Progress I've done since 2008 by WojtekFus Progress I've done since 2008 by WojtekFus
I decided to share with you my very first digital works I did, when I started out in 2008. I find these comparisions very inspirational as they reveal more human side of one's journey. Believe me, it's all hard work. If you are devoted and willing to sacrifice your time and just DO that stuff, you will succeed. It always takes a lot of tears and blood, so I won't say it's an easy path. You will make mistakes, you will doubt, but finally you will be able to force through that crap and do what you love for a living. Take a long look at these works at the top. They are extremely amateur. I've known that back then and I was in love with the quality of work people were putting out there. And my mission became to match that quality. To express myself at the highest possible quality level. Where I am now, I don't think I have even touched that, but I am on my way as you can see on that comparision. Now go do that yourself. Believe me, there is no talent involved. Everyone can do it. But not everyone REALLY wants to. If you are the one who really wants it, take a brush/pencil and do what must be done right now. It's totally doable and you will fall in love with the process. Stay strong and believe in yourself.

I am so impress by your lack of modesty that I'm just ashamed for you. You're barely at the level where he was in 2008 Dude, if you want to progress take control over your ego ^^
F-Dust Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2014  Professional Traditional Artist
very interesting,  did you go to college or was it all self taught?
AmbiguityArt Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I know you probably don't have time to answer, but on the off chance that you do... How much would you say photo studies have helped your work? Is there any particular sort of practice you would recommend, or do you think just any sort of fundamental drills work? I've got nothing but time, and I'd really like to get into some hardcore practice sessions, but I just don't know where to start, and I don't think aimless drawing is really getting me anywhere fast.
mistressyuki Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
So true! I'm really glad that you posted this. I'm trying to get my digital art to have the same quality as my traditional works and I only just this month stopped falling flat on my face. I have a long way to go to get to a similar level as you but its great that you're doing things like this. This is what makes you a great artist.

Thanks for sharing this with us. When i see the quality of your work right now , it gives me a lot of motivation. I also found your text very helpful. I'm in this phase where you started a few month ago the journey , you work on this everyday and the things don't come up the way you would like them to come ... It's really helpful to know that even great artists like you had some "doubts period" where you don't believe you can do it. Thanks man, you gave me this good feeling, and i will remember that the next time i will face some issues and troubles when drawing and painting.
al1n7a Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2013  Student Filmographer
amazing effort! I hope I can progress like that
Myselfsama Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I'm so glad you said that. It really has nothing to do with talent, just how much time and effort your willing to dedicate and sacrifice to becoming better. Being passionate about it. I always feel like when people say "your so talented!" or "you were given a gift", I find it almost insulting. Because it really underestimates the thousands of hours you spent through headaches, "tears and blood" like you said. Though digital painting is no longer my ultimate goal I still admire your determination and growth.

Dude, this is awesome. It pretty much inspired me to start a DeviantART page; thanks so much!

Nahkuman Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
thanks for sharing this WojciechFus. I really admire your work.  I could tell the hard work you've been through to do this as I am trying to push myself to get better.
You are definitely someone I look up to, as it is just inspiring to see your progress.

All the best of luck, and I hope one day I can meet you in person, and be on par with you to talk about art and enjoy the process of creating art with you.

i still cant draw people :P  guess that takes  5 years. i only have two more to go
Reneder Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah, i agree. The mightiest talent (and maybe the only one that exists) is the unbendable sense of purpose...(hope i translate it right)  With this you can achieve everything. So everyone - hold you breath and keep practicing! :)
Always loved to see anyone's progress, it's really very inspiring. Thanks for posting!

ArtFurry Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2013  Student General Artist
so fucking impressive :O 
you have improved alot :wow: 
giselleukardi Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2013   Digital Artist
I love this. When I see artists telling other artists to keep pushing it really gives me more motivation to work harder and keep my passion alive. It's easy during the process to forget that these things take time and no one's really born with the ability to paint like a master. No one ever gets there without having to put in a great deal of effort - sometimes this can be easy to forget. Anywho thank you for this! It really has inspired me :hug:

You are doing amazingly well and have developed your very own unique (and beautiful!) style. I look forward to seeing what you can do in the future! =)
Danny-J Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2013
It's crazy how far you've come. Extremely inspiring for someone like me who is trying to improve but is getting a bit frustrated (and demotivated) at times in the process.

Gratuluję samozaparcia i talentu wspartego ciężką pracą, bo arty są naprawdę wybitnie piękne ;)
No i szczęścia w przyszłości ;)
