A word with Anamaris
What is your field, and how did you get in?
I've always loved anything that involves creating with my hands. While studying Image and Design I decided to take a basic animation class. It hit me, I had found my passion. I flew out to study 3D animation at Full Sail.
Where do you want your Journey to lead you?
I would love to be able to work at an animation studio somewhere. Canada was my first option, having seen so many great studios over there. Right now though, I'm focusing on my trip to China. Who knows where life will take me from there.
What would you like to achieve within the next year?
I'd love to get to a level that I'm happy with. Though, now that I think about it I don't any artist ever gets to that level. We're our own worst critics. But seriously though, digital painting. I'd love to get to a professional level.
So far, how have you been developing your skills?
I'm currently working as an Illustrator, and do around three pieces a day, more or less. Been trying to make time outside of work to do figure and gesture drawings, lots of sketches mostly.
Where does your motivation come from?
Other artists. I always get really pumped when I see inspiring art. Being surrounded by others that share the same passion is really motivating as well.
Where do you go when you seek inspiration?
I visit sites like Deviantart or Tumblr. I love CG Society as well, but I gotta say this place is equally amazing.
What are some of your favorite artists and genres?
Artists I've found around deviantart, like Kimberly Swan, Julie Dillion, Bloochikin and so on.
What are some of your favorite writers and books?
I was a huge fan on the Magic the Gathering series. I was very sad when they stopped making the the fat-packs with the novels.
What do you listen to?
My music tastes are ever-changing, but right now lots of Spoon, Pendulum, Tegan and Sarah, Sia, The Fratellis, Franz Ferdinadz and so on...
What is your favorite website?
I can't choose one! I usually frequent, Deviantart, Tumblr, used to be a Gaiaonline nut. Facebook I use only for the games. Those addictive little games...
