Sasha's first scene is a long one... Her back aches. Her elbows and knees are tired. Neck's stiff. She's chilly, her eyes are dry. She feels like she's been awake all night, but she's not sure -- if she dozed off, she dreamt she was right here, strapped down, in the dark. And she feels so needy. It's starting to get light outside... surely, you'll let her go soon... please... please...
This went around one year and everybody and their dog did one, but I'm keeping it going. I even added every damn year I could manage.
So here you have it, dug out of bins and storages for your viewing and laughing pleasure. I've lost generally everything from when I was a kid, and only some drawings done for family way back when even exist anymore. The photos at the top were recently sent to me by my mom.
its been a long journey on a long road with still much further to travel down that road.
Not everyone agrees with me, but for me, this is why talent doesnt exist. They've done studies, its not magic or science, its training your brain. I started out shitty like everyone else. I drew for fun. I found something that got me drawing and I played around. I didnt do art seriously for the years of perhaps 12-16 and from 12-19 when I did mostly anime there were barely any inprovement at all in anatomy or stiffness or line clarity until the very end when I started to take it more seriously. I've probably heard every view point and opinion on this, so spare yourself your time and mine by not writing me paragraphs about it.
So then I gave up video games, and devoted the time to drawing instead. I studied anatomy and worked hard and what do you know, now we're talkin. I started getting better. Going to show no amount of a so called "talent" will really help you, will it? you can draw for years and give up like, "i must not have talent" because you dont get better.
not to lecture, but if you take anything away from this. its put your nose down, study everything you can about art, and dont draw only anime and from your head and expect to get much or any better for long periods of time.
dont let people tell you art cant be your career or take away the pleasure you get from it. it can be nothing to you, or everything. it can be a part of your life or change your life constantly the way it changes mine.
dont ever stop drawing. you can lose it, and I almost did.
and if i can give any one part of important advice.......be yourself and the rest will follow.
I'm not very proud of my work this year. I made very little progress and I'm slightly disappointed in myself. The only thing I'm proud of in this gallery is February, because I got a DD on it, and I'm so so so proud of it, but I have not done anything better than it. In 2011, I want to use COLOR, not just neutrals, because you know how much I love neutral colors, and I want to experiment with emotion, not just sadness and depression. I want to get better with proportion and have creative ideas.
Anyway, I have to go. Love you guys, thank you for all your support this year.

I was looking through old stuff in my gallery and thought about doing a quick 15 minute touch-up + post process on this piece. I painted a few more hair strands and touched up her lips and left arm. But most of it was just Motion Blur, Selective Color Balance adjustment and Hard Light on the top most layer.
