My name’s Jens Helgeson, and this is my project blog.
I’m a third year student of computer graphics at gsCEPT, in Skellefteå, Sweden. gsCEPT is a part of Luleå Tekniska Universitet.
My idea is inspired by a desire to do more hard surface modelling, and a strong naval interest. I will add a CG version of the Swedish armoured cruiser HMS Fylgia onto some tracked footage that I collected outside the Grand Hotel in Stockholm. I’ve set the year for this hypothetical situation to 1910, when HMS Fylgia was fairly new and still had her original appearance. I plan to take steps to make the cityscape conform to this timeframe as much as possible, but much of that work is already made simply by my choice of location. In addition to this I will add a light snowfall, and make the ship fire a salutation shot with its artillery.
