Meme - 2002-2011 Improvement Meme by Ai-Bee Meme - 2002-2011 Improvement Meme by Ai-Bee
Edit December 2011: Added 2010 and 2011. If you've seen this before, it's nothing special, I just wanted to update my improvement. I think after 2012, I'll start a new one if I get around to it. ://D

But anyway yeah! I don't have much to say here that I didn't summarize on the drawing. Love seeing it all together though... :excited:

Onward to 2012 AND BEYOND!

-----------------------

I decided to include 02, which I've seen a few other artists do. I felt it was important because that's the year I make a pretty drastic jump in styles, getting exposed to anime more. Also, I had already scanned all the old art I could get my hands on! :noes:

art (c) me, all year round
Feel free to ask questions, giggle shamelessly at my angry fox chipmunk things, etc.

You can see like HUGE improvment in the first few years shown here (I wish I'd improve as fast I've been drawing at the exact same level for years now. But I'm a guy and I've noticed guys lack drawing talent so it's a lot more hard work :( :D ) I like 2005 and 2009 the most :D

Oh naw, gender doesn't have anything to do with it man! It's just about how much you push yourself to try new things honestly. :blushes: I'm sure you could improve once you find a good starting point.
Thanks so much though!

Yeah I know, but from my experience it sure seems so. Cause my sister (who's 2 years younger than me and hasn't been drawing nearly as long as I) can draw like ALOT better than me, but she's also kinda like me thinking her drawings are crap, and also some girls from my class who don't draw like almost at all can draw like times infinity better than me. Anyways I'm just whining now and that's not nice so anyways you're art is awesome and stuff :D

LoL. Not purposely copying off of the comment below... yes. According to the rate I'm progressing to the rate you've progressed, next year I will be awesome. I actually remember all those years ago when I drew people with enormous heads and hardly any face... (facepalm)

(also i have a boy in my class with the same hair as sara. felt like mentioning it. dunno why. :P )

So judging by this and the fact that I'm improving at approximately the same rate you did...

BY NEXT YEAR I WILL BE AWESOME 8D

[Translation: I adore your 2007 works. The clean lines and the coloring are the most win I ever want to be.]

Ah, humble beginnings. It's nice to think we all had one (or in my case three XD).
I would say in 2002 I could draw like that, but that's a lie, I was too busy learning how to write the alphabet :P still struggling
I really love these style progression memes, thank you for doing one! It shows you're not too embarrased with your early art :)
Thanks for sharing :D

So humble, oh goodness! :lol:
I think it's okay to poke fun at one's old work, as long as it's lighthearted. I've seen so many of these memes with artist comments saying things like "I still suck" "I haven't improved at all" "my old art is better" and other such negative things. No good, imo!

Thank you for looking! :love:

hot damn. Even way back in 02, you could (and can) still draw ten thousand times better than me D:>

I love your art though. I didn't start following until this year too, but like that other guy I've seen your work through Tyshea. Amazing to see what progress comes in 10 years.

Haha, I'm always flattered/embarrassed to hear people remember me via Ty. She worked really hard to plug me, that's for sure... :giggle:
Thanks so much though! I'm still stunned at my own improvement. :blush: :heart:

Brilliant improvement. I've only started watching you this year, but I've known of your work for years cause of Tyshea. It's really a shocker to see how much we can adapt our work with time. Thanks for putting this up, it's pretty inspiring for those of us in artistic ruts. :P

I always blush when people say they knew me through Ty's work. She did a lot to plug me. ~///~;
I still surprise myself sometimes, my improvement was both gradual and drastic at the same time. Even with ups and downs, I'm very proud of it, and I like to look back on it myself for inspiration. I'm happy to share it!
Thank you! :heart:
