Sunday sketching

   Hi everybody. I decided to not change tradition and go out sketch this sunday. It is so warm outside that i just stayed for some time and did few doodles outside. Actually i was surprised how little it takes to just rise your head up and see wonderful architecture details just around the corner. Sometimes you just don't need to travel somewhere, all you need is here. As always, comments and suggestions are welcome. Have a nice sunday and i will come back soon with new drawings.

Ancient Aliens series ( History channel )

  Astonishing series from History channel about ancient cultures and how well developed technology was at that time. It rises some serious questions and shapes your understanding about history in a completely different way. So far here is first part i watched. Amazing.

Graphite sunday

Hi everyone, 

I decided to visit one of the best museums in Copenhagen today. For sure, I took my sketchbook with me. I found some sweet spots and nice objects to draw. It was so long ago I drew a gypsum sculptures, I can't even remember. I had so much fun dropping shapes and lines on paper. Here you can see a few photos of my sketchbook pages:

First week in GhostVFX

Hi everybody,

first week passed in speed of light. It was pretty busy cause there are a lot of stuff to do. You know, figuring out where to live, find this, find that and ect. But the main thing is the started in GhostVFX. I can say it in short way: cozy and challenging environment, super talented and kind people, a place where you have to be at your best as an artist, in overall, Im am very happy to be here. It cannot get better than this at the moment.

Also today i bought a bicycle for myself. This is the thing you must have here. I realized this in first days. The best way to move around and explore Copenhagen.

70 million

It's one of the best videos i recently saw. Creative, simple, funny ! That's as good as it can get. Take a look:

This is a bit older project I found in my archive. In late 2011 together with RGB agency we did TV spot for big shopping sale event in AKROPOLIS shopping mall.  I was responsible for illustrations and preparation them for compositors. I think we did pretty well. Take a look and comment.

PencilSurfer is joining GhostVFX

   So this friday is a news day my friends! I got a unique opportunity to be among most talented people, learn a lot and try my best to show what I am capable of as an artist and person. GhostVFX invited me to join they're team. So from next monday I am officially a Ghost :) My role will be to produce high-end concept art, matte painting and character designs. GhostVFX is focusing in features films and commercials for biggest clients in Hollywood and all around the globe. This is gonna be one of the biggest challenges to me so far. But I trust my right hand and hope for the best. Time to go there and see what's gonna happen.

PencilSurfer goes Vilnius Art Academy

   Hi everybody. About a month ago I got a call from Juozas Brundza ( head of Design department ) and he asked me to give few lectures for students about digital painting and sketching. In fact, I was more than happy to share my experience. People say, that you have also give, instead only taking. And all this has to happen besides your all commercial projects you do in a daily basis. So I did spend five days in Vilnius Art Academy. It was challenging, interesting, inspiring. I got so much to learn myself. I want to say huge thanks for all these young people for they're passion, interest and questions I received.  Even though I am about to move to Denmark, I hope this is not the last time we had such a nice time together.
Good luck for everybody, keep rocking your tablets and pencils !

Best wishes from Vaidas Bagonas.

 Juozas Brundza tried his best. That's why we have 10 Wacom Bamboo tablets !

I had my workstation also. 

 Books, DVD's and other stuff.

We had unique opportunity to try out Wacom Cintiq 21UX. Thank's to Juozas Brundza again !
