Is­land life A new Sin­ga­pore event sees artists and il­lus­tra­tors from comics, cin­ema and video games come to­gether to share ideas

ImagineFX - - Imagine Nation News -

Spread over three days, host­ing nine speak­ers and over 500 at­ten­dees, START is Asia’s first dig­i­tal de­sign fes­ti­val.

The event, or­gan­ised by art col­lege 3dsense Me­dia School, brings to­gether artists and il­lus­tra­tors from the worlds of comics, cin­ema and video games to share their ideas and in­spi­ra­tions in Sin­ga­pore.

“It’s not about who is more suc­cess­ful,” Stan­ley ‘Art­germ’ Lau says, “nor who is more tal­ented. But to in­spire a new gen­er­a­tion of artists in an au­then­tic man­ner.”

That said, Stan­ley is one of Sin­ga­pore’s most suc­cess­ful dig­i­tal artists, hav­ing worked on AAA games and block­buster films. “I’ll be tak­ing a tongue-in-cheek look at the im­por­tance of build­ing a fan base and a brand,” he says. “I’ll also talk about fan art and how it can fa­cil­i­tate an artist’s ca­reer. For my mas­ter­class, I’ll be ex­plain­ing how I cre­ate my at­trac­tive fe­male art­works and make them come alive.”

Chino Rino Vis­ual Lab co-founder Ed­uardo Peña is also on the bill. He’ll be ex­plain­ing what con­cept artists do – from project con­cep­tion to com­ple­tion.

START runs be­tween 26 and 28 June. Find out more at www.startevent.sg.

At START Ed­uardo Peña, who painted the above, will present an in­dus­try

in­sider’s view of the con­cept art process.

Stan­ley, who painted this im­age, wants START to “in­spire a new gen­er­a­tion of artists in an au­then­tic man­ner.” This art­work, fea­tur­ing Princess Peach, is the cover of Stan­ley’s Kick­starter­funded, de­but art book, due to be pub­lished later this year.
