It is my birthday!

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 19, 2017, 11:42 PM


Hello! I have to unfortunately announce that I am one year older, 21 years old since birth in fact. This is not really that important, just another arbitrary number. But what I want to talk about is that I feel so old, so very, very old. It is horrible, my beard keeps growing. Another thing is that there is so much to do. Ergh.

But since I am getting so old I thought this was a good opportunity to talk about my commission stuff. I really want to get into doing commissions, I don´t really get any commissions and I am super cheap, so I ask if you know people that would be interested in commissioning art from me. As it is for me it would be really valuable with some experience with commissions. But I know that I have a LOT to work on regarding my art. (If you are interested in Commissioning me you can head over to artistsnclients.com/people/Sof… or PM me)

I also have some great news! I am currently working really hard on my Fabletorch worldbuilding project. Im also in the works on a graphic novel for it currently with the temp title FabelTorch: The First expedition, it is about the Jakaiarian people leaving their island for the first time in hundredels of years to explore pushed by the overpopulation the island suffers from. The main character has had the urge of exploring since a young age and applies for the expedition with unexpected repercussions. It will be a long time before I`ll finish this tho, haven´t really finished the story in the abstract yet, and a long way from doing reiterations yet. But for the meantime I have begun painting things for the project. Enjoy the Pelagoose from the jakaiar island.

At the other hand I am also in a project with a couple of friends. We have a dude going to game programming school, a guy going to game development school, a girl going to music production school in England and me doing the art. I am very optimistic about this current project even tho as for now we have just gotten some fundamentals on point. We are planning to do a 2D sidescrolling action game in a modern/fantasy/sci-fi hybrid setting. I can´t show much stuff for this project yet, but I will in time. We are working on making a page where we can make posts and updates for it.

But that is that. I will thank all you guys that interact and do stuff with me here, it is a lot of fun and helps me having more fun with art too. Without a community a artist is basically dead, like many of you saw at the new Vsauce show on Youtube Red the human brain does not work well without a response or stimuli from others, and it is really hard to motivate yourself without it. I´m happy to join in on any fun, do critiques, get critiques and so on. So have a nice weekend and be creative! :D

Introduction:

Herrow! I am a Norwegian artist and designer that study art and philosophy at Nansenskolen. I do a lot of fantasy illustrations and concept art but I struggle a bit to find my niché in art. Currently I work on my graphic novel and worldbuilding project FableTorch, and on the side I work with some programming, music and game development students in the group Levitating Studio where we make games in Unity.

No problem! I find your graphical approach to painting interesting, might learn a thing or two from watching you.

hei, du plasserte de to bildene jeg lagde i feil kategori. du plasserte dem i digital kunst når begge var tradisjonell kunst. kunne du være så snill og fikse det? :-)
