Hi! my name is Ferdinand I'm a digital artist working as an Art Director in game and outsourcing company. Beside doing paintings i also love photography most of my images are landscapes. I really like shooting landscapes because it's gives you the freedom and have the chance to explore your world around you and there's no limits on how you visualize your creativity.  And it's a great source of inspiration and reference that i applied on my paintings. I traveled occasionally just to enjoy the pleasure and to embrace the awesomeness of our mother nature. Here are the sample of my landscape photos. And please visit my Flickr gallery for more l

Your art is magical and breathtaking!

your gallery is amazing, and most inspiring

Filipino concept artist??!!? Wow!!

Why does where he's from seem shocking to you? A great artist can come from anywhere!!

Well, that's not my point. I also live in the same country as him and artist being a job is demoralized here, my older countrymen thinking that being an artist has no definite path in life and has no stable income. "Go get a REAL job like lawyer, physician, engineer, etc."
Asian stereotype but it's real unfortunately.

So, seeing him being a professional who works in big companies feels rewarding.

Okay I see, my bad... I thought you were giving him sh*t because of where he was from but I see what you were saying now.
