David Schmeltekopf

I am an experienced and dedicated artist specializing in real-time environments. My work is my hobby and I am constantly pushing myself to improve. I have a deep passion for the game industry that started when I first played StarCraft at a friend’s house 15 years ago. I have work experience using Scrum and Agile methodologies allowing me to quickly integrate into any modern workplace. If you enjoyed my portfolio you can find my contact information here.

I currently publish and manage art on the Unity Asset Store while taking on various contract work. In between work I am developing a local multiplayer game called Tile Battle. You can find more about it here: http://tilebattle.com/
