I love your artwork! I swear I wana do matte paintings when I finish school and stuff,... some day.. maybe.. hopefuly ;_; You rock!! This is my favorite painting of yours http://henrik.cgcommunity.com/gallery/cgpainting/mountain_base.jpg it has the least visible on first sight stroke lines and is sci-fi/fantasy like yet realistic. I love it!

Oh my wow! That is incredible. You should sell posters from your site man. I'm serious.

:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

01-03-2003, 05:31 AM
Simple incredible...speechless. I can't tell which of the pictures in your matte paintings section are paintings and which are photos, or if they are all photos. Amazing...I'm at such a loss for words to describe your talent! Your skills are really something to aspire to... I especially like your garlic painting--heh...


01-03-2003, 06:27 AM
Very nice, I love the colours.

01-03-2003, 10:14 AM
Excellent work...!!!
The water seems a bit rushed compared to the rest of it but that would be the only minor crit.
Love it!

01-03-2003, 10:14 AM
You are so talented!!!:beer:

01-03-2003, 10:34 AM
good job :D

01-03-2003, 11:00 AM
Great work and very inspiring. :)

01-03-2003, 11:29 AM
Thank you all!! ^_^

sorry, edit: Also posted in the "Gallery/Finished work".

How I created te hangar? Hmm...I'd say the most crucial thing here was to separate the subtle values, combined with the strong sunlight.
I wanted everything to blend into one image, rather than separate the main objects with thebackground too much, so balancing this was a bit tricky. You might feel that you want to show more detail in the background, but then you lose depth...tricky.

I think the garlic is one of my favourites too.

This is a matte painting/concept painting I did recently. The idea was to create a temple within an interesting fantasy environment, quite like the stunning environments we've recently seen in Lotr. Think the yellow colors helps push this.
What I think is nice here, is the sense of mysticism and secrecy about this place. It's not too obtrusive(?)...rather a nice quiet place for the king and his people to rest...

I used some photographs, and some digital paint to complete this. I feel quite happy with the result. Tell me your thoughts, thank you. ~~


01-03-2003, 11:31 AM
You are back! ARG! This is too much to bear! Your work is too good... and you're 22?? Aaaa! so young!! I feel bad now... must go practice more... bleeeeh.... :beer: Show us more, Oh great one!

01-03-2003, 11:40 AM
This is so good, it nearly sucks!:xtreme:
Especially the 2nd one is just not fair any longer! "Hey! Some of us are still learning!" :scream:
No honestly: absolutely incredibly amazing!

In great awe,

01-03-2003, 11:44 AM
Wow! Henrik is a man and does exist... And he's posting stuff at cgtalk!!! I feel important myself just visiting the boards and watching your works. AMAZING!

Henrik make sure to check you PM or the email you use here @ CGTalk.


01-03-2003, 01:23 PM
You're guestbook is dead, so I'll paste it in here:

This is awsome work you have on your website. You remind me of Dusso (biggest compliment I can give you), but a little rougher, yet more versatile.

01-03-2003, 01:34 PM
Henrik, wonderful inspiring work man! keep it up!


01-03-2003, 01:35 PM
The matte painting is awesome :bounce:

01-03-2003, 02:46 PM
OK, i can have a heart attack now... buuuuuuuuu !

Just wondering ... ;)

BAD BAD Doby! (banging sound of my head on the monitor)

01-03-2003, 03:38 PM
no comment.... :bounce: awesome :!:!! :thumbsup:

01-03-2003, 03:48 PM
The first image with the harbor just looks like a photo with Painter cloning techniques. What am I missing? :shrug:

The second one is amazing.

01-03-2003, 05:25 PM
Kul att se att du lever Henrik :D du har en enorm talang :)

01-03-2003, 08:48 PM
Thanks all!

jeroentje> Guestbook is up and running. I don't know why it was down today...btw, Dusso is great.

fred_bock> In terms of what? I use Adobe Photoshop 7, (still hate the brushes though). I'm on a Vaio laptop now, so hardware is above ok, but not amazing. If you're patient, anything hardware wise is good enough. Hardware is P4 1.6ghz, 512 MB RAM, 30 GB HD and a Wacom Intous A4, yeah the oldie.
I need to get me a desktop one soon...

Maximus> The first picture was done in one evening, maybe 1 or two hours. The mp took maybe 3 days.

kaktus> Henrik rocks! ;)

01-04-2003, 12:18 AM
hey, I went to same school as you in Nacka. :) Very nice work, and on your website aswell. :thumbsup:

01-04-2003, 03:09 AM
Very nice work :D i usually dont go in 2d forums but your stuff is just great...I was wondering how did you paint all those leaves in the forest picture?? Or did you use a photo backround? Im not familiar with 2d concepts so i might be missing something, but it seems extremely difficult to do all those little leaves by hand :)

01-04-2003, 08:37 AM
woot, lovely work! this is amazing... i got so inspired by this is was half way through opening painter before i realised... ...i have no talent.:cry:

01-04-2003, 10:22 AM

01-04-2003, 06:53 PM
Hey again, I like the forest very much so, sets a great mood :D Wow I wish I had a session to like chat (over irc or something) with you, ask questions and stuff. I got a wacom intuos 9x12 but still waiting for stylus (hence can't draw/paint yet on it ;_;) I can't wait too! Oh and hmm CgTalk should have an IRC channel with live interviews of artists! That should be so much fun!

01-04-2003, 07:46 PM
:eek: :eek: :eek: That is amazing, as is your other work. Wow, still in awe.

I'd like to say that this piece is just too good to be true! I luv it! I checked your work out as well, and I was amazed to see how talented you are. You've been added to my list of inspirations. I wanted to post a comment in your guestbook, but I got an "Internal Error 500" or sumthin. Keep up the good work, and I hope to see more from you!

Take care,


10-21-2004, 06:44 AM
love the subtlties of the colors and layers in the sky and buildings in the horizon. It's used really well.

After retiring from the Navy, and seeing many paintings of various ships this is by far the best ever. Great work. :thumbsup:

Any other work from you?
