I've always been fascinated characters & cool stunning visuals within video games & movies I started drawing & doodling characters fighting when I was around 4 to 5 but only have really started to be confident & create pieces that I'm proud of at about 16. My goal back then was to aim for an artistic role in a game company & it still is today
I recall watching the first Transformers movie, which came out in 2007. How a car could transform into a massive talking robot with its mechanics moving about had me completely enthralled. As I began to study art and animation in my late teens, I got more interested in 3D animation, and 3D modeling on the sidelines and to pursue them as my career goal.
It was in 2007 when Transformer was just released. I was seven at the time and I remember watching it for the first time and being fascinated by it. All I could think of is how cool and realistic the robots were and how badly I wanted to be apart of the film, to live the life of a transformer. I used to go to bed every night, imaging that I was a transformer, hoping to really become a transformer in my dream.
I realised that when I was about 14 that I really loved animated and Hollywood films a lot. Since then, I was determined to enter the creative media industry to help people share their stories and bring them to life with the skills I've acquired. So far, it hasn't been easy but I sincerely hope to get better as an artist.
Ever since I learned how to draw when I was young I fell in love with the arts and having the freedom to express yourself through something other than just by word of mouth. The very first time I discovered about the world behind the scenes to movies and commercials I was immediately drawn to that line of work and thats where my passion of the entertainment and media industry sparked. Ever since than I started to have a better appreciation for the art behind every broadcast and advertisement.
I was around the age of 15 when I first realised I wanted to work in the creative industry. I didn’t start out wanting to do UX. I was a ‘sciency’ kid. I wanted to go deep into biology, figure out how things worked. I guess, deep down I’ve always wanted to discover and create. That curiosity I had as a kid grew alongside me. Designing user experiences is all about having curiosity, trying to understand how people think and act.
Creation and art direction are one some of my many passions, I have always been amazed by motion graphics at a young age, wondering how do people achieve such stunning visuals . The few years I've spent learning the basics and fundamentals at Nanyang Polytechnic has taught me to be innovative, adaptive and above all handling projects with judicious reasoning.
