Sandra Duchiewicz

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

For the past 10 years, I've been working on a variety of projects, including AAA video games, indie games, animated shorts, theatre 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.

My experience in teaching Production Concept Art extends Mentoring Sessions. I had a pleasure to give lectures and do workshops at main Art Conferences and Digital Art Festivals in Europe:
-Promised Land Art Festival 2016, CD Project Red, Łódź, Poland
-Industry Workshops 2017, London, UK
-Animex 2018, Teesside University, Middlesborough, UK

-Digital Dragons 27-28 May 2019 - Cracov, Poland
-LightBox Expo 6-8 September 2019 - Pasadena, CA, US

I also sometimes appear at Universities to give lectures to Game Art Students;

I also wrote a little article about job hunting for concept artists. I recommend you to read it before you schedule the mentoring session! https://tinyurl.com/job-hunting-for-concept-artist
I also encourage you to read my answers to common questions from Game Art Students.https://tinyurl.com/game-art-student-faq
AND also to answer my Questionnaire, that I prepared for students! https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/55R6FT3


For those of you that prefer a more traditional way of teaching methods - in a classroom:
I'm pleased to announce that I will be teaching Evening Concept Art Class at Escape Studios this February! I'm super excited because I'm pretty proud of the content of that course. It is a highly practical class that dives into production pipelines, design methods and work ethic in the entertainment industry. I've packed in this course all information I wished I knew when I was starting out :) More info at https://tinyurl.com/concept-art-escape
