Mathias Osland is a professional freelance concept artist and illustrator from Norway. He immediately started working after graduating from secondary school where he picked up work from Volta, Wardenlight Studio, Big Child creatives, and more. Later he pursued an inhouse job and landed a spot in Atomhawk Design in Newcastle, England where he designed characters and creatures for video games. Now he's back in the fjords of Norway, working as a freelancer in a small wooden house.


Character Design for Film and Games


Mathias has provided excellent constructive feedback with each lesson and I feel like I’ve already improved as an artist because of it.


I learnt a ton about everything! Mathias was really good at explaining design fundamentals, and even though I already have been taught them, I feel like I understand them much better now. His analyses of big, medium, and small, detail placement, and colour theory, were super useful…. The feedback was super good and Mathias was very honest whilst being very constructive and fun with it.


Mathias is a great artist & instructor. Would love to take more classes by him in the future.
