From 5pm fri to 5pm sat, me and group of 4 other incredibly talented girls animated a a 30 sec film for the 24 hour animation contest. The theme was a quote from animal farm; “all animals are equal, but some are more equal than others”. This is the first year that my school (Cal State Fullerton) has participated. Due to technical errors we didn’t know that our submission hadn’t gone through until an hour after the deadline. I’m kinda disappointed since I’m very proud of our teamwork and what we accomplished in 24 hours, but I understand that deadlines are very important in the animation industry. Our teachers were also very supportive and worked with us to make this happen. So next year we’re coming for the gold and you can count on that!!!

This was my team’s entry for the 24 Hour Animation Contest! Despite not placing, I still think we did an awesome job! :D
A huuuuge thanks to Emily Oeztell for inviting me to join in the first place, she basically did a little bit of everything and did an amazing job at making sure everything flowed together and that we stayed on schedule. Alicia Chan and Angela Zhang acted as the lead animators and they were so awesome, the animation really came together so well! And Kelsey Suan drew all of the beautiful backgrounds, we were all blown away by what a gorgeous job she did.

So the ONLY thing my sister has ever wanted me to draw was Legend of Zelda art, aaaaand it pretty much took me three years to get around to it haha… Much of my middle/high school summers were spent watching her play and being terrified of skull kids/ReDeads/Ganon/moon/LITERALLY EVERYTHING.

Anonymous said: Who are your favorite artists that inspire you the most?
Oh man this is so hard to answer, there’s A LOT of great artists that I really admire. These guys are not only amazing at drawing, but they are also just genuinely sweet and really great people who I appreciate so much. I kept this down to just 16 artists though to keep it from getting way too long, please know that I do follow several hundred others who I equally respect!
Eli and Oli Ceballos
Please check out their work! They’re probably the nicest people I’ve ever met online, I’ve been following most these guys for quite a bit and it’s just been awesome to see their art grow!! :)

Anonymous said: Hello, I has a question about your watercolor sketches you posted, what kind of pen did you use? The pens I have all run when I try to paint over them, or do you just pen over the watercolor when it dries?
Hello! I use micron pens and then paint over the ink, I’ve never had any problems with them messing up the drawing!

I kept this in my inbox because I didn’t know how to respond, but please know that your words mean so much to me! I feel like I’ve been in such a weird art rut and you just absolutely made me feel so much better. Anon, my last batch of drawings was dedicated just to you!!! :)
