The New Masters of Fantasy 2005
The New Masters of Fantasy 2004

I was born in Budapest, in 1974. I work as a freelance illustrator, graphic designer, and concept artist since 1997.
I work for several publishing houses, game developers, and advertising agencies worldwide. I mostly illustrate roleplaying and collectible card games like Dungeons & Dragons, Warhammer, Warhammer 40,000, A Game of Thrones, etc. In 2004 and 2005 I was voted among The New Masters of Fantasy artists and had been exhibited twice in the NMoF – A Collection of the Year’s Best Fantasy Art. I often work with my collegue Richard Vass, one of our artworks has been selected to appear in Spectrum 19 in 2012.

In 2012 I started a carreer as a tattoo artist. You can find me in the word famous Dark Art Tattoo in Budapest. From 2014 January I was a permanent guest artist at Pendragon Tattoo, Germany (Heilbronn, Neuenstein, and Markelsheim). In 2014 October I moved to Oslo, Norway, and work there as a full time tattoo artist at the Art & Soul Tattoo. In my free time I also make illustrations.

"With all the experience and professionalism of a consummate artist, Peter Tikos is an absolute pleasure to work with. Peter first caught my attention through the slush-pile of all things, and has since proven himself over and over to be an absolute pro. A disciplined artist with a solid grounding in the fundamentals of creating world-class art, Peter continues to take direction well and prove himself a top-tier artist even under tight deadlines and heavy work-loads. His work is exceptional and his unique visual storytelling continues to stop fans in their tracks. I look forward to watching his career for a long time to come."

Hello sir,
I hope you are well :)

I'm working for an international publishing house as a graphic designer in Turkey. I saw your works at deviant art and I liked them very much. Especially those related odysseus.… and…

So I want to ask permission to use one of them on the cover of a book. The book is about the Odysseus of Homeros. I was wondering what do I need to grand rights for iti if posible. (copyright fees e.t.c.)

Many thanks,
