A villain, a demon lord, digital hell… But we’re not all angry at the world – there’s also a gypsy, goddesses and Boba Fett.

Founded in 2009, Gamester is one of Turkey’s first ever gaming startups. The Istanbul-based studio is home to Volkan, who’s responsible for artwork and asset development, as well as game design.
The graphic design graduate is not only passionate about traditional and digital art, but also enjoys building plastic models and wargaming miniatures.
“I don’t feel like I’ve developed a style of my own,” Volkan says. “Instead, I draw inspiration from various sources as I’m working. Sci-fi and fantasy are really exciting to me.”
1 Exosuit “This is my most recent work. I used my library of 3D-modelled mechanical parts, much like kitbashing in Maya. Then I rendered in it Keyshot, with a simple matte painting as a backplate. I then put everything together in Photoshop. Fun!”
2 Rapture “This was done for Dominance War IV’s concept art challenge. Rapture is the demon lord of death, the herald of the apocalypse. This chap’s more like an event or disaster than a creature.”
3 58th “I’m a huge fan of Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000, and this is a tribute to Death Korps of Krieg, 158th Siege regiment, produced by Forge World. It was painted in Photoshop and I used some World War One photos as reference.”
4 Net “The theme of this painting is ‘digital hell’. It was created for an exhibition, but was never shown.”
