My name is Lida Smith, I am a 23 year old communication design here at New York City College of Technology. I aim for my bachelor’s degree in animation and illustration, and I am proficient in Photoshop and Illustrator. Other skills I am familiar with are adobe Dreamwaver, Indesign, and Autodesk Maya. My main focus is illustration and animation as shown in my portfolio, but I also do story-boarding, character design, and 3D Modeling. What I hope for after I graduate gain knowledge from professionals on the industry and hopefully use that to further advance on making comics and animations for my original series.
