Practice! Practice! (Progress?)

Current mood: calm

Before I started high school, I wasn't good at anything. Nothing. Did that bother me? No. It would now though. But I have found something that I think will work out someday in the future (besides guitar).

I love drawing. I only have 2 types of pencils: HB and 2B but I work with I got. I have some India Ink which has probably dried out by now, :(. I will use that medium occasionally.

Around middle school, I made a little series of comics that my friends liked reading. I don't remember exactly what I wrote or drew in them but I'm sure they were terrible .

Then came high school. I took a "proper" drawing class for 3 years and only learned about 1 and 2 point perspective. The older talented guys overshadowed everyone else and gained my teachers attention most of the time. Though I found out what I liked when I bought my first sketch book. I've gone through several of them in those years...

I started drawing anime in those sketchbooks; a noobish move



Those years I always had this desire to make a manga (comic) about a squad of soldiers preferable in a WWII setting. But it takes a lot of motivation to work on something so lengthy.

So here's a look at where I kinda began in drawing


-2006-2007


-2008  I played around with ink.


-Recent

I see now how practice can  make a difference in a little bit of time. It applies to everything you work at.

I still got a long way to go. I didn't write this blog to show off but if that's the way it appears then forgive me . I wanted to make my profile more interesting.

Her hair and eyes are fantastic, but her hair is what really what caught my attention. Fabulous job, it looks incredibly realistic. Beautiful.

i can definitely see the progress.

the first looks like a very talented 10 yr old's drawing. and it progresses.

but man! the biggest jump was from 07-08 to recent. that girl looks FABULOUS. i'm not trying to kiss your ass or anything but it really does show your talent.

was this just a girl you drew out of your head? or was it an actual person, like you had a pic in front of you and you drew it? cuz it she definitely looks like a real person.

good job man! :cheers:

wow it looks like top notch quality. better than the ones i've seen at carnivals where you pay ten bucks to sit in front of an "artists" and have him do a crappy job at drawing you :mad:
