"Hello, My name is Yiran Pang. I am currently a senior studying Computer Animation at Ringling College of Art and Design. I started creating my own art when I was in high school. Then I realized how fantastic art is. When my pen touches the paper and leaves smooth lines on it, I feel peaceful. Even though I started creating art so late, I started watching animation when I was a child. Animation can be my best friend during my childhood. I can still remember the feeling when I watched Akira for the first time. Because of this animated film, I made a decision that affected my whole life. I want to be an animator. I want to see my own character living in my own world. I want people to laugh, cry, and be excited because of my work. Because of the influence of these talented artists, I was getting closer to my dream. It became more and more necessary to have some professional art education. My interest in 3D animation started with the game Overwatch. While the gameplay was what draw me into the game in the first place, their animated short films managed to blow me away every time with their design and production quality. I knew then that was something I want to create one day. Because of this, I applied to Ringling College's computer animation program as a first step towards realizing my dream. During my study at RCAD, I got a chance to learn something I have never known. 3D animation became something I really wanted to do. I learned more about 3D animation a visual development for animation. I realized what I was drawing before could not be considered as Visual Development. I started drawing with a more clear goal and thinking more about how to build the characters more. My instructor Paul Downs helped me a lot. He did not only help me with my animation but also with any other areas. He is the person who led me into the world of storyboarding. His story class introduced a whole new world for me. The method he used for teaching storytelling and animation is effective. I have more than one works were selected by Best of Ringling. Without Mr. Downs’s help, I could not have such achievements. I think RCAD helped me build great preparation for my career. Through completing many types of assignments during my four years at Ringling College of Art and Design, I enhanced my illustrating and Animating skills and developed advanced skills in Photoshop, Maya, Nuke, and Zbrush. All these things I have learned really helps me to become a better animator and VisDev artist. During these four years, I had many chances to meet with professional animators and learn from them. After graduation, I hope I can use these skills to start my career. I believe that my background and interest in animation and visual development have prepared me well for a position in animation industries."
