I Don’t Want To Hide Anymore
Story and artwork from Sarah Salinas
I’m a college freshman currently majoring in animation. Art has always been a part of my life every since the second grade where I’d have 3 composition books filled with comics, inspired by the “asdfmovies” by TomSka. Even now I see art in everything and how Nature has made such a beautiful work of art in life.
There are many challenges I have in art, sometimes I have blocks where I don’t know what to draw and that tempts me into looking for inspiration when there’s pure inspiration inside my head that just needs to be unlocked. I want to learn how to draw from my imagination effortlessly, to make whatever I think of come to life on paper, to be able to make things look realistic or unrealistic and have a clear, pure understanding of art. I think Drawing Academy can make what I want to learn come true. Everything it offers just speaks to me and I want to be able to take full advantage of that.
I want to win the Drawing Academy course because it will help me get better in drawing and perhaps expressing my emotion in my works of art and I can make art that people will like and potentially even want. Art that defines who I am, that’s expressed in my own terms, but is made so well and has much life to it.
People should vote for me because I dedicate my life to art. Being an animation major means I must learn how to draw. I do know how to do some things but I want to know everything in terms of anatomy and drawing anything. I’m not going to give up trying, and my artwork will always have a meaning to others even though it might not be the same meaning I had for it.
