Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hello, my name is Ronald. I’m very young (13 years old) I really like drawing, and that’s what I am mostly known for. I really like pixel art and that’s the type of art that I mostly share in social media platforms such as Twitter, Discord, etc.
What Inspires You Every day? : To begin with, my art is inspired by my twin brother’s art. I’ve seen him share tons of pixel drawings on different types of social media platforms. When I saw what he was capable of, I was inspired by him. I started making pixel drawings, but there was one problem, my drawings weren’t as good as his. I began to observe what he was doing, I watched a lot of anime and cartoons that could help me with the shading, and honestly that’s why the shading on my drawings are so good nowadays. I started off by drawing simple things like Pokémon, Fortnite characters, items, stuff like that. And gotta admit, those drawings went pretty well. That’s what inspires me, his art, when I see him drawing, something tells me to keep going and to never stop drawing.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: I’ve heard many wisdom quotes in the past, most of them I don’t remember them. But the one that I’m most familiar with, is one that says “Respect isn’t something you get, you have to earn it”.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : I want to get into a good high school, a good college, and to become a popular artist. I want to share my art with the world and probably even publish some books about myself and write about my experience.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : I’ve been alright, although it has affected me in various ways. 1st, I have to maintain 6 feet away from everyone. I know it’s safe, but I just really don’t like having to stay 6 feet away from everyone. 2nd, wearing a mask. I really don’t like wearing a mask over my nose, I can barely breathe! 3rd, the spread of COVID-19. I really don’t want a random person with the virus to walk up to me and cough on me, maybe sneeze on me too, I really don’t want to get the virus because there’s no telling if I’ll survive.
What is a message you would like to give others? : If there was one message I’d like to share with others, it’s that you should follow your dream no matter how bad things can get. Everyone has a goal in life, right? To accomplish it, you have to overcome any obstacle that comes in your way.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: I’d like to say a few things about myself, I am interested in games, I really like animals and I have a curious mind, and there’s something I really wanted to say. I’m very grateful for everyone who has helped me in the past, and that have helped me get to where I am now.
