Hello, my name is Tomas Kral and I was born in 1985 in a small town called Milevsko, in the South-Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic. In my early childhood, I liked drawing and painting, but at the time it was mainly aircraft carriers :) Thinking that I could expand my repertoire and further my talent, my parents sent me to the Folk School of Art.  It was thanks to this that I learnt to also draw other things, especially various characters from computer games and films, which I found mainly in computer game periodicals.




Before I completed my basic education at the Folk School, I realized that the only thing which I was really good at is drawing.  It was then that I humbly accepted my art teacher’s recommendation and entered the Václav Hollar Art School in Prague.

It was thanks to this fact that the art world, in all its glory, was introduced to me, but on the other hand, came the doubts.  I did not know how to apply my interest and my abilities to the job market.





The paradigm shift came the moment when my friend showed me his animation created using 3ds Max. My interest in 3D graphics only grew since that time and it consequently led me to both, my first work created with the help of the program and to how to earn a living with its help.  



Since that time, I have worked on various projects and in various positions. I spent nearly four years working for UPP, as a senior team leader on feature films such as 2012, Red Tails, Season of the Witch, Pandorum, Salt, and others. I am currently working at RUR Postproduction, to whom I have dedicated this image to celebrate our company’s anniversary.
