Improvement Meme 2005-2014 by AllisonStanley Improvement Meme 2005-2014 by AllisonStanley
This is an overview of my art career.

Progress was slow before 2009. Building a library of reference material was very important (as well as leaving highschool.)
I had all of these kicking around on my computer already so this was a breeze to make. I was blessed with access to scanners as a child.

Updated for year 2014! I aim to keep this up to date. It's therapeutic to review the year.

Your 11-year-old art was even better than my current art... Sad for me. xD
Nice work though; very inspiring~

Thank you. I was very pleased with that one myself. I never finished it because my photoshop file became corrupt. (It was a real downer.) I drew her again in box 1 of 2010. But I used ink and watercolor that time around.

I hate photoshop too.

It's not photoshop itself that I hate. It's the false information I had heard about it. For instance, people advertised how much faster they worked with it, but that was not the case for me.

It's amazing...and quite puzzling to see the progress you made in so little time.
Did you attend to art school?

Thanks.
I had a 6th grade watercolor class that I learned a lot in. My highshcool art/photoshop classes didn't help much however. One teacher said, "Let's make pancakes! Cooking is art!" I haven't taken any classes since then, just learning from books.

Time and effort are important. Although I don't have a teacher, I have gotten very helpful critiques online. The internet is an amazing resource for artists.

Merry Christmas!

Great improvement! : D Haha, your path is rather similar to mine too; I was so into Naruto and Bleach up to 2009 and then I finally started doing my own thing. I like seeing how that one guy of yours develops over the years too.
