Grzegorz Rutkowski is an awesome Polish artist who makes kickass illustrations. According to an interview, he said that the best thing in concept art is this whole creating process. Sometimes one has to start from scratch, building whole ideas step by step. For giving ideas life, nothing beats the traditional pencil and paper. When asked about his penchant for sharp contrasts in his work, Grzegorz said: “I’m still looking for perfect way to show what I want to “tell" to my audience. I choose this sharp-contrast way because I’m feeling comfortable in this stylistic; I’m a fantasy fan, more dark then light. But also, I think it has to do with the general perception; certain people see things in pink colors, others in dark, and it has nothing to do with frame of mind.”
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
