I want to study at the Art Students League because I want to become a better artist. I want to understand the fundamentals of anatomy and proportions of the human body, and this means learning from observational drawing. In the future, I want to become a game artist for concept art. By studying at the League, I feel like I will learn how to stylize the body to communicate different expressions for my characters. By changing the body language or flow of my characters, I can let viewers relate to the way my character is feeling, whether excited or happy.
“I hope to continue to push myself to learn more about the human form so I can bring a similar dynamism to my artwork.”
As an artist, I have been very influenced by Quinn Wilke because her artwork is filled with characters with stylized anatomy and an energetic flow. The expression of the characters she makes is unique and dynamic; you can really see the mood of each of her pieces. I hope to continue to push myself to learn more about the human form so I can bring a similar dynamism to my artwork.
