Hi, I'm Jens. I'm new around the whole Mastodon thing and happy to be here and learn what it's all about.
I love games and especially game art, and am lucky enough to be able to work with it. I'm expecting to meet lots of people with cool skills and interests around here, so see you around =] 👁️

I haven't painted miniatures in year, but I recently got a starter kit and I must feel about as excited to get started as I did when i got my first starter kit at my eleventh birthday!

Today I'm learning that contrary to what I've always believed I'm not bad at finishing projects.
I'm just very good at putting them away in a folder and forgetting about them once I am finished.

I'm a bit torn these days between learning more #3D (epecially materials), teaching anatomy, teaching young kids, going back to the basics of drawing, and of course the everlasting struggle of painting. It's swamping me a little since I can't take on all of them at the same time, yet feel like they each deserve 100% of my attention.

Advice? How do you go about managing art ambitions that take too much time to all get their share equally?

For the last month I've been working hard on a toolkit for visual prototyping in Unity, which is why I've been so quiet. I still have to round it off with some nice presentation, but for now it looks a lot like this:

I'm trying to beat my drawing anxieties and get back to drawing just for fun - and discovered that my drawings look much more fun when I have fun drawing. Go figure.
She's a troll and a merchant, traveling dangerous routes. I imagined she would have an ox or similar to help her transport stuff and if something dangerous happens on the road she would pick it up and run =]. But that'll have to be another drawing.

Stream results: Another fun armour et. I realise I have a lot of them by now, I'm starting to want to find some use for them.

I've decided to stream again,

Commission Me here:

Wife and I are attempting a 1-20 D&D run. Here's her character, Margren. Believe it or not, she's actually a warlock, and her patron likes to spy on her and talk in her ear. Unhelpfully of course.

I will be streaming some drawing and fantasy armour design on twitch at

Been a while folks. Here's a map I worked up for a D&D campaign with the wife. Our goal is to go all the way from 1 to 20 this time. I've worked up so many extra resources for this campaign that session prep takes a few minutes now.

Sit back and take a birds eye journey around the world, from burning lava fields in Iceland, to converging rivers in Brazil, salt lake beds in Australia, and fog buried in snow-capped mountains of Vancouver. Sink in: 

I'm watching Miraculous because it's cute and a good way to practice my French and I realised I have a few drawings from magical march I wanted to finish =]

I'm back from a short vacation and I want to share some drawings!

I have all of these sketches for boardgame miniature I did a couple of years ago that I love but somehow also never really posed anywhere ( usual I guess).

Mermaids are half humanoid and half fish, so they are more than just head, body, and tail.

Draw more of the perfect size teardrops but attach a sketch of the spine and ribcage (looks like a cube on a stick).

Draw fins! Add arms! You'll know what to do. #MastoArt #ArtTips #mermaids #MerMay #CreativeToots
