Haha its really nice you will do well since portraits are pretty tough to do. You have talent Keep on practicing!
For me since it stopped i went back to study lol as usual and sometimes i do go back to see if there are anything but now no more of doing that. After my last year in secondary 4 or secondary school i went to a school to pursue animation haha
Hahah thats good! Yea but its okay probably we can make our own haha but just that we don't have the toys and the comics. Yea actually u can buy the book "Animators' Survival Kit" by richard williams and practice yourself haha
Oh ya theres a lot of resources i think u will like it ,and u will have time for drawing since they are not assignments.
