I can still see the good in the stuff I liked at the time, but I can also see where I've improved. So I guess it's half and half.

The art from a year ago (Or more) that I've made makes me die.
The art I made over 6 months ago makes me sad
The art from 5 months ago makes me question my classmates eyes
The art from 3 months ago makes me question my art teachers sanity
The art from last month I don't give a crap about

The art Im making right now makes me wonder why I still do it (Meh....................... I don't like my art at all.................. It was fine before all of my classmates didn't give my drawings a second glance........ and wow this is long)

My art style is the exact same from a half a year ago. I haven't learned anything new except how to draw an anatomically correct wolf. I only use it in ref sheets though. My characters are always some kind of hybrid or a Skottle (my species that I made up[don't know if anyone wants one-I'm busy with Toki]
Reply
:iconspitfiresonice:
SpitfiresOnIce Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well I don't really see any examples of your species so that way it's hard to get people interested in them :P

:iconkealeonnasilverstar:
KeaLeonnaSilverStar Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I made the Toki post that way cuz I already had the design done. I just needed a couple maximum things to add. I like the design I have though.

Skottle are not finished yet and aren't a species yet, so I don't really wanna take the risk of stealing the design while I'm still making the backstory. I know its probably not going to happen, but i have trust issues.

Es, but I need to keep my old art to show that I'm improving at least a little bit and stuff. I find art journeys very interesting so I want to do one for when I'm older.

Almost everyday, which is why I keep on re-doing some art pieces or not upload anything. :dummy: Its not perfect.

My friend still has a drawing that I drew in like freshmen yearn (they like to remind me about it) and looking at it now... I die a bit on the inside. It lacks so many things! I keep tellingthem to burn it but they keep saying no. Even when I say I'll draw her a better one. Up to this day, that is my only physical artwork that is still alive.
