My name is Luísa Furukawa and I'm from Brazil I want to do an early apology for my english, hope not to do any big mistakes
So, I didn't know I had to do an introduction, I was reading the topics for some days and then I realized that I have to do this!
Like I said before, I'm from Brazil, married (and my husband is an artist too!) and I've been drawing since I was little. I always loved manga, anime, animation, but I never knew what I really wanted to do for life. I'm still trying to find out.
I liked to draw stories, comics, do concept of my characters, but here in Brazil don't have colleges for this. If I want a education with a bit of illustration and animation I have to study Graphic Design or Fine Arts.
And...I never went to college, I studied by myself and my husband that did Fine Arts teaches me too.
My husband works with animation and I loved the making of it, specially storyboards and I worked with it for some time, but I feel like it's missing something. I love storyboards, but for 2D animation series I can't be more creative with compositions because of the budget.
And then, I tried to study more about illustration and concept art. I have a dear friend called Kami who showed me SVS and the 3rd Thursdays Contest. I loved the hangout, learned so much and I will participate more this year
This is my facebook page with my husband:
And this is my old tumblr with some works too:
Nice to meet you all
