My name is Lius Lasahido. Since early age I love to draw. When the time came where I should choose my major, I choosed DKV, Design Communication and Visual, which has connection with drawing but with better promising fortune rather than making comics, specially in Indonesia. After I graduated, I met Chris Lie who was starting an illustration studio.I heard from a friend about his success in the industry,which made me apply for position as illustrator in his studio, Caravan Studio.Starting from there I’ve been given various projects until now.
I love to read comics and watching movies, it influenced me and developed the love for drawing.
First I look at movies that I like, read literature, seeing art-books, reading comics, talking with friends, then sometimes i absorb what i need.
It was surprising at first for me about this industry deadline and quality, it made me to build and improve my skills more everyday, but in kind of fun way because I met people with same vision like me.
Start from brief, finding ideas, setting and gesture from the character, sending it to editor in rough sketches. After the editor approved it, I’ll start to paint it. Photoshop is my main tool, then pencil , acrylic then water color.
Seeing and knowing something, read a lot to improve imagination, Fill your visual library and last but not least, don’t feel satisfied quickly.
