Sandra Duchiewicz

Hi! I'm Sandra - Polish concept artist, illustrator and indie game developer :)

For the past 11 years, I've been working on a variety of projects, including AAA video games, indie games, animated shorts, theater shows, comics and paper RPGs. During my 6 years of working at the Creative Assembly, I had a pleasure to lead Concept Art Department on an award-winning Total War: Warhammer trilogy.

The majority of my work is focused on character and creature concept art for video games. I also have experience with costume design for theater, marketing art, concept art for TV, art direction and comic book art.

I was featured in "The Best Polish Illustrators: Concept Art" artbook by {slow} Publishing, and also had a pleasure to paint a cover art for ImagineFX issue 133.
