Conjuring Monsters with @dominicqwek

For more of Dominic’s monsters and crazy alien warriors, follow @dominicqwek on Instagram.

Dominic Qwek’s (@dominicqwek) days and nights are filled with monsters — and he wouldn’t have it any other way. “Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been fascinated by monsters and scary-looking aliens,” Dominic says. Born in Singapore, Dominic, who’s 35, now lives with his wife (an artist and occasional creative collaborator) in Southern California, where he’s a character designer for the video game company Blizzard Entertainment. Inspired by the unforgettable creatures that slithered and munched their way through so many classic sci-fi thrillers, especially the Alien and Predator films, Dominic spent countless hours when he was younger filling notebooks with drawings of nightmarish, oddly beautiful beasts. Today, working with advanced software as well as old-school modeling techniques and 3-D printers, he designs eye-popping creatures for popular video games (Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, and others) and for his own amusement — including the ultra-freaky inhabitants of what he calls a “holistic universe of crazy alien warriors.” In the end, Dominic seems at peace delving ever deeper into the darker realms of his own imagination. “Being in a career like this requires a lot of passion,” he says. “I can’t imagine someone who doesn’t love monsters doing this for a living.”

The Council of Elrond. It’s from Lord of the Rings. It’s the meeting where they decide to destroy the One Ring.

I’m pretty sure Sean Bean got the role just for this joke.
