Rookie of the Year – Winner
Lukas Garliauskas

I emerged from an artistic family, so art for me was always close to home and back in my home I had a pc. Which made Video games a big part of me growing up. At some point (while growing up) I got really interested in Video Game Art. Which led me to study what I today enjoy the most. I found that making an environment was one of the biggest challenges I’ve come across, but since I appreciate a good challenge, choosing to specialise in it came quite naturally afterwards.

With VR still in it’s infancy, it’s great to see so many varied applications without being a toy.
