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 and VFX. I also have experience with costume design for theater, marketing art, prop design, level and environment design and art direction.

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.

Everything went absolutely fantastic. Sandra was able to see exactly where I was with my work and match where I was coming from appropriately. Very to the point in a good way and incredibly insightful discussion. Things went even smoother providing collage boards of artwork and talking points for sandra to critique beforehand. I feel more confident about approaching my work now and would definitely speak with Sandra again in the future.

Sandra was really friendly and approachable. She gave me valuable insights and helped me with the doubts I had about my art career. I will for sure ask for her help again.
