I like drawing pictures so it was fun to learn painting using software. Programming was little hard for me but it was very interesting because I could animate my drawings. I would like to make a game someday.
  • My favorite part : Drawing and coloring with the computer!

  • My next goal : I want to make program the ability to avoid obstacles with a jump
