My name is Elias Klingén. I'm a 26 year old 3D-artist, retoucher & illustrator living in Stockholm.
My passion in life is digital art, I always try to learn new software and improve my techniques. I also enjoy working with other people, amazing things can happen if you find the right group of human beings.
After studying graphic design for two years I got an intership at the famous design agency SNASK. After that I got my first job in the industry, as a designer/digital artist at Rebels Studios. I worked there for a year, and since january 2015 I've been a fulltime freelancer. My work is defined by strong compositions, attention to detail and photorealism.
