I am Yulia Sokolova, a Senior 2D/3D Character Artist. I've been working with Disney, SEGA, Adobe, Envato, Digital Sun Games, Beresnev Games and other companies to create concepts and appealing 3D characters for games as well as various designs and illustrations for advertisement, publishing and mobile applications.
At the moment, I'm working at NineZyme Entertainment, developing character concepts, lookdev and creating 3D models for the upcoming puzzle-driven adventure game.
I'm also teaching 3D character creation for games course at Vertex School and 2D vector graphics at Envato.
