Hello, deviants! Here is my first journal after long time I have this DA account but never write any journal even just one. Special thaks for my watchers and for every great persons around here who gave favs for my works . All of you are really something for me.
For the first time, let me introduce myself. My complete name is Umair Shoddiq Abu Khansa. Yes, from that Arab nomina, some common persons can think that I'm a terrorist member or an Indonesian ISIS commander *LOL XD. Thought, actually I didn't look like an Arab anymore but more like other pribumi (indigenous Indonesians), exactly from mixed Javanese-Batavian family (my mother has a Chinese-Malay Muslim root and my father has a bit Portuguese root -there's rumour he also has a Sephardic Jewish descent. I don't know, God knows more ). But, if you ask am I a Muslim? Yes, I am. But not so pious Muslim. Me and my brother were raised in Sunni Muslim household. I don't mind with the persons from other religions. Born and living in Indonesia as a multicultural country, I befriends with other persons from other ethnics, languages, and religions. And... that's so LOVELY . For us, Indonesians, diversity is beautiful and it's a hidden power.
As a man who has a love in art, I always imagine every beautiful things that I can make it into something more beautiful for me. I learning some Photoshop basic since I was in 3rd Grade Senior High School and continue it as a student in a College. Now, I live in Yogyakarta, city of art and culture, one of the most visited city in Southeast Asia. I can get some inspiration from books I read, films I watched, or video games I played. My favorite films are Riddley Scott's Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, and Kingdom Of Heaven. Also I love Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park and Saving Private Ryan.
People asks me, how I made some surrealism pictures? That's actually not so easy, but not so complicated. So, I humbly said that my works not so great There's more great persons here that can make more beautiful works than me
How'd I get inspiration to make those pictures. Let me tell you that I often got a dream about beautiful sky with stars, nebula, and planets appeared while I slept (and I hope I can see that). The inspiration also came by some anime I watched, especially those created by Ufotable and Makoto Shinkai's ComixWave.
Once again, special thanks for other deviants, my watchers or not, especially for those who gave favs for my works. I hope inspiration always come to my mind and my imagination will never die. Thank you
