Hey guys..

Hey newgrounds.. just lettin you know i'm here, tryin out the new art system. :D

My name's Todd Rad.. i'm livin in San Fransisco right now studying to be an illustrator at the academy of art..

I used to be a 2d animator..

I used to animate when i was around 13 or 14ish.. and lost a lot of time 'cause of it.. so i ended up just doing a lot of still drawings in flash.. got myself a wacom, worked a bit from there, then mainly doing digital paintings and learned of how much i love it :D.. So time came that i had to head out to UNI.. and at that point was when i was like.. i'll get to do animation again which i havn't had time to do in the past, so i enrolled as a 2d animation major..
I was thinking that i would get a job as an animator and digi paint/draw/paint as my hobby..

.. i don't mean to brag.. but pretty much throughout the semester of my first digital animation class i was ranked at the top 2.. But whenever i would come home, i could not wait to get my animation hw over to start on a new digital painting..

Then on my second semester when i took traditional animation.. i was like woa this is gunna be cool.. and i was ranked pretty high, i think top 5.. in the first half.. and always.. i would spend minimal time animating.. and working on some kind of painting/drawing... and after that i realized, i am actually an illustrator and i started feeling slight hate over animation... every time i was assigned hw... i was like god damnit.. i hav to work on this.. but during my drawing classes i was excited bout goin home and workin on it.. so now i'm 18 turning 19 in aug.. and switched over to illustration and loving it so much :D

So what i'm saying is.. if you love something.. go for it.. and nothing else..

Cool, good luck with all your drawing and animation. Oh and with the sweet art skills you got you shouldn't have much trouble with becoming an illustrator.

Get some of your work printed, I would buy some of it.

trueWolF responds:

Well this is good news to hear :P thank you very much..

I would definitely love to make some monies off my work, but for now I'm still in that stage of life where I feel I need to keep improving on my work.

Anyone can do anything they want, all that's needed is practice/patience/determination. And you'll achieve anything.

Good luck, had the same experience when I got into Architecture. I Liked what I was learning but nothing came close my past experiences with 3d renderings/photography. Now I gave up in regular drafting and now specialize in 3d renderings of my projects.

Good job on your art. Keep it up!!! :)
