Before graduating from the Art Center College of Design, Dominick Domingo interned at Disney Feature Animation, training in numerous roles in the animation process. After graduating, he worked with them as a concept artist and background artist, in both Los Angeles and Paris.
His credits with Disney include Lion King, Pocahontas, The Hunchback Of Notre Dame, Tarzan, and Fantasia 2000. He also maintained a roster of independent clients, including ORION Pictures, Parker Brothers, Milton Bradley, the Pacific Design Center, Comedy Central, Wizards of the Coast and several book publishers.
Domingo helped to found the animation program at Laguna Art Institute, was an instructor at L.A. Academy of Figurative Art and is currently an instructor at Art Center.
In 2001 he attended the New York Film Academy and shifted his attention to directing live action film, and has directed several independent short films. He currently divides his time between illustration, concept art and directing.
Domingo’s lively, wonderfully stylized concept art has a feeling of enthusiasm and energy. The energetic nature of the drawing is sometimes restrained with carefully controlled color palettes, or enlivened by the dramatically theatrical use of light and shadow and judicious application of texture.
He uses a blog page as a portfolio, and you can view a variety of images from his professional projects including character design, as well as personal work, figure drawing, portraits and landscape paintings.

The word is that mothers are partial but the paintings speak for themselves. Feeling proud is a wonderful thing.
Great works. The tension between wild line and balanced composition (that is – caricature exaggerations and “realism”) is particularly exciting.
