this is probably one of the only old legitimate art pieces of alex that hasn’t been erased off completely (it’s the icon for my old soundcloud). this was around the time where he still had a goatee and whiskers and oh my god this was bad
I drew this picture of Link in 2012. It took me a while to draw, and it been my profile pic ever since. Now, 2 years later, having improved tremendously in drawing. I look back and ask: “How did it take me a ½ hour to draw this?!”
We don’t even become “decent” artists overnight. And quantifying “good” and “bad” art is difficult to begin with. If your only measurement of “good” is whether or not something looks exactly like it did in your head as it does on paper/whatever then you’re probably being too hard on yourself.
When I moved from my childhood home last year, I stumbled across a treasure trove of really old art from when I was a kid. This one in particular really spoke to me. I keep this drawing nearby so that I can look at it and truly recognize how far I have come as an artist. That Charmander drawing is from when I was probably 8; Charmander was my very first Pokemon card and I studied it very hard.
As kids, when we draw we hardly consider whether something we drew is good or bad. Or at least, I didn’t. I drew because it was fun and basically never stopped. The drawings may not have been “good” but it didn’t seem to phase me because here I am 17 years later still going:
