How did you learn to paint digitally?

I started to learn painting digitally using real photo references. The goal was to get closer to hyperrealism. But since I am now working in the game industry, I began focusing more on hand painting because it gives me more flexibility and creativity when it comes to the color range. Luckily, I've met talented artists in the videogame industry who have shared their knowledge and experience with hand painting. Nowadays, I am developing an interest in watercolors and oil painting for my personal artistic creativity.

How do you keep your portfolio up-to-date? Any tips?

Here are two tips for keeping your portfolio up-to-date for those who want to know:

First, find your own artistic identity. The portfolio should present your specialty. Popular artists have works that are instantly recognizable as theirs.

Secondly, organize your portfolio after you finish the project. The value of a portfolio goes down over time if it isn't updated because new works are constantly coming out. So update your portfolio after every project.

Who are your favorite artists, traditional or digital, and can you explain why?

I have tons of favorite artists, both traditional and digital. I've always been inspired by their talent. I'd like to mention a few from the digital area; as many people may know, these artists have been in the industry for a while.

Robh Ruppel: He does concepts for the film and game industry. He has a strong sense of color harmony and composition which contributes to his own unique style.

Jungseung Hong: He worked on the character Davy Jones from the Pirates of the Caribbean films and other major films. He has a strong knowledge of anatomy.

Soa Lee: She has been a specialized character illustrator for a long time and has developed her own unique style.

How do you like to unwind after a hard day's (or night's) work?

Try to avoid digital things to help my eyes and body to relax. I also like to walk around and come up with ideas concerning a story for my personal project.

If you could choose any superhero power, what would you take, and why?

I was never asked this question from an interview before. Well, this is very interesting.

I'd like to choose The Flash because I could work much faster with his ability. It would be amazing to be able to see the results of my labor in full 3D as soon as I thought of it.
