Summary

I guess you can say I've been an artist acting like a carpenter most of my life. Bitten by the artistic bug early in life, drawing pictures have always been a part of me since my earliest childhood memories and has never been extinguished. So after many backbreaking years in construction, I decided to take a chance on a different direction and pursue the course of art from what education can provide and started on a path in the multimedia program as the age of information technology (IT) was changing rapidly.

Jumping into the world of IT; I first had to learn from the ground up with computer architecture and work my way up to Multimedia, then onto Game Art & Design. These disiplines have extended my knowledge into the new medias of art and design - with traditional methods and with computers. With this new frontier of digital media still in it's early stages, computers and applications exploded in recent years, and has opened up a never-ending universe of creativity for me along with countless other talented artists I've met along the way. As for me, I intend on discovering as many new platforms and techniques to work with as I can. I hope some of my work will bring justice to some of my ideas and imagination - as impossible as that may seem.

Education can only take you so far. The rest is up to our own path of experimentation, adventure and passion.

Game Developer & Artist

Armandra Studios

I worked on a game project with Armandra Studios. A small group of game developers, including myself, designing a side scrolling sci-fi shooter and adventure games. Our main game platform will be for stand alone pc and possibly mobile app; later extending it to console platforms, such as XBox and PS. At any given moment we all wore different hats as job descriptions go, but my major tasks ranged from concept artist to graphic artist. My duties include a mixture of creating 2d graphics from 3d objects, vector and pixel graphics for game assets; such as player ship, enemies, weapons, effects, background environments and animated graphics. I had my fair share of helping with troubleshooting/debugging throughout production.
