ME­DIA: Pho­to­shop, Maya Seven years ago Daniel quit his job in a bank. It was one of the best de­ci­sions the Pol­ish il­lus­tra­tor ever made. “I spent 16 hours a day in front of my Wa­com Tablet, learn­ing new tech­niques,” he says. “It cost me my so­cial life, but it paid off when I started get­ting com­mis­sions.”

In­spired by dystopian fu­tures, cy­ber­punks and sci-fi, Daniel’s work tends to­wards the darker side, cre­at­ing moody and of­ten dark il­lus­tra­tions.

1 Bro­ken Worlds

“I did this book cover for a col­lec­tion of short sto­ries writ­ten by dif­fer­ent au­thors. The only common theme was dystopian fu­tures. I in­cluded a dog, sug­gest­ing that even in a dark fu­ture there’s still a place for sim­ple re­la­tion­ships.”

2 Dealer

“This was a per­sonal piece that summed up ev­ery­thing I’ve learned: 3D base ren­der­ing, ZBrush sculpt­ing, photo tex­tur­ing and photo bash­ing and, of course, tons of paint­ing. I love to il­lus­trate strong women and the cy­ber­punk theme was some­thing I in­stantly fell in love with.”

3 After Bat­tle

“This was a speed-paint­ing project for a Face­book group, cre­ated in around 50 min­utes. I wanted to prac­tise speed, com­po­si­tion and colour, as well as sto­ry­telling.”
