Hvile Öhrnell

Sweden,  Skellefteå Luleå University of technology,  Computer graphics,  June 01, 2016
My name is Hvile Öhrnell and I'm currently a student at Luleå University of Technology in Sweden. I'm currently on my second year out of three years total at the Computer graphics program.

When I graduate I want to become a Character artist at a game company.

I tend to specialize in more realistic characters, both hard surface and organic sculptures. I have very strong knowledge about human anatomy. Muscles, bones and proportions. I also have strong knowledge in Zbrush, Maya, Topogun, Xnormal and other programs that are needed to take a character through the pipeline for games. Sculpting, texturing and optimization wise.

My big dream is to be part of a game production. My favorite part of the pipeline is character creations, but to be part of a team and do environment props, texture work and particle effects is also interesting to me.

The first sculpt is rendered in Marmoset. The other two are clay sculptures

Here is a Skatchfab link with my sculpt.

I wasn't able to get the same result as in Marmoset but you can still look at my edgeflow and see how i put it together :)
