Title says it all. I always wonder on how people got so interested in drawing/painting/whatever, so I thought of creating this topic to discuss about it; and since I’m the one who created this, I’ll go first:
I really got interested in art back in the 3rd/5th grade. The class that I had at that time had this “store” in the corner of the room where our teacher had all these types of toys/candies to buy with stickers as money.(Fun fact: This is where I bought some of the Bionicle comics; even some of the sets form early 2000) I had this weird idea of selling posters that I drew at the store, and she allowed it. Most of them were Sonic the Hedgehog (was a REALLY big fanboy at that time) but others were based on cartoons like Flapjack and others that I can’t seem to remember. A lot of my classmates enjoyed them and kind of sparked this idea that drawing is something that I’m good at; but one day, I knew for certain that I wanted to draw as my talent. I was bored in my room, having nothing to do. So, I looked for a movie to put on to ease my boredom, that movie being “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”. Instead of watching the movie, I looked around the “special features”, where I found this documentary-like video on the making of Snow White and the history of Walt Disney. I was amazed by the work and effort that was put into the movie and the history behind the Walt Disney Company; how the animation was made, how every single frame was made. It was amazing, and it imprinted the idea of improving my art skills and getting into animation.
