Kjartan Tysdal - DemoReel 2011


Kjartan writes:

My personal reel, it's mainly oriented to modeling, but I also do texturing, lighting and compositing.

Everything is made by me, the only exception is the soundtrack. Go to this link if you want to see more of my work.

Music is "Pick me Please" by Scott Verbeek.

Here's a list of the different programs I used:

  • Mech: The design is from Starcraft2 by Blizzard. 3d and composite is made in Blender, 2d was Photoshop, rendered in Cycles, tracked in Syntheyes
  • Robot / Car sequence is made in Blender and Gimp, rendered in Cycles
  • Hydralisk: again the design is from Starcraft2 by Blizzard. 3d and composite work is Blender. Texturing was done in Blender and Photoshop. Rendered in Cycles
  • Hashima is blender+gimp and rendered is Cycles
  • Dragon project is modelled in Silo +Zbrush, rendered in V-Ray and post in Photoshop
  • Shark project is Blender and Gimp

thanks for watching!

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Thanks people!
    TFS - I sent in my application to Mango yesterday :)
    Barri Allen - Thanks man. I do all my modeling in Blender now. I do miss Silo though

  2. Christian - I used to find Blender lacking in modeling as well, but not anymore. I don't use a custom branch but I do use a lot of addons like interactive inset, vertex slide, loop tools, fake knife and some times bevel (You can find all of those on In addition to that I also map tools that use frequently to custom hotkeys.

  3. Fantastisk arbeid! Hvis ikke du er hjertelig velkommen til Mango så vet ikke jeg:p Og hei, har vel knapt vært borti en norsk blender-bruker før! 

  4. I don't know how many reels Blender Foundation is receiving, but I think yours should be highly considered for the Mango Project.
