I have found incontrivertible proof that I have improved as an artist. This should of course be a good thing, but it's actually crushingly, horrifically embarrassing. I didn't think much could embarrass me, but it turns out that "Me from the past" can do it without even trying.
I found a fanart that I drew a couple of years - and it is apalling. I don't mean "bad" or "I do better now" - I mean it looks like something a well meaning but unfortunately retarded child would draw, painstakingly and over the course of several hours and a number of chewed crayons. Worst, I didn't just draw this; I drew it, liked it, and e-mailed it to the subje
I've been improving a lot recently, thanks in no small part to the masterworks of instruction provided by Andrew Loomis and Jack Hamm (if you don't have access to one of those, you really should). These steps forward leave me more and more often able to stand back from a finished piece and go "Yes!", where before it was "Okay, I can see what I was going for there." This got me thinking again about why I do it.
I do it, of course, because I enjoy it and no other reason. Specifically I putting the ideas in my head out where people can see them: a new character, an illustration of a point, or a joke that I want to share. I feel I'm at my
I haven't been uploading much to my gallery these days, but don't take that mean I'm not drawing much. I'm drawing loads.
I've reached that fun stage in artistic development where I know just enough to be aware of all the flaws in my work and not actually want to show such imperfect pieces off. This is having really good effects; I'm critiquing my own stuff better, drawing the same piece multiple times to correct mistakes and try out new things, basically learning and developing a lot.
Just not producing much for your delectation and delight. For the same reasons, though, when I do upload stuff again it'll be better than ever!
Great gallery. The mario kart facts caught my interest. Well, there is one character who needs mentioning: The Sharker. With the advent of a guest, the guest will stay in last and get a star power, then ram the leaders until their registered buddy is in first. The scourge of karters everywhere. How to deal with: fight fire with fire. Bring a sharker of your own to punish the other sharker. Hopefully a battle will start between the two and distract the real sharker from performing his duties.
