Australia | Flinders University / CDW Studios
I wanted to work in the games/entertainment industry when I had a passion for creating art but also playing video games. I want to create immersive art and fictional worlds for players to be part of as well as telling stories through characters & creatures.
I started to draw after I saw the drawings of amazing Alan Lee for the Lord of the Rings films back in 2001. I am passionate in my craft and draw every day, developing my understanding of nature and the world in general trough pen, paper and wacom pro tablet. Aaron Blaise's animated films inspired me, which is why I started to learn 2d animation.
Love flims and games and a Wannabe Artist
When I saw what many of the products that were created by people of the industry were capable of making me feel; like the deep, strong emotions in the LOTR and hobbit movies (Bilbo strongest character), or the epicnes of the Warcraft" universe ; or when I knew that "In this corner of the world" was, and still is my favourite movie for its heartwarming way of protraying gratitude and humanity. When even agains all odds, I still enjoyed drawing and learning new stuff about it.
Netherlands | NHTV Breda / Buas
About four years ago I found out about universities that could teach me the ins and outs of creative media and game technologies. Since I already loved creating art of all sorts but never wanted to just go to art school this sounded great to me. Being able to work for movie or game companies turned out to be the goal I needed to pursue a career in creative media and I have not regretted my choice. I enjoy creating creatures and drawing animals most and hope to keep doing so in my future career.
Australia | Griffith University
I realised I wanted to work in the creative industry while teaching and hiking through Nepal where I picked up a pen for the first in a long time with the sheer joy of drawing what surrounded me. I drew for a month straight daily and for hours and haven't looked back.
Indonesia | Semarang State University
I was studying art from very beginning, when i was a kid, and i enjoying every single things when i make a new thing, and when i was in Junior highschool i started to make my own personal project, even its not good enough to see, but it makes my art experience developed. I have done a few project from industry, comic, illustration and character design for game projects and graphic novels when i'm in university. And i started to develop my art education and skill again to be a pro artist.
I've had an instict to draw since I was born, and I used to imagine and create these complex fantasy worlds in my head all the time, but I realized that I want to become a part of the entertainment industry after I graduated from architecture school, it was right then that my head made a click.
