2003-2017 Progress meme by MLeth 2003-2017 Progress meme by MLeth
2017 edit: It didn't take much to motivate me to update this thing again! A person commented on it and I was like "I gotsa update this shet" and so I did! It might inspire some people who might not have seen this the last time I updated it! Also bare in mind that the description of earlier years were written by a younger and weirder me!
Want to point out that I do call myself an "art student" in the 2005 description but I wasn't a proper art student - It was more just that specific orientation I chose going to "gymnasiet (16-18)" which only taught me the basics!

----

2013 edit: So instead of doing a summary of this year I decided to update this one! The last update was in 2009 so.. xD Here you go!

The following was written in 2009:

I thought I'd do this one like everybody else 8D And it was alot of fun looking through old crap. And it was really difficult finding the older stuff.. Had to dig through many piles of drawings and had to figure out which year they were from. Superdetective MLeth succeded in the end!

hahaha I thought you were the author of a page
to learn to draw, that's why I wrote in Spanish.

in a few words this example image comes out
that the drawing is improved with practice.

Haha I would've probably improved faster if I went to a proper art school xD But alas, I was too lazy to look that far ahead when I was younger! I've always been a "living-in-the-moment"-kind of guy!

And thanks! I still really like how Luna came out!

Probably yes, around 2010. I'm watching you with two accounts, now that I think about it. Cos this acc is only 4-5 years old.

And you where always a talented guy, I liked your works and stuff. But in the recent few years I really see you among the great pros. The, front page regular level pros.

That's honestly cool to hear - I mean I basically just churned out tons of stuff last year which kinda forced me towards the front page automatically but maybe I'm just biased towards my art haha

There are many artist who churns out tons of stuff, yet doesn't reach front. It means nothing without high quality... or some front page bait hype title like MLP. Ponies, Steven Universe and stuff like this, are usually tickets to front page even for mediocre artists, but whatever...

The first official one was made in 2012 when I was playing Battlefield 3! But now looking back at this meme, the girl from this piece: SMS (2009) sure resembles Brooke a lot xD She invaded my conciousness all the way back then!

Is it me, or has there been a major jump in terms of your background detail when your pictures started to become colored? Other than that, just an amazing and inspirational transition in your art throughout the years. Well done!
Reply
:iconmleth:
MLeth Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh, that might be because I didn't want to ruin my drawings by doing backgrounds when I was doing stuff traditionally! I could experiment more and take more chances when coloring digitally :D

all women with the hourglass figure lol
you really should try to draw some diversity....muscles and fat are fun to draw y'know...
(women with different skin colors too...)

I started drawing characters that I found cute or attractive and it just so happens that my personal preference is slimmer girls. I draw what I want but you're free to commission me with a specific body-type character when I open up again!
Reply
:iconapplewifey:
applewifey Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2017  Student Digital Artist
yo thats fine! draw what you want!! but i dont think people would commission you characters with fat/muscles because you have no examples of it, like not even sketches or practice drawings :c
it doesnt hurt to challenge yourself and draw new things TT__TT) diversity is encouraged !
