My favorite shots of Dan


This animation is done for a game which is called Batlight. The game reminds me the Mario video game and I definitely going to play Batlight one day. The main character of the game is the white bat which should escape from a dark dungeon.


Automatization is the key to the progress. Nowadays we can make everything works automatically and enjoy every moment of our lives. Just take a sip of coffee and relax.

Never Stop Reading

Are you a booklover? This fellow is definitely book addicted and he is trying to read a book even during skateboarding. I like the whole concept of this shot because it inspires me to read books.


Can you imagine this perfect moment when you walk with your friend/lover along such a picturesque park? This illustration is so bright and positive that makes me smile.

Dream Flight

Have you ever felt a moment when you fly and suddenly fall down during your dream? It’s a strange feeling but I really like it and Dan preciously represents all emotions of this moment.

Working Process

A sketch has its own magic because it’s not finished yet and you can use imagination to finish it by yourself. Just check out Dan’s sketch of house architecture.

He Did It!

That is my favorite shot of his works. Finally, Di Caprio got Oscar and Dan captures this historical moment in this illustration. The difficult way to Oscar was represented perfectly.
