Most of my time and energy right now is going into making the short vfx film project Mango, so this blog is being a bit neglected. I’m not expecting anyone is actually following this blog anymore, but here is a update anyway!
Here’s a few of my paintings that i’ve done on my free time. All done just for fun, with Painter 12 (except for that fat guy, he was painted in Krita) on a Samsung Slate 7 tablet.
The teaser for project Mango is out!

Here’s a painting i did of an awesome cat. Based on a picture i found when searching for “awesome cat”
Done in Painter 12
Bellow is a picture i painted, just for practice and fun. It’s based on a piece by a great artist called Ali Zafati (click here to see his portfolio on cgtalk)
Done in Corel Painter 12
I’m in Amsterdam! Doing CG for the Blender Foundation and having fun
Our first assignment was to create a short film in 5 days, written by Ton Rosendaal.
You can read more about it on the mango blog:
Haha! I finally got the youtube video embed thing working.
I’ve been doing a lot of research on physics for Mango. The video above shows a few of the tests I’ve made. I wrote about it on the mango blog here:
and also here:
Pre-sale of the Mango DVD just started! Pre-order to support open source development and improve Blenders VFX pipeline.
Also, David Revoy has made some awesome concept art for Mango. Go to the mango blog and check it out!
It’s official. I’m going to be working full time in Amsterdam on Project Mango!
For me the project doesn’t start until March 2012. That means I still have time to prepare and practice on stuff that will be relevant to the project.
Out December my plan is to become a little bit more comfortable with concepting robots, with a combination of 2d and 3d tools. After that I’ll probably do a small VFX project just for practicing things like tracking and general FX-work.
This is going to be cool
Now that the reel is finally finished I can spend some time to expand my skills a bit.
So I bought Corel Painter 12 on a sale a couple weeks back and have been learning the software, watching painting-tutorials and practicing. Bellow you can see a collage of images I’ve made the last few days. They are all unfinished sketches just made for fun (and of course for practicing digital sketching/painting).
Yesterday I removed the old demoreel and replaced it with a new one. And today I sent in my application for project Mango to Ton! Fingers are crossed..
For you who don’t know what project Mango is. It’s a open movie project in Amsterdam.
