In the words of the amazing Cree Summer, A.K.A, the woman who plays basically any token Black girl in every cartoon, "People think Black girls don't watch cartoons; people think Black people can't be nerds," Well, honey, I'm here to tell y'all that we can be.
My name is Kristyn Stallings and I'm a Freshman animation major from Chicago, Illinois. I'd love to work for Disney or Cartoon Network in the future, and eventually, create my own shows, but for now, I'm cool with making great art on my own and for projects. Hey, we all have to start somewhere right?
Outside of art, I love to dance (though I'm not very good at it), write (I'd say I'm pretty good at it) and play video games (my talent depends on the game). I also love to watch cartoons but I think you could figure that out on your own. My goal is to improve my art and storytelling skills so that I can tell my own stories in the future as an animator.
As the name suggests, it was a play on the contrast between warm and cool colors, sticking primarily with analogous red tones. As for the woman depicted, I don't really know who she is, but I wanted her to have a 1920's jazz feel.
Here, I was practicing with environmental art as it's something I'm not very familiar with. As it was just practice, there wasn't much inspiration behind it besides the desire to draw sand dunes, but I was drawn to an orange and pink palette for it.
