Please have a look at my website and feel free to contact me if you have any questions, thoughts, or ideas (about my work).
What kind of developer am I?
Who am I and what do I do?
What kind of person am I?
To learn a new programming language, you have to implement something with it. And for that purpose what could possibly be better than a turn-based strategy game? (In hindsight, a lot ^^)
So I dealt with hexagonal tile maps and pathfinding algorithms. I began with plain Java and the Slick2D library, eventually switched to LibGDX though. Later I experimented with a 3D variant in Unity and even built my own editor application for creating and saving custom battle fields.
I sure learned a whole bunch, most of all that the scope of the aspired project was way too big for just one person. However, I terminated the project with a running prototype of AI-controlled competitors battling each other in a free-for-all match on the hex grid. You can see them in action in the video below.
Here I want to show selected works I made within the dozen semesters I studied. Aside from written works there have arisen several practical assignments in various classes. Not all of them I find worth to mention... However, I will gladly enumerate all special subjects I have chosen along with some keywords.
This is a series of drawings I began in 2016. Made with pencil and ink pen on some sort of light cartboard, I gave them to friends as birthday presents. The characters are all from the Blizzard universe — more specifically, from the Heroes of the Storm franchise.
The first time I came in touch with wood-burning art was back in 2010 when I was a soldier. I had the honor to make a large crest which then was set up in front of our company building.
Since then I tremendously improved my technique with each artwork. Apart from burning unique motives into the wood, I saw the pieces into custom shapes, sand the edges, and apply colored varnishes/glazes.
In the very heart of Norway lies the land of the giants, Jotunheimen. My best friend and I took on the challenge and conquered rugged rocks, permanent drizzle, a bare minimum of civilization, and freezing cold nights in the tent.
Despite the harsh conditions it was one of the most valuable experiences in our lives!
For the next trip I went to the Austrian alps with another friend of mine. The landscape was amazing yet in places just as craggy as Jotunheimen's. The paths often were crowded with modern highwaymen: cows.
Unfortunately, I had to end my tour already at the end of the third day — due to a knee injury.
