I take private lessons for French horn and piano. For the past few years, I have attended solo and ensemble competition and earned high ratings.

Other Education: I have yet to think about this.

I’d like to freelance, and do anything I can get my hands on.

Context: I do traditional and digital art, my style varies, but the main style is an anime/ manga style that I’m in the midst of developing. I would be okay with doing work for other people, but my end goal is to create a graphic novel of my own. Right now I’m struggling with getting my art out to the right eyes, I’m not sure who I’d appeal to or how to get their attention. I’m also struggling to find direction and theme to place into my art, all together I feel like what I’m doing isn’t as organized as it could be.
College: I am sophomore who is an art student at Springfield college. I’m studying what they call Computer graphics and digital design. I’ve improved traditional skill taking a few drawing classes, and I have taken 2D and 3D animation, but I did not learn much from either of the classes, aside from 3D sculpting. I would have liked to gain a full/ better understanding about both, but the professor that instructed both classes wasn’t the best teacher. As far as art goes, this is as far as I’ve gone.
Other Education: I try to self tech in aspects of learning the human body which is slowly improving, but taking the correct steps in a learning all of my basics has proven to be difficult in some cases, such as hands, proportion, and motion in any figure.
Activities: I try to draw when I can, and when I’m motivated. Inspiration is gathered from watching anime, o other forms of entertainment, or from simply scrolling on instagram. I’ve tried to make drawing a daily habit which is slowly getting there.
Job Experience: I have no job experience in art.
Soft Skills: I try to write stories from time to time to help improve skills needed for graphic novels.
Hard Skills: N/A
Other: Working with others that could potentially have the same vision as I do is something I’d like to do. Not sure how to find such people though.
