The Team

We are a collaboration of young, passionate and talented 3D artists, sharing the same goal of perfection in the production of photorealistic 3D assets, presentations and animations. Most of us started learning 3D at a young age, so we already have more than ten years of experience behind our backs. We are efficient, quick, and with a keen eye for detail. Our lead artists are working closely together at our headquarters based in Ruse, Bulgaria. The rest of our artists are spread across the country and the world, working as freelancers and outside consultants. We pride ourselves in always being able to handle the workload thanks to our can-do attitude and willingness to work hard to reach the targets.

  • Tornado Studios consistently delivers the highest quality product and has set itself apart from their competitors by their steadfast and uncompromising attention to detail. They have shown a willingness to work with me in fulfilling key project specs and an openness to make revisions until all expectations are met. We have planned a 3D model together and they were able to see it through from a concept to a fully integrated and fully formed finished product as we discuss the evolution of the model along every phase along the way. They have never disappointed in overcoming technical challenges that present themselves during the life cycle of a project.
