WELCOME TO THE PORTFOLIO OF FINNISH 2D-, 3D-, VFX-, AND GAMEPROFESSIONAL WHO IS CURRENTLY WORKING AS A LEAD GAME ARTIST AT COLOSSAL ORDER GAME DEVELOPMENT STUDIO

CITIES SKYLINES

Colossal Order

I started working at Colossal Order in the development of this hugely successfull simulation title about six months before it was released and I still continue to work as a lead game artist on the upcoming expansions for the game. Game has sold over 3.5 million copies to the date and received overwhelmingly positive feedback from around the world. I´m spending my days modeling, uv-mapping and texturing the assets in Modo/Mudbox/Photoshop and using Unity to setup assets for the game. Creating effects, propping and lighting the assets is also part of my job among many other tasks. As a lead game artist I also have responsibility to manage the asset pipeline and generate ideas for new assets as a part of highly talented team.

ANSELMI - NUORI IHMISSUSI

Bottomland Productions

I spent four months creating visual effects for Finnish independent movie Anselmi - Nuori ihmissusi. Movie premiered in january 2014 in several theaters across the country.

My job included around 50 shots, most of them in a scene where one of the main characters is trapped in a burning house. All fire elements were created in postproduction. I also created shot with human hand morphing into a werewolf paw, bullet trough a photoframe and two shots of traditional, but little over the top wolfpit with mattepainter Teemu Andreas.

IRON SKY

Energia Productions

I spent two years at Energia Productions and during that time our team created the visual effects for the movie Iron Sky. Pre-production started around the time I joined the group and post lasted until about two months after I left. At first production was all modeling, but slowly I turned my head towards fluid- and dynamic simulations. During my two years in the studio, team also tackled many smaller projects one being Brian Yuzna's stereoscopic horror b-movie called Amphibious 3d.

PROJECT GRAND SHADOWS

Personal Project

Project Grand Shadows is a personal project I am currently working on my freetime with my two good friends.

Project Grand Shadows is a digital photography comic book project about a homeless man, outsider in our society, who gets recruited to an experiment that goes wrong.

As much as the project is about telling the story of the main character, it is about the journey of making the comic. It is an inside look into what it takes to create art that combines photography with visual effects and what it’s like to put together the world around the story using costumes, props and real locations. It is about the challenges you face when it’s time to breathe life into written words, but most importantly, it’s about three close friends creating something great together.

Make sure to check out our comic, photos, blogs and much more from the first link. You can also follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Youtube. If you feel you would like to support our effort with money, please visit our page on Patreon and see what exclusive stuff we have for our supporters.
