Captain America shield (3D)

Personal project. After seeing the Avengers I got inspired to model Captain America’s shield. I used Cinema 4D for modeling and rendering and the ice was sculpted in ZBrush 4. The ice rendered for 26 hours, which felt insane, but I liked the look of it and I needed a break anyways, so I just left it rendering… The city was added in post.

Budweiser splash! (3D)

I made this fake beer ad as a personal project. The bottle was modelled in Cinema 4D and the splash was simulated in Realflow. The splash mesh was then imported back into Cinema 4D where I comped everything together and made the final adjustments.

The Budweiser label was scanned and all different colours and materials were separated to alphas in Photoshop. These textures are available for download xxxx. I lit the scene and used Maxwell Render for the final output.

The new Volvo 121 Amazon (3D/CGI)


This project started as a modelling excercise. I used Cinema 4D for all modeling and the final render. For the final studio shot I tried to mimic the feel and spirit from the 1960’s adverts when the car was in production.

Train(ing) some modelling… :)


Work in progress. Modelled in one day and this render was done using Cinema 4D. The final model was later used in a still image for a client of the company I work for, but not in this very state.

Gustavsberg porcelain (3D)

I made this serie of images as a personal project, inspired by all the magazines I searched inspiration from while we built our new bathroom at home. Gustavsberg is Sweden’s last remaining porcelain producer, probably most known for their toilettes, but also for their very popular ornamental ware.

Everything is modelled in Cinema 4D. The tap is rendered using Cinema’s Advanced Render while the other two images are rendered using Maxwell Render.

iPad test (3D/CGI)

Quick modelling and lighting exercise in Cinema 4D. This was kind of made on the fly, so I didn’t use any references for proportions and stuff.

Schampoo splash (3D/CGI)

This is a personal project from 2009, inspired by an image I made for a client back then. I modelled the bottle in Cinema 4D and the water was simulated and meshed in Realflow 4 and then imported into Cinema 4D for final rendering. All labels were scanned and prepared as texture maps in Photoshop. The scene is lit with CG lights and rendered using Maxon’s Advanced Render.

Just a rope (Cinema 4D/ReeperX)

I made this using Cinema 4D with a plugin called ReeperX. I made some tests before figuring out how to make all splines twist the way I wanted them to. When the mesh was finished I used a Spline Wrap deformer to give the rope some wavy shape. I also added some short Hair before I rendered it using Advanced Render 3 and GI.

Programs used: Cinema 4D R12 / Photoshop

Longing for summer! (3D/CGI)

I was just recently working a lot with ice creams in a project at work and this inspired me to continue playing with ice cream at home. I created the base mesh from scratch in an hour or two and I then continued adding more details to it using both Zbrush and in Cinema 4D.

The ice cream cone or waffle was created in Zbrush using some custom alphas that I created on the run and the actual ice cream was sculpted very freely using the clay brush. I added Subsurface Scattering to the ice cream shader to get the milky, translucent feel and everything was then rendered in Multipasses using Maxon Advanced Render. The background was created in Photoshop in post.

Milk cow (3D/CGI)

We got a request at work today to create a ”Dala cow” (instead of the famous swedish ”Dala horse”) for our client Arla. I wanted to try this, so when my kids were a sleep I fired up Cinema 4D and started modelling. Time ran really fast and in just a couple of hours I was pretty much done with it. I created the ”Arla Dala cow” using Cinema 4D, a 2D-logo as reference and polypainting in ZBrush. The piece of wood was also created in ZBrush. The backimage is a scenery from Dalarna that I found on Google. Hope you like!

Images published on ”Ads of The World”

The company I work for just had four of my images published on ”Ads of The World”. These images were used in a campaign for a swedish magazine store. I modelled and textured everything in Cinema 4D and the final magazines were then rendered in Mawell Render. (All credits are printed in the images)

”Knee stabilizer” – product visualisation (3D)

This image was for a pitch for a client who designs a wide range of orthopedic products.

The above sketch is all I had as reference, so I started modelling all basic forms in Cinema 4D. This base mesh was then exported to ZBrush where I added the soft forms and more details (like seams). The final render is done in Cinema 4D.

The final image still lacks some of the details from the sketch, but this was enough to present the general idea of 3D visuals. I am now working on a second product for them.

Sculpted skull (3D/ZBrush)

From left to right you can see my sculpting progress in ZBrush 4 (ZBrush 4R2b today!). I started off by blocking in all the forms using a standard DynaMesh sphere and the basic clay brushes. As references I used my little Anatomytools skull plus some images from one of my anatomy books.

The upper row of teeth were sculpted from the same mesh as the main head while I used a different approach for the bottom jaw and teeth. I created those parts as simple base meshes in Cinema 4D which I refined in Zbrush, jumping back and forth between the apps a couple of times, using GoZ.

Water steps (3D)

Inspired by some image I found when searching the web. This is a new render of my old ”water steps” image. I’ve changed the lighting to a HDR gradient plane and I think it made this image look more vivid when it comes to overall lighting, caustics and the smooth reflections.

Long time no see (3D)

Bowl and Spoon

Finally I got some time off for personal projects again. I’ve just installed Cinema R13 Studio, which just has been released, and it’s filled with new features.

For this image I wanted to try a photographic lighting setup and render it using Cinema 4D’s Advanced Render. I started off by using a photo reference that I liked for inspiration. The bowl and spoon was first modelled and UV’d in Cinema R13. I then created some grunge textures and reflection maps in Photoshop for the table, bowl and spoon.

Back in Cinema again I started to experiment with lighting and the new ’Physical renderer’. It renders really nice, but I wanted this image as a 30×30 cm print, so I chose to use the old Global Illumination instead. It was much faster… probably because I haven’t had time to experiment with all the new settings though.

I rendered everything as Multipasses so that I could put the image together in Photoshop CS5, where I also added some torned edges, for the old look… My first ”draft” was done during a one late night, but I then continued tweaking the image for a couple of nights more. This is what I came up with.

Watch modelling (3D)

CLICK THE IMAGE FOR FULL QUALITY. This was my entry for the ”Watch Challenge” over at c4dcafe.com back in november 2008. I used Cinema 4D for all modelling and Maxwell Render for lighting and final output.

Dajm chocolate bar (3D)

(click the image to see the movie)

I sculpted this Dajm chocolate bar in Zbrush 4. Some parts of the movie was animated and rendered directly in ZBrush while I used Cinema 4D to animate and render the wireframe. I’m just learning my way around in After Effects also, so I took the opportunity and had some fun with some audio also. Nothing serious! 🙂

Dress sculpted in Zbrush 4 (3D)

I created this dress during a late night sculpting practice. I started with a lowres base mesh from Cinema 4D. This mesh was exported to ZBrush 4, where I then sculpted the wrinkles and folds. Final render using Maxwell Render 2.

Rigid Body simulation for construction company

An image I did for a construction company together with Tommie Nordholm (APDF). The stones were simulated as rigid bodies in Realflow and I modelled a very simple proxy of the construction worker and animated him flying through the wall. I brought all pieces into Cinema 4D and rendered it using Maxwell Render. Photos and rendered elements were then composed together in Photoshop.
