My Bio
Helloween20

Greetings to you all. 14 years I was away from DA. This gallery was forlorn before it even bloom but 2020 is a strange year and I decide to come back here for new beginning.

My name is Dimitar Nikolov and I am an artist from Bulgaria. (Born in 1978.)

Fascinated with the books of J.R.R. Tolkien from early age I decided to become a fantasy artist. I studied Fine arts at Art School and Design in Free University at my hometown.

I have interests in Ancient and Medieval history, weapons and armors evolution during the ages. I search inspiration in the myths and the legends of the ancient days - these of the Celts, Vikings, Slavs, Huns and other barbaric tribes lived and fought in Medieval Europe.

I work fantasy, horror and sci-fi illustrations, concept art and cover arts. Since 2005 I work as a freelancer.

You have that vintage fantasy illustration/hard rock album cover aesthetic perfectly nailed down. Cool stuff.

Thanks for the kind comment! This has always been the aim of my art, I 'm glad that my work is received in such manner.

Awesome work and style, I love it! :clap:

Your art is amazing... the kind of work I'd expect to see on great Magic: The Gathering cards. I think the legendary Frazetta would approve. :)

Thanks for the great comments about my art! Much appreciated!

Maybe some of my illustration will appear on Magic: The Gathering cards. It depends on the Wizards of the Coasts of course. ;)
