Bamba Matondo, an engineer of the art of sketch.
I Graduated in fashion, never did any game-art study, because back in the days the industry wasn’t that secure. At least I was told, so I made the safe choice to study Media Design, This study was a mixture of different design studies, from graphic design to web design. I eventually quit the study in media design because it wasn’t the thing I wanted to do. I was more interested in designed characters. So I went and did a fashion school. Graduation in fashion but still decided to go back to my love for drawing.
I’m a starting artist specialized in digital concept art. My main strength is designing characters and creating stories for them. With every new design, a new world is brought to life. That what I like the most in creating digital art.
Most of the skills I’ve learned by doing a lot of self-studies on digital art. I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember. But with an art school background, I manage to add my knowledge of art fundamentals in my work and improve my skills.
How did you develop a fondness for a graphic artist?
Well, I got my fondness mostly as a child. By drawing a lot of the characters I thought were cool in the games and anime shows I’ve enjoyed. Wanting to be able to create a similar thing, I started sketching my characters quickly after. In time I would focus more on original characters than the existing ones.
How do you become a highly successful designer?
I’m always excited to start new challenges in projects. With challenging ideas, discovering new ways, and learning from them along the way. This way I hope to get the best results for my work.
