Hi, and welcome to my website. My name is Ralf Straube and I create 3D graphics.
I’m working in the video games industry since 2006, mostly making character and environment models, textures and sculpts. I’m also capable of concepting, rigging and animation.
I have teaching and mentoring experience, and I have given texturing, modeling and Photoshop classes at the Games Academy in Berlin and Frankfurt, and School 4 Games in Berlin.

If you’d like to know more, please scroll down for my CV, take a look at my portfolio, and please don’t hesitate to contact me.
