– A Masterclass in Concept Art and Illustration
I would like to introduce Piotr Jabłoński, a highly acclaimed concept artist, digital artist, and illustrator originally from Poland, as one of my favorite artists in this niche. He is also known by his pseudonym Nicponim, and is known for his excellent use of color and line. His exceptional abilities have earned him worldwide recognition in the gaming industry. Dark and expressionistic, Jablonski's art style blends supernatural elements with points of light. Artists like Zdzislaw Beksiski, Frank Frazetta, Simon Bisley, Polish and Russian painting, street art, graffiti, posters, comics, architecture, and photography are some of his influences.
Graffiti and street art started Jabłoński's passion for visual arts. In spite of this, he became fascinated with digital art after discovering it and decided to pursue it as a career after discovering it. It is through his works that he showcases his incredible talent and creative abilities. Digital software such as Photoshop, Alchemy, and Krita, as well as a graphic tablet, are used to create these works, as well as software like digital paint.
As a reader of Jabłoński's Destiny Grimoire Anthology books, I was given the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of his work as an illustrator and designer through his work on the books. The works show his exceptional talent and versatility in a variety of creative fields. His eerie and beautiful art style is infused with supernatural elements. His art reflects his passion for art and deep interest in the world. While he mainly works digitally, he values traditional techniques as well and plans to do more of them.
The scope of Jabłoński's contribution to the gaming industry extends beyond his concept art and illustrations for games such as Dishonored 2 for Arkane Studios. His work has garnered international recognition in the gaming industry, with notable clients such as Wizards of the Coast and Arkane Studios. Jablonski also created illustrations for the Grimoire book series of the popular video game series "Destiny" by Bungie. In these books, you will find additional background information and stories that will enhance the world as well as the characters of the game. There is no doubt that Jablonski's illustrations perfectly capture the futuristic and dark atmosphere of the Destiny world, adding depth to the game's complex plot line and adding even more depth to the illustrations.
During his career as a self-taught freelance artist, Jabłoński has continued to inspire, create, and push the boundaries of digital art, creating new standards for the industry as well as setting new standards for artists in general. The artist is very aware of the value of traditional techniques, and he intends to utilize them more in the future. In sum, Piotr Jabłoński is a brilliant artist whose passion and dedication to his work shine through in each of his works, leaving a lasting impression on both the art world and gaming industry.
