I love browsing through art blogs because I'm so happy that even the most talented artists (such as you) started in the same place I am
It took me a second to figure out what this meant and then I realized you mustve gone all the way back to my old junk on this blog. And that’s not even the oldest! In 2014 I deleted my work from before fall 2012. I wish I hadn’t in retrospect.
But yes, every artist starts somewhere and I’ll do you one better than just my old art on here. On my laptop I don’t have access to my terrible anime tracing sketches from when I was a freshman in high school, but I can show you stuff from hmm…my junior year of of high school?
I believe this is from early 2012?
aaaand then here’s one of my most recent works
I was never “the artist” growing up. I was a writer. Heck, I still don’t self identify as the artist in my groups of friends! I didn’t start drawing seriously until I was almost 17, and I just turned 21 a few months ago. “Talent” is nothing but the outcome of passion and hard work. I hope everyone recognizes this
