Hello and welcome!
I'm an art student that hopes to someday work in animation. I'm always looking to improve, so if you have any advice, I would love to hear it. :)

Yep, just got the news that I was rejected from the program (for a second time). For everyone watching me, especially the artists who're working professionally in the animation industry, I just wanted to ask if you had any advice for improving my artwork? I really want to work in animation but am unsure what my work is missing exactly. I mean, I kind of have a general idea, but I would just really appreciate any and all input. Thank you so much in advance, and thanks all you guys for watching me in the first place.

Happy birthday!
I still remember that awesome Legends of the Hidden Temple-inspired commission you did me!

Thanks! And I do too; it was a very memorable and fun piece to work on :D

Great! I just wish I had ideas of how to continue the story or expand upon it. But unlike with the comic I'd been writing for 5 years (I'm up to page 70), with this one, I didn't have ideas come to me. A shame, because I'd love to portray what these kids are going through in that life-or-death obstacle course. But I was never able to come up with anything concrete, anything that could make it into a comic form or even a large detailed singular picture.

I think you have a great art style. I just have no idea what to do with it if I'd commission you! A shame, because I'd love to see that art style put to great use.

Thank you so much! If you ever do have an idea come to you, I would happily draw it out for you in another commission. :)

And also wow, congrats on 70 pages!
