Thuan Duong is currently working as a CG freelancer, CG teacher, and leader of a collectible studio. What he appreciates the most about his job is the flexibility in time, and direction he can take his work to. He is always up to learning new things and sharing his knowledge and experience to others. The project that he is most proud of is the Talis project which is a concept that he created for an indie film and later remade into an OC. He exerted lots of time and effort on this project spending long nights working on her concept, armor, textures, and even had a chance to put her in a game engine.
Ever since he was a child, he liked drawing, legos, remaking toys from broken ones, breaking toys to make new ones, and this art of creating had never left him. Fast forward to the present moment, he is still utilizing his love for art and building parts to creating new characters, props, scenery, telling stories, painting statues, and experimenting on workflows. The feeling when his imagination take form is a reminder of why he started, motivating him to continue on. His advice to artists who are just starting out is to keep trying and keep failing. You only fail if you quit, so never give up!
