Environment Modeler at Blizzard Entertainment
Toni Bratincevic is a senior environment modeler at Blizzard Entertainment working with the animation team on the latest Blizzard cinematics. He is a self-taught artist whose passion for 3D art was kindled when he was exposed to 3D generated art pieces and movies such as Terminator 2 and Jurassic Park in the 90s. Never having the opportunity to study art and animation, he first explored 3D art as a hobby while obtaining a degree in IT. Toni began his career almost 15 years ago, working as a 3D generalist for a company in Croatia which produced commercials and documentaries. A couple of years later, he moved to the United States, where his work revolved around pre-rendered game cinematics, first at Blur Studio and then with the Blizzard cinematics team. He found working on cinematics to be the perfect balance; it gave him the opportunity to work in video games while being able to create VFX quality art.
