A mistake I've made with every art form I've pursued is not learning my fundamentals first. Nothing necessarily my fault, foundations weren't something that was emphasized to me in the beginning of my journey.
I've come to a point in my learning process that fundamental principles cannot be ignored. You can only get so far before the magic of technique runs out, and it shows. Applying technique without principle is like building a house without a frame. It won't hold for long. I think all art forms have this in common.
2018 will be focused on "starting over" in a sense. I think that if I solidify my understanding of foundations then I can meet myself in the middle with both art and dance.
I've also learned that you learn the most by standing on the shoulders of giants.

|I'm a 22 year old graphic design student who taught herself digital illustration starting at age 12. I'm from Houston, Texas. I specialize in animals, people, and am learning how to paint environments. My main program is Photoshop CC. I wish to learn 2D animation down the road and create my own short-film projects. My goal for my career is to excel in concept art and character illustration, hopefully to one day see my work come to life in video games and films.|
