Ben Kruck

As a recent concept artist graduate with a focus on articulate design skills and professional work ethic, I am eager to become an asset to teams specializing in video games and film. I prioritize communication, following specific directions, and completing tasks by given deadlines. I favour characters, creatures, and prop designs overall, but I am also equipped in other aspects of concept art. The desire to project the same amount of love and admiration as I do when producing my work for a project is important to me. I hope to share my love for concept art through my work while inspiring others.

Filled with enthusiasm, dedication, and motivation, I am a concept artist with a burning passion to bring ideas to life through both video games and film. I take pride in my ability to communicate ideas clearly, and work cooperatively in a team setting, embracing challenges with open arms, and constructive positivity. With weapon design, and environment visualization representing my fields of interest, supported by a technical proficiency in Photoshop, Z Brush, Illustrator, Substance Painter, and Maya, I envision making positive contributions to my team and the project at hand. I now want to make the dream of bringing imaginary worlds to life into a reality of working in an industry that has left me with nothing but inspiration.



Yulia Novikova

I am a Canadian illustration and concept artist who specializes in detailed line drawings and humanoid designs. I greatly enjoy the study of history, mythology, and human anatomy, which influenced me to pursue concept art; more specifically, art for games, movies, and books. I’ve had 2 years of experience working with other artists on collaborative pieces, and it’s something I find fun and would love to make a career of. For me, art is both a passion and profession.

I am a concept artist eager to dive into a team and contribute to the design of video games and films. I put great emphasis on communication, understanding, education, hard work and constructive positivity in a working environment. Characters, creatures and props inspire me the most, and I dream of helping a great studio bring intriguing, fun ideas to life.
