For many years, artists, animators, and script writers have collaborated in order to make and publish some of the cartoons, movies, and video games that is well known today. For me, I would animate for Walt Disney Studios and make children of all ages smile through my artwork. I would go to college to carefully study animation, continue to practice on my weak areas of drawing, and I would help other aspiring artists understand the animation field better.

Also, In order to make this dream into a reality, I would surround myself with people who drew better than me and hone my techniques in order to apply them to my work. I would also have people critique my work in order to improve. Over time, I will be able to apply what I have learned to my future creations and pieces. My weak areas is what I would focus on the line work and the shading of some areas to make my pieces better than I draw them. Tutoring would be used in order to help me improve and I would host sessions of myself explaining the field of animation to those aspiring artists. Drawing and Animating tutorials would be hosted for additional hands-on experiences.

Lastly, I would apply for internships to work at Walt Disney Studios to apply what I already know to animating. Through animating, I would teach a lot of people how to be open minded, how to think critically, and how to work together in order to get a project finished. It would take a few years, but in the end it would be worth it.
