Our Character Design Portfolio

Our 2D character creation pipeline

Our 2D character design studio works closely with every client to make sure that the design process is as clear and efficient as possible. Frequent communication keeps both sides on the same page and allows us to meet your every need and expectation.


At the start of our cooperation, we learn your requirements toward the project and perform our own internal analysis of what it will take from our side and how we can allocate resources and time.

References and planning

After making sure we are fully equipped to handle your project, we collect any relevant references and additional information about the characters for you and create a document outlining the scope of work and how it will take place.

Preliminary work

When the workflow has been approved by both sides, our team can provide sketches, and concept art for your characters to gauge whether the style and art direction meet your expectations. If anything is not a close match, we can quickly adjust.

Art production

Our artists get to work creating fully-fledged character designs, using approaches like 2D digital painting, making drawings, and others.


We deliver the character assets in any format you choose. Furthermore, we can provide additional services like animation, implementation in software, and skinning.


Our studio always puts the client first and gives them as much control and input into the design process that they need. On our side, specialists have all the knowledge and resources they need, as well as dozens of projects’ worth of experience to craft stunning 2D character design for games and other assets, and plenty of 3D content as well.


Countless styles and formats supported

Thanks to our vast experience, we are ready to work in almost any visual style or even help you choose the style that best suits your current needs.


Deliver quality content

Each of our artists understand the responsibility that comes with creating assets that will be used for commercial purposes, so they always go the extra mile to deliver high-quality products.


Added perks

Our team is more than just an assortment of designers. We have many more specialists on hand that can help you with other art processes, such as animation, renders, and VFX.

Our Technology Expertise in Character Design Creation

Because our artists are equipped with the finest software (licensed design and modeling applications) and hardware (powerful computers and graphical tablets), our design process is optimized and focused on achieving results in tight timeframes without any sacrifice in quality.

Where do I hire a character artist?

There are many options for hiring artists, but not all of them are a good fit for a business. For example, hiring from a local talent market can take weeks and onboarding even longer. Freelancers are also a bit of a risky option, as there are no assurances that their work will be done on time and at the level of quality you expect.

With that in mind, finding a good specialist is easy as can be if you partner with 3D-Ace. We have a large team of capable artists, including those with years of experience creating beautiful characters for all manner of games and media.

3D-Ace is a reliable outsourcing provider that will give you an awesome combination of value and speed. We are able to provide accessible and competitive rates, which reduce project costs below what they would traditionally be if you hired locally. Additionally, we have a team of specialists ready to go, so work on the process can kick off in a matter of days. We tend to be very flexible in our cooperation, so the team you choose for your project can be expanded or reduced depending on your needs.

3D-Ace created high-quality 3D models of characters and weapon units for our game. The team worked in a perfect harmony, and every member of it from artists to managers is incredible. They work fast and professionally. 3D-Ace is the best choice for outsourcing needs.

We did an advertising 3D video animation of medicines for a pharmaceutical company with 3D-Ace. I’ve known them for years as a company with good pricing and speed, broad skillset and sufficient size to take on larger projects if needed.
