Theme:Standing Still

They’re not sleeping, they’re waiting. I wanted to make it as detailed as my previous troll picture, but hell.. try and draw some details in a bus along the bumpy road to Ylikiiminki :D

CC-BY-SA-3.0 I'd love to see someone make a proper version of this 8)

I was watching the extended edition appendices of LOTR and got greatly inspired (once again..) by the amazing concept art by John Howe and Alan Lee. In particular these isometric and bird’s view sketches of Osgiliath and Riddermark. Obviously I cannot reach the same level of detail and harmony but still I wanted to try and start from the top corner, work my way down to the bottom and see what comes out from my brains. I used a little reference on the mountains, to see how they are formed. But still just a ‘stream of consciousness'(?) or smthng.. :P

Now post-mortem as I look these houses I notice that there are some factual errors in the architecture. All of them are quite medieval and that’s good. The church is clearly Norwegian, as are some of the peasant huts, while the lord’s manor is definitely English. And there are few log barns which I’m not sure if those have been seen outside Finland… oh well.. too lazy to correct anything.. anyways, this could be located anywhere around southern Scandinavia and western Europe.

Post-Apocalyptic Oulu

I’m sorry I haven’t updated for a while, frankly I haven’t been drawing either.  Since I woke up today, I’ve been working some pre-assigments for the company I’m applying for as a graphical designer. For yesterday I have a lame excuse of getting hooked in Perfect World International MMO, and The Case of Charles Dexter Ward by H. P. Lovecraft. :D

Anyways I’ll put this recently painted Post-apocalyptic pic here too.

This morning I killed time in Café Saara in Kirkkokatu, Oulu. It’s right next to the city hall, and I recommend it for everyone. I’ve got to say they make the most excellent coffee and Reindeer Croissant was delicious too. This view wasn’t too good but all the seats with clear vision to city hall where taken. Shame, I’d have liked to draw it but some another time then.

No vanishing points whatsoever, I tried to draw looking at the paper as little as possible, so perspective is quite off.

I decided to draw how it would look like if there was a huge office building in the middle of the Oulu centrum.  Like Technopolis. Then I thought it would be cool to have the existing shopping mall in downstairs. Stockmann, Vima, Akateeminen Kirjakauppa and whatever there are.. And this cool restaurant with a balcony.  View from Saaristonkatu to west. Reference:

I ended up chatting so much in msn that I almost forgot to draw anything. That’s why this turned out this simple and unimaginative. I’ll probably paint this scenery in photoshop tomorrow.
