About

Yevvie

I'm a self-taught freelance artist working from a small city in Poland. I've been doing art professionally since 2014, although - like many others - I've started creating much earlier. Throughout my teen years I have written a handful of short stories and created three distinct homebrew worlds for tabletop gaming, one of which eventually led to creation of my personal IP, Varyel Universe.

As you can probably guess, I'm passionate about the art of worldbuilding. Whether it's manifesting as monotonous hours of research, watching historical documentaries, learning politics, linguistics, medicine, economy and architecture - if it pushes me closer to figuring out the smallest details of my world, it's worth my time and energy.

I've always wanted to be a storyteller, and despite the natural affinity for written words in my native language, I have found that my true satisfaction comes from the visual storytelling. In my art I focus on fantasy realism, where everything has its place and logical in-world explanation for happening. It pushes me to creating artwork so detailed that I can narrow down a reason why the character wears certain materials or colors and how that affects the world around them.

This place is the home of my visual creations, including fanart and things not related to Varyel. If you'd want to dive into the worldbuilding with me, check out the project's site.
