OK so I can't and won't attend college since I can't financial aid ( I actually can't receive it because my mom has irs problems)
So..I;m learning everything ( I hope) from deviantart and conceptart) and youtube.
I also read info and learn from other websites like cartoonbrew, here, and some other animation blog.
I want to, like millions of others, want there own tv show and want to be the next big thing. I want to be able to produce 2d animation.
I also am interested in scriptwriting for animation and music for animation.( By the way do I need a degree for those last two?)
SO..I have also books that I'm using to learn two and I'm going to list them and I'm asking what other books should I get?
-Writing for animation
-Illusion of Life
-Plot and Structure
-Anatomy made amazingly easy
-From Pitch to Production
-Mastering Manga with Mark Criley ( Just for a different style and perspective)
-Timing for animation
-The new drawing from the right side of the brain
Also, do I need to buy a tablet even though I'm not at a very experienced level yet?
Where would I be able to find a mentor?
