Improvement Meme ?? by blargberries Improvement Meme ?? by blargberries
-

blank version is HERE -> [link]

I think it's too early to make this... but I'm deleting some stuff so yh

and omfg I almost choked seeing the old drawings it's SO GROSS
there was also probably about 5 sketchbooks between each year but they're like up in an attic somewhere and no shits am i scanning anything
also I was gunna include shite from 2006/7 but you'd guys just LAUGH also they were all on 'bebo' at the time so idk if they exist any more or not

2012's summary was not a good summary
I'd say I've done more drawings this year than I've done in the entirety of my dA existence and it still doesn't feel worth while.
guh
I regret doing this

Wow, this is amazing!
I love improvement memes, they're so inspiring.
I considered doing one myself but I haven't improved in years and I don't want someone to point it out. XD

HEY
Don't say that! Everyone improves, sometimes at different rates, but it's there. I drew non stop in high school and at home so I guess that's why I kinda changed a bit at 15. Our professor's tell us the only difference between an amateur and a professional illustrator is 10,000 drawings. :I
And thanks! ^^

Well You know what they say: Practice makes perfect! And everyone has their own style :P. Practicing your own style is what Really helps you improve and to me experimenting will do wonders! Your style is awesome and I can only hope to get as good as you :3

Congrats on your improvement!!

P.S. Don't regret doing this. It actually gives an amtuer drawer like me some hope ("Someday I'll actually draw something that doesn't look too crappy...Someday.").

Thank you!

And I'm glad! When I was just starting out I used to watch all these magnificent artist's doing these impossible things and even now I cry and think I'm never going to be able to draw as nice as that but it's all learning and trying and getting better at your own pace c:

It's funny you say that because I'm in that same perdicerment. I look at all these artists and their awesome work and I'm like "who did they sell their soul to and where can I find him?" But I know in the long run, I just have to be patient and persistent and when I look back at all this from the future, I'll probably laugh my ass off.

Ahahah yeah xD
I think it was because when I did art in high school my teacher was just really really good to me. Like she was totally supportive but gave me a doing on my anatomy and stuff, I shamelessly used to show her all of this stuff and she just kinda honed the skill for me.
LOL NO YOU TOTALLY WILL ;DD just like my advice is reference everything and watch as many tutorials as possible if you don't have art classes c:

It really isn't dead XD my back up email address proved that me when it says "So and so as add you as a friend on Bebo" .. xD;

Doesn't matter how bad it looks because I really love it ;w; ...
As soppy and mushy as this sound, that very doodle you did me inspired me to draw and I've always looked up to you because of it c: I feel kinnda saddened that you're taking down images that have long inspired me ;w; ..

Ah, I have the drawing of that halloween image on my wardrobe still XD But my Akatsuki cloak is hung over the door so I can't see it DD: I've got a few of your images dotted around my room including that A2 poster of MattMello you did me for my 17th Birthday OwO

I'm only be anti-social because I'm VERY easily distracted online and I've got a to-do list to work on and talking to others is slowing me down big time XD I fail at life :iconlazycryplz: I'm meant to be sketching right now but I'm chillin' with ma milky coffee and ma cherry bakewell tart ~ Mhm <33 Put off from doing it because I have to draw a female character ... :stare: I usually make them look like guys :dummy:

Sweet mother of...I've wrote an essay.

Oh sweetheart ;W; you do realise you did the same for me right, like you always so positive and nice and oh gosh anyone could have said 'ew what are you doing stop' but you've always like been there being supportive and for that it's probably the biggest inspiration I've had ♥

omhygod your 17TH? jeekers :L i still have every single drawing you've sent me ;U;

ooooo ~
LOL I LEGIT SNORTED I can't wait to see you draw a female character >: D I'm not sure I can remember the last time you did one... :L

Lol ohreally. I just get carried away, I can't help it :p

I don't even know my password to my Roleplay bebo or my personal one lol ... Unloved, unwated, just forgotten ~

I did? :iconshyblushplz:
I never thought about it because you were always so much better, I mean we should compare our oldest doodles, mines AWFUL and very deformed XD Yours was so cute ;w; Still, I find it hard to believe I inspired you XD I'm a terrible artist, I've not had lessons either so I probably won't get better :p But you, you've improved so much c: It's always been nice to look at how far you've come considering how far back I've seen your art :meow: But I'll always love your art, I don't have a reason not to ^^ Not one and because you've been what I'd consider a dear friend over the years, you'll always have my support

Yes, my 17th :XD: Where do the years go c':
You should burn my old art >w> None of it's original xD; Well a few were but very little :p I wish I could draw something better for you O^O I just hate the thought of that thrash I mailed you ;~; ...


Hey XD I've drawn females before miss, I just don't do it very well. I recently did technically draw a female -> [link] (Lol, honestly you don't have to view it) The girl was flat chested and a were rabbit haha XD)
It's usually the damn bust and face shape that gets me :I Too used to drawing males u.u Because they're much broader and stuff, it comes more second nature to me ~

I swear these messages are getting longer >w>

Oh god baby you're going to make CRYY ; A ;
And don't say that, jesus the stuff I've seen you put up now has improved QUANTUM'S. Like amazingly for someone who is self taught as well ; A ;

I WILL BURN NONE OF IT.
I love all of it, like so dearly because you took time and drew it for me and gOSH IT MEANS SO MUCH

Ohhhh! You're colouring is so pretty and shiny oUo
And I know what you mean. Guys are just easier for me too :I Girls are all curves and softness I can't HANDLE IT.

this is what happens we go off in 7 different tangents and the message just gets LONGER AND LONGER those letters went up to like 7 pages ;;;;

Nope, lol. Just wish I'd stop getting emails off it :stare: ...

Aha, you sound as soft I as do :'D Seriously, I get emotional at times like these ;~; .. I'm just one big bag of fluffy emotions o u o ..
Nyeh, I may improve but I'll always sucks because it's too late to learn and I can't seem to find any classes .. :c I know what I do because I just picked it up over time :/
If I could get anatomy right, I wouldn't even care about my colouring but I can't do it!! >n< ... :iconsulkplz:

Are you sure you don't want to change your mind? OnO I never even spent more that 2 hours on any of the images I drew you D: I feel terrible about it after you sent me such lovely images ;~; honestly, they look like they had more effort in it, especially one of the A3 sized one you sent me, it's background looks like it took a while x3
I'd draw you something new but I think I'd fail at it so badly since I'm pretty sure you once told me your fussy on some things you like.. :iconsweatdropplz:

Lol shiny xD; I took a big liking to adding shine to images, I guess I sort of just liked that effort ^^; My colouring is getting better but I still don't understand how it works .. x3 I don't know how you lot do it D: I change the brush settings and what not to see if I get them to blend better and overlay colours in different layers for different shades but it just..baffles me :s
Girl's anatomy ...urgh XD Just why are we designed this way >:I I'm so curve around my hips that I'd even come close being able to a drawing of myself, it's the same with the bust, I mean why god, why?! These things are a pain to live with and even worse draw... D:< Flat chested woman are awesome ... u.u;

YES XD Our letters, they'd go on for pages, I'd spend an hour trying to get through it lolol *Slow reader* I'd then spend the same amount of time trying to write a reply, it was so much fun >w< Seriously, it was the only time I ever enjoyed writing xD The more letters we wrote, the more we had to add to it until the moment you said you misplaced one of the letters and you sent me a 2 paged one xD Not that didn't stop me writing an essay >w>;;;

Ah crap. xD

DUDE OKAY HOLD UP
It's NEVER too late to learn if there's anything I've learnt from art history is that you're continuously improving everytime no one ever just stops, you're always learning. believe me. Hey hey you CAN do it, it just takes some people longer to grasp. But an anatomy book or look up tutroials, seriously that shit is super helpful
You still drew it and for me as well. Baby you don't even know how much it meant to me and still does like.. UGH I can't even talk about it or I'll cry
It's alright. I'm fussy about everything :L

Again if you're having trouble with colouring get some tutorials, check out =purplekecleon she does brilliant colour tutorials <33

Are you talking about in drawings or irl? because i'm pretty much the equivalent of a boy irl. xD

LOL
You did actually write an essay to that 2 page reply :'L and would you believe I fucking found it, it was like stashed in between all your letters in a folder I keep. Like why the hell did I put it there.
