Moved out of my small dorm room in Denmark, back home to Sweden. Before returning to Sweden, me and most of the pro course class went to Annecy in France, to the big animation festival. What a blast! I’m soooo going there next year if I can afford it. :)
After these 4 months I have made a lot of new inspiring friends. I don’t regret the decission on going to The Animation Workshop instead of accepting one of the job offers I had back in December. Sure, I’m not 100% sure what my next adventure will be but things are looking bright. I lost my opportunities from december, but new opportunities are slowly appearing. I’m really happy and excited!
I want to go on more journeys like this one. Feels like I have evolved as a person and artist. I miss the period of my life when I moved to new places every second year or so. Moving to Denmark for 4 months really recharged my batteries and I can’t wait until next time I change environment and meet new inspiring people!
Top photo is from Denmark right outside the school - we are walking with tons of home made pizza to one of our teachers to celebrate his last day. The two small photos are from Annecy and the bottom one is my home today! <3
Some more character sketches for Chapter 1 of The Din!
The captain of Explorer 7 and a younger Lorentz, a random bartender, Sixten (Chauffeur and servant of the Emilio family) and finally John Smithens (Major of Richbrille).
My good friend Kichisu - game artist and fellow Land - asked me how to make a walk cycle in 4 to 6 frames. So I quickly made this breakdown of a 4-framed walk cycle to explain it as simple as possible. This mostly work in flash or pixel art but if you push the poses the cycle will look fine in high resolution as well!
These poses also work perfectly in front view. But be aware of the hips/shoulders tilting and make sure to make the “arm-swing-front” and “arm-swing-behind” different in graphical shape to make it easier for the eye to understand the movement.
This is my Final Project of 4 weeks At the 3D Character Animation (Professional Course of 15 weeks) at The Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark.

I have to say that scans of kichisu’s originals/traditional art never do them 100% justice. I’ve seen them plenty of times irl! Really crisp and vivid coloring style in traditional medium. I say: go for it!
A quick drawing I did for my friend Tess a while back, to encourage her in the final crunch of coloring Wicked Hero before SPX/SIS in Stockholm!
Wicked Hero is a new awesome comic project by Lotta and Tess. Both of them are fantastic artists and story tellers. I’m honored to know them! You should check it out! :) The prologue is released and the first chapter is in the making!
Animation Tutorial by Giovanni Braggio
Just an important disclaimer everyone! I’ve seen a lot of reblogged posts on this video sourcing back to me.
Just so you know: I did not make this video! As it says in the description, it was animated by Giovanni Braggio. Everyone in our class are helping out spreading this video as he released it, that’s why I posted it here. He doesn’t have a tumblr, so please try to stick to the source which is the URL to his video on vimeo. :) Thanks!
animation tutorial part. 1 AKA “the secret of animation”
My classmate Giovanni Braggio made this wonderful tutorial video on how to animate in Maya as a final project at the Professional Animation Course I have attended to at The Animation Workshop in Viborg.
It’s a real eye opener. Watch it. To the finish. You won’t regret it!
Some more character sketches I did for Chapter 1 of The Din. The misshape family.
Lotsa Greggs! Doodled while waiting to meet up with my class mates one last time. Age ranges from 14 - 18 here… Good practise! Need to make the age more clear in every chapter, it’s been very difficult this far. But fun!
Here’s an other shot. Looks funny from this angle compared to the real camera. Hehee. Gotta love those eyes and that eye lid.
2 days left… ! So much polishing left to do but I’ll do my best… :D
