Because I don’t have anything to post, have some improvement. The second one is from a month ago! The first one I just did recently.
The moral of the story is, draw draw and draw some more. Draw everyday, with every chance you get because you will get better. You’ll learn new techniques, new ways to shade, color, blend, and your art will get better as long as you draw. You wont improve if you don’t draw! The magic art fairy will not come down and bless you with the gift of illustration if you do not draw! This is just a month apart, imagine what will happen in a year. Don’t give up! And don’t let anyone tell you, not even yourself, that you will never get better because you will!
The worst part about depression is when you feel yourself starting to improve, you don’t want to tell anybody cause then everyone thinks you’re “better” and then the next time you have an episode they get angry with you cause they thought you were “better”.
“If you’re always questioning and allowing yourself to be humble enough to take your licks and accept the idea that your work can always be improved, then you’re much more inclined to learn from other people’s projects and become better.”
There always will be someone who’s better. Instead, focus on the great effort that you’re making. Practice makes perfect, but if you’re never perfect, that’s fine. I’m proud of you for getting better every day.
I took a little break from freelance work for a self-indulgent re-redraw of one of my very first all-digital pieces from 2005, which I already revisited for an improvement meme in 2009! now I want some lime sherbet.
“Everyone contains the universe within. Everything that you would like to change out there in the world must first be changed within. If you want to create a better world you must start by creating a better self.”
