Hi everybody !
My name is Clémence, I'm 18 and I am a Frenchie :)
Who am I ? What are my goals ?
No surprise, my ultimate goal is to fulfill my dream of working in the animation industry because it is my "raison d'être". I'd like to work on all kind of film, everywhere in the world, from small to big studios...I am open to everything!
I want to enter the Gobelins animation school in Paris since I am young even if it's hard to. I want to prove myself I can do it!
However it is a very difficult task considering that I don't have enough money to pay prepatory classes ...
and I live in the deep countryside, making it even more difficult to find things such as art store and figure drawing classes !
But no matter, I rely on passion and motivation :)
For the moment I am studying Multimedia at university (because it's free yeah. And I love learning no matter what, so I am not losing my time).
I must learn drawing and anything else that animation schools require by myself, with the help of books and Internet (the holy grail). In addition I have 3h of figure drawing per week since september, but can't pay for more weekly hours unfortunatly.
what challenges am I facing ?
SO MANY. The biggest one is the fact that I am alone in practising drawing, and on a long term it can be frustrating.
I need support. That is why I came here!
I would appreciate so much to talk with other passionate, to have others views on what I am doing but also looking at others' works.
Entering a community would be a big step forward for me. So..here I am!

I think I said it all... (sorry in advance if some of my sentences sound weird...English is not my native language as you might have guess ahah)
Thanks for reading !
