Artist | Student | Varied
so hello, im Maria. i am a christian, student artist at my highschool, and have become rather partal to simply using my pencil, and ocasionaly pastels. i think color is seriously over rated, to be blunt. a back and white or pencil peice can be just as, and sometimes even more effective than a color one.
i've began experementing with acrilics, and do enjoy doing murals on my walls, ceiling, ect. but as far as a career, i think i'd like to go for more... finished consept design. i love to just make and design characters. i would absoloutly love for someone to give me a personality and general run down of their ideas, and create something out of that!
so i would like to go into that for video game characters, but ive also thought about story board, voice acting, or simply an acting career, so imm not quite decided yet.
with any of these careers though, i am worried about my faith. i want to keep Christ first in my life no matter what, and in a career in the arts, my faith could verry well be challenged. im also a bit concerned about my emotional exposure. all of my peices are verry personal, and expresive. with art, im able to vent all my emotions, and not have to go into the nitty gritty details and painful memories- just get it out on paper and have someone elce interpert it. with an acting career, im not able to do that as well. i pour myself out, and have before, just with our highschool programs, burst into tears on the stage. it does do more for the character, but afterwards im often asked to explain the suden out bursts, and "just acting" doesnt usualy do the tick, as you have to go from personal experiences to portray a character effectivly.
so as far as specalty and career choice, im undecided. but i know that at all costs i have to keep Christ first in my life, and will simply continue to follow him on whichever path he leads me. ^^
