I’m Ya Gao, a soon to be graduate Concept Artist and currently looking for an opportunity to employ my skills in the video game or animation industry. I used to work as a comic artist for more than 2 years. I’ve spent the last 2 years of my education specializing in character and environment art, and I can’t wait to get into the industry and continue my development as an artist.
