In the span of my career I’ve had the privilege to do work for the following brands:
- Aalborg Akvavit
- Danske Spil
- Gammel Dansk
- Royal Unibrew
- The Skins Factory
3D renders can be used for anything: icons for apps and websites, product visualisation, TV and film production and anything else you can imagine. I can model and sculpt in Maya and ZBrush and deliver a final still image or model – also for 3D print. If you need animation I have a partner in crime to finish the job.
The skins, icons, websites and banners in my portfolio shows a variety of styles and techniques that reveals a broad range of appealing looks I can create – whether it’s for computer software, websites, banners, mobile or tablet apps.
Photo & Print
Photo retouching is one of my major competences. I do retouching, color adjustment, cut outs, recreation of hair and general manipulations. I do stuff for print everyday as well – so any format, any job I can do.
Mad skills and bad skills
I use a range of various software on a daily basis. Some more than others. Some I know better than others.
Some I would like to know better, so I practice. I like using them all, well except Office.
I spend most of the time using one of the apps from Adobe CC. As a final artist I’m mostly familiar with Photoshop and InDesign, but I do use some of the other apps too.
It’s no secret I love making 3D still images. It’s comprehensive and complex stuff though, so I’ve focused on modeling, texturing and rendering still images. Rigging and animation is not something I’m overly familiar with.
Other companies, organizations and developers offers other great software I use regularly. Here’s a short list of some other software I have some knowledge of.
