Hello folks!

I'm a 21-year-old student from Poland, enthusiast of computer games, fantasy, science and all kinds of weaponry. I am also guilty of being a notorious talker. Aside from that, once in a blue moon I happen to draw something in my spare time, mostly dragons and other fantasy related stuff. As an artist, I'm a complete greenhorn. Thus, I substitute skill with excessive amounts of time spent on each piece. Still, I hope to improve with time and submit something every now and then. I also like to let people know when I like their works. If you're looking for a chat or an opinion, I'm your guy :)

If you are reading this, I hope you have a wonderful day! :D

Secret Santa - The Spirit of Winter
My Secret Santa work for l-Hyden! A very unique concept of a faceless dragon impersonating a season as a force of nature. Make sure to check her out, she has some wonderful artworks! :)

Może na początek przeproszę za ekstremalne zwlekanie ^^' Miało być na święta, jest na Nowy Rok (co prawda ukończone jeszcze w 2016). Niestety, jako niedoświadczony artysta ciągle niedoszacowuję ilość czasu, której potrzebuję na poszczególne etapy pracy. W połączeniu z faktem, że jestem BARDZO powolny... No cóż, mam nadzieję, że spodoba się na tyle, by wynagrodzić oczekiwanie :D

Bardzo ciekawy design, bardziej skomplikowany niż mi się wydawało na pierwszy rzut oka. Ponieważ już po świętach... Szczęśliwego Nowego Roku! Oby przyniósł mnóstwo okazji do świetnych przeżyć i był pozbawiony jakichkolwiek kłopotów! Hug

Hello, those few people who know me! ^^

I hope you are having a great time during these holidays :) I wish you to seize this opportunity to spare some time for yourselves, your families and friends, as it is really important to catch your breath before the challenges of the upcoming year. Do your best to cherish these moments in peaceful and festive atmosphere! X Mas Smiley Hopefully, you will go through 2017 in good health, free from worries and unburdened of bothersome duties. May your dreams come true, whatever they are :D I hope you'll get to do what brings you pleasure and fulfillment as often as possible and find an abundance of money and love! And finally, best of luck! You can never have enough of it.

Stay truly free, healthy and happy! Peace Sign Emoji 

Najwspanialszych Świąt i pomyślnego Nowego Roku życzy Arcdanis!


Regarding my recent activity (or lack thereof). I've experienced a huge setback due to data corruption issues with my computer (lousy old thing... :lag: ). I guess bad things have to happen every so often. I've started my previous project back from scratch and it is 75% done right now, but I had to postpone finishing it. The reason is a more urgent project for Secret Santa, which I'm currently working on (I have to keep my deadlines). I will most likely be able to find about 20+ hours to dedicate to this piece in this week, so I hope to post it by 30th December (And this time I MEAN IT). If somehow that's not enough, I'l subtract what's nececessary from my sleeping time ;) I already have a New Year resolution - try harder, submit more works.

I hope you will forgive me for being the sluggish procrastinator I am. :/
Changed my mind about the next project on the drawing board. Instead of an avatar, it's going to be a full body digital picture of... <drums&trumpets> ...A dragon! Unexpected, huh? No? Fair enough. :p
I've never drawn one in a sitting position, though. Maybe I'll manage to come up with something more suprising by the end of the year... Who knows?

As for now, let's see if I can make this one even better than the others and, most importantly, finish it faster. :D
Just another colored sketch (A special one, too)
I hestitated to post this one for a long time.
The dragon in the picture has no particular name. It was my first exercise in building my confidence as an artist. Before this sketch, I was afraid to draw anything - as a perfectionist, I didn't want to embarrass myself. My skills at drawing stuff were limited to sketches of weapons and suits of armor, doodled during particularly boring lessons back in the day when I was still in high school. Then I made a resolution - I promised myself that I will at least try to create something that is not cringeworthy to look at. I sat my lazy ass down and made this sketch of a dragon - a very crude one, indeed. Despite it being so far from something that is actually amazing, I was very happy with it at the time. I've managed to prove to myself that I am not a lost cause, that I can improve. After it was finished, I wanted to go a step further and make a colored version, which you see here. It was a little more than a year ago, but I was a complete noob in Photoshop back then. If I were to criticize it now, I could point out so many wrong things about this picture...

Yet, I've made the decision to share it with you. Why? Because maybe through this trip into the past I can show you that you too are able to make serious improvements in a relatively short period of time. Don't make my mistake - don't be afraid :) With every tool you learn, with every pattern you memorize, you will get better and better eventually. It is not only about skill. True talent is necessary to get close to perfection, but if you aim at decency, like me, determination and strong will should be sufficient.

To those who doubt they are capable of creating something that they could call art: Don't let anything hold you back! I started late, but late is better than never! Now go pick up your pencils, paintbrushes, graphic tablets and create something awesome! ;)

Zenvaydir - original sketch
If anyone is interested, this is the original pencil sketch that I've used as a base for "The Sentinel's Solitude" picture. As you can see, I was quite clumsy, which resulted in the paper getting dirty. I would also take the opportunity to commend all of you who do the shading with soft pencils - it does not work very well for me.

Well, I keep posting my pics in reverse chronogical order... I may be too ashamed to start with the truly earliest ones xD Just a few of these left, so bear with me :)

Hey, thanks! That's very kind of you :thanks:
Unfortunately, I'm terribly slow when it comes to artworks, but I'll try to finish my current WIP by the end of the next week.
You have some really neat sketches yourself :)
Have a great day, too!
