The 23th november 2003, I drew my first "shit".

It's not easy to do a retrospection of some years of works. The idea is to show or, " to testify" ( even if I know the meaning of this word in english is different than french ) my course since the beginning.

It's' not an endding, but I reach the dawn of my profession of psychologist, and I have to give this period of my life for lost. It doesn't mean I will stop to draw ( my new drawing is coming at the first weekof december), " mais je veux témoigner de ma singularité, de ce Cyril qui n'est plus vraiment Aquasixio, mais qui refuse de l'oublier car il fait parti de lui. Je veux en garder la trace, pour moi, pour vous."

That's why, once again naked front of you, I give you my Retrospection-Introspection.

The links are the gathering of the drawings ( + drawings not shown) in real size, for each period.

SHORT GLOSSARY

GO GAIA: [link]

NOOB : ( [link] )
A newbie is a newcomer to a particular field, the term being commonly used on the Internet, where it might refer to new, inexperienced, or ignorant users of a game, a newsgroup, an operating system or the Internet itself. The term is generally regarded as an insult, although in many cases more experienced/knowledgeable people use it in purposes of negative reinforcement, urging "newbies" to learn more about the field or area in question.

OEKAKI : ( [link] )
Oekaki is the Japanese term to describe the act of drawing, literally meaning "to doodle". On the Internet, an Oekaki is a message board system that revolves around computer art created by a local art program. Oekaki artists often post their art to other websites, such as personal pages or free gallery websites, in addition to the original board.

Your journey is inspiring. Nothing becomes uglier when you put your whole heart and soul to it; and it is shown in your progress and motivation to be known through those years. I wish I can be like you, someone who has time to draw. I'm also studying to become a psychologist (but as a Liberal Arts student though), still sometimes i don't even have time to draw or to be bitten with any inspiration to do what you have done. I admire your growth, ambition, and works. I wish I can be as good as you, as I find a style that is absolutely a "ME" brand. You're amasing! Please don't stop doing what you do best! To inspire!!!

I can't believe your a psychologist! I want to be a psychiatrist or psychologist when I grow up. I still want art as a hobby though, and I am soooo happy I found a person who actually is that! Yay! <3

Wow, that's great and inspiring for me!
I'm a "noob" now, and i'm trying to take a cue from you and other deviant-members, but I can't do anything ç_ç It's so demoralizing...
I know that it takes some time, but I try and we try again without concluding nothing ç_ç
Thank you for your support and your fantastic paintings ;)

Oh my... this made me feel so good :heart:
I'm still starting to make digital art, so I'm quite a noob ^^;
Though it is obvios, seeing like this that even the biggest artists start as noobs makes me feel better and want to improve my skills each time more; makes me feel very motivated! Thank you a lot for this!

It is very nice to see how you've improved and became this great artist, I wish I improve too :dalove:

Thank you very much! This means a lot to me, I'm not a student who major in art, but without it, my life is boring, maybe, a bit meaningless. I'm also afraid of losing my way of drawing in the future... too many things, too busy... and your meme inspires me a lot! Merci beaucoup!! :D (I've just learned French recently, not really good though)

It was very interesting to read about your growth  as an artist. I would like to say that I'm very inspired and can't express how I'm thankful for you. I still thought that I'm too old (I'm 23) to create something special, but now I know I'm a stupid girl :)
It's really hard to find your own style, and it is the most important thing, I think. I hope, I'll find it someday :)
Continue drawing, be always inspired and keep people inspired as well! :)
