  • Hey,Andrei! I dont know if you will notice this comment since this is an really....Im from Moldova! Since you're from Romania you know where this is ._. Im 12 yers old and my dream is being an animator on youtube.I started working hard and i started practiceing for this dream! All my art suplies are my best 6 pencils HB,B,...Etc, and my 7 supreme markers that i bought on my own from my poket money. Now me and my friends since hellowin is comming we are going to open a mini caffe in our set of block of flats,so we are gong to get paid plus we are going to do some delivery service too, since i spend all the money that i gathered since Christmas on a Undertale collectors edition.Not gonna lie i dont feel guilty for doing it cuz i really like the game and its really fun and the golden necklace its beautifull UwU.The point is that now i try to get money for more art supllies i can say im full of DETERMINATION for getting to be an animator.I wanted to say thank you for this tips. I have an art account on instagram here it is if you are intersted : @cadauna_art . have a nice day! Mersi mult Andrei! o zi frumoasa! OwO
