In­dar Gu­nawan

ImagineFX - - Caravan Studio -­a­vanstu­ In­dar made the most of his in­tern­ship pe­riod at Car­a­van Stu­dio and is now em­ployed by the com­pany as a full-time dig­i­tal artist.

The dig­i­tal artist dis­cusses his role at the stu­dio and his favourite projects…

What do you do at Car­a­van Stu­dio?

As a dig­i­tal artist I mainly il­lus­trate game as­sets, card games, and some­times I colour comics.

What have been your favourite projects since start­ing at Car­a­van?

That’s a very tough ques­tion to an­swer, as there’s been a huge amount of ex­cit­ing projects so far. One of my favourites has been do­ing card il­lus­tra­tions for Kon­ami’s Yu-GiOh! games, which is very popular here. I’ve also en­joyed some of the art­works I’ve done for the Dun­geons & Dragons Dun­geon Mas­ter Guide.

How did you get the job? And what’s it like to be work­ing for Car­a­van Stu­dio?

I started as an in­tern at the stu­dio be­fore ap­ply­ing for a full-time artist po­si­tion and it’s been noth­ing but an awe­some ex­pe­ri­ence. We work on many dif­fer­ent types of projects – and some of them are for fa­mous com­pa­nies. The stu­dio’s work­ing at­mos­phere is a lot of fun, with work­mates who are al­ways play­ful and cheer­ful, and se­nior artists and staff are also very help­ful.

Do you re­ceive any for­mal or in­for­mal train­ing?

Be­ing an in­tern to begin with meant I got a lot of on-the-job train­ing. And I get a lot now, too! The stu­dio con­ducts in­ter­nal work­shops ev­ery two weeks, where se­nior artists share their se­cret tech­niques with the ju­niors at the com­pany.

What do you hope to achieve at Car­a­van?

I want to keep im­prov­ing my art skills and tech­niques – all so that I can be in­volved in some even more chal­leng­ing projects.

Odese is one of In­dar’s per­sonal works – a prac­tice piece for de­pict­ing mag­i­cal ef­fects.
