*EXTREMELY* Old drawings!

Mon May 7, 2012, 2:39 PM

VERY old drawings

I removed all of the old drawings because they... are ugly and I didn't want them on my front page forever LOL. but this still exists:

And the rest is history :)
So don't give up hope guys. Whether you're 10, 15, 20, or older, as long as you keep at it, you WILL improve. Look at anatomy books and proper reference, that's something I wish I did more of when I was little. But you guys have SO many resources now! And computer programs galore. I really didn't have the internet at all for 1/5th of my artistic life, and then another 1/5th I just stopped drawing because I gave up. So take use of those resources, look at tutorials on Deviantart, and keep practicing. And mimicry is okay. Just try and branch out and create your own individual style once you get the hang of things!
Good luck everyone :heart: I still have a long way to go, too. :D


More info coming soon.

It's always so fun to look back at your old drawings, even me who... well I'm not amazing, and I've definitely improved a lot since I was younger, but I love looking at my old drawings and seeing how I've improved, I can't wait to look at the pics I draw now and look back at them ten years from now and be like... dear god xD

Lol just realized you posted the "icecream beauties" pic twice :3

... and yes I also learned to draw from Katy Coope... she might not have been a very good teacher but she certainly did help a lot of people get their start! :D

given your art now, it was indeed rather amusing to see your older work.

Just goes to show, everybody starts somewhere, even the greats!
