First of all I would like to thank everyone who support me- for all your comments, favourites, shares and everything! Deviantart is the place I always supported in the first turn and I got a lot of awesome memories, I met many people and got a lot of nice jobs from here. I am not able to response to every of you in person so please forgive me for it I just want to spend this time on creating the new pictures that I want to make you enjoyed about! so once again THANK YOU GUYS! This support means a lot to me and I hate empty words so you have to believe me that really gives me energy to keep on doing what I do and what I love!
I have to say last couple of months made my life completely different. Definitely the most intensive period ever. I started contributing to projects from Sega, Creative Assembly, BigPoint, Axis and now I turn myself into full inhouse concept artist for Sony Guerrilla Games in Cambridge (UK). I prefered to stay being freelancer only but I felt like I need to go out to people, have some fun meeting new ones and I felt I need a new challenges. Something that gives me more energy to evolve as an Artist, new tools, new techniques and especially team work that I never was part of as Concept designer and illustrator! I am moving next week so now I am closing other projects, other stuff, preparing myself for 7 months of COMPLETE CHANGE. Keep your fingers crossed!
Before I will leave my high online activity I decided to give you once again something in back. I started Concept Art class with my buddy Michal Kus lately, its called "Breakthrough" and I will be doing FREE exclusive Live Demo session on upcoming Monday (27th October at 6pm (GMT+2) to help spread the word about this project!! This Live session will be dedicated to Environment Design for my "Night Life" series so you will have a chance to see me painting live from scretch my Night Life picture and see what and how this class will work when it's launched after campaign is over! Here is the link to the event: Darek Zabrocki Live Demo Painting "Night Life" Environment Concept Art
What is the class Breakthrough about? Together with my good friend Michal Kus and in collaboration with It'sart we decided to run a campaign to gather indispensable means for creating high quality content.
What we want to teach you is the whole range of subjects from both Concept Art and Illustration that are:
-Creating the Mood, Atmosphere
-Pitch works, color scripts for movies and animation
-Advanced tips (photoshop shortcuts, 3d base mesh etc)
We will be releasing weekly content which is: Weekly live classes, Weekly prerecorded tutorials, Homework assignments and more!
You will have a chance also to meet up with us on private Skype sessions, with getting personal critique and tips to help you improve.
If you are passionate about Concept Art and you would like to work as Concept Artist or Illustrator professionaly in the industry and you don't want to spend like $10-15K per year for CA school we are here to help! Feel free to spread the word and participate in the project! For any questions please feel free to send me an email:

*I would like to mention about my Gumroad gig. Your feedback on it was amazing and I feel honoured I could give you some kind of insight of my worklow with some tips and knowledge I always like to spread. I never finished my second part of Creating the Mood Environment Concept Art but I will release it as soon as I am able for free probably. The word "Soon" is the key in here but I have hopes to finally do it after all things get clear and I have some chillout time
All the best,
