SATKUNAM

I currently finished my Masters at Escape Studios. I love both video games and movies, especially the characters that help build the world and bring fantasy into reality. I would like to start a career as being a Character Artist.

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM JOB TO START YOUR CAREER WITH?

A dream job to start my career would be a Junior Modeller or Character Artist at a place where I can work on real projects as well as learn new things to improve my skills as an artist.

DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN FIVE WORDS OR LESS.

Eager to learn and improve.

WHAT'S YOUR HOBBY?

Consuming media is my favourite hobby, watching movies, tv shows and anime, playing all sorts of games and listening to music. These give me the inspirations to create 3D art as well as 2D digital and traditional. Another hobby is love observing my surroundings and capturing that in my photography.

WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 5 YEARS?

That is difficult to say as I want to explore all the different roles within the industry just to give me a deeper understanding of the process to create the final product.

DESCRIBE YOUR DREAM JOB.

My dream job is to be a Game Director working on a new game.

WHICH MOVIE/GAME INSPIRED YOU THE MOST TO CHOOSE THIS CAREER PATH?

James Cameron's Avatar was a movie I watched way too many times. It was the first time I felt like this fantasy world is really believable. I also loved the character/creature designs which inspired me to want to do creature sculpting.

IF YOU WOKE UP IN A VIDEOGAME, WHAT WOULD YOUR SPECIAL ABILITY BE?

I would probably want the ability to learn different things super quick, there are just so many interesting things around us but they require years of study to understand them.

WHY DO YOU DESERVE A GREATER SHARE OF SPACE IN 

THE YEAR BOOK?

Everyone should get a good amount of space, since everyone worked hard during the year.
