HAHAH this is embarassing don't look all of my animu stuff, not including trads, realism, cartoon and other styles because my dA is mostly anime anyway i do this every august-september i don't know why but i just get this urge to go down memory lane and bash my old art :< to be honest i really don't know where my art is going anymore, sometimes i feel like drawing super cute moe anime, sometimes i feel like drawing in a cartoony style, and sometimes i just wanna do still lifes, but most of the time i just want to do something other than anime i am a confused stuck cookie :s
anyway for the rest of the year i want to be able to develop a better grasp of anatomy (both male and female), i want to learn how to paint better and i want to learn how to draw better backgrounds. aside from that, i want to be able to draw in other styles so i'll have to study hard for that *^*9 i wonder though if i can do it U__U;;; i hope this year's figure drawing classes help! so far i've done nothing but butcher the renaissance masters' drawings. :<
I love these memes! It makes me feel...a lot less depressed LOL. I think you've defos improved quite a bit, even if it's more in technical terms and lots of smaller tweaks. I think if you feel that you've regressed, maybe it's time to really try something crazy and completely different from your normal style? You don't even have to post it up, but go do something way different - it might kickstart your muse and help you move forward!
Keep your chin up, you have incredible talent ^_^ Keep moving forward, that's all you can do! We're always learning and always improving, so long as we keep at it. This is my mantra, and I'm someone who lost their muse a long time ago but is determined to regain it, so it's an uphill battle for me - for you, who's already leaps ahead, it's more a matter of not stalling out methinks! I'M ROOTIN' FOR YA. LEARN LOTS THIS YEAR!
Ah, 2008. The year I first got acquainted with you (if my memory serves me right). And all that TWEwY stuff, man, makes me wish ~Imimi-Ai and ~Astre-Thief were here already at the time so they'd be all over it!
2009 shows a good amount of improvement. And yeah, I gotta owe it mostly to you for finally getting my head deeper into Clannad... that time now feels to me just like when Tomoya and Nagisa first crossed paths that fateful day of spring! Also, yay for Ho-kago Tea Time xDDD
I think it was 2011 in which you've started producing such REALLY marvelous art indeed, that tea party pic is one such example. :3 And boy, it just kept getting better and better, truly.
And now, this year - to be honest, the so-called regressions you were speaking of, they probably really aren't negative at all; one could say that you're acknowledging your roots in a way. Maybe you may have reached your peak (since you're now capable of producing ultra-marvelous non-moe art)... but then again, who knows. And yeah, really, you deserve a good pat on the back for being able to do that variety of styles you speak of.
