About Me - Long Winded Version

Hi! My name’s Matilda Sim. I’m just your typical weirdo artist slacker gal who also happens to be the person who created this site on how to draw cartoon characters.

How I started:

I started really drawing when I was 14 I suppose. I’m one of those people who got inspired by Anime and Manga. (D.N. Angel specifically. The artwork is beautiful.)

When I first started drawing... O gosh. I think I’ll make an entire video just to show you how horrid my drawings were. I kept almost all my artwork from my early days. I like to flip through them and cringe whenever I’m in a slum. ^_^”

The only reason why I managed to pull through my horrid beginnings was thanks to a very talented friend of mine... whose name I forgot. (Wow, that’s gratitude for you.) Anyway, he was the one who taught me how to draw. Starting from guidelines to sketches to the finished product. In all honesty, I would never be where I am without his guidance.

And my cartoon drawing guide was created...

Over the past few years, I’ve met plenty of people who say: I can’t draw. I don’t have the talent for it. *Looks at certain friends and family members* Guess what? Talent does not count when you have the passion!

As long as you’re willing to practise and put in the time and energy into drawing, then Anyone can Draw.

Here’s where I come in. I hope that through the various tutorials in the site, I’ll be able to inspire and guide you out of your slumps. Just like how I’ve been guided. If you’re having problems, you can always post them up in the Cartoon Clinic and I’ll help you out personally.

So don’t get demoralised when art pieces don’t go your way. Remember to keep drawing and practising because someday, you will definitely succeed!
