Artist, PlaygroundSquad 2020

Hello there!

My name is Anton Hernek, I am 25 years old and I'm an aspiring 3D Character/Creature artist studying here at Playgroundsquad!

Growing up in a household filled with leftover art supplies from my mother's design studio, it was only natural that I at a young age loved to draw. So after attending a two-year design course at Leksands folkhögskola where I spent the better part of two years practicing my skills in 2d, I figured I'd take the plunge and jump into 3D! So with no previous experience, I applied to PSQ! 

My main goal is to be a Creature artist, I guess you could say I've always been fascinated with big maws and jagged teeth. It also connects back to my hobby of tabletop games, I often walk around daydreaming about scenarios where my players fight some terrible creature I've come up with. The thought of bringing them to life in 3D for others to experience is by far my biggest source of inspiration.

Although I'm still fairly new to 3D art I'm excited to keep working on honing my skills as an artist. During my time here at PSQ I've learned a lot about working in Autodesk Maya and I've recently started learning how to sculpt in Zbrush.

In my spare time, as I previously alluded to I love playing tabletop roleplaying games such as Dungeons and Dragons with my friends, we've been playing for almost thirteen years now and I can honestly say it's my biggest hobby. That being said I of course spend quite a bit of time playing video games. Some of my favorites include Guildwars 2, the Devil May Cry and Dragon Age series as well as some older titles like the Shadowrun games!
