...to my website. My name is Sven Geruschkat, and I work as a Digital Artist. This website is dedicated to artists, art directors and project managers. You can take a look into my portfolio and learn more about me and my work. Most of it is very old and embarrassing. But better than nothing. Soon, I will put new stuff online. - Enjoy!
My name is Sven Geruschkat and I live in Düsseldorf, Germany. I was born in May 1975 and grew up in a very small town called Heiligenhaus (Holyhouse).
Today, I work as a Digital Artist. What is a Digital Artist? Well, he is a designer, a sculptor, a painter, an architect, an illustrator, a storyteller, a developer, and, and, and...
Creating new and visually appealing art to evoke certain feelings is my task. My tools are, first of all, the good old pencil and a piece of paper. And since art has gone digital, I work with the computer using the common programs to model, texture and render 3D content for computer games, visual f/x or illustrations.
Why am I doing this? Well, as a child I saw many Hollywood movies on the silver screen. Watching Indiana Jones searching for the lost ark or Luke Skywalker becoming the last Jedi fascinated me. From there on I knew, I had to do something visual and creative. So I simply began to draw and to interest me for visual f/x and film design.
Very early, I discovered the powerful combination between traditional painting and computer technology. However, back then there was no specific school education about film, visual f/x or 3D animation, so I made a vocational training and became a "Technical-Design Assistant based on Graphic-Design". I went into the computer game business as a 'CG Artist'.
The future finally arrived. The different techniques for creating art, movies, games or merchandise products merged into one.
