Art Conversation with a Buddy
I will talk with you about art! I love talking about art, and I enjoy sharing my love for art with others. Art classes are 20% learning technique, 30% giving and receiving critique, and 50% using your skills. I've had lots of schooling, but I can never get enough conversation and critique with other artists.
We can brainstorm art ideas for things to make.
You can ask me about what I'm currently working on. I just opened an etsy shop!
We can talk about the Elements and Principles of Design, the Golden Rule, the 12 Principles of Animation. They aren't as scary nor as strict as they sound.
We can talk about Inktober and/or Drawloween. They're both daily drawing commitments for the month of October.
I can coach you with ideas for how to get better or exercises specifically about a thing that you need help with along with follow up conversations if you'd like critique on an exercise you finished.
This is totally informal and you don't have to have a goal in mind when you contact me. I'm happy to talk about art any time. :)
Training & Qualifications
I took a couple years of art history in college, and I have a bachelor's degree in computer animation. I've also taught animation for a couple years.
I kept doing art after my 3rd grade teacher told me I was terrible. I won a class art competition the same year that happened with an unrelated artwork. They're not all gonna be winners, and no single failure defines an artist. Keep making things and surround yourself with people that are encouraging and share your love for creative pursuits.

About Melissa Baldwin
I'm passionate about making things. I'm an artist. I sculpt, sew, draw, graphic design, paint, and animate. Drawing is number one. I'm always drawing and I expect to draw for the rest of my life. My s...tyle is flexible, but I love cute stuff! My style shifts over time, but artists seem to eternally strive to be better. I recently started an online storefront for my artwork. I'm really excited to start sharing my work with a wider audience. I grew up as an army brat, so I have lived in a million places. People can be different from place to place, but what we want from life is the same; a happy home life, good health, and to feel appreciated for our efforts. Diversity and being different is invaluable. The way educated and worldly people are different is that experiencing other cultures isn't just on a screen, it's the norm. I'm half-Filipino and half-English. I think that's why I drink a lot of tea and enjoy being near the ocean. I'm interested in Japanese language and Kawaii lifestyle. My goal is to fill my world with cute! show moreOpen to other proposals
