Hello, I am seventeen and I plan to be an artist- hopefully an animator, although I'm beginning to worry my skills are not getting good enough fast enough.
I have never had any schooling, I am completely self taught. I began with lots of tracing from those 'how to draw' books and soon began to draw without the book. I still turn for their reference from time to time- but I mostly draw what is on my mind. And a fun fact for you, the expression on my character usually matches mine while I draw them. . . so sometimes my mom asks why my eyes look so big when I draw.
