When given a glimpse of the past raised some remorse. back to the time when early entry college almost 4 years ago, when the first after graduating from high school, I continued studying design in order to learn the art. Several years through college I was not satisfied because the knowledge gained only basic course plus I know a friend college friends who have the talent ... it made me less confident since then my passion for drawing began to decrease, therein lies the regret WHY I MUST GIVE UP !?
Then my college life to flow as it is, all of a sudden in the middle of the road I ask myself, so what after graduation? then I reflect and think about things that most enjoy doing ... and the answer back to the drawing. From there I took the decision to become an illustrator after graduate ( i'm not yet graduate till now -_-"). Since then I started to re-learn drawing, searched many tutorials on Deviantart and Youtube. In 2010 I bought my first graphic tablet Wacom Bamboo (i still use it today), with the hope of drawing skills could be better, but when it tried was not as easy as it seems, it was difficult to do digital drawing, and again I give up ... WHY I do it AGAIN!!??
However, it does not last long, in the next semester in 2011 when I took a course internships and begin learning to use my wacom bamboo and develop my portfolio. When I accepted an internship at a studio illustration and game developers in Bandung (Jotter Production) as a 2D Artist ,my ability start to honed, i learn more basics of Photoshop and of course basic drawing, when undergoing an internship there, I worked on several projects for the gaming assets, there I learned isometry and animation. for almost 2 months internship in place I got a lot of experience and useful knowledge though short and heavy but worked in the studio is very fun and add a lot of insight about the industry.
2 Months After serving his apprenticeship I came back to campus. As the end of 2011, I was invited by a senior to create an exhibition on campus and immediately formed an illustration community in my college . The community name is SEMANGKA YEAAAPH !!! I gave the name was taken from the trend line that gives the spirit at that time, a silly name and arise spontaneously. Until this day that community still active and has held 3 times exhibition on my campus, we are still actively interact via Facebook (we rarely meet in person). In there I met many friends who are fun and talented, we work and learn together. From there I love drawing more and more and practicing almost every day in order to be a good drawing/painting (I'm not giving up this time ... hehehe)
When recalling the past, always arise regret; "Why I first did not study drawing serious back then?" but the regret is merely a further step forward for evaluation. When I remember it now, I encourage myself to be more serious in reaching my goal and try not to repeat the same mistakes ...
that's my story and my worse English writing :v
