Sandra Duchiewicz

Hi! I'm Sandra - Polish concept artist, illustrator and Women in Games Ambassador :)

For the past 12 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.

The meeting I had with Sandra was amazing! We ended up going overtime with all then advice she gave me. Definitely recommend. I plan on having another meeting in the future!

If you are considering giving a mentorship with Sandra a try don't hesitate. She went above and beyond to help me and the insights she gave me were invaluable!

Sandra was not only able to provide me with extremely helpful and immediate career advice, but we were also able to have a very light-hearted, down-to-earth, and fun conversation about the industry, its standards, prospects, and the most important part of it all: talk about creativity and making art.

I cannot recommend her mentoring enough. If you're having doubts about where to go with your work, she will most definitely be able to show you some tips and tricks that will put you on the right track.
