Hello everyone, on this discussion board.
I am a new user on this site, and I have recently started to do drawing lessons for cartooning. I'm now thinking about wanting a job for 2D animation in the future. Right now, I'm still trying to move up a lot of levels in my drawing experience. I've been inspired since I was a kid with all the shows, movies I liked, I did it mostly with tracing certain pictures/posters. I would consider myself a beginner still. I feel like I'm about 5-10 years younger by doing this because I was still drawing stuff like how I did back then and it looked bland and dull. But, I'm kinda afraid (or I don't have a lot of faith) about this, I feel like no one would take me as an animator or cartoonist and probably not even like my talent. I still kind of suck at it...
I just turned 17 and I am in senior high school and I have yet to get into college to get a degree, but I'm not even sure if we'll still have 2D in the world and that's what I want. Right now, my school is not very good when it comes to animation but I have a class coming up that I'll probably get to use an animation program.
I mean, I want to address this to anyone on this forum, I would like some advice or something to show that I should pursue this and if I want to. Hope you take the time to read this and maybe chat with me. Maybe I could make a friend or two on here.
