I favorite a lot of things. Just a fair warning. :P I don't mean to fave-bomb, but it does happen on occasion.



Artist | Student | Varied
United States
Writer, artist, and programmer.

I'm earning a degree in Computer Science: Animation Emphasis, with minors in creative writing and mathematics! I love to do traditional drawing, digital painting, 3D art, animation, graphics programming, poetry, and stories. I'm continually trying to improve and get better, as I have a long way to go.

I do my best to return all llamas and respond to all messages! I am not always prompt with doing so, though. Feel free to message me, too -- I'm often busy, so I may take a while to reply, but I really enjoy talking to people.

I have a few future projects in mind, including some webcomics and a video game, but it might take a while to get those started. It will happen though. All in good time.

So I worked super hard and got accepted into Computer Science: Animation Emphasis. However, depression and ADHD-PI, combined with a general lack of organization, have been pretty rough on me lately. I haven’t gotten nearly enough done…So today is when this changes. I have an extremely difficult time accomplishing things without structure, so I have built an art plan. I am going to execute this. I will start to be more active here on DA, too. 

I will take a gap year before attending graduate school in order to get my master’s degree in computer science, with a concentration in graphics and animation. And then I will break into the industry as a technical artist. The gap year will be to recover, mostly, and to fill in the holes of the fundamentals I’ve missed. 

I will also be more diligent in updating my art Instagram:… 

I’ve also done some stuff for school which I haven’t posted, so I will probably upload that in the near future. 

Is this over-ambitious? Maybe. Quite possibly. But even if I only accomplish some of this, I will still improve and get closer to my goals! 

Check out what I’ll be doing this year:

Alternate: 1 week working on tutorials and fundamentals, 1 week finishing projects. Post finished products online! 

  • Also post the stuff you've already done. Include stuff from CS 355, CS 455, CSANM 354, and the film classes

Work on the film and video game in addition to this. Produce at least 3 quality pieces from each.
