3D Artist


Who is Lontarz Lin?

“I’ve just completed my 2 year course of Game Development and I’m probably a 3D artist or Game developer. A Few years ago, I was actually thinking of studying engineering, but a game has inspired me to change my decision. Now I think this is best decision I’ve ever made, because now I love to do what I am doing now.”

Remembering an artist’s name shows that you care. It’s not all about the artwork, but also who created it! If you could ask Lontarz Lin any question, which one would it be? Post it in the comments down below!

  • A couple of extra questions:

    Do you remember the games which made you decide to pursue game dev?
    What other games do you play?
    Are you planning on doing any more fanart like your blue eyes? If so which ones are you planning to do?

      “The interest built up from those old school games I enjoyed. At the time I was making the choice, games that inspired me were .hack series and okami.

      The games I played are mostly from ps1 and ps2, after my secondary school life I rarely got any time to explore new games. The games I enjoyed were Final Fantasy 7, Legend of Dragoon, Digimon world 3, Yu-Gi-Oh forbidden memories, Monster Rancher 2, Brigandine and more…

      Yes, I do like to do more fanart like red eyes black dragon. Hard to say which to come first because depends on the idea I have sometimes.”
