The Old kingdom / Original design
Designing interesting and new designs can be challenging. Especially when it comes to making characters and creatures look believable and relatable. The army you see here is my own design and is inspired by a wide range of different looks to make it look disturbing and alien. Why would I design something so abstract and strange as an alien? When it comes to designing a alien, everything is possible and you can be very creative. In this picture I wanted to try to decorate armor like it came out of an unknown and alien culture. I wanted to use shapes that look very organic but still very technical, like it  was a simplified shell for something similar underneath. Theres a variation in armor, colors and detail, to show that even in an unknown and alien society there will be individuals, hierarchy and race. I wanted to make this alien army look psychologically disturbing. By placing more than one set of eyes I can make a very intimidating and frustrating look. In nature, some insects can have fantastic shapes decorated on their wings that look like eyes, so they can scare of a predators. I like to mix it up so its not just neat, ambient lights and smooth surfaces, but something that looks demonic or perhaps religious? This adds character, and designing something is all about that.

Back street, Metro 2030
This is the background used for Metro 2030, a short animation film made by me and a friend at Møre folkehøgskule, (animation school in Norway). This is originally a traditional drawing, repainted in photoshop with different textures and lights. I wanted to create a atmospheric futuristic street corner, Iv´e been very inspired by Bladerunner. 
Estimated time 2-3 days. Photoshop CS5
