My name is Sammy Khalid and I am a Concept Designer / Illustrator from Dublin, Ireland. I have worked on Film and T.V titles at the highest level, including shows like Black Mirror, His Dark Materials and Films such as Disney's Artemis Fowl. I also work as a sci-fi/ Fantasy illustrator for Paizo Publishing along with other Games companies such as Riot Games on titles such as League of Legends.
My skill-set includes: providing production artwork including character/creature designs, environments, vehicles/props, effects, production illustrations and matte paintings utilizing both 2D and 3D approaches.
I attribute much of my professional successes from advice, skills, and lessons mentors so generously shared with me early on in my career. These valuable relationships continue to this day and have become reciprocal when it comes to solving difficult design problems or looking for critiques and advice. These mentors have been an integral part of my artistic journey, as advice has gone beyond the work itself to dealing with work/life balance, studio cultures, mundane but essential admin issues; marketing, taxes, etc.
I now offer mentorship services to repay those who have helped me and to provide that much-needed support for students looking to break into the entertainment industry as a concept artist, matte painter or illustrator.
