I’m a digital modeller and character artist originally from Bergen, Norway. I specialize in sculpting in ZBrush and character art in general, but I’m also proficient in other disciplines such as texturing, lighting, rendering and concept development. I oftentimes take a project through from the first brush-stroke in the concept sketch to the final tweak in compositing.
I have a passion for creation, particularly towards vfx and animation. I’m also very eager when it comes to CG education; I’ve written several tutorials for a variety of softwares, including MODO, ZBrush and Maya to mention some. My tutorials have also been published in 3D Artist, 3D Creative and Digital Art Masters 9. I’m also the co-founder of FlippedNormals.com, a newly established site aimed at bringing CG expertise to the masses.
My primary skills are sculpting, modeling, retopology, lighting, rendering and texturing.
