Hey, I am Jenna-Mae Wilson from Albert Mines, New Brunswick, but I am not currently in Moncton. I am a former Animation and Graphics student from NBCC Miramichi, but I did not graduate due to the fact that I needed to take a break because I had to get better control over my anxiety and depression, plus I had to take care of my hands, wrists, and elbows because I have arthritis, carpel tunnel, and tendinitis. Having all of that is a huge pain in the rear.
At the moment, I am not in the industry, but I am in the process of putting together a portfolio. I want to become a character designer for either shows, or video games. I enjoy doing animations, but I don’t have the equipment, nor the programs to do get any practice.
My inspiration for wanting to get into the Animation industry, or anywhere in art is because of Disney movies. I guess that is what I get for becoming so obsessed with Disney at such a young age, which was at the age of three. All I did from then on was watch movies over and over and over again. I was so fascinated over the fact that animated movies were all done by individual drawings, so when I was old enough to pick up a pencil, and I did from then on was draw, draw, and draw some more.
My day as an artist varies from time to time. It depends on my work schedule since I work at Tim Hortons till I can managed to squeeze my way into a job in the art field. It also depends on how productive I feel, and how motivated I am.
This morning when I woke up, I did not feel motivated at all for some reason, so I started my day off with some breakfast, and some shows that I needed to catch up on.
Breakfast and watching @midnight
After catching up on some shows, I tried to sit down to do some drawings, and hopefully work on some of the characters that I have been working on for my portfolio.
This is one of of the characters that I have been working on. Her name is Heidi, who is a high school student, and a huge nerd. I didn’t manage to get any sketches done of her, but I did manage to get some sketches of another character, who is named Santina.
I swear every time I draw something, the style always changes. One of the difficulties that I have when it comes to drawing, is keeping a character in the same style as the previous drawing.
After I got some drawings down, I decided to take a break since my mother called me, and I ended up talking to my cats because I heard them in them meowing in the background, which is all they do. They are VERY vocal.
Yes, I talk to my cats on the phone, and yes they do respond to me when I ask them questions.
I would have talked to my two cats, Milo and Souk, but they are outside cats, and I think that they forgot how to meow.
IT’S LUNCHTIME NOW!!!!!!
It looks better then it tasted….
Once I got food into my system, I thought that it was time for me to go back to working on drawings, but this time I was in the mood to draw fan art for some odd reason. I’ve seen a lot of art where people draw Disney Princesses, and put them into the villain’s outfit, so I decided to give it a try.
I started off with Ariel because at the time I had Poor Unfortunate Souls stuck in my head. I ALWAYS have Disney songs stuck in my head. I am eventually going to color this digitally, and add it to my collection that includes
Besides not getting much drawing done all day, I took the time to put together some earrings with the supplies that I got off of eBay. I am planing on making more earrings, and sell them, as well as drawings I do for people on Fiverr, as well as commissions for whoever gets one from me, so I can save up money to go to England because I have a friend over there that I have been talking to for eleven years, and I want to meet him. I am also going to one of the bigger Anime conventions that is held up there.
The rest of my day was not all that interesting seems how I had to go to work! All I have to say is that even though I am now an adult, I am defiantly not no grown up!!
