*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.

Heeey I remember IceCream Beauties, haha. I used to read that. Oh, the nostalgia. xD I should look back on my old drawings one of these days too, I rarely do because they're just so hideous. xDDD

That's pretty nice that you're looking back at your old drawings. Sometime I look back at my old drawings and I say to myself, "Wow, I can't believe I used to draw like that! I've really been improving." I'm still improving because there's alot I need to work on, but I won't give up because I love to draw and I wanna keep going.
Oh and BTW, you keep up with the great work, Ocean!!:iconranranruuplz:

I love these <33 Makes me so nostalgic looking at them for some reason (maybe it's because I learnt how to draw manga from Katy Coope too!) Thank you for sharing~ You were always talented.
