Brendon Kibler
Associate Environment Artist on Diablo IV
Irvine, CA, United States

I found my passion for digital art in my freshman year of high school, and have since been teaching myself the ins and outs of 3d modeling, environment design, animation, and more.

I have experience working in a variety of game engines and other 3D applications, as well as numerous workflows adapted for indie teams, personal projects, and AAA studios.

I have several years of experience in both Indie and AAA studios and am committed to staying current with new technology and trends in the industry. I am an adaptive worker and can easily adjust my workflow to fall in line with the requirements of new projects and teams.
