablet that you can't achieve with simply a pen. I'm growing to love it. =]

        Texturing can be quite annoying, especially when you're working with something that has a lot of details.
        I found it a lot easier to draw digitally then pen and paper. :)

      • LostInSweden

        5 years ago

        Oh cool! Looking forward to seeing it when it's done then~ ^^
        I remember especially hating texturing in college cause I'm slightly colorblind and have a hard time with that kinda thing…
        I've drawn most of my life, but i only started about 1.5 months ago to draw digitally. =]

      • Sebastian

        5 years ago

        I haven't uploaded anything, but I'm working on a fighting scene project right now that I will upload when it's done (whenever that will be). It entire process takes a while since I do everything from the start; Sculpting/modeling, rigging and animating.
        Began to draw a couple of months ago, only plain drawings though. :)

      • LostInSweden

        5 years ago

        Oh really? i conversed in swedish with another dude and that seemed to work, but none the less, i prefer english anyways~
        Oh cool! Done anything worth showing? =D I dropped out of college cause it wasn't anything for me, I much rather prefer drawing and animate the lazy way instead. X3 less rendering time also.

      • Sebastian

        5 years ago

        Swedish letters has a tendency to look wierd on the site. :P Well I¨m self taught myself, I don't think that makes me any less of an animator then someone who has a degree. :)
        As far as animations I've only worked with 3D, mostly with Maya as well.

      • LostInSweden

        5 years ago

        Oh yeah your a swede too! then why the hell are we conversing in english still then? XD
        I'm no real animator, I'm self taught if you don't count my one year of studying digital visualization, but that was only 3D stuff in Maya..^^'
        Nice to meet you too btw~

      • Sebastian

        Hey, no problem. It's always nice to meet a fellow swedish animator, it's quite rare. :)

      Hell yeah I did! smiley0.gif I am now 200 kr richer! (a friend was stupid enough to bet against me) Italy was sleeping through the game though, they've done good in general but they got slaughtered! Next time I just kind of wish for Sweden to go a little bit further then they did.

      They wouldn't really have to add anything on the extended cut to prove the indoctrination theory, just not shoot it down like they did. Considering they made the thing for their fans and a great amount of them believed (me included) in it, it was a well thought out theory. But they wanted to stick with their God child. smiley0.gif On a random sidenote, did you watch the game?!? smiley0.gif

    • Louise

      6 years ago

      Spoiler junkie as I am I've just watched the extended cut. smiley1.gif They fixed it so you only need 3100 war assets in order to get a good ending, which means I'll have to replay the game if I don't want to get my readiness up. So either way it will take me some time. The thing I had a problem with was bioware basically killing the idea with the indoctrination theory. Otherwise it seems pretty good, not perfect but sure as hell better then the original one. smiley1.gif

      Nope, I meant to, but then I saw that my galactic rediness is down to about 53% And I had to get rid of my only good character in order to get an achievement. Is it any good? I haven't heard anything but complaints this far. smiley1.gif

      Nice! How does he meets his rider, (you know who) under which circumstances? Lol I'm the kind of person that reads the last pages just to know how it ends and then read the whole book.

      Awesome! If you don't mind spoiling one thing for me though, what's the green dragons name? I've been wondering that for quite some time.

    • Louise

      7 years ago

      nope, not yet. Bought gears 3 instead. It's the top thing on my "to do list" though. I've re-read the other three about 7 times now, waiting for the last one to be released. Was it good?

    • Louise

      Nice! Do you have the fourth book yet? Inheritence. It released like the ninth November I think?

      Thanks! I'm planning to get that on a t-shirt lol. Awesome taste in books by the way, haven't met that many people that likes the inheritrnce cycle.
