“When I was in elementary school, I really liked arts class. It was precious class for me, and my teacher was always encouraging me to draw. I kept drawing until 2015, and then discovered a new way of drawing through watching TV, and that was 3D drawing. I started watching teaching videos of 3D drawing because I wanted to learn something that was rare in our area. I was the first person to draw 3D paintings in our area, and that made me to try even more. I wasn’t successful in the beginning, but I kept trying. I participated in a gallery, but my drawings were not good enough to attract people’s attention because my paintings have to be on a table, not on a wall, and if they are hanged on a wall, they’ll lose their specialty. I was really upset about it, but my family helped me to get through it, and to succeed. I now study to be an architect in Qortoba university, and knowing how to draw 3D paintings have helped me a lot because architecture and 3D painting are related”.
