Did you ever wondered how my drawing style looked before the anime influences kicked in?... no? ahh... too bad! Sweating a little... 

I made this "poster" for a presentation I had for my English class about my activities during the week. During those days I only used to draw when a school assignment required it, so I didn't take it very seriously.

The interesting fact about these particular drawings is that it was made only a couple of month before I decided to practice everyday to improve my skills, so this was literally the best I could do at the time. 

So if you ever want to get better at doing something, you have to keep in mind that it will take a lot of time and patience... and I might not be the greatest artist out there, but you can't tell I haven't improved :lmao:

If you follow this tweet you can see some samples of sketches after I decided to start practicing: Link

Some times it's a humbling in a way and gives you perspective to see your old stuff. It shows how far you've come and how far you've yet to go. I tend to forget that. I wanted to back into drawing anime myself but it's been forever what skills I had rusted away like it got killed by the Thanos snap. But looking back on my stuff while it sounds bad that I realized I wasn't a good as I though I used to be, I found it comforting to realize that the climb back up isn't a huge as my depression & doubt made it out to be.

In 2009 I thought I had already everything figured out and I was already "pro"... what a foolish thought :lmao:. When I uploaded my first piece to Deviantart I realized that I had still way too much to learn XD

I'm already getting better at animation and I sucked at it, the sooner you start practicing the faster you'll learn regardless on how much time it takes you to get there, something is still better than nothing :O

I wish I could share the entire progression. I have tons of sketches from that time, but I haven't found a place where I can organize all the scans properly.
