The first time I started drawing was at age 7-8, my parents got me a Mickey Mouse Projector and I remember spending hours and hours with it, also I played with videogames more than I should. As I grew older, I moved away from this "hobby" and ended up focusing more on health sciences. It was when I entered the degree of Medicine, two year ago , when I realized that what I really wanted was create. Even though that the world of Art is not as stable, I made the decision to be part of the 3d.

Since I was introduced to games in secondary school, I have been through many different genres of online games/pc games. All of them had fascinated me with their own worlds, story and characters. Promptly after graduating, I decided on full time studying art and modelling for 3D so that I would be able to craft out a world just like those that I have been to. It’s been years since that first step but this resolve is still going strong within me.

I have always been in love with gaming and drawing since I was young. It was around my O levels that I decided that I wanted to pursue a job doing what I love - which was making art for games. Despite the advice from my teachers a career in art was not realistic, I persevered and enrolled in LASALLE College of the Arts and 3DSense Media School, where my passion as a game artist was strengthened.

I was exposed to video gaming through friends and family since childhood. I have always wondered, what sorcery actually goes on behind the scenes which brings a game to life? As I was browsing through the courses offered by the Polytechnics in Singapore, I came across "Visual Effects". I was excited as this was what I have been searching for! Throughout the course I fell in love with 3D Modelling. Currently honored to work at Bandai Namco Studios Malaysia as a Junior Environment Artist.

While searching for art schools, I had gained more insights and rediscovered art for myself in 3D virtual form. Only then, I realised I have been limiting my passion in 2D space and was stopping myself to improve and advance further. My passion grew stronger over time and I just knew I will never get bored, even if I decide to make it as my profession and career. I am currently working in Bandai Namco Studio, and I have not regretted any of my choices ever since.

I’ve loved the arts ever since I was in high school, because I’ve always been intrigued by the thought of creating something out of nothing. But it wasn't until my exchange year in Melbourne while I was studying Digital Design that I got introduced to 3D arts, specifically Film and Animation. After I graduated, I decided to go to 3dsense Media School to learn more about this industry. It was there that I found my passion for Compositing and I knew then that this was the career for me.

While studying Computer Science in college, I was exposed to art, media and photography. I was most interested in cinematography and eventually gave up the programming degree in pursuit of film-making and dove into visual effects. I've developed a strong passion for building creative solutions for problems in production and post. At 3dsense, meeting other passionate artists, especially my mentor, Craig Stevenson, helped me grow and learn to dream bigger.

I realised that drawing and designing captured much more of my interest compared to the subjects I was studying in junior college. Hence, I entered an animation school without really knowing what to expect and just having the love for art, films and video games. I was learnt a lot about the 3D animation world there and grew to love modelling, thus setting myself on the path to becoming a 3D modeller.

Ever since I was little I would always watch cartoons or play with my Nintendo DS or PS 2. I never noticed just how much I enjoyed these types of entertainment until I watched Tin Tin Secret of The Unicorn in 2011 and was thinking of joining the industry in the future. However, I doubted the decision of joining and even started questioning my choices after getting accepted in a public university. Eventually, I finally built up the courage to make my own decisions and join the industry!

I first watched Pixar's Finding Nemo on DVD. The itself movie blew me away with its appealing characters, amazing environments and animation. When I watched the behind-the-scenes special features I was awed by the sheer artistry and work involved in bringing a fictional animated character like Nemo to life. It was my first insight into the creative industry of film and animation, and from then on, I knew I wanted to work in animation.

well. It is start from my secondary school. But before this, I quite like to draw, make hand-craft. What makes me really get in to this industry is when I was 13 years old, I watched a feature animated movie, which is "How to Train your Dragon". It was so amazing and I wish to become one of the part of the production team.

During my high school year, I really enjoy watching animated movies. When I had a chance to study aboard in the US, Animation is the first field that came across my mind. However, I've been always making the safest choices for my entire life so I wanted to overcome my fear of stepping out of my comfort zone for once. Therefore, I did a lot of research about the industry and with the support of my family, I've decided to follow my passion.
