Please stop and read this.

Never. Stop. Creating. Art. 

I don’t care if you think its bad, or if you hate your art style… Or if you straight up think that your art will never become what you want it to be. If you stop now, all of that might just come true. 

If you stop, you will never be able to see the improvement you would have made if you had just kept going. 

YOU DO GET BETTER. 

Even if it takes a while, and usually it will, you will improve and your art will change over time. It takes time to get better.

Here’s some I did a while back as examples:

An art piece that I submitted to DeviantArt on April 17, 2014. Two years and four months as of today (8.26.16). Lining isn’t terrible but it could be better, hardly any shading, and the colors don’t match the environment at all. Not to mention the use of the wood on the bottom…

This is the first art I posted on Tumblr one year later. My shading got better,  though the lining is still iffy… I decided to draw more people, and my anatomy is looking ok. Not perfect, but the positions don’t look uncomfortable.

This is my favorite one of this month, this year. My shading, anatomy, and lining have gotten much better, if not exceeded what I thought I could do. Not to mention I put more work and detail into it. (Including wrinkles, and actually drawing hands instead of just stuffing them into pockets)

You might not think it’s true, or it will never happen… Just trust me on this. 

I want you to go find the oldest art you have, and compare it to your most recent drawing, whether it be a full piece, or just a couple of doodles. See what you’ve done. See how you and your style has changed and grown. Understand that things like this take time, and that you and your art will change.

Art is hard, and I get that. I understand that things can get complicated and frustrating. Take breaks when you need to, and come back only when you want to. Don’t push you yourself. If creating art becomes a chore to do, don’t work so hard on something that you can’t find fun in.

Twilight: “On one hoof, they’re both ADORABLE and want to cuddle. On the other, one is my lifelong idol and mentor from fillyhood and the other is my GIRLFRIEND. I need to find a way to get them back to normal before I lose it and before their absence from the affairs of state become too obvious.”

Celestia: “After ice cream!”

Twilight: “…After ice cream.”

I sure could’ve used someone like Luna while I was burning the midnight oil. For those of you who have finished finals or don’t even have finals, congrats! You’re free!! Expect more updates to come ^^))

It’s Day 3 now and I’m gonna post something I’ve never posted on here before. Bad art time, guys. These are the original concept sketches that eventually led up to the creation of this blog!

2 years ago, I was originally drawing these for the @lunadoodle blog where I drew a doodle of Luna a day to submit there. But I kept drawing Luna with Celestia and I absolutely loved it. I really enjoyed drawing the two of them just being cute and interacting together. So much so that I made this tumblr.

In the description for the first doodle: “ Who knows maybe I’ll use it in a comic someday.” pffhaha little did I know. It’s really cool to just see the style develop, and just remember where I was back then.

Anyway yeah enough with me rambling. Hope you guys enjoy this little piece of blog history ^^
