Doodled a Lorentz before going to bed!
We decided to accept the apartment and we think we got it! Moving in in 2 tweeks. Have yet to sign the contract so… as we say in Sweden: don’t shout hey, until you are across the stream!
(I believe the English saying is: Don’t count your chickens before they hatch)
From my daily log! (Yes, we moved in !)
Everytime I am about to take a shower I reach the back of my head to take out the ponytail. It’s almost been a week since I cut my hair short and I still do this! Haha!
Today, at work, I noticed a noob-mistake in one of my new rigs. Embarrassinnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng. Luckily it was an easy fix with an empty node group. Regained respect from programmer. (Hopefully.)
From my daily log!
I want to show you guys a lovely piece of art that I got from my friend Zoroko!
I commissioned her a while back and I am super happy with the outcome! If you can’t tell, it’s an older Gregg, since I really wanted to see her take on that. :) If you are interested in commissioning Zoroko, check out this post. I truly recommend it! It was a really nice process and I could see WIPs of this piece and give feedback while she worked on it.
For those who don’t know, Gregg is from my webcomic The Din!

The Kickstarter for Amya’s next print project has gone live!
Please check it our here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1530128474/amya-volume-one
Amya tells the story of Faye, a mute spell-touched who lives a sheltered life as the youngest daughter to a great lord. She is burdened with dark dreams of an apocalypse, and it isn’t long until her tranquil life changes when a fateful encounter with a young man sends her on a spiraling journey of self-discovery.
As Faye and her unlikely companions pursue an adventure that is greater than any of them could have anticipated, she discovers how heavy the burden she carries truly is. She is to be the pinnacle of the world’s survival or destruction, and must decide if she wishes to sacrifice her own humanity for the world — or the world for her humanity.
Please consider supporting the campaign by either spreading the word or donating. It would mean so much to us! Amya is our dream as well as our passion. We need your help to take it further!
All my thanks,

I try soooo hard to not take it personal, I really do! But as a fellow animator, I need to put some words out there.
What would entertainment industry (let alone artists) be today, if we never explored different techniques & medium?
In some communities people even go as far to say this way of producing is not even real animation. It makes me furious! How about creative people stop bashing creative people? Isn’t it hard enough as it is in this industry?
I sure do not look forward to the hate storm when Polygon Pictures announce how they produce Ronia the Robber’s Daughter. Considering the studio’s other successful productions, I’m almost certain what kind of tech they are using. XD
Not saying people shouldn’t speak their opinion of what style/tech they prefer - or rant if their childhood hearts are broken. If this kind of CGI is not your cup of tea on a reboot, it’s totally fine, it’s not my favorite medium either. But there are different ways of expressing your opinions, isn’t there? What will you gain by bashing a whole category of animators, what do you gain by taking away their title? Think about your fellow hard working artists.
I personally don’t care much for Sailor Moon, it’s not my cup of tea, but I respect animation and all the different ways we can perform it today. To animate is not only pen, paper and a camera anymore - it’s so much more. Think about the endless possibilities we have! Why limit ourselves to what always worked and be afraid of failing?
This reminds me when I was forced into a discussion weather making mobile games is real game development or not (compared to AAA-games of course). Why make the distinction? People make games. People produce animation. People draw comics. Some will be to your liking, some will not, but respect each other, please!
Anyway. I keep returning to The Four Agreements that my teacher Drifa handed out. I do recommend it! I handle the 2:nd agreement really bad right now, because I know that no one is pointing this towards me personally. But I just had to speak my mind. Not only for my own sake, but for all other animators out there.
Please, be kind! Peace out! <3
