Hello guys! I just joined the site and this is a short introduction about me.
My name is Einar Martinsen, I live in Norway and I'm working at a studio as a VFX/Concept artist/ Matte painter. I'm going to post some of my work here now, and some more later on.
I also have a youtube channel with quick paintings and such. Feel free to check it out =)
Hey folks! This weekend I'll be exhibiting some work at Spectrum Art Live in Kansas City. I have a new sketchbook that will be debuted at the show!
I'm excited to see everyone there. If you're in the area, be sure to stop by and say hello! :)
Here is some sketching done over the weekend. I tend to fall back on textures and references a lot to achieve the realism I like, but this time I painted purely from my imagination. It's nice sometimes not to be too accurate and detailed. Thanks for looking and I hope everyone enjoys!
I'm trying to develop a nice technique to cover a creature with scales without having to individually describe each one, and'm pretty pleased with how it's progressing so far. It's workable for creating the creature out of whole-clothe (as I've done here) or as an add-on for something pre-existing.
This dino is purely fictitious, incidentally. :P
Seekurs can live up to approx 80 years in age. They live primarily off scavanged carcasses. Highly intelligent they never sleep in the same place twice. They are recognized by their odor, like a metallic sulpher aroma. Stings the nostrils.
Here is the first spread in my sketchbook along with an incredibly nice blurb from Guillermo!
You can pre-order the book here(pre-orders also come with a signed print until May 15th) :)
