Lo­ca­tion: Ger­many Web: do­ Email: ME­DIA : Pho­to­shop, Maya Do­minik is a con­cept artist and il­lus­tra­tor who first be­gan ex­per­i­ment­ing with 3D art while study­ing de­sign at the Nurem­berg In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy. Ini­tially, he was in­ter­ested in mak­ing movies, be­fore dis­cov­er­ing the field of con­cept art.

“I went for a con­cept art in­tern­ship at Goodgame Stu­dios in Ham­burg and learned a lot there,” he ex­plains. “Af­ter that I be­gan free­lanc­ing and fin­ished my stud­ies. Now I’m work­ing as a free­lancer for in­ter­na­tional clients.”

As well as be­ing in­spired by ev­ery­day life, Do­minik’s il­lus­tra­tions are heav­ily in­spired by his­tory, es­pe­cially the Mid­dle Ages. “I love to paint fan­tasy stuff with dy­namic ac­tion and rich colours,” he re­veals. “But I would say one of my big­gest in­spi­ra­tions is na­ture it­self. It cre­ates so many crazy in­ter­est­ing things. I al­ways try to ob­serve these and mix them with fic­tional el­e­ments.”
