Hi
     I am Ashok Kumar Dass a freelance and full time concept artist working in the entertainment industry. I  born and raised 1985 in Fakir pur,Keonjhar in odisha ,India. Since my childhood I was fond of drawing and painting. When 18 year old I became a student of S.V.

      Well lets begin where I started to play with digital imaging. It was the year 2007 when I touched digital media ( PC and tablet) first time. I always was interested in  creating new worlds. Since back then I ,m working on my techniques . I always  was a fan of huge impressive landscape ,environment ,cityscape and creature . I learned every thing by myself and I m pretty proud of that fact. It tells me that this kind of art stuff  seem to be the right thing for me.
