We met Yangtian Li during The Art Department | World Tour where she talked about her interests in concept art, 3D modelling, illustration and storyboarding. During her career she specialised working with different styles of characters, understanding the process of realising concept art into 3D models. She describes how she would often step out of her comfort zone, trying out new styles, such as Sci Fi, just to give herself the opportunity to learn and practice new techniques.
Yangtian also discussed her influences, affinity for Art Nouveau and how fashion designs sometimes find their way into her art-works. As a matter of fact, this is one of the traits she feels characterises her work process: being able to mix in her designs all elements she enjoys! A very inspiring interview with Leon van Rooij, not lacking tips for other aspiring artists.
