Tanner Ellison

 

Game Environment Artist

 

My name is Tanner Ellison and I am a professional game artist living in Seattle, Washington with my wife, some cats and a rotating cast of little pond snails for the last eleven years. I have been working in the game industry producing AAA content for three years. Before that, I worked on many indie titles and student projects before acquiring my BFA.

 

I have been obsessively drawing and painting since I was a kid. This eventually led me to game development and building a wide ranging array of skills, which I add to constantly. I have used these skills to create content for Xbox 360, Xbox One, Playstation 3, PC, and even the mobile/casual market. I love working directly inside a game engine, creating dramatic lighting scenes and building and putting together expansive worlds, but I am equally proficient with modeling, baking and texturing anything and everything. I also enjoy doing concept art and level design for projects whenever I can.

 

I have a radio show called Seek and Destroy on KEXP 90.3 FM Seattle where I DJ, host and produce content on Saturday nights at midnight. The show is entirely metal and grindcore music and spawns from my deep love for extreme music. I have been known to play guitar and do vocals in various punk and metal bands but art has always been my primary focus.

 

I am currently seeking full time employment but will always consider freelance on a fun project.
