 What do you makes a portfolio stand out to you?

Painting is my passion and my top priority. Three years ago, I also tried making animations with Spine and I am really happy so many people are interested in it too. So, now I like to see that kind of work.

What kind of training brought you to the level you’re at now?

I loved drawing since I was a child. Although my family is not really supportive, it’s my biggest passion. Now that drawing is an integral part of my life, I paint every time I have free time. I also find inspirations from ArtStation, Pinterest and Deviantart.  I’ve found so many great artists on these sites and the more I watch them create art, the more I want to improve my own work.

Tell us about one of your favorite projects.

Probably my D. VA fanart. In this piece, the lights, the composition, the colors, water…. all of them comes right from my imagination, my feelings to the final version and I am very satisfied with the result.

What is your advice for aspiring artists?

Live and pursue your passion. Try your best to achieve your dream because doing the job you truly love is the best thing that can ever happen to you.
