Mike Lim
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
In the early years of his youth, Daarken attended the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Most of his days were spent huddled over a sketchbook at a figure drawing workshop or in a cafe, where he was affectionately known as “the guy that likes to draw deltoids.” After three long years of drawing deltoids and video game playing, Daarken graduated Cum Laude with a BFA in traditional illustration. Daarken began his career in 2004 when his incessant video game playing was interrupted by a phone call. The mysterious voice on the other end identified himself as someone from Wizards of the Coast. Daarken immediately blurted out that he would like to work for them. His overzealous nature was countered with the statement “but you haven’t even heard what the project is yet.” And so began the lifestyle of creating monsters and zombies, with the occasional video game playing on the side. Daarken’s true video game playing powers were put to the test when he was hired by Mythic Entertainment in 2007 as a concept artist for Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning. His two loves combined into a gigantic ball of awesomeness, which he happily rolls around all day. He now spends his days creating Warhammer monsters and zombies and, of course, playing more video games.

The Great Owl from Secret of Nimh. Create him like you did with Nicodemus. That would be so badass.

Hey Daarken ... I had left a comment on one of your images, but thought that I would ask here. I write poetry to music, & make YouTube videos with them & images from DA that I feel that I have permission to use. This is just a hobby, there is no money made. If I give you credit, may I have permission to use some of your work. I would also give you a link as well. I was looking at your gallery, & saw so many that I was impressed with. Would love to use some of your artwork, it is very good. Thank You :) (Smile)

Sorry, but unfortunately that image is owned by Games Workshop, therefore I'm not allowed to give permission to others to use it.
