Tobias Forsling

My name is Tobias Forsling and I’m a Lead Environment Artist working at Palindrome Interactive in Skövde, Sweden.

I’ve been working as an Environment Artist for a little over 3 years now and I absolutely love it! Bringing a world to life and telling its story is such a fun and challenging task!

Next to my job, I also spend time exploring the world via photography as well as exploring other aspects of game development, such as shader and tool development.
