My name is Øyvind Lien. I’m a Norwegian Illustrator & Artist with 8 years of experience working in video games and visualization. In 2009 I got my Bachelor of Computer Graphics from Luleå University of Technology.

Since then I have been working both freelance and in-house as a 2D/3D generalist on PC and mobile games, created Cover Art, designs for magazines and Concept Art & Illustrations for games. Working as a generalist for many years has also granted me strong overall knowledge of workflow, technology and the creative process.

My main tool is Photoshop, combined with advance knowledge of 3D-Coat, Maya, Keyshot, Premiere, Lightroom and Marmoset Toolbag. I also know the basics of Illustrator, After Effects, Dimension and Unity.

As an artist I like to explore styles, experiment and push the quality of my work. I enjoy trying different mediums, developing my understanding of art and design foundations, while exploring and learning new tools and techniques.

I have a professional attitude and ethics, focusing on solving the design tasks with functionality and simplicity. Respecting the deadline, and always following the clients needs and wishes.
