Chris Vasquez
Environment Artist @ Iron Galaxy Studios
Chicago, United States of America

My name is Chris Vasquez, and I'm a environment/texture artist currently in Chicago, IL. For over 5 years I've had the pleasure of working on productions such as Mortal Kombat X, Injustice 2, and Player Unknown's BATTLEGROUNDS! I'm currently a 3D artist at Wargaming on world of tanks!

I'm always pushing my artistic ability with my professional, personal projects, and classes/mentorships. I love learning and researching the newest techniques and tools to improve workflows, collaborating with other disciplines to problem solve, and consistently focused on quality to make the best games. Environment art is my jam and I love it!
