Anime Artist: Lena Uchiha

Happy Monday and welcome back to The Wonder And Worry. Today we have seventeen year-old Lena Uchiha contributing to our Creative Energy series. Lena has a particular passion - anime aka Japanese style animation. I first fell in love with anime years ago,watching Dragon Ball Z. It's a style that is growing in popularity within the U.S. with films like Ponyo, Spirited Away, and The Secret World of Arrietty. If you haven't experienced anime, you should check it out. Here's Lena's message for you:


I really love to draw. It has been my passion ever since I was little. When I was in 3rd grade I started drawing anime because I saw my friend drawing it and I really loved the eyes, so I started to copy all different kinds of anime art until I found my own style. I feel like I draw better traditionally, but I really love to draw digital because the coloring always looks so clean. I am inspired by many different things, when I see a picture on the internet that I love I will be inspired to draw and get better to make my art look even better! I am also inspired by my animals and my stuffed animals. Every time I get a new stuffed animal or pet I want to draw them and make them a new OC, like my drawing of Haku, she is one of my pet albino rats. I'd like to say to other artists is that there is no such thing as a bad artist. If you're just beginning, you aren't bad, you just have room to improve! If you keep on drawing, you'll get much better. Everyone has potential and no one is a bad artist!












Thanks to Lena for sharing her work with us.I love the look of anime, the big eyes and vibrant colors. There's often a magical feel to it that I find really beautiful. For your enjoyment, I've added a few videos below. Have a great day everyone!

  1. Uhm, the pictures aren't showing up??
    Is that normal, or have you not completed it, or is my computer just glitching out??

  2. Ahhh! So sorry the pictures haven't been up today. They were showing fine on my computer. Strange. Anyway, thanks to those that contacted me to let me know of the error. I reloaded the pics so they should be showing now. If not, let me know. Otherwise, enjoy the amazing work of Miss Lena!
