Ref History

Fri Jun 30, 2017, 9:16 PM
This is something I did a while ago and was thinking if I should post it.
Since I saw PrettyPassionut do it, I thought maybe I should toooooooooo *spins*

KTQNvsHZ by Honey-Zest

Soooooooooo basically the first time I drew my ref(myself) was in....*thinks*.. 2012... yes

Here it is!!! 
Jackyrefhistory by Honey-Zest

First Ref: Early 2012 - I thought it looked cute.... at the time 
Late 2012: I really liked it.. until I wanted to change it more into the "TD style" 
Early 2013: umm........ www.reactiongifs.us/wp-content…
Mid 2013: my thoughts at the time media.giphy.com/media/slIpYqha…
Late 2013: no comment. moving on,
Early 2014: This was cute......
Late 2014: BMW. Body. Made. Wrong
Early 2015: Same as last comment, with cuter hair..... -ish
Late-Early 2015-2016: Constant changes throughout here.... wasn't too sure
Late 2016: I got it! Liked this one....?
Early 2017: Too much make-up/ Looked way too weird for me
Current Ref Mid 2017: perfect ~   (at least that's what I think for now lol)
~
From Sai to Xara
From "Pretty" to Prettier
Looking through these changes you can definitely see how much I've improved!
Which should tell you to not give up! :p
Everyone gets better with practice!
But unlike Tammy, I don't have a ref since the start of my drawing career
I didn't have a ref until....2 years later
I just drew my OC Mariah a lot before
~

Should this be a challenge? 
Aka, #RefHistoryChallenge ?
Lol jk, I hate those dumb trends

And if you have enough refs to do it, then do it!!!!!!!

And post it here so I can see ~

Not only did you improve your character's design, but you also improved your art style.

Good job. :thumbsup:

Look at all this development! :love:
Honestly every ref has its charm I must admit, and of course your later ones are drawn with more precision and details so they pop out the most, but I think it's all good! <3
It's really a lot of fun seeing this development over time from you as well!
And wonderful and inspiring words to encourage others, I love it c;

Wow you've changed a lot!

Ha, interesting thing. I actually saw similar idea on the other site and wanted to try, but only made sketches. I guess I should actually finish it. It could be an expirience.

I've been literally waiting on this my whole life. I can finally die now, bye.

but no seriously at least you didn't start out with those awful Courtney remakes like 99.9% of the artists in this fandom. And let's not get on the Duncan ones oh god
