Axel Sauerwald is a freelance concept artist and illustrator, currently living and working in Germany. While being a part of the team at Atomhawk Design in Newcastle he had the chance to contribute to games such as Mortal Kombat 11, Age of Empires 2:DE and various other unannounced projects, mainly creating character and costume designs, illustrations and marketing art.


Axel was great! His feedback was thorough, thoughtful, and encouraging. He was very knowledgeable and his passion for illustration was contagious. I would take another course with him in a heartbeat!


In the feedback he always would paint over and explain the strengths in my work, and were I need to work more. At the QA he use to bring more examples for better understand the subject of the week.
