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.

Lo­ca­tion: Turkey Web: vku­­ Email: vku­ ME­DIA: Maya, ZBrush, 3D-Coat, Keyshot, Pho­to­shop, Paint Tool SAI

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.”
