Can you please tell us a little about yourself and what projects you
are working on at the moment?
Hello, My Name is Rudy Siswanto, I am an Illustrator and Concept artist based in
Surabaya, Indonesia. I specialize in Creature based animal illustration and concept
art. I am working on Illustration for riot and CD project Red now. We chose to feature Rudy Siswanto’s work because of the fantastic animal based Illustrations. It was a difficult job choosing a few images to feature when there are so many amazing works in his portfolio.
How did you get started? Where you an artistic child?
Actually my interest for Drawing has started from when I was little just like other kid,
Drawing and playing game is life. At that time, I didn’t know if I was interested or not,
I just enjoy it…
Interview with Thomas Howes (@nodosaurs) an illustrator that I first noticed on Instagram for his unique illustration style. He loves and draws his inspiration from fanart and is building up a collection to release a fanart zine. Read the full interview here and keep an eye out for his fallout based webcomic.
Until recently I didn’t realize how versatile Adobe Illustrator was as a program. I have used the design program for year but I never imagined using Illustrator for anything but logos and flat illustrations. That was until I joined Instagram and begun stumbling though the many fantastic designer profiles. @fugstrator (seriously check out his profile) was the first designer I’d seen using Illustrator to create realistic illustrations using the feather effect and his artwork has inspired many of my own works.
