  • I really enjoyed my time with Asim on Immortals Fenyx Rising. Asim was one of our concept artists back then [and it] was easy working with him because he had a good attitude, was very receptive to feedback, and was always looking to improve his art skills. In our concept artists group, he was one of my go-to guys when I had a special request or complicated tasks. I’ve watched Asim’s progression over the last two years, and I have been really impressed by his recent works. Asim is a true professional on every level.

  • Asim worked with me for several years on the entire production of Ubisoft's Immortals Fenyx Rising game, where he created many colorful fantasy environments. His sense of design, his passion for light and color harmonies, as well as his extensive knowledge in 3D, allows him to be an extremely versatile Concept Artist and a very charismatic instructor, as Asim is passionate and an excellent speaker.

  • I can say that Asim is not just an amazing artist but a world builder. The artworks that he produces are original and vibrant, and they drag you in and make you want to explore more. The importance of his work is the spark that will motivate an entire project by bringing the first visual ideas to the teams and align them to realize an epic version of his initial work in a game engine.
