YOU'RE NEVER TOO YOUNG TO MAKE MONSTERS

Meet 15-year old prodigy artist Emka Klučovská aka "Ema", from Slovakia. She draws in pencil, airbrushes cars, sculpts digital creatures in ZBrush, Photoshop's monsters with big teeth... and she’s even a FALCONER!

That’s right, her best friend is a bird almost as large as she is…
 
Thank you Emka. Your passion for the arts and making monsters has taught us all a valuable lesson to “Never give up!"
 
We hope you all will be as inspired by Emka's story as we all are.

IN EMKA'S OWN WORDS

"Hello, my name is Emka, I’m 15 years old."

Pictured above: Emka Klučovská works on a portrait of an owl using her digital drawing table.

"I live in Slovakia and I draw monsters and creatures with sharp teeth."

"I’m also a Falconer."

Pictured above: Emka poses with her falcon. Her love of birds was the early inspiration for her drawings.

"When I was two years old, I started drawing birds."

"And I then I saw an Alien movie and drew something, not a bird, but it had sharp teeth and blood. My parents were like 'Oh, my goodness!'"

Pictured above: Emka moves from birds to aliens. 

"Here it is. My first Alien."

"My dream is to become a professional designer of characters for movies."

"I really love Robert Downey Jr., and I really love the Iron Man movies."

"But I do not study at Arts School. In my country, I don’t have opportunity. I’m just watching tutorials and almost everyday I visit an animation studio where I have a teacher who teaches me how to draw and how to animate."
