Desert city for a fantasy novel
Tasked with illustrating a series of fantastical worlds, this image depicts one of the cities on a planet with a desert climate. The city is situated in the midst of a barren landscape and serves as a hub where merchants and travelers congregate. Surrounding the city is a wall intended to protect it from the harsh winds, while within the city there are water extraction stations. Above the main gate, it is customary to display the severed heads of criminals, underscoring the brutal and savage nature of this world. In the foreground, we see two brothers with their pet and draft animal, pulling a cart as they head towards the city.

Dreamers run in terror from it as the Wounding One kills and mutilates them with its cleaver, inspiring horror and disgust. The only way to escape the Wounding One is to not follow the other dreamers and run in the opposite direction.

Set of 9 Landscapes and Interiors for Metal Music Website (Environment Design)
For the metal music website, dedicated to metal music, I created a series of landscapes that represent the different moods of metal music styles. For example, the red infernal landscape at the bottom represents the death metal style and so on.
I also created icons for the same representation of metal music styles for this website. Different metal music styles are represented by different types of skulls.

Expressive skull icons for the main metal music styles are also included in my portfolio.

The dark charm of the dark worlds
Dark fantasy is a type of fantasy setting in which the idea of a magical world intersects with the horror tradition. I love and I can visually convey the gloomy charm of dark worlds. This is the main area in which I have gained considerable experience.
I can create for you:
- characters: dark elves, powerful berserkers, evil dead, etc.;
- illustrations for articles, literary works, book and magazine covers;
- art for board games;
- game backgrounds and entourage
A lot is possible in the dark fantasy genre, it provides a huge space for the imagination of the game developer, writer, artist. From the classic fantasy worlds of Moorcock and Sapkowski to the whimsical tangle of magic and technology inspired by Stephen King's The Dark Tower.
Let's embody your gloomy fantasies in color together.
