So late to the game but I finally got around to doing this after seeing a 'show me your improvement thread' and noticed I didn't really improve that quickly with my art hahah
also, /PROCRASTINATING EVERYTHING
2004 is actually a selection of my 'best works' from the time, I seemed infatuated with living up to my name fhgklaj. I have most of my filenames preserved and it's hilarious and embarrassing to read. back then I would typ lyk dis lolzzzzzzzz ^.^ I used photoshop, open canvas, and painter. Looking at works from around this year make me want to cry and laugh at the same time, I first got my tablet this year and still have it today ;>
2005 is where I went trigger happy with photoshop effects LOL gradient and the grass brush were my BFFs. I became dependent on photoshop from here on and stuck to it.
2006 is the foggiest because I actually deleted works from that timeline ;< I think I started to get a bit serious with my stuff from around this point.
2007 idk. Some photoshop, some open canvas.
2008 is where I came across art idols agasang and YiLee so I started to try gearing my stuff towards their skill level around the end of the year.
2009 is probably the peak of my improvement LOL I started getting really anal about detailing and now actually wonder how I had the patience back then. I really want to gain back the patience I had back then. D;
2010 around this year I felt I could render anything I want how I wanted <; ...which resulted in me getting lazy with backgrounds durrrrr trying to get back into backgrounds again. In this year I broke my photoshop streak and started to really use SAI and now use the two in conjunction most of the time. <;
I think I improved rather slowly/steadily really. c: I've seen much more dramatic improvement in other artists but I think I'm pretty glad with the pace I'm going at. C: Also, a note to everyone and myself - never delete anything, back up your work regularly, and sign your works with name along with a date, it'll help loads for future reference. ;_;''
I keep forgetting where I put my old drawing backups so I guess this'll give me some reassurance for if I ever want to reminisce again :I
Feel free to laugh ;> or ask questions. or laugh and ask questions. ;>
