'Store' section coming soon

Just a quick update about a 'Store' section that will be added to my official portfolio soon. It will feature several options that might be of interest to some of you, namely:

1. Prints: I will be offering selected artworks as high quality prints, something to mess up your walls ;) You can already find the first images on my Society6 profile.

2. Tutorials: I will be creating several longer tutorials, filled with useful stuff (I think) and put them out there via popular Gumroad service. In addition to these paid ones (but affordable, I promise), I will be updating my YouTube channel with free, shorter video tutorials, covering various tips and tricks. Gumroad will also contain some freebies like wallpaper-size images and, in the future, free e-books (the first one with cool pen/marker sketches and some tips regarding the use of those).

3. Licensed images: if you are looking for sci-fi artworks for your eBook, presentation, indie game, etc. but you are on a tight budget, this may be an offer for you - I will be offering many of my personal artworks for use in such projects. Currently, I have over 70 high-resolution artworks on the constantly growing list.

So, a bunch of stuff is coming. I'll keep you updated, also make sure to check my AK-ART Facebook account for more updates.

'The deal'

'OK, boys, put the money bag on the scanner and step back. Slowly...' Yep :) It's 'The deal', another personal piece, in my all-time favourite cyberpunk style. Hope you guys dig it.

'Morning stroll'

Before new prefessional project begins, time for some fresh content. Here's the first, cheerful piece :) Nouveau riche girl with her personal bodyguard and pet rabbit on a morning stroll, probably to visit latest boutiques. The bodyguard is customized Sato-3 from Sakura-Otomo Inc., used more as a display of status than anything else. The girl is wearing a quasi-traditional dress, probably nagged to do so by her parents. Electronic AI-driven pet is cute but a bit unpredictable, so an old-school leash is somewhat a necessity. It adds, however, a bit of a classic feel to this idyllic snapshot.

'Crackdown for Xbox One' trailer

Here's another game trailer I worked on recently to get it ready for this year's E3 - 'Crackdown for Xbox One'. I created several matte painting projections of the cityscape, visible in various shots, the main ones for city reveal at 0:10, sniper scope POV at 1:10-1:15 and tower destruction at 2:13-2:14. Enjoy the trailer!

Here's a bit of info (required to be attached by the client):

All new Crackdown for Xbox One!

The long-awaited new installment of a gaming favorite! Microsoft is bringing a whole new meaning to open world gaming and Axis has had the joy of bringing that vision to life in our brand new trailer for Crackdown on Xbox One.
