How this journey started and Where it's heading
Hello and welcome, my name is Valentin and first of all, thank you for visiting my website! DQ-Studio is the result of a long road and is not even the complete portfolio, NDAs are real!
I come from an Architecture background with almost 6 years experience post-grad but for the most of my career I have gravitated towards 2D and 3D graphics, having worked on architectural visualisations in various forms since 2010 and have learned and diversified a great deal since then.
About 2 years ago I was suggested to stream my work and do projects live. Turns out I really enjoy doing this and now I stream regularly on Twitch and am working on my own story-line for a game! The amount of support I found has been nothing short of unhoped-for.
This new chapter in my life has almost entirely shifted me towards the unreal, working on environments and concept art for fun and personal projects, using Blender, 3DS Max, Unreal Engine, Substance plus a whole tool-belt of other packages, and hoping to dedicate myself to this career full-time, independent or as part of a studio.
If you enjoyed my work and would like to get in contact with me, you can do so using the details below, looking forward to hearing from you, even if just to say hello!
Special thanks to Wlad, Jake and Liam for their guidance, support and kind words, and to AMD for their immense support in making this a possibility!
