Looking back was fun, but man, I was one depressed teenager back then. Going to college was the best thing ever, it allowed me to distant myself from the source of all my woes.
I'm on spring break now so I'll finally have time to get back to all those notes and commissions that's been pilling up
Edit: Read this if you think I'm lying about my progress... (as in I couldn't possibly have drawn those things when I was 13... should I be flattered or offended?)
Some people said "Wow, you drew those when you're 13?", but someone is accusing me of avoiding those questions (wtf, aren't those just rhetorical questions?) and how "the facts don't add up". All in all, this person thinks I got something to hide. What can I say, all those works are in my gallery, submitted in those years. If I plagiarized, don't you think I would have been caught already?
If I said in the comment section of a drawing that I drew it years before submission, but in this meme the dates are the dA submission dates, then that's because I don't keep track of my dates. When I made this meme, I just looked at the submission dates on dA. If there's a discrepancy in dates, then it just means I actually drew them earlier than I thought...
I know the quality fluctuates a lot. How well I draw depends on how inspired I am. Also, you can tell by browsing any artist's gallery that their latest work isn't always their best work. I also switched from traditional to digital media, and that took some time to get use to so my initial digital drawings weren't all that great.
Lastly, I have many styles. I don't believe one style is the best and draw only that. I try to create new styles depending on the subject of the drawing. Basically, I believe style should match the content.
If you still think I'm lying then there's nothing I can do.
I like your explanation, but sorry, you weren't 13 nor 14 nor 15 when you drew all these... every artist improves, not always in style and favorite topics, but definitely in basics (lines, shadowing, composition). Barely a change can be found in the drawings you claim to have drawn over 6 years - yes, in style they are some, but not in technical progress. Especially over the time becoming an adult you always see differences, and therefore I think that you indeed may have something to hide.
Don't understand me wrong. You can do whatever you want. But as you see in the comment section, it is very discouraging for other artists - many of them as young as you claim to have been - to see the very advanced drawings of 2003.
If I am completely wrong, please don't feel insulted: Feel like an amazing, incredibly talented person if your claims are true. If I am right, though: Shame on you.
Also I think all your suffering made you become a real passionate artist. I sense the pasion in every one of your artworks.... there is so much soul in every piece. I wish I could put my soul into my artworks too but idk how to do that
haha, everybody is taking about her being so talented at age 13 and being bummed about it but you can't let it discourage you from drawing. Everybody grows differently as an artist and has different styles XD
i was wondering how you drew when you are much younger
and when i found this
looked at 13
i was shocked
you are so talented, sempai!! And Im glad that you decided to become an artist because i have few friends who are just like you but doesnt really want to become one (something like wasting their talents)
keep up the good work~!!
You're one of my favorite artists on dA.
Your mastery of light, color, perspective. You give everything you draw an almost surreal and beautiful style. Thanks for all you do<3
