Yearly Art Progression

#1 Post by VenusEclipse » Wed Jan 26, 2011 4:24 am

Are you unsatisfied with your drawings? Here are some images to inspire you.
I would post the link to the article, but it's just a paragraph saying that "practice makes perfect."
And I don't like linking to sites that are not child safe. I'll just post the images. :)

Here are some images to hopefully inspire you. Keep practicing. Don't give up!

http://img2.sankakustatic.com/wp-conten ... ns-001.jpg
http://img4.sankakustatic.com/wp-conten ... ns-011.jpg

If I shouldn't directly link to images on their site, an admin can take them down.
The link was sent from a friend who wanted to inspire me, so I wanted to share it too. :)

Maybe you'll like to make and show one of your own for inspiration.

This actually is amazing. It shows how much you can really improve over time.

Look! Look! Even a baby improves :D

Wow, that is really inspiring. And it shows that even Japanese artists have their periods of awful, wonky colored pencil anime drawings (I always thought that was strictly an American phenomenon...) :lol:

I've improved a lot over the past 15 years or so. Unfortunately I don't have much to show of my older work. I either gave a lot of it away or it all got lost in different events. I can tell you though that practice makes a big difference over time.
