I hail from the UK, home of the red double decker buses and eternal drizzle
I was born here, but I'm Asian - half Malaysian-Chinese and half-Vietnamese. And no, I'm not good at math *burns her text books*
So far, I have been completely a traditional artist. I've dabbled in a range of media, including:
. Mechanical pencils
. Colour pencils
. Fine liners
I don't like to label myself as just being a manga/anime artist (although there's nothing wrong with that; I love manga and anime, and most of the people I watch are of this vein), but I like to think that I have my own unique style (although one undoubtedly influenced by manga and anime. I've been trying to move away from that little by little, although I'll always stick to cartoons). However, I've acquired a tablet and FireAlpaca last year, so I've started to practise painting digitally, too
In the future, I want to be an illustrator, particularly working in game and film concept and development art. After seeing some of the art for video games at the London Games Art Exhibition, as well as the art book for Rise of the Guardians (which, if you've not seen already, YOU MUST. Best animated film ever), I was completely blown away by the gorgeous art. I just knew then what I wanted to do.
My art will usually be about my characters and of the fantasy or surrealist genre (or both), because I love how you can do almost anything with fantasy. You're not constrained by the laws of reality, and there's so much scope for the imagination.If you want to see my art, check out my gallery! [link]
