Edit Ballai is a concept artist/environment artist with more than 7 years of experience in game design, animation, and TV commercials. She is currently working as a 3D artist focusing on concept art, photo-realistic digital environments, and texture painting. She has contributed to many exciting projects, TV ads, and independent ad campaigns. When she is not working on client projects, she likes to work on her own personal projects.

Her clients include Laundry Studio, Adobe, SpilGames, Zoho Animation Studio, Spil Games, Not To Scale Animation Studio, and many more. 

Since her early childhood, Edit loved to create imaginary worlds, and as a kid, she spent most of her time writing novels and illustrating them. She always loved imagining stories, even fictive or based on truth, and adding her own details to the story. She is a natural-born storyteller who loves to add details to the scene, to increase the richness of storytelling elements.

Like most of the artists, she's interested in many different areas of creation: besides concept art and world-building and storytelling, Edit also enjoys character development, world building for games as writer for games: to write and iterate on compelling,character-building dialogue contribute to the further development of existing characters and storylines. She likes to write descriptions, notes in separate document of the world, factions, characters, and history as resource and doing research gathering and documentation.

Between works, she even tries to find some time to continue working on her pet project: a dystopian sci-fi book.
