So almost a year ago I did my first Undertale themed piece! (It was also the first ever piece I did my pencils traditionally and the colors digitally!)
Back then, I LOVED this piece SO MUCH. I was SO PROUD lol. I had really put in quite the amount of effort into it, and thought ‘oh wow. this is the best piece ever.’
And then fast forward just shy of a year…I hated it!
I could’t stand it. I would look at this piece compared to some of my others and just deflate. It was lacking in composition and my coloring had changed.
Now don’t get me wrong, it is still very close to my heart! To those that have prints of this piece, THANK YOU <3 And to my friend who purchased the original, You’re the bomb!
It was just time for me to grow as an artist, and try out some new things I had learned.
(Sounds like a break up LOL)
But anyway. The speed paint video of this goes live tomorrow morning at 11AM, but I really wanted to show what progress looks like!
The past couple weeks I have felt very defeated and angsty against my artwork. I felt as if I was making no progress…I wasn’t any good, and that my art just wasn’t cutting it. However after getting slapped in the face by WalkingMelons ( a couple times) I started to come out of my funk.
I decided to redo this piece just to see how far I had come in a little under a year. And seeing the two pieces side by side makes me smile, knowing that there is always room to grow! We are only limited by what we think we can and can’t do. If you asked me a year ago if I ever thought I would be drawing like what I am now, I would think NO WAY!
And so now I am more than excited to see where I will be NEXT YEAR!
I really love your comics Ronya-senpai, do you think you could give some tips on how you draw/plan your comics? ;;w;;
