We found that when we put together our contest in 99Designs that we were working with artists from all over the world. One such artist, Roni Yulianus Nurak, is a big fan of the Website, not only because he has an opportunity to win assignments, but also because he enjoys immersing himself in the huge community of designers it provides, allowing him to test and improve his skills.
“Too,” Nurak, who was born in Indonesia but now lives in Bandung, West Java, added, “I have the opportunity to learn lessons from not only the artists in Asia, but from artists all over the world.”
Like so many of the artists who competed in the 99Designs contest regarding the Tales of the Kingdom Trilogy, Nurak has been pursuing his skills and talent in art since he was in elementary school. While he enjoys working with pencil and paper, he also enjoys computer design. In fact, he is most interested in discovering what new things can be accomplished with graphic design, illustration and animation.
“The Tales of the Kingdom project,” he shared, “allowed me to develop a project in my own unique style.”
One of his favorite parts of the assignment was the fact that Tales of the Kingdom is not only an excellent read, but so effectively brings the Christian message in a non-overbearing way. He knew that his efforts would help to provide inspiration for all those who read it.
His challenge, as he worked, was to create a quality illustration that would correspond to the core story. He accomplished this by first presenting the character, and then developing the “atmosphere” the illustration presents!
