Please describe what you do and where you are from.
I'm a CG artist working in the game industry. I started my CG career in Architecture visualization. I then became an environment artist, and eventually moved into character work. I love art in general :) Originally from China, I now live in the UK.

What’s the most important tool you use?
For me Maya, Photoshop and Zbrush are the most important tools, and oh, I can't do without Unreal Engine!
Khaleesi: The throne is mine! Real-Time character in Unreal Engine 4
Whose work (both past and present) do you really admire and why?
I grew up with traditional Chinese painting; it is in my blood, Later, I really started to appreciate classic oil paintings from the West. Paul Delaroch is one of the masters that recently caught my eye; his work is just so powerful and has inspired me do a tribute:
The Execution of Lady Jane Grey,The tribute
A long-time favorite CG artist is Olivier Ponsonnet; his work is and will always have a huge influence on me. A modern artist should go beyond the technicalities and the tools, and display the emotion behind their work.

What do you like to do away from the computer?
Any time after work, if the weather is good (I live in the UK, so it’s quite rare), I just really like to enjoy nature - travel, enjoy the sunshine, and forage in the woods with my partner Claudio, who gives me the most inspiration for art and life.
Is there something you are currently working on, or are excited about starting, that you can tell us about?
The only thing i can say is that we are working on some exciting things that are really pushing the realtime graphic quality. Hopefully can share with your guy soon :)
