The other day I saw :icondamaimikaz:'s contest regarding improvement memes. Unfortunately the only project I was interested in re-doing fell outside of the 1 year/year and a half mark (boo hiss!)....so this is NOT A CONTEST ENTRY.  But if you have some spare time before January 1st 2017, try redrawing something for her contest. The Journal regarding the contest is located here: damaimikaz.deviantart.com/jour… (shameless plug for an awesome idea for a contest!)

 So I opted to do my redo anyway, even though it can't be in the contest, and see if I improved drawing my muggle face from 2014. From what I can tell, I'm able to pick up subtle shadows better (as long as I have a ref). Colored light is both fun to draw....and ridiculously difficult. It took me like what...10 years to notice that I needed to put a reflection on my glasses? WELL AT LEAST I'M NOTICING IT NOW....while I can still see. XD

I had warm highlights down a long time ago...but cool highlights? That boggled my mind for 10 min. Like "Why am I putting light purple highlights in my hair? This can't be right..." and after multiple checking...I gave up and accepted the fate of putting purple in my hair. Not that I have anything against the color purple....it was just weird to get a certain kind of colored highlight that they ended up being complimentary to the warm colored light. XD

So I think every year I should try to draw myself to see how I'm progressing art wise. Keep it simple like within a 2 hour period to see if I can make it more realistic than the last one. Or draw a decent background....*shrug* XD I'll try to remind myself to do it next December....... XD
