Romania

While in high school, In the 10th grade I decided to take a 180* turn from studying bio-chemistry, in my preparation to enter med school, to this adventure. Never has been a day the same, literally. It started as a hobby and an escape from all the non sense real world had to offer and it just grew and grew. I still don't know what I'm doing, but I know where I am going. I'm going big I can tell you that.

NetherRealm - Winner

Teng Xie Le (Shane Le)

Malaysia | The One Academy

I'm always pasisonate about creating arts and drawing, the path is clear that i will be taking creativity route. In mid of 2013, I fell in love with a Naughty Dog's video game "The Last of us", I was so amazed by the environment and the storytelling they're able to offer, and luckily I had the chance to see the art book of it, at that point i knew this is something i would love to do in the future, since then developed my love and passion towards conceptual or entertainment arts.
