Bich (Kim) Nguyen
Artist | Traditional Art
United States

Portfolio Site | Tumblr

Kim Nguyen is an aspiring concept artist and illustrator from the DFW area of Texas who loves to paint and come up with design ideas. Her main tools of the trade include watercolors and casein paints. Occasionally, she'll also use Photoshop and Manga Studio 5 for finishing touches on traditional paintings. She is obsessed with patterns, and her goal is to learn as much as she can about various cultures. Her hypothesis is that if she can learn the significance of iconography and visual motifs in relation to specific cultures, she may be able to tailor designs for concepts that strongly communicate their background story.

Since graduating from the University of Texas at Arlington in 2013, her work has been featured in Guillermo del Toro's "The Book of Life" movie.

Oooh. I thought it'd be fun to do this to walk down memory lane. So here we go!

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

It says I've been on here for 10 years, but I've been using this account on and off. I created this account when I was 13 and then used it for about two years before I stopped and used it intermittently. Then I started using it again a little bit before starting my freshman year in college to keep up with some artists I met through an art forum, Polykarbon. This was about a year before I used the account intermittently again. Then, I didn't use it again 'til 
after I graduated college to upload work for a professional portfolio.

So I'd say, really, a total of 4 and 1/2 years.

2. What does your username mean?

It was named after the Greek goddess of retribution, Nemesis. I meant to make an illustration of her when I first started this account, but . . .


3. Describe yourself in three words.

sweets-lovin' artist. Who doesn't love good nom noms?

4. Are you left or right handed?


5. What was your first deviation?

Hahahahaha. Wow. This was originally for a Neopets art contest about 11 years ago.

6. What is your favourite type of art to create?

Fantasy, usually based on non-Western ancient cultures, and experimental designs.

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

Kazuma Kaneko's style and the general SMT art direction, hands down.

8. What was your first favourite?

One of the first, to be fair.

Usually watercolor pieces or traditional art in general. 

10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

This is tough. I can't narrow it down to just one. So, I'm going to list my top 4 5 favorite deviant artists and my favs from them:

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

I don't think I've gotten that impression yet. It depends. Are they pretty down-to-earth and cool to hang out with? B-)

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

Not sure yet. We'll see though. :)

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?

Watercolors and casein paint. Also plasticine clay and Sculpey whenever I get the chance. Oh, and I would love to go back to my jewelry and metal work roots.

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

New temporary art room at my house. I would love to work outdoors if I could, but not in this heat.

15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

Seeing artists that I suggested for the recent Daily Deviation Drive get on the front page! Give a big thanks to :iconliliwrites: for creating the event!
