Hi! I'm a 2D and 3D artist with additional experience in art outsourcing.

 

My work routine includes the creation of concept art, illustrations and 3D art for film and video game projects as well as the management of the art outsourcing process. I am familiar with tight deadlines and switching between different projects and art styles quickly.

 

Personally, I love storytelling and to explore new tools and techniques and apply them to my workflow. My software expertise includes programs such as Adobe Photoshop, 3DS MAX, ZBrush, Substance Painter and many more.

 

I have a bachelor's degree (B.Sc.) in Gamedesign and am currently working as an Artist at Limbic Entertainment GmbH in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

 

 

Feel free to contact me for further information.

"Simon is one of those rare artists who is not only highly disciplined and motivated, great with composition, style and color, but who also values and enjoys proper and solid research. During his internship he independently worked himself into the project, easily adapted to the game's style and quickly managed to create artworks with an accurate and creative eye for mood and detail."

- Kevin Mentz, Game & Narrative Designer @Daedalic

 

"Simon Klinz, ist ein verdammt talentierter Artist! Während seines Praktikums bei Daedalic hat er meine Erwartungen weit übertroffen, die ich von seinem Portfolio ausgehend hatte. Mit viel Kreativität, Liebe zum Detail, Recherche hat er sich alle gestellten Aufgaben zu Eigen gemacht und zügig und meisterlich abgeliefert.

Ich würde immer wieder sehr gerne mit ihm zusammenarbeiten!"

-Simone Grünewald, Art Director @Daedalic
