I've wanted to draw Jim again for a long time, but I thought I'm still not good enough for it, and I'm really surprised how well he came out. Besides, I had a motivation, I watched 'Treasure Planet' for, I dunno, how many thousand times, the other day, and again I felt so 'at-home', you know. It is a man,who changed my life. I'm absolutely serious. And now I'm going to write you a revelation, sort of, like.. why he's so freaking important to me.
I remember that day. haha. Well, I was a 12-year-old kid, downloading some cartoons from torrent. And when I was done, I checked this one out, what was is it in general, because I've never ever known about its existence. And unexpectedly, I figured out that this cartoon was in English. It was an accident, because I've been watching everything in my native language those times, I have no idea how it could've happened. I watched it for several minutes, and then shelved it. I strongly fell in love with this language exactly that day, I liked how it sounded, everything, but I was not good enough to understand what was is about. So, you know, mentally I began to improve in English, I was not bad in it earlier, but it was really not enough. And then, I don't know how, but two or three years later I opened this file and watched. That was marvellous. I saw myself in Jim, let's be clear. I was a capable child, but I launched studies, I was walking and riding a bike and rollerblading all the time, I was interested in completely different things, well, there were chidren, who were much worse that me, but still. I had the same character, and we were very close in general: despite our 'darkness depression' or 'launching everything we're not interested', we were always keen on the things we loved most. I've dreamed of having an adventure, of somebody, who'll make me feel special, who can make me believe in myself and help me to know where I belong. I really need it. I'm still dreaming. So, I got stuck here. Then I saw in the Net that a huge amout of people invented their 'ocs' for Jim. And I was like: 'What?'. And one beautiful night I had a dream, where there was a movie 'Treasure Planet II'. I'm not kidding, everything I was working on the first years of being here was this dream, as you may say. So, I created Mary, and then I decided to show that I've got my own character for Jim too, and then I saw one the very famous OC for him, and felt a bit like in a fight, so I found out this amazing site, DeviantArt, and since the 9th of January 2012 I've been here. I always think about this day with some warmth. So, you see, I began drawing every single day, so there should've been some result.. And you can see my improvement now. Here's the first drawing of them I submited here:First Love with Mary and Jim
. Nice, huh?
Then there was a period in my life, sort of an adventure. I was finishing school, and to get into the University I had to pass very difficult exams, so I did and I finished school with a golden medal, which means that I'm an A student in all subjects. I felt like Jim did in the end of the movie. And now I've got one more aim, which is connected with my studies (there're more ofthem, which are connected with art and animation). I really want to graduate from my University with 'the red diploma', beeing an A student again, but I do doubt that, 'coz it's really SO hard to study here, some of the subjects and professors make me an angry vampire, they make me suffer.
So, as a conclusion, James Hawkins made me who I am right now. I'm future linguist and translator, I'm a student, I would've never chosen this way if he didn't blow into my life in the right time. And I started 'always' drawing because of him, and I would've never been able to draw as I do now, if there was no him. So, thank you Disney, thank you 'Trasure Planet'.
P.S. That's why I am 'maryandjim', by the way))
