Johan Henrik Friis!

Wednesday, December 9, 2009


These are WIP's from Johan's personal project days. I haven't really finished anything yet but at least one of these will be done SOON! The first one is Zsa Zsa the lobster girl/boy who uses their feet like hands since she has lobster hands. Then I named the other two Muhulland and McQueen...some characters from a story I'm thinking up.

Fig. Painting, experimenting with colors.

ILL so far

Gouache fairytale illustration assignment. Brothers Grimm "The Golden Bird".

Fixed up a bit on Photoshop. A dream I think

I think this was our first big pen and ink assignment. I still havent finished it!

Relaxing Bear Toy Assignment for Illustration 1

I dont have any toys! So I had to go to Japan town so I could get the toy bear Rilakkuma. Because I like himmmm. This was an Assignment which focused on cool and warm colors and something something like that. Brain fart cant sound look it came from a camera photo so it looks kind of bad quality wise. Oh and Gouache!

Another Old One

This was my first "perspective for animators" assignment from my instructor John Heebink (really awesome guy & helpful instructor) it was to design an interesting car using the isometric grid and create a character who was scaled with the car...he is supposed to be able to fit in it.

I imagined this little guy in his own little "kiddie" world where small people like him would drive around in their old fashioned cars. I was inspired by Mini Coopers and mostly 1970's British Leyland mini's. Again, this was my second semester at AAU, I had no idea how to draw a car and it was the first time I had seriously attempted it, my knowledge on anatomy was pretty stale too so forgive me!! My grade was B+ btw : )

Also, this is just a bad copy of a color practice I found lying around my mom's apartment so its not the original, I have no idea where the original went : <

I lost all my old work when my Hard drive crashed. I found this somewhere? I wish I had the original so I could fix that weird gun!!! I was being lazy in this class as well. I need to be non lazy! But the copy I had of Photoshop kept CRASHING and pissing me off, this was probably the best thing I did in Digital Illustration or whatever that class was called.

Back in the second semester work at AAU. I found them bundled up crimped in a corner of my moms apartment. I was a really bad student back then, I didn't ever want to listen to the rules. Hence the discombobulated people.

Isometric Orthographic Butterhead

This is "Butterhead" I did this quickly like 20mins or something for LA345. We're learning about freaky forms of perspective that make me yawn~

GUYS!~ I'm bad at I'm just gonna do a traditional drawing today.
Btw. I just wanted to post my Mandala from my Color & Design final since I didn't put that up yet.So this is the initial sketch I did!! The day before it was due....*warning* bad idea to do that. Procrastination Baaadd

Final image~ The CIRCLE WAS SO HARD TO CUT!!! Johan tried his best to help me, plus I was late because I also procrastinated again *Bad* But I got an A!!! : 3

I had a great time in that class~ even though I didn't really make any friends and I was mostly alone in the front of the class the whole yr. Most people scared me and said it was gonna be a KILLER class. But I actually had a really great time learning the concepts and how to mix my own colors, it was an ability I was really lacking in. SO HAPPY I LEARNED THAT STUFF! Complimentary colors etc, believe it or not I had no idea how to mix.

One thing I'd say about the class is try your best to enjoy the assignments! You have the ability to choose anything you want to design so I suggest doing something you really like because you'll be spending a good amount of time on it~ I choose little Momotaro and his 3 friends a pheasant, a monkey and a dog! I also listened to a song called "Baby Universe" alot and that made me happy ^_^
