Zdenek Sasek Illustrator & Designer

About

Hi there,
I’m a self-taught computer artist who lives in central Europe. I started my career 11 years ago, working for one of the big computer games companies. After three years I started my own company. So far, I’ve worked on more than 100 games, several indie movies, various animated web projects, book covers, and so on.

Although I most often work on games, I’m always looking for new challenges. My strength is in my versatility. If someone needs a 2D animated cartoon version of his dog, I can do that – but if he needs me to visualise a complex space station from several angles, I can do that too. On the other hand, I’m just as comfortable creating juicy strawberries or a broken chocolate bar with shiny foil. I work in 2D and 3D, and with photos, and I can combine all of these.

-- Jesus Rodriguez

 

-           "Wanted to drop a line and just say what a pleasure it was to work with Zdenek. He created a 2D concept that was well beyond what I could have imagined it would be, and it fits perfectly into the style of my production. Anyone looking for professional work should get it done by Zdenek."

-           "Working with Zdenek has been a pleasure for us. He's an excellent artist who is able to create amazing looking art. He's very experienced in translating user wishes into artwork and almost all art he did for us was perfect with version 1. For our title 'Loko Kiboko' he created all the art and on many occasions when we didn't exactly know what kind of art would fit the game, he was able to design and create something truly wonderful"

-           "The cooperation with Zdenek is very good and without any problem. He is an experienced artist and he always does the work as I want to have it - and it's the most important point for indie game developer! I wish I have a clone machine and make more copies of Zdenek to make more good artists worked for me ;)"

-           "Zdenek produced truly exceptional art for our game. His rates are very affordable and he was willing to work with us to keep things on budget. He also came up with some great original ideas in places where we weren't sure just what we needed. Overall, the game has come out looking far better than I had ever hoped. Thanks Zdenek!"

-- Jeremy Sullivan
Blue Footed Games

 

-           "...I must say I'm very impressed with the quality of the illustrations, and how fast you got them done. I've worked with a number of artists over the years, and the quality of your work and professionalism are right up at the top."

-- Phil Ings
The Late Night Game Company

 

-           "Zdenek is an *amazing* artist who is also surprisingly affordable. Everyone who has seen my game so far has always mentioned how impressed they are with the artwork. But in addition to doing top-notch work, he also understands games, so he produces what is needed, in the right format, without the need to explain every detail. And if you're short on ideas, he is happy to provide those as well, along with concept art. So far, his ideas have been far better than anything I could've come up with. His policy on revisions is extremely flexible, fixing problems with no questions asked. You really can't ask for more; not only is Zdenek great to work with, he produces fantastic results. I hope to continue working with Zdenek in the future, and can't recommend him highly enough!"

-           "Zdenek is a fantastic artist. I had a first experiment with him some time ago, and went so well, that we hired him again to our next project, and surely will to our upcoming works. I sometimes wonder if he has a twin brother locked in a basement, so he can output the art he does in such a speedy time while mantaining high quality. It's a pleasure to work with him."

-- Bruno Cesteiro
Camel Entertainment

 

-           "Zdenek is a real pleasure to work with. He has this rare mix of artistic vision, techinical ability, helpfulness, affordability and speed. We've been able to count on him again and again for concept work, animation, conventional 2d and right through to 3d modelling and rendering. His ability is so strong that these services would normally require a team of several artists to cover. Sadly I can't recommend him... He's just so good I want to keep him as my own little secret!"

 

-- Matt Bennett

-           "Zdenek Sasek is an extremely talented artist and did a first rate job for me. He came up with creative and original artistic conceptualizations from brief descriptions and really turned out some amazing art work. He also always delivered on time at very reasonable rates. It was a real pleasure working with him."
