Indonesia,  Jakarta Monash University, Australia,  Honors of Multimedia and Digital Arts,  December 17, 2015
Ever since I started modding games at an early age, I knew from the start that I wanted to pursue a career in 3D graphics. Right after highschool I entered a course that allowed me to explore various forms of digital art, while honing the skills needed to specialize in 3D during my spare time.

To breathe life to characters designed by myself and others, is a process I feel completely expressed within a 3d digital medium.

I'd like to thank these talented artists whose work I have been allowed to model:

Charlene 'Catell-Ruz' Le Scanff - Mushroom Golem Concept Art
Aleksandr 'Niconoff' Nikonov - Steampunk Ironman Concept Art
