Hello, my name is Ray. I'm kind of new to the forum. I been lurking around the "So you want to be an Animator? Here's what to expect" thread for a while and a couple of other threads.
I'm peruvian. (So pardon me for any grammar mistake) I want to be an animator. (That's original right?) 2D, 3D, I just... feel very intrigued towards every animated long or short film, tv show or whatever, comic books, graphic novels also. Watching and/or creating stories and characters with 3D animation or drawing, or stop motion (you choose it) it's mesmerizing for me.
I just want to do it. I know the risks, but I just feel like doing it. I can't imagine myself doing anything else and that I will feel this passionate about.
I have a plan (sort of). I'm going to start taking classes on Human Figure Drawing, learn to draw perspective and the basics of drawing. Really put all my effort into enhancing that skill.
Then taking a class about Animation. I believe Animation Mentor, since that is one were you can take online classes, and got positive feedback by a lot of users. After all that it's finding the job if the world it's not over by then.
I'm not here because I want tips (although some would be nice). But I just feel like talking about this with somebody, and my parents certainly don't understand this and any of my friends either. So, I would love to get some responses about what I plan to do.
Have no fear of perfection, you'll never reach it.
