My name is Zsolt Jackli and I've been working as a 3D Artist since 2008. I'm a self-taught Hungarian artist specialized in game environment and asset creation. I worked on such games as Overwatch, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, Perfect Dark XBLA, SBK09, Race Pro, Magic 2 Master MMORPG. I've been also fortunate that a Danish company asked for my Nohab train model to use it in their upcoming shortfilm and also a Hungarian confectionery managed to create its cake mold based on my model. Furthermore I also had an opportunity to work for the Royal Netherlands Airforce as a Graphic Designer / Courseware Developer to help achieve the best visually appealing and easy-to-read materials for learning courses of their currently used aircraft types.

Games always have been great inspiration for me since I played my first game on my Enterprise 128. Even though I graduated in economics and worked as a project manager, the enthusiasm towards games never ceased to exist in my heart. I attended a drawing and digital media school to learn about traditional art and 3D. Thanks to the 3D course I took, I managed to land my first job as a 3D Artist. This is how 3D has become not only my career but my passion.
I'm always working on some personal work in my spare-time to keep up with new techniques, to get familiar with different styles. I also take part in competitions such as the Riot Games Art Contest 2014. I always seek opportunities to push my boundries, sharing my experience with other artists to help each other grow.
