He’s also a recurring guest teacher in our vastly popular online course Quality Assurance in Games.

Dopefish is coming here during the Alumni Days to do an informal Q&A-session about Riddick, Starbreeze and life as a game tester. Also, he’s promised to show some unreleased behind the scenes footage from the production of Riddick. 🙂

Peter Stråhle Technical Artist


GAME alumni of the year Peter Stråhle returns for another session on art fundamentals and to hold a short workshop – sharing his experience of common modelling mistakes and demonstrating a more efficient work flow in 3D Studio Max. He’ll also spend some time talking about his time at GRIN.

As you can see in Peters blog, anyone interested in game specific art can get some great stuff from this guy, but the art fundamentals are an especially helpful tool for your team based productions. These are true tricks of the trade. 🙂

Public Lecture: Art Fundamentals
Time: Wednesday, December 16, 09:00 – 12:00
Location: HGO, E22
