Improvement Meme 2015



An old thing, I did it first six years ago (oh the time flies...). And now, with the end of one year and beginning of another, I thought it might be interesting to make a continuation. So here it is.

It's a nice retrospect. Great idea to look back and compare. =D Most people who do this meme are drawing characters, especially portraits, but I thing it can be quite interesting even with my landscapes, sceneries, buildings etc. as it is still possible to follow some development or (hopefully) improvement through it. :-)

EDIT: Some people asked for pictures even earlier than 2003. Alright, so there it is. :-) It has been fun to delve into my old "archives" – I even rediscovered many things I had forgotten long ago. ;-)

About the pictures - most of them from 2003 onwards are on dA, so if you wish to look at them, here are the links:

to je super, prekvapuje me, jak jsou nektere z tech starych obrazku dobre, treba vase chata, nebo erb stromajdy. ty prvni domky vypadaji strasne stylove, mohl by to byt potisk na tricko. a obrazek se spodni polovinou slunce vypada, ze misto nebe je more. a mlyn ma zajimavy pudorys.
mustek v khazad-dum je zaimavy, protoze na prvni pohled vypada, jako stojici cerna postava a co je to za vesmirnou lod / robodraka nad hradem?

to je neskutecne, tvuj pokrok v krajinach a stavbach, v pouzivani barev a propracovanosti.
