 *When i was 5 years old,my mind was captured by a shape of a scissor and its bright green color...
so i traced it and color it,about 12 scissors with 12 colors, yeah, i used 12 colors snowman marker back then :D, my style consist of abstract geometrical from objects around me...

*5-8, I rarely draw, but i read so many mangas, especially doraemon and other Fujiko.F.Fujio mangas,
my style heavily influenced by them...and this time i usually drew many magical tools and kid's doodles, like a triangle headed stickman, round giant whale,flying box with chicken feet,man eater kaiju etc...they were so surreal but it was very fun...i wish i can go back into that time, when my imagination was still very wild!

*8-10, I made some friends with the same hobby, still heavily influenced by Fujiko F.Fujio + lego...
yes, i play lego and created many thing using that, i made a book that contains many magical tools doodle, it is similar to catalog, but with a children doodle quality, it was very imaginative, because it was made from 1 class request, they describe the tools that they want, and i drew it on my catalog..as i remember, that book called "N.o.m crazy market" and i even don't understand what was N.o.m...or i already forgot it...

*10-12,I created a comic,the title is "Tarzan Kota" or "City Tarzan",
the story of an ordinary employee, who accidentally drink an experimental drug called "Beast Drink", he became a super powered human,who only use trouser as his clothes, his enemies are aliens,failed experimental product,power klenjers,thunderman,dark lord, monsters,bastard ticks,etc...it consist of 5 books, 80-120 page per book, full of imagination and parody,also imagination...
Unfortunately, these books lost in a flood and borrowed by my friend...i dunno where it is now...

*12-17,i dont have a friend who likes to draw, so i rarely draw in this moment...
i started to read other author manga beside Fujiko F.Fujio, i watch Mazinger,Gaiking,Guyverd,Jiban,Bicrosser,Metalder, etc, my drawing changed into robots...and mechanical weapon, and i only draw on the exam sheet....i also play PSX game like Final Fantasy and Xenogear,almost all of my game was Squaresoft games and what i watch is digimon & pokemon (i like digimon more)...and it was also influenced my style, i draw monsters...machina monsters

*17-18,i met the internet, and i involved in a online game named "Getamped"...

the fighting game that give you a facility to create your own characters....

i created almost 300 characters in that game...i met many friends,many client, and i realized that i had a passion to create characters and want to see it move...alive! in that game, i saw many of my characters was used by my clients..it made me happy :D
I also made some animations for the forum avatar, and emoticons...

My style in this stage was 3D chibis...and i drew mo rarely...because i made these directly in the computer...i also influenced by anime like yuyu hakusho,yat,flame of recca,gundam,etc..As a result,my works become more anime-ish...

*2008 - 2009, i enrolled to the university,Animation major...
after about 6 years of drawing hiatus...i forced to draw again...in this 1st and 2nd semester, my drawing style was like reset to zero...
but i cope quickly, because it was a must, i learn new theory, and my friend is all art people...so they influence me heavily, in this stage, i was also very gloomy person, so almost all of my arts have a dark sensasion to it...



in this stage, my arts are consist of abstract art, and made using mixed medias...


*2009, i focused on digital arts..
because my computer lesson was already starting that semester,my medium and artworks also changed into digital...and i enjoy it because it is cheaper :P

But most of them are dark themed and consist of photo manipulations...


*2010, i focused on animation and 3d things...
Last semester in just a introduction for the animation lesson,in this stage my arts made up by 3d things and animation, also videos..
a rarely draw 2D, because 1 of my lecturer said : "Your drawings are suck, they are too messy", and my score always below B...that make me think that my 2D drawing is suck and i focused more on 3D...



*2011,i became even more focus in 3d things...
my 3d skill has leveled up from last year..even work for internship this year...but i still  dont have a unique style...i also made some cg effects..


In this stage, my 3d art start with chasing realism + mechanical things,but it take long time to render, because my pc is an old pc...so i start to explore toon shader render more...and after that i watch Usavich,it is very cuutee....

so my style influenced by it and i Started-to change my artwork image from a gloomy-dark into cute-adorable...it was hard...


*2012,final assignment...
it come into my last year in university...and i must done some final assignment this year...
at 1st, i want to create some dark comedy with this style...


But my lecturer didn't agree with that theme, and i was forced to made a cute-animal-animation...aand...it change my style into these..

My style became cute animals-2D render style....because of this one,i found my love in 2d render :D,
I cant draw properly, but i want to make 2d animations...i only can create 3d..why not both? 3d animation with toon looks...

*End of 2012 until middle of 2013...i was work at animation studio again...
While in there, i work as 3d artist, mainly as animator, but i also work as compositor and renderer for "Bayusekti Movie Project" ...

My artwork was not improved because i work for my job in this stage...for other people...what is improved is my compositing and animation skills..

*Middle of 2013..I left from animation studio... 
Then i have some free time there...but i somewhat bored with 3D,and try to active more in Deviantart...and i try to draw 2D...back to traditional..

so after that i make some more doodle...using digital media to improve and searching for a style...
at 1st, i try with black and white...

then i try color..

but after i reviewed it to some people, they said that my drawing is creepy...industry will never like my style, people like cute things! once again, i want to change my style, i tried to draw something that are cute...that is my target...
so, i drew pokemon...


still not so cute enough eh? and i realized..that whenever i try to draw cute-cute things...i always end up with messy-sketchy lines...and i surrender to it...that is my fate...that is my style...some feedback in deviantart also said that i must keep to draw with that style.. that project also made me found a coloring style...and i improved it more in my next project...

by watching some artist that i like, and try to add some element from their art that i like,glow,crosshatch,proportions,coloring,brushing,etc..And of course, still aiming for a cute style...but i still think it was not cute...


*End of 2013..2D style... 
Then..i went to Australia...in there, i dont have 3D nor 2D, i dont have pc,etc...then i realized...that i can use my phone to draw..so in this stage, i draw using my cellphone...and...it is the 1st time my friend said that i can draw a cute thing...

err...the cuteness still mixed with some creepyness...and i also think my drawings are too generic and too anime...so i try proportion exploration...with a slender figure and dot eyes...i also draw some animals...

as you can see above...my color and drawings become more and more dark and creepy again,my lines also become out of control...
When in there, i have a big crave for 3D, i also made some concept story, but i cant execute it because i dont have the tools needed..
Beside 2D, i also take some photos there...


*End of 2013..2D style to 3D... 
My friend said, that he want to see my drawing in 3D..so i think..i will made 1 of my drawings into 3D...but if it is just a normal 3D, it will be boring...and then i tried to transfer my 2D style into 3D..and this is happened:


*The beginning of 2014...Skybreaker project and control...
After creating 2D to 3D, decided to make a 3d short animation...the one that i planned in Australia... 
So i tried to experiment with the main character...

From concept sketch,this is my old OC, but i lost his data and only found this one...
omgwtf so small...and i created him back..into the one above
i tried chibi, but it is so lame after i tested it for fighting animation, it can't be epic battle...it become an adorable battle,chibi limbs are too short...as a result, i change his proportion into a battle-fit proportion, test some effect etc...tweak the proportion more,add some concept to made it more unique,then i revised it become this


*End of January,2014..i draw again...
I realized that my drawing become too messy, the background and the character is out of control...so,i tried to make the bg more plain,paper...

But then i think it is to plain, so i come back to colored BG...



In my journey, i also found some artist that inspire me with their art, their art influenced me when i searching for my art style :P they are:


Some of them maybe don't know me :P,but i just want to say thanks to them..they inspire me...
And my journey still continue....
